If you are anything like me, you loved 1999's The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser (School Ties; Gods and Monsters) and Rachel Weisz (The Bourne Legacy).  It was fun, well done and included some interesting ideas about history.  When I heard it was being "reimagined" starring Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible) and Russell C...

Disney is always trying to reinvent itself; from new attractions at the theme parks to merchandising to their latest animated successes like Frozen and Moana.  The same can be said for one of their newest ventures, turning their animated movies into live action films.  First, there was Maleficent then Ci...

Arnold Schwarzenegger got his start in films as an action star.  Movies like The Terminator, Predator, and Total Recall showed off his muscles and his ability to brandish a weapon but certainly didn't stretch his acting ability.  After a stint as the Governor of California, he is once again back in films and takin...

Disney has a habit of re-releasing classic movies from videotape to DVD to Blu-ray as they find a way to re-digitalize and/or improve the colors and animation.  Bambi's Anniversary Edition is the latest in a long line of classic movies chosen by Disney to be added to its Signature Collection. It's great to see these older films back in... Read More

If you enjoy Dan Brown's books, Tom Hanks in his movies, or any intrigue and conspiracy theories about the Church, Vatican, and the Pope, then HBO's The Young Pope is the show to watch.  This new show doesn't have the action scenes that Games of Thrones has or the suspense factor of Westworld, but it has a young pope w...

On the heels of a prior blockbuster movie from 2013, Lionsgate releases Ex Machina (2015), taking us into the world of A.I. like we have never seen or even imagined before.  Visual effects galore even impressed the Academy so much that they awarded Ex Machina the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.  Ex Machina&...

You know that if Oprah Winfrey (The Color Purple) and her production company are going to be involved in a film that it is going to be a drama and generally based on either a book or real life events.  In this case, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is both. Winfrey rarely gets involved in a project unless it has something to say and t... Read More

Judge Dredd made his debut in British comic books as early as the late 1970's as a law enforcement officer in Mega City One, a dystopian society set sometime in the future. His authority includes arresting, convicting, sentencing and, if necessary, executing criminals in an effort to keep the peace. Then in 1995 Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) broug... Read More
