In today's world of blockbuster car chases and super hero films, Ira Sachs' (Love is Strange) Little Men is an interesting change.  Delving into the ideas of childhood friendship and adulthood fights, it is a juxtaposition of innocence and lost ideals and dreams.   It reminds you of what was once good and pure and how it all changes....

(Jennifer Broderick)  08/22/2016 10:45 AM EDT
The Huntsman: Winter's War began with controversy before filming even started.   A change in stars, a change in directors, and no one knew what the movie would end up like considering one of the main characters, Snow White, was no longer a real part of the film.   Wondering how the story line would reconcile itself starting out before...

If you look up the definition of a war dog in the Urban Dictionary, you find, "A political and/or military person who's immorally eager to encourage a people or nation to go to war."  For arms dealers, this is exactly what they are hoping for and when President Bush went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, they couldn't wait to suppl...

Imagine, that one day, your mom tells you that you're not being sent off to summer camp, but instead, being sent in a pod to cross the galaxy to protect your younger cousin. Sounds like the worst babysitting job ever, huh? It gets worse… your pod gets shoved off course by the planets explosion (as it kills your parents and everyone you know)... Read More
