In 22 years, Director Alex Proyas (The Crow) has made 6 major motion pictures.  Some have become cult classics, while others were less than memorable.

Mining is hard work and dangerous.   In fact, on average, over 1000 miners die each year.  When a cave in occurs, any survivors eventually die under the rock because companies find it hopeless and expensive to even try to rescue them.  Luckily, in 2010, that wasn't the fate for 33 Chilean miners, as the world watched and hoped f...

To some, Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender; X-Men: First Class) was brilliant.  To others, he was an over-inflated ego, and, to a select few, he was the closest to God they think they will ever get.  Whatever he was, there is no denying he was a visionary and most probably brilliant.   While there have been a few movies and books a...
