Everyone knows the events of that fateful day in November 1963.  As President Kennedy's motorcade made its way down the street in Texas, shots rang out and numerous lives were changed forever.  Closely behind the President's car was Lyndon B. Johnson, Vice President of the United States.  Within hours, he would take the oath ... Read More

He was just a little boy and his bear living in the countryside of England. Who knew the stories of his moments at play would eventually become the most beloved book of all time. Not only did they bring a country, and the world, back from the depressing post wartime but also they have endured for almost 100 years. Unfortunately, for the real Christ... Read More

For the last 30 years, Global Warming and climate change have been discussed and debated.  Nowadays, they are at the forefront of almost any political conversation.  But what if we could resolve all of that?  What if we could launch satellites into the atmosphere that could control and alter weather patterns making our current climat...

Take a coming of age/teenage angst movie, add a murder mystery, stir vigorously, throw it against the wall and see what sticks.  Throw in some the best, young talent Hollywood has to offer right now. Finally, give it some obscure name and you have the formula for November Criminals.  Starring Ansel Elgort (The Fault In Our Stars) and Chlo... Read More

For those who were not alive when Pearl Harbor was attacked, the biggest terrorist attack ever on United States soil happened on September 11, 2001.  The Taliban targeted major buildings in the Northeast setting off a wave of panic and patriotism across this country.  Of course, this also set our military into action and, unbeknownst to m...

With the success of 2014's The Lego Movie and 2017's The Lego Batman Movie, Warner Bros. decided to continue the franchise and created a film based on the popular Lego Ninjago toy line called, appropriately, The Lego Ninjago Movie. I must admit that after having enjoyed the first two films very much and finding them surprisingly funny and delightfu... Read More

In 1982, Ridley Scott (Alien) gave us a highly stylized movie called Blade Runner.  It was set in the future and starred Harrison Ford (Star Wars: Episode IV -A New Hope).  Thirty-five Years later, Director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario) gives us the sequel, Blade Runner 2049.  It continues the story of the ...

Millions of people everyday doing the same thing over and over again.  They leave their nice little homes in the suburbs, get on a train into Manhattan, go to work in some high rise building all day, get back on the train, and head home back to the suburbs.  Nothing much changes from one day to the next and nothing exciting ever really ha...

The year was 1973.  Equal Rights and Feminism were at the forefront of American People's minds.  Former Champion tennis player and male chauvinist Bobby Riggs (Steve Carrell: The Office) spouted off about how women shouldn't be playing tennis in the same league with men and challenged the top female players to a match to prove once and fo...

In 1986 Hasbro toys decided to make a television series based on one of their popular toys – My Little Pony.  The show lasted two seasons but merchandising continued to sell for some years after.  Then in 1992, we got another version called My Little Pony Tales that had 26 episodes.  Almost 20 years later My Little Pony: Friend...
