The Star Wars Saga was meant to be a series of nine films chronicling the rebel alliance as they try to defeat the Empire.   Since 1977, we have been watching as Luke, Leia and Han have been fighting evil and saving the day (or at least trying to).  In 2016, we got even more than we expected when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story filled i...

We've all been there.  The summer of our teenage years that has a profound impact on the rest of our lives.  The time that we have that great epiphany that takes us one step closer to the adult we are destined to become.  Occasionally a wise and learned adult helps us navigate this transition and generally, there is some challenge we...

RBG may sound like a company name or an abbreviation for a drug.  However, it is, in fact, the initials for one of the most influential women in the United States. Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsberg is pretty much a household name in this country who made a name for herself as a champion of gender equality issues. ... Read More

In 1902, the world was introduced to an adorable yet mischievous rabbit named Peter.  British author Beatrix Potter wrote six books over ten years showcasing the anthropomorphic bunny, his family, and friends. Over the next one hundred years the Peter Rabbit books and merchandising have earned over $150 million worldwide and this year Columbia... Read More

Imagine you have the power to stop a terrorist attack before it ever happened. You are an Army pilot in a simulator and every eight minutes you end up looping back onto a commuter train outside Chicago that blew up earlier in the morning.  Your job is to find the bomb and the bomber to stop an even larger bomb from exploding in the City limits...

In 1975 we became terrified of the water when Steven Spielberg's (E.T.: The Extraterrestrial) Jaws hit movie theaters.  Let's face it… who can forget that huge mouth with all those teeth coming out of the water as the now iconic John Williams' score played in the background.  Then in 1999 we were once again reminded why it wasn't s...

National Lampoon has had a long tradition of comedic films beginning with 1978's Animal House.  Many of these movies have gone on to earn cult status and have given us some the best comedy scenes in movie history.  How can forget tying grandma to the roof of the car after she passed away in Vacation or the numerous moments that showcased ...

Los Angeles - The City of Angels..or is it?  Statistics show it has one of the highest number of bank robberies in the country.  With an average of one per hour, it seems like a haven for those looking to make a lot of cash fast.  It is only right then that a movie about a bunch of bank robbers would be set there.  Den of Thieve...

It was called the Wild, Wild West for a reason.  There was lawlessness across the open plains and a feud brewed between the white people and the Indians.  The American troops tried their best to keep things orderly but it seemed to have little effect.  As Captain Joseph Blocker (Christian Bale; The Dark Knight) transports dying priso...

In 1958 British Author Michael Bond introduced us to the duffle coat wearing, marmalade-loving bear Paddington.  Then in 1975 BBC television broadcast a series about the beloved bear and in 2014 Warner Bros. gave us a live-action feature film.  Last year they followed that up with Paddington 2, which garnered both critical and audience ac...
