Ben Affleck can be hit or miss as an actor, director, and writer. Argo was masterfully shot and Gone Baby, Gone and The Town were beautifully written and all three engaged audiences and left us feeling emotionally spent.  Even his acting talents don't go to waste in The Accountant, so it's only natural t...

Fifteen years ago, a little singing competition show aired on television and captivated our hearts.  Each year, we would watch intently as hopeful young adults put themselves and their vocal talents on display on a show called American Idol.  Other shows soon followed.  Some, such as The Voice, are still on the air and show...

HBO was one of the forerunners in cable television to start their own programming.  With shows like Game of Thrones, Westword, The Sopranos, VEEP, Silicon Valley, and True Blood, HBO has shown foresight into what captivates viewers and they have also shown that they are not afraid to spend money on their productions, which make the s...

This week, Warner Brothers released to Bluray & DVD "Collateral Beauty", which was released in theaters back in December of 2016. This picture is headed by Will Smith, who recently seems to step away from his big summer blockbusters here and there in the search of that elusive Best Actor Oscar. The sad part is, he's deserved it ma... Read More

Disney's latest masterpiece, Beauty and the Beast, is a live-action adaptation based on the 1991 animated classic.  Some fans of the original (including original cast members that might have been quoted in the press) have questioned the need for or purpose of "recreating" such a timeless favorite.  Had the studio decided to ...

Ever since he first appeared in movie theaters back in 1933, we have had a fascination with one humongous ape.  King Kong became a classic and sparked not only our imaginations but spawned remakes and reincarnations of the huge beast.  In 2005, Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) brought his spin to the series in a three-hour...

In the 1960s, the United States was introduced to Camelot. Camelot – a time of romance and prosperity. The time in which there was contentment throughout the kingdom and people were happy. Well, we, as Americans, didn't have King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, or The Knights of the Round Table; we had the White House, the Oval Office, and the K... Read More

There was a time when horror movies meant scary monsters who preyed on teenagers and created massive amounts of carnage wherever they went.  More recently, though, a lot of these type of horror movies have been replaced with a more suspenseful, psychological thriller-like motif of storytelling that offers a few scares but also plays tricks on ...

Disney had a strong year movie-wise in 2016.  From Zootopia to the sequel Finding Dory and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to Captain America: Civil War, they had a full slate of quality movies, both animated and live action. Their year culminated in their strongest animated feature, Moana. From a great story to catchy music to amazing animation,... Read More

Some people thought Howard Hughes was a genius, others would call him eccentric.  Some would say he was eclectic or reclusive and others would simply state he was crazy.  His OCD tendencies were as famous as his deals and mountains of money, not to mention the Hollywood starlets who often accompanied him.  He made money in everything...
