It's rare that one gets to watch a movie about self-discovery but Lionsgate and A24 have released a movie that when you watch it, provides a profound sense of oneself and understanding of what it takes to mold a person from childhood to adulthood.   Director Barry Jenkins (Medicine for Melancholy) has taken a story and transforme...

Jordan Peele is known for being a comedian.  Along with his partner Keegan Michael Key (Why Him?), they have starred in their own sketch comedy show and last year's successful movie, Keanu.  So it's a little surprising to see he has written and directed a horror film called Get Out.  Based on his background it doesn...

Dirty Dancing can't possibly be 30 years old!!  It came out the summer before my junior year of high school and I'm not that old… am I (Don't answer that question)?  When I saw the Blu-ray come across my desk, I was immediately thrown back to that more innocent time in my life and reminisced about sitting in the movie theater watch...

Monday, February 20th A&E will kick off the first episode of the Final season of Bates Motel in fantastic fashion.

A conscientious objector is defined as someone who, for reasons of conscience, objects to serving in the armed forces.  Back in the 1940's, Desmond Doss was labelled as such even though he actually enlisted in the military.  His refusal to even hold a gun, let alone shoot one, earned him the designation and a court martial hearing.&nb...
