When one thinks of compelling television, one undoubtedly thinks of FX's The Americans.  With the recent start of the sixth and final season, we are once again drawn into the dramatic world of international espionage disguised as normal suburban family life… Or is it the other way around?  As we brokenheartedly await ...

Prom night.  It's a magical time for teenagers all over the country.  They party, dance, do things they shouldn't be doing and plan for a special night they will never forget.  For some that includes losing their virginity.  It's a "rite of passage" many partake in before they graduate from high school and head off to ...

The 1970's were a wild time.  Drugs, partying, and wild sex… it was rampant and everywhere.  And Helen (Glenn Close; Damages) was a part of it all.  She had multiple partners and wasn't quite sure which one of them could have fathered her twin boys, Kyle (Owen Wilson; Wedding Crashers) and Peter (Ed Helms;&nb...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  03/30/2018 11:53 AM EDT
There have been some great movies released in the last 25 years and several of them include a baseball theme.  As "America's pastime" it is the quintessential vehicle with which to tell any number of stories including a coming of age tale set during the 1960's.  On the surface, The Sandlot seems to be merely about some p...

(Maureen Buccellato)  03/23/2018 2:52 PM EDT
In 1995, Robin Williams starred in Jumanji, bringing us a funny, yet touching, film about a boy who gets trapped inside an old board game.

To call ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi' controversial is a monumental understatement. Opening to rave reviews and unbridled anticipation, the cultural juggernaut slammed into a brick wall of fan outrage and disappointment. Perhaps no other film in the history of cinema (save the Star Wars prequels) has split the fanbase along the lin... Read More
