In 1962, American Writer Madeleine L'Engle published the novel, A Wrinkle in Time. While it won critical acclaim, it was controversial in that it was a Science Fiction novel with a young, female protagonist. In 2003, Disney adapted the story for a television movie and this month they once again have re-envisioned it as a feature film. ... Read More

Teenage girls can be a handful.  Considering I used to be one and have two of my own now, I can attest to this statement.  Emotions run high and physical bodily changes make things awkward and downright hostile sometimes.  Teenagers in general (boys and girls) want more independence and challenge their parents constantly while naviga...

For the last ten years, Marvel Studios has brought some of our favorite superheroes to life. From Ironman to Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk to Captain America, they have peaked our imagination.   They even gave us more comical characters like Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool.  In 2011, Marvel introduced audience...

There is no pain worse in the world than losing a child. As a parent, you feel helpless and often times lost.  That pain is even worse when the circumstances behind that loss are suspect or due to criminal activity. For Mildred (Frances McDormand; Fargo), that pain is lived over and over again as she deals with her daughter's horrific... Read More

Agatha Christie was a prolific novelist with 66 books and numerous short stories to her credit.  She wrote in great detail about murder mysteries and offered fans beloved characters like Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, the latter being a Belgian who was the "greatest detective alive" (Sherlock Holmes fans might disagree).  He ha...

Disney has always been known for offering viewers lovable characters, memorable songs and scenes that, good or bad, become etched in our minds forever.  Often times they do this by using animals as their main characters to tell a story.  When Lady and the Tramp debuted in 1955, it gave us all of that and more.  The characte...

The Mexican culture is steeped in rich tradition and ceremony and offers its people a sense of community and belonging.  The music, food and holidays are unique and distinctive and give the country its long history.  Therefore, it is no surprise that Disney and Pixar teamed up to create a magical animated tale encompassing these factors. ...

Winston Churchill was a magnificent orator.  He would move people to action simply with his words.  Many also consider him to be one of the greatest Brits of all time. He led England through Hitler and the volatile times of World War II.  He was also known for drinking too much and being more than a bit eccentric and he could be mean... Read More

There is nothing wrong with a little harmless, competitive fun is there?  What if it includes some sibling rivalry?  What if it all goes awry?  Game Night, the new film from Directors John Francis Daley (Vacation) and Jonathan Goldstein (Vacation), answers these questions in a mildly hilarious way.  Starring Jason Bate...

Homelessness in the United States has reached staggering proportions and shattered our normal perception of what a homeless person looks like.  So often we automatically think of the bum on the street laying on a cardboard bed, the woman dressed in layers pushing around a shopping cart of old bags or blankets or the person at the street corner...
