"True love knows no bounds." It's a statement we hear often in the face of adversity when two people are supposedly "meant to be together".  They face insurmountable odds that have to be conquered in order to live "happily ever after". Usually, these type of stories are the relegated to the world of fantasy but ev... Read More

Why would anyone come up with the idea to take popular characters made out of animated Legos and make it into a movie?  Who would want to go see it? Well, in 2014, those questions were answered when Warner Bros created The Lego Movie. The film was a smashing success, so two and a half years later they are back with The Lego Batman Mo...

Televisions shows don't always know when their run will end, so often seasons end with the all too familiar cliffhanger that sadly never gets resolved.  Occasionally, they find out before the finale is written so they can tie the series up in a nice little bow and not leave fans hanging.  Rarely does a show know it will end before the fir...

Keanu Reeves has made a name for himself as an action movie star with films such as Speed, The Matrix series, and 2014's John Wick.  It is well known that he trains hard for these roles learning martial arts as well as practicing with knives and guns. His diligence seemed to have paid off when he first took the role as... Read More

If you are anything like me, you loved 1999's The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser (School Ties; Gods and Monsters) and Rachel Weisz (The Bourne Legacy).  It was fun, well done and included some interesting ideas about history.  When I heard it was being "reimagined" starring Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible) and Russell C...

Disney is always trying to reinvent itself; from new attractions at the theme parks to merchandising to their latest animated successes like Frozen and Moana.  The same can be said for one of their newest ventures, turning their animated movies into live action films.  First, there was Maleficent then Ci...

You know that if Oprah Winfrey (The Color Purple) and her production company are going to be involved in a film that it is going to be a drama and generally based on either a book or real life events.  In this case, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is both. Winfrey rarely gets involved in a project unless it has something to say and t... Read More

Judge Dredd made his debut in British comic books as early as the late 1970's as a law enforcement officer in Mega City One, a dystopian society set sometime in the future. His authority includes arresting, convicting, sentencing and, if necessary, executing criminals in an effort to keep the peace. Then in 1995 Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) broug... Read More

There have been numerous books and movies about Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill over the years and in a 2002 poll, he was named the greatest Briton of all time.  He led the United Kingdom through some tumultuous times and was always seen as a great statesman.  However, behind the scenes, he wasn't necessarily as eloquent sometim...
