Since the Late 1980s Batman has gone through a number of iterations and in 2005 Director Christopher Nolan (Inception) got a crack at telling the story.  His version, Batman Begins, was different from past attempts and was so well received that he was given the opportunity to continue his tale two more times, once in 2008 and again in 2012.&nb...

American Made is based on the true story of Barry Seal (Tom Cruise; Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation).  It's a fascinating tale of drugs, greed, guns and wealth that involves the governments of a number of countries including the United States.  It chronicles Barry's life as he "worked the system" while getting involved ...

If you look up the word inception in the dictionary, you will find this meaning - an act, process, or instance of beginning: commencement. However, for director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Night) it means something slightly different.  In 2010, he took that concept and applied it to one's subconscious mind and people's drea...

It was a sequel seven years in the making and at the time it had been the most expensive film made to date.  The visual effects surpassed everyone's expectations and when it was released on July 3, 1991, it became an instant commercial and critical success.  It utilized the latest CGI technology offering audiences something they had rarel...

Back in 2015, director Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class) and famed comic book writer Mark Millar unloaded a new kind of comic book film unto the world entitled Kingsman: The Secret Service.

There is a plethora of movies about World War II, Wonder Woman, Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List, The Pianist, Pearl Harbor- just to name a few.  We are obsessed with the superheroes, the love story, the underdog, and the victims of that time period.

Queen Victoria (Judi Dench; Skyfall) was known for being cantankerous and mean especially as she aged so it's interesting that later in her life she found an unlikely friendship in a poor young man from India.  Their relationship became a thorn in the side of the British Empire and her household staff but she obviously didn't care and as the Q...
