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...

Some would say Phineas T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman; Logan) was a dreamer. Others would say he was a businessman. Yet, some would argue he was both and some would say he scammed people.  The truth is probably a little of each but there is no denying he was one of the greatest showmen on Earth.  He gained wealth entertaining people but not...

It has been twenty-two years since the original Jumanji film starring Robin Williams graced the silver screen. A lot has changed in that time - grunge music is out, pop music is in, mobile phones are no longer a luxury, but a necessity and board games are no longer the preferred form of entertainment. Video games have taken over and to that end, Co... Read More

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. Kingman was a slick, glossy film that wore it's R rated badge proudly.  It was filled with tongue in cheek jokes, a "bondesque... Read More

"Boston Strong" - the phrase has come to symbolize a feeling of hope and community surrounding a horrible tragedy and a horrific act of terrorism on American soil. The 2013 event shone a spotlight on the City of Boston and the Boston Athletic Association and has sparked two major motion pictures. It also prompted director Jon Dunham (Spir... Read More

In April of 2013, the landscape of Boston and the marathon were changed forever. A simple act of terrorism rocked the city and the Boston Athletic Association to its very core and kept the world waiting with bated breath as the drama unfolded.

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. We immerse ourselves in the romanticization of the drama and stories that are derived fro... Read More

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...

There are many people who believe there are aliens out there in the universe and some who think they live amongst us.  There are also people who believe there is a secret government agency covering up the existence of aliens.  Nineteen ninety-seven's comedy and subsequent sequels take a humorous look at the idea that both aliens and a...
