Luc Bessson (La Femme Nikita) has been writing and making films since the early 1980's but in 1990 he became more of a household name with the release of Leon: The Professional and The Fifth Element.  Highly stylized action films, they captured the imagination like none others had before.  With his latest film, Valerian and the City o...

The year was 1940 and World War two was raging all throughout Europe.  The United States had yet to become involved but England was enmeshed in the fighting.  Every night there were air raids, bombs destroying cities and civilians getting killed.  Men were being called upon to enter the military to help fight and women were entering ...

We all feel pressure from our parents… get a good education, get a good job, get married, have a family, etc.  But for some, that pressure becomes even greater when religious beliefs are thrown into the mix.  For Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani; Silicon Valley), that is exactly the life he leads.  Unfortunately, that isn't th...

Robin Williams (Good Morning Vietnam) was a comedic genius who left us all too soon.  He was truly one of a kind.  He could famously go off on a tangent and make almost anything funny.  You couldn't help but smile and laugh when you saw his standup routines and he made a name for himself in major motion pictures even winning an Oscar...

Spider-Man made his debut in Marvel comics 55 years ago as a sidekick to the protagonist. He was a lonely teen who, like most kids his age, suffered anxiety and inadequacy.  He became so popular there have been a number of comic books, merchandise, movies and television shows focused solely on him.  In more recent years, we have had the m...

Let's face it… Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures hit gold back in 2010 when the first Despicable Me movie made its way into theaters.  With great characters, funny lines and a solid story, it delighted audiences, especially the adorable little yellow Minions.  Due to its success, it was followed in 2013 by...

They say money is the root of all evil.  Some people will do anything to get it while some of those who have it will do anything to keep it (or get more).  It can certainly make life easier in some ways but harder in others and it is the rare individual who is left untouched by its appeal. Writer Josep Ciutat and Director Martin Rosete ex... Read More

In 1968, a film debuted about a planet where human-like apes ruled and humans were mute prisoners.  The foreign concept captured the imaginations of millions of people and became a popular series spawning 4 more movies through 1973.  Then, in 1974, a television series aired but only lasted for one season of 13 episodes and for a time the ...

Meeting your girlfriend's father is always a nerve-wracking experience, especially when said father is overbearing and you happen to be a rather meek and timid guy.  From the moment you lock eyes you know somewhere deep down inside the evening isn't going to go well and by the end of the evening, you realize you were right. Thankfully,... Read More

For some reason, people worldwide seem to be fascinated by the idea of the possibility of life on other planets.  We are always searching for proof of organisms in space to prove we are not alone and that other planets can sustain life.  However, many theorize that if we did find aliens they may not be so welcoming and friendly as we hope...
