Mining is hard work and dangerous.   In fact, on average, over 1000 miners die each year.  When a cave in occurs, any survivors eventually die under the rock because companies find it hopeless and expensive to even try to rescue them.  Luckily, in 2010, that wasn't the fate for 33 Chilean miners, as the world watched and hoped f...

To some, Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender; X-Men: First Class) was brilliant.  To others, he was an over-inflated ego, and, to a select few, he was the closest to God they think they will ever get.  Whatever he was, there is no denying he was a visionary and most probably brilliant.   While there have been a few movies and books a...

James Bond is one of the most iconic and enduring characters in cinematic history.  Fans of Albert Broccoli's creation anticipate a new release and are anxious to own each film in the catalog when they become available for home theater.  The twenty-fourth film in the franchise hits stores today, and it will,  no doubt, be as popular ...

After the end of the second World War, the world looked like a different place than it does today. Germany was no longer a whole country, it was divided into East and West. The United States and Russia were at the height of their spy game with agents on the ground in both countries trying to get the upper hand in case a nuclear war broke out. It is... Read More

Dubbed "Disney's Folly", Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs was predicted to be a major flop before its release on December 21, 1937.  Skeptics argued that nobody wanted to sit through a feature length animated movie but Walt Disney spent two years making the film and betting the naysayers were wrong.  As it turn...

I hate politics.  It's all a big smoke screen with lies, manipulation and "perceptions".   In a 2005 documentary called "Our Brand Is Crisis", they explore these themes while showing the devastating results of a country in unrest with an out of touch ruler.   In the feature film of th... Read More

For some, Mount Everest is the pinnacle (pun intended) of extreme outdoorsmanship.  The highest peak in the world, hundreds of people gather at its base each year in an attempt to reach the top, over 29,000 feet above sea level.   Along the way, any number of things can go wrong resulting in fatalities.  The 2015 movie, Everest,...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  01/19/2016 9:53 AM EST
Being a teenager, especially a girl, is no easy task.  Hormones and emotions run high and everything in your life is exaggerated.  Being a fifteen-year-old girl in 1976 during a time of free expression, and drugs and alcohol readily available, makes that task even more challenging.  Add into that scenario your first sexual encounter,...

Retirement - the goal of most working class citizens of the world. But once the excitement and novelty of having your life to yourself 24 hours a day is over, what do you do? What would society let you do? Are you still relevant in today's workforce? Can today's generation learn from  the elderly? These questions, and more, are th... Read More
