Meeting the girlfriend's family for the first time can be nerve-wracking, especially when she is white and they haven't been told that you are an African-American male.  Let's face it, for all the talk, racism still exists in this country. That was the dilemma for Chris Washington (Daniel Kaluuya; Sicario).  He was going to the home ...

Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner… It was with these words the world was introduced to the trailer for the Michael Mann (Public Enemies) film that would become a classic.

When most people think of the name Arnold Schwarzenegger, they think of explosions, hardcore action, and a high body count. However, with the actor, turned governor turned actor again, getting up there in age, the type of roles that Schwarzenegger is accepting are tending to be more dramatic. A  prime example of this is his latest film, A... Read More

Rob Zombie is synonymous with all things horror. Between his films, music, name and even his personal style, there doesn't seem to be a side of him that doesn't delve into the macabre.  Zombie has released eight films, all horror, and the latest of these releases is 31.This movie was a bit of a change for Zombie as it actually used cro...

Starting in the 1990s with the human genome project and the cloning of Dolly the sheep, people have feared scientists might tinker too much with human DNA.

After the success of Disney's 1999 animated hit film Tarzan, it was only a matter of time before another live action film was made about the "King of The Jungle".
