Jack London spent almost a year in the Canadian Yukon during the Klondike Goldrush. While there he watched as dog sleds raced through the harsh terrain and weather in an effort to get their masters' to the gold before anyone else.  From this experience, he later wrote his most popular piece of fiction – a novel entitled The Call of the W...

It seems if there is a comic book/graphic novel out in the world, then at some point we will see a big-screen adaptation.  Marvel and DC Comics have had great success in the last ten years turning their superheroes and villains into major box office hits and now Valiant Comics is trying to duplicate the achievements of their counterparts with ...

Most people can recall a time in their young lives when someone older inspired them and/or believed in them.  Perhaps it was a teacher or a coach or a tutor, etc. who helped them see the potential they had even when they couldn't.  There have been numerous films over the years that have explored this theme and it is common to get at l...

Jane Austen published four novels in her short life and two more were published posthumously. The original four, Mansfield Park, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice and Emma, have not only been part of school curriculums the world over but have been adapted for both television and theatrical release.  The latter, Emma, even had a modern...

Nobel Prize nominee H.G. Wells was a writer who was ahead of his time.  Considered one of the "Fathers of Science Fiction" he wrote a novel published in 1897 called The Invisible Man. Almost forty years later, Universal Pictures released a feature film version of the novel starring Claude Raines as Dr. Jack Griffin/ The Invisible Man... Read More

Question: What do you call a film that's not funny, not deeply dramatic, and feels like a messed-up effort to re-make a good foreign film? I guess you call it "Downhill" and label it a ‘dramedy'. To sum up the "Downhill" situation; the filmmakers took what should have been a dream comedy pairing, in this case, the won... Read More

Almost 30 years ago Sega introduced a little blue creature to the gaming world called Sonic the Hedgehog.  He was super-fast, powerful, had enemies who wanted his power and he ran around various worlds collecting gold rings.  Since then there have been many iterations of the game making it one of the bestselling game franchises ever. &nbs...

In 1998, a young director named Guy Ritchie quickly made a name for himself with his feature film debut, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.  Two years later he once again garnered praise for his sophomore effort, Snatch. Over twenty years later Ritchie's unique style is evident in every film he writes/directs.  From his slow-motion act... Read More

It's hard to believe that it was 25 years ago when we were first introduced to Mike Lowrey (Will Smith; Men in Black) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence; Martin), two Miami police detectives that didn't generally do things "by the book".  Lowrey was the wild guy who drove a Porsche and lived in a spacious apartment overlooking the w...

(Alyn Darnay)  1/15/2020 12:15 PM EDT
When I was a boy, lad, young child, I was fascinated by an old black and white film I saw on TV called "Treasure Island". It exposed me to everything I knew nothing about, a dangerous sea voyage, nasty pirates, the hunt for treasure, and a resolution in doubt. I was so impressed by it that I still remember the impact it had on me to this ... Read More
