There have been numerous television shows and movies that involve airplanes.  Some of them, including Wings and Airplane!, were humorous others held a more dramatic slant, i.e. Lost or Air Force One.  In most cases, these stories involved action taking place on an airplane or in an airport and in the case of the dramatic offers often...

Alita: Battle Angel is a film that was a long time in the making. James Cameron first read  Yukito Kishiro's Manga, Gunnm, twenty years ago. He wanted to make this into a film but due to his "Avatar" projects, "Alita" was put on the back burner. As time went on Cameron knew that he just couldn't fit the film in... Read More

Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) has made quite the name for himself as a filmmaker.  In 1992 his movie Reservoir Dogs became an instant hit after being screened at the Sundance Film Festival.  Then in 1994 Pulp Fiction won over audiences with its non-linear style of storytelling and its eclectic soundtrack.  Since then he has had nu...

In less than a year we have had two vastly different but very good musical biopics.  Bohemian Rhapsody gave us some vague insight into the world of the Band Queen and its lead singer, Freddy Mercury (Rami Malek; Mr. Robot) while Rocketman offered a grittier and more fantastical view of the legend that is Elton John (Taron Egerton; Kingsman: Th...

Family – to each of us the word means something different.  It could be your immediate family; siblings and parents; or it could be your extended family; grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins.  For some, it includes people you are not blood-related to – friends.  However you define the word, it is still a group of people o...

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  7/11/2019 12:10 PM EDT
It was 25 years ago that Disney brought us their animated version of the classic Shakespearean play, Hamlet. The Lion King offered wonderful animation, an original soundtrack created by Tim Rice and Elton John and a somewhat humorous look at the animal kingdom.  For ninety minutes, it entertained audiences and eventually grossed almost a billi...
