The human race, for the most part, seems to be enamored with the idea of death.  We fixate on what comes next.  Is there an afterlife?  What happens to our soul when our body is gone? Is there such a thing as reincarnation?  Hispanic cultures even honor their dead on El Dia de los  Muertos.  For the filmmaker, Shawn Sn... Read More

Carol Danvers first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1968  as a United States Air Force pilot (rather forward thinking of them, don't you think?).  In 1977 she became Ms.Marvel when an explosion causes her DNA to fuse with Kree Warrior Mar-Vell, giving her superhuman powers. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years,... Read More
