As soon as women entered the workforce in large quantities during WWII, there were issues.  In the 1980s and '90s, sexual harassment of females in the workplace was common and rarely discussed, especially in the world of entertainment.   Victims were afraid to come forward fearing retribution or termination.  Twenty-five plus years l...

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…42 years to be exact, a film hit theaters and forever changed the way we view science fiction movies.  Star Wars: A New Hope told the classic story of rebels warring against a powerful regime but offers the story with an intergalactic twist.  It made instant stars of Carrie Fischer (The Bl...

In 1981 publishing company Houghton Mifflin published a fantasy children's picture book by Chris Van Allsburg called Jumanji.  The book depicted jungle animals and elements coming to life as the game is played.  Then in 1995, Tristar Pictures made Jumanji into a feature film starring Robin Williams (Mrs. Doubtfire).  A second boo...

When does a film stop being entertainment and start becoming political manipulation? That's the question running around in my head after seeing Clint Eastwood's new film Richard Jewell. There's no doubt that Mr. Eastwood is a skilled Director. There is a vast library of fine films to prove it. However, this film feels quickly made, rushed to market... Read More

Why do human beings seem so fascinated by the sky and the stars?  Long before the Wright Brothers took to the air in the early 1900s, Other experiments with flight in the form of hot air balloons.  Many were experimenters or thrill-seekers but a few were scientists working to advance our understanding of what lays above us.  One such...

Once again it is Oscar bait season and the plethora of well made, terrifically acted feature films is ramping up into high gear.  The (mostly) dramas are aesthetically pleasing, generally, thought-provoking and not only require the audience to think but to have them leave the theater feeling a range of emotions.  In her feature film direc...

Who doesn't love a good whodunnit?  Agatha Christie and her mystery novels were popular for years.  Angela Lansbury got a second wind in her career when she played Jessica Fletcher on the popular television series Murder She Wrote, which lasted 12 seasons.  Murder on the Orient Express is a classic and even Saturday Morning carto...

Like it or not, Disney is the undisputed king of feature-length animated movies.  From the classics – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella- and the 1990's revitalization– The Little Mermaid and Aladdin - to today's modern movies – Moana and Ralph Breaks the Internet- Disney knows how to make a wonderful chil...

The French seem to have a knack for creating long-standing endurance races.  Since 1903 the 21 day Tour de France has brought cycling teams from all over the world to compete and since 1923 the 24 hours of Le Mans has had car manufacturers and drivers vying for a win. In 1964 Ford motor company threw its hat into the ring trying to increase it... Read More

The fall season… the nights get cooler, the leaves change color, retail stores start gearing up for the holiday shopping frenzy and movie theaters start getting a variety of films to play.  Of course, there are the Oscar-worthy set plus the action films intent on getting teenage boys out of the house and finally the family friend v...
