While the concept and development of the television set had been around since the early 1900s, it was considered a luxury item that didn't become a staple in homes everywhere until sometime in the late 1950's – early 1960's.   As a way to compete with the convenience of watching shows at home, Paramount Pictures engineers created VistaVi...

Back in 1977 George Lucas (American Graffiti) created a science fiction/outer space movie called Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.  It instantly became a classic, spawned one of the greatest franchises that is still around to this day, and made icons of the cast.  Between the fifth and sixth episodes of Star Wars, Lucas wrote another acti...

When Lara Croft: Tomb Raider became a major motion picture back in 2001, fans of the video game were eager to head to the theater to watch one of their favorite characters truly come to life.  Though panned by critics, the movie eventually made two hundred and seventy-five million dollars worldwide, almost doubling its production budget. ...

In the last thirty years, video games have become a multi-billion-dollar industry.  Of course, that means at some point, they would probably get the feature film treatment. For Tomb Raider, that became a reality in 2001 when a relatively unknown Angelina Jolie (Eternals) starred in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.  The highly anticipated action-a... Read More

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/26/2021 11:23 AM EDT
Carry on my wayward son, there'll be peace when you are done…so begins the song by Kansas that has become associated with the WB/CW television show, Supernatural.  Those lyrics perfectly reflect the idea and premise of the show that has entertained audiences for fifteen seasons.  After three hundred and twenty-seven episodes, t...

When J.J. Abrams (Star Wars Episode VIII: The Force Awakens) was sixteen years old, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial came out in movie theaters.  Looking at Abrams' career, it is hard to imagine he wasn't influenced by the Spielberg film.  Fast forward, almost thirty years, and Abrams wrote a script about a group of kids that accidental...

Riding high off of the success of Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Arnold Schwarzenegger teamed up once again with Director John McTiernan (Predator) to film a somewhat campy/cheesy movie called Last Action Hero.  Hoping to cash in on their previous success, Last Action Hero, written by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang) and David Arnott (The Adve...

In September of 1966, an action/spy fiction television show first aired on CBS.  Mission: Impossible aired for seven seasons (171 episodes) before going off the air and gave us an iconic line, "This message will self-destruct", that many still recognize today.  Fifteen years later, the show was revived but only lasted two years....
