Since the Late 1980s Batman has gone through a number of iterations and in 2005 Director Christopher Nolan (Inception) got a crack at telling the story.  His version, Batman Begins, was different from past attempts and was so well received that he was given the opportunity to continue his tale two more times, once in 2008 and again in 2012.&nb...

American Made is based on the true story of Barry Seal (Tom Cruise; Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation).  It's a fascinating tale of drugs, greed, guns and wealth that involves the governments of a number of countries including the United States.  It chronicles Barry's life as he "worked the system" while getting involved ...

If you look up the word inception in the dictionary, you will find this meaning - an act, process, or instance of beginning: commencement. However, for director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Night) it means something slightly different.  In 2010, he took that concept and applied it to one's subconscious mind and people's drea...

It was a sequel seven years in the making and at the time it had been the most expensive film made to date.  The visual effects surpassed everyone's expectations and when it was released on July 3, 1991, it became an instant commercial and critical success.  It utilized the latest CGI technology offering audiences something they had rarel...

Five years ago, the world was introduced to the Barden Bellas, a college acapella group who had the goal of regaining past glory and winning a national title.  Three years later, we got the sequel when the Bellas set loftier dreams to include an international stage.  Now we have the last installment in the trilogy, as Pitch Perfect 3...

Some would say Phineas T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman; Logan) was a dreamer. Others would say he was a businessman. Yet, some would argue he was both and some would say he scammed people.  The truth is probably a little of each but there is no denying he was one of the greatest showmen on Earth.  He gained wealth entertaining people but not...

"Boston Strong" - the phrase has come to symbolize a feeling of hope and community surrounding a horrible tragedy and a horrific act of terrorism on American soil. The 2013 event shone a spotlight on the City of Boston and the Boston Athletic Association and has sparked two major motion pictures. It also prompted director Jon Dunham (Spir... Read More

In April of 2013, the landscape of Boston and the marathon were changed forever. A simple act of terrorism rocked the city and the Boston Athletic Association to its very core and kept the world waiting with bated breath as the drama unfolded. On that day at 2:49 pm, two homemade bombs exploded near the finish line of the race killing three people,... Read More

Queen Victoria (Judi Dench; Skyfall) was known for being cantankerous and mean especially as she aged so it's interesting that later in her life she found an unlikely friendship in a poor young man from India.  Their relationship became a thorn in the side of the British Empire and her household staff but she obviously didn't care and as the Q...

There are many people who believe there are aliens out there in the universe and some who think they live amongst us.  There are also people who believe there is a secret government agency covering up the existence of aliens.  Nineteen ninety-seven's comedy and subsequent sequels take a humorous look at the idea that both aliens and a...
