It's hard to imagine that it has been ten years since Twilight first graced the big screen.  In 2005 the vision of writer Stephenie Meyer was published and became a sensation not only amongst young adults but by adults as well.  Edward, Bella, and Jacob captivated people's imaginations and spawned three more books and a total of five movi...

If one were to compile a list of the greatest female singers of all time it would certainly include Aretha Franklin, Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, and Mariah Carey.  The list, of course, would be incomplete though without the addition of the incomparable Whitney Houston.  The daughter of Cissy Houston and cousin of singer Dionne Warwick...

Who didn't grow up with the beloved story of Peter Pan?  Can't you just remember of watching Wendy, John, and Michael as they learned to fly and followed Peter to Neverland?  And of course who could forget the lovely fairy, Tinkerbell who was so jealous of Wendy that she tried to sabotage Wendy every chance she could.  It was a wonde...

Who can forget those awkward teenage years when everything seemed catastrophic including one little pimple that may be here today, gone tomorrow?  Or begging your parents to buy you the latest fashion, game, etc and screaming at them and pouting when they refused?  And of course, the most dreaded place on earth in any teenager's live&...

An actress emerges from her shell…a new director proves his worth…a movie that entices all of the senses and emotions in one's body… A Star is Born and the fourth iteration of the movie may be the best one to date. The first film from 1937 starred Janet Gaynor (Sunrise) and Fredric March (The Best Years of Our Lives) and tells ... Read More
