In the mid-1980s Comedians Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon started doing a stand-up routine in which they played two, bodacious dudes called Bill & Ted. The stand-up was such a hit that they went on to create a film in 1989 entitled Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, which both kids, teenagers, and teachers alike got behind.The movie immediate...

The more things change…the more they stay the same.  There was a time in the United States when African Americans were seen as property instead of human beings.  A time when the northern states and the southern ones disagreed about slave ownership which ultimately led to war.  There are some who still hold these beliefs today,...

"Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot.

It's hard to believe it has only been seven years since we were introduced to Elsa (Idina Menzel; Rent), Anna (Kristen Bell; The Good Place), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff; Hamilton: An American Musical), and Olaf (Josh Gad; Beauty and the Beast) in Disney's blockbuster, animated film, Frozen.  In a short time, the franchise has grown to epic propo...

When one hears the name Roald Dahl, one generally thinks of the collection of children's stories he wrote.  Dahl usually made the protagonists children with adults portrayed as villains.  However, there always seemed to be one adult who was a kind soul that helped the children defeat their enemies.Since Dahl was such a descriptive wr...

Paramount Presents: The Haunting   The Haunting Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/21/2020 9:15 AM EDT
While Shirley Jackson (The Lottery) may have lacked quantity in her writing, she certainly made up for it in quality.  Regarded as a prolific author, she created images that terrified her readers while conversely drawing them into her made-up worlds.  In 1959 Viking published Jackson's novel, The Haunting of Hill House, which is consi...

Back in the early 2000s, AMC (originally American Movie Classics) aired mostly…you guessed it, old movies.

If you were a teenager in the 1980's you should definitely remember what movie this line is from…" Are you telling me you built a time machine…out of a DeLorean?"  Amazingly, it was thirty-five years ago when the first Back to the Future movie screeched into theaters at 88 miles per hour.  Four years later the ...
