Imagine all the people… had no idea who The Beatles – John, Paul, George, and Ringo- were. What if they never existed? Imagine if you were the only person on Earth who remembered them and their incredible catalog of music.   What if you could publish Hey, Jude, Yesterday, Penny Lane, etc. under your own name?  You would certa...

There are numerous late night talks shows out there and each one vies for viewers in the "ratings" wars.  We see an engaging and enthusiastic host talking to the audience, home viewers and guests all in an effort to try to win our loyalty.  However, we usually don't know what goes on behind the scenes and how hard a team of writ...

So many young people have dreams and aspirations of becoming stars.  Some of them hope to be actors, some rappers and some country music singers.  Rose-Lynn (Jessie Buckley; Beast) is one of the latter.  She is an anomaly living in her small town in Scotland dreaming of moving to Nashville to make it big.  Her chances are probab...

The story of Billy the Kid is legendary.  He was notorious for gambling cattle rustling and murder.  He is the subject of numerous books and movies - some are pretty factual while others are mostly fictitious with a few details thrown in for accuracy.  The latest in a long line of films called The Kid falls into the latter category.&...

"You've got a friend in me"… since 1995 those words have been synonymous with the Disney animated movie Toy Story and Woody (Tom Hanks; Cast Away) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen; Home Improvement).  Over the next fifteen years, we were treated to two more films in the franchise that followed the adventures of Andy's toys as the...

Do you believe aliens live amongst us here on earth,…hiding in plain sight?  Are you one of those individuals who is fascinated by conspiracy theories?

It all began eleven years earlier on September 11, 2001, with the attack on United States soil that saw the deaths of over 3,000 people.  Then five weeks later Muammar Gaddafi, the deposed leader of Libya, was captured and killed near Sirte, which leads to years of unrest in the Arab state.  Warring rebel groups fought for control of the ...

It's the end of an era.  As Twentieth Century Fox closes out its final slate, they also close out one of their very successful franchises with this week's Dark Phoenix. Nineteen years ago in July 2000 X-Men came to movie theaters bringing yet another set of comic books to life on the big screen.  Nine movies later (not including the two D... Read More

In 1997, two years after the monetarily successful but critically panned Batman Returns, Director Joel Schumacher (The Phantom of the Opera) helmed the fourth installment of the popular franchise, Batman & Robin.  Once again, the lead was replaced and George Clooney (Michael Clayton) stepped into the role previously held by Michael Keaton ...
