In 2015 Robert Eggers amazed audiences with his feature film directorial debut, The Witch.  Eggers' talent for storytelling and filmmaking belied his lack of experience in writing and helming a movie.  The result was remarkable as The Witch was nominated for 67 awards and won another 43 from organizations the world over.

Judy Garland (Renee Zellweger; Bridget Jones' Diary) seemed to have a charmed life.  As a teenager, she was signed to a film deal with MGM Studios.  She acted, danced and sang her way into America's heart playing Esther Smith in Meet Me in St. Louis, Susan Bradley in Harvey's Girls and Hannah Brown in Easter Parade.  Perhaps her most...

As soon as women entered the workforce in large quantities during WWII, there were issues.  In the 1980s and '90s, sexual harassment of females in the workplace was common and rarely discussed, especially in the world of entertainment.   Victims were afraid to come forward fearing retribution or termination.  Twenty-five plus years l...

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…42 years to be exact, a film hit theaters and forever changed the way we view science fiction movies.  Star Wars: A New Hope told the classic story of rebels warring against a powerful regime but offers the story with an intergalactic twist.  It made instant stars of Carrie Fischer (The Bl...

In 2011, Julian Fellows' Downton Abbey splashed onto the PBS scene. Maybe, at first, that doesn't sound all that exciting but the millions of fans of the series will tell you otherwise. We meet the Crawley family in 1912, the day after the sinking of the Titanic. We see the family through all the trials (literally) and tribulations of being... Read More
