In 1997 Netflix was founded by Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings.  For many years they were successful "renting" DVDs that were shipped to homeowners who paid a monthly fee for the service.  By 2010 they had expanded to add a streaming service to their offerings, again, for a price.  As their streaming channel  grew they...

If you've ever thought about cheating on your spouse, you should take a deep breath, sit back and watch Paramount Pictures 1987 film, Fatal Attraction. Directed by Adrian Lyne (Flashdance), the suspenseful, violent thriller gave anyone who was in a relationship pause and made them think.  Watching what Alex Forrest (Glenn Close; Air Force One)...

The rhythm section is the heart of any band.  The drums are the heartbeat that keeps the tempo for the rest of the instruments.  It is the same with the human body.  The heartbeat can be very fast when a person is angry or agitated or slow and smooth when feeling a sense of calm and serenity. For a trained gunman, the goal is to achi... Read More

In 1953 Elvis Aron Presley (Jailhouse Rock) walked into a recording studio and cut two songs as a birthday gift for his mother. By 1956 he had a recording contract and was touring all over the country to the screams of adoring teenage girls.  His boyish good looks mixed with his "rockabilly" sound made him unique.  His outrageou...

(Alyn Darnay)  4/21/2020 10:11 AM EDT
At long last director Guy Richie is back in the territory he knows best - the harsh, talky, violent, clever, funny, sexy, entertaining, and ever ‘British Cool' of Cockney London's underworld. It's a post-modern English pulp fiction gem of a film, presented in a way that only a master of the sub-genre can bring it to the screen; an... Read More

Ever since 2011's Bridesmaids came to theaters a new "sub-genre" has consistently made its way to the big screen.  These female based, raunchy, friendship, women's empowerment movies have been popping up with great casts and usually some funny and memorable moments. In 2017, Girls Trip brought together four talented women and... Read More

Growing up I spent Saturday nights in front of my television watching two hours of shows.  The double whammy of The Love Boat and Fantasy Island were too enticing to give up.  The promise of romance on the high seas followed by having one's wildest dreams come true - for a price – was a tempting duo.  Because it was a little &q...
