The Equalizer began as a television series on CBS back in the late 1980's and starred Edward Woodward (The Wicker Man). It ran for four seasons and was nominated for numerous awards before being canceled.  In 2014, Denzel Washington (Training Day) brought the character back to life in a feature film that garnered a following among fans and som...

If you search for The Quick and the Dead on the popular pseudo encyclopedia website Wikipedia you will come up with four unique and different entries that span about 60 years.  The first on the list is a Nazi-occupied Europe war film, the second a documentary about racing,  The third a television movie and the last is 1995's Sam Raimi (Sp...

Man's best friend.  They are faithful and true and generally loving.  But what happens when man turns against them? Wes Anderson's (Fantastic Mr. Fox) stop-motion animation film Isle of Dogs offers a heartbreaking tale (or tail as the case may be) that makes you look at dogs in a way that you may have seen them seen them before but that i...

Remember those books where the ending you got depended on which plot you chose?  Imagine being able to do the same thing with a television show.  HBO took that concept and while they didn't completely transfer it, they certainly updated it to incorporate today's technology.  Imagine an app for your phone that allows you to choose dif...

The month was July, the year 1969.  In the middle of the month, two events would occur within days of each other that would not only have significance for the Kennedy family but would also captivate millions of Americans.  The second event would happen two days after the first when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon fulfilling a promise th...

For the last ten years, Marvel Studios has been entertaining us with tales of superheroes and Gods.  In the first half of 2018 alone we were treated to blockbusters The Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War and as we hit the halfway point of the year they are once again delighting us with their next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Ant...

A blackout can be described as a temporary loss of consciousness and can be devastating for the individual who suffers from it.  Imagine losing track of time and not knowing what you may or may not have done during that time or if what you think may have happened actually is the truth.  Author George Harrar takes this idea and twists it i...

Why is it movies about heists always make it seem so easy as if anyone could rob a bank or armored car?  It promotes a false sense of hope as well thought out plans seem to go off without a hitch (well not always but you know what I mean).  It's not surprising then that four College kids decided, planned and executed a heist to steal ...

Twenty-five years ago we were taken to an Island and transported back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the earth.  Jurassic Park was an immediate box office hit which spawned two sequels.  In 2015 the series got a reboot when Jurassic World came to theaters and once again was a big hit.  Naturally the success of the film made it impo...

When one thinks of iconic actor Robert De Niro one instantly thinks of a dramatic leading man in films like Taxi Driver or Raging Bull.  One doesn't immediately gravitate towards raunchy comedies in the vain of Neighbors or Animal House.  However, that is exactly what we get when this versatile actor shows us another side of himself as Di...
