In 1998, a young director named Guy Ritchie quickly made a name for himself with his feature film debut, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.  Two years later he once again garnered praise for his sophomore effort, Snatch. Over twenty years later Ritchie's unique style is evident in every film he writes/directs.  From his slow-motion act... Read More

It's hard to believe that it was 25 years ago when we were first introduced to Mike Lowrey (Will Smith; Men in Black) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence; Martin), two Miami police detectives that didn't generally do things "by the book".  Lowrey was the wild guy who drove a Porsche and lived in a spacious apartment overlooking the w...

When I was a boy, lad, young child, I was fascinated by an old black and white film I saw on TV called "Treasure Island". It exposed me to everything I knew nothing about, a dangerous sea voyage, nasty pirates, the hunt for treasure, and a resolution in doubt. I was so impressed by it that I still remember the impact it had on me to this ... Read More

In June of 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated setting off the First World War.  One of the biggest and bloodiest wars ever, it saw the world divided into two sides with fighting occurring through much of Europe. As the war raged on military and civilian casualties numbered in the millions.  Director Sam Mendes (Skyfall) penne... Read More

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 1981 publishing company Houghton Mifflin published a fantasy children's picture book by Chris Van Allsburg called Jumanji.  The book depicted jungle animals and elements coming to life as the game is played.  Then in 1995, Tristar Pictures made Jumanji into a feature film starring Robin Williams (Mrs. Doubtfire).  A second boo...

When does a film stop being entertainment and start becoming political manipulation? That's the question running around in my head after seeing Clint Eastwood's new film Richard Jewell. There's no doubt that Mr. Eastwood is a skilled Director. There is a vast library of fine films to prove it. However, this film feels quickly made, rushed to market... Read More

Why do human beings seem so fascinated by the sky and the stars?  Long before the Wright Brothers took to the air in the early 1900s, Other experiments with flight in the form of hot air balloons.  Many were experimenters or thrill-seekers but a few were scientists working to advance our understanding of what lays above us.  One such...

Once again it is Oscar bait season and the plethora of well made, terrifically acted feature films is ramping up into high gear.  The (mostly) dramas are aesthetically pleasing, generally, thought-provoking and not only require the audience to think but to have them leave the theater feeling a range of emotions.  In her feature film direc...
