Kevin Patrick Smith (Clerks) was born and raised fifteen minutes from me in Monmouth County, New Jersey, and is a mere six months older than me (yet abundantly more financially successful).  When his first feature film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, won two awards and later screened at the Cannes International Film Festival, where it c...

The more things change…the more they stay the same.  There was a time in the United States when African Americans were seen as property instead of human beings.  A time when the northern states and the southern ones disagreed about slave ownership which ultimately led to war.  There are some who still hold these beliefs today,...

Back in the early 2000s, AMC (originally American Movie Classics) aired mostly…you guessed it, old movies.
