In 1988, Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) directed a movie that changed the world of animation called Who Framed Roger Rabbit?  Combining live-action footage with animation was a new concept that stunned and enthralled audiences and critics alike.  Four years later another genre-mixing movie, Cool World, brought a darker and more matu...

In 1982 director Walter Hill (Brewster's Millions) brought together Eddie Murphy (Coming to America) and Nick Nolte (The Prince of Tides) in 48Hrs., a film that has since become attributed with the beginnings of the buddy cop movie genre.  Several series, including Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon, followed this new trend, mostly with great...

It is rather amazing that British author Roald Dahl (James and the Giant Peach) wrote children's novels for a living because his works were usually dark and often rather morbid.  Adults were generally the villains in his stories and the undertones in his writing lent themselves to a lack of sentimentality.  In 1964 Dahl wrote a childr...

While the concept and development of the television set had been around since the early 1900s, it was considered a luxury item that didn't become a staple in homes everywhere until sometime in the late 1950's – early 1960's.   As a way to compete with the convenience of watching shows at home, Paramount Pictures engineers created VistaVi...

Back in 1977 George Lucas (American Graffiti) created a science fiction/outer space movie called Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.  It instantly became a classic, spawned one of the greatest franchises that is still around to this day, and made icons of the cast.  Between the fifth and sixth episodes of Star Wars, Lucas wrote another acti...

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider   Lara Croft: Tomb Raider 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  6/1/2021 12:36 PM EST
In the last thirty years, video games have become a multi-billion-dollar industry.  Of course, that means at some point, they would probably get the feature film treatment. For Tomb Raider, that became a reality in 2001 when a relatively unknown Angelina Jolie (Eternals) starred in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.  The highly anticipated action-a... Read More
