Being royalty is never an easy lot in life but more so when you are a queen in the sixteenth century.  It's even more difficult when everyone is out to steal your throne, including a neighboring queen during an incredibly tumultuous time in your own country.  Mary, Queen of Scots, is that noblewoman.  Having become queen at a mer...

In the 1980s panic gripped the United States as the HIV and AIDS epidemic reached epic proportions, killing a large part of the gay male population.  For over two decades afterward discrimination against those infected with the disease played a prevalent part in the dialogue of the Country.  In 1993 the first major feature film showcased ...

In 1966 a new television show debuted on CBS called Mission: Impossible.  It aired for seven seasons and had a revival for two more seasons on ABC beginning in 1988.  Then in 1996, Tom Cruise (Risky Business) brought the concept to the big screen in a film adaptation of the show.  Over the next twenty-two years he has played Ethan Hu...

Are you a pet lover?  More specifically, do you love those cute, furry friends that bark in excitement every time you walk in the door? If the answer to these questions is yes then you will want to watch Dog Days over and over again. With some of the cutest faces assembled the movie is one long awwwww interspersed with some sweet and loving an... Read More

Charles Dickens was a novelist known for creating memorable characters and stories that endure.  Oliver Twist, A Tale of Two Cities, and David Copperfield were well-known books that are still studied in school today.  Each year in November another of his classics, A Christmas Carol, is revisited in various forms all over the United States...

Six years ago we fell in love with video game characters Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly; Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman; A Million Ways to Die in the West).  These two worked their way into our hearts and stayed there.  We routed for them despite their "glitches" and were so happy whe...

Racism and racial profiling are unfortunately still a very large issue in this country.  Nearly every month there is a major news story regarding a young black man being killed by a member of the Police force.  The subject has been regurgitated time and time again in newspapers, on television, in books, and in the movies.  For Blinds...

The old saying goes… you can pick your friends and you can pick your nose but you can't pick your family?  But what if you could?  Well for some people that is exactly what happens.  On average there are over 400,000 children in foster care each year and of the 135,000 children are adopted each year, 59% come from the fost...

J.K.Rowling couldn't have imagined the phenomenon she created when she originally spun a story about a magical world and a boy wizard.  Like so many of the comic book superheroes, Harry Potter has become its own universe with avid fans of all ages worldwide.  When the eight films ended there was a certain sadness to see it all come to...

She was a talented writer. She had compassion and conviction.  The combination made her words powerful and she became one of the most respected war correspondents in the world.  That compassion and Conviction are also likely what got her killed.  Running into war zones while others ran away, she told their stories… the soldier...
