Given the terrible state of our economical and political landscape at the moment, a film like The Ides of March could not have come at a better time. The movie tells the fictional story of a Presidential candidate and his team while they attempt to make a successful run for the White House.George Clooney plays Governor and Presidential Candidate Mi...

You can never predict what will draw an audience. In the world of television, success is a fickle thing. Many shows have come and gone, some had the chops to make it past the initial first season but due to any number of reasons they were unable to make it. Others however have whatever that "x-factor" is which keeps them on the air past t... Read More

It is always interesting to look back on films of the past and marvel at what was accomplished with so few resources. Given what can be done today in the world of animation, it is beyond impressive to see what the animators could achieve with simple 2-D pencil drawings. Disney was the company that innovated animation and captured the minds of audie... Read More

There are few who would debate that William Shakespeare is one of the most prolific writers in history. His works have been adapted and poured over for generations; always finding new audiences to rediscover his deep and elegant writing style. Once film was invented it was only natural to bring his works to the silver screen. It was in the mid 1990... Read More

"Greetings Starfighter, You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xur and the Kodan Armada." These words are etched into the brains of many an adult and possibly the children of those adults. Back in the early 1980's everyone was looking to jump onto the next big science fiction adventure tale and along... Read More

When the Hangover came out it set a new bar for the type of high level raunchy comedy that audience's love to watch, and naturally afterwards many films attempted to re-create that same energy but failed to do so. It is difficult to say why that is, but what matters is that this past summer we were treated to a new comedy featuring a cast of women ... Read More

When looking back at the birth of the comic book movie genre there are a few that stand out. As time passes the films have gotten better, given the popularity of the genre and Hollywood's willingness to jump on anything popular it is not surprising to see so many titles get their shot on the big screen. The first X-men film, directed by Bryan Singe... Read More

When it comes to horror and suspense, there are few directors who can truly nail the proper tone to get the best reaction from audiences. Guillermo Del Toro has made a career of accomplishing just that. His latest film, which he wrote but didn't direct, is something of a passion project. When he was a child he watched the telefilm Don't be ... Read More

Vengeance is beautiful; that's the tag line for the new film Columbiana from EuropaCorp. The movie, which translated means Columbian Woman, is the latest from the aforementioned French production company run by Lou Besson who has brought the American public some of the more popular action films over the years. Some of those include Taken, The P... Read More

There are many moments in history that we all know very well. One of the most well-known and tragic points in American history is the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. We all know of how it transpired, while at the theater with his wife, President Lincoln was shot by John Wilkes Booth. What many of us don't know is the conspiracy that too... Read More
