In less than a year we have had two vastly different but very good musical biopics.  Bohemian Rhapsody gave us some vague insight into the world of the Band Queen and its lead singer, Freddy Mercury (Rami Malek; Mr. Robot) while Rocketman offered a grittier and more fantastical view of the legend that is Elton John (Taron Egerton; Kingsman: Th...

Family – to each of us the word means something different.  It could be your immediate family; siblings and parents; or it could be your extended family; grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins.  For some, it includes people you are not blood-related to – friends.  However you define the word, it is still a group of people o...

It was 25 years ago that Disney brought us their animated version of the classic Shakespearean play, Hamlet. The Lion King offered wonderful animation, an original soundtrack created by Tim Rice and Elton John and a somewhat humorous look at the animal kingdom.  For ninety minutes, it entertained audiences and eventually grossed almost a billi...

If you look up the description of a black hole you while find -- "a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape".  It's a massive void of nothing at the far reaches of outer space that holds immense energy.  What if humankind could harvest that energy and use it to power our eve...

As with any war, there are always casualties with the effects of war can be long lasting even if they don't seem readily apparent.   On September 2, 1945, the Second World War (a.k.a World War II) ended.  German forces were defeated and Allied troops were sent in to keep the peace and help rebuild.  The British ended up in the ha...

Imagine all the people… had no idea who The Beatles – John, Paul, George, and Ringo- were. What if they never existed? Imagine if you were the only person on Earth who remembered them and their incredible catalog of music.   What if you could publish Hey, Jude, Yesterday, Penny Lane, etc. under your own name?  You would certa...
