Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing) has a truly powerful voice which translates into his storytelling and directing style.  He generally gravitates towards topics that highlight the injustices suffered by African-Americans and his films are often polarizing.  Four of his movies, Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, 4Little Girls and She's Gotta Have...

In the late 1970's John Travolta (Pulp Fiction) was riding high in Hollywood.  He was part of a successful television show, Welcome Back, Kotter, and proved he could handle leading man status as Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever and Danny in the film adaptation of the musical, Grease.  In 1980, he decided to star in another movie called...

The name Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-old Virgin) has become synonymous with successful, comedic films in Hollywood.  Pete Davidson (The Dirt) started his career in the comedy club scene and moved up to become a regular on Saturday Night Live.

Disney Channel has a long history of creating wonderful movies made for television despite still being considered to be in its relative youth as a channel.  Always evolving, they had great success with 2006's High School Musical and its two sequels followed by Camp Rock and its sequel and then Descendants and its sequel (Disney is big on seque...

Forty-five years ago a twenty-six-year-old, up and coming director named Steven Spielberg (E.T.: The Extraterrestrial) took Peter Benchley's novel titled Jaws and made it into a major motion picture.  Considered one of the greatest films of all time, it was the highest-grossing movie until the release of Star Wars two years later.  A ...

You rarely hear me fawning over a movie, but when I finally get the opportunity to review a really enjoyable film, well, it's just Great. "The High Note" is such a film. It hits all the right "Notes". It doesn't take itself too seriously, it isn't too heavy, or preachy, or over-wroth with emotion, it just slides right into that ... Read More

When I was in high school (and we won't discuss how long ago that actually was), I remember reading a short story in English class about someone who was invited to a private island by a wealthy gentleman.  Once the stranger got there he realized he was being hunted by the owner.  This year I was reminded of that story when I finally got t...

In 1982  The Air Force Space Command was formed to oversee "space warfare" operations.  Five months ago it was changed to an independent service, The United States Space Force, and charged with organizing, training, and equipping forces for space superiority and dominance, offensive and defensive space control, command satellite...

The glamorous world of the Los Angeles music scene isn't all it's cracked up to be.  Just ask all the celebrities' personal assistants.  They run around ragged always trying to please their incredibly demanding employers.  Meanwhile, they have dreams of their own.  Let's face it… many of them live in the entertainment hub...
