Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson produced some of the best films of the 1980s including Beverly Hills Cop and, arguably their most profitable film, Top Gun.  However, their first producing collaboration came in 1983 when they worked on the critically panned but box office hit, Flashdance. Starring Jennifer Beals (Swamp Thing) in her feature f... Read More

Tom Cruise (War of The Worlds) is known for his action movies with fast-paced, amazing stunts that, at times, seem death-defying.  After his break out roles in Risky Business and Top Gun, and his terrific performances in more serious movies like Rain Man and Born on the Fourth of July, Cruise decided to join another Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheim...

In 1898 H.G. Wells wrote a novel called The War of the Worlds.   It told the fictitious story of an alien invasion taking over the earth.  In 1938 Orson Welles infamously narrated a radio broadcast of the "invasion" but since many listeners tuned in later they missed the announcement at the beginning of the shows stating the new...

There's something unique, beautiful, and visually stunning about the way that British filmmakers try to recreate a certain era of their history. I'm referring to the Georgian/Regency era when big manner houses dotted the countryside and the polite society of upper-class nobility lived a charmed and somewhat jaded existence. It's a historic period t... Read More

If Top Gun was released on May 16, 1986, then why is Top Gun Day celebrated on May 13th?  And what exactly is Top Gun day? Well, the answer to the first question is because the organizers of the first Top Gun day made a mistake and the answer to the second question is Top Gun day is similar to Talk Like a Pirate day where people go around quot...

They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words.  Sometimes, however, it is worth so much more than that.  It can evoke emotions, spark memories, and relate what the photographer was trying to relay about the subject.  For journalist Michael Block (LaKeith Stanfield; Sorry to Bother You), an assignment about hurricane Katrina victims in Lo...

If you've ever thought about cheating on your spouse, you should take a deep breath, sit back and watch Paramount Pictures 1987 film, Fatal Attraction. Directed by Adrian Lyne (Flashdance), the suspenseful, violent thriller gave anyone who was in a relationship pause and made them think.  Watching what Alex Forrest (Glenn Close; Air Force One)...

The rhythm section is the heart of any band.  The drums are the heartbeat that keeps the tempo for the rest of the instruments.  It is the same with the human body.  The heartbeat can be very fast when a person is angry or agitated or slow and smooth when feeling a sense of calm and serenity. For a trained gunman, the goal is to achi... Read More

In 1953 Elvis Aron Presley (Jailhouse Rock) walked into a recording studio and cut two songs as a birthday gift for his mother. By 1956 he had a recording contract and was touring all over the country to the screams of adoring teenage girls.  His boyish good looks mixed with his "rockabilly" sound made him unique.  His outrageou...

Over one hundred years ago, film producer, Adolph Zukor, took 22 actors and actresses and gave them contracts to work for him and his partners Daniel and Charles Frohman.  Originally called Famous Players Film Company, it later became Paramount Pictures or simply, Paramount.  They have one of the highest-grossing films of all time, Titani...
