Summer is over, the Fall has begun.  Kids are back in school, learning and striving towards the goal of earning their High School Diplomas.  This achievement is a milestone in the lives of so many young people and seems to be a necessity in today's society to get almost any kind of job.  For those who drop out before they graduat...

For the last ten years, Marvel Studios has been entertaining us with tales of superheroes and Gods.  In the first half of 2018 alone we were treated to blockbusters The Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War and as we hit the halfway point of the year they are once again delighting us with their next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Ant...

Survival...Perseverance…Strength.  How much can we as human beings handle when pushed to our limits?  How strong is our will to live?  For Tami Oldham (Shailene Woodley; Divergent Series)  those questions would be answered in one of the most terrifying events as she struggled to live at sea after a category four hurricane...

HBO is known for quality television that engrosses audiences and keeps them coming back time and time again.  The Sopranos, True Blood and Game of Thrones have all been award winners, just to name a few and the cable network has a strong history excellence in television.  Occasionally they get a mildly entertaining series that has some ap...

Millions of people everyday doing the same thing over and over again.  They leave their nice little homes in the suburbs, get on a train into Manhattan, go to work in some high rise building all day, get back on the train, and head home back to the suburbs.  Nothing much changes from one day to the next and nothing exciting ever really ha...

Five years ago, the world was introduced to the Barden Bellas, a college acapella group who had the goal of regaining past glory and winning a national title.  Three years later, we got the sequel when the Bellas set loftier dreams to include an international stage.  Now we have the last installment in the trilogy, as Pitch Perfect 3...

Let's face it… Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures hit gold back in 2010 when the first Despicable Me movie made its way into theaters.  With great characters, funny lines and a solid story, it delighted audiences, especially the adorable little yellow Minions.  Due to its success, it was followed in 201...

In a year in which female empowerment has already permeated major motion pictures, Sony offers up its latest entry with this summer's version of The Hangover entitled Rough Night. What starts out as some harmless fun in the form of a bachelorette party winds up being a series of mishaps that creates the most surreal evening ...

If you are anything like me, you loved 1999's The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser (School Ties; Gods and Monsters) and Rachel Weisz (The Bourne Legacy).  It was fun, well done and included some interesting ideas about history.  When I heard it was being "reimagined" starring Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible) and Russe...
