Do you believe in destiny or fate or love at first sight?  Many romantics say they do but how many really feel that spark just from one glance?  Are you more of a realistic, practical, scientific person who needs proof before you can accept things as fact?  What if two people at opposite ends of the "love" spectrum meet?&nb...

If you are a child of the '90s or are the parent of one then you are surely aware of what Pokemon are.  These fictional creatures live in the Pokemon Universe (of course) and have human trainers who catch them and prepare them to battle each other for sport.   Each one has unique powers that they can use when fighting.  This concept ...

Lego Toys- The building blocks of our childhood. Lego Toys - The nightmare of every barefoot parent as they wander around the house in the dark late at night.  Lego Toys- those interlocking, plastic pieces that clicked and snapped into place and fueled one's imagination.  Remember the hours of enjoyment spent building people and things?&n...

In 1992 United Nations forces were attacked in Somalia while trying to deliver food to the starving people.  Civil war and underhanded tactics by those in power had left that country in a state of desperation.  By 1993 Mohamed Farrah Aidid had a great influence over a number of citizens and commanded an army of insurgents who went around ...

In February 2001 Uglydoll made its way to toy store shelves and was awarded the specialty toy of the year.  The concept began because of a long distance relationship between David Horvath and his future wife Sun-Min Kim. The brand became very popular and has now spawned not only an animated feature film but a television series as well.  S... Read More

Google the definition of a long shot and this is what you will get - a venture or guess that has only the slightest chance of succeeding or being accurate.  That idea can pertain to almost anything from a job prospect to asking someone out on a date to winning the lottery.  In the case of the new movie from Lionsgate, Long Shot could incl...

When one thinks of comedy legends, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are definitely on the list.

The film Stan & Ollie was released in 2018, bringing the two men b... Read More

When James Cameron (Avatar; Titanic) read Yukito Kishiro's Manga, Gunnm, twenty years ago he knew he wanted to make it into a major motion picture with himself directing.  However, his other projects derailed his desire and, after having penned the screenplay, Cameron handed over the work to protégé, Robert Rodriguez (Sin Cit...
