Since 2007 audiences have had the pleasure of watching a Saturday morning cartoon come to life in the form of Transformers. These autoboot, alien creatures came to Earth seeking a place to hide from the evil forces that looked to destroy them.  Over five films spread across a dozen years, we have gotten to know Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatr...

In the past five years, The Walt Disney Studio has been reworking their animated classics and turned them into live action features.  While many (myself included) were skeptical at first, Disney has managed to create some wonderful films that the whole family can enjoy, whether seeing it for the first time or reminiscing about the stories...

In 1941 Aquaman was introduced in a backup feature of the DC comics.  Over the years he was more of a minor character in the DC Universe even though he is part of the Justice League.  In the past, he was drawn as a blonde haired, fair skinned pretty boy who rode a seahorse. He was taken very seriously over the years even in the Saturday m... Read More

What if one day you were a fourteen-year-old kid and the next you were a male superhero in his thirties?  How would you handle it?  Would you be freaking out? What if you obtained those powers from an ancient wizard? Imagine you could switch back and forth between adult and teenager by just uttering one simple word – Shazam!  I... Read More

Jordan Peele was always known as part of the comedy duo Key and Peele and was considered to be very funny.  Then in 2017, he made his directorial debut with the critically acclaimed thriller, Get Out for which he won the Oscar for best original screenplay.  It showed us the dark side of his personality and had audiences looking at him in ...

In 1934 P.L. Travers published a children's book about a magical nanny named Mary Poppins.  Thirty years later Disney brought her to life in the feature film Mary Poppins starring Julia Andrews (The Sound of Music). After fifty-four years, Disney once again decided to revisit the beloved character when Mary Poppins Returns hit theaters last ye... Read More

Amination can take on many forms and formats.  They can also tell varying types of stories, from Disney's "happily ever after" tales to darker fare like we saw in this year's Oscar winner, Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.  Then you get animated movies that are more mature in nature such as Anomalisa and the raunchy, R-rated com...

The human race, for the most part, seems to be enamored with the idea of death.  We fixate on what comes next.  Is there an afterlife?  What happens to our soul when our body is gone? Is there such a thing as reincarnation?  Hispanic cultures even honor their dead on El Dia de los  Muertos.  For the filmmaker, Shawn Sn... Read More

As recent as the 1960's it wasn't safe for African Americans to travel in the southern portion of the United States.  Discrimination was commonplace and segregation was simply a fact of life.  When Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali; Moonlight), an African American classical and Jazz pianist, decided to tour the southern states he needed to ...

Carol Danvers first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1968  as a United States Air Force pilot (rather forward thinking of them, don't you think?).  In 1977 she became Ms.Marvel when an explosion causes her DNA to fuse with Kree Warrior Mar-Vell, giving her superhuman powers. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years,... Read More
