Every culture has its folklore and tall tales.  Some are sweet and build on traditions that bring a community together while others are bedtime stories.  Still, others are scary and used to keep children on their best behavior.  One of the latter is the Mexican story known as La Llorona or the weeping woman.  For centuries child...

Do you believe in miracles?  What about the power of prayer?  Every year people defy the odds medically and astound doctors by recovering from seemingly fatal injuries or illnesses.  One such story was made into a book in 2017, The Impossible, and was Joyce Smith's retelling of her journey with her religion and how it helped her thro...

In 2001 we were introduced to Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel, xXx), Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker, Running Scared) and a host of other colorful characters in Universal Pictures' The Fast and The Furious.  The movie centered around the idea of family and what that means surrounded by a backdrop of fast cars.  Since then there have been seven ot...

There have been numerous television shows and movies that involve airplanes.  Some of them, including Wings and Airplane!, were humorous others held a more dramatic slant, i.e. Lost or Air Force One.  In most cases, these stories involved action taking place on an airplane or in an airport and in the case of the dramatic offers often...

Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) has made quite the name for himself as a filmmaker.  In 1992 his movie Reservoir Dogs became an instant hit after being screened at the Sundance Film Festival.  Then in 1994 Pulp Fiction won over audiences with its non-linear style of storytelling and its eclectic soundtrack.  Since then he has had nu...

In less than a year we have had two vastly different but very good musical biopics.  Bohemian Rhapsody gave us some vague insight into the world of the Band Queen and its lead singer, Freddy Mercury (Rami Malek; Mr. Robot) while Rocketman offered a grittier and more fantastical view of the legend that is Elton John (Taron Egerton; Kingsman: Th...

The year was 1964 and DC Comics introduced a group made up of young superhero sidekicks including, Kid Flash, Robin, and Aqualad.  Not long after Wonder girl was added and these junior superheroes became the Teen Titans.  Over the next fifty-five years, there have been numerous iterations of this group and this past year the DC Universe b...

Family – to each of us the word means something different.  It could be your immediate family; siblings and parents; or it could be your extended family; grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins.  For some, it includes people you are not blood-related to – friends.  However you define the word, it is still a group of people o...

It was 25 years ago that Disney brought us their animated version of the classic Shakespearean play, Hamlet. The Lion King offered wonderful animation, an original soundtrack created by Tim Rice and Elton John and a somewhat humorous look at the animal kingdom.  For ninety minutes, it entertained audiences and eventually grossed almost a billi...

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  7/9/2019 12:11 PM EST
Gotham City - the home of Batman - was introduced in DC comics in December 1940.  It has remained a staple of the "Bat" world ever since and in 2014 it once again became the backdrop for a new television series on fox aptly titled, Gotham. On January 3, 2019, the fifth and final season debuted to try and wrap up half a decade of chao... Read More
