We all know the story behind Superman.  As his home planet of Krypton was being destroyed, Kal-El's parents placed him in a rocket ship that crash-landed on earth and he was raised by the Kents.  We've seen his story and his backstory portrayed on television and film numerous times over but what about his back, back story?  W...

In 1976 Rocky was released in theaters and made a household name of Sylvester Stallone (First Blood).  It spawned five sequels and has become one of the most iconic boxing movies of all time.  It also gave us one of the most recognizable soundtracks in movie history.  In 2015, after a nine-year hiatus, audiences were treated to the n...

War is coming…war between the old and the new.  At least that is what American Gods would have you believe.  After an almost two year hiatus, the hit television series is finally returning to STARZ on March 10, 2019, and fans of the show won't be disappointed.  Building on the premise and introduction of Season One, Season...

"Look at this Stuff. Isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?"…With these now iconic words, Disney animation experienced a resurgence in their films.  Throughout the 1970s and 1980s Disney films weren't as popular as they had been in the past but that all changed in 1989 with the release of The Little Mermai...

Almost nine years ago Dreamworks Animations introduced us to Hiccup (Jay Baruchel; Goon), the hapless son of the Chief of Berk, who wanted nothing more than to please his father but lacked the conviction to be a dragon hunter.  One day in the forest he met Toothless, an injured Night Fury dragon, considered to be the last of its kind.  Th...

Overlord, which hails from producer JJ Abrams, is not your typical World War II film. While at first, when the film opens up to a scene we have seen many times before - soldiers on a plane waiting to jump to their targets - the story seems normal, however, once the soldiers hit the ground, we quickly learn that this is no routine mission.Led by Ser...

Melissa McCarthy is known for her comedic roles in films.  While having played smaller parts she really stood out as Megan in 2011's Bridesmaids. Since then she has made audiences laugh in hits such as This is 40, Spy and Life of the Party.  This past year she took on a more dramatic role-playing real-life writer Lee Israel in Fox Searchl...

There was a time in this country when westerns were common fare at cinemas everywhere.  However, since before the 1970s interest has waned and it isn't often we get a good old fashioned Western on the big screen.  In 2018 writer/director Jacques Audiard (Rust and Bone) brought his version to theaters with The Sisters Brothers starring...
