Everyone knows about penguins.  Almost all of us have seen them in a zoo, a cartoon, or in a film, but how much do we really know other than the fact that they waddle around and are cute?  What do we really understand about their lives and mating rituals?  Sure we may have seen documentaries about them before but nothing like this on...

(Stephanie Coats)  4/10/2019 11:20 AM EDT
In 2011, the film Hanna, directed by Joe Wright and starring a teenage Saoirse Ronan, was released to rave reviews from critics and audiences. It was a different kind of action film with a teenage girl at the center doing the most of the fighting. Now Amazon has taken that film, fleshed out the story, and made a new streaming series, also titled Ha... Read More

Dick Cheney (Christian Bale; The Dark Knight) spent much of his political career flying under the radar despite the fact that he held some of the highest political offices there are in Washington, D.C.  Perhaps that is due to the fact that the man himself was very secretive - a trait that would serve him well in his later years.  After le...

In spite of a prolific career making films, many of us will forever behold Emilio Estevez (The Way; Bobby; The Breakfast Club; The Mighty Ducks) holed up in a library as part of a motley crew of (seemingly) mismatched misfits.  Now, some thirty-odd years later, we get to return to the library in a somewhat grown-up version of The Breakfast Clu...

Hellboy Animated: Sword of Storms and Blood & Iron Double Feature   Hellboy: Sword of Storms 4K Ultra HD Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  4/2/2019 1:40 AM EDT
Face it… Fan-girls and boys, love Hellboy. And really, what's not to love? A red-skinned, snarky, Nazi-hating demon, which fights for and with, the good guys. Not to mention, a quasi, semi-secretive government agency that directs his actions to destroy paranormal and Lovecraftian threats to planet earth?! Think about it.  IT has al... Read More
