I have always found films about India to be fascinating. Probably because India is a place of mystery, magic, philosophy, and hidden secrets. A place so big and filled with so many people that you get the feeling that anything could happen at any moment; and it did in the most terrifying way in 2008. That's when the members of the "Lashkar-e-T... Read More

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

Stepping a bit out of my horror comfort zone, I set upon the task to watch Lionsgate's 4K re-release of the 2005 Nicolas Cage thriller Lord of War.I am far from a Nicolas Cage (National Treasure) fan; however, in this case, I found myself really engaged in watching this movie. Let me say that Yuri Orlov is one of the most despicable characters to g... Read More
