Most people can recall a time in their young lives when someone older inspired them and/or believed in them.  Perhaps it was a teacher or a coach or a tutor, etc. who helped them see the potential they had even when they couldn't.  There have been numerous films over the years that have explored this theme and it is common to get at l...

Jane Austen published four novels in her short life and two more were published posthumously. The original four, Mansfield Park, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice and Emma, have not only been part of school curriculums the world over but have been adapted for both television and theatrical release.  The latter, Emma, even had a modern...

DuPont, a multi-billion-dollar company, has been creating products to make our lives better for decades…or so we had been led to believe.  Teflon, their non-stick coating that covers pans in homes all over the world, used to be manufactured with PFOA – C8, a chemical that has been shown to be harmful to all life.  It is estim...

Nobel Prize nominee H.G. Wells was a writer who was ahead of his time.  Considered one of the "Fathers of Science Fiction" he wrote a novel published in 1897 called The Invisible Man. Almost forty years later, Universal Pictures released a feature film version of the novel starring Claude Raines as Dr. Jack Griffin/ The Invisible Man... Read More

Cultural phenomenons are rare. Disney, while certainly no stranger to creating them, found something special in 2013's ‘Frozen'. Even if you've never seen the film (do you people actually exist?), It's likely you've been treated to an impromptu rendition of its Oscar-winning song "Let It Go" by an enthusiastic young "Elsa"...

Taika Waititi has an impressive and eclectic body of work. From vampires living a mundane life to assembling the largest group of superheroes, he has entertained audiences with his unique writing and filmmaking style.  His latest offering, Jojo Rabbit, leans more on the controversial side with viewers divided as to whether or not it is a brill...

Director Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones) is known for television so he made an interesting choice with his feature film directorial debut and the outcome eludes to his past experiences.  In 2019, he brought 21 Bridges, a police "procedural" starring Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) to theaters.  The intense drama chronicles a polic...

Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941; "A day that will live in infamy".  It is the day the Japanese bombed American ships killings almost 2500 soldiers and caused the United States to officially enter World War II.  For the next six months, the Japanese seemed to rally at every opportunity and decisively won battles against the United...

(Alyn Darnay)  2/14/2020 11:41 AM EDT
Some memories never fade and a great film sometimes has a way of making them all that more vivid. One I'll never forget is racing through the canyons of Beverley, Coldwater, Laurel, and Topanga in my brand new GT 350 Ford Shelby Mustang. Sure wish I still owned that car, it has always been my favorite and fastest. Thank you, Carroll Shelby, for a l... Read More

Question: What do you call a film that's not funny, not deeply dramatic, and feels like a messed-up effort to re-make a good foreign film? I guess you call it "Downhill" and label it a ‘dramedy'. To sum up the "Downhill" situation; the filmmakers took what should have been a dream comedy pairing, in this case, the won... Read More
