When James Cameron (Avatar; Titanic) read Yukito Kishiro's Manga, Gunnm, twenty years ago he knew he wanted to make it into a major motion picture with himself directing.  However, his other projects derailed his desire and, after having penned the screenplay, Cameron handed over the work to protégé, Robert Rodriguez (Sin Cit...

At the ripe old age of twenty-three, John Singleton wrote and directed his first feature film – Boyz n the Hood.  The movie offered an honest look at the lives of young black men living in an impoverished neighborhood in California and garnered Singleton two Oscar nominations.  Two years later his second film, Poetic Justice, was re...

In June 1914, a young Bosnian named Gavrilo Princip, tired of the Austro- Hungarian rule in Bosnia, assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie in Sarajevo.  This act led to the July Crisis and by August 1914 France, Britain, and Russia were at war with Austria-Hungry, Germany, and Italy.  This conflict became known as Worl...

M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) is known for his dramatic thrillers that offer a twist.  He usually keeps the audience guessing as to what is really going on and reveals the truth at the end, often to the surprise of the viewers.  In 2000 he presented fans with a different type of "superhero" story in Unbreakable starring S...

When Deadpool made its way to theaters on 2016 it did so with a hard R rating much to the studio's and parents' chagrin.  It was only natural when the sequel arrived that it too would have that same R rating and be inappropriate for children.  In fact, part of what audiences like so much about the films and the character is his crass deme...
