Racial profiling has been a problem in this country for many years and there are stories of white police officers shooting and killing unarmed, black men on a regular basis.  Usually, films with this type of story are dramas where family, friends, and communities, search for answers and justice for their fallen loved ones. However, what happen... Read More

Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson produced some of the best films of the 1980s including Beverly Hills Cop and, arguably their most profitable film, Top Gun.  However, their first producing collaboration came in 1983 when they worked on the critically panned but box office hit, Flashdance. Starring Jennifer Beals (Swamp Thing) in her feature f... Read More

Tom Cruise (War of The Worlds) is known for his action movies with fast-paced, amazing stunts that, at times, seem death-defying.  After his break out roles in Risky Business and Top Gun, and his terrific performances in more serious movies like Rain Man and Born on the Fourth of July, Cruise decided to join another Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheim...

In 1898 H.G. Wells wrote a novel called The War of the Worlds.   It told the fictitious story of an alien invasion taking over the earth.  In 1938 Orson Welles infamously narrated a radio broadcast of the "invasion" but since many listeners tuned in later they missed the announcement at the beginning of the shows stating the new...

It was fifty-one years ago when that lovable, talking dog, Scooby-Doo and his best friend Shaggy first appeared on television. Every Saturday morning they, along with their friends Velma, Daphne, and Fred, would ride around in their colorfully decorated van dubbed the "Mystery Machine" eating Scooby Snacks (amongst other foods) and solvin...

If Top Gun was released on May 16, 1986, then why is Top Gun Day celebrated on May 13th?  And what exactly is Top Gun day? Well, the answer to the first question is because the organizers of the first Top Gun day made a mistake and the answer to the second question is Top Gun day is similar to Talk Like a Pirate day where people go around quot...

As a Floridian, when one hears the words Spaceship Earth one immediately thinks of the big, round golf ball that sits at the entrance of Epcot Center.  Looming eighteen stories high,  it greets excited visitors to an amusement park full of wonder and innovation with an international flair.  However, in this case, Spaceship Earth refe...

They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words.  Sometimes, however, it is worth so much more than that.  It can evoke emotions, spark memories, and relate what the photographer was trying to relay about the subject.  For journalist Michael Block (LaKeith Stanfield; Sorry to Bother You), an assignment about hurricane Katrina victims in Lo...

In 1998 The Mask of Zorro was released to critical success and moderate box office numbers.  It was considered one of the best portrayals of the fictitious, heroic vigilante ever seen.  That's probably why seven years later the sequel, The Legend of Zorro, made its way to theaters.  With Antonio Banderas (Desperado) once again in...

In 1919 pulp magazine writer Johnston McCulley created a fictitious character named Zorro.  The vigilante became a hero of the Spanish people living in the Mexican province of California. With his classic black costume, cape, sombrero cordobas and his signature mask he was a dashing and skillful fighter.  He was mysterious and seemingly u... Read More
