"David Foster is one of the greatest producers of all time without question".  High praise especially when it is coming out of the mouth of former Columbia Records President Clive Davis.  Of course, Foster's 47 Grammy nominations and 16 wins also speak for themselves.  The numbers certainly don't lie, neither does the long ...

FFFRREEEEDDDOOOOMMMMM!!!!!!!  That one word in an iconic scene made Braveheart a memorable movie.  Released in 1995, the film earned director and star Mel Gibson (the Lethal Weapon series) two academy awards.  The story is based on fictionalized tales of William Wallis, a Scottish patriot, and leader who defended his country against ...

If there was an "Island of Misfit Toys" in the world of comic books, Doom Patrol would certainly fit the bill perfectly.  First appearing in My Greatest Adventure in 1963, The Doom Patrol is primarily made up of "Chief" Niles Caulder (Timothy Dalton; The Living Daylights), "Robotman" Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser; ...

The political climate in the United States has been more volatile than I have ever seen before.  Potential candidates are spending millions and millions of dollars to win any election they can and it honestly seems to be getting out of control as the country becomes more divided.  But where does that leave the small-town folks who just wa...

Long before September 11, 2001, there had been airplanes hijacked all over the world.  However, after the events that occurred on that fateful day, the world, especially the United States, have become much more cautious about security screenings.  Those planes that were taken over on United States soil were a wakeup call that we are livin...

If you were a teenager in the 1980s, there is no doubt you were in some way influenced by writer/director John Hughes.  He wrote and sometimes directed hit movie after hit movie, dealing with those awkward high school years when one is trying to discover who they are and how they fit into this world.    More often than not he tackled...

Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing) has a truly powerful voice which translates into his storytelling and directing style.  He generally gravitates towards topics that highlight the injustices suffered by African-Americans and his films are often polarizing.  Four of his movies, Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, 4Little Girls and She's Gotta Have...

In the late 1970's John Travolta (Pulp Fiction) was riding high in Hollywood.  He was part of a successful television show, Welcome Back, Kotter, and proved he could handle leading man status as Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever and Danny in the film adaptation of the musical, Grease.  In 1980, he decided to star in another movie called...

The name Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-old Virgin) has become synonymous with successful, comedic films in Hollywood.  Pete Davidson (The Dirt) started his career in the comedy club scene and moved up to become a regular on Saturday Night Live. When Apatow directed Davidson in a small role in 2015's Trainwreck he knew Davidson was something spe... Read More

Disney Channel has a long history of creating wonderful movies made for television despite still being considered to be in its relative youth as a channel.  Always evolving, they had great success with 2006's High School Musical and its two sequels followed by Camp Rock and its sequel and then Descendants and its sequel (Disney is big on seque...
