Through the years there have been tons of sports-related movies. Football, baseball, hockey, basketball…you name it, it has probably been done.  Heck, there is even a movie about bobsledding. So, when another sports film heads to theaters, you have to wonder what makes it different from all the rest?  The latest endeavor, distribut... Read More

Hypothetically, what if you found yourself on a small, twin-engine plane without a pilot.  Would you know what to do?  Would you be able to fly the plane?  What if you only had a few, informal lessons? Would it be enough?  That is exactly the dilemma Sara (Allison Williams; Get Out) is faced with in the Mikael Marcimain (Call G... Read More

Diversity has become a common topic for discussion in the entertainment industry.  From "whitewashing" of award nominees and casting movie/television roles with actors of different ethnicities than the characters they are supposed to be portraying.  As such, the country is seeing a shift towards more conscious and varied charact...

As the saying goes, "War is hell".  While it may seem like a rather trite statement to make, those who have lived through it would probably say it is the truth.  Grim memories of watching friends get killed, with all the blood and guts that go along with it, or remembering shooting the enemy, haunt many a soldier.  Thought ...

What if you watched a movie about poor African Americans living in New York?  What if that film depicted growing racial tensions between black people and Italian or Korean shop owners in the neighborhood?  What if, after a confrontation between the shop owners and the locals, a young black man was killed by the police which started a riot...
