In 1985 Bryan Stevenson graduated from Harvard Law School and instead of going to work in a fancy law firm, making lots of money and working 80 hours a week, he chose to work for the Southern Center for Human Rights.  After federal funding for that program was cut he decided to create the non-profit EJI=Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, ...

Every winter holiday season there are a number of movies that come out so families can head to the theater and enjoy their break from work/school. There are action movies, blockbusters, and of course family-friendly fare that includes animated features.  In 2019 Twentieth Century Fox joined the myriad of studios releasing films with their anim...

There is a problem in this country when someone is even vaguely accused of a crime.  Law enforcement and the media seem to convict the suspected perpetrator, sometimes with little to no real evidence.  The media also add fuel to the fire in the court of public opinion and so often people believe what they say without question.  If yo...

It seems if there is a comic book/graphic novel out in the world, then at some point we will see a big-screen adaptation.  Marvel and DC Comics have had great success in the last ten years turning their superheroes and villains into major box office hits and now Valiant Comics is trying to duplicate the achievements of their counterparts with ...

Cecil B. DeMille is known as a founding father of American film and the most commercially successful producer-director in all of film history.  He made seventy feature films both silent and with sound and he will never be forgotten.  Some of his features are still shown today and probably his most famous is the 1956 version of The Ten Com...

We've all heard the sayings "silence is golden" or silence is a virtue" but in A Quiet Place, silence is lifesaving.  Imagine not being able to make a sound at all…ever.  If you do the consequences could be deadly.  Imagine being a child living in constant fear or the parents of those children trying to keep the...

There are all kinds of people in this world… rich people, poor people, good people, religious people, selfish people, altruistic people, and downright douchebags.  You know the type.  The kind of person who uses anyone and everyone to get what they want and doesn't care who they step on along the way.  Howard Ratner (Adam Sand...

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...
