Imagine what literature would have been like if J.R.R. Tolkien had had a different childhood?  Imagine what if the creative mind that was his had not had the experiences he was exposed to in his early life?  Would we have gotten Middle Earth? Arda? Made up languages?  Luckily, we will never have to find out as the influences that sha... Read More

In 1993 DC Comics opened an offshoot branch called Vertigo.  It was used to publish the more graphic stories that couldn't be published under the Comics Code Authority.  It allowed DC Comics to offer readers more graphic violence, nudity, drug use, and profanity.  One of these stories revolved around mob wives and was called The Kitc...

Every culture has its folklore and tall tales.  Some are sweet and build on traditions that bring a community together while others are bedtime stories.  Still, others are scary and used to keep children on their best behavior.  One of the latter is the Mexican story known as La Llorona or the weeping woman.  For centuries child...

Do you believe in miracles?  What about the power of prayer?  Every year people defy the odds medically and astound doctors by recovering from seemingly fatal injuries or illnesses.  One such story was made into a book in 2017, The Impossible, and was Joyce Smith's retelling of her journey with her religion and how it helped her thro...

In 2001 we were introduced to Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel, xXx), Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker, Running Scared) and a host of other colorful characters in Universal Pictures' The Fast and The Furious.  The movie centered around the idea of family and what that means surrounded by a backdrop of fast cars.  Since then there have been seven ot...

There have been numerous television shows and movies that involve airplanes.  Some of them, including Wings and Airplane!, were humorous others held a more dramatic slant, i.e. Lost or Air Force One.  In most cases, these stories involved action taking place on an airplane or in an airport and in the case of the dramatic offers often...

Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) has made quite the name for himself as a filmmaker.  In 1992 his movie Reservoir Dogs became an instant hit after being screened at the Sundance Film Festival.  Then in 1994 Pulp Fiction won over audiences with its non-linear style of storytelling and its eclectic soundtrack.  Since then he has had nu...

In less than a year we have had two vastly different but very good musical biopics.  Bohemian Rhapsody gave us some vague insight into the world of the Band Queen and its lead singer, Freddy Mercury (Rami Malek; Mr. Robot) while Rocketman offered a grittier and more fantastical view of the legend that is Elton John (Taron Egerton; Kingsman: Th...

The year was 1964 and DC Comics introduced a group made up of young superhero sidekicks including, Kid Flash, Robin, and Aqualad.  Not long after Wonder girl was added and these junior superheroes became the Teen Titans.  Over the next fifty-five years, there have been numerous iterations of this group and this past year the DC Universe b...
