Back in 1990, Sega decided to release their answer to Super Mario Brothers with a fast, little, blue hedgehog named Sonic.  Of course, with all of the remakes and reboots coming out of Hollywood these days, it was only a matter of time before Sonic was brought to life in a live-action movie.  Originally slated to be released in late 2019,...

In 2011, Julian Fellows' Downton Abbey splashed onto the PBS scene. Maybe, at first, that doesn't sound all that exciting but the millions of fans of the series will tell you otherwise. We meet the Crawley family in 1912, the day after the sinking of the Titanic. We see the family through all the trials (literally) and tribulations of being... Read More

Why is it that the powers that be in Hollywood think that almost every novel should be turned into a major motion picture?  Sometimes the outcome is worthy of the original work but more often than not the results are less than stellar. Part of the problem is that novels usually have so many details that movies would need to be several hou... Read More

We first met Annabelle in "The Conjuring" series of films, which portray stories from the work of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. In 2014, Annabelle got her own film, followed by a prequel in 2017 titled "Annabelle: Creation". Now, the third film in the franchise, "Annabelle Comes Home", which was rele... Read More

Everyone knows who The Beatles are. Young or old, you have heard a song of theirs. They are an iconic part of not only music history but a huge part of cultural history. Again, ICONIC. But what if we lived in a world where they didn't exist? What if you were the only person who knew that this prolific band ever existed? Would you use this knowl... Read More

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Disney experienced what was called the Disney Rennaissance. During this time, Walt Disney Pictures released what are now classic films including "The Little Mermaid", "Beauty and the Beast", and "The Lion King". In 1992, they also released "Aladdin",  based on the class... Read More

In 2014, we were introduced to John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves (The Matrix). Originally, Wick was a former hitman trying to live a more normal life but after his wife died and her last gift to him, a dog, was killed by some Russian mobsters, all bets were off. Wick returns to the life he knows best - the life he excels at to get revenge. The film... Read More

In 1997, we were first introduced to the top-secret agency called Men In Black, whose purpose is to monitor alien activity on Earth. We met Agents Jay (Will Smith; Aladdin) and K (Tommy Lee Jones; Jason Bourne) and got a glimpse inside their world.  We then saw two other releases - Men in Black II in 2002 and Men in Bl...

High school can be tough. For some, it can be an absolute nightmare. There will always be "that crowd" of kids who deem themselves superior, pulling pranks often on vulnerable victims. These victims can go either way in life - they can rise above their torment and become stronger for it or they can be left permanently scarred in ways that... Read More
