J.K.Rowling couldn't have imagined the phenomenon she created when she originally spun a story about a magical world and a boy wizard.  Like so many of the comic book superheroes, Harry Potter has become its own universe with avid fans of all ages worldwide.  When the eight films ended there was a certain sadness to see it all come to...

She was a talented writer.

In 1957 Random House published Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  It told the story of a green, furry creature who hated Christmas - can you believe that!?!  Over the past sixty-one years, it has been made into several movies both animated and live-action.  This holiday season Illuminations has taken on the challenge with it...

I've been ‘jonesing' for a good Action/Adventure film for some time now. It's been quite a while since a really good one has graced the screen. I like getting involved in the film's action, quietly cheering on the hero, watching the complex story unfold, realizing the impossibility of overcoming the situation, and then seeing a slam-bam over ...

I never rate a movie by what I want it to be; I choose instead to look at it as a stand-alone piece of creative work and how it will impact an audience. With that in mind, if I were to use a one-word grading system to define the film "Bohemian Rhapsody" that word would be "Brilliant". The film is a joyous celebration of the 70's... Read More

Rowan Atkinson (Four Weddings and a Funeral) is known for his British, slapstick characters like Mr. Bean, and probably one of his most popular behind Bean is Johnny English.  Johnny first graced the big screen in Johnny English back in 2003 and he returned again in 2011's Johnny English Reborn.  Now, after a seven-year hiatus, he resurfa...

Have you ever wondered what type of person it takes to want to travel into space?  Obviously, they need to be adventurous, brave, intelligent and strong both physically and mentally.  However, Astronauts are made up of a corps of unique individuals who all have their own strengths and weaknesses.  Now imagine what it must have taken ...
