Witchcraft…everyone has their own ideas of what that word means.  Officially it is described as "the practice of magic, especially black magic; the use of spells".  Some truly believe in the power of witchcraft while others think it is all make believe.  Some practice the artform and see it much like an organized rel...

If you look up the definition of the word tenet you will find the following: a principle, belief, or doctrine generally held to be true especially one held in common by members of an organization, movement, or profession.   If you ask director Christopher Nolan (Inception) his definition of Tenet, he will probably tell you it is a movie t...

From 1981 to 2001, Michael Mann (Manhunter) directed only seven feature films.  In that same time frame, Tom Cruise (Top Gun) more than tripled that number of films, and Jaime Foxx (Ray) had a total of eleven with his Oscar-winning performance coming later that year as the lead in Ray.  Jada Pinkett Smith (Scream 2, as Jada Pinkett) had a...

In the 1970s there was a screenplay floating around based on a story by Philip K. Dick (Blade Runner) about a man who experiences a vivid dream/or wakes up from one.
