In 1988, Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) directed a movie that changed the world of animation called Who Framed Roger Rabbit?  Combining live-action footage with animation was a new concept that stunned and enthralled audiences and critics alike.  Four years later another genre-mixing movie, Cool World, brought a darker and more matu...

It is rather amazing that British author Roald Dahl (James and the Giant Peach) wrote children's novels for a living because his works were usually dark and often rather morbid.  Adults were generally the villains in his stories and the undertones in his writing lent themselves to a lack of sentimentality.  In 1964 Dahl wrote a childr...

In the last thirty years, video games have become a multi-billion-dollar industry.  Of course, that means at some point, they would probably get the feature film treatment. For Tomb Raider, that became a reality in 2001 when a relatively unknown Angelina Jolie (Eternals) starred in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.  The highly anticipated action-a... Read More

When J.J. Abrams (Star Wars Episode VIII: The Force Awakens) was sixteen years old, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial came out in movie theaters.  Looking at Abrams' career, it is hard to imagine he wasn't influenced by the Spielberg film.  Fast forward, almost thirty years, and Abrams wrote a script about a group of kids that accidental...
