Homelessness in the United States has reached staggering proportions and shattered our normal perception of what a homeless person looks like.  So often we automatically think of the bum on the street laying on a cardboard bed, the woman dressed in layers pushing around a shopping cart of old bags or blankets or the person at the street corner...

We have all heard the saying "kids can be cruel".  This is especially true for middle school-aged children.  They make fun of any little difference anyone displays and bully each other relentlessly.  So imagine being a nine-year-old boy with facial deformities who was previously homeschooled stepping out into the world of m...

What started out as Twilight fan fiction has become an international phenomenon that has taken on a life of its own.  In 2011, E.L. James' little BDSM story got published worldwide and the term "soccer mom porn" was born.  The tale of the shy college student, Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson; The Social ... Read More

Everyone knows the events of that fateful day in November 1963.  As President Kennedy's motorcade made its way down the street in Texas, shots rang out and numerous lives were changed forever.  Closely behind the President's car was Lyndon B.

He was just a little boy and his bear living in the countryside of England. Who knew the stories of his moments at play would eventually become the most beloved book of all time. Not only did they bring a country, and the world, back from the depressing post wartime but also they have endured for almost 100 years. Unfortunately, for the real Christ... Read More

For the last 30 years, Global Warming and climate change have been discussed and debated.  Nowadays, they are at the forefront of almost any political conversation.  But what if we could resolve all of that?  What if we could launch satellites into the atmosphere that could control and alter weather patterns making our current climat...

Take a coming of age/teenage angst movie, add a murder mystery, stir vigorously, throw it against the wall and see what sticks.  Throw in some the best, young talent Hollywood has to offer right now. Finally, give it some obscure name and you have the formula for November Criminals.  Starring Ansel Elgort (The Fault In Our Stars) and Chlo... Read More

For those who were not alive when Pearl Harbor was attacked, the biggest terrorist attack ever on United States soil happened on September 11, 2001.  The Taliban targeted major buildings in the Northeast setting off a wave of panic and patriotism across this country.  Of course, this also set our military into action and, unbeknownst to m...

With the success of 2014's The Lego Movie and 2017's The Lego Batman Movie, Warner Bros. decided to continue the franchise and created a film based on the popular Lego Ninjago toy line called, appropriately, The Lego Ninjago Movie. I must admit that after having enjoyed the first two films very much and finding them surprisingly funny and delightfu... Read More
