Why is it movies about heists always make it seem so easy as if anyone could rob a bank or armored car?  It promotes a false sense of hope as well thought out plans seem to go off without a hitch (well not always but you know what I mean).  It's not surprising then that four College kids decided, planned and executed a heist to steal ...

Twenty-five years ago we were taken to an Island and transported back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the earth.  Jurassic Park was an immediate box office hit which spawned two sequels.  In 2015 the series got a reboot when Jurassic World came to theaters and once again was a big hit.  Naturally the success of the film made it impo...

When one thinks of iconic actor Robert De Niro one instantly thinks of a dramatic leading man in films like Taxi Driver or Raging Bull.  One doesn't immediately gravitate towards raunchy comedies in the vain of Neighbors or Animal House.  However, that is exactly what we get when this versatile actor shows us another side of himself as Di...

In the 1980's and 1990's comedy was king on television and the thirty-minute sitcom show was all the rage.  The Cosby Show, Roseanne, Home Improvement, etc. spent years making us laugh on a weekly basis.  Will and Grace came in on the end of this phenomenon and spent eight years entertaining audiences.  The cast and crew had ...

High school is a time of change and growth for so many young people.  Ask most adults and they will tell you it is the best and worst time of their young lives. No longer a child but not yet an adult, it can be confusing and strange experience for anyone.  Imagine how much harder it must be when you can't be your true, authentic self and ... Read More

Claire Foy is certainly not a new face on the scene but with Netflix's hit series, The Crown, she has become a much more recognizable one. Her portrayal as Queen Elizabeth II has received much acclaim, and she even earned a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama, as well as Screen Actors Guild Award...

The year was 1960 and the "rat pack"…Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc. starred in Ocean's 11 about a group of guys who attempt to rob five Las Vegas Casinos in one night.  Forty-one years later the film got a reboot (titled Ocean's Eleven –not 11) and starred Brad Pitt (Mr. & Mrs. Smith) and Geo...

If one wanted to make a movie from a successful Young Adult novel there is a plethora of source material to choose from.  One such option is author David Levithan's Every Day. The novel, a New York Times Best Seller, tells the story of A (numerous actors throughout the film) a teenager who wakes up every day in a different body.  Because ... Read More

It's no secret that Walt Disney had a passion for flying.  He had his own private jets and tried to incorporate flying into his many of his animated films. Of course, this enthusiasm naturally lent itself to telling the story of J. M. Barrie's classic character, Peter Pan.  As a boy living in Neverland and refusing to grow up, Pet... Read More

Survival...Perseverance…Strength.  How much can we as human beings handle when pushed to our limits?  How strong is our will to live?  For Tami Oldham (Shailene Woodley; Divergent Series)  those questions would be answered in one of the most terrifying events as she struggled to live at sea after a category four hurricane...
