When one thinks of the greatest comedic trios, the obvious first group that pops into most people's minds is The Three Stooges.  Larry, Moe, and Curly had great timing and chemistry and made millions of people laugh for years.  Next might be Murray, Ramos, and Aykroyd in the blockbuster film, Ghostbusters.  More recently, Cooper, Hel...

Reincarnation…rebirth…transmigration…whatever you choose to label it, the idea of dying and coming back to life has been debated for thousands of years.  For some, it is gibberish and nonsense.  For others, it is a philosophical/religious way of life.  For Heinrich Treadway (Dylan O'Brien; American Assassin) it i...

Marvel Studios always seem to have a plan when it comes to the MCU and all the characters in it. After Avengers: Endgame they moved into a whole new phase, including more movies and limited series television shows.  These shows highlight some of the characters who never really got their moments onscreen.  Premiering on Disney+, the f...

When Lara Croft: Tomb Raider became a major motion picture back in 2001, fans of the video game were eager to head to the theater to watch one of their favorite characters truly come to life.  Though panned by critics, the movie eventually made two hundred and seventy-five million dollars worldwide, almost doubling its production budget. ...

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
