Back in 1994 a little known writer/director named Kevin Smith (Mallrats) exploded onto the Hollywood scene with his feature film debut, Clerks.  The movie won two awards at the Cannes Film Festival and became a cult classic that spawned a sequel (and a third installment on the way), a television series and a spin-off film starring Jay (Jason M...

It's hard to believe that it was 25 years ago when we were first introduced to Mike Lowrey (Will Smith; Men in Black) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence; Martin), two Miami police detectives that didn't generally do things "by the book".  Lowrey was the wild guy who drove a Porsche and lived in a spacious apartment overlooking the w...

t is hard to believe that Beverly Hills Cop was released thirty-five years ago. Audiences fell in love with Eddie Murphy (Coming to America) as Axel Foley, a Detroit cop who has a total disregard for the rules. The foul-mouthed undercover detective offered his infectious laugh and outrageous character voices to audiences who ate it up. Three years ... Read More

What do you get when you put award-winning director, Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) together with box office bank actor, Will Smith (Bad Boys), incredible special effect using the most advanced technology available, and a mediocre script? The answer is 2019's, Gemini Man.  In a world of cookie-cutter and recycled plots, the film ... Read More

In June of 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated setting off the First World War.  One of the biggest and bloodiest wars ever, it saw the world divided into two sides with fighting occurring through much of Europe. As the war raged on military and civilian casualties numbered in the millions.  Director Sam Mendes (Skyfall) penne... Read More

In 2015 Robert Eggers amazed audiences with his feature film directorial debut, The Witch.  Eggers' talent for storytelling and filmmaking belied his lack of experience in writing and helming a movie.  The result was remarkable as The Witch was nominated for 67 awards and won another 43 from organizations the world over. When his sophomor... Read More

Judy Garland (Renee Zellweger; Bridget Jones' Diary) seemed to have a charmed life.  As a teenager, she was signed to a film deal with MGM Studios.  She acted, danced and sang her way into America's heart playing Esther Smith in Meet Me in St. Louis, Susan Bradley in Harvey's Girls and Hannah Brown in Easter Parade.  Perhaps her most...

Sylvester Stallone first came to the attention of filmmakers in 1976 when he portrayed the title character, Rocky Balboa, in the movie Rocky.  He played Rocky as a tough, introspective guy whose perseverance lands him on the biggest stage in the boxing world.  Six years later, in 1982, he brought another character to life in First Blood. ...

As soon as women entered the workforce in large quantities during WWII, there were issues.  In the 1980s and '90s, sexual harassment of females in the workplace was common and rarely discussed, especially in the world of entertainment.   Victims were afraid to come forward fearing retribution or termination.  Twenty-five plus years l...
