High School… some of the best and worst years of a young person's life has been the backdrop for so many movies throughout history.  Time and time again we see the stereotypical characters – the jocks, the popular girls, the nerds, the druggies, etc. all exploring and experimenting as they learn valuable life lessons and gain pers...

Arguably, one of the most highly anticipated films of this year is the ending of the highest-grossing horror film of all time…It.  People have been waiting for It Chapter Two since they flocked to theaters two years ago to watch Pennywise the clown (Bill Skarsgard; Deadpool 2) terrorize the small town of Derry.  I suppose the "...

In 1976 Sylvester Stallone became a household name after he wrote and starred as the lead character in the ultimate underdog story, Rocky.  Riding on the success of the film and its sequel, he took on his next challenge as a Vietnam Veteran in the action movie, First Blood.  The film was well received and spawned three more sequels. ...

Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics have had a long-standing collaboration that has produced numerous animated feature films.  For twenty-plus years they have brought beloved superheroes and evil villains together on screen for all our enjoyment.

Imagine what literature would have been like if J.R.R. Tolkien had had a different childhood?  Imagine what if the creative mind that was his had not had the experiences he was exposed to in his early life?  Would we have gotten Middle Earth? Arda? Made up languages?  Luckily, we will never have to find out as the influences that sha... Read More

In 1993 DC Comics opened an offshoot branch called Vertigo.  It was used to publish the more graphic stories that couldn't be published under the Comics Code Authority.  It allowed DC Comics to offer readers more graphic violence, nudity, drug use, and profanity.  One of these stories revolved around mob wives and was called The Kitc...

Every culture has its folklore and tall tales.  Some are sweet and build on traditions that bring a community together while others are bedtime stories.  Still, others are scary and used to keep children on their best behavior.  One of the latter is the Mexican story known as La Llorona or the weeping woman.  For centuries child...
