Paramount Presents, the film giant's attempt to bring back classic movies that had significantly contributed to the culture of their time, has already offered a number of fabulous and noteworthy films.  From Elvis Presley (Jailhouse Rock) portraying a waiter/would-be singer in King Creole to groups of teens representing their peers in Pret...

I'm sure when Jane Austen wrote Emma over 200 years ago, she never imagined the main character would utter the words, "As if" in order to show her disdain for an idea or a person.  However, when a modern-day version of the story was released in theaters back in 1995, that is exactly what the main character, Cher (Alicia Silversto...

Oh my love, my darling, I've hungered for your touch…If you are over the age of forty, chances are you associate those lyrics with one particular scene in a 1990 film called Ghost.  The love scene between Sam (Patrick Swayze; Dirty Dancing) and his wife Molly (Demi Moore; G.I. Jane) while sitting at a pottery wheel was loving, sensual, ... Read More

World War II is considered to be the deadliest wars in history with over 70 million fatalities during the six years of fighting.  The details are still taught in classrooms throughout the world and a plethora of books and movies have been made telling the story from various viewpoints.  In 1955 British author C. S. Forester, wrote a novel... Read More

Here's thought maybe Hollywood should try… take a critically acclaimed, graphic novel and turn it into a major motion picture.  Oh wait, they have done that already, time and time again. So, what makes Netflix think it would be a good idea to bring The Old Guard to their streaming service?  Are they just hopping on the bandwago... Read More

In 2004 biographer and historian Ron Chernow (Washington: A Life) wrote the book Alexander Hamilton about one of this country's founding fathers and the first Secretary of the Treasury.  While on vacation from his musical In the Heights, Lin-Manuel Miranda read the book and, after the first few chapters, decided he wanted to make the story...

"David Foster is one of the greatest producers of all time without question".  High praise especially when it is coming out of the mouth of former Columbia Records President Clive Davis.  Of course, Foster's 47 Grammy nominations and 16 wins also speak for themselves.  The numbers certainly don't lie, neither does the long ...

FFFRREEEEDDDOOOOMMMMM!!!!!!!  That one word in an iconic scene made Braveheart a memorable movie.  Released in 1995, the film earned director and star Mel Gibson (the Lethal Weapon series) two academy awards.  The story is based on fictionalized tales of William Wallis, a Scottish patriot, and leader who defended his country against ...
