The French seem to have a knack for creating long-standing endurance races.  Since 1903 the 21 day Tour de France has brought cycling teams from all over the world to compete and since 1923 the 24 hours of Le Mans has had car manufacturers and drivers vying for a win. In 1964 Ford motor company threw its hat into the ring trying to increase it... Read More

Middle school…the hormones, the bullying, the embarrassing situations that lurk behind every corner.  Walking that fine line between childhood and young adult can be difficult to navigate, which is why there have been numerous films highlighting the trials and tribulations of that tumultuous time in one's life.  Of course, none...

The fall season… the nights get cooler, the leaves change color, retail stores start gearing up for the holiday shopping frenzy and movie theaters start getting a variety of films to play.  Of course, there are the Oscar-worthy set plus the action films intent on getting teenage boys out of the house and finally the family friend v...

The 1980s and early 1990s saw a growth in action films in the United States; a trend that seems to have continued well into recent years.  Stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Rambo) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard) were becoming household names.  Car chases, gunfights, and hand to hand combat were the ...

If you are a fan of dark, disturbing and twisted stories then you undoubtedly are a fan of author Stephen King.  With best-selling books like Pet Sematary, Carrie, It, Cujo, Misery, etc. he has etched his permanent place in literary society for generations to come.  With so many of his novels having been adapted into movies, he has also c...

In the 1980s the United States was engrossed in a couple of wars – The Cold War and the War on Drugs.  Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator) was also one of the biggest action stars in movies.  It was only natural to combine those two ideas to make a film starring "Arnie"  and that is exactly what TriStar Pictures did in...

In 1932 a film about the rise and fall of a Chicago gangster named Tony (Paul Muni).  In 1983 a remake written by Oliver Stone (Natural Born Killers) and directed by Brian De Palma (The Untouchables) made its way to theaters winning critics' and audiences' praises.  It has become an iconic film that consistently shows up on "greatest...
