Sometimes a movie comes along that takes everyone by surprise and becomes a huge box office hit.  Twenty years ago, one of these films was Universal Studios'/DreamWorks' animated hit, Shrek.  With an all-star cast of comedic vocal talent, the movie was funny and sweet and so successful that it went on to have three sequels (with a...

Actor Liam Neeson (Schindler's List) has a particular set of skills…He can scowl with the best of them, he can expertly handle a firearm, and he can threaten a bad guy with a gravelly voice and sound menacing.  He has made a career of, more often than not, portraying these types of characters and generally does a good job of it. So, whe... Read More

Have you ever known someone who always exaggerates when they tell a story? The details become more and more grandiose every time and the stories take on a life of their own.  What if the fanciful narrator happens to be your very own father who has spent your entire life embarrassing you with these tall tales – even taking center stage on...

In the United States, there is a whole group of retired people who buy RVs and travel around the country to "see the sights".   Some may call them "wanderers".  Conversely, there are those who live out of their cars and vans, traveling the country moving from one seasonal job to another.  They tend to be labeled a...

I'm not sure about younger generations, but when someone says the words, "The Greatest Show on Earth" those of a certain age automatically think of Ringling Bros.-Barnum & Bailey Circus.  The traveling show, which was created in 1919 after the merger of two smaller traveling circuses, boasted everything from trapeze artists and c...

How often does a filmmaker get to completely remake one of their films thirty-three years after the original version came out?  The answer is never.  If a remake is planned, it generally includes a new, updated version of the original film with a different director and soundtrack (to utilize more modern songs) in hopes of appealing to you...

How well do we really know the people who are closest to us?  What deep, dark secrets dwell inside locked doors somewhere in the back recesses of a person's mind?  What if you discovered one of your parents was gay? Or if one of your siblings had a drinking problem? Or what if your husband, that you had known for seventeen years was r... Read More

Could someone please explain to me the desire to take every video game and make it into a movie (generally a whole franchise)?  How about explaining Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat) and Milla Jovovich's (Kuffs) obsession with being the people behind these types of movies?  I get it…The Resident Evil films were well-received (... Read More
