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

If you could possibly create a biologically perfect child, would you? If there were so many advances in technology that a couple could rule out heart defects, major diseases, etc., and choose eye color, hair color, intelligence, and even the baby's gender, do you think that technology should be utilized?  What if it wasn't 100% foolproof? &nbs...

In the past few years, the country has been flooded with stories from individuals who have been sexually harassed and/or assaulted.  The #metoo movement has taken over social media and celebrities along with the average American have been sharing their stories with much less fear of victim shaming.  However, this country wasn't always...

Animation's history can be traced back to the old stone age 3.3 million years ago when cave dwellers would depict people and animals in motion in drawings on cave walls.  In the 1600s, shadow play and the magic lantern would spark the imaginations of young and old alike, but it would be another 200 years before the invention of the stroboscopi...

Hypothetically, what if you found yourself on a small, twin-engine plane without a pilot.  Would you know what to do?  Would you be able to fly the plane?  What if you only had a few, informal lessons? Would it be enough?  That is exactly the dilemma Sara (Allison Williams; Get Out) is faced with in the Mikael Marcimain (Call G... Read More

What if you watched a movie about poor African Americans living in New York?  What if that film depicted growing racial tensions between black people and Italian or Korean shop owners in the neighborhood?  What if, after a confrontation between the shop owners and the locals, a young black man was killed by the police which started a riot...
