Space Cowboys features a masterclass performance in acting from four of the hardest working actors of their generation. Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and James Garner have quite the filmography with numerous accolades combined. It was only a matter of time before they starred in a movie together. In this instance, it’s as four aging astronauts who never made it into space. Suddenly, their put to the test when they agree to repair…"Space Cowboys: An Acting Masterclass"

It has been over a quarter century since Babe was released August 1995 but the film remains one of the year’s best pictures. The basic gist of the film is a pig wants to be a sheepdog. Of course, this is naturally impossible but that doesn’t stop Babe (Christine Cavanaugh) from learning with the farm’s resident border collies, Rex (Hugo Weaving) and Fly (Miriam Margolyes). It’s not always easy and there are times when the…"Babe: The Little Pig That Could"
Star Trek: First Contact remains the best of the four Star Trek films starring The Next Generation cast just over 25 years later. I have to be honest here: I grew up a Star Wars fan and didn’t really watch any Star Trek series while growing up. My dad did but it just wasn’t my thing. My first experience with anything Star Trek was seeing the reboot in June 2009. Following that, it wasn’t until…"Star Trek: First Contact: The Best Next Generation Film"

Secretariat is just the film about horse racing to get people in the right mood for the annual running of the Kentucky Derby. If you want a horse racing film, you certainly could not do wrong with the Oscar-nominated Seabiscuit. Seabiscuit is without a doubt the better of the two films but we’re not here to talk about that film today. No, we’re here to discuss the one set during the three Triple Crown races.…"Secretariat Gets You In The Kentucky Derby Mood"
Emperor adds insight to John Brown’s raid on Harper’s Fairy by shining a light on Shields Green, a hero that most Americans probably didn’t even learn about in American history books. When learning about the years before the Civil War, history books teach us about John Brown’s (James Cromwell) raid. What they don’t do is teach us about Shields “Emperor” Green (Dayo Okeniyi). In some ways, I feel like 2020 has been such an educational…"Emperor Shines A Light On A Forgotten Hero"
Three years after the Indominus Rex caused chaos, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom raises the stakes with moral questions of ethical behavior. Bookended by Dr. Ian Malcolm in what amounts to an under-five minute cameo, the film is about what to do with these animals after geneticists have brought them back to life. Leave it to Malcolm to give his piece of mind while testifying in front of a U.S. Senate committee–using dialogue that, for the…"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Raises The Stakes"
