Fantastic Four 2015 – Anything but “Marvel”ous

      (Photo: businessinsiders.com) ====================== Over the years, as Hollywood has aged and creativity has faded, there has been a spate of remakes of old movies.   There is an innate danger in any remake, the obvious comparison to the original.  By and large, very few remakes have been touted as major successes.   The first remake that always pops into my head is King Kong, which has been remade several times.   The original, starring Faye Wray, is ...

YELLOW JOURNALISM / HOW DAVID DALEIDEN MANAGED TO DUPE THE AMERICAN PUBLIC

Winston and his friends were whispering their ideas privately while the “thought police” tuned in. The year was 1984, but in a split second, a fourth dimensional wormhole brought us to the year 2015. Big Brother was everywhere. There was no more secrecy, no more privacy.

And George Orwell was looking down from ...

The Events of Ferguson Mo. – The Impact on Americans

Upon receiving the featured photo in an e-mail, I could not help myself from having a very strong  reaction, one of outrage.  However, after giving the matter some thought, I came to the conclusion that it was highly conceivable for individuals from varied backgrounds to have very different and very unique reactions to this picture.  Elitist white people could simply laugh and see the obvious fact that Michael Brown was far from a saint and that he had no one but himself to blame for wha...

Movie Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1

     From Movie Trailer, Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen When kids are growing up, parents often ask them “what do you want to be when you grow up?  Parents are so proud when a child responds “doctor, lawyer, engineer, etc.”.  I take a slightly different perspective on this issue.     When I ask this question to my kids, the only response that I am anticipating is “Jennifer Lawrence’s agent”! Last weekend, my daughter, one of her friends, and I entered the incredible dystopian world ...
