A major challenge for the Mickey Mouse company and J.J. Abrams was to revitalize the force of the George Lucas franchise and to reinvigorate the passion of the next generation. In this respect, The Force Awakens is a success, and I never had a doubt that it would beat every box office record.

I admire Bond's fearlessness; he believes totally in himself. He stays cool, calm and collected while the bomb ticks mercilessly into single-digit seconds. He doesn't break a sweat, much less his concentration. Bond is adaptable and flexible in situations.
Rumours have been swirling about a black James Bond for years. Mike Le of RaceBending.com believes people who think of themselves as "post-racial" will find a way to twist this theatrical racial reversal, arguing "with this particular event, you're no longer allowed to complain about racism."

James Bond's licence to kill isn't expiring any time soon, but at 50 years old, it's certainly ripe for a retrospective. And that's just what's happening at Vancouver's Vancity Theatre, with movies, m...
One could make the case the original Kirk (William Shatner) would regard the current Kirk (Chris Pine) with some skepticism. And as much as I suspect I'll enjoy the new film, I suspect I'll miss the old Kirk, and what he said about our definition of "hero."

I spent the afternoon in New York last week with long distance friend, mom, and actress Denise Richards. We chatted over tea and scones, and then I decided to ask her some questions and find out what it's like to be a single, working mom in the spotlight. Denise was candid, honest and sincere about her life. I give you, our interview...
James Bond may be Britain's most famous spy, but he's also one of their most seasoned travellers. The fictional character from Sir Ian Fleming's novels — now made widely famous by a slew of movies — c...
