The Jonas Brothers: The Concert Experience

You could literally see the writing on the wall. Once The Jonas Brothers made an appearance on the Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert movie, while they were already in the midst of their own rise to fame, it just stood to reason that the brothers would end up with their […]

Black Dynamite

Blaxploitation films aren’t something I’ve been into, ever. But after seeing the trailer for Black Dynamite, a film that was a 2009 Sundance Film Festival’s official selection, I couldn’t help but throw down on tickets when it came to the Los Angeles Film Festival. Boy, was I glad I did that! Black Dynamite is a […]

HBO Heats Up Its Programming With Shouting Fire: Stories From The Edge Of Free Speech

| June 29, 2009

My Take: A must see – an eye opening look at The First Amendment in the post 9/11 era HBO once again proves that its documentaries continue to remain provocative, honest and intelligent with tonight’s premier of Shouting Fire: Stories from the Edge of Free Speech.

THE SUMMER OF ORCI AND KURTZMAN

THE SUMMER OF ORCI AND KURTZMAN

| June 28, 2009

For Hollywood screenwriters and producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, it’s been quite the summer of cinematic extremes, beginning with the critically acclaimed Star Trek and concluding with the hugely successful but more critically divided Transformers sequel, Revenge of the Fallen. It was a circumspect Orci and Kurtzman who talked to Paul Fischer about these […]

Princess Protection Program

Princess Protection Program

| June 28, 2009

One of the most outstanding traditions at Disney is their princesses. They’ve had them going all the way back to Snow White up through The Little Mermaid.
