WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. – There is a pretty solid outline for the typical Disney princess movie: the princess goes on a quest with her quirky animal sidekick, who may or may not be able to speak, and overcomes some obstacle with the help of a man she picks up along the way, a.k.a. the Disney […]

The action-packed film Doctor Strange begins in London with an epic battle between Kaecilius, played by Mads Mikkelsen, and The Ancient One, played by Tilda Swinton.

What this film has to offer is a lot deeper than just any film that can be churned right out of Hollywood. Rarely are the films released nowadays able to capture true human emotion and dilemmas […]

WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ– Often times it is perceived that the most significant part of a story is it’s beginning and it’s ending. Why spend time focusing on the details and explanations when we can just skip to the ending, which will evidently tell us all we need to know? Why look at life as […]
