Billy Elliot: The Musical

Today, I went to the most recent Fathom Event at my local movie theater.  This special event was a performance of the Tony-winning play called Billy Elliot:  The Musical Live.  What a tremendous show!  It was an amazing afternoon.Young actor Elliot Hanna plays the title role in the musical, though he has not been the only Billy Elliot over the years.  In fact, the conclusion of the show included all of the Billy Elliots from over the years involved in a dramatic dance routine.  Hanna was…See More

Goldmine!

I truly enjoyed Big Hero 6.It was a fun, entertaining, beautifully animated origin story of a super hero team featuring some original characters.  These characters were based loosely on a group of characters from Marvel Comics.  In the comics, mutant and Uncanny Avenger member Sunfire and villain Silver Samurai were involved. There is actually very little that would connect the two versions together.  In the comic,Baymax can transform into a dragon.  In the movie, he is a peaceful, health care…See More

Top Ten Documentaries

Tomorrow I plan on attending the new documentary America.  It tells the story of what might have happened to the world if America was not around.  A giant "What If" for the comic book fans out there.  I saw that it was labeled as a documentary, which in turn got me thinking:  what was my favorite documentaries of all…
