Worst Fictional US President EVER!!!

There have been a lot of fictional presidents over the years on television and the movies.  Some have been extremely competent and strong while others have been weak or obsessed with power.  Whether the president appears in a political thriller, an action/adventure film or a comedy, the role as the "leader of the free…

Super Bowl Commercial is not on your side

For the last few years, I have been blogging a list of the best Super Bowl commercials shown during the big game.  However, this year, most of the Super Bowl commercials were unremarkable (which is astounding considering 30 second spot during the game cost 4.5 million dollars).  The only…

CM Punk and the World of Pro Wrestling

In January 2014, the night after the Royal Rumble Pay Per View, the wrestling world was turned upside down by one of its top stars.  CM Punk.  He approached WWE head Vince McMahaon and, in that meeting, wound up leaving the company, never to be seen in a WWE ring again.

Speculation was rampant about the reasons behind Punk's departure, and the dirt sheets had a field day.  Some claimed that Punk left because he was unhappy with the direction of his character, some…

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…
