    Growing up, my cousin always told me this story of him and my dad going to see “Bad Boys II” in the theater. I was just a toddler at the time, so I don’t remember any of this, but apparently, the two of them left to get away from everybody and my dad...

    I feel like I have to get something off my chest before I talk about this movie. I’ve only just watched the original “Zombieland” for the first time this month. I know, here I am pontificating about how much I like movies and am a movie buff, and I...

    There never seems to be enough time in the day. Just as soon as you think that you have a moment to relax, a whole laundry list of issues pop-up. The dishes need done, that paper needs finished, the toilet is clogged again and floor needs swept. For many...
