Edward Snowden, the NSA Whistleblower who leaked details of a National Security Agency program called “PRISM,” is no hero, but should be pardoned.

The Academy Awards are three days away, and it’s time for predictions. Here’s this blogger’s hypothesis: Lincoln will win ‘Best Picture’ at the Academy Awards.

So, with the help of SAG and...

Social TV, the basic process of using your smartphone, laptop, or tablet to make comments on a TV show you happen to be watching at the time, is not something that’s going away any time soon.

Skyfall is an amazing work of a film, let alone a great James Bond movie – arguably it’s the best Bond film ever. The best, in this blogger’s view, since Goldfinger. What makes Skyfall so good is that, first, it’s the tightest Bond film I’ve ever seen.   There’s very little wasted scene space.  No place that makes me wonder ‘why...

Skyfall the 23rd James Bond movie to be released and the third featuring Daniel Craig in the lead roll, has a trailer that seems to point to a new direction for the series; it’s the first without an obvious James Bond Music reference.
