As summer vacation begins, you will find it tougher and tougher to deal with house loads of kids with too much energy and too little to do.

Was it Right For Prison Break to Finish So Tragically?

When Prison Break hit our screens in 2005 it blew the audience away, the show revolves around two brothers; one has been sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit, and the other, a genius, devises an elaborate plan to help his brother escape prison. The show went on to receive numerous awards with its gripping and realistic storyline.

When Did the Quality of Hollywood Films Start to Drop?

To build the number of solid DVD recommendations on my site, for several years now I’ve been watching roughly fifteen films a week- old and new, domestic and foreign. This process has yielded a broader appreciation of the scope of feature films beyond my pre-existing expertise, which was Hollywood’s Golden Age (1930-1960).

Four Controversial Showtime Series on Satellite TV

One of the great television trends of the last decade is the arrival of so many award-winning series on premium cable networks. Starting with the Sopranos on HBO and the many that followed in the show’s prize-grabbing footsteps, cable television is the place where top-notch actors star in original series. Right now, satellite TV viewers with the Showtime HD package can view these shows on a weekly basis. Here is a rundown of four of the most controversial series.

The Transformers 2 Character Mikaela Banes

The movie is marked with technology based on mechanical characters. We see an air of battle and combat in between Decepticons and Autobots.

Terminator Salvation

Terminator Salvation was exactly what I expected it to be. It met all of the expectations of a great cast and extensive budget. Christian Bale does an outstanding performance (as always) in the new Terminator flick. However, a cameo from the great Arnold Schwarzenegger was all but impressive. Inevitably the ending left you with the knowledge that the terminator series has not seen it’s last film, and many more are sure to come.

Smart Children’s Television Programming

Allowing your children to watch TV does not have to be a negative thing, although too much television time is indeed a problem. However, if screen time is limited and you have access to a good variety of quality children’s programming, you may in fact be giving your child a head start in terms of learning. Fortunately, in the age of digital and satellite TV, television broadcasters are facing new regulations that will benefit parents and their children by requiring additional children’s programming with the added-on channels that each independent broadcaster can maintain. Read on for suggestions of solid, recommended children’s shows.

The Unheralded Brilliance of Michael Mann on Satellite TV

Michael Mann may not be a household name around the world, but anywhere in Hollywood his name has come to mean pure gold. From his early days as an Executive Producer of the Miami Vice series to his production of Hancock starring Will Smith, Mann boasts a brilliant resume in the art of cinema. Many of his masterpieces are now showing on satellite TV movie packages.

The Curious World of David Lynch on Satellite TV

There is no greater compliment than to have your name become an adjective. For a ball player who smashes a towering home run, his drive is said to be “Ruthian.” For daring camera angles and bravura performances, a film can be said to be “Wellesian.” When someone uses the term “Lynchian” these days, well, that’s a little harder to pin down. So is the oeuvre of David Lynch, America’s dark genius. As you can see on the HD movie channels, Lynch’s body of work has everything from low-budget semi-horror (Eraserhead) to G-rated Disney gems (The Straight Story), but it’s everything in between that has made his reputation.
