A Brief History On June 26, 2019, the third installment of the Annabelle haunted doll movie franchise opens across the United States.  We had the opportunity to preview the film last week, and as fans of the first 2 films, we were anxiously awaiting this third movie in the Annabelle portion of the Conjuring movie universe.  This time, instead of the doll itself being possessed by a malevolent spirit, the doll is a portal for other malevolent spirits.

A Brief History On March 9, 2007, the American period action film titled 300 was released in both conventional and IMAX theaters in the United States of America.  The movie is a fictionalized retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae (480 BC) fought between an alliance of Greek city-states, led by King Leonidas of Sparta (r. 489–480 BC), and the Persian Empire of Xerxes I (r. 486–465 BC) during the second Persian invasion of Greece.  As with any part of classic history, certain elements of historical Sparta are fabricated and romanticized.  From older television series to enormous hits like the film 300, the…

A Brief History On June 7, 2019, the latest and last in the X-Men series of movies from 20th Century Fox, Dark Phoenix, made its debut across the country.  Although we did not get a chance for a pre-screening, we saw it on our own dime in RealD 30-D.  Based on the Marvel X-Men comic series and the graphic novel, Dark Phoenix, the film has just about nothing to do with the graphic novel!  While many other movie fans have complained about this disconnect with the written story, even though I read the graphic novel in preparation to seeing the…
