While there are an incredible number of channels to watch on television, I find myself "channel surfing, " clicking through my remote, searching for something that I want to watch. When I was growing up in the New York area, I was fortunate because we had Channels 2 (CBS), 4 (NBC), 5 (WNEW), 7 (ABC), 9 (WOR), 11 (WPIX) and 13 (PBS). Later, when UHF channels were added, we also had 21 (PBS for Long Island) and 31 (another PBS channel- WNYC) as well as 47 (a Spanish language station).
Just when I was thinking "There ain't no good DVDs to see anymore" we got back-to-back homers in the bottom of the ninth. One about corruption in NYC (payola, who woulda knowed?) coulda been about sanitation engineerin' (that's garbage collectin') I s'pose, but it was about dem crooks in da train parts biz 'long wit' der unda-da-table gov'ment types.
Moon Soleil (pronounced "So-lay" and means "sun" in French) began acting at the age of two and at age eight, she became known worldwide as the title character in the "Punky Brewster" (1984) TV series. At the age of 22 she wrote, directed, and starred in the movie Wild Horses (1998). She then appeared in numerous movies and television shows including, The Girls Room, which turned out to be one of her best performances and consequently caused her autographs to become more desirable.
Corey Haim broke into the Film industry in 1984 as a young child in the hit movie Firstborn (1984). The following year he starred in the movies A Time to Live (1985), Stephen Kings Silver Bullet (1985), and Lucas (1986), in which he starred alongside Charlie Sheen showed his ability, but was not a big hit. In 1987 he had a breakthrough when he played one of the major roles in Joel Schumacher's The Lost Boys (1987), but his output during the nineties onwards was disappointing.
Zombies are monsters which are hungry for brains. They are the walking deads who are usually the victims of a fictional pandemic illness causing the dead to to reanimate. They become popular with the modern horror fiction usually with the scenarios describing a breakdown of civilization occurring when most of the population become flesh-eating zombies.
The Beginning Of A Movie Genre Universal Studios is well known for their Classic Monster Films from the 1930's through the 1950's. These films not only made a huge impact on the movie industry in general, but spawned a whole a new category of motion picture and inspired a chain reaction in the Horror genre. The film to set off the trend was the original 1931 Dracula starring Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula.
Food TV has come a long ways from the just the old cooking shows. Now we have competitions, reality, travel, and even business food shows. Even if you are not that into food television there is something in this genre that will tickle you fancy. My all time favorite show is Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. The reason I love this show so much is because Gordan Ramsay is an absolute brilliant business man.
My remote control has a button on it that makes it easy to turn closed captioning on and off. I found this out by pressing every key on the remote to see what would happen. It was a slow day. Now I watch a lot of programs with closed captioning on, although sometimes this means that I am actually reading the program rather than watching it. It takes a certain amount of discipline to listen to the TV while you are also reading off of it.
So here we go, the best 10 movies about 'magic' of 'all time'. That's a tall order and will of course become a list that will be challenged by many. What I have tried to do is collate a list of movies that feature films which have magical themes or very obvious magical references in them. Of course the rash of Harry Potter films, the excellent Lord of the Rings trilogy and even Star Wars could be included.
The January 17, 1941-headline rang out, "Carole Lombard, 21 Others Die - Mother of Star with Her on Ill-fated Airliner." It was only six weeks since the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the actress and wife of Clark Gable had been in her home state of Indiana to sell U.S. Savings Bonds. Today Carole Lombard's fame and talent are nearly overlooked. Many believe if it wasn't for her highly publicized affair and marriage to Clark Gable her name wouldn't register at all.
