Bill Paxton tragically died a couple days ago at age 61. He is a guy who was in so many movies, and many times the most memorable parts of them.

We suspend our disbelief when we watch movies, that is what makes them so great. And with many years of watching movies we tend to know what is going to happen. But not a 4 year old. They don't get that...

Cast This: Lisa (Weird Science)

It’s been awhile since we looked at re-casting a movie that initially served no purpose other than to make us laugh, and for boys to find a purpose for the pause button.

Michael Biehn talks Aliens and Blanc-Biehn Productions (Comic Con 2016)

Michael Biehn is a legend to 80s and 90s kids like myself. ALIENS, THE TERMINATOR, THE ABYSS, TOMBSTONE, THE ROCK. I get to meet a lot of cool actors and actresses doing this gig, but it's not often you meet one who held such an integral role in your childhood; I can't tell you how many times I've heard Kyle Reese say, "Come with me if you want to live!" or Dwayne Hicks mutter, "Stay...
