Documentary Waiting for ‘Superman’ Tells A Sad Story On American Education

I just finished watching Waiting for ‘Superman’.  I’d read good things about the documentary, but I had no idea that it would touch me the way that it did.  I have always believed that if you want to change the world the way to do it is through education.  Educated individuals don’t cause war, they don’t stay in poverty, go to jail or raise dysfunctional families at the levels of those that aren’t educated.  The problems of the financial meltdown, high unemployment rates and worldwide conflict is mostly the fault of uneducated ignorance.

Why Avatar Will Change the Way We Go To the Movies

I watched JCVD over the weekend and was really impressed by this movie.  Here is a movie star older and openly knowing that his best days are behind him, sorry Stallone but you just aren’t the...
