Peter Jackson's groundbreaking WWI documentary is required viewing for history and cinema buffs alike.
Taking old black and white footage and adding color to it is nothing particularly new. Some documentaries have already done so to footage from World War II and other historical events, making it appear as it was mostly seen through the eyes of those that experienced it. Peter Jackson’s latest effort, They Shall Not Grow Old, does the same thing for World War I but to a much different, more gut-wrenching effect than any other documentary on the subject. The war footage used is 100 years old, meaning that the frame rate makes it look like each individual person is

The second of the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan-starring films is a delightful and witty romantic comedy.
A few weeks ago, my girlfriend and I were watching a movie when a trailer for Fathom Events’ presentation of Sleepless in Seattle came on. She smiled and stated how much she loved the movie. I ashamedly admitted that I had never seen it. To be honest, when I was growing up, I didn’t find myself getting attached to romantic comedies that much - or even romantic dramas. I think I had watched some here and there, but I always dismissed them as cheesy, sentimental goo. As I’ve gotten older, though, I’ve come to appreciate a lot of them more

Two screenings, 30 years apart, and still a great ride.
On August 8, 1986, the original Transformers lit up the silver screen for the first time in The Transformers: The Movie. On September 27, 2018 -- just 32 years, 1 month, 20 days later -- it screened once more in theaters across the country courtesy of Fathom Events. I had the privilege of seeing it both in 1986 and a few days ago (and about a hundred times in between on VHS and DVD). I'm told there were five other "Transformers" movies made in the interim. Pfft. They've got nothing on this flick, with some of the first prominent cartoon
