Tony Nathan becomes a part of a new era of humanity in 1973 when the Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, Alabama becomes a multi-racial institution for the very first time. The move allows this remarkably gifted African-American aspiring football player to join the Woodlawn Colonels, led by an open-minded and welcoming coach named Tandy Gerelds. However, Gerelds has got his work cut out; the government may be changing to make the world a more equal place, but there's still a lot of racism throughout the city which is rife with riots. The animosity doesn't stop at the school gates and Gerelds has the task of trying to diffuse the racially motivated hostilities within his team. And so, he enlists the help of Christian revivalist Hank to bring some peace to the game and hopefully help the community to learn to love each other again.

Matthew is a preacher of the Lord who finds himself questioning faith when he is confronted by a street preacher carrying a large wooden cross.

Meanwhile, a couple mourn the untimely loss of their daughter, a woman finds herself on the street with her child, a man miraculously recovers from a coma in his hospital bed while a doctor questions whether it should be God who gets the credit or him. Then there's two partners in crime, who find themselves making the wrong decisions and paying for it. All of these people need guidance from God, and it's Matthew who has to be the one to lead them to it. Will the power of the cross, ultimately, save them all?

Those kids from The Goonies, where are they now?
You’ve probably already heard that The Goonies sequel is in the works after director Richard Donner let the cat out of the bag earlier in the week. Donner has said he hopes the original cast will come back for one more Goonies adventure and, well, we do too. The problem is that it’s been 30 years since the original movie and our adventurers are, well, all grown up. So before we anticpate a Goonies reunion, we’ve got to ask, The Goonies, where are they now?

The Goonies is set for a sequel, but will the original cast reunite?
Its been a long, nearly thirty year wait for fans of 1985’s The Goonies, but now it seems a sequel is in the works with director Richard Donner, and what’s more, he wants to reunited the original cast. Donner made the announcement in a rather unspectacular fashion whilst he was filmed by gossip site TMZ signing autographs. Donner was asked if he ever planned to do another comic book movie and he replied, "if you call Goonies a comic book. We’re doing a sequel.” Then, when asked if any of the stars from the 1985 movie were going to return he said "hopefully all of them".
Goonies director Richard Donner confirmed a sequel to TMZ
Rumors of a Goonies sequel have been floating around for the best part of a decade. Back in 2004 the rumors started but it then seemed Warner Brothers studio just wasn’t interested in giving The Goonies another outing. Next the rumors resurfaced in 2009, but this time things seemed a lot more likely, with talk of Richard Donner being on board. Once again though nothing happened and Goonies fans became used to constant talk of sequels and remakes, with original cast members divided on whether or not the gang would ever hit the big screen again. Sean Astin always seemed positive, but Corey Feldman was less than certain, at one point saying, "NO! There is no Goonies 2! I'm sorry but it's just not gonna happen,” though he did also add, “...course now that I've said that, they'll do it." Director Richard Donner seemed to be the most in favor of a sequel saying it was a “definite thing” back in 2010.

Susan Sarandon and Sam Shepard are the quirky and dysfunctional parents of eight brothers (played by Robert Sean Leonard, Sean Astin, etc). Sarandon is always packing and repacking and threatening to move out of the house with humorous melodrama while Shepard has constant headaches and moments of psychosomatic blindness that are caused by stress. One of the brothers is in the military and the film takes place during the time of the Gulf War. All of the family converges from various parts of the globe in order to be together, in wait for news of their brother/son, who is missing.

Unless you're a "Lord of the Rings" superfan, you'd better brush up on "Fellowship of the Ring" before seeing the sequel "The Two Towers," because director Peter Jackson just jumps right in to the middle of the story without much in the way of introductions or explanations.
He assumes you know who Hobbits Merry and Pippin are and why they've been abducted by the Uruk-Hai, the beastly minions of unseen supernatural villain Sauron (you know all about them, right?). He assumes you recall where "Fellowship" left off with human warrior Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Elfin archer Legolas (Orlando Bloom), and why they're trying to rescue Merry and Pippin.
He also assumes you know that hero Hobbits Frodo and Sam (Elijah Wood and Sean Austin) are still trying to reach the kingdom of Mordor, where they are to cast the dangerously omnipotent Ring into the volcanic fires of Mount Doom, thus keeping it out of the hands Sauron, who would use its dark psychic powers to lay waste to the world.

the Two Towers Review
In the entire three hours of the audacious, transporting, spectacularly cinematic first "Lord of the Rings" installment, there are only two very brief moments that don't come across as being 100-percent a part of the mystical, dark and magical realm of Middle Earth.
These moments are not because of bad performances (there aren't any), negligent directing or special effects gaffes. In fact, from the digitally dialed-down stature of the actors playing hobbits to the frightfully demonic hoards of living-dead orcs (minions of the supernaturally evil antagonist), the effects are seamless.
These moments of doubt are merely scenes that take place in such plain locations (e.g. a non-descript river bed) that they seem far too familiar and Earthly in a movie of underground troll cities, ominous mountains called Doom, idyllic ancient forest hamlets of immortal elves, and hobbit's homes burrowed into impossibly green hillsides.

Laws are in place and there is broad agreement that drinking and driving causes fatalities. Not true with gun lobby. https://t.co/Vh9WUcq44x
It's not about disliking the NRA, it's understanding that it is an existential threat to domestic tranquility. https://t.co/BmaVxmOIvw
This is a racial issue. This is a law enforcement issue. And you'd have 2B willfully ignorant not to acknowledge that this is a gun issue.
Apparently not. https://t.co/xNiOt4aTc5
By who? Trained to satisfy a legal requirement to obtain the license? Probably not a federal requirement. NRA? https://t.co/6ZRqJn5PM9
I want to hear the NRA comment on it. Was race an issue for the officer? I'd guess (pure supposition) that it was. https://t.co/HE6mGITtVN
