Ellen’s Greatest Night Of Giveaways – The Most Feel-Good Event Of The Year

Hopefully you all know by now that Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most generous, kindhearted, amazing people in show business. She deliberately leads by example, believing that in a world where there is so much negativity, it’s important to lift people up. “People are more alike than they are different and if we show each other compassion, the world can be a better place,” she says. “Plus, I think the kindness you put out into the world comes back to you like a boomerang, and there’s no fear of it hitting you in the face.” When Ellen came to […]

New to On Demand and DVD: Don’t Let Go

We’ve all lost someone, and most of us have begged for the chance to change the result. In the film Don’t Let Go, one man gets that opportunity. Detective Jack Radcliff (David Oyelowo) gets a shocking call from his niece Ashley (Storm Reid). It’s shocking not because she’s calling — Ashley often called her Uncle Jack to discuss much of life, since her father had been involved with the wrong crowd. The relationship built between Jack and Ashley over the years had been a foundational constant in each of their lives. Uncle Jack saved his niece from anything he could […]

The Preppy Murder: Death In Central Park

“Before O.J. Simpson, the Preppy Killer — that was the trial of the century.” Former print and TV reporter Steve Dunleavy offered this quote when he was interviewed for the new AMC/SundanceTV docuseries The Preppy Murder: Death in Central Park. Dunleavy was probably correct, as the 1986 killing of 18-year-old Jennifer Levin at the hands of 19-year-old Robert Chambers in New York City’s Central Park was a highly sensationalized case — the press nicknamed Chambers “the Preppy Killer.” But as this intriguing five-part, three-night series shows, it is worth looking back on the “Preppy Murder” not for prurient curiosity about […]
