Having successfully relaunched The X-Files, creator Chris Carter has revealed that he would like to return to another of his former shows in the supernatural drama Millennium, although he’s yet to officially approach Fox about the idea.
“I have ideas how Millennium might come back but, it’s really, once again, it’s a Fox show,” said Carter during a press interview for The X-Files (via AICN). “They own it. It’s really up to them whether or not they would ever want to go down that road.”
Millennium starred Lance Henriksen as former FBI agent Frank Black, who has the ability to see inside the minds of criminals. The series premiered in 1996 but was cancelled after three seasons due to dwindling ratings. Henriksen would then reprise the role of a crossover with The X-Files in 1999. »

The film that heralded the start of the ninja craze in the West, Enter the Ninja was one of many martial arts action films made by the uber-prolific producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus after they purchased Cannon Films in the late 70s.
Directed by Golan, Enter the Ninja tells the story of Cole (Franco Nero), a Westerner who is trained in the art of ninjitsu in Japan.

The three Ninja films produced by 1980’s low-budget kings Cannon Films that like many of the studio’s films have become cult hits since their initial release.
“Before Menahem, I didn’t and I bet that millions of people didn’t know the word ‘Ninja'” said Boaz Davidson in Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films, 2015’s superb documentary on the crazy life and times of The Cannon Group, led by Israeli cousins Menahem Golan and Yorum Globus. The duo has bought Cannon Films in 1979 and went on to make their mark on American cinema and pop – culture through the 1980’s before going bust in 1994. They introduced us to any wild films, »

I was gutted by the news shared by playwright/producer Jeff Cohen as he and I walked our dogs in Riverside Park early this morning. The Thin White Duke was no more. I struggled to understand the implications of losing a music hero. Rushing home, resigned to reality, I watched his two new videos, the one above and the ablum's title track which I featured on this website last week, both from his 28th studio album, ★(Blackstar), released this past week on January 8th, 2016, the date of Bowie's 69th birthday. As I watched "Lazarus" again, it all made sense.
