Sex Education - Season 2 Review 'Better than the first season'

Enter For A Chance To Win Tickets To See GOTTI In Scottsdale

Enter For A Chance To Win Pass To See GOTTI on June 3rd at 6:00 PM in Scottsdale.

Vito and Michael Corleone, Tony Soprano, Tony Montana. Thanks to Hollywood, they were all considered to be some of the most powerful, influential and feared names in the world of organized crime. John Gotti (JOHN TRAVOLTA) was all that and more. Because he was real. Very real...



A kid raised on the streets of New York, the young Gotti found his way into the Gambino crime family, where he was taken under the wing of underboss Aniello Dellacroce (STACY KEACH). Utilizing a combination of cunning, guile, street smarts, and ruthless determination he quickly and effectively scaled the heights to position himself as a Capo in the organization, proving himself to be a lucrative earner.

Over the course of time, Gotti grew dissatisfied and resentful of the leadership the Gambino crew. His solution was simple. With trusted alliances in place, and strategic planning, Gotti had the boss ‘removed,’ and soon after, took the mantle of the head of the family.

An immensely profitable venture to begin with, the “families” flourished even further under Gotti’s leadership, becoming one of the most powerful criminal organizations in New York’s history.
While his other high-level associates stayed far from the limelight, Gotti courted the cameras, displaying a level of charm, charisma and style, which earned him the nickname of the “Dapper Don,” and the admiration of thousands of New Yorkers. When he eluded prosecution on three high- profile trials in a row, the media added another nickname, dubbing him the “Teflon Don.”
On a personal note, from the time they exchanged their marital vows, Victoria (KELLY PRESTON) had promised to take care of John and give their children a stable home life, and she asked but one thing from her husband: that he never allow any of their children to be exposed to their father’s “profession.” While Gotti had readily agreed, he would ultimately break that vow when John Jr. (SPENCER LOFRANCO) made the decision to walk away from the military academy he was attending. He asked for, and received the blessing of his father to join the family business. Much like his father had done, Junior quickly ascended the ranks and took his place as his father’s Capo.
Constantly under intense surveillance by the authorities, Gotti believed himself to be impervious as long as his crew adhered to the code of silence that he himself had always lived by. It was only when his right-hand man, Sammy “The Bull” Gravano (WILLIAM DeMAO), faced with multiple charges that would lead to certain conviction, decided to make a deal with the FBI, and testified against his former boss.

After years of avoiding prosecution, the weight of the evidence and the damning testimony finally broke through the teflon exterior, and John Gotti was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison.
Never wavering in his dedication to the syndicate throughout his life, it was from behind bars where Gotti would be faced with the hardest decision he would ever have to make. On a visit to the prison, the younger Gotti asked for his father’s blessing to leave the criminal empire. Gotti Sr. is forced to reexamine his life and priorities, and determine for the first time, if he can put the needs of his family over those of "The Family."

We All Played It. 'McMILLION$' Examines The $24 million-dollar McDonald’s Monopoly Game Fraud

This six-part documentary series examines the $24 million-dollar McDonald’s Monopoly game fraud, chasing the mysterious mastermind behind the scam and the intrepid and dedicated team of FBI agents on his trail. For over a decade, McDonald’s awarded prizes in its Monopoly promotional game tie-in, unaware that the winning tickets for prizes worth $25,000 and up were being stolen and sold to undeserving winners. An anonymous tip to the FBI in 2001 sets off a far-reaching chain of events that will come to include dogged and unorthodox investigative work, undercover sting operations and dirty dealings by ex-cons and mafia mobsters. This fast-paced documentary series unfolds with suspense as it unravels the twisted threads of the fast-food fraud and reveals the real-life characters who got away with stealing from Ronald McDonald and the FBI agents who pursued them.



The series comes from Unrealistic Ideas, the non-scripted production company launched by Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, and A…

Ruben Fleischer To Direct Uncharted

Here we go again... The seemingly poisoned chalice that is the directing assignment on Sony's adaptation of the Uncharted is now likely to end up in the hands of Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer, who has landed at the top of the studio's wishlist.

The Uncharted series, should you be unaware, is a globe-trotting, loot-hunting set of Playstation games, blending Indiana Jones-style adventuring with several parts Tomb Raider and just a dash of National Treasure. Its hero is Nathan Drake (voiced by Nolan North), who undertakes action-packed trips to the likes of El Dorado, Shambala and the Iram of the Pillars, quipping many a quip and shooting many a henchman along the way.

A film based on the game has become a revolving door of filmmakers and actors, with Bumblebee's Travis Knight the most recent director to vacate the seat as the studio aims to have the movie shooting before current star Tom Holland swings off to appear in the next Spider-Man film later this year.
