<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/heroes1.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT>Evolution is the process of change in all forms of life over generations. In <i>Heroes</i>, this process manifests itself in a random group of humans who start to develop superhuman powers. Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) has the ability to manipulate the spacetime continuum, Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) is unbreakable, and Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg) can read people's minds. These are just a few of the characters we meet in season one as they battle the evil Sylar (Zachary Quinto), a serial killer with a unique superpower. Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) is the only man capable of stopping Sylar's murderous plans as he struggles to control his own superpowers.

<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/miamivice.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT>The title <i>Miami Vice</i> conjures up memories of the hit TV series from the 1980s, but this 2006 reincarnation is similar in name only. Its slow start develops into a more fast-action pace when a confidential informant contacts Crocket (Colin Farrell) and Tubbs (Jamie Fox) and lets them know that his cover was blown from "the inside." Forced to go undercover as drug and weapons runners, the pair attempt to get close enough to the cartel leader in order to bring him down.

<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/hannahmontana.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT>In 2007, teen sensation Miley Cyrus performed as herself and her alter ego, Hannah Montana, in the sold-out concert tour. Scalpers were selling individual tickets for over $1000 apiece, leaving thousands of kids out in the cold until Disney got the bright idea of filming the concert for an exclusive, limited-run theatrical 3D presentation. To my surprise, the theatrical concert raked in $31 million its first weekend and collected a cool $65 million in total.

<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/redoctober.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT>Jack Ryan is the central character in 12 of Tom Clancy's novels about the CIA analyst. When the debut book, <i>The Hunt for Red October</i>, hit the silver screen in 1990, a relatively unknown actor, Alec Baldwin, starred as Ryan in what was to become the first of many adaptations from the successful literary series. But a combination of factors&#151;a new studio head at Paramount, some bad press about Baldwin and Kim Basinger on the set of <i>Marrying Man</i>, and the availability of superstar Harrison Ford, led to the replacement of Baldwin in <i>Patriot Games</i> and <i>Clear and Present Danger</i> with Ford in the lead role.
