Think Frodo toting a massive bag of candy. Add in a huge King Kandy Candy Castle and you have Candy Land the movie, really a Lord of the Rings-type epic set in a world of candy, according to writer Jonathan Aibel. While the Candy Land and Lord of the Rings connection is quite a stretch [...]

A new statue went up outside of Rome's Termini train station last Wednesday in honor of Pope John Paul II. That is, if you could tell it's supposed to be the [...]
