Padre Pio is an Italian Saint who is known for his miracles. The Catholic Church knew him as Saint Pio of Pietrelcina. This Capuchin Priest was known for his care of the ill and suffering. His shrine in San Giovanni Rotondo became a pilgrimage site for devotees. In many chapels associated with him, Some menthol oil was being sold for its healing properties. I don’t think FDA approves them, but many of his believers buy those bottled oils. They believe it works, but they are just menthol oil for me. Highly devoted Catholics, though, really believe these relic oils work, but I am skeptical.

Big George Foreman is a Biopic of one of Boxing’s Greatest Legends. Most younger people know him for selling those awesome nonstick electric grills in infomercials. Those grills sold 100 million units and it is one of the longest-running infomercial products. That is a piece of evidence of how trusted he is as a household name.
Pam and Tommy is a biographical mini-series starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan. It is based on the messy short-lived marriage between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. Pamela Anderson was the biggest television star back in the 90s but a Video put her in a scandal. This Canadian bombshell got her fame from the Hit tv show, Baywatch. Tommy Lee was the drummer of the band Motley Crue. The transformation of James and Stand as Pam and Tommy is uncanny. I don’t see any traces of Cinderella and Winter Soldier anymore. Both actors transformed into the younger versions of the people they portray. Kudos to the make-up and styling department of this Hulu original.
