    I love 'Hercules' and Dwayne Johnson ... and I don't care who knows it!

    "A TRUE hero isn't measured by the size of his strength, but by the size of his heart." -- Zeus, from Disney's "Hercules" I HAVE A LOT of friends who are scandalized that I wrote here about how much I loved the new IMAX film "Hercules." Well, I decided...
