December 17, 2019

I really can’t describe this movie in any other way but unneeded. Rambo: Last Blood, the fifth movie in the Rambo franchise, is hopefully its final movie. The first Rambo film, Rambo: First Blood, was released in 1982 to relatively successful critical acclaim, paving the way for today’s modern action movie...

Shelby Jenkins, Staff Writer

March 21, 2019

I am a movie crier. There’s no sugar coating it. I cried my way through Midnight Sun, Collateral Beauty, and even Instant Family with Mark Wahlberg jerked a few tears. So, of course, a movie about two teenagers in that fall in love but can’t be together because of a disease was bound to leave me...

Shelby Jenkins, Staff Writer

I like Kevin Hart. I like Nicole Kidman. I even enjoy watching Bryan Cranston, but turns out I did not like all these things together. The downside to The Upside was just about everything.
