'Let's Be Cops' If you're looking for laughs, that's what you get
I had the opportunity to watch 'Let's Be Cops' last week with a friend. I was in a foul mood and hoped this film would change that. The film sure did deliver. I cannot remember a film which made me laugh so hard as 'Let's Be Cops' did. The premise of the film is a bit unbelievable...

For many Wadena residents, the emotional scars from the June 2010 tornado are still raw and real. Though I didn't live here during the tornado, it has affected my family. So it was with trepidation that I watched "Into the Storm" with my niece and nephew. This film is a really...

God’s Not Dead movie review
Jake Heppner, Southbrook Baptist Church God's Not Dead was one of the most enjoyable and inspirational Christian movies my family has ever seen. I'm no credible critic of lighting, script or acting, but if you see this movie you'll appreciate recognizable actors, quality filming...

'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' fun family film
Last week, I took my daughter, niece and nephew to see 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman.' I thought the kids would enjoy it, even if I didn't. I was therefore surprised at how much I enjoyed this fun family film. The backstory of the film is that Mr. Peabody, a dog, was never adopted from...

Gravity well worth the price of admission
Gravity is getting lots of Oscar buzz and it is easy to see why. I watched Gravity in 3D and didn’t have a lot of high hopes for this film. Remember Castaway? That movie won a lot of awards and I was completely bored with it. Not so with Gravity. There are similarities be-tween...
