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...

At first glance, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” looks just like any other superhero film. The superhero is reluctantly drawn into battle to fight off the bad guys and save the world. But what if the bad guy is . . . us? In the second Captain America film, based on...

'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...
