'Fate of the Furious" reaches new heights in action
I love the "The Fast and Furious" movie series. With the stunts, drama and eye candy (Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, anyone?), what's not to love? I admit to being nervous to see the latest installment after watching a preview. I wasn't sure I was ready to see the hero of the previous...

Pitch Perfect, which opened in 2012, was a surprise hit. Freshman Beca joins the Barden Bellas a capella group and learns how to be friends with girls. It was with great anticipation that I went to see "Pitch Perfect 2." In the sequel, Beca and her fellow Bellas are nearing graduation...

"Into the Storm" will leave you breathless
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...

'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...

"Saving Mr. Banks" charmingly nostalgic
I went to see "Saving Mr. Banks" Sunday afternoon. Mary Poppins is one of my favorite childhood movies, so I had big expectations for this film. The film is based on the true story of how the story of Mary Poppins went from children's books to the big screen. Award-winning Emma...

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...
