America has 250 years of consistent foreign policy

The majority of Americans, furious over the Assad regime using poison gas on his own Syrian people, expressed approval of President Trump's attack on the Syrian airfield that launched the gas attack. When one sees such horrors, such as when American soldi

A sense of worthiness

Worthiness. Where does it come from? Self-esteem, feeling valuable … beliefs we acquire, not qualities that are doled out to us before we’re born. Every child comes into the world ready to be loved and cared for. And then we arrive at a conclusion about o

Corny, action-packed, 'F8' understands what it is

This is a wash-rinse-repeat heist movie that has some heart, solid action and a dash of humor. Don’t expect anything else and you’ll be fine.

My most anticipated summer 2017 movies

Here are my seven most anticipated summer films, starting next month and ending during the last week of August.

There are some moments that are similar to “Chronicle,” Josh Trank’s 2012 film about three teenagers that stumble upon super powers, but there are also moments when director Dean Israelite’s “Power Rangers” feels like a Saturday cartoon.

Movie Review: All flash, no substance: 'Kong: Skull Island' underwhelming

Movie Review: 'Moonlight' lives up to lofty expectations

“Moonlight,” which is based off Tarell Alvin McCraney’s play “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue,” does not come without flaws but I think that’s the purpose of this film.

Movie Review: 'Rings':First you watch it. Then you die… of boredom

Director F. Javier Gutiérrez’s “Rings” is a disappointing disaster.
