I haven't been a fan of her new music, since she had strayed from the country scene, but I was willing to give it a try because it was rumored to actually be...

Dean Devlin’s “Geostorm” is perhaps one of the worst movies to ever grace the silver screen, and I am saying this in complete confidence. It's the sort of movie you can enjoy only if you turn your brain off. It is, in my opinion, god-awful, and if its 13 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes is any...
