November 3, 2017

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...

“Flatliners” Review: Do Not Resuscitate or Do Not Reboot?

Natalie Pearson, Staff Reporter
