What makes this film unique is the subject, namely […] The post TOWER – Review appeared first on We Are Movie…

Many celebrities who oppose Donald Trump say they won’t even watch Donald Trump’s inauguration — but former “View” host Sherri Shepherd isn’t one of them. “I’m very scared, being a black woman and having a black boy.

I'm not sure whether I necessarily believe that the upcoming RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER really will be the last installment of the surprisingly long-lived RESIDENT EVIL franchise, but hopefully it offers up a suitably epic conclusion for the fans of the series.

In 2016, for-hire helicopters from companies Uber and Blade spared talent and executives the hassle of hitting the highway — with 15-minute private flights from the Salt Lake City airport to a private field just south o…
