Rating: «« out of ««««

Running Time: 121 minutes

I’m not sure that anyone was pining for a sequel to the action pictures Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen, but audiences are getting a third one. This reviewer was especially uncomfortable with another follow-up, especially considering how much I detested the...

Rating: ««« out of ««««

Running Time: 95 minutes

Rich people are awful. This is the assertion made by the film Ready or Not, and based upon the events depicted, it’s a pretty accurate portrait. It’s a gory, over-the-top horror effort with its tongue planted firmly in cheek that is reminiscent of titles like 2011’s You’re Next. Just like the previous movie, the feature attempts to mix thrills, laughs and buckets of blood in equal measure. Thankfully, much of it works and the end result is an amusing little genre flick.

Gallup hotel now part of  Hollywood history

The Lost Dutchman Chapter No. 5917 of the Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus, a fraternal organization dedicated to preserving the heritage of the American West, dedicated a plaque to the El Rancho Hotel, Aug. 10.  The location, at 1000 E. Hwy. 66, is now a historical site.

The El Rancho Hotel was constructed in 1936 for R.E. Griffith, brother of filmmaker D.W. Griffith, and served as a base camp for movie crews and actors. That site and its proximity to western landscapes, made it an ideal place to make movies.

When Lois Lane was trapped on the road as an earthquake struck in the 1978 epic Superman, it was filmed on...
