150 years later

A presentation of the Navajo Treaty of 1868 was given at the El Morro Theatre, July 20, presented by the Miss Navajo Council, Inc., the Octavia Fellin Public Library, and support from numerous community volunteers.

A short documentary was shown on the Treaty of 1868, establishing the “Navajo Indian Reservation.” In 1868, the Navajo became the only native nation to use a treaty to escape removal and return to their home.

This treaty was written on paper taken from an army ledger book where article two is the crucial portion that defines the Navajo reservation.

According to Navajo history, the Navajo defended their land against Mexican and New Mexican slave traders...

Rating: ««« out of ««««
Running Time: 148 minutes

Now six movies into this action franchise, actor Tom Cruise appears to show no signs of slowing down. Mission: Impossible - Fallout is the latest chapter and one that offers the performer the opportunity to hang from a helicopter in flight as well as trade fisticuffs with varied assassins and killers.

Honestly, this one’s a bit too long for its own good and the dialogue is fairly dry and exposition-filled, but the action is so impressive that one can still enjoy it as popcorn fun.

Following the events of the previous film, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his ludicrously named Impossible Missions Force (Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames) are...

Unfriended: Dark Web is exciting as an online chat room – filled with people you don’t know

Running Time: 88 minutes

The second of three sequels arriving this week at theaters is Unfriended: Dark Web, a follow-up to a 2014 horror picture that honestly, I had forgotten that I had actually seen and reviewed. As one might have guessed, that film didn’t make much of an impression on me.

The latest tries to throw in a new wrinkle or two, ultimately playing the series as more like an anthology than a direct follow-up. In the end, it may intrigue kids, but more than likely won’t do much for anyone out of their teens.

Like the original, the entire story plays out over a computer monitor. Matias (Colin Woodell) is excited to set up a used laptop that...
