“Enola Holmes” Review by Alex Blake

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it is the fact that I am a sucker for anything crime related. I don’t need to know anything else…if it includes a crime you have my attention.

Unfortunately, it was another one of those visits to the AMC in Rockford that left a lot to be desired. I’m not bashing that particular theater. In fact, I saw so … Continue reading “B&W Cinema Spotlight: “Nebraska” by Nate Blake
