Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

Review: Sacramento's Monster Jam Triple Threat Series

Sacramento’s Monster Jam Review: 

Sandwiched in between massive Monster Trucks and flying shrapnel, we bared witness to mass destruction within the Sleep Train Arena. The Monster Jam tour stopped nearby
first-ever motorsports event appearance in Sacramento’s new downtown venue, Golden 1 Center, for three action-packed events from Friday, January 20th with avery impressive Monster Jam truck line-up. The Monster Jam Teams were Grave Digger® driven by Cole Venard, Max-D® driven by Jared Eichelberger, El Toro Loco® driven by Mark List, Monster Mutt® Dalmation* driven by Cynthia Gauthier, Zombie™ driven by Tyler Groth, New Earth AuthoritySM (N.E.A.) driven by Travis Groth, Scooby-Doo™ driven by rookie Myranda Cozad and Mohawk Warrior* driven by rookie Bryce Kenny.



I brought my two kids and their cousin, who loves Grave Digger, so he naturally took quite the liking to this iconic truck  All were thrilling to see jump over dirt ramps, high into the air and often crash, flip, blow out a tire or take on other forms of abuse.


Unlike any other Monster Jam event, the Monster Jam Triple Threat Series is the definitive test of endurance, versatility and driving skills that showcases these premiere athletes as they go head-to-head in seven unique endurance competitions driving three different vehicles: Monster Jam trucks, Monster Jam Speedsters and Monster Jam ATVs; ultimately battling for points in both racing and freestyle events that push themselves and their machines to the limit.

This was my first Monster Truck show and even though I was warned that it would be loud, I didn’t expect it to be louder than a heavy metal concert. It was! So if you are planning on going soon, be sure the little ones have well-working, noise-reducing headphones. Although at times the sound bordered on annoying, the thrilling truck-jumps and destruction overshadowed the eardrum abuse. While our ears suffered a bit, our eyes were rewarded. extreme Truck freestyling, fast spinning donuts, and wheelies kept us firmly planted in our seats.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
