Cinematically, it was ahead of its time, but it’s time we finally just admit it: everything else was mediocre, at best. Fro...

“And Then There Were None” was one of the first books that I read for school and actually enjoyed. The way Agatha Christie writes entraps the reader in her world.

This year, we have received and will receive sequels to some of our favorite movies of all time, from “Star Wars: Episode VII” to “Jurassic World.” We eagerly and somewhat nervously anticipate these sequels, afraid that they could suck. I think it’s safe to say that no sequel this year will ...
