The Flicker Box- Think Inside the Box
On the Reel
Starring Lauren Cohan, Rupert Evans, and one freaky doll
I went into this movie expecting some frights, laughs, and possibly needing to bury my kids’ stuffed animals afterwards. I did not expect it to be as good as it was. Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead) plays an American nanny who travels to a small English village looking for a fresh start. She takes an unusual job opportunity that grows increasingly strange. Will she get her fresh start or a dead end? Take a Friend to grab when you’re scared, but leave the kids at home. This movie is no Child’s Play.
Starring Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, J.K. Simmons, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogan, Lucy Liu, Angelina Jolie
Visually stunning and heartwarming, this is the perfect third movie for this series. Po is once again pushed past the limits he sets for himself on his journey to become the Dragon Warrior. Epic battles, family reunions, and prophecies fulfilled make this movie perfect for everyone in the family. So take the family with you to see this awesome animation.

On the Tablet
Starring Ravi Patel
This charming documentary is a look at love and marriage through traditional Indian and modern perspectives. We follow the Actor/Comedian Ravi Patel as he wrestles his emotions and exceptions in his search for love. This film gives us a sociological look into the lives of the children of immigrants and the pressures of tradition in a modern world. Watch this movie; it will fill you with love and hope!
This is a heart-wrenching look at the Wisconsin judicial system. We follow the true story of Steven Avery from 1985 to present. Through one miscarriage of justice to another, Avery suffers at the hands of the local and state officials. Watching filled me with the urge to go to law school to fight for the little guy. In a land where justice is blind, injustice should be intolerable.
