"McFarland, USA" is another standard Disney movie

"McFarland, USA," is a textbook Disney movie with a typical plot line, as we've seen before with "The Mighty Ducks," "Remember the Titans" and "Invincible." The plot brings nothing surprising or extraordinary to the table, not to mention that Kevin Costner is yet again playing the "clueless mentor searching for answers" role previously seen in "Field of Dreams" and "Bull Durham."

Who's into SuperWhoLock?

Fans of Supernatural, Doctor Who and Sherlock, popularly known as SuperWhoLock fans, are rising both in number and devotion, overtaking social media with their influence. But SuperWhoLock is an complex community.

Don’t walk in the PARCC

Common Core and PARCC will undermine education at Blair, Montgomery County and states across the U.S. In order to prevent such an educational fiasco, Maryland should drop out of the PARCC consortium.

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" takes the throne

"Kingsman" somehow manages to pull off the trickiest of effects, remaining lighthearted and fun while staying true to the classic structure of espionage films.
