The LEGO Ninjago Movie

Review by Christy Lemire

If you don't know the show, you'll have no connection to this setting. Having said that, if you're a fan of the show, you'll be struck by how little the movie has in common with it.

Gaga: Five Foot Two Poster

Gaga: Five Foot Two

The Force Poster

The Force

Indivisible

Review by Nick Allen
