I’m sure everyone has heard those “Back in my day …” stories from our parents a time or two. This show is all about these stories, but this is one that doesn’t involve parents talking about their old-fashioned technology, phones with a cord or how they only had three channels on their TV. ...

I’ve made it a mission of mine to watch the classic movies from before I was born because they shaped the movie industry into what it is today. Movies such as, “Star Wars,” “Rocky,” “The Breakfast Club,” “Jaws,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” and last but not least, “Jurassic Park...

When I was younger, I wasn’t super into history, but there were always some parts that made me want to learn more. This is one of those cases. “The People v. O.J. Simpson” is a drama about what happened when O.J. was on trial for killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman. Thi...

As a child at heart, I’m all for watching a Disney movie. Even though I’m in high school, nothing can top a Disney classic. “Finding Dory” has become a new Disney movie on my list. The sequel to “Finding Nemo” follows the adventure to find Dory. The movie starts off with Dory as a young ...

If you know anything about me, you should know that I love dramatic TV shows; about 80 percent of what I watch is drama. This is one I recently added to the collection and I don’t regret it one bit. “Scandal” follows Olivia Pope. She was the former Communications Director for the White House a...

If you're looking for a good comedy, I say to go check out “Baby Daddy.” As weird as it might sound by the title, it's honestly a great TV show. “Baby Daddy” follows the life of this man named Ben, his brother Danny and their friend named Tucker. While moving into an apartment, a surprise c...

I'm sure most of you have heard of “Forrest Gump” or the restaurant chain that is based off the movie, “Bubba Gump Shrimp Company.” Most likely, you’ve heard the famous line of “Run, Forrest, run,” from the movie. It's a classic movie that I waited until eighth grade to watch for the f...

Before you go into a food coma for this five day break we have for Thanksgiving, why not spend some of it watching Netflix? In honor of Shark Week being every week here at the Valley, and it being the final official week, I recommend the 1970s classic, “Jaws” to honor our rockin’ landsharks on the...

Even though Halloween is over, scary movies and shows remain popular year-round. I’m not usually a fan of scary shows, but this is one I particularly like because it’s more of a mystery than science fiction. “Stranger Things” takes place in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, in 1983. It all...
