"Minions" is one of the worst animated feature films I've seen in recent memory.

This shouldn't be surprising since "Minions" is the spawn of "Despicable Me" (2010) and "Despicable Me 2" (2013).

The goal of the Minions, after all, is "to serve the most despicable master they can find." Now isn't that a nice anti-social lesson to give the young 'uns?

"Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is the sleeper hit of the summer of 2015.

Regardless of its box office tally, the movie is the critical hit . It's an astounding piece of cinema: bold concept, audacious style and compelling content.

"Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" won the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award in the United States Dramatic Competition at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

It also won awards at the Nantucket and Seattle film festivals. The film was acquired for $12 million, the largest amount in Sundance history.

Lee Greenwood, whose hit "God Bless the USA" has been voted the most recognizable patriotic song in America, will perform Friday at Penn's Peak. The country music superstar could easily talk about the accomplishments in his life, but this high-energy entertainer prefers to continue writing and recording with the same passion and integrity that has always fueled his stellar career.
