Hi there,

I'm Frank Ruggiero, editor of The Mountain Times. You might remember me from Episodes 106 and 418 of "Sqrambled Scuares," as well as from my classic articles, "Boone adopts bond order for $25 million toward new water intake" and "Got MLK?" I'm also that guy who gets paid to watch movies and write about them, but don't hold it against me. I sat through "Couples Retreat," after all. Join me each week as I review the latest from Hollywood and beyond. It'll be fun, worthwhile, and it just might save you $9.75. I can't vouch for the popcorn, though.

See you at the movies,
Frank Ruggiero.

    ‘Purge: Anarchy’ a C-grade B-movie

    Sequel is a marked improvement on the first, but that’s not saying much.
