Ahhh, February. The month in which folks in relationships remind me how blissfully happy they are on Instagram, while my mom reminds me that there's still someone special out there for me by once again being the only one to send me a Valentine.
Best Picture of the Year about Queen Anne, not Queen band

"Glass" finds the extraordinary in the ordinary
I'm not sure there will be a weirder studio movie this year than M. Night Shyamalan's "Glass."

Friday screening is free for BendFilm members
