There’s a lot that goes into the making of a good romance movie, and frankly, romantic films seem to be sparse in the past couple of years. But A Star is Born, released October 5, 2018, hit a lot of sweet spots for audiences across the country. Produced by, directed by, and starring Bradley Cooper, th...

As I walked through a double door that read “pull” but really needed to be pushed, I couldn’t wait to see what kind of cliental was lurking on the other side. Could it be truckers, ex-cons, current cons, rural Americans, young entrepreneurs, the confused elderly that thought they were at the M...
