Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the 8th movie installment in the Star Wars series. The main characters are Jen Orso and E2-13. Jen is a spy who is trying to steal plans for the Death Star. She is the hero of the movie and works for the rebels. E2-13 is a robot that has been reprogrammed to work for the rebels. The movie is action packed with lots of mystery. You really need to watch the former movies, like Star Wars: The New Hope in order to understand the plot. Watch this trailer and you’ll want to see the movie (https://youtu.be/Wji-BZ0 oCwg). You might think that the rebels will be captured by the enemy and will be enslaved or sent to jail. Well, we won’t give away the ending. You will just have to get to the theater and watch the movie to see what happens. May the force be with you!

The Grudge, a Toby Wilkins film, is a really scary movie. Jake, who nearly lost his mind after battling a vicious Japanese curse, is living in a mental hospital. Dr. Sullivan is assigned to determine if his wild stories are true. A trip to Jake's apartment convinces her that they are, and Sullivan soon discovers that the vengeful spirits, Toshio and Kayako, have latched onto a new family. Only the mysterious Naoko knows how to stop them once and for all. It’s a really good movie. However, it contains lots of graphic content and is for a mature audience. Will you be dared to watch it?

Halloween is a time of year for scary TV episodes. The show I’m going to talk about could be scary, funny or emotional. The show is Gravity Falls.
Thoughts: When you start the show, it won’t feel that scary. Well, maybe a little, but mostly just weird and funny. But, that is what the show is going for. That is why they made the main villain of the show look like a demonic Dorito.
Basis: During the summer, twins (Dipper and Mable) get dropped off at their Great Uncle (Grunkle) Stan’s place in Gravity Falls, Oregon. There they find out that their grunkle is a con artist, and the town is very unusual. At Grunkle Stan’s shop they find Soos and Wendy, two good friends that will help them. Dipper is sent out to put up signs, and finds a secret, a special journal with an unknown author. Dipper, Mabel, Soos, and Wendy start their big adventure to find the author, while Stan is trying to keep the twins away from the weirdness by denying everything. During this, they fight zombies, ghosts and video game characters, while making both friends and enemies. During this adventure they find out facts about Gravity Falls, and who their grunkle really is. This 2 season T.V. show is said to be the show that will fix Disney Channel's decline in good content and has gotten an 8.5 on Rotten Tomatoes.
This is a fun show that anyone can get into and it feels like a well-made mystery/ adventure. It’s a show that not everyone will like, but you have to watch a couple of episodes before you make up your mind.
