Grab the popcorn and your favorite candy! Greg Russell joined Jason Carr to discuss three new movies coming out Friday.

First, the new World War II movie, Midway, starring a slew of stars including Dennis Quaid, Nick Jonas and This is Us star Mandy Moore. The movie follows real-life soldiers who fought in the historical Battle of Midway. Greg said is was an action-packed movie and he was impressed with how it was executed. He gave it four out of five reels.

Next movie was Doctor Sleep, starring Ewan McGregor. This film highlights an adult Dan Torrence, who is still battling with the events that he and his mother endured in The Shining. He meets a child who has the same extraordinary abilities he has and together they try to fight through the dark unknown. Greg said the movie, although 2.5 hours long, is one that will pull you in and fans of The Shining will enjoy it. Greg gave it four out of five reels.

Finally, Let It Snow, a Netflix film starring The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Kiernan Shipka. It takes place in a Midwest town that is snowed in, and a group of teenagers who make the most of the situation and life in general. Greg said it is a typical teen movie that highlights the angst and romances. He gave this movie three out of five reels.
