Movie of the Week

Chicken Run


Critics Consensus:

Chicken Run has all the charm of Nick Park’s Wallace & Gromit, and something for everybody. The voice acting is fabulous, the slapstick is brilliant, and the action sequences are spectacular..

Word of the  Week




Part of Speech:

To deeply and persistently irritate. To remain inflamed and worsen, to fester.
