Rian Johnson’s ‘Poker Face’ attempts to bring back a classic formula
By Janie Walenda

By: Laci Strouse
As I walked into the movie theatre, I had no idea what to expect. I had no prior knowledge of what this movie would be about. I saw there was a new Christian film out and immediately purchased tickets. After watching the film, I had no regrets.
