Rob’s Restaurant Reviews: The Sale Barn in Sedalia

I found a true hidden gem of the dining scene here in Sedalia. It's not fancy, but man, is it good. Serving what has to be the freshest meat you can possibly find, the cafeteria at the Sale Barn in Sedalia cooked one of the best burgers I've ever had in my life.

Captain Phillips review
Sony Pictures

‘Captain Phillips’ Review

With piracy drama 'Captain Phillips,' Paul Greengrass ('Bloody Sunday,' 'United 93') has defended his ground as the go-to man for tragic, reality-based pressure-cooker films. The dude really knows how to get your palms sweaty, even when you kinda-sorta know how things are going to end up. Note to self: don't take your cargo ship through the Somali Basin if you don't have to.

Greengrass is also the director of the best two 'Bourne' movies ('Supremacy' and 'Ultimatum') and just as Matt Damon glided through those films as the steely, mixed-martial killing machine, Tom Hanks' center-seat performance here is a master class in keeping it cool.

World's Smallest Woman

Have You Met “The World’s Smallest Woman” Gloria Rhoden?

Many of you are probably wondering who Glorida Rhoden is. The funny thing is, I was wondering the same thing until today. Gloria has performed as a singer, first specializing in Reggae and later in Gospel. You won't see her on the Pepsi Grandstand or the Bud Stage. In fact, she isn't performing at all. So where is Gloria at during the State Fair?

$10 Wins a Large: What Happened to Carnival Games? [OPINION]

I was able to get out the the fair and experience everything it had to offer this year. I decided to take my four year-old nephew out and let him ride some rides and play some carnival games, the things I looked forward to as a kid. Little did I know, carnival games have changed!

Wheel Inn Guberburger

Rob’s Restaurant Reviews: The Wheel Inn and the Guberburger

When I moved to town, one of the first thing I learned was that I had to have a Guberburger from the Wheel Inn Drive In. It's a grilled steakburger topped with peanut butter and a Sedalia tradition.

White House Down review
Sony Pictures

‘White House Down’ Review

'White House Down' has the disadvantage of being the second 'Die Hard'-in-the-White-House movie of 2013 after 'Olympus Has Fallen,' and the advantage of being superior to its predecessor in every conceivable way. It's better directed, better written, and better acted. The action is better, with more impressive special effects; the production design is better, with a much more convincing replica of the White House; the camerawork is better; with clear, lucid images. Where 'Olympus Has Fallen' was grim and stern, 'White House Down' actually embraces the silliness of its premise. It's more exciting and more faithful to the 'Die Hard' formula. This is still basically a shameless ripoff popcorn movie, but it's a shameless ripoff popcorn movie popped to near-perfection.

Hangover 3 review
Warner Bros.

‘Hangover 3′ Review

'The Hangover' giveth and 'The Hangover' taketh away.

The first 'Hangover' made Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and especially Zach Galifianakis stars, and it elevated Todd Phillips from middling Hollywood director to name-brand comic auteur. But in the film industry, success that surprising and enormous demands more success; the beast must be fed. But as 'The Hangover Part II' and especially the new 'Hangover Part III' prove, it is very hard to make a good sequel to a truly original idea. 'Part II' went the rehash route, recycling the plot of the first movie so brazenly you almost had to admire its chutzpah. 'Part III' finally breaks with the formula a little (SPOILER ALERT: there is no hangover), but still doesn't produce anything even remotely worthy of the first film.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Review

J.J. Abrams is going to make the greatest 'Star Wars' movie in history.

With 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' Abrams' follow up to the 2009 'Star Trek' reboot (or continuation of the series, if you are Spock Prime) he has solidified his position as a master of propulsive, visceral filmmaking. Dude knows where to put the camera, when the music should swell, when the characters should zing each another or when they should project pathos to the cheap seats. The 'Star Wars' films are mostly gut and little brains and, unfortunately, that is what we have here. The movie still works as an exemplary thrill ride – I laughed, I cried, I cheered – but woe be to anyone who gets caught in a conversation afterwards trying to explain the overly complicated and, at times, silly plot. If you expect something a little sharper out of 'Star Trek' you may come away with some mixed emotions.
