It’s the 1930’s, and the mountains of Vermont are a steep and rugged terrain. No one would think to build a school there, as the conditions aren’t anywhere close to ideal. No one, that is, except for a billionaire by the name of Albert Ellingham. He had a dream to build a school where the students...

Remakes are a tricky business, always have been and always will.

It has a lot of adjectives: ugly, inefficient, disgraceful, a waste of time and space on my phone, unnecessary, a true example of a horrible app update and last but not least, it is a failure.
