Queen Of Katwe (Blu-ray Review)

Glowingly reviewed by critics, but never finding an audience at the box office, Disney’s Queen of Katwe is making its way to Blu-ray.  Based on the vibrant true story of a young girl (Madina Nalwanga) from the streets of Uganda whose world changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a […]

‘Queen Of Katwe’ Makes Plenty Of Right Moves (Movie Review)

There are a variety of reasons to praise the latest Disney sports flick, Queen of Katwe.

The film is set […]

Free SELMA Screenings for Students Expands

Given the high regard for SELMA (myself included), I would like to remain happier that people are seeing it, rather than continuing to expound energy on how ridiculous various controversies may be or what awards it wont win.  With that in mind, hearing the news of more cities joining the movement to bring the film to […]

‘A Most Violent Year,’ A Most Wonderful Film (Movie Review)

There is something I find fascinating about a man struggling not to be a criminal.  This was something played to near-perfection by Al Pacino in The Godfather films, but it is a character type that we have seen a lot in the crime and gangster films before and since those first two ‘masterpieces.’  In regards […]

‘Selma’ Is Incredible, Inspiring, and Important (Movie Review)

I have been told I have something of a knack for impressions.  Not particularly in how I look or even sound, but in finding the cadence in whatever humorous display I may be attempting to put on.  David Oyelowo does not really look like Martin Luther King, Jr., but he does more than just get […]

Lee Daniels’ The Butler (Blu-ray Review)

The Butler tells the story of a White House butler who served eight American presidents over three decades. The film traces the dramatic changes that swept American society during this time, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affected this man’s life and family. Forest Whitaker stars as the butler […]

‘Lee Daniels’ The Butler’ Serves Some Great Material Along With Its Cheese (Movie Review)

The Butler is the kind of movie I would normally dread watching, were I be one to base everything I see off of movie trailers or just be a very cynical person in general.  Fortunately, I am not very cynical and am happy to give almost anything a chance.  Despite knowing that this would be […]

Jack Reacher (Blu-ray Review)

I’m not sure where I’ve been since 1997, but I’ve never heard of the name Jack Reacher until I heard news of the film being developed some years back.  Turns out Jack is quite the popular character from literary author Lee Child’s wildly “popular” series of novels.  Heck, this August will see the released of […]

‘Jack Reacher’ Puts Cruise In A Tall Position To Act In A Cool Procedural (Movie Review)

Here’s the thing about Jack Reacher – You have to accept a few things in order to get into the film.  For fans of the book series, you will have to accept the physical stature of Tom Cruise.  For people who are iffy on Tom Cruise in general, you will have to believe that he […]

‘The Paperboy’ Misses The Delivery

It seems like The Paperboy should have enough to make it an entertaining, trashy thriller.  It has all of the right ingredients, with several actors giving strong performances just for the sake of adding on to a film that does not even really need it.  Yet, the plot is shapeless and lacks anything that resembles […]

‘Red Tails’ Crash Lands

Red Tails is like a bad, unironic comic book movie come to life.  It could have been a number of different things, including a thrilling war-time action/adventure or a moving depiction of the turmoil faced by African American pilots during wartime, as they had to prove themselves in the face of segregation.  The film actually […]
