The Birth Of A Nation (Blu-ray Review)

The Birth of a Nation came and went last year. Following its breakout at the Sundance Film Festival, the proceeding months were not kind to writer/director/producer/star Nate Parker, based on a muddy history that was brought back into the news. Still, there is a righteous part of me that sees a film recounting a historical […]

Parker’s ‘Birth Of A Nation’ Strikes Back At History (Movie Review)

The Birth of a Nation is a film designed to challenge various parts of me. There is a righteous part of me that sees a film recounting a historical event tying into relevant topics still affecting America today, as the nation continues to court more and more woke individuals. The other part concerns my role […]

His first film(s) were Head of State, and I Think I Love My Wife.  I have not seen those two but was really anxious to see his latest film Top Five. The buzz surrounding Top Five was favorable and the trailers and promotional materials were pretty funny, so it […]

‘Top Five’ Made Me Laugh My Pants Off (Movie Review)

I am a fan of seeing live standup comedy.  Something I have observed in that setting is what people can get away with.  Something about the standup environment allows comedians and audiences (within reason) to joke and laugh about things they would otherwise consider too much of a taboo.  With Top Five, Chris Rock has […]

Sometimes the strength of an ensemble can outweigh the bad ideas some have, as far as how to continue on with a film that had no real need to continue.  That almost works here.  2012’s Think Like a Man was somewhat of a surprise hit, with Kevin Hart beginning to break out big, and a […]
