Meeting the girlfriend's family for the first time can be nerve-wracking, especially when she is white and they haven't been told that you are an African-American male.  Let's face it, for all the talk, racism still exists in this country. That was the dilemma for Chris Washington (Daniel Kaluuya; Sicario).  He was going to the home ...

The last few seasons of HBO's hit show Girls, while still being well written and acted, has made one wonder if it is just time to pack up and go.  How long can we play out the "single, not sure I want to grow up or even how to" drama? Well, we have our answer…Six Seasons.  HBO ended the series this April on a high no... Read More

On the surface, it is a sweet, charming story about young love with a dramatic twist.  As it unfolds, the layers reveal so much more. The story is told in a visually appealing manner that will draw the attention of its intended market base of teens/young adults while introducing complex, mature themes that will engage their parents and open co...

Usually when you think of a western movie you think of horses, gunslingers, saloons, and cowboys.  1992's Academy Award winner for best picture, Unforgiven, has all that and more.   With Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino) at the helm, both directing and starring in it, the movie opened to well deserved critical praise and became an aud...

There have always been space movies spattered throughout the years and they all seem to instill a sense of survival mode while watching.  You root for the astronaut to hold his breath when the face mask cracks; you hope the rocket will have enough fuel to make it safely back home, and you pray that the Apollo doesn't burn up re-entering th...

Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner… It was with these words the world was introduced to the trailer for the Michael Mann (Public Enemies) film that would become a classic. Bringing together two powerhouse actors face to face for the firs... Read More

In the past, there have been television shows about life in prison.  That is nothing original.  However, most of them focus on men in prison so when Orange is the New Black, which views life in a women's correctional facility, debuted on Netflix on July 11, 2013, it was somewhat groundbreaking.  Not only was it differen...
