At the ripe old age of twenty-three, John Singleton wrote and directed his first feature film – Boyz n the Hood.  The movie offered an honest look at the lives of young black men living in an impoverished neighborhood in California and garnered Singleton two Oscar nominations.  Two years later his second film, Poetic Justice, was re...

The Nutcracker story is synonymous with the Christmas holiday season. The famous ballet is known the world over and has been enchanting audiences for well over a hundred years. Disney took this classic story and released The Nutcracker and the Four Realms back in November to some pretty critical reviews. Now, the film will be available on 4K UHD to... Read More

Once upon a time...That's the way all fairytales, old and new, usually begins, so I thought I'd start my review by honoring this modern take on one of them in the same way. "The Kid Who Would Be King" is quite simply a wonderfully bright new take on the Arthurian legend. Part "Goonies" style action adventure, part allegory, and ... Read More

Racial Profiling is defined as the use of race or ethnicity as grounds for suspecting someone of having committed an offense and it is a problem that plagues cities across this country.  Recently a number of unarmed young, black men have been killed by police officers who saw them as a threat simply based on the color of their skin.  When...

A long time ago, in a galaxy not too far away, Universal Pictures released the most bloated, and expensive movie of all time (prior to Titanic).At the time Waterworld was released, it seemed that it could do nothing right in the eyes of critics and movie-goers, alike. I remember disliking it, immediately, although that was due more to my dislike fo... Read More

Over the years the entertainment industry has given birth to some very beguilingly comedy duos. I'm sure you know some of them; they crop up every decade. Some disappear as quickly as they arrived, others leave behind them a vague memory, but a few brilliant ones leave behind an enduring legacy.Unless you've lived under a rock somewhere, you'll kno...
