  • Sandy Wexler – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    As comedians get older, usually they retreat into the dramatic fields and start exploring what else is out there for them. Yet, for Adam Sandler, thanks to a multi-movie Netflix deal, it seems he feels validated in sticking to his old ways and not making any changes to his formula. Hence, Sandy Wexler.

  • Black Nativity – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview An Urban Gospel with spirit, but hardly any soul. Review (with Spoilers) First things first, I have never read the play this film is based on, but with so many top quality actors in the movie, as well as a mix of newcomers to film, I was interested. Unfortunately, though, in my mind, I was picturing a Sister Act type movie in which well-known songs were given a gospel spin, like how the trailer uses As by Stevie Wonder, but all the songs, in fact, are original or inspired by Christmas songs. Thus, making Black Nativity an urban gospel musical, of which I sort wished I waited to, or didn’t, see. Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.

  • The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview Further proof that there are many reasons to invest in young actors of color. Trigger Warning(s): Scenes of Drug Use & Violence against children   Review (with Spoilers) 2013 contained a huge amount of films focusing on Black characters and the amount of diversity was quite good. But, naturally, some fell through the cracks. The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, unfortunately, was one of those films which unless you lived near a major metropolitan area, likely the movie came and went without you knowing. This is despite Jennifer Hudson in the film, with other recognizable names such as Anthony Mackie, Jordin Sparks, and Jeffrey Wright. Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.
