  • Passing

    Passing

    Are you a fan of Black-and-White films?-- If so, this Black-and-White drama directed by Rebecca Hall, “Passing,” is for you. A small number of people will appreciate “Passing” because of its marginalized concept of cultural assimilation and colorization. Today’s audience will ignore this movie because it’s in Black-and-White. This film would be appreciated some sixty years ago when Black-and-White films were still a majority, but since segregation still existed, this film would’ve been blackballed then as well for different reasons.…

    The Harder They Fall

    What’s the purpose of the film?—A question most people ask, especially cinephiles. So, what’s the purpose of Jeymes Samuel’s directorial debut “The Harder They Fall?” Well, for the curious, it’s an old western movie, but with Black people. It’s finally the day, John Wayne. You betcha. “The Harder They Fall” is a western movie with its revenge plot-line. If Jay-Z created an Instagram page the night before his newly produced movie released on Netflix, then I can sit through a…

    Red Notice

    When I hear Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson advertised in a movie, I don’t automatically assume the movie will be a hit, despite Dwayne being the highest-paid actor throughout the years. Dwayne is well-liked, well-known, and humorous. He’s box-office. Under those attributes, “Red Notice” is precisely what you’d expect from a Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson movie, a child-friendly, adventurous comedy. What’s the film's expectation? A considerably low expectation when compared to genres other than a comedy. That being the case, this…

  • Nomadland

    Nomadland

    “And the Oscar for Best Actress goes to… ‘Frances McDormand.” A solid pick. “And the Oscar (For Best Director) goes to… ‘Chloe Zhao.” An outstanding choice. “And the Oscar (For Best Picture) goes to... ‘Nomadland.” A questionable decision. Some found the 2021 Best Picture Winner a weak and unconvincing film. “Nomadland” struggled to dramatize the life of a Nomad. Now that could’ve been a very realistic depiction of a Nomad’s lifestyle, but ever since the existence of film, dramatized stories…

    Superbad

    “I am McLovin-n!” — These three badass teenagers — Seth, Evan, and Fogell star in arguably the best high school drama we’ve ever seen — It’s like “Mean Girls,” but with three blues-clues rather than four plastics. Who doesn’t like an occasional remembrance of the glory days or nightmare for that matter — It’s senior year, and these 3-goons need to get laid before college life. They embark on a mysterious high school night — where everyone’s out and about…

    Wedding Crashers

    Crashing Jewish weddings — Christian weddings — For Christ's sake, funerals as well — The comedy “Wedding Crashers” delivers a hysterical film of two sleaze-balls seducing women into sex: by—[1] Crying during vows [2] Dancing with elders [3] Forming balloon animals for children — Their modus operandi scores them multifarious women; every mans’ dream while enjoying a nice slice of cake, but when you find the one, you find the one. Oh, and their disguise as “Uncle Ned’s kids” somehow secures them two incestuous babes. Thank…
