My thoughts on the Golden Globe Nominations

As you may well know, award season is my season. Award season makes me giddy from predictions to nominations to the actual awards. Today was nomination day for my favorite award show. I like the Golden Globes because it just seems fun. They serve them dinner and drinks and they sit in round tables and […]

My take on “12 Years a Slave”

Ah…where do I begin with this movie? I knew I wanted to see this movie but I knew it wouldn’t be an easy watch so I hesitated but talked myself into man-ing up and seeing it. And boy am I so ever glad I did. The movie tells the true story of a freed slave […]

Fruitvale Station Review [Guest Post by Kash]

I haven’t had the chance to see the movie yet but earlier in the year, I predicted that Michael B Jordan and Octavia Spencer might be our minority representatives at the award show circuit this year. I have heard only good things about the movie, so I look forward to watching it. Reader, Kash was […]

The Great Gatsby Review

  If you haven’t heard about this movie, then you must have been under a rock. The Marketing/Media blitz for this movie was INSANE. Every show had this movie in its commercial.The movie is yet another adaption based on the popular book with the same name, this time written and directed by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo+Juliet, […]

R.I.P Roger Ebert

To the man who was a beloved and astute movie critic both on tv and in print To the man who gave us the “two thumbs up” gesture at the movies To the man who was so well rounded and witty not just on the topic of movies To the man who made me sneak […]

My Take on Tyler Perry’s “Temptation”

  First of all, I feel like I should get the official name of this movie right because simply calling this movie, “Temptation” isn’t enough and also an African American movie by Tyler Perry has to have his name in the title so tickets can be sold (or so I presume). So to start things […]

My Oscar Predictions

The grand finale of award shows is upon us on Sunday, February 24. Surprisingly enough, for an award show goon like myself, the Oscars are at the bottom of my list of award shows. Everyone just seems so uptight and since it’s the last one, it’s usually predictable and boring. The last two surprises are […]

New on DVD this week – February 5

                                  My recommendation: Flight Denzel gives a fantastic turn (albeit his usual textbook performance) in this movie about a pilot who saves a plane from crashing even though he was under the influence. The movie follows his journey after […]

DVD Recommendation – End of Watch

Looking for something good to watch I recommend – End of Watch.  A lot of people didn’t get to see this movie at the theaters but I was very pleasantly surprised by this buddy cop movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena (who you might recognise from Crash). The two of them had great chemistry […]

It’s exhilarating to see deserving people win, frustrating to see the snubs and fun to see your early predictions come true. Anyways, the Oscars are my least […]
