MY Thoughts on #Vice

I don’t think this movie needs much plot description. Vice is a movie that gives us more insight into why/how Dick Cheney, Vice President during George W. Bush’s regime has been dubbed the most powerful Vice President in America’s history given that the job is basically seen as a “dummy” one. The movie starts with […]

My Thoughts On If Beale Street Could Talk

Barry Jenkin’s follow up to the outstanding Moonlight, If Beale Street Could Talk is the story of Fonny, a 22 year old black man who is wrongfully incarcerated for rape. His equally young lover, Tish and her family are on the outside doing everything they can to get him out, especially since Tish is pregnant […]

My Thoughts On #Lionheart

I don’t have a good relationship with Nollywood. I know, I know. But I tried and almost always, I get disappointed. I am such a critical person that it is quite difficult to overlook all the errors and sub standards that they seem to serve us. I can’t even watch it humorously. That being said, […]

My Quick Thoughts on #BirdBox and #Roma

BIRDBOX I honestly wasn’t expecting much from this movie. I did not read the book so I had no idea what to expect. I don’t watch scary movies and the movie was marketed as a thriller but I found it a tad bit scary. Like, just a tad. Nothing I couldn’t handle. It is set […]

My Thoughts on Second Act

Maya works as an assistant manager at a grocery store and is expecting a big promotion on her 40th birthday. When she doesn’t get it, she is down on herself for not having a college degree and makes a wish that people like her could be seen. Her godson retouches her resume with “untruths” and […]

What’s Streaming on Netflix – December 2018 [Recommendations Included]

Well, we made it to the end of the year. ‘Tis the season where everyone has pretty much checked out of work and just their bodies are in the office. It’s countdown to Christmas vacation and the bumming that comes with it. Is it really bumming if you aren’t netflix-ing on your couch? Netflix seems […]

My Thoughts on #BohemianRhapsody

Freddie Mercury. The lead singer of the band Queen was a force all on his own. His flamboyance, his voice and let’s be honest, his teeth. He captured attention in a way very few people could. A movie about his life, cut short by AIDS at age 45, has been in the works for a […]

What’s Streaming on Netflix – November 2018

Yep. Boys and girls. We have just two months left in the year. With so much content, I can even imagine how much TV and movies we have consumed this year, if quantified in hours. Well, the winter is just about here and that means even more nights in and more Netflix time. Here is […]

My Thoughts on #AStarIsBorn

You really have to be under a rock if you haven’t heard of this movie. The marketing pockets must run deep because the push has been heavy and inescapable. A Star is Born is the new musical-romcom-drama starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper (who also directed the movie). They play Ally and Jackson. When they […]

My Thoughts on #TheHateUGive Movie

The Hate U Give is a movie adaptation based on the book of the same name. In case you are wondering if the “U” is a typo, it isn’t. It’s keeping it the same way it was given to us by TuPac (T.H.U.G). 16 year old Starr goes to a private school on the other […]
