Black Panther Digital DVD Release copy

It’s been three months since Marvel Studios dropped Black Panther and the film came through and stole all our hearts in its’ boldness, brilliance and overall BAWSINESS. It has been three months since I became an official citizen of Wakanda, and I hail my king T’Challa and my duchesses, the Dora Milajes. I give props to my [...]

Black Panther. This movie has taken over the world! It’s been probably the biggest pop culture moment in the last decade, and the most highly anticipated film in a long while. It’s finally here, and it has lived up to every piece of hype it has gotten. I’ve seen it twice so far, and will [...]

Because I am Obsessed with “Get Out” Thumbnail

This post is long overdue because I first saw Jordan Peele’s new film Get Out over a month ago. Yes, I said “first” because I did something I usually don’t: I went to the theater again to see a movie. TWICE in one month. That is how obsessed I am with this. It is about a [...]

The 2017 Oscars was at the Intersection of HELL YEAH & WTF! Thumbnail

We watch anyway, because try as we may, we can’t stay away. [...]

It’s a film that has been drowning in controversy since it was announced, especially amongst Chicagoans who [...]

The Wiz

NBC just announced that they will be bringing a live action version of The Wiz to TV screens near us on December 3. Then the show will be revived on Broadway in 2016 in partnership with Cirque du Soleil. YESSSSSS!!! This news made me hit a jig. The original film version from 1978 starred Diana [...]

Whitney Movie Lifetime

The much-talked about Whitney Houston movie came on Lifetime yesterday and we all know how their track record with biopics is less than stellar (read: downright a mess). But, I had hope that this would be a good one because Angela Bassett was directing, and Yaya Dacosta as Whitney in pics was semi-convincing (plus I’ve [...]

SELMA is Not Just Brilliant But Right On Time Thumbnail

I was invited to a private screening of the SELMA movie by Paramount Pictures and Ava DuVernay in New York in November and I didn’t just cry during the film. I wept. I ugly-cried like I wasn’t sitting in a room with 40 other people. But everyone else was in tears too so I let it [...]
