No Country for Hollywood’s Bad Biopic Casting Choices

Three days later and I’m STILL mad! It’s because a new picture of Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone has surfaced and it looks even worse than the one I included in my last post. Zoe’s looking all dead in the eyes, looking like her face is dirty. She looks nothing …

Zoe Saldana was a Terrible Choice to Play Nina Simone

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Movie Was EVERYTHING!

For Colored Girls Who Watched The Movie And Wrote A Review Of It

I’ve never read Ntozake Shange’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf.” There. I said it. I saw a performance of it in high school when it was the Spring performance. I saw it twice because it was amazing. However, I’ve yet to read the choreopoem, …
