This week Alicia and I went to support Black movies and Issa Rae for her new feature film about a black woman entrepreneur that bullies everyone until she is reversed into her old self and has to face the world as child under the same conditions. Not my normal film would go to see but this one seemed a lot more interesting.
Amazing short Netflix series about a woman for some reason keeps dying on the day of her birthday. The humorous ways she dies and the way she tries not to die takes you on a crazy trip into this Russian Jewish woman in New York. Very diverse with the characters as well as clever clever dialogue. Absolutely worth seeing. Here's my Review.
This was the movie Alicia and I were pretty excited about. Since I make her watch all the asian cinema movies and anime with me. We saw this as something amazing to highlight a culture that isn't recognized on that level in the United states. The Asian Black Panther with out the superhero outfit and the Marvel logo. What a very entertaining movie.
Rachel Chu is happy to accompany her longtime boyfriend, Nick, to his best friend's wedding in Singapore. She's also surprised to learn that Nick's family is extremely wealthy and he's considered one of the country's most eligible bachelors. Thrust into the spotlight, Rachel must now contend with jealous socialites, quirky relatives and something far, far worse -- Nick's disapproving mother
This independent movie made by rapper Boots Riley from the rap group "The Coup". Was something Alicia and I saw previews on it and couldn't wait to see. This strange and controversial movie is a strong commentary on labor and social interactions in our society today. It takes a turn towards the end but we left the theater with a good feeling about this creative well acted movie that critics are really ranting about.
In an alternate reality of present-day Oakland, Calif., telemarketer Cassius Green finds himself in a macabre universe after he discovers a magical key that leads to material glory. As Green's career begins to take off, his friends and co-workers organize a protest against corporate oppression. Cassius soon falls under the spell of Steve Lift, a cocaine-snorting CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams
I sit down today with my Grandson Marsalis after we both watched the 2nd season of Lemony Snicket "A series of unfortunate events" series on Netflix. He was so excited by it , that I decided to bring this 9 year olds perspective of what he saw and go over the series 1 and 2 from a childs perspective. I enjoyed this interaction, Hope you will too.
When a massive fire kills their parents, three children are delivered to the custody of cousin and stage actor Count Olaf, who is secretly plotting to steal their parents' vast fortune.
Today, in-between the so called summer movie blockbusters. We decide to check out a comedy. Something that seemed to be interesting and funny at the same time. Tag, a true story about childhood friends that take one month out of the year to play the child's game of Tag with grown adults.Previews were somewhat hilarious so we took a chance.
One month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running for a no-holds-barred game of tag -- risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take one another down. This time, the game coincides with the wedding of the only undefeated player. What should be an easy target soon becomes an all-out war as he knows they're coming to get him
So Alicia and I loved the first movie for Deadpool and was looking forward to the next release. This one seems to be about a lot of supporting characters with Deadpool in the center of it all. We sit down laugh, scream and criticize the part 2 version of his second release of this Deadpool franchise.
Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.
This movie was a very badly rated film that we felt was an interesting concept. Thinking it was another version of Honey I shrunk the kids, but with a modern twist. We happen to be wrong but this is not what people expected to be so we took the time to check it out. Actually an interesting movie.
When scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall as a solution to overpopulation, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures
Alicia and I finally get to see a comedy worth going to see. Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams are hilarious in this new comedy mystery about a came night murder /kidnapping mystery. The only movie that came close to being a good all around comedy over the last year is "Girls trip".
Max and Annie's weekly game night gets kicked up a notch when Max's brother Brooks arranges a murder mystery party -- complete with fake thugs and federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it's all supposed to be part of the game. As the competitors set out to solve the case, they start to learn that neither the game nor Brooks are what they seem to be. The friends soon find themselves in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn over the course of one chaotic night.
We started getting ready for the Oscars, Golden Globes, Peoples Choice, Screen Actors Guild and more by going through the projected nominees for these awards. Alicia and I start to look at the potential winning movies and actors/actresses. This madly outrageously overrated movie was something we thought we needed to see. Its easy to describe this common coming to age movie because the premise is basically the same. Soooo, we sit down to tell you our opinions about this....critically acclaimed movie. Which was rated very high with Rotten tomatoes.
Marion McPherson, a California nurse, works tirelessly to keep her family afloat after her husband loses his job. She also maintains a turbulent bond with a teenage daughter who is just like her -- loving, strong-willed and deeply opinionated.
