Captive State

The resistance will not be televised. 10 years ago, aliens came to Terra Firma with the idea in mind of improving our planet, and in turn, we’d give them many of our resources. And to an extent, they did, lowering crime rates, instituting a stable world structure, and one-party politics. However, not all is well, […]

As many New Yorkers do, […]

Isn’t It Romantic (2019)?

Can always use more of Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles. At an early age, a once-idealistic view on love existed in the heart of Natalie (Rebel Wilson). That is, until her mother informed her, rather bluntly, that the type of things seen in Pretty Woman, Sleepless in Seattle, any J. Lo movie, and the like don’t […]

Velvet Buzzsaw

Art lives. The rich and pompous spend their time ogling over exquisite pieces of art on the beaches of Miami and the posh spots of Los Angeles. For some, like art critic Morf Vandewalt (Jake Gyllenhaal), his job has turned way too personal, using his words to further some careers and kill others. For others, such […]

If Beale Street Could Talk

Love is never without hardship. Ever since they were kids growing up in Harlem, Tish Rivers (KiKi Layne) and Alonzo “Fonny” Hunt (Stephan James) were inseparable. Almost seamlessly, their friendship turned into love. The 1970’s have opened up a few things for blacks, but by-and-large, the day-to-day difficulties are still present. Their bond is strong […]

Destroyer (2018)

Vice (2018)

Soft touch, that’s all. One Dick Cheney (Christian Bale) is a directionless young man in the early 1960’s. He’s squandering any potential he may have by being unruly and wasting his days getting drunk, leading to an expulsion from Yale University. This is the bottom for him, and the only reason it’s not rock is […]
