Passing (2021) Review

I saw the trailer for this film while browsing YouTube. The black & white aesthetic caught my eye as it is rarely used. Passing is strikingly similar to Imitation of Life (1959). It is about a light skin Black woman, Clare (Ruth Negga), who chose to masquerade as a White woman in the 1930s. As fate would have it, she reunited with her childhood friend … Continue reading Passing (2021) Review

King Richard (2021) Review

Since the Oscar fiasco, no one seems to be talking about King Richard, the film Will Smith won Best Actor for. He delivered a brilliant performance as Richard Williams, the father of tennis icons, Venus and Serena. You can watch it now on HBO Max. The story is about Richard coaching his two daughters while instilling in them important life principles. This is criticized throughout the film as it was … Continue reading King Richard (2021) Review

Will Smith Unleashes “New Form” on Chris Rock

Hi, I’m Jeremy and I’m an asshole in recovery. I hold no position of moral authority. It is my sentiment Will Smith should have pulled Chris Rock aside and had a conversation backstage. There are a ton of opinions online about what transpired, some of which I find problematic. Let me be clear, I indulge in the buffoonery by sharing memes and telling jokes. This is … Continue reading Will Smith Unleashes “New Form” on Chris Rock

Last Night in Soho (2021) Review

I became fixated on the projects of Anya Taylor-Joy after seeing her in The Witch. She had a look reminiscent of women in the golden age of Hollywood (1950-1967). Her roles tend to vary from genre to genre and she never fails to deliver, except for in New Mutants, that movie sucked. This time around she teamed up with relative newcomer, Thomasin McKenzie, in a … Continue reading Last Night in Soho (2021) Review

Don’t Breathe 2 (2021) Review

Someone with a nose full of cocaine when they green lit this movie. To add insult to injury, the sequel only took six years. It pissed me off with its poor quality and convoluted plot. The blind man, Norman Nordstrom (Stephen Lang), returned to do fatalities on home invaders. Its basically the same formula yet they managed to screw up every single aspect of the … Continue reading Don’t Breathe 2 (2021) Review

Lamb (2021) Review

This film made me feel uncomfortable for an hour and forty-six minutes. I’m still not sure what I watched, to be honest. The story is about a couple in Iceland that found a baby mutant and raised it as their own. I must warn you that it is an extremely slow-paced form of storytelling. Loads of wide shots that highlight the beautiful mountain terrain, high … Continue reading Lamb (2021) Review

Respect (2021) Review

Whoever was in charge of marketing needs they ass whooped. I had no idea there was a theatrical release. I jumped at the chance to rent it on VOD (video-on-demand). Aretha Franklin is an American icon! She’s done so much for both music and civil rights. She personally handpicked Jennifer Hudson to play this role. Hudson brought the fire; I’m talking’ scorched Earth. Her voice … Continue reading Respect (2021) Review

The Butcher of Plainfield (2007) Review

Whatever you do, avoid Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield. I had a feeling this movie was going to be bad but I didn’t know how bad. For those who don’t know, Ed Gein was a real person and one sick bastard. He inspired the creation of fictional villains such as Hannibal, Norman Bates, and Leatherface. Gein dug up graves, stole body parts, and violated … Continue reading The Butcher of Plainfield (2007) Review

His House (2020) Review

Netflix really stepped their game up this year. From foreign films to indie horror. His House is a about a married couple that escaped South Sudan to seek refuge in London. It is full of jump scares and suspense. Don’t expect your typical monster movie. This narrative is told from the perspective of not one but two unreliable narrators. The protagonists, Bol (Sope Dirisu) and … Continue reading His House (2020) Review
