Tiffany Haddish Steals the Show in "Nobody's Fool"

Tiffany Haddish Steals the Show in "Nobody's Fool"
Nobody’s Fool is a slap-stick romantic comedy (written, directed and produced) by Tyler Perry that had me rolling. It was a nice break from the normal hum drum rom com flicks that I have seen this year. Tiffany Haddish steals the show… once again, as she plays younger sister, (Tanya) to Tika Sumpter’s character (Danica).... Read more »

Jane Fonda in Five Acts (2018) Review: A Gripping Memoir

Jane Fonda in Five Acts (2018) Review: A Gripping Memoir
Jane Fonda’s memoir proves to be both a charged and dysfunctional story of the search for one woman’s identity and worth. The documentary takes viewers down an unusual winding road, explaining the early years, acting and celebrity life, periods of activism, family and Fonda legacy. Jane makes her mark by pushing the envelope and embracing her place in history with... Read more »

'Deadpool 2 ' (2018) Review: A Marvel Sequel of Anamolies

'Deadpool 2 ' (2018) Review: A Marvel Sequel of Anamolies
‘Dead Pool 2’ is something of a rather odd phenomenon, which follows suit to the original’s unconventional and unforseen blockbuster success. This film is made up of odd, quirky little clichés that somehow works. Writers Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds team up for what will be one of the highest grossing superhero movies...

'Avengers: Infinity War' (2018): Emotions Run High with Universe Hanging in the Balance

'Avengers: Infinity War' (2018): Emotions Run High with Universe Hanging in the Balance
Do we all live or do we all die? Who stays and who goes? You will not know the answers to these questions until you see ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. At first, I thought the movie was about fighting a war “infinitely” like ‘X-men’s Days of Future Past’. Time to throw down the gauntlet…so to speak??... Read more »

'Traffik' (2018): A Tragic Narrative about Sex Trafficking

'Traffik' (2018): A Tragic Narrative about Sex Trafficking
‘Traffik’ is a film that surrounds the topic of sex trafficking. This is not to be confused with the Oscar-winning Steven Soderberg film ‘Traffic’ (2000). This film by Deon Taylor is altogether different. A few years ago, I saw a documentary on sex trafficking in Chicago and know others that that have done films on... Read more »

'Lean on Pete' Review (2017): An Emotional Coming of Age Story

'Lean on Pete' Review (2017): An Emotional Coming of Age Story
I knew a little about the story before watching and I was hearing about the buzz. The young teenage actor Charlie Plummer is from ‘All the Money in the World’. I figured this would be a great film… and I was right. A young boy and his horse. What could go wrong? This was one... Read more »

'Just A Friend' Review (2017): Platonic or Not?
When the phrase ‘Just a Friend’ is uttered from the lips of entertainment enthusiasts, one thinks of Biz Markie’s platinum award-winning song released in 1989. He really knew what he was talking about! ‘Just a Friend’ is one of the most commonly used terms surrounding men and women in relationships, but it can be interpreted... Read more »
