‘Repentance’ Movie Review

Repentance

Here’s a pretty good ensemble cast in a storyline that’s pretty predictable. Of course, Forest Whitaker gives a great performance of a sick yet deranged man who needs to take his meds (he usually does very well playing these types of roles). He’s on a journey to get closure from a situation that haunts him. Mike Epps takes on another serious role that doesn’t go over too well. Anthony Mackie holds his own as usual. If there was better editing the movie wouldn’t have been so predictable and would have been better. There are a few hard to watch torture scenes; withcraft type scenes as well that reminded me of ‘Beloved’. Based on the film “The Gypsy and the Gury”.

‘Fruitvale Station’ Movie Review

FruitVale Stat Banner

This is the first film this year that is Oscar worthy! This independent film and a stellar acting performance from Michael B. Jordan (Oscar Grant) have potential for Oscar nominations (in my opinion). This is a true story of the last day of Oscar Grant’s Life. This is a solid film that is powerful; emotional; and a MUST-SEE film. Ariana Neal portrays Oscar’s daughter, Tatiana, and also delivers a great acting performance. Great casting all around for this film. ‘Fruitvale Station’ opened two weeks ago in a few cities across the country…today 7/26 is the national opening date. PLEASE support this film by going to the theatre and making sure your ticket says ‘Fruitvale Station’.
