‘Detroit’ Movie Review

Detroit movie banner

INTENSE and it’s a hard movie to refer people to go and see.  Based on true accounts from the 1967 riot in Detroit this movie focuses on the murders of three young men at the Algier’s motel.  Is the movie totally factual?  No.  I had a quick conversation with  a relative of Fred Temple’s and the movie does not tell the story of what actually happened and I noticed a couple things that didn’t tie in well.  What’s important about this movie is that it depicts a big part of history that I wasn’t as aware of as I thought.  I was sad, angry and drained all at the same time.  The worst thing about the movie is that the same senseless murders by police officers are still happening in 2017 and even with modern technology from cell phone videos etc… bad cops are still getting away with murder.  Not all cops are bad cops…I know of good ones.  I believe there will be Oscar nominations as this movie had stellar performances.

‘Sleight’ Movie Review

Sleight Movie

Is the magician really a magician?  The storyline of the lead actor is laid out pretty good. He want to do good for his sister yet he’s caught up in something that spins out of control.  The last half hour, the movie turn sci-fi and ends sci-fi.

‘Collateral Beauty’ Movie Review

I expected this movie to be “dark” based on the trailers. I didn’t expect to fall in love with this movie. The storyline is sad for this time of the year, especially for anyone who has lost a child. The end of the movie leaves you wondering if angels really do exist. Strong performance by Will Smith. Definitely worth checking out…tissues may be needed. Great ensemble cast.

‘Ride Along’ Movie Review

Ride Along

A definite attempt to start a new comic duo that are policemen. For me there are a few laugh out loud moments in this mediocre storyline. I totally have enjoyed past Will Packer produced movies, as well as, movies Tim Story has directed (they are definitely a dynamic duo behind the scenes) yet this film falls short with the storyline that has a great cast (Kevin Hart, Ice Cube, Tika Sumpter, John Leguizamo). If there’s a sequel, let’s hope for a better script. If you’re looking to have a movie outing for some laughs, catch this movie…don’t expect anything more. BTW, it was #1 at the box office last weekend defying critics bad rating of it. 2014 seems to be the year of Kevin Hart films….a year his fans have been waiting for.

‘Black Nativity’ Movie Review

black Nav cover

This is a Holiday musical that is depicted from the Play by poet Langston Hughes. With a well known ensemble cast, this film is current day yet recreates biblical scenes of the birth of Christ. The story is about love with inspiring moments especially with the music! Raphael Saadiq is the Executive Music Director and as usual he does a fabulous job (especially songs that were chosen for this film). The music from well known singers is wonderful and all others try to hold their own (lol). Nice movie to see this Holiday Season with family and friends.
