This film doesn’t open in theatres until Christmas day yet I saw it at a paid showing over this past weekend. Based on a true story (book as well) we have a soldier called back to active duty yet he has found a new love. Their love story (somewhat predictable) is told and how he left a legacy of love in his journal to his son Jordan. A tearjerker at the end. NOTE: I believe this is Michael B. Jordan’s first “bare booty” scene in his career yet watch for it! 🙂
Based on a true story we have a well-acted film that depicts Walter McMillian journey to a new trial lead by Bryan Stevenson. Although the era is not so long ago the case and the facts are that of generations ago when a black man could easily be sentenced to life or death row for a crime that he did not commit. There are scenes that are quite emotional.

This follow up to the hit a few years ago is different yet I liked it. Creed has matured as a man and his love and passion of boxing has brought him a championship. This one is more of a love story and it’s sexy and I liked it, lol.

I can’t say I’m a hater or lover of the ever so popular #Rocky franchise. I remember for the most part the biggest scenes in a few of the movies. Much to my surprise this new addition to the franchise, is a winner in my opinion. I became a fast fan of Michael B. Jordan after his great performance in ‘Fruitvale Station’ and previous work on ‘The Wire’ and ‘All My Children’. Everything worked and clicked in this movie.

Any true Marvel fan has probably not been pleased with this film. This re-boot still isn’t up to fan appreciation. I will say it’s a little better than I thought it would be yet still disappointing. And….there was no end credit scene. I still hope co-star Michael B. Jordan has a great career despite this box office flub. This one isn’t worth paying full price for at the theatre…wait for cable.

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’.
