‘The Birth of a Nation’ Movie Review

birth-of-a-nation-banner

Based on true events in the life of Nat Turner, who led a slave rebellion in 1831. This film in my opinion showed different yet horrific situations that slaves endured. Although there are very gory and hard scenes to watch it is still a good depiction of the heroic efforts Nat Turner and others fought for. Gabrielle Union has a small yet powerful role; she never says a word yet makes a mark.

‘Beyond the Lights’ Movie Review

Gina Prince-Bythewood is the Director and writer of this film. Her most popular film released 14 years ago was the now classic ‘Love and Basketball’. I’m not comparing the films because they stand on their own merit. I feel that Nate and Gugu’s characters have great chemistry and overall the film has a great cast. I totally enjoyed the music and the journey of this love story. Gina is also the writer/director of ‘Secret Life of the Bees’.  BTW, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, was last seen on the big screen this year in ‘Belle’. Several cameos by well known celebrities (background shots at awards ceremonies).

‘Non-Stop’ Movie Review

This is another thrilling ride for all Liam Neeson fans. There’s drama 30,000 miles up in the sky where there’s a killer running rampant on the plane. There’s a good thrill ride in the last 20 minutes of the film. Overall, it’s another winner for Liam in a role that he portrays well. By the way, our newest Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o has a very small role; the director of this film said he had no idea she had filmed an Oscar winning performance in ’12 Years A Slave’ when she filmed this movie.
