Four, young, black men walk into a room…it may sound like the beginning of a joke but, in fact, it is the foundation for Regina King's (If Beale Street Could Talk) directorial debut, One Night in Miami.  Inspired by true events, the film brings together four Iconic Black men who, in the midst of the Civil Rights movement, wielded great ...

This past year has been a trying experience under the best of circumstances.  Families stuck together 24/7 for weeks at a time. It could drive anyone crazy as little quirks that were once "cute" are now a thorn in the rest of the family's side.  However, what if you were trapped in a London flat with your significant other w...

Witchcraft…everyone has their own ideas of what that word means.  Officially it is described as "the practice of magic, especially black magic; the use of spells".  Some truly believe in the power of witchcraft while others think it is all make believe.  Some practice the artform and see it much like an organized rel...

Let's face it…it wouldn't be the holiday season without at least one Disney/Pixar film being released.  These family-friendly fares are a perfect way for parents and children (and maybe even grandparents) to spend time together, munching on snacks in a dark theater during the holiday break.  Of course, this year will be a l...

If you were born in the ‘70's you certainly remember Lynda Carter (Sky High) as Wonder Woman on television.  You will also (hopefully) remember the mid-1980's.  If so, Wonder Woman 1984 will be a stroll down memory lane for you with shoulder pads, tracksuits, and large, curly hairstyles.  The highly anticipated sequel once agai...

Gertrude Pridgett was born in April 1886 in Georgia…or, if you believe the 1900 census, she was born in 1882 in Alabama.  Regardless, despite her humble and uneventful beginnings, Gertrude would go on to become known as Ma Rainey (Viola Davis; Suicide Squad) a.k.a. the "Mother of the Blues".  She recorded music with the b...

If you look up the definition of the word tenet you will find the following: a principle, belief, or doctrine generally held to be true especially one held in common by members of an organization, movement, or profession.   If you ask director Christopher Nolan (Inception) his definition of Tenet, he will probably tell you it is a movie t...
