This week has been a bit of a nightmare but that’s okay. I was sick this whole week and feel like am missing out on so much. Since I couldn’t work I read a lot of texts and readings, I watched many films and television. I’m struggling to find a TV series I love more […]
If Beale Street Could Talk
By Kristen Clure Watching a band that you avidly follow grow is always a rewarding experience. There’s something about being connected to the music as an artist grows and learns to define their sound. There’s something so powerful to watching a band transform on stage once they really find their groove in performing.
A big THANK YOU to all who changed their schedule yesterday and came to help us! Wasn’t that a great film last night … Now just stay to read more about our next movie on June 20th: IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK.
Allow the children to keep the love bond with their parents as well as forming with the mentors that they have and the people that are in the same instance. In If Beale Street Could Talk the notion of love is prominent throughout the book. Tish is pregnant with Fonny’s child, while Fonny is in […]
Cardi B’s honesty is being rewarded.
The coming-of-age genre has had its highs and lows in the past decade, in addition to several gems in the rough. One such gem comes out this weekend in the form of Booksmart, the directorial debut of Olivia Wilde, and it succeeds as a film that sets another standard for female filmmaking and mid-budget cinema […]
I admit I have been very busy recently – an internship at a distribution company throughout March and early April and a wonderful trip to New York have left me quite distracted. The list of films I’ve yet to review is growing, as is the pressure to finally review them. However, I promise to cover […]
I’ve been thinking about the meaning behind this title. If Beale Street could talk, what would it say? Would it protect Fonny and Tish from the racism that walks over it? Would it support people like Officer Bell who represent the flaws of America and its segregated justice? Would it mind its own business as […]
“If Beale Street Could Talk” “Of course, I must say that I don’t think America is God’s gift to anybody – if it is, God’s days have got to be numbered. That God these people say they serve- and do serve, in ways that they don’t know – has got a very nasty sense of […]
If Beale Street Could Talk is regarded as one of James Baldwin’s best novels. It is a story of love, intimacy, and tragedy. Fonny is falsely imprisoned on charges of rape while his pregnant girlfriend Tish struggles to get him out. The story is told entirely from Tish’s perspective in a sort of stream of […]
Awards Show Season is coming up fast and is almost as an exciting time as the holidays for film nerds like me. 2018 my New Year’s resolution was not only to read more but to see every film nominated for Best Picture this year. I have seen a handful of them (Black Klansmen being my […]
Well, let me tell you something, guys. Despite how you feel about the ending of this famous HBO series, I feel like there is a TV hole in my TV heart. Yes, the finale was controversial (at best), but that doesn’t mean that, for most of us, Game of Thrones represented a lot of our […]
Pop Culture Roundup is a quarterly series about the television shows, music, and films I have enjoyed so far in 2019. Movies and documentaries watched (for the 1st time): Annihilation (film on Hulu) Fyre Fraud (documentary on Hulu) Fyre (documentary on Netflix) Close (movie on Netflix) New TV shows (and old)/etc.: You (on Netflix) Brooklyn […]
The boys are back in town. The boys are actually grown men by the name of Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, and the town is Cannes, France, but no matter: now that two of the world’s most beloved actors are sharing the screen in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, we […]
