I have always loved a good black movie. There always seems to be something about them. The feelings, the emotions, the “drama”. Not to mention above all that seeing all that beautiful brown skin is something amazing. Beautiful to see all the successful melanin on screen is always a great thing. Now with that said, […]

eLisa Moss wants to go to an honest place. If you can not see what we are doing, she says, how can you find out and confront what is happening around you in our country and in this world? They are sitting near a hotel bar to promote the US release of their indie film […]
Written by Shini Meyer Wang.Graphic by Peyton Cabaniss. – Ripe with relevance, symbolism, and nuance, director Jordan Peele’s second horror hit holds a mirror up to us, prodding at our neglected awareness of the monsters within as individuals and as a society.

The second film to come out of who will definitely be this generation’s M. Night Shyamalan — except five times more lovable, ‘Us’ tackles the theory that “we are our own worst enemy”.

Oscar za „najlepszy scenariusz oryginalny”, Satelita dla najlepszego reżysera oraz łączny dochód oscylujący w granicach 255 milionów dolarów, przy budżecie wynoszącym niecałe 5, chyba […]

Entertainment | A couple weeks ago, I saw the movie Us. Now, I like to consider myself a horror movie connoisseur, but this movie left me puzzled. After seeing the trailer for the first time, my expectations of Us was that it would be similar to the 2008 American horror film, The Strangers. To my […]
