The Forgotten Art of Movie Posters

Let’s be honest, movie posters today are not very good. There was a time where movie posters weren’t treated like a high school Photoshop project, but those days are long gone.

Girls Trip Movie Review

Having recently just seen the female led comedy Rough Night, I came in expecting something similar from Malcolm D. Lee’s Girls Trip. What I got was not only very different, but extremely enjoyable.  A departure from Lee’s typically male dominated ensembles, this comedy gold written and starring black women, plays an important role in representation by allowing the […]

If anyone were to ask me what my favorite Disney princess was, I would answer Pocahontas. As a child, I would jump off the couch just as Pocahontas would jump off the waterfall in the movie. She was an example of what a strong woman was to me and I appreciate that. Unfortunately, there aren’t […]

Spider-Man: Homecoming – Movie Review

They had a good run, but Marvel’s streak of comic-fueled success had to end eventually, right? Probably this time. That’s the take I was bracing for, girding myself against the unwelcome likelihood that Marvel’s bound to lay an egg sometime. Maybe it’s that the last three Spider-Man movies from Sony haven’t exactly set the world […]
