“Old” Is An Intriguing Mess

HOLLYWOOD—M. Night Shyamalan, as a director and writer he was a major influence on me as a screenwriter and director because of the amazing, epic job he did with the 1999 thriller “The Sixth Sense.” To this day it is the movie for me that had the best twist in cinematic history. I mean you get so absorbed in...

“The Forever Purge” Needs To End

HOLLYWOOD—When “The Purge” arrived in theaters in 2013 it was pure genius. I mean this movie had a concept that was unheard of, clever, thrilling, scary as hell and with a narrative that gripped you. After that the subsequent sequels, beyond “The Purge: Election Year” have fallen flat. You can only do so many sequels to a story before...

“Space Jam: A New Legacy” Is A Boring Ride

HOLLYWOOD—I was not a fan of the 1996 film “Space Jam” starring basketball legend Michael Jordan. I was a kid back then when the movie was released and it was silly. However, that film was much more animated in my opinion then this sequel, “Space Jam: A New Legacy.” I guess I can’t really call it a sequel, but...

“Psycho” Is The Ultimate Horror Classic!

HOLLYWOOD—While channel surfing something hit me, as a movie marathon of all Alfred Hitchcock classics were playing for like 2 days. As a film student, I deciphered, ripped apart and overanalyzed so many films by Alfred Hitchcock it took the fun out of the flicks for me including the films “The Birds” and “Rope” America. However, it hit me...

Megan Thee Stallion Big Winner At BET Awards

HOLLYWOOD—This was an awards show that I religiously watched about 15 years ago. It was an awards show that celebrated Black excellence and was actually entertaining, full of surprises and delivered musical performances that people were talking about the next day during the water cooler conversation at work. Those days have long past for the BET Awards. The 2021...

“F9” Is Starting To Feel Fatigued

HOLLYWOOD—It is hard to believe in 20 years we have had 9, yes count’em people, nine entries into “The Fast and the Furious” franchise.
