“Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife” Is Witty Action

HOLLYWOOD—Balancing action and comedy I would argue is difficult in the Hollywood arena, however, gold has been found with “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” which spawned a sequel, “The Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife.” Comedy veteran Ryan Reynolds returns, as does loudmouth Samuel L. Jackson. Look, I don’t know where that moniker came in for Jackson, but I have yet to see a...

“In The Heights” Is Musical Magic

HOLLYWOOD—I tell people this time and time again, I’m not the biggest fan of musicals. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around the notion of people just having a conversation and bursting out in song and dance. However, that is NOT my only grip it’s the fact that so many musicals have great song and dance numbers,...

“Cruella” Is Absolutely Fantastic!

HOLLYWOOD—I was absolutely mesmerized with the Disney prequel “Cruella.” The thing about prequels, they tend to fail to deliver that actual punch that the audience actually wants in the movie universe. However, this film which chronicles the backstory of one of Disney’s iconic villains is exceptional. Whenever the writers can present a narrative that makes you feel sorry for...

“The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” Lacking Suspense

HOLLYWOOD—Can you believe it we have already reached the third installment in “The Conjuring” franchise? The first flick which arrived in 2013 was full of surprises and spine-chilling terror. The 2016 sequel “The Conjuring 2” was an epic sequel in my opinion, turning up the horror to new heights. So what about this third installment, “The Devil Made Me...

“Wrath Of Man” Is A Mixed Bag

HOLLYWOOD—Jason Statham has been known as an action star for as long as I can remember. This is the guy who is notorious for putting a beating on the good guys and the bad guys in cinema. His latest flick, “Wrath of Man” proves why Jason Statham is synonymous with the term, ‘Action Star.’ His latest outing is really...

“A Quiet Place II” Is Intense, Suspenseful Chills

HOLLYWOOD—It was absolutely the best movie I saw in 2019. I am referring to the spine-tingling “A Quiet Place.” I cannot recall being so unnerved in a movie theater, where I was afraid to make a sound in the theater thinking I would be the cause of those creatures that hunt through sound attacking one of the protagonists in...

“Those Who Wish Me Dead” Is Exciting Fun

HOLLYWOOD—You know how you see those trailers for movies that just look so intriguing that you want to see them? “Those Who Wish Me Dead” starring Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie is one of those flicks that actually lives up to the buzz and hype that the movie teased. As a viewer, this movie has a great narrative, wicked villains and...

“Spiral” Does Not Inspire New Thrills

HOLLYWOOD—I had seriously high hopes for this latest entry in the “Saw” franchise titled “Spiral.” It is the latest entry in the horror catalogue that if you count this flick, is the ninth entry, only it does not have “Saw” as a moniker. However, if you think this horror fest is about to deliver something fresh, new and exciting,...

2021 MTV Movie And TV Awards Recap

HOLLYWOOD—Leslie Jones was the perfect choice to host the 2021 MTV & TV Awards. That woman is damn hilarious and kicked off the ceremony spoof classic TV series like “Good Times,” “The Jeffersons,” “Family Matters” and “Wanda Vision” to name a few and I was dying laughing. To my surprise we had an actual audience in the house, with Snoop...

Golden Globes Debacle What Does It All Mean?

HOLLYWOOD—Wow, I was just blown away to hear about the news involving the Golden Globes not being aired by NBC for 2022. For as long as I’ve been immersed in the entertainment industry NBC has been a staple for airing the ceremony, but amidst controversy as exposed by the Los Angeles Times with its lack of Black members it...
