Death to 2020 Review

Review: Netflix’s ‘Death to 2020’

Watch Death to 2020 for a laugh and for an appreciation of some fantastic comedians. But don't expect it to make you feel any better, worse, or anything else, about this year.

Review: Amazon Prime’s ‘Mangrove’

Although it takes place half a century ago, Mangrove feels relatable in its political relevance and its personal narratives. Come for the story, stay for the unexpected sense of hope that it brings.
Bad Hair Movie Review

Review: Hulu’s ‘Bad Hair’ Takes “Beauty is Pain” to a New Level

Rather than a stereotypical horror film, Bad Hair is an entertaining manifestation of the unrealistic and unfair beauty standards Black women are expected to uphold.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 Movie Review

Review: Netflix’s ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’

The Trial of the Chicago 7 entertains and challenges, stimulating both the heart and the mind. Whether your take-away is a powerful storytelling experience or a new lens through which to view present-day America, you'll most certainly gain something from watching.

Netflix’s ‘Hubie Halloween’ Review

Hubie Halloween is a goodmovie to put on in the background while at the dentist--it's not  great but the sporadic funny moment will keep you entertained for the time being.
