    Book Review: Lavish Art Abounds In The Art of The Croods

    There are two things a competently written art book should do: Give the reader an in-depth, inside look at how a film is created, and make one feel as if one is experiencing the world of the film without actually being in the theater.

    DVD/VOD Review - Chris Rock's 'Good Hair' Is Really An Ad For The Bronner Bros Hair Show

    I skipped this when it was in the theaters in 2009, after reading hearing about how empty, though funny, it was. At the time, there seemed to be plenty of mainstream media focus on *blackness*. It was the year that CNN debuted its Black In America series, and also there was a lot of attention being ...

    DVD/VOD Review - 'Gospel Hill' Is Promising, But Underwhelming

    Credit is due to director Giancarlo Esposito for attempting to generate discussion on the issues the film wants to bring to light, and some credit I'm giving to him, as well as his cast of veritable, tested talents, including the always earnest Angela Bassett as an iron-jawed grade school teacher, a...
