Dolemite is my Name honors the late Rudy Ray Moore

Dolemite Is My Name is a raw, dirty comedy with some nudity and plenty of foul language. If you are going to be bothered by this don’t watch. Otherwise Rudy’s transformation and journey are full of laughs, absurd moments, and some inspirational ones as well. Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Wesley Snipes are both great in supporting roles.

Fractured wastes no time getting to the mystery

Fractured gets to the mystery almost immediately. You know something is off but it’s hard to judge what it is and when it started. It does a good job of giving you a hint then making you second guess. I was upset by the result at the end but I enjoyed the ride. 

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (review)

I liked it. They were able to tie up some loose ends and bring back that signature Breaking Bad style. I’d imagine most fans of the show were pleased, even if they weren’t blown away. It does nothing to take away from the show which was my main concern.

Someone Great Review: Romantic Dramedy?

Someone Great has a lot of very deep, very real, and moving moments throughout. While the drug use was a bit much for me the chemistry between the ladies and the themes that are addressed in the movie made it a solid watch. 

The Silence review: I’ve seen this movie before

There are a lot of minor goofy flaws that make The Silence hard to enjoy on top of the similarities to other recent films. Overall, it’s not as good as A Quiet Place but still has some tense moments to make it watchable.

Netflix’s first Nollywood film: Lionheart Review

Though the story itself is familiar, there is a certain power to the story being told from another perspective. It was also great to see a side of Africa represented in this film that most don’t have the opportunity to see. I also need to see more Genevieve Nnaji in the years to come. 

Netflix Review: IO

It’s an isolation movie and isolation movies are a great way to dive deep into a character and make the audience live and die with their every move. IO did not do that and by the end I really didn’t care what happened to either of our two characters. The “twists” were obvious and held no weight. I don’t know what I was supposed to get from it. 

Velvet Buzzsaw review: It doesn’t speak to me

I am a huge Jake Gyllenhaal fan and supporter so when I saw he had a movie coming out on Netflix I marked my calendar. I’m also a horror fan so combining these two worlds meant Velvet Buzzsaw was sure to be a big hit for me. 

I was wrong. 

Netflix Review: Ozark

Ozark is like Breaking Bad if the pace was tripled . . . and I think I’m being modest. There is not a single wasted episode in the series. Bad decisions have almost instantaneous consequences. As soon as you think you know where things are going you’re hit with another surprise. On top of this the performances by everyone in the cast are gripping. You’ll want to talk about this show with people.
