QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Are you heading out to see André Øvredal’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark this weekend? Did you read the book and did you have a favorite story?
MOVIES WATCHED THIS WEEK
“Two young boys encounter a fugitive and form a pact to help him evade the vigilantes that are on his trail and to reunite him with his true love.”
I enjoyed this but I didn’t see the amazing performance from Matthew McConaughey like I have read about. It wasn’t bad but not anything different from him that we haven’t seen before. The young kid Ty Sheridan did a solid job and I thought this did a good job of not slipping into some candy cotton romance story. It was a little silly at the end. Worth a watch though. (3.5/5)
Black Dynamite (2009)
“Black Dynamite is the greatest African-American action star of the 1970’s. When his only brother is killed by The Man, it’s up to him to find justice.”
This started off a little rough for me and then there was this moment where Tommy Davidson was getting his weave done where it sky rocketed into an extremely entertaining romp of a Blaxploitation parody that had me rolling. Everyone played their part really well and it felt like watching a bad movie from the 70’s. My favorite Michael Jai White performance ever. (4/5)
Black Panther (2018)
“T’Challa, heir to the hidden but advanced kingdom of Wakanda, must step forward to lead his people into a new future and must confront a challenger from his country’s past.”
I still enjoy this movie especially Killmonger’s story and Michael B. Jordan’s portrayal. He stood out even more to me with this rewatch and had me invested above everything else. It is a gorgeous movie and the soundtrack thumps. (4/5)
SHOWS WATCHED THIS WEEK
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 13
There aren’t too many TV shows that have the ability just as good if not better in their 13th season now days that aren’t animated, but Sunny just continues to remain fresh and and hilarious in different ways. They are able to hit on today’s social issues without being preachy at all while poking fun at their own characters. I highly recommend this series if you haven’t watched yet.
