A lot of little buzz jumped up on my reviews about this Sundance winner. Not realizing it was a New York movie as well as filmed in Black and White. I had no expectations whether good or bad, but slightly more excited because it was written, stared and directed in this debut movie. here's the synopses.
A down-on-her-luck playwright thinks the only way she can salvage her voice as an artist is to become a rapper at 40.
With all of the nonsense going on, we talk about the humor and information that is out and the people who are looking at any reason to rebel using free rights and civil liberties as the excuse. But in the end there is no humor in racism and debating anyone who doesn’t understand there is privilege for some more than others. Also what's your thought about Black people with guns who just wants to protect them selves?
Not really thinking this would be worth the look. We decided to give Issa and Kumail a try since it is on Neflix

Looking at the previews for this new TV series, I wasn't sure if this would be something I would find entertaining. But here's the catch, Its about dying and your consciences is uploaded into a virtual reality. Only if you can pay for the everlasting life. Made me go Hmmm, so I invited Alicia to watch it with me. Also as a added bonus, It was from Greg Daniels the creator of The Office, Parks and Recreation
Since it’s summer there are a few comedies that are being released that usually standout for the year. This one we thought would be one of them so went went out to see this new buddy film (cop/ civilian) trying to catch some bad guys in California.

This week Alicia and I went to support Black movies and Issa Rae for her new feature film about a black woman entrepreneur that bullies everyone until she is reversed into her old self and has to face the world as child under the same conditions. Not my normal film would go to see but this one seemed a lot more interesting.
Amazing short Netflix series about a woman for some reason keeps dying on the day of her birthday. The humorous ways she dies and the way she tries not to die takes you on a crazy trip into this Russian Jewish woman in New York. Very diverse with the characters as well as clever clever dialogue. Absolutely worth seeing. Here's my Review.
This movie wasn't actually on my list to see, to talk about or to even mention. But when we were hit with all of the critically acclaimed reviews as well as an Oakland story written and directed by African Americans and Hispanics. I had to give it a go. A very humorous, heartfelt drama that will hopefully make you think about the day to day struggles of anyone trying to remove stigmas from their identity. ANd struggle to try to do the right thing in a very hard environment.

This independent movie made by rapper Boots Riley from the rap group "The Coup". Was something Alicia and I saw previews on it and couldn't wait to see. This strange and controversial movie is a strong commentary on labor and social interactions in our society today. It takes a turn towards the end but we left the theater with a good feeling about this creative well acted movie that critics are really ranting about.
Today, in-between the so called summer movie blockbusters. We decide to check out a comedy. Something that seemed to be interesting and funny at the same time. Tag, a true story about childhood friends that take one month out of the year to play the childs game of Tag with grown adults.Previews were somewhat hilarious so we took a chance.
One month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running for a no-holds-barred game of tag -- risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take one another down. This time, the game coincides with the wedding of the only undefeated player. What should be an easy target soon becomes an all-out war as he knows they're coming to get him
