DA -5 - BLOODS (Netflix)

Since we are Spike Lee fans but lately we have been a bit cautious of his recent releases.  We didn't run out to see his Netflix release about 5 black men from the Vietnam war going back tot he country to recover a fallen brothers remains.  After Black KKKlansman we thought we would give this one a try since that was made a lot better than his other previous releases

Extraction (Netflix)

So this movie on Netflix is number 1 in the nation. Mixed reviews about no story, too much violence, blah, blah, blah. But I’m bored and wanted to see some stuff blown up. And your boy Thor is on here (Chris Hemsworth). Since he got back into shape. Why not show him some love.

Another Netflix foreign film, and this one is from Poland.  Not many movies or shows I've seen come out of Poland but this one seemed like something worth while seeing.  This is the summary.  After a body is found sewn inside of a cow hide.  A local detective discovers a killer is recreating an 18th century "plague" of criminal punishments on a bunch of bad people.  Now, does this sound like something we have seen before?

The Decline (Netflix)

A fatal accident at a remote survivalist training camp sends participants into a panic - and sets the stage for a chilling showdown. Sounds good don’t it. Or does it. Well It starts off like a bunch of regular anarchist learning to survive out in the wilderness until some real f’ed up stuff happens and the main protagonist freakin dies. So how does this end? Its in French so the intensity of watching this closer is recommended. A Canadian movie as well

Today being stuck in the house, Alicia and I find the best African American (or Black, your preference) movies worth watching during your “Shelter in place” time. And even if you have to work and have a little time. These are some quality movies you can check out. In no specific order: also the Banker is on Apple TV

The Banker

Self Made - the Madam C.J Walker story

The invisible man 2020

We et out to check out a movie that seemed so intriguing that we had to see it on the opening day. With Elizabeth Moss leading the cast, (we love her) we had to see this remake of the classic HG Wells novel.

A continuation of the Suicide squad saga.  We wanted  to see Margot Robbie in another one of her amazing roles.  Not being a big DC fan but hoping this would be better especially with out Will Smith.  Here's our take on this funny and exciting spin off

1917 (2020)

During World War I, two British soldiers -- Lance Cpl. Schofield and Lance Cpl. Blake -- receive seemingly impossible orders. In a race against time, they must cross over into enemy territory to deliver a message that could potentially save 1,600 of their fellow comrades -- including Blake's own brother.  This is what we saw as we sat down to check out this epic War movie by Sam Mendes

Alicia and I go out to see the last of the Skywalker saga or series and me. I really didn’t expect this to be better than the previous one because of the weak release prior to this. But we came in with open minds and surprisingly it gave us a good ending to the Star Wars saga.
