I have seen some movies over the years that I have had no interest in seeing simply because they were nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. Some of them I hadn’t liked and others I’ve been pleasantly surprised by. I don’t think there has ever been a movie that I went into despising the fact … More Vice


I think Spike Lee is a gifted filmmaker who has often been his own worst enemy when it comes to publicity. Without a doubt “Do the Right Thing” and “Malcolm X” are both great movies that should have been nominated for Best Picture and Best Director the years they came out. Spike Lee can also … More BlackKkKlansman

Green Book

A couple of weeks ago I went to see “Green Book”. My interest in the movie was so-so but since it is nominated for Best Picture it was a must see for me. “Green Book” is a good but not great movie. I have seen so many movies in my life. I love movies but … More Green Book

Early last year when “Black Panther” became a massive hit I was happy for it. I am glad it was commercially successfully because I know it represented something incredible in the history of … More Black Panther


I normally don’t blog about movies I see at home, but if a movie is nominated for major awards, I make an exception. Several weeks ago, I watched “Roma”. I have to say as much as I love the convince of watching a movie at home, I’m not a big fan that streaming movies have … More Roma

Bohemian Rhapsody

There are tons of bio-pics that I love. However, I know that they can also be incredibly inaccurate and whitewash what really happened.

When the film came out … More Bohemian Rhapsody

Ben is Back

On Christmas Day for the thirtieth year in a row I saw a movie. This streak began in 1989 with “Steel Magnolias” which was the film that earned Julia Roberts her first Oscar nomination. This year it was “Ben is Back” making it the sixth time my Christmas Movie has featured Julia Roberts. I wanted … More Ben is Back
