All American Episode 10 RECAP: “m.A.A.d city”

I loved this week’s episode of All American. First, let’s give props to the title — any Kendrick Lamar fans out there?! A lot happens in the series and it takes a while for me to process everything because I don’t want to miss out on sharing my opinion on certain situations. Usually, I worry for Spencer’s well-being but this week he emerged as a crusader, if you will, for his community. He brought attention to the age-old problem African Americans have been facing within our own neighborhoods for years: gang violence. Nowadays it feels like young folks use guns […]

Wildly Addictive: TNT’s ‘I Am the Night’ — A Patty Jenkins and Chris Pine Collaboration

Revered Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has long been a connoisseur of a good story. However, never did she anticipate a story of this magnitude when she met Fauna Hodel for coffee roughly 10 years ago. At their meetup, a then 50-something-year-old Fauna unraveled a story that was truly unbelievable. If you’re not from California, chances are you won’t be familiar with the Hodel name. Fauna was the granddaughter to the infamous Los Angeles physician George Hodel, who in 1949 was accused and acquitted of molesting his 14-year-old daughter Tamar (Fauna’s mother), as well as being linked to the most […]

That isn’t quite true when it comes to the film Johnny English Strikes Again. The digital age leads to modern problems, and when a villain steals the identities of all of Britain’s active undercover agents, the government must look to former agents to find the culprit. Their ultimate choice is none other than a man who once was an agent but now is a schoolteacher, Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson). English is […]

First. Rarely do we remember who was second to anything. Super Bowl winners are often remembered, but the team that lost in the Super Bowl? We all know Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball, but few know Larry Doby was the second (he was, look it up). In the film First Man, we see life unfold through the first to walk on the surface of the moon. Most people are aware that Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) was the first man to walk on the surface of the moon. But what made Armstrong tick? What were his […]
