10 Thoughts About “All Eyez On Me”, Both A Day Late and a Dollar Short

I finally saw All Eyez On Me, the Tupac Shakur biopic that’s been years in the making after a bunch of fits and starts. It was pretty universally panned by critics, but I loves me a good bad Black movie so a bad review is like catnip to a thug. Also, I’m a big fan of Tupac so there’s almost no way that I wasn’t going to see the film in theaters. With that being said, here are 10 thoughts about the movie, in no particular order. 1. It wasn’t a good movie; it wasn’t a bad movie. It was the best...

The 2017 Black Girl's Guide To Summer Movies

The quintessential movie for Black girls hasn't even been made yet. It's obviously the upcoming film with Lupita Nyong'o and Rihanna. I'm prepared to argue about this.

‘All Eyez on Me’ Trailer: Tupac Shakur Walks the Line

Hollywood perfected the biopic template with dozens of movies based on the lives of famous country, pop, and rock musicians. Now, that template has reached hip-hop and it continues to work like a charm. Following in the footsteps of 2009’s Notorious and 2015’s Straight Outta Compton, All Eyez on Me looks to bring the life of rapper Tupac Shakur to the big screen. Despite the shift in genre, this movie looks very much like a cousin of movies like Ray and Walk the Line, for better and for worse. ...

All Eyez On Me Trailer Gives Inside Look At Tupac's Rise To Fame

Someday, someone is going to make a great movie about rappers. Maybe it's because the art form is so new, or maybe it's because the film industry is still dominated by stodgy white guys who reached maturity before hip-hop's 1990s golden age, but we have yet to see the rap version of, say, Walk the Line.Straight out of Compton was an interesting movie with a decent cast but never truly sang in the way that it ought to have. Perhaps that's because the movie's principles were so closely involved, ...
