The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen from Black Directors

(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. This week we give a nod towards Black History Month with a look at some of the best, little-seen films from black filmmakers.) Great films and filmmakers are worth celebrating all year round, but we live in a world that likes to categorize and quantify, meaning February has been designated as Black History Month (and Women in Horror month too f...

‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Brings Back All Four High School Kids for Another Game

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a surprisingly huge hit at the box office from the end of 2017 and into 2018. The half-sequel, half-reboot raked in over $962 million at the global box office, so another film was inevitable. But it wouldn’t be a proper sequel without a key part of the original cast, and for some reason their deals didn’t close until this week. Jumanji 2 (or Jumanji 3 for those keeping the real count) will arrive at the end of the year. While we don’t know how the sequel will ...

So long, sun dance! Robert Redford has us falling for his charms one last time, says BRIAN VINER 

The Old Man & The Gun (12A) Verdict: Whimsically engaging  Rating: Robert Redford gives what he has said will be his valedictory cinematic performance in the Old Man & The Gun, before shuffling, or at least walking with the purposeful but rather stiff gait of the codger he now inescapably is, into retirement. It appears that the great man, now 82, might backtrack on his plans to retire from acting.  But this is the perfect movie for his swansong, if swansong it proves to be, not least becau...

‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’ Review: A Poetic Tale of Gentrification and Friendship [Sundance]

At last year’s Sundance Film Festival, both Blindspotting and Sorry to Bother You weaved Oakland’s gentrification into their underlying stories. At this year’s fest, co-writer/director and fifth generation San Franciscan Joe Talbot addresses the subject in an even more direct way with his memorable debut film, The Last Black Man in San Francisco.  Jimmie (an excellent Jimmie Fails, who has a “story by” credit on the script and plays a character inspired by his own life) and Mont (a superb Jon...

Sanders Seems To Be Gearing Up For Second Shot At The Presidency

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — An insurgent underdog no more, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is laying the groundwork to launch a bigger presidential campaign than his first, as advisers predict he would open the 2020 Democratic presidential primary season as a political powerhouse. A final decision has not been made, but those closest to the 77-year-old self-described democratic socialist suggest that neither age nor interest from a glut of progressive presidential prospects would dissuade him from und...

Review: The Old Man and the Gun

— by RON WILKINSON — An actor with a career of the monumental success of Robert Redford has a lot of good work on which to expand. The old fashioned flimflammery of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” and its companion piece “The Sting” fit tightly with the genre of his latest movie. Less obvious […]

The 10 Best ’80s Action Movies

The 10 best 80s action movies Remember the ’80s? Between Stranger Things, It, Ready Player One, and even art-house pictures like the recent Mandy, everything seems to be steeped in ’80s nostalgia. While folks are quick to bring up nerdy references, there’s not as much talk about the fact that the ’80s had some of the greatest action movies ever made! Most were so successful, they’re still spawning reboots, remakes, and sequels to this very day. This was a time before CG explosions and animate...

My Back Hurts Just Thinking About The Return Of Inflatable Chairs

Whether it held decorative purple feathers or was emblazoned with Britney Spears’ name, it’s likely you or someone you know was the owner of an inflatable chair circa 1999. They were uncomfortable, but tolerable because, well, we were ten and they were sold at Limited Too and therefore the height of covetability. It was worth it. Plus, they matched super well with our lava lamp and beaded curtains. (Why a bunch of pre-teens had bedrooms decorated like a drug den in the back of a van at Woodstoc...

Why Are There So Few Action Franchises Led by Black Actors?

Quick, what’s your favorite action franchise (two films or more) starring a black lead? Without knowing your exact pick, I’m going to do a little prognosticating and guess that you’ve gone with an action/comedy. If I’m wrong, it’s either because you’re old and have chosen something from the ’70s or you’ve picked Blade . This week’s biggest new release sees the return of Denzel Washington’s Robert McCall in The Equalizer 2 , and not only is that good news for action fans – the movie’s a...

How ‘Sorry To Bother You’ Found (And Used) Its White Voice

The premise of director Boots Riley’s movie is the largely unearned success that the black characters gain when they use a “white voice.” And, as Danny Glover’s character tells his young telemarketing colleague, “I’m not talking Will Smith–white. I’m talking about the real deal” — meaning with dubbed-in dialogue spoken by white actors sounding their absolute whitest. Hunter Harris reports on how Riley came up with and implemented the idea.
