Re: “Fresh air

Local band Manchester Orchestra, who provided the soundtrack, probably would have appreciated a shout-out.

Re: “‘Key and Peele’ leap into action in ‘Keanu’

Did anyone really think a comedic biopic about the guy from The Matrix would be funny or successful?

Re: “Nina Simone’s beautiful struggle overshadowed by white gaze

Maybe the film would have been received better had they left off the darkening makeup for Zoë Saldana and just let her be the actress she is. She might have been comfortable enough to give a better performance.

Re: “Nina Simone’s beautiful struggle overshadowed by white gaze

"Nina Simone was sometimes titled “the high priestess of soul”, although she completely rejected the title herself, because it placed a label on her as an artist."

Re: “Nina Simone’s beautiful struggle overshadowed by white gaze

I look forward to the eventual biopic on Zoe Saldana that centers on how she was heavily criticized for having the wrong skin tone.

Re: “Review: Eat Pray Love

I have seen the movie. It was not Julia greatest acting but it was never the less a good film she made. I believe, the audience was not in to the film.

Re: “‘Quarter Life’ finds the funny in being single working millennial in Atlanta

This sounds a lot like that web series on Myspace/NBC back in 2008. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarterlife

I loved this series and was sad when it ended. Can't wait to see their version.

Re: “‘Quarter Life’ finds the funny in being single working millennial in Atlanta

Slacker stereotype? We work more hours, have more college debt, and earn less money than any previous generation, and for the first time in this country are projected to be worse off in our lives than the previous generation.

Re: “‘Quarter Life’ finds the funny in being single working millennial in Atlanta

The pair started an Indiegogo campaign to fund the project....ah, I miss the good ole days when if someone wanted to do something, start a business, etc, they had to use their own money, get a second or third job, get a loan, steal from mom and dad, etc.

Re: “2015 Holiday Movie Preview

"Well-off Carol (Cate Blanchett) seeks a divorce from her seething husband (Kyle Chandler), who’s willing to use any means to bring her to heel."

Meanwhile, shopgirl Therese (Rooney Mara) bristles at the presumptions of the men in her life, who are superficially nice but disrespectful of her opinions."
_________________________________________________________________________

"Carol" sounds like an interesting movie with shades of "Thelma and Louise".

Re: “Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls is poetry without motion

What always amazes me about some individuals is the level of ignorance and consciousness of topics they possess demonstrated in their speech. This movie was not a male bashing movie and it was not a movie depicting the insignificance of men and surely does not highlight the viewpoint of white men either. Anyone who feels this way clearly missed the premise of this piece. This movie paid homage to Ntozake Shange For Colored Girls who considered suicide when the rainbow isn't enuff. If you read her work and totally understood the ideologies, barriers, and plights of each of the women you would understand why the film was directed the way it was. There are too many people who lack the background knowledge of this powerful piece hence the reactions.

Re: “‘Spotlight’ pays compelling tribute to in-depth reporting

This is not a 5-star film. I think the subject matter, incredibly compelling, yes, and the level of talent working on this project has people not clearly judging the film on its own merits. This is not on par with truly great films such as All the President's Men.
It simply did not suck me in and create the tension needed to elevate this film to greatness. A film like this, when you already know what happened, to really work, has to have you on the edge of your seat, despite your knowledge, wondering what is going to happen. It actually felt more like a documentary.
With that said, it is a good film, you should see it, and it probably wins the Oscar as the subject matter is without a doubt, fat, juicy Oscar bait.
