  • Black Panther

    Black Panther

    ★★★★★

    BLACK PANTHER is the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and is also one of the best films in the series. It is a deeply political film, focusing on racial and social injustice, globalism, and feminism in a way that resonates deeply. It is an emotionally powerful film, both deeply intimate and also incredibly fun. Featuring a flawless, almost entirely black cast of all-stars, BLACK PANTHER is unabashedly and beautifully Afrocentric.

As Barnum works against all odds to get his circus off the ground, he teams up with Phillip Carlyle (Zac Efron) to help his show appeal to the upper class. The film certainly takes some creative liberties with the actual story, but I didn’t have any problems with that. It’s a musical – creative liberties are expected.…

    The Cloverfield Paradox

    ★★★★

    Released on Netflix with virtually no fanfare or warning, THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX completely took audiences by surprise. The film’s teaser trailer promised viewers that it would provide answers to what caused the events of the first CLOVERFIELD film, and it certainly delivers on that promise. But while the ties to the CLOVERFIELD franchise do ultimately elevate the final product, the film’s main storyline is incredibly intriguing on its own.
