  • American Trial: The Eric Garner Story

    American Trial: The Eric Garner Story

    ★★★★

    "I can't breathe."

    Well, this takes on a whole new significance today doesn't it? So much for "Minnesota Nice," huh? Rest in power, George Lloyd.

    Of course, Mr. Lloyd yelling and choking in his last moments of life would have happened independently of the murder of Eric Garner 6 years ago, but it helps serve as a stark reminder that not only have we a long way to go, we haven't actually gone anywhere. Because it was only in 2014…

  • 4 Little Girls

    4 Little Girls

    ★★★★½

    "And finally it struck us that we didn't see Addie."

    The history of America is the history of white supremacy.

    In 1619, 20 Africans were brought to Virginia for labor on the White Lion. Not as slaves, but indentured servants, a common practice for the next two centuries for white immigrants alike. But when one of those men, John Punch, was given a penalty of lifelong slavery for an indiscretion, so began the lurch towards black suppression simply because the…

    Lance

    ★★★

    "Do you want to be relevant again?"
    "This is gonna sound terrible, but I am relevant."

    If you look up "unreliable narrator," you'll see a picture of Lance Armstrong from this new ESPN 30 for 30 documentary entry.

    One of the strangest films ESPN has ever produced, and exactly the kind of documentary that absolutely none of us needed -- but I guess exactly what we deserve -- Lance yet again tells the story of the eponymous athlete whose career…

  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    ★★★½

    "But he isn't… there's something missing."

    Assured that this sci-fi horror was not really a horror movie and moreso one of paranoia and fear, I accepted its choice as the next Daily Mosh Film Club pick.

    Don Siegel's Invasion of the Body Snatchers is just far enough from goofy 50s science-fiction that I absolutely got into this. A genre which I have no interest in normally, but here Siegel spins a noir thriller out of a wild story of chaos…

  • Frozen II

    Frozen II

    ★★

    The screen glows white in the theatre tonight
    Not a cellphone to be seen
    A film devoid of imagination
    And it needs to be in quarantine

    My face is scowling like a raging storm inside
    Couldn't make it good, heaven knows they tried

    Don't let them in, don't let them see
    Be the good film Frozen I was to me
    Raw deal, this reel, don't let them know
    Well, now they know

    Don't you go, don't you go
    Can't say…

  • Gemini Man

    Gemini Man

    Now, this is a movie all about how
    Will Smith got cloned by a man of renown.
    And I'd like to take a minute, just sit with me,
    I'll tell you how he became de-aged in a film by Ang Lee.

    In west of some laboratory, born and raised,
    In a test tube was where he spent most of his days.
    Chillin' out, maxin', assassinatin' a fool,
    And all shootin' some people to graduate from school,
    When a couple of…
