Review: Da 5 Bloods (2020)
Da 5 Bloods was a surprise [to me] Spike Lee release. In fact, I hadn’t heard anything about it until it was released on Netflix over the summer, and knew very little until Chadwick Boseman passed away and everyone was talking about his role in the film. Unfortunately, Lee’s latest — released solely on the streaming service and now featuring Boseman’s image on the poster — is mainly a disappointment.
Review: Harriet (2019)
We have waited a long time for a full-length film biopic on Harriet Tubman to be released, and unfortunately, we may have to wait a little bit longer for a great one. This film, simply titled Harriet (which is fine) and directed by Kasi Lemmons, shows Harriet from the beginnings of her freedom from slavery (including a brief glimpse into her plantation life) through her amazing work on the Underground Railroad.
Review: Maleficient: Mistress of Evil (2019)
Honestly, this film — the sequel to Maleficent, which I actually enjoyed — was hardly on my radar. When I saw the trailer, I was surprised that there was a sequel, but also semi-interested in seeing legends Angelina Jolie and Michele Pfeiffer go toe to toe.
