    It's a Sin


    I'm absolutely devastated.

    So many thoughts are running through my head after watching this. It is, without a doubt, the most painful story I've seen in a good while.

    I'm reminded of the privilege of having been able to see star Olly Alexander's band Years & Years (one of my favorites) live in concert a short while before this pandemic changed everything. I feel so very lucky for that privilege and not just because of it being a precious opportunity that鈥

    Take it from this seemingly perpetually snow-saddled Midwest-dweller, Barb and Star is a supremely welcome dose of sunny hysterical bliss courtesy of two very funny women who really get the good-natured folks of the heartland and especially what true friendship is all about. Plus: Jamie Dornan is even hotter / more likeable than you think and a tween star is born in Reyn Doi! You can't go wrong with it! Watch it if鈥

    Judas and the Black Messiah


    Simmering on a steadily increasing heat, Shaka King's throttling voyage into the Black Panther movement is haunting and indelibly memorable. Daniel Kaluuya, once again proving that he's operating on a whole other dimension, commands every ounce of his screentime with a determination that you can see battling the weariness of his Chairman's endlessly uphill war. It's a showstopping performance in a film worthy of his commitment. Lakeith Stanfield holds his own with Kaluuya, channeling anxiety that matches the wavelength of鈥

    Undeniably moving, this inspiring homage to the many Black women whose pivotal contributions to history have remained in the shadows for decades is a reverent portrait that certainly accomplishes its mission.

    I loved the trio at the heart of this and felt deeply invested in their journeys, rooting for them at every turn. That said, I couldn't shake the feeling that this film was not made by black voices. Things like white savior-leaning touches and the clear sugarcoating of the鈥

    Vampires vs. the Bronx


    Wholesome Latino and Black representation in a horror film. We love to see it!

    Vampires vs. the Bronx is much more than the latest Netflix flavor of the week. In it's modest way, this mainstream-friendly vamp-hunting jaunt is a big deal, not only because it is led by a trio of adorable kids who happen to be people of color, but because it also manages to imbue a dusty genre mainstay with a vitally urgent message that is very much鈥

    "You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned."

    As a young child, I would often look at massive estates that passed us by as I sat in the backseat of my parents' car during our leisurely drives and wonder what it would take to end up living in such fenced-in opulence. Since then, I still find myself taking the odd daydream stroll in these extravagant lifestyles.鈥
