Movie Review – Crown Heights

Director: Matt Ruskin Starring: Lakeith Stanfield, Nnamdi Asomugha, Natalie Paul Year: 2017 I saw Nnamdi Asomugha’s name attached to this film as a producer, and I simply assumed that he fronted the money for a film that he was passionate about, a story about black men and over-incarceration and racial justice that he felt inspired

Movie Review – Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Director: Matthew Vaughn Starring: Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong Year: 2017 I was shocked that I liked the first Kingsman so much, and I still have trouble recommending this movie to friends.  They don’t believe that it’s good, despite its success and its high ratings; they just can’t get past the fact that it

Movie Trailer – November Criminals

Director: Sacha Gervasi Starring: Ansel Elgort, Chloe Grace Moretz Release: November 7th, 2017 I’m tired of all these YA novels making their way on screens, dragging themselves along although they were dead before they even started.  I hate to chop down a genre, but these books aren’t actually good, they’re just catchy, and so we
