History is truly the story of mankind at large. It marks our greatest triumphs and our darkest tragedies. One of the greatest moments in human history occurred during the sixties, when after centuries of slavery, and decades of legalized discrimination, segregation was outlawed and African-Americans dared to fight for the right to vote.

The battleground was Selma, Alabama on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. On one side were Civil Rights leaders and the other state troopers, determined to stop their fifty mile march/protest from Selma to Montgomery.

 

Selma Movie (1)

The movie, Selma, documents the events surrounding the historic march; told from the point of view of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (David Oyelowo), and based on FBI files declassified during the passage of the Freedom of Information Act. The film showcases his struggle with nonviolence and the brutality committed against those who dared to share his dream. You have seen the old footage of dogs, brutal cops, water hoses, and bodies in the street; but you have never seen it like this. Every scene of murder, violence, and oppression will make your eyes water–sometimes with rage–at what thousands endured so that future millions would have a better life. In addition to a history recap, you find out some interesting in information about The Kings and the current whereabouts of those (good and bad) involved in  Bloody Sunday and the March On Montgomery in Selma. Directed by Ava DuVernay, and produced by Oprah Winfrey, this film will do more than touch your heart, it will empower and embolden it!

I rarely get emotional over films. However, with the current and growing racial crisis stirring in our country this movie could not have come at a better time. Until the last two years, we all lived in a bubble of what was perceived uneasy, but accepted racial equality and felt relatively safe. Now we are reminded that now, just like then, injustice is always present and must be always fought. Take your children, drag your friends, organize your church members. Selma  is coming and things just will not be the same again!

You can catch Selma in theaters in limited release on Christmas Day; and in theaters everywhere on January 9, 2015.

November is going to be one epic month! Not only are we treated to seeing the Justice League, an epic superhero movie, but one that stars five of DC Comics’ greatest heroes–Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, and Aquaman–as they band together to protect the Earth from an alien invasion.

This invasion, however, is from Apokolips, a dark world, ruled by a darker lord. The first wave of the invasion is led by Steppenwolf, a “new god,” bent on the destruction/subjugation of Earth.

When we last saw our heroes, Batman and Wonder Woman had just helped Superman defeat Doomsday at the cost of the latter’s life. Inspired by Superman and finding his faith in humanity once again, Batman allies himself with Wonder Woman to recruit the others in an attempt to save the planet.

Now, we have to admit the Justice League does seem a bit incomplete without Superman, but the latest trailer from the film hints that the Man of Steel may be making at the very least a surprise appearance. We can see from the trailer, not only Steppenwolf, but a horde of Parademons–demonic shock troopers designed to overwhelm their enemies and overtake whole worlds. Our heroes do not seem like they will be alone, however, as it looks like Wonder Woman’s Amazonian sisters will be coming to her aide as well. This will indeed be a class of the titans as a Dark Knight, Goddess of Truth, Crimson Speedster, a living computer, and a Sea King join forces to literally stop Hell on Earth!

You can catch the Justice League in theaters everywhere on Friday, November 17, 2017!

On the morning of Election Day 2016, Americans of all stripes woke up and went about living their radically different lives. These were the hours leading up to Donald Trump’s unexpected, earth-shaking victory, but, of course, no one knew that yet.

With 11/8/16, producer/creator Jeff Deutchman’s second installment in his election film series, viewers are afforded a uniquely cinematic look at the chaotic glory of American democracy from sea to shining sea.

Featuring footage captured by a carefully curated group of some of America’s finest documentary filmmakers, 11/8/16 follows sixteen subjects spanning the country’s geographic, socioeconomic and political divides through the course of that history-altering day. 11/8/16 was an election unlike any other. 11/8/16 brings us back to that day with the immediacy of great nonfiction filmmaking, and shows the vibrant directness how life happens as history is being made. 
We definitely remember this day all too well. For us it felt like we had been sucker punched. It definitely made us question the entire democratic process. As much as we personally wish Hillary Clinton had won, we know there’s no use in crying over spilled milk. I think at this point all we can do is make the best of the situation and figure out how best to survive/deal with Donald Trump’s regime. Resist, Resist, RESIST is our mantra for the United States’ current political climate.

Written and created by web star, actor, and screenwriter, Alex Jante (Steel River: When We Were Young), the film dares to be risque with its mix of sex and horror–something we all can get with as Halloween quickly approaches. We have known for quite some time now that this film was in the works as Alex revealed it in the interview we had with him earlier this year.

From what we see in the trailer, Uncle Joey star, Jaquay Wilkerson–and his body–are very much a part of the “action.” We cannot wait and will be sure to have a review up when it officially debuts on Friday, October 13th! Scary much? We hope so! You can pre-order the film now by clicking here! Happy viewing!
