Bawn TV never fails to deliver quality content. The dramas, movies, series, and projects on the network’s platforms continues to grow; the latest of these being its new movie, District, loosely based on Tyson Anthony’s novel, Hood Goods.

As you may already know, District began as a web series starring Brandon Anthony and Tami Roman, however, after a “tift” between Tami and production the series scrapped and made into a film. We have to say this was a surprising move on behalf of Bawn TV, but definitely an appropriate one.

 District tells the story of Miller (Brandon Anthony) a young man who grew up in the projects and had to raise himself after his mother (Tami Roman) was incarcerated after defending him from his abusive father.

Miller is strong, independent, and compassionate, but has a weakness for his friend, Trayvon (Jeffery Erskine), a crack addict. On top of all this drama, Miller seeks to find a way out of the projects with a little help from less than savory friends.

Overall District could have easily been one of the greatest web series ever produced, and we hate to see it end. (Is a recast possible?) Brandon, Tami, and Jeffery are all amazing actors, and this story hits a little too close to home if you are gay and stuck in inner city life. Still, it is definitely award worthy and even more interesting is Brandon Karson’s role in the film. We do not want to give anything away, but you have NEVER seen him in a role like this one. It is a true testament to his growth as an actor and his rising star power. You can see District subscribing to for yourself by Bawn TV. Happy viewing!

[MOVIE TRAILER] Woody & Buzz Lightyear Are BACK! Pixar Drops Official Trailer for “Toy Story 4!” (@toystory)

Our inner child is leaping with joy as Pixar has dropped the first official movie trailer for Toy Story 4! The toys we have grown to love for nearly twenty-five years are BACK for another big adventure with the familiar faces of everyone’s favorite cowboy, Woody (Tom Hanks), and Space action figure, Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen). This time around Woody is playing hero to the newest toy, “Sporky,” created by his new owner Bonnie. Sporky is determined he was meant to be “just a spork” and opts to run away with Woody in tow, not wanting Bonnie’s heart broken. He unwittingly stumbles across a tribe of lost toys led by his old friend, Bo Peep (Annie Potts)! It is mayhem as Buzz and the other toys search for Woody and Sporky, while the latter tries to decide if he would rather remain a lost toy.

We have to say we are extremely happy to see Toy Story 4 on the horizon. We really wish it was a weekly series–wishful thinking, we know. Still, we love the trailer and this may very well be their biggest adventure yet.

Annie Potts as “Bo Peep”

The film seems to run off the same motif of girl power as so many films have over the last couple of years with the return of Bo Peep SAVING Woody no less. We often wondered what happened to her between the second and third Toy Story films. Fanfare alleged she was either broken by Andy’s (the toys’ former owner) sister or simply given away. The trailer, however, alludes she was lost and seems to be thriving, however.

Toy Story 4 hits theaters nationwide this summer on June 21, 2019!

[TRAILER] “A Whole New World!” Disney Drops New Trailer for “Aladdin!” (@disneyaladdin)

Disney has a certified hit with this live action adaptation of its classic, animated film, Aladdin! The Mickey Mouse company dropped a new trailer for the film and even the most die hard fans are ecstatic! As you recall, the film has been met with a number of casting controversies namely with Will Smith’s portrayal of The Genie of The Lamp. The new trailer has everyone rethinking their stance on Smith’s casting as now we have scene the character in full CGI. Then there’s a glimpse of the magic carpet ride scene with Aladdin (Mena Massoud) and Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) singing “A Whole New World!”

From the trailer we can tell this is definitely a musical, and perhaps it will be adapted from the hit Broadway adaptation of Aladdin, instead of being solely from the animated film. Either way the scenes are breathtaking and Will Smith looks amazing as a blue genie. For awhile there we were not sure if we would get to see him blue-skinned and animated. Alas, we forgot Disney’s pockets and animation expertise is bar none.

[REVIEW] Marvel’s “Captain Marvel”(@captainmarvel) is a Superhuman Punch for Women Everywhere!

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has expanded to include a new superhero, or super-heroine, we should say with the addition of Captain Marvel! Captain Marvel is unlike any hero the MCU has introduced us before, and is perhaps the hero needed to turn the tide after the events of Avengers: Infinity War. The film, set in the nineties enters on air force pilot, Carol Danvers (Brie Larson). Carol is stubborn, independent, headstrong– and amnesiac– finding herself caught in a war between two intergalactic empires, The blue-skinned humanoids, The Kree, and The Skrulls, a green-skinned race of shape-shifters. Carol, as “Captain Marvel,” must find a way to end the war, master her powers, and in the process piece together her long-lost past.

Captain Marvel is definitely worth watching! It is a superhuman punch for feminism and much needed diversity in the superhero genre. Sure, as Captain Marvel, Carol is very powerful, but her ingenuity, bravery, and determination are all innate traits she possesses–traits needed by all women to blaze their own “marvelous” path in this world. More so, we see different types of heroes in this film from refugees battling terrorism to a single mother risking her life to help her friend and save the world. We even see a future superhero–someone we will tell you about in a later post! You all just be sure to catch Captain Marvel in theaters everywhere this Friday nationwide!

Grade: A-

What We Liked

captain marvel movie poster

-The special effects of this film are truly “interstellar!” From the costumes  and space battles all the way up to how Captain Marvel displayed her powers are Grade A!

-Her buddy relationship with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). The two made quite the dynamic duo!

-The twist in The Skrulls’ story line and backstory. We will not spoil it for you, but we can say nothing is as it seems.

-The Supreme Intelligence’s appearance and abilities. The film did and excellent job of transcribing that entity from the comics to the film.

-The after credits scenes! There are two of them! Captain Marvel will definitely be in Avengers: Endgame!

-The twist on Mar-Vell–we aren’t spoiling that one!

 

What We Loved

maria rambeau and captain marvel

Lashana Lynch and Brie Larson as “Maria Rambeau” and “Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel”

-The girl power in this film! We saw not only a female superhero, but female scientists, rebels, warriors, air force pilots, and even a single mother risking it all to save the planet!

-Carol Danvers’ best friend, Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch), is a hero in her own right. She and Carol are truly sisters and she has her back so hard that she’s willing to help her fight in space. She’s also a single mother and a dark-skinned Black woman–come thru inclusivity!

-The appearance of Monica Rambeau! (Akira Akbar) Monica is destined to become a superhero as well, and for awhile will use the name, “Captain Marvel,” as well–at least that is what she is in the comics.

-The tribute to Stan Lee at the beginning. RIP to a real superhero.

-The movie pieces together the MCU timeline. If you’re planning to watch the films chronologically, then this film would fall second, nearly fifty years after the first Captain America film.

-The message every woman needs to hear–never give up. Carol refuses to give up no matter the odds or how many times she falls. She has nothing to prove other than she can do it all!

What We Hated

-The film begins slow, but we imagine piecing together the backstory of an amnesiac woman with super powers is no easy feat
