Kumbayah… The Juneteenth Story

Kumbayah… The Juneteenth StoryFor too many Black Americans, the real meaning of Juneteenth gets lost between the satisfying of ones appetite for good food and company, followed by the pouring of Spirits to top off the annual commemoration. Every June, we're ready for the celebration, but do all of us know why we've come together and do we know the real history behind its significance? No. So quite like the hour before our captivity, even now we're still eclipsed by the same blindfolded journey: they had no knowledge of the road they were going, and many of us know not of the road we've been.

Lost souls’ lives intersect in serendipitous erotic thriller

Lost souls’ lives intersect in serendipitous erotic thrillerThey used to call New York the Naked City, but maybe L.A. deserves that suggestive sobriquet, judging by the goings-on in Powder Blue, an alternately thought-provoking and erotic thriller written and directed by Timothy Linh Bui.

Emotionally-barren sequel plagued by lack of character development

Emotionally-barren sequel plagued by lack of character development When you decide to shoot a Terminator sequel sans Schwarzenegger (sorry, a cameo of Arnold‘s head atop a body double doesn’t count), and with an entirely new cast, you might want to consider devoting some quality time to character development in order to give your audience a chance to become familiar with and, thus, reason to care about the protagonists. Otherwise you’ll probably end up with a superficial, sci-fi saga like Terminator Salvation (T-4), a special effects indulgence in fight sequences, chase scenes, pyrotechnics and techno wizardry at the expense of emotional depth.

Book review: “First Dog”

Book review: “First Dog”What do you do when you’ve lost something and you need to find it quick?

The first thing you probably do is holler for your Mom. She usually knows where everything is.

Then you start looking in your room, beneath your bed, in your closet, in your toybox, under the table, between the sofa cushions and anywhere you think you might have lost whatever it is you’re looking for. Eventually, you find it in the perfect hiding place for things like that.
