Monday's here already?
Of course, the world was shocked by the news that Chadwick Boseman, star of Black Panther, passed away after a 4-year fight with Colon cancer. During those 4 years, he not only starred in several movies...he starred in several action movies that required so much physically. I was shocked it never leaked out that he was sick, and I was more shocked his ability to pull off the physicality needed to be The Black Panther. Prayers to his family and hopefully this reminds people just how important is to get checked. Colon cancer doesn't play around...
My 2 cents...I don't think they recast Black Panther. Instead, I think they will hand over the mantle of the Black Panther to his sister. This will allow the character to continue and pay respect to Boseman's tremendous portrayal of the protector of Wakanda.
Before he was introduced as Black Panther, Boseman was in a movie we were told to dismiss. However, I found Gods of Egypt to be a fun and enjoyable blockbuster movie. Yes, it is crazy a$$. Yet somehow it achieves what these types of movies are supposed to do...entertain the audience. You can catch it for free on VUDU free and Peacock.
If you haven't checked it out yet, Project Power is another one of those big blockbuster type movies. Big stars in a big story with big special effects worthy of a summer blockbuster, Project Power is perfect for surround sound and a bucket of popcorn.
The story is pretty straight-forward:
When a pill that gives its users unpredictable superpowers for five minutes hits the streets of New Orleans, a teenage dealer and a local cop must team with an ex-soldier to take down the group responsible for its creation.
And the main actors play it perfectly. This is a fun movie worth the watch...
If big explosions aren't your thing, I'd like to offer you a thoughtful science fiction movie. Also on Netflix, Safety Not Guaranteed is a thinking man's science fiction movie. With a small budget and an all-star cast, this movie is about questioning your belief, finding your story, and a leap of faith.
A man, who claims to have time-traveled once before, puts an ad in the paper. Three people from a newspaper go to find him and write his story. Along the way, they begin to question their truths and begin to open to the possibility that there just might be more out there...
Finally, if foul-mouthed failures in the middle of Kentucky are more to your liking...then check out Hoops. Jake Johnson voices the main character Ben Hopkins, a High School basketball coach living in his famous father's shadow and making all the wrong decisions as he tries to make a name for himself. If you are a fan of animation or cursing...this might be your new favorite show.
Check out the trailer for my 2nd Novel The Pope Lick Massacre. The reviews are coming...check out the tale that people are calling
a "Great Monster Story", "Lurid and Confusing", "Fun", and "Suspenseful".
