Film: Spectre

Spectre wasn’t Skyfall, but it wasn’t awful. #24 in the franchise is about Bond’s past comes back to haunt him and he goes on a journey to track down a ghost. There are explosions, and there are cars, and there are women. Classic Bond (I think they’re done with that Heineken sponsorship deal – didn’t see a […]

Film: Beasts of no Nation

Beasts of no Nation is one of the best movies I have watched this year, hands down in my top two of the entire year. No one else has beaten Mad Max just yet and to be honest I don’t know if they can, Star Wars notwithstanding. The movie follows a young boy -Agu – […]

Food: Urban Eatery

What do the words Urban Eatery and underwhelming have in common? According to my taste buds, they’re practically synonyms. I’ve been meaning to go to Urban Eatery for quite a while now and now it will be quite a while before I go back. When we walked in, it was noisy as hell which was […]

Film: DOPE

Film: Southpaw

Southpaw wasn’t bad – and to be honest, I kind of expected it to be. I mean there was a lot of things that were not going well for it. First off, people are still letting 50 Cent act. Yuck. (I know, I know. I should give Power another chance. Ala but why. Yech.) Second, […]

Film: Straight Outta Compton

Like several remakes of popular movies, Straight Outta Compton relies heavily on nostalgia and casting for success, instead of addressing glaring problems in the NWA narrative, and film. ‘Cruisin’ down the street in my ’64’ was a line that defined rap in 1988, the year I was born. Now, because I wasn’t there when the […]
