Movie Review: Without Remorse

Published

on

Yesterday, Amazon released the long awaited film, “Without Remorse“.

A little background about this movie. Plans to shoot this movie started back in the 90s. Some of the biggest action movie heavy hitters have been attached to this movie in some way shape or form. People like Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, and Gary Sinise. For years, nothing happened with this movie, until 2012 when Tom Hardy and Kevin Costner were tied to the movie. Then in 2018 Michael B. Jordan was announced as the lead role, and would star in a two part series, Without Remorse and Rainbow Six. The film was shot from October 2019 – October 2020. Due to the pandemic there were breaks in filming of course.

Now about the movie! I’ll say this movie, for me, was refreshing. Does Hollywood have any idea how tired people are of all these black lead movies revolving around racism and slavery? Like yeah, we get it, there are stories to be told, and they should be. But every once in a while, we do enjoy just seeing shit get blown the fuck up! We showed out in record breaking numbers to see Black Panther, because for once it was just great black cinema that doesn’t remind us of the world we live in every day. Coincidentally, Michael B Jordan was in there too.

Although, Michael did a great job acting, the movie is still pretty bland overall. It’s more of a feel good, something to look at type of movie, and less of a blockbuster. In other words, if I had to pay to see this in the theaters, I’m not sure I would be ok with giving them my money. Being that it’s on streaming services, I am ok with it, although I do believe it would have done good in the box office. I just think the material was a little predictable and

I must also note that I was really happy to see Jodie Turner-Smith. It took me a minute to realize why she seemed so familiar, then in one random frame it hit me… that’s “Queen” from Queen & Slim. This melanin and dynamic between the two characters just did something for me.

Overall, I’d give the movie a 3.5/5. The storyline wasn’t too exciting, but the acting was giving what it was supposed to have gave. And #JusticeForLaurenLondon, she never gets the screen time she deserves.

2022 Oscars Coverage

Published

Well lets just start out with it was a very eventful night! The internet is buzzing about the slap seen around the world. But how about we take a minute to talk about the monumental wins. Will Smith took home his first Academy Award in his career. He won for his work on the critically acclaimed King Richard. Do you know how crazy that is? A career of groundbreaking movies, and he finally got his flowers. Billie Eilish took home the trophy for Best Original Song, for her song “No Time To Die” from the 007 movie of the same name. Ariana DeBose took home the win for Best Supporting Actress, for her work on West Side Story. She is now the first openly queer woman to win an acting Oscar. Questlove took home the win for his work on “Summer of Soul” in the Best Documentary category.

When it comes to performances, I will say that I loved Beyonce’s “Be Alive” and Billie Eilish’s “No Time To Die“. Awkwardly, there was a performance of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” that featured Megan The Stallion, Becky G and Luis Fonsi. I was left staring at the screen like “…why?!?”. Check them out below.

Drake Withdraws From The Grammys

Published

Well well, it looks like Drake has chosen to not have his music nominated for Grammys. According to PopCrave, there isn’t any word on why he has made this decision to have his 2 nominations removed.

From my perspective, being that the news broke today, the last day of voting, he may have got the feeling that he wasn’t going to win. Drake dragged this album out over the whole year, only for the album to produce mid level songs. Did it make Billboard history? Sure. But was the quality of music up to par with today’s hottest rap music? Not even close.

Nice beats, and catchy rhymes can only get you so far in the Rap industry. Even the GOATs had to change up their formula after a while, and I think it’s about time for Drake to do the same.
