The Golden Age Of Black Talent In Hollywood

March 2nd, 2010 10:05am EST
Are Black Men The Dominant Leading Actors Of This Era
Hollywood has always had its share of big-name black talent, from Sidney Poitier to Hattie McDaniel to Louis Gossett, Jr. But looking back, none of those big names owned Hollywood like Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, or Audrey Hepburn did. Poitier, McDaniel, and Gossett, Jr. were immensely talented pioneers, but they were vastly outnumbered by their peers in the industry. Unfortunate as it was, they were the exception in Hollywood, not the rule.

This was probably due in part to the social fabric of America at the time. It can’t have been easy for Sidney Poitier, even with his incredible tal...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Alice In Wonderland,' 'Brooklyn's Finest' & More

March 1st, 2010 10:02am EST
Alice In Wonderland
Kevin Smith’s “Cop Out” turned out to be a delightful action comedy in the vein of typical buddy cop movies from the 80s and early 90s. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I laughed throughout the film. This was primarily due to hilarious performances from Tracy Morgan and Sean William Scott. To read more about what I thought of “Cop Out” check out my Starpulse review here.

The first week of March delivers to theaters Tim Burton’s long awaited whimsical tale “Alice in Wonderland,” the gritty cop drama “Brooklyn’s Finest,” and the NYC release of the animated feature “The Secret of ...

Gangs Protected The Set Of 'Brooklyn's Finest'

February 25th, 2010 2:23pm EST
Brooklyn
Director Antoine Fuqua recruited New York gang members to protect stars Richard Gere, Wesley Snipes, Don Cheadle and Ethan Hawke on the set of their new movie Brooklyn's Finest.

The movie follows a trio of drug cops in a rough New York neighborhood and was filmed on location in the deprived area of Brownsville. Fuqua admits he feared for the safety of his cast and crew during the shoot.

He tells WENN, "We would be filming and then you'd hear gunfire and people running up the street. It was very real to be around a lot of that stuff. We were protected by some gang members that we had rel...

Dear John
Nicholas Sparks is a bestselling US author who is famous for writing dramatic and romantic tales that often include tragedy and Christian values. There are a few things you know about his books going in: it might be a little over the top, but you'll still be sobbing by the end of it somehow. His newest book-turned-movie comes out this week titled "Dear John," about a soldier and his love for a young girl that he woos in constant letters. Considering he has several more books that can be made into films, this is likely not the last we'll be seeing of his adaptations. Love him or hate him, hi...

Review: 'Amelia' Displays Stunning Cinematography But Storyline Is Dry & Lacking

October 22nd, 2009 10:21am EDT
Amelia
The new Hilary Swank, Richard Gere led film, 'Amelia,' is a tale of two films. The cast is stellar and the cinematography is simply wonderful; unfortunately something is awry with the script since the film is entirely too long, dry and lacking when it comes to an interesting or an in depth storyline between the two lead characters of Amelia Earhart (played by Hilary Swank) and her husband/man behind the career, George Putnam (played by Richard Gere).

The film covers only the most basic portions of Earhart and Putnam's time together in saying that they were in an open marriage and busin...

Spotlight On The Best Big-Screen Lawyers

April 16th, 2009 10:00am EDT
Chicago
Lawyers have been around basically as long as the law has been present - even back in Ancient Rome and Greece there were men who would stand up and speak for the laws they made. Over the years the role of the lawyer has altered a few times, but it always comes back to truth, justice, and honesty ... or the exact opposite of those ideas.

Lawyers have gained a rather negative persona, either due to them wanting too much money or doing it for their own ego rather than what is right. Film often interprets reality, and so lawyers on screen are usually portrayed as either virtuous, helpful,...

This mini-season of The Hills came to a close last night, and my grade would be a C+. The highlights of this season - Kelly Cutrone, Kelly Cutrone, and more Kelly Cutrone. The lowlights - Stephanie Pratt, Spencer Pratt, the complete Barbie-fication of Heidi, and LC's lackluster turn as a jobless, student-less, sometimes heartless reality celeb.

It's almost as if the Paris Hilton syndrome infected the "Hills" stars this mini season. Symptoms of the Paris Hilton syndrome include a complete lack of purpose, no will or drive to succeed, and an especially cavalier attitude towards life...

The Cineplexes Are Alive With The Sound Of Music: The Return Of The Movie Musical

On April 22's episode of American Idol, renowned composer and lyricist Andrew Lloyd Weber stood patiently trying to teach a blank-eyed Jason Castro the song, "Memory" from one of history's most popular musicals, "Cats." Smiled the clueless Castro, "I didn't even know a cat was singing it."

Quell'horror! Is this the extent of musical theater knowledge possessed by today's generation? In fairness, Castro is from Texas, not exactly around the corner from Broadway. Perhaps had there been a big-screen version of "Cats," more people under the age of 30 would be hip to the magic and majesty...
