KICKS Trailer Mixes Street Life and the Surreal

Kicks is a film about a nerd who deals with bullies that have an affinity for footwear.  The trailer gives me a 2015 DOPE vibe, but with a darker structure. I’m feeling director Justin Tippings choice of surreal visuals with young actor Jahking Guilroy as Brandon, and his imaginary friend, Mr. Apollo Astronaut.  I’ve mentioned […]

Queen Of Katwe – Chessboards, Hope and Black Beautifulness

What is more nerdy than the Chess Club. Ah, but just that expression alone brings up the stereotypical images of young people in thick glasses in suburban schools getting excited and yelling “Check Mate!”  Well Chess clubs are everywhere, and the trailer for Queen Of Katwe will have you check yourself if you didn’t imagine […]

Netflix Taking It Back To The Bronx – THE GET DOWN

Got the heads up from Shadow and Act.  This is one Netflix series I’m certainly going to tune in for.  THE GET DOWN reflects the times that Geek Soul Brother grew up in.  Yeah, it doesn’t have lasers (at least in the trailer), but I bet they have some Parliament if Netflix did their research […]

Funky Q’ Review: Knock ’em Dead (2014)

Another review from my ever expanding Netflix queue is the 2014 slasher comedy – Knock ’em Dead.  This low budget film, with its poor lighting and bad editing, had some saving charms.  Three of those charms were actresses Rae Dawn Chong, Anne-Marie Johnson, and Debra Wilson who you probably remember from early Mad TV days. The film […]

CHIRAQ Trailer! or That Time Spike Lee Used A Greek Play To Combat Street Violence!

I did not know this film was coming. It was only last year that we got Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus from a successful Spike Lee kickstarter campaign. Now the director brings some greek comedy and tragedy to the streets of Chicago with his new film Chi-Raq. From what I can see there is a blend […]

I share my love of videogames, comics and superhero enthusiasm with my nephew. I flung him headfirst into the world of fantasy and […]
