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 […]

OR IN OTHER WORDS: ” HOW TO GET BLACK GEEKS TO COME OUT OF THE TARDIS” (I think Martha was already a bit of a geek.  So she don’t count!) I  COULD NEVER SHUT UP ABOUT MY LOVE OF ALL THINGS NERDY! I never had much trouble admitting that I was a geek.  I loved […]

Funky Q’ Review: THROUGH A LENS...

Though a documentary may be enjoyable to a general audience, a particular subject may be more than just entertaining to a select people. THROUGH A LENS DARKLY is a film that follows the growth of black photographers from the 1800s to the most famous of recent times.  Writer / Director Thomas Allen Harris shapes a […]
