Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Should the glorification of gun violence, as depicted in this action/thriller, become a thing of the past? Is that notion worth a discussion? Think on it. John Wick is back. In Chapter 3 of this ultra-violent franchise, this assassin digs deeper and deeper into an underworld of hit men and women who are greedy for conquests... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The Walking Dead is one of the popular shows on television. Every time a new season starts, it’s on. Sometimes the season starts off hot then over a few episodes it’ll cools. Once it cools, it picks back up with the mid-season finale and the season finale. This is just what it does. I sat out on The Walking Dead’s first... [Read more...]

Film Review; Non-Fiction (Doubles Vies).

May 7, 2019 by  
Filed under Ent., Music, News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The sneaky, narcissistic and shallow characters who inhabit Olivier Assayas’ backstabbing ode to the rapidly changing publishing industry are unappealing. It’s hard to relate to them even within the context of a slightly humorous script and efficient direction. Avid readers are switching from hardcover books and paperbacks... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) First, let’s get this out of the way. Avengers: Endgame is fascinating from beginning to end. However, it is not a wall-to-wall action film. The writers (Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely) and directors (Anthony and Joe Russo) take the time to set up and explore the characters’ emotional state, develop their arcs,... [Read more...]

The Video Store: Spider-Man 3.

Filed under Ent., Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Spider-Man is in my top five favorite Marvel superheroes. It’s a bit of a cheat list because both Miles Morales and Peter Parker are there. During my junior year of high school, the first Spider-Man film dropped. This movie was in development for a sometime as they found directors, writers for the script, and made necessary... [Read more...]
