Mega-promoter Colin Beverly plans to sabotage the New Year's 1983 concert of small-time operator Max Wolfe... (92 mins.)
Director: Allan Arkush
“ 1/1-Really offbeat 80s movie about somebody throwing a party. No context, not the greatest character development, and a story that could have been written by a 10 year old. Just a party, just like "Bachelor Party", "Weird Science" and many others. Love those 80s movies! ” - thepoet21

A drama centered around a promising football running back during his senior year in college. (110 mins.)
“ 1/5-Impressive but much maligned stretch of a role by 50 Cent. He was a bit stiff,not very charismatic, but he did good. This continues the urban movie Cain and Abel theme of urban movies. ” - thepoet21
 
4.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.5/10 X  
The crazy and comical Mabel Simmoms, otherwise known as Madea, tries to wrangle her fighting family together for a family dinner regarding the health of her niece Shirley. (106 mins.)
Director: Tyler Perry
“ 1/7-This the type of movie if you like Tyler Perry,Christian themes (with a little edginess,but nothing profane), Madea, and that silly Meet the Browns guy, this will be satisfying. I liked it, having been into the Tyler Perry thing, but this is far from the best offering. He has everything you would expect from a Tyler Perry movie, but in this one he seems to put some humor in it that teens and young adults would like. Gags like "1-800-CHOKEAHO" might alienate the Christian viewers but may appeal to the young hip hop crowd. Not the best Tyler Perry movie, but probably just something to keep his name out there. ” - thepoet21

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
A pair of violent Men have spiritual awakenings. (96 mins.)
Director: Hype Williams
“ 1/8- I seen this movie when it was in the theater. MTV showed this but what I noticed was that the sound and picture quality was just so crappy. I kept on having to turn the sound up when the commercials ended and turn the sound down when they started. Plus, it seems that all the "effects" that Hype Williams used didn't transfer so well to the small screen, and I was watching on an HD big screen! The dark parts looked too dark and he does alot of distance shots making the characters look like ants. Watching this on regular TV, you cant help but think that! ” - thepoet21

Director: Norman Tokar
“ 1/14-I just saw the end of this movie but I couldn't help but remember seeing this in the 70s or so. A very tender flick that reminds you of "Little House on the Prairie". I like that stuff. ” - thepoet21

“ 2/8-A really great and sincere documentary about Nelson George's neighborhood and the early 90s arts movement that encompassed underground hip hop, spoken word poetry, comedy and film making. I liked this in that it showed the scene from the perspective of those who lived it, and showed how gentrification pretty much wiped it out.Very interesting. ” - thepoet21

“ 2/8-I seen this movie too many times, even when it first came out back in '92. It was on one of those channels I got (I think ION) which shows all those "hood movies". Not a great movie, but it was really cool back then. Also, it started that "crazy black man with a gun" movie stereotype which would be repeated in Boyz N the Hood, Menace II Society and Strapped. ” - thepoet21

Director: Brett Ratner
“ 3/31-I had high hopes for this one. But, it was really bad. Despite the all star cast, which is part of the problem! An all star cast set to pull off a heist. Smells like Oceans 11, Takers, or even Fast 5? This movie wasn't even as good as these! ” - thepoet21

Good vs evil plays out in the political arena when a Rick Perry look a like comes up against a Christian politician. I guess I would've expected a story that was more personal. You can see good vs. evil politicos on the news, so I wouldn't want to watch a movie about it, but I did, so..... ” - thepoet21

After he's shot during a heist in East L.A., an armored truck driver wrestles with rehabilitation and tracking down the man who committed the crime. (96 mins.)
Director: Brad Furman
“ 10/6-Great cast, good story, but very grainy and low budget. An urban flick with a lot of potential but not so sophisticated production. The fact that the stars are Latino vets in the industry given such shabby treatment says a lot about how they, and other minorities, are treated by Hollywood. ” - thepoet21

Director: Curtis Crawford
“ 10/7-OK movie, like an after school special type of production. Its hard to believe that the "bad boy" has a Justin Bieber type look, but I guess that's to attract the young girls this movie is aiming for with the message of being careful with who you meet online. ” - thepoet21

A coming of age story about an inner-city youth raised by a hardworking single mother. When his dream... (79 mins.)
Director: 50 Cent
“ 10/26-Crappy hood flick starring 50 Cent who deals with his mothers killing on the streets of NYC by becoming a contract killer himself. This mediocre extended music video with no music glorifies murder and gangsterism while trying to condemn it with some rather shallow platitudes and a "what goes around comes around" ending. Not good. ” - thepoet21

Director: Lauren Lazin
“ 11/24-Never saw this before now. Seen alot of Tupac documentaries and shows, read alot of books. This didn't really reveal much of anything new, but it did a good job of providing something of a timeline. This is good for people not familiar with him, but for those fans who already know his life story, there isn't much you will see that you haven't seen before. ” - thepoet21

A documentary on former New York City club owner Peter Gatien. (103 mins.)
Director: Billy Corben
“ 12/1-Impressive documentary about a guy who owned all the big NYC clubs. Shows his rise and fall due to the government of NYC trying to shut his clubs down for various reasons. Focused alot on the drug and music scenes, how they mixed and combined to make a really awesome scene fade. ” - thepoet21

Director: James Toback
“ 12/15-This reminds me of those artsy flicks you would see that was between the "hip" bookstore and the coffee shop. Big movie stars, Bullet head from the Steve Harvey show, and white college kids mingle with Mike Tyson and the Wu Tang Clan for something giving mixed results. Fans of Wu Tang Clan will like this, but other than that, its just alright. ” - thepoet21

“ 12/30-I barely remember this but I think I did see it one time before. In my opinion, this was a bit more mental than the first. The first was extremely visual, with some of it's notorious scenes. This, however, counted more on the connection between the characters of Sharon Stone's character and the therapist. This makes it more or less exciting, depending on your perspective. ” - thepoet21
