The Deuce: “Show and Prove”

The Deuce: “Show and Prove”

  Already approved for another season, the Deuce continues to amaze audiences and we are only two episodes into it. Bringing light to the grimy streets of 1970s NYC, so far we have been submersed in the popularity of pimping and prostitution.  With this episode, we see women working the streets and trying to find a way to work more money into their pockets.  When you have a pimp taking part of the cut, it doesn’t leave you with much. You could argue the main point of this episode, “Show and Prove,” was for women to show up and prove they could do it for themselves.  In the time when prostitutes were routinely...

Insecure: “Hella Disrespectful” & Season Finale “Hella Perspective”

Insecure: “Hella Disrespectful” & Season Finale “Hella Perspective”

  With the season coming to a close, it’s time to have our last check in on Issa, Molly, Lawrence, and the whole crew. It’s been a HELLA season, and there have been quite a few ups and downs for everyone involved. We gotta wonder where they left off and what might be to come next season.   Episode 7: “Hella Disrespectful” What’s the best way to stir the drama?  Put everyone in the same room at a dinner party. This week is nothing short of panic inducing stress from the tension lingering in that dining room.  Molly (Yvonne Orji) is trying to become  an equal in her work life but has to sit and...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “A Monster Calls”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “A Monster Calls”

I didn’t know much going into this movie review. I knew it was about a sad kid and Felicity Jones is in it. So if you know anything about it, you can imagine my hesitation when I realized how hormonal I was and it was time to watch this film. As the trailer elaborates, this is the story of a boy-not-yet-a-man named Conor (played by Lewis MacDougall) who is struggling to deal with losing his mother (Felicity Jones) slowly due to illness. Conor believes he is doing enough to care for his mother, and that she will eventually get better. His grandmother (Sigourney Weaver) is stepping in and moving Conor into her house; a move Conor does...

Insecure: Episodes 3 “Hella Open” & 4 “Hella LA”

Insecure: Episodes 3 “Hella Open” & 4 “Hella LA”

Last year left Issa a bit out in the cold, and trying to figure out how to get her game back.  Her girls gave her some hard truths to digest, and now it is up to her to work it out.  She’s ready to get back on the dating scene, or is she?  Waiting on a chance to talk to Lawrence (Jay Ellis) doesn’t exactly mean that Issa is ready to get down with someone else.  And it doesn’t seem like Lawrence is waiting around for her either.  But in the end, some couples end up finding their way back to each other. Is it possible these two really do belong together?   Episode 3: “Hella Open” Issa makes it very...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”

If you are like me, and I do certainly hope so, then you believe that there is nothing more glorious for the world state than more Harry Potter Universe.  We are agreed, yes?  Good, now we can move on.  Admittedly, I have been a Harry Potter fanatic since I was very young.  It got me through some of the worst troubles of my life.  All of which is in depth discussed on my blog if you’re so inclined *wink, wink, nudge, nudge.*  But for now, let’s discuss the wonder of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Briefly mentioned in the original Harry Potter storylines, Newt Scamander is a magical zoologist who studied a vast...
