Reggie Ponder, The Reel Critic, talks box office numbers and new releases Detroit, An Inconvenient Sequel and Step on Vocalo. He is joined by his daughter, Carri Ponder, The Reel Critic’s Critic.

Okay, my headline might be a bit corny but here’s my thinking:  The story we find in Detroit is not new.  In fact it is more than a sequel given that we have seen this narrative over and over again.  While sad, it is important to understand this part of history to provide a foundation for the similar situations we face today.  The story may hurt and be “inconvenient” to watch but important nonetheless.  And speaking of Inconvenient, the sequel is just what we need to better understand what is happening to our planet and what we can do about it.  An Inconvenient Sequel my not be in lock-step with the current presidential administration but it should keep the conversation and the innovation alive.  Finally, Step follows a few high school girls and their step team.  We get to see their problems, their possibilities and their performances.  So now, do you get it? Detroit may be An Inconvenient Sequel but an important Step in moving forward.  How clever, right?
