The critics discuss the movie Concrete Cowboy. We all liked it for a variety of reasons and hope more people see the film as more than a movie because it reclaims the rich history between Blacks and horses.
This week Shawn Edwards, Kathia Woods, Emmanuel Noisette and I talked about the movies Godzilla vs Kong, and Concrete Cowboy We also discussed the new series Them. And as usual, we talk about industry issues.
This week Shawn, Kathia, and I talk about the movies Zack Snyder’s Justice League (and we disagree), Genius: Aretha (and there are some STRONG opinions), and the documentary Tina (I think we agreed). We also talked about if The Golden Globe Awards Show needs to be replace given their lack of diversity and systemic issues, the importance of the NAACP Image Awards and some needed changes, and Disney’s decision to drop the movie Black Widow in Theaters and on VOD simultaneously. Lively discussion. #film #movies #ElevateBlackVoices
