Jadakiss – “ME” (Short Film)

This is INSANE!!!

Jadakiss dropped this short film on Friday, too?? The man’s got a movie so that banger “ME” would have something to be a ‘soundtrack’ to???? Answer is yes and YES!

And to your third question… Of course the short film is dope!

Richard Jewell: The World Will Know His Name And The Truth (Trailer)

Talk about ‘no good deed going unpunished’… Not sure if the trailer is leading us away from the real plot twist of this flick, but if the authorities always consider the one who reports the crime their prime suspect… well, they can’t be mad at folks not wanting to tell them anything.

Clint Eastwood directing is a great sign. This movie will be good! Looks like a solid cast, too.

‘The Marion Stokes Project’ Looks At A Woman Who Recorded 30 Years Of How We Looked In American Media (Trailer)

Interesting. If the press, or media, provides a ‘first draft of history,’ what can we say about this lady… who recording EVERYTHING media?

For over 30 years, Marion Stokes obsessively and privately recorded American television news twenty-four hours a day. A civil rights-era radical who became fabulously wealthy and reclusive later in life, her obsession started with the Iranian Hostage Crisis in 1979—at the dawn of the twenty-four hour news cycle. It ended on December 14, 2012 as the Sandy Hook massacre played on television while Marion passed away. In between, Marion filled 70,000 VHS tapes, capturing revolutions, wars, triumphs, catastrophes, bloopers, talk shows and commercials that show us how television shaped the world of today and in the process tell us who we were.

A mystery in the form of a time capsule, RECORDER delves into the strange life of a woman for whom home taping was a form of activism to protect the truth (the public didn’t know it, but the networks had been disposing their archives for decades into the trashcan of history) and though her visionary and maddening project nearly tore her family apart, her extraordinary legacy is priceless.

The Last App She May Ever Download, “Countdown” Comes To Theaters October 25th (Trailer)

Nope, nope, naw hell!!

I remember that commercial that talked about that phone number you could call to find out when you were going to die. No way I was calling then… no way I would download this sh!t now. Yeah, yeah, ha ha, laugh and say, “It’s just a movie all you want” but nah…

In COUNTDOWN, when a young nurse (Elizabeth Lail) downloads an app that claims to predict exactly when a person is going to die, it tells her she only has three days to live. With time ticking away and death closing in, she must find a way to save her life before time runs out.

This Thanksgiving In Theaters: Tom Hanks Asks, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” (Trailer)

Best. Casting. EVER! Get your issue of tissues, because the sweet memories of Mister Rogers alone might bring a tear to your eyes. Just imagine what is gonna happen when the Oscar-winning Tom Hanks brings him back to life on the big screen.

After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.

The Story Behind Little Brother’s Debut Album, “The Listening” (Documentary)

When you hear them together, it sounds right…

This is how dope documentaries get done! Okay, so at 11 minutes it’s more like a mini-doc… but just right. Frame the story as a ‘making of’ but drop all kinds of gems and jewels of history (group and Hip-Hop) along the way.

Started in a college dorm room by a group of North Carolina Central students in 2001, the Justus League collective and offshoot trio Little Brother defined the sound of Durham Hip-Hop for years to come, constructing a style altogether distinct from everything to the north and south. This level of innovation turned heads with some of Hip-Hop’s biggest names, and the members of Little Brother (9th Wonder, Big Pooh and Phonte) have gone on to work with superstars like Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre and Questlove, who appears in the documentary.

Naomie Harris Is “Black And Blue” And On The Wrong Side Of The ‘Thin Blue Line’ (Trailer)

These streets are a war zone.

True that. And this movie is true to that. We know that ‘boys in blue’ can leave the boys in the hood “Black And Blue.” However, this ain’t quite that, esp. for Naomie Harris. It can get really real [dangerous] when those in blue are Black… and up against their own. Edgy, nail-biting trailer!

(And wow! Black Lightning’s Nafessa Williams AND Marvel’s Luke Cage’s Mike Colter AND Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s Frank Grillo are in this, too? Screen action veterans, all across the sci-fi comic hero universes!!)

Pitted against rival gangs and a deadly ring of corrupt cops, the unlikely duo find a way to survive together in the fight of their lives.

“Queen & Slim” Debuts In Theaters This Coming November (Trailer)

So they’re making “Queen & Slim” out to be the Black “Bonnie & Clyde”… and a dope version at that!

From trailblazing, Emmy-winning writer Lena Waithe (Netflix’s Master of None) and Melina Matsoukas, the visionary director of some of this generation’s most powerful pop-culture experiences, including Beyonce’s “Formation” and the Nike “Equality” campaign, comes Makeready’s unflinching new drama, “Queen & Slim.”

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a Black man (Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a Black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.

Octavia Spencer & Kelvin Harrison Jr. Have A Very Bad Teacher-Student Relationship (Trailer)

Gotta admit this trailer touched a nerve. Several. Most in the Hip-Hop nation might feel the need to give a “RIP Nipsey Hussle” noting the main character shared the late great’s Eritrean roots. But me, I have been in a very uncomfortable “the teacher doesn’t like me” situation. Not this bad, but bad…

A married couple is forced to reckon with their idealized image of their son, adopted from war-torn Eritrea, after an alarming discovery by a devoted high school teacher threatens his status as an all-star student.
