The premiere of Key and Peele’s Keanu has started a global dialogue on the dearth of kitten-centered films. As a self-professed ‘cat person’ I couldn’t be more thrilled! Okay–maybe ‘global dialogue’ borders on hyperbole but Keanu certainly should give us cause for paws (see what I did there?) to reflect on the moments furry thespians worked that old cat …

GSB Film Review: INSIDIOUS CHAPTER 3 (2015)

Insdious-Chapter-3-1

  Welcome to the 3rd chapter of what I call the new Goosebumps franchise.  Why call it that?  Because the Insidious series actually has a PG-13 rating.  Many people forgot that when they reviewed the first film.  But I could tell from the jump that the film was for a younger generation because the demon looked …

the lazarus effect film

  I was wondering the other day why I couldn’t find this trailer. Evidently Blumhouse Productions was sitting on it. But now we get our first taste of the horror film starring Olivia Wilde, Evan Peters, Mark Duplass and the Gambino himself – Donald Glover. We all know that when people start playing around with ways to …

GSB Film Review: TOP FIVE (2014)

4-Cosmic-Afros

  You would think a romantic comedy that deals with the pressures of fame, family, alcoholism and unpaid prostitutes would be too much to fit into a film and actually work. But writer / director Chris Rock packs it all together nicely in his new film – TOP FIVE. Andre Allen is an international star …

GSB Film Review: HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY (2014)

hunger_games_mocking_jay

    When I first heard about The Hunger Games I didn’t know it was a teen book series. I leave that kind of important information to my fellow geek and avid reader Shumara a.k.a. @Illumeenous and other book geeks like her. My first thought of the original film was that it must be a …

Trailer Jive: 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE (2014)

You know, my fellow host of the ‘Geek Soul Brother and the 5 Nerdy Venoms’ podcast – Toby Wan Kenobi – said he was looking forward to seeing this.  I have to admit, even thought it still has those cool slo-mo visuals, I’m not impressed yet.  I don’t get the feeling they gave us a …
