BEATS (2019): New Trailer From Anthony Anderson, Uzo Aduba, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Khalil Everage…

Starring Anthony Anderson, Uzo Aduba, Khalil Everage and Emayatzy Corinealdi, Beats is a promising new coming-of-age drama set in Chicago’s South Side.

Directed by Chris Robinson, the story focuses on a reclusive teenage musical prodigy and his unlikely friendship with a down-on-his-luck high school security guard…

This well-edited trailer has me interested because of the way Uzo Aduba’s character asks the revealing question: ‘Are you gonna… make sure my son doesn’t get shot walking home from school?

Another reason to see this is the fact that I already feel quite invested in August’s complete evolution. I want to see him make it through to the other side and I definitely want to know just how great his beats actually are.

Last but not least, did I already mention Uzo Aduba? Something tells me we’re really going to enjoy her performance.

Paul Walter Hauser, Ariana Burks, Julian Williams, Dave East, Ashley Jackson, Megan Sousa, Evan J Simpson and Jeremy Phillips also star.

Beats Release Dates: June 19th, 2019 (US)…

BARBERSHOP (2002): The Things I Liked…

Starring Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Eve and Michael Ealy, before watching Barbershop, I had quite a clear idea about how director Tim Story’s Chicago based Barbershop comedy was going to turn out.

There’s humorous banter among those that work in the barbershop and the sometimes peculiar patrons / random visitors. It’s not all laughs of course, there’s a little drama thrown in too.

As fun as the barbershop banter is, what I loved most about the movie actually takes place outside the barbershop. It’s all the comedy that comes from everything the characters played by Lahmard J. Tate and Anthony Anderson get up to.

Barbershop is a good slice of light Chicago based entertainment with colourful characters. Know this, expect nothing more and enjoy.
