I remember watching and liking What Women Want (2000) starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt. So I actually can’t wait to see how this version will play out. So far, I have zero complaints about the trailer.

Written / directed by Tyler Perry, Acrimony stars Taraji P. Henson as a faithful wife who becomes enraged when it’s abundantly clear that she’s been betrayed by her devious husband…

I’m tuning in because its Taraji P. Henson who’s a wonderful actor and always a delight to watch. I’m going to miss her as Cookie once Empire ends. She’s the only reason I keep watching that show now, if I’m honest. This trailer also inspired flashbacks of Angela Bassett in Waiting to Exhale (1995).

Lyriq Bent, Danielle Nicolet and Jazmyn Simon also star.

Acrimony Release Dates: March 30th, 2018 (US)…

HIDDEN FIGURES (2016): For The Sisterhood, Strength & Determination

Hidden Figures, the movie about the three African American women whose mathematical contributions led to NASA’s first successful space missions is a film that did two important things for me. First it gave myself and many others a long overdue history lesson and second, it reminded me that that even though there’s still a considerable way to go, humanity really has come quite the distance in terms of equality and civil rights.

Seeing the challenges faced by the film’s main characters, the ways they dealt with the obstacles they encountered is really a great and empowering thing for anyone to witness. I particularly adore the sisterhood, strength, determination and good humour between them. By them I of course mean  Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson. I see these ladies as the kind of women with personal attributes that many would  probably want for the women and young girls in their life. And I’m not even talking about the mathematical genius.

Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae, there really is no faulting any of the performances in Hidden Figures. Director Theodore Melfi’s movie is a good example of what a well-put-together film can look like. Watch it because it’s thoroughly deserving of all its success. It’s also a beautiful celebration of truly great women and the people good and brave enough to do what was necessary to help them shine.

Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Glen Powell and Mahershala Ali also star.

Starring Taraji P Henson, Janelle Monae and Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures tells the true story of 3 African American women whose mathematical abilities / contributions led to NASA’s first successful space missions..

I just love when people achieve far more than other’s expectations of their abilities. Taraji P. Henson and Octavia are wonderful actresses so i can’t wait to see the inspiring story of mathematician Katherine Johnson on the big screen.

Jim Parsons, Kevin Costner and Kirsten Dunst also star while Theodore Melfi directs.

Hidden Figures Release Dates: January 13th, 2017 (US); February 24th, 2017 (UK)…

TERM LIFE (2016): New Trailer Starring Hailee Seinfeld, Bill Paxton & Vince Vaughn

Vince Vaughn has an intriguing new movie and it also stars Bill Paxton, Hailee Steinfeld, Jon Favreau and Taraji P. Henson…

I’m hopeful because of John Favreau, Hailee Steinfeld and Bill Paxton’s involvement. Favreau because of his work in Chef (2014) and  I Love You, Man (2009), Steinfeld for True Grit (2010) and Paxton because of what he achieved with 2 Guns (2013) and he’s just generally very good. My fingers are very crossed.

Term Life Release Date(s): March 1st, 2016 (US)…
