The Post: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrXlY6gzTTM Macy: This trailer drew me in right away with an impressive cast that features many beloved and accomplished actors, including Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, and Sarah Paulson. As a self-proclaimed Meryl Streep junkie, I cannot wait to see another  honest and moving performance. The compelling premise seems timely, and suggests to me…

Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven (1992) is one of my favorite films of all time, easily my favorite of the Western genre, because it recontextualized the Western film in a time when the Western film was already dying. Eastwood, having played numerous cowboys throughout his storied career, was now a grizzled former gunslinger living in the middle…

Kurtis Blow: “Basketball” One of the great songs from one of the great pioneers of hip-hop, “Basketball” is a song by a man who professes basketball to be his “favorite sport,” because, “I like the way they dribble up and down the court.” He breaks down all of his favorite offensive maneuvers: “I like slam…

I am putting myself in a very dangerous position by saying this. At risk of being labelled a party pooper, overly contrarian, or a freak of nature, I have to say I am not even remotely excited or pleased about the upcoming live action remake of the 1998 animated classic The Lion King. The recent…
