Star Wars: The Last Jedi is Half of a Great Star Wars film

Two films into a new trilogy, and three films into the new Disney era in a galaxy far, far away, audiences have yet to get something completely new from the creative team at Lucasfilm. The Force Awakens, while undeniably familiar and derivative, worked as a reinvigoration of the franchise. Rogue One provided an intriguing expansion...

For Akheem Presents Black Lives Just As They Are

17-year-old Daje “Boonie” Shelton is a “bad kid.” Marked as such early on—a burden that, to hear her tell it, primed others to expect less of her in a depressingly predictable cycle—Daje is expelled from her public high school and ordered to attend Innovative Concept Academy, a court-supervised school that offers “delinquent teens” a chance...

Gary Oldman’s Churchill is a Towering Figure in Darkest Hour

Many will want to refer to Darkest Hour, Joe Wright’s latest directorial effort, as a history lesson. The film traces Winston Churchill’s first month in office, providing a detailed look at the politics behind the British decision to finally engage in total war with Germany after the fall of Western Europe. However, the film serves...

Critical Voices: Björk, Utopia

Björk’s latest album, Utopia, released on Nov. 23, is one of the longest she has produced so far, comprised of fourteen tracks, one of them, “Body Memory,” lasting almost ten minutes. The album is a painfully monotonous one hour and eleven minute blend of orchestral flutes and soft electronics, but its one redeeming quality is...

It is difficult to make a movie more terrible than The Room. And it is even more difficult to make a movie about the making of The Room without it being equally as ridiculous, cringe-worthy, and uncomfortable to sit through as the original.

1. DAMN., Kendrick Lamar Kendrick Lamar’s fourth studio album marks another distinct shift in tone for the rapper, bringing to light his continued struggles with self-doubt, fame, and his troubled upbringing. The album is laced with contradiction, seemingly reflecting Lamar’s own state of mind as it bounces between moods, tones, and messages as quickly as…
