November 2003
Week of November 7th thru November 14th



Much has been said, written, and viewed on the life and times of rapper Tupac Shakur, who was sadly murdered years ago. While everyone thinks they have seen enough footage on this extraordinary and talented genius, there's still much more to be discovered. In a new documentary that was produced by his mother Afeni Shakur, in conjunction with MTV films, we will get to know Tupac from his childhood years to his last days on earth.

The Matrix Revolution (in Film)
What people want as a bubble-gum, cliché-filled happy ending is not the final bow to this masterpiece.

Girlhood (in Indie)
Girlhood is an amazing, sobering but must-see look at the way many young people are now coming-of-age and poses the question of how this country can work to give them back the childhoods they deserve..

Shattered Glass is a superbly written movie. It's very entertaining, intriguing, and smart.

Scary Movie (in Film)
Scary Movie 3 is definitely the better of the three films, and shockingly so, even though there is not one Wayans family member in this one.

Reviewed by Edgar Arce
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (in Film)
I am happy to report that this film lives up to the original and it delivers. It’s also sporting something horror films these days are seriously lacking, SCARES. It is a gift to the horror fan who is all “Scream-ed” out.

Reviewed by Bruno Soto

It’s a film that will you have laughing and crying and leaves you feeling good in the end.

Mystic River (in Film)
Eastwood has put together a great murder mystery film without it having any clichéd moments from the genre.

Reviewed by Wilson Morales
Kill Bill (in Film)
Kill Bill is an incomplete tale of bloodthirsty revenge that’s sure to satiate those of you who revel in sick and twisted cinema. Die-hard Quentin Tarantino fans and action junkies will love this.

Reviewed by Monikka Stallworth
Bus 174 (in Film)
The film is more than just a documentary. It is a thorough, detail oriented portrayal of a young man living with nothing but desperation, the victims he brings down with him and the society that shaped him.

Reviewed by Niija Kuykendall
Out of Time (in Film)
“Out of Time” is a colorful and energetic film that suffers from clichéd scenes from other movies.

Reviewed by Wilson Morales

Though the theme is not new, and the plot has been seen before, the twist is interesting and the acting is excellent.
