Week of January 26th thru January 30th



Sean "P. Diddy" Combs is always on the news for either his musical projects or his latest "on the scene" arrivals. What's not talked about is his interest in films. Besides acting in a few of them (Made, Monster's Ball), Combs has formed a film production company and this coming Thursday, Jan.29th, blackfilm.com will be hosting a speaker series at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in NYC with Anthony Maddox, Head of Production of Bad Boy Films. Click here for more information.

Also coming out this week is the film debut of the recently disbanded musical group B2K in YOU GOT SERVED. The film also stars Steve Harvey and Meagan Good.
Till next week,

Latest Review Additions:
Win a Date with Tad Hamilton (in Film)
Win a Date with Tad Hamilton is disarmingly good.  Teenage girls all over are going to get their money’s worth. 
Torque (in Film)
Torque is essentially an eighty-minute music video with ten minutes of preposterous video game CGI. 
Belly DVD Release (in Film)
The DVD that current hip-hops comes back with more flavor. 
My Baby's Daddy (in Film)
My Baby's Daddy is a very disappointing film. It had some genuinely funny moments, but is really not that funny or entertaining as a whole. 
The film is a haunting, thought-provoking, dramatic film. It not only features the challenging issues of right and wrong, but the acting is top notch, especially the work given by Ben Kingsley.
Cold Mountain is a good film, not a great film.  It's not the Oscar behemoth that they're hoping it will be, but I think audiences will generally be satisfied.
PAYCHECK (in Film)
John Woo is back in top form with his futuristic sci-fi thriller Paycheck.
Girl with a Pearl Earring (in Film)
Girl with a Pearl Earring is a masterpiece of production and subtlety.
The Last Samurai (in Film)
It's gripping, emotional, and laced with a splendid production design. Definitely one of the year's best films!
The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King (in Film)
They did save the best for last. Return of the King does an excellent job of delivering the journey part of the story, probably more than any film ever made.
