February 2004
Week of February 23rd thru February 27th



Lisa Gay Hamilton, whom we know from ABC's The Practice, interviewed and has over 70 hours of footage to what is considered a national treasure, and with this being Black History Month, it's very appropiate to showcase the life of Beah Richards on HBO this week. You may know Beah from roles in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and The Great White Hope. A great proud African American actress.

Beah: A Black Woman Speaks will air on HBO Feb.25 at 7:30pm.

Latest Review Additions:
Lost Boys of Sudan (in Film)
Lost Boys of Sudan is a documentary that follows two Sudanese refugees, Peter Dut and Santino Chuor, on an extraordinary journey from Africa to America. What they think is going to be Heaven turns out to be the opposite. Itís a powerful, moving film filled with compassion and hope.

Welcome to Mooseport (in Film)
While the film could have been a little funnier, it succeeds as a great vehicle for Ray Romanoís foray unto the big screen.
Eurotrip (in Film)
The production team that made Old School and Road Trip outdo themselves in Eurotrip. I would go so far as to say this movie is funnier than both of those films combined.
50 First Dates (in Film)
Unbelievably, Adam Sandler’s 50 First Dates is a great film. It has it all, humor, a clever concept, and amazingly, a beautiful romance that will leave audiences enchanted.
Barbershop 2 (in Film)
While the story gets a little hammy at times, the barbershop crew will keep you laughing from beginning to end.
The Dreamers (in Film)
NC-17, the rarest animal in pop cinema, is delivered like a freight train. The Dreamers is not to be missed.
You Got Served (in Film)
While the acting and the plot of the film isn't worth exploring, it's the dance scenes and the music that makes the film worth seeing.
