March 2004
Week of March 8th thru March 12th


Let's face it. When it comes to horror films and thrillers, in most cases, an African-American is usually the first one to die. Lately, Hollywood is trying to change that common trend.


More recently, Kelly Rowland survived in "Freddy Vs. Jason", and coming out on March 19th, Mekhi Phifer and Ving Rhames will try to do the same in "Dawn of the Dead". Also featured in the film are Jake Weber, and Sarah Polley.

Latest Review Additions:
Starsky and Hutch (in Film)
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson'sİcomedic timing, as well as the '70s look in the film and the casting of Snoop Dogg as Huggy Bear makes the film a joy to watch.

Spartan (in Film)
David Mamet's Spartan is a crisp, taut thriller, laden with surprises and frenetic in its pace. It succeeds as a first-rate thriller and that's hard to find these days in Hollywood.

Agent Cody Banks: Destination London (in Film)
Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London is a wonderfully clean, silly, depthless film for the 8 to 12 year old set.

Hidalgo (in Film)
Hidalgo is an adventure tale for the whole family to enjoy, filled with emotion and quality entertainment. I highly recommend it.

James' Journey to Jerusalem (in Film)
It's an enjoyable film filled with a universal story and a commanding performance by its lead actor Siyabonga Melongisi Shibe.

Matchstick Men DVD Review (in Film)

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (in Film)
Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights is quite similar to the original film. The setting and time has changed, but the formula doesn't have that feel-good effect the second time around.

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. It's 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 Romano's 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.
