December 2005
Week of December 26th through December 30th


   As the 2005 closes, it’s time to reflect on how the year was. As the year started, the biggest buzz and foregone conclusion was that no one could stop Jamie Foxx from winning the Oscar for Best Actor for his riveting performance as Ray Charles in “Ray”. He practically swept most of the critics awards and was the heavy favorite. If 2004 was the year of Jamie Foxx, then 2005 was certainly the year of Terrence Howard. Although Howard has been in this business for more than 10 years with numerous films on his resume, 2005 is when Hollywood took notice of his superlative gifts of his talent. And finally, we must pay respects to the talent that paved the way for many to be in this business and helped spread the word within the black community.

Latest Review Additions:
King Kong (in Film )
Though the film could have been shortened to some extent, the story is still intact and it’s got all that one would want – a thrill, some romance, and plenty of excitement.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (in Film )
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’ is a grand success.  It entertains on all levels with a skillful blending of story and incredible visual effects.  

Brokeback Mountain (in Film )
Brokeback Mountain is a great film that puts a different spin on a universal theme. I firmly believe that open-minded adults can watch this film and appreciate it artistically.

Rent (in Film )
Nearly ten years later, the original actors have made “Rent” into an amazing, heartfelt and electrifying film.
Just Happy to be Here (in Film )
View the review.
Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire (in Film )
I urge you to view this magical creation, bask in its creative ambiance, and see a perfect dream unravel before your eyes.
Jarhead (in Film )
Entertainment value is a must in any film and that is the one area that Jarhead comes up short. It simply drags in too many places.
Doom (in Film )
Doom is a far more accomplished film. Granted, my expectations were extremely low, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the filmmakers made a decent film.
North Country (in Film )
North Country is a gripping, emotionally packed stunner of a drama that easily contends as the best film of 2005.
Good Night and Good Luck (in Film )
Good Night, and Good Luck is a major artistic achievement by Clooney and easily one of the best films of 2005.
