TALK TO ME opens on July 13, 2007
The powerful real-life story of Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene (portrayed by Academy Award nominee Don Cheadle), an outspoken ex-con who talked his way into becoming an iconic radio personality in the 1960s in Washington, D.C. Sparked by both the era's vibrant soul music and exploding social consciousness, Petey openly courted controversy at a white-owned station. Relying on his producer Dewey Hughes (double Golden Globe Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor) to run interference, Petey's unprecedented "tell it like it is" on-air style gave voice and spirit to the black community during and exciting and turbulent period in American history. Directed by Kasi Lemmons, cast also includes Taraji P. Henson, Mike Epps, Vondie Curtis Hall, Cedric the Entertainer, and Martin Sheen. Click here for pics

Latest Review Additions:
Harry Potter review (in Film)
Audiences are left with an overrated film that leaves points of the plot hanging and the magic within a little rusty

The Last Mimzy DVD review (in Film)
A timely cautionary tale, even if its heartwarming message gets a little garbled along the way.

Ghosts of Cite Soleil (in Film)
A revealing documentary about a bloody turf war inside a notorious Haitian slum. What makes this movie compelling is that the leaders of the competing posses are also blood brothers

After the Wedding DVD review (in Film)
A paradoxical, if ultimately plausible portrait of a fractured family whose emotions can not be contained when the skeletons belatedly come bursting out of the closet.

License to Wed (in Film)
Looks like Robin Williams has replaced Cuba Gooding, Jr. as the kiss of death on the set of any comedy.

Live Free or Die Hard (in Film)
A satisfying throwback which reminds us how a big-budget is supposed to be made. If you only see one film this summer, you need to get out more.

Sicko (in Film)
An ironically entertaining and eye-opening film about the garbage our government feeds us and the real truths of a system that will help, not hinder, our people and nation.
Black Snake Moan DVD (in Film)
Although there’s no Madea Like Hustle & Flow, Craig Brewer returned to Memphis to craft an equally-empathetic portrait of a nymphomaniac.
Evan Almighty (in Film)
Evan Almighty is a thoroughly clean, enjoyable family film. It it is sufficiently devoid enough of profanity, spicy innuendo, and gore that you can feel completely at ease with taking children to enjoy it.
You Kill Me (in Film)
An unsatisfying compromise flick on the fence which might have worked had it either been played straight or purely for laughs.
DOA: Dead or Alive (in Film)
Sit back and delight in the cinematic equivalent of a fashion runway which seizes on the flimsiest of excuses to
shoot sweaty, two-fisted beauties flying around in lingerie, swimsuits and skin-tight attire from every conceivable angle.
Daddy's Little Girls(DVD) (in Film)
Although there’s no Madea character in the mix this time out, the film still features plenty of Perry’s pictures’ trademarks.
A noble attempt to make an interesting but contrived plot work, but the chemistry between the two leads isn’t there to make this film worth seeing.
While Story may have heard what the fans wanted to see, he apparently didn’t listened carefully as to how to carve out the story.
Hostel II (in Film)
While the premise is the still the same, only with females now instead of guys, Roth has thrown a curve ball in this rethread formula, which makes it above average.
Ocean's Thirteen (in Film)
A downright comfortable diversion in male-bonding that doesn’t ask anything of you except to sit back, relax and eat some popcorn.
Pierrepoint - The Last Hangman (in Film)
Film presents an empathetic portrait of this complicated figure, chronicling the mounting toll which his work in the gallows gradually took on his psyche and private life.
Daywatch (in Film)
Any horror and action fan tired of the norm will embrace Day Watch.The film has the popcorn spectacle we (American audiences) expect from epic battles between good and evil
Knocked Up (in Film)
This messy, mythical tale is essentially a high-octane action flick masquerading as a cerebral costume drama
Letters from Iwo Jimo DVD (in Film)
Letters from Iwo Jima exudes an undeniable emotional honesty likely to touch the heart of even the most embittered veteran of the Pacific theater.
