A Fall from Grace opens with an older woman on the ledge of a roof asking how she could be so stupid. Distracted or pushed by the wind of a helicopter, the woman falls off the roof and we’ve witnessed he first tragedy of the movie. Using rudimentary foreshadowing, we know it must somehow be related, but we don’t quite know yet. The movie escalates as quickly as any crazy relationship would but Grace asks herself all the questions we wonder; How could she let this happen? Is she really that stupid? But the worst part about questioning Grace is that we are actually questioning — Does this old woman really think this young man could ever love her? No one thinks they are dumb enough to fall for a con artist… but con artists aren’t dumb. In addition, we begin to question the law and the system as we watch a public defendant give her all.
You know that feeling when everything that could possibly goes wrong happens exactly how it would if your enemy were writing your life story? Yea, well… that’s exactly how Miami’s Art Basel weekend went for me. Tiffany Haddish has this joke about how the devil lives in Miami & I’m telling y’all she’s right because he stole my phone. Let me tell you the story…
There is a huge part of me that’s embarrassed to admit that I just found out who Ruth Carter is — one of the best costume designers on Earth. Having started out Spike Lee in his first film (School Daze, 1988) and over 10 more, including Malcom X (1992). , this woman has been a trailblazer in her field and an absolute advocate for Black culture — but really any culture. Ruth has been hired for over 40 films by the likes of Steven Spielberg for Amistad (1997), by Ava DuVerney for Selma (2014) and Ryan Coogler for Black Panther (2018). Ruth is the first person called when it comes to films that are supposed to be authentic, historically heavy and (more often than not), culturally significant.
The first season introduces you to all the girls and you quickly start to pick your favorites. I love how each one has a distinct story and personality. Somehow, you learn to love even the most evil of them, because you see all they’re going through and recognize them as human. Season after season of escape, murder, kidnapping and much more, you are sure to stay entertained while the characters rack up life sentences. The most unrealistic part is how many times these girl escape — after a whi
What would you do with 2.4 Billion Euros? Under the training and supervision of The Professor, an unlikely group of rebels because a family of robbers, making Robin Hood’s dreams come true in “Money Heist”. Tapping into their deepest needs and strongest talents, The Professor builds a team to infiltrate and rob one of Spains largest banks. With endless planning and wit, the group puts the government to the test when it comes to keeping order, and maintaining their morals. Just like the people of Spain, who being to applaud the robbers for stealing from the rich and giving back to the poor, we learn to love these characters, while they find a way to love themselves and trust each other.
It was heartbreaking to watch Grace struggle to catch the pieces of the world falling around her. At 17 years old, she loses her best friend… who she was falling in love with. Worse was watching her lose herself.
If you haven’t already seen Birdbox, the internet memes will certainly make you. The psychologically disturbing horror film tells a chilling story of an epidemic in where people are killing themselves, and others are helping them.

How confusing is this Kevin Spacey mess? Unfortunately, it seems way too straight forward that he may be something of a sexual predator. According to whatever I’ve read on CNN about Mr. Spacey, one story opened the flood gates to a bunch more people coming forward to corroborate the stories. I want to be sad for Spacey… but I, too, think I’m more angry…
