Five Sundance Festival Films To Watch Out For

With the recent release of Red Tails, there has been a lot of discussion about the ongoing lack of people of color in Hollywood and what to do about it. It’s cute that George Lucas thinks he can change the game with some awesome special effects (wrapped in a gossamer-thin plot), but finding a place in the mainstream market with big-budget blockbusters is really just as well. What I think is also important, more important, is making sure that those smaller, more…

There's a new 'Black Wave' in cinema that got us really excited, guys! These movies show different sides of the Black experience and often deal with sensitive subjects. By now you know we're big fans of 'Pariah' (directed by Dee Rees), as we've been supporting the film way before it blew up.

Outstanding Actors: Five Performances That Didn't Get Their Due (Yet)

For me, another awards season means one thing: another chance to be disappointed. If you are like me you may find yourself scratching your head at the two hours of the SAGS, Oscars or the Golden Globes (if you make it that far) wondering: is this really the definitive best Hollywood had to offer this year?
