Hidden Figures is more than a movie it is a history lesson and beautiful tribute to a group of African American women who were left in the shadows for far too long. Well Sunday night when the actors of the film were honored with the SAG Award for the Best Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, Taraji P Henson quickly turned her thoughts to the real life She-ro’s who they portrayed.

It was an emotional moment and watch Janelle Monet’s tearful reaction to Taraji’s beautiful words.

BTW, Hidden Figures, which was made for a mere 25 Million dollars, to date has grossed more than 100 million dollars worldwide. Making it one of the highest grossing films that was nominated during awards season.


Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First



If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
