Creed, Dope, & Straight Outta Compton are some of the reasons why I enjoyed going to movie theaters this year. All three films featured Black men coming of age and overcoming the ills of their environment and becoming the versions of themselves that they aspired to be in the face of adversity.
B-Easy’s Recently Watched is The Green Inferno.
Short-T’s Recently Watched & Recommend is the critically acclaimed and award deserving Fargo.
Sidenote: Kendrick believes that Charlize Theron (Mad Max:Fury Road), Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton), Director Ryan Coogler (Creed), and The Walking Dead were all snubbed.
