Sup Y'all So here we are, back on time with this "newsletter." As the big bbq/fireworks/drunken weekend approaches us, here's a few flicks you can grab to help the long days pass you by. Ahem:
Barbershop 2: Back in the Habit: okay, so the "Back in the Habit" isn't part of the title but it's a pretty kick-ass reference to Sister Act. Anywho, Ice Cube reprises his role as the owner of an "urban," you guessed it--barbershop. Only this time, Queen Latifah comes rollin in. Also, Cedric gets even crazier! Aside from that, the box doesn't give any clues as to what the plot is, so by my guess, Anthony Anderson gets the crazy idea of trying to steal an ATM machine, except bad karma keeps ruining his plans! I don't know, let me know.
Cold Mountain: This box office critic's fave hits the plastic on two discs! Set during the Civil War, starring one Brit, one Aussie, and a Southern Belle all as full blooded Americans. Oh, the irony. At first, I thought this movie was called Cold Shoulder, when the Oscars snubbed it for best pic! Oh! Shnaps! Sorry Anthony Minghella!
Independents Day: This little documentary goes deep inside the Sundance Film Festival and all it's craziness. I would think this lies on the educational side, for all of you soon-to-be David Lynch's out there getting to know the business. My advice: work here instead.
Perfect Score: MTV produced this movie about cheating on the SATs. How fitting. Stars a yet to blow up starlett Scarlett Johansson. Its kinda like Cheaters, or a high school you never went to. Une Femme est une Femme: Criterion put out this beautiful edition of the film. A 100% must for any cinephile. I know it's expensive, but at least rent it dammit.
That's it for today. I promise better stuffs next week. See y'all!
