Movie Scene Queen has your opportunity to catch a special screening of The Upside on Wednesday, January 9 in the Waterfront.  For tickets, please comment below with your favorite Kevin Hart moment.  My favorite Kevin Hart moment is during one of his early stand-ups when he got into an argument with his wife and she told everybody that he pees in the bed.  His response, “That’s Mountain Dew!”  I die every single time.

‘The Hate U Give’ upholds Tupac’s legacy, connects with today’s youth (Merecedes’ Movie Review Oct. 10)

Based on Angie Thomas’ 2017 same name novel, “The Hate U Give” follows Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg), a Black teenager forced to deal with adult-like problems, when her friend is killed by police. Like so many other young Black people, Starr experiences some of the world’s most difficult scenarios prematurely. The movie is an emotional roller coaster permeated with grief, joy, sorrow, and hilarity.

The film has a hard-hitting cast—Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Common, Issa Rae, and Anthony Mackie. The “starr” who shined the brightest though is Amandla Stenberg. She is perfect. The 19-year-old captures both the innocence and strength of Black femininity. If “The Hate U Give” is any indication of her talent and merit, I’d love to see more of her on the big screen.

The Hate U Give Passes {Part Two}

Starring Amandla Stenberg, Regina Hall, and Russel Hornsby, Starr Carter (Stenberg) is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer.  Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, with Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, Algee Smith, Sabrina Carpenter, Common and Anthony Mackie.

I know this isn’t the best way to highlight public education. But, our school cafeteria locked from the inside so we used to lock students, staff, and security out all the time.  One time someone (not me) took it too far and started a big fight.  All in all, it still was a really good day and no one was seriously injured.
