Missing Link Passes

This April, meet Mr. Link: 8 feet tall, 630 lbs, and covered in fur, but don’t let his appearance fool you… he is funny, sweet, and adorably literal, making him the world’s most lovable legend at the heart of Missing Link, the globe-trotting family adventure from LAIKA. Tired of living a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Link recruits fearless explorer Sir Lionel Frost to guide him on a journey to find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, our fearless trio of explorers encounter more than their fair share of peril as they travel to the far reaches of the world to help their new friend. Through it all, the three learn that sometimes you can find a family in the places you least expect.

Little Passes

Girls Trip’s Regina Hall and Black-ish’s Marsai Martin both star as Jordan Sanders — Hall as the take-no-prisoners tech mogul adult version of Jordan and Martin as the 13-year-old version of her who wakes up in her adult self’s penthouse just before a do-or-die presentation.

Insecure’s Issa Rae plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April, the only one in on the secret that her daily tormentor is now trapped in an awkward tween body just as everything is on the line. Little is an irreverent new comedy about the price of success, the power of sisterhood and having a second chance to grow up — and glow up — right.

Little

Here’s your chance to snag two tickets to the April 9th screening of Little. Comment below with your favorite Marsai Martin moment. I absolutely love her character, Diane, on black-ish. My favorite moment is when Diane argues with Charlie.  Classic!

Imagery is Everything in ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ (March 14)

African Americans in film are having the best year ever! We are barely over 70 days into 2018 and “Black Panther” tops the box office for the fourth week in a row ($41.1 million), and right behind it this past weekend is another Disney movie, “A Wrinkle in Time” ($33.3 million).

Directed by a Black woman, Ava Duvernay, “A Wrinkle in Time” is based on a 1962 novel about a sibling duo who searches through space and time for their missing father. The film stars Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and newcomer Storm Reid.

Although Oprah did sprinkle massive amounts of the greatness in this film, it was 14-year-old Reid who stole the show. Reid, who had a small role in “12 Years a Slave,” plays main character and big sister, Meg Murray. She is amazing, filling really big shoes with a small amount of effort. Her role is very important for little Black girls. It changes the imagery of what it means to be a young Black student.

Movie Scene Queen is hosting a screening on Monday, March 5, 2018.  Please comment below with your favorite Oprah moment.  It’s so hard to choose.  Recently, Oprah Winfrey was at a press event promoting this movie and she spoke so eloquently about negative forces.  Her explanation will stick with me for the rest of my life.  It’s so easy to be cynical.  But, it’s more rewarding to be the light.

For tickets to the February 21st screening of Annihilation, please comment below with your favorite Natalie Portman film.  I still have yet to see Jackie (2016), but I thought No Strings Attached (2011) with Ashton Kutcher was a cute movie.
