Please comment below with your favorite down South movie.  From the deep Southern accents to tackling the big issues (domestic abuse, racism, civil rights, etc.), my favorite down South movie is Fried Green Tomatoes (1991).

A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS follows our three under-appreciated and over-burdened women as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. And if creating a more perfect holiday for their families wasn’t hard enough, they have to do all of that while hosting and entertaining their own mothers. By the end of the journey, our moms will redefine how to make the holidays special for all and discover a closer relationship with their mothers.

‘Spider-Man’ displays diversity, ‘Despicable Me 3’ shows off

Summer is such an exciting time for the cinemas. Not only are the year’s best films released during this season, but the movie theater is the best place to sit back, relax, and beat the heat. I have two family-friendly flicks for you to catch this week: “Despicable Me 3” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

After refusing to go back to a life of crime, the yellow cuddly minions desert their fearless leader, Gru (Steve Carrell). But, after losing his job and finding his long-lost twin brother, Dru (also Carrell), Gru is tempted to go back to his villainous ways.

“Despicable Me 3” is as cute and funny as its predecessors, “Despicable Me” (2010) and Despicable Me 2” (2013). There are so many random parts of the movie, but it all comes together for a wacky, whimsical animation.

The glue that holds this film series together is Gru. Carrell worked double-time in the third installment with the introduction of the new character. The audience gets twice the amount of clean comedy. Carrell is a comedic genius, and his success with “Despicable Me 3” only confirms his range and brilliance.

‘Dear White People’: A Letter to the Masses

Netlfix released a 10-chapter series (April 28) about the Black students at the Ivy League college Winchester University.

Few in numbers, these students quickly discover that race plays a significant role in their interactions on campus. After a prestigious White group throws a Blackface Halloween party, tensions rise and creates a domino effect of other racially-motivated events.

I appreciate the transition from the big screen to computer screen. The Netflix series picked up right where the 2014 film left off, and, equally important, the TV series retained some actors from the movie. I was skeptical at first. But, the TV show version of “Dear White People” ceases all apprehensions with its dry humor and hard truths.

Even the title makes White people cringe of guilt and misconception. What is typically the proper letter salutation has now become an outcry for millions of voices to be heard.

Florence Foster Jenkins Passes

Set in 1940s New York, Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her “husband” and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge.

In theaters August 12, Florence Foster Jenkins will be screening at AMC Waterfront 22 on Monday, August 8 at 7:30pm.  Please comment below with your favorite Meryl Streep or Hugh Grant moments.  Basically any movie that includes Hugh Grant and love is a film I want to see.  I enjoyed Notting Hill (1999), Love Actually (2003), and Nine Months (1995).
