The Worst Day Of My Life

It’s strange how certain days that are memorable have certain familiarities to them. When I was with my ex, she got admitted to the hospital on Jan. 2, 2018 with pnuemonia and RSV. We drove to a Tulsa hospital in the middle of the night. A year later, on Jan. 2, 2019, we were back…

‘Bloody’ Good Remake Of Valentine Horror/Slasher Classic

They say the best way to criticize a movie is to make a better movie. No one was calling for a remake of the 1981 horror/slasher classic My Bloody Valentine. But as the old saying goes, “What’s old is new again.” The 3-D format had become popular again around the end of the 2000s and…

‘Pamela: A Love Story’ Is A Candid, Intimate Eye-Opener

‘You People’ Is Offensive To All People

You People wants to be a modern day Millennial version of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. We already got this similar reversal premise with the 2005 Guess Who with Bernie Mac and Ashton Kutcher in a more sitcom setting where a white man is dating a black woman and the Mac plays the father who…

Tyre Nichols’ Death Proves Law Enforcement Is Out of Control

My mom once told a story of my older brother when he was little. I don’t remember it so I must’ve been an infant/toddler. My mom had been pulled over for some traffic violations or something. I don’t know if the officer cited her or gave her a warning, but my brother was relieved. “Mom,…

‘Amber’ Documentary Gives Life To Murdered Girl

The current detective who is overseeing the murdered case of Amber Hagerman says he had no idea the AMBER Alert system inspired by a case in his own hometown of Arlington, Texas while growing up. And that’s what Peacock’s Amber: The Girl Behind the Alert hopes to change. On Jan. 15, 1996, Amber, only 9,…
