You know that feeling when you’re walking down the street and you see your favorite artist’s name up in lights on a marquee sign — big bold letters in the sky and they exist for you to witness in real time?
Released two years after Chadwick Boseman’s passing, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” serves as both a moving tribute to the late actor and a masterclass in how to grieve our departed loved ones without letting those emotions control us.
After decades of struggling between a realistic setting with films like Christopher Nolan’s the Dark knight trilogy, “Watchmen,” Zack Snyder’s Superman trilogy, Matt Reeves’ Batman universe, Todd Phillips’ “Joker” and Marvel formulated camps like “Aquaman,” Alan Smithe’s “Suicide Squad” and R rated flicks like “Birds of Prey” and “The Suicide Squad,” DC has finally shifted it’s path and ushered towards a new era of fictional universe with the first film of phase 1 — “Black Adam.”
Director Jaume Collet-Serra showcases the morality of our favorite heroes while peeling back the sorrow-stricken pain of Black Adam, who has never been given his chance to shine until now. Most notably, the film works its best when every character is given a choice while traversing the gray confinement of good and evil.
Ayan Mukerji is among the big names in mainstream Bollywood, despite having only two films to his name prior to Brahmastra. Both have received critical acclaim and are popular with audiences.

When we talk about cinema, we’re talking about storytellers and, with a storyteller, comes a point of view—a style.
“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” is a simple taste of what the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) could offer going forward by letting directors find solace in their creative landscapes. I’m hoping Marvel continues to take chances and reap the rewards.
Robert Eggers tends to make movies that aren’t exactly for all audiences. His first movie “The Witch” is a slow burn that takes place in the early colonization of New England, with dialogue that is very accurate to the time. His next movie, “The Lighthouse,” while being darkly funny and showcasing great performances from Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, still has a relatively slow plot and not easily discernible language. “The Northman” is his first movie that pleases both the cinephile and the action-hungry audience members.
For eight seasons, the groundbreaking, Emmy Award–nominated comedy series “black-ish” was lauded for telling stories that shined a light on current events through the lens of a Black American family.
