Buzz it or Bash it? Mudbound on Netflix starring Mary J Blige | Movie Buzz | Follow the Buzz DryerBuzz

#DryerBuzz — We tried to watch Mudbound. May have to give it a second pass another time. This day wasn’t that day.  We only leaned in about fifteen minutes in after we pressed play.  Then came the n-word, race and prejudice to the point we were like — not today! Looks like it could be a great film, but must the struggle always come in comparison with white versus black. That ain’t diversity. Not today Mudbound. Did you Buzz it or Bash it? At what point does the movie get…

Watch Marshall Trailer | Chadwick Boseman, Sterling K Brown, Josh Gad

Movie Buzz — From Open Road Films — Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP.

Stop Guilting Me to See Black Movies | Follow the Buzz DryerBuzz

#DryerBuzz — Stop begging me to see black movies. I have it on authority that Hollywood will always make black movies — at least a few a year. Black movies will always rank as blockbusters.  Even in that rare occurrence, we gather together to see ourselves, or representatives of us on the big screen. Yet, the baggage and burden of helping achieve blockbuster status is and always was too much. Forcing my dollar on Hollywood just ain’t my thang — any more. Especially when the local stage looks like me…

#DryerBuzz — Oscars So Black

#DryerBuzz — it was the year of over correcting with a major wreck at the end. In a nut shell, this was the good, bad, ugly, and buzz from 2017 Oscars also known as Oscars so black. It started out great. With so many nominees of color, there was no talk of protest or boycott. Nothing to rain on Oscars parade except actual rain. From what we could stand, red carpet went great. Ryan Seacrest held down carpet for ENews and Robin Roberts for ABC with respective crews in tow. Questions…

the Clippings — What must it feel like to take home Oscars in a boycott year? Well . . . every year at Oscars pretty much a boycott year for one group or another.  The last century in America had it’s up and downs with only a few good years in between.  We still want to know what Donald Trump means by “great again.” Oscars, at 88, a national stage for film, is the place to air such dirty laundry.
