Dr. Sleep (2019)

Available on HBO “Dr. Sleep” is a horror film directed by Mike Flannigan, known for his other works like “Haunting of Hill House”, “Gerald’s Game”, and “Hush”.

“Waves”(2019)

Available to rent on streaming services. It’s only $1 on Amazon. “Waves” is another film that I am recommending to go along with the theme of African American movies. Although the director, Trey Edward Shults, isn’t African American, the majority of the cast is African American. If you read through my top 10 films of … Continue reading ““Waves”(2019)”

“Moonlight” (2016)

Mico Recommends Available on Netflix I’ve noticed that Netflix is recommending a lot of black directed films so I thought I would also recommend some of my favorite black directed movies. “Moonlight” is a film directed by Barry Jenkins who has also made “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “Medicine for Meloncholy”. Although this film … Continue reading ““Moonlight” (2016)”

“Boy” (2010)

Available for free on Amazon Prime and Vudu “Boy” is a New Zealand film directed by Taika Waititi. He’s mostly known for directing the good “Thor” movie but after catching up on some of his old stuff I would say he’s way too talented to just be making formulated super hero movies. “Boy” is a … Continue reading ““Boy” (2010)”

Zombieland: Double Tap

“Zombieland: Double Tap” was the unexpected sequel to “Zombieland” aaaand it was pretty bad. So bad that my first attempt at watching it I had to turn it off. Just like the first movie, “Double Tap” revolves around Columbus and the gang surviving in this zombie apocalypse. As I mentioned before, I could not get … Continue reading “Zombieland: Double Tap”

Outer Banks (2020)

Outer Banks is a teen drama/mystery show about a young John B, a boy who lost his father and is trying to figure out his whereabouts.

Available on Netflix “Becoming” is a Netflix documentary that is centered around the former first lady, Michelle Obama, and her tour for her autobiography, “Becoming”.

Idle Hands (1999)

Available to rent on streaming platforms. I was recommended this movie recently and have been kinda putting it off to catch up on my watch list. It was old, it looked very cheesy, and I also thought it would just be a regular mediocre horror movie. “Idle Hand”is a weird dark comedy that satirizes a … Continue reading “Idle Hands (1999)”
