Summer, Summer movie time!!
I get a warm and fuzzy feeling inside when I think about the movies we have just waiting for us to watch. The month of May definitely took us on an ass kicking adventure, particularly with John Wicks lethal ass. I know June is going to be just as beastly with the movie selection that we have.
- Dark Phoenix – June 7th
I personally think Sophie Turner is gonna be phenomenal in this role!!! I’m so excited to see her portrayal of the “Dark Phoenix”, Jean Grey’s alter ego and arguably one of the greatest enemies the X-Men ever faced. I hope this movie will kind of make up for the original X-Men movies which fell a little sort in the epicness department. The X-Men story is such a great comic and was such a good cartoon growing up, I really hope this movie does The Phoenix story justice
- Shaft – June 14th
Daaaaaaaaammnn right! Who is da man?! Ok, I’mma stop lol, but seriously who isn’t excited about this movie?! We as the audience get three generations of Shaft, and I for one am all for it! I have high hopes for this movie; it seems to have everything needed to make an entertaining film. Including an amazingly talented writer, Kenya Barris creator of one of our favorite Blerdy shows Black-ish. As well as a magical cast including the great mutha fucka himself Samuel L. Jackson, Regina Hall (wit her fine ass), Jessie T. Usher, and the legend himself Richard Roundtree.
- MIB International – June 14th
Yeap, another Men in Black film but this time….international. AND with an appropriate amount of sexy cuz lets face it, Tommy Lee Jones just wasn’t cutting it. MIB International stars the absolutely dreamy and gorgeous Chris Hemsworth, and a beautiful example of black girl magic in Tessa Thompson, or basically Thor and Valkyrie. I actually enjoyed Men in Black III and I’m interested to see how International will continue the franchise.
- Toni Morrison: The Pieces I am – June 21st
Toni Morrison…icon, game-changer, and writer. The Beloved author takes us on a journey into her life, as we get a glimpse into the existence of this iconic storyteller and a look behind the themes that made the author such a legend. I’m excited for this window we get into the life of this queen; I know this documentary will only make my awe of her increase tremendously.
There’s a movie for your inner comic book nerd, a movie to encourage your black power enthusiasm, a movie for the space nerd inside of you, and a documentary for the soul; the June blerdy movies are filled with all the vibes necessary to fulfill all your movie needs. Let your imagination wander and your creativity blossom by being engulfed in a really good film this month.
Happy watching, and remember…Live well, prosper, and all dat sh*t!
