Tyler Perry accomplishes the most serious film, taken from the 1975 play by Ntozake Shange“For Colored Girls.” It’s a riveting, heartfelt film entirely of poetry, so make sure you have yourself in tune before stepping out to watch this film. It may be a little hard to understand if you are not a person of poetry, but the film is magnificent.

The film takes you into the lives of a handful of black women in various walks of life, facing a crisis. Most of the dialogue is mainly of normal spoke conversation so don’t let a little poetry scare you, but be ready for one of the most unique films to hit the screen and it comes from Tyler Perry’s new 34th Street productions. The movie explores moments of tragedy, and monumental turning points as these ‘Colored Women [Girls]’ women open up their souls with brutal eloquence.

Megamind dominated over the weekend, especially in the box office numbers, but was it because of the movies popularity or the fact that it costs $4.00+ per ticket at the theater for 3D? Yes, Megamind was another animated film in 3D and let me be the first to say it’s not worth the 3D! There is no point for these films to keep coming out in this format.

POSTERS: The Holiday Has More Animated 3D For Your Eyes!!!

The animation studios are ready to grab your kids attention this holiday season and into summer 2011. They’re gearing up for another round of 3D mania to ruin your eyes. Yogi Bear, Tron Legacy, Narnia 3, Rio and Kung Fu Panda 2.

Let’s be honest mom and dad, 3D is not good for you nor your kids, take them to a 2D version…why you ask? After seeing these films, there is no reason for them to be in 3D in the first place. It’s a pure waste of money and another way for studios to hit the hight weekend numbers. Wake up 3D is WHACK!

See if you can out stair the Panda!!!

INSIDER: Why Did Martin Do Another Big Momma’s House 3???

Martin Lawrence is back again as Big Momma in Big Momma’s House 3!

Put it like this, don’t expect much from this lackluster sequel that missing all the punches and no Nia Long? At least someone was smart enough to say no to another installment.  The Best part is Brandon T. Jackson, but you can only do so much with a back script. the best part of the movie is Faizon Love, who has some of the funniest scenes.

PREMIER: Rachel McAdams Looks Stunning At The ‘Morning Glory’ Red Carpet

Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton were all spotted at the premiere of “Morning Glory” at the Ziegfeld Theatre [11/7] in New York City.

Doesn’t Rachel look Amazing, man she is one gorgeous woman. Dianne is looking fierce is a 60’s style throwback, love, love, love her…and finally Harrison the distinguished gentleman, but whats up with the lack diamond earing.

Believe it or not but this movie is produced by J.J. Abrams and written by Aline Brosh McKenna The Devil Wears Prada.  Director Roger Michell’s comedic glimpse into the cutthroat world of live television finds a desperate female news producer attempting to put out the flames between an anchorman Harrison Ford and his blustery but iconic co-host in a last-ditch effort to save their failing morning show.

But see who had a red carpet disaster inside…we bow are heads – I didn’t think there were such a thing a a blue flamingo. Not so cute.
