KG’s movie:

Hustle and Flow-

Terrance Howard, the original War Machine in Iron Man, becomes a rapper while pimping women out in Memphis. And yes, we have a DJ Qualls sighting. Goddamn, that’s one ugly dude but a decent film.

6.5/10

KI’s movie

Coming 2 America (2021)

  • Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, newly-crowned King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that has them traversing the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens, New York – where it all began.
  • KG did an extensive review of his own, so I’ll keep it brief. While I didn’t hate this as much as my esteemed colleague, it was definitely not great. The first half had some funny moments and the nostalgia factor was HIGH, then it hit a wall. The actual plot of the film was boring and a real retread of the original…without the charm. By the end of the movie it felt like it had dragged on for WAY too long – not a good sign for a comedy. But the truth is, I never expected it to be good, so it was slightly better than my VERY low expectations.
