Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: THE Film Committee 4th Edition
It’s been a minute since we checked in and did a list of additions for the film fan’s library.
Akan Bosemann: I was sitting back the other day flipping through channels and this Spike Lee Joint came on that took me back in time. If you love the beautiful game of Basketball, then “He Got Game” is a must have in your library.
Ray Allen’s acting debut is authentic and powerful. The father and son bond and the importance of that relationship is the heart and central theme of this film. Made me want to hug my dad. That scene at the end on the court between Denzel and Ray was simply honest. Incredible. Life.
T.D Moody: This is a classic and in our current era of “black history” films such as “The Help” and “The Butler” I select the stirring “A Lesson Before Dying”. A young black male sentenced to death has to be taught he’s a man not a “hog” before his execution.
Jesse Murphy: I’m going back a ways with my pick this time around. Anyone remember “White Men Can’t Jump”? Nuff said.
Steve. D: Ok so being that we’re officially 9 days into Shoctober my selection is Machete. This by far is one of the goriest blood and guts violent films I’ve ever seen. I appreciate the style of cinematography and the writing. I was persuaded to find out what this film was about in lieu of Machete Kills due out this week.
