Elizabeth: The Golden Age Nominated for two well-deserved Academy Awards for Best Actress and Best Costume Design, "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" finds Cate Blanchett and director Shekhar Kapur returning to the world they created in 1998’s award-winning "Elizabeth." As the film opens, the year is 1585. Devout Catholic King Phillip II (Jordi Mollà) of Spain, the most powerful empire at the time, has thrown Europe into a holy war. The only thing that stands in his way is England and its Protestant Queen. Elizabeth’s cousin Mary Queen of Scots (Samantha Morton) is in prison at Fotheringhay Castle. She is next in line, has a son unlike The Virgin Queen, and is considered the rightful ruler of the country by Catholics. There is a fear among Elizabeth’s court that Catholics are likely to assassinate her in order to place Mary on the throne, which is why her ...

Talk to Me Set in Washington D.C., the film opens in May 1966 with WOL radio executive Dewey Hughes (Chiwetel Ejiofor) visiting his brother Milo (Mike Epps) in prison, where he’s serving 20 to life. Petey Greene (Don Cheadle) acts as a disc jockey as he broadcasts over the prison P.A. system. Milo has told his brother about Petey, but Dewey finds him crude and unfunny. As Dewey leaves the facility, he crosses paths with Petey who asks about a job at the radio station. Dewey has no interest in Petey due in part to his being a convict with at least five to ten left on his sentence. Rather than tell Petey “No” when he says he’s going to look him up when he gets out, Dewey replies, “You do that,” believing he will never hear from Petey again. During a meeting at ...

Elizabeth “Elizabeth” is a return to the pomp and splendor Hollywood used to present decades ago. It’s also the first movie in what is probably going to be a trilogy. The second movie, featuring Cate Blanchett again in the title role of Queen Elizabeth, is “Elizabeth: the Golden Age”. It came out in October of 2007 and will be hitting DVDs in February 2008, so in a month fans of the movies can pick them both up on HD DVD format. I recently read a biography of Queen Elizabeth. I was familiar with most of the country’s economic, political, and religious activities. Elizabeth was an amazing woman who ascended to the throne at a time that would have destroyed most men. The fact that she was a woman and overcame religious conflict makes her successes even more amazing and unparalleled. The movie deals ...

Hurricane, The “The Hurricane” is one of those films that are loved by true movie watchers and not just people who go to the theater to kill an hour and a half or two hours. It has deep, textured storytelling, character building, and plenty of room for an actor as gifted as Denzel Washington to do some of his best work. Too many movies are simply rushed through. “The Hurricane” gathers intensity slowly, the delivers in an overwhelming rush just like its namesake. It helps that the movie has its roots in real life. Reuben “Hurricane” Carter is still alive today and doing his best at seventy years old to help wrongly convicted prisoners get out of prison and get on with their lives. Lesra Martin, the young man whose life was so drastically altered by his encounter with Carter’s book, “The Sixteenth ...
