Screen Savor: Get Scared

Don’t be put off by the Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner meets The Stepford Wives / Rosemary’s Baby vibe of Get Out (Universal), because Jordan Peele’s mind-blowing debut as writer and director, is so much more. It’s a smart comedy, a reverent and referential horror flick, and it’s a meaningful statement about race in the age of Trump. It’s also the first step to forgiving Peele for 2016’s abysmal Keanu.

Looking to take a break from the sweltering heat of Baltimore Pride weekend festivities? The SNF Parkway Theatre will be hosting special screenings during Pride weekend. Among the offerings is Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party, a 2015 drama written and directed by Stephen Cone, exploring a 17-year-old boy coming to grips with his sexuality during an emotionally charged party.

What’s up? Gay Docs

It’s been said that timing is everything. Raoul Peck’s James Baldwin doc I Am Not Your Negro, opening in theaters in the wake of Representative and civil rights icon John Lewis’ public feud with President Trump, is proof positive of that. Owing as much to recent film such as Selma and Birth of a Nation as it does to Hidden Figures and 13th, I Am Not Your Negro is required viewing.

You’re a Wonder, Wonder Woman

Bringing the classic female superhero to the big screen

Warner Brothers has been struggling to leverage its DC Comics brand to build a cinematic universe to rival that of Marvel Comics and Disney. Not that any of their films have been financial flops (despite what many would claim) but they haven’t exactly been crowdpleasers with their relentlessly dark tone and cavalier attitude toward the source materials. Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad have divided audiences and not made many optimistic about the upcoming films, including Justice League. But now we have a glimmer of hope.

In the five years since the release of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, there has been a lot of love/hate for the film and a flip and flop as to whether the movie was set in the same universe as Scott’s 1979 masterpiece Alien. There were obvious elements connecting the films, but Scott always seemed reluctant to say they had anything to do with each other.

Until now.
