    JOHN HENRY (2020)

    MOVIE REVIEW OF ”JOHN HENRY” Life isn’t fair for anybody in first-time writer & director Will Forbes’ “John Henry,” (*** OUT OF ****) a simple but savage thug-life thriller with brawny Terry Crews tangling with Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges.  Clocking in at 91-minutes, this predictable but entertaining, R-rated melodrama concerns an interesting relationship between the heroic […]

This slam-bang, hard-boiled, knuckle-fisted […]

    The music of cream

    Interview With The Music of Cream Legacies are tricky. You can’t see or touch them, yet they can be an unbearable weight to carry around. One has to imagine that’s the case for Kofi Baker, son of late Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Ginger Baker. Like his father, the younger Baker is a drummer. […]
