Netflix Reveals First ‘Narcos: Mexico’ Teaser Starring Diego Luna and Michael Peña

Let’s not kid ourselves. Latinos are invisible in movies, but they do have some juice on TV. Narcos: Mexico is an example when Latino star power (Latino American and US Latino) teams up together with a relevant story that has proven to attract White, Black and even Asian audiences. Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘Christopher Robin,’ ‘The Spy Who Dumped Me,’ ‘Never Going Back’

This is a very good ‘This Week In Movies’. There’s a little bit for everyone from some family fair, comedy, documentaries and indie with some fresh faces and rising stars. First up is Disney’s Christopher Robin, essentially a live-action Winnie The Pooh movie. This one should choke on you up.  If you’re into politics, author Dinesh D’Souza compares Abraham Lincoln’s presidency to Trump’s in Death of a Nation, and indie film Never Goin’ Back stars Argentine actress Camila Morrone who is a star in the making harkening  back to Italy’s Sofia Loren.  See what else is here that you might like to see and GO SEE IT! And remember to listen to our podcast this Friday for our review of movies and interviews with filmmakers and other notable figures of American and Latino pop culture.

With his fourth solo album titled Encuentro, he mixes the sounds of vallenato from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, with jazz and bossa nova, resulting in a beautiful and unique sound of Latin Jazz.

This Week In Movies: ‘Equalizer 2,’ ‘Mamma Mia 2,’ ‘Blindspotting’

‘This Week In Movies’ we take a look at the new movie of one of America’s greatest actors – Denzel Washington. Though his film Equalizer 2 is not a prestige film, if its anything like the original, it should be fun. Another great American actor releasing a film is Meryl Streep. Her Mamma Mia sequel should target women and those looking for romantic stories to reinforce their belief in everlasting love. Finally, former Broadway Hamilton actor Daveed Diggs makes an Oakland film that should be talked about after you leave the  theater. Enjoy the trailers and remember to listen to our podcast this Friday for our review of movies and interviews with filmmakers and other notable figures of American pop culture. Read More
