Jack Rico’s Top 10 Movies Of 2016

12.29.2016 | By |

 

It’s hard to look back at 2016 and not think how tragic it was to lose our beloved artistic icons. But when it comes to motion pictures, there were a couple silver linings one can sanguinely lean on as bright spots. Though this was by far the year of superheroes and animated films, it was also the year where we witnessed the Golden Age of African-American storytelling. With remarkable films such as Moonlight, Hidden Figures, Fences, Birth of a Nation, Kicks, Loving, 13th and I Am Not Your Negro in theaters, the outlook for black cinema finally looks hopeful. Women and multiculturalism were also front and center on screen and behind the scenes and no film was more demonstrative of those attributes than Rogue One. Movies, in general, impact people differently and I believe the Top 10 Movies I have selected above not only reflect those qualities, but provide the standard of excellence in cinema this year.

Episode 14 – Fake News, Rogue One, Golden Globe/SAG Nominations

12.18.2016 | By |



On this episode 14 of the Highly Relevant podcast, we’re reintroducing some pop culture elements back into the show, but I’m keeping politics because Donald Trump has blurred the lines of the affairs of the state and entertainment. No one seems to know what’s what anymore? Regardless, many things have happened in entertainment this week such as the Golden Globes/SAG/Grammy nominations as well as the arrival of “Star Wars: Rogue One” in theaters worth talking about plus more.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Movie Review)

12.13.2016 | By |

The 1-4-0: #RogueOne is not a better film experience than #TheForceAwakens, but it is a solid sci-fi, action film that provides high entertainment value and some nostalgic “cameos” for old-school fans. Read More

The New ‘Spider-Man Homecoming’ Trailer Is Here!

12.9.2016 | By |

I’m glad Spider-Man is coming back to the screen with Marvel Studios behind it. It’s what every superhero fan always wanted, but there are some slight problems I can’t get passed. One, the suit. Doesn’t it look cheap to you? Two, this storyline really takes Spidey and Peter Parker to the stone age. He “is not ready to save the world yet.” You can’t wind the character that far back after giving us so many Spidey films since the last  14 years. Hopefully this is the version everyone sticks with.  Read More

Episode 12 – Trump as President… How Do We Move Forward?

11.18.2016 | By |



In this episode I chat with Sean Braswell (2:18), a Senior Writer at OZY.com, to take me through who he thinks are the top political contenders poised to challenge Trump in 2020; and are we officially now in the “Age of the Celebrity Presidents”? With The Rock now also interested in becoming President, how serious do we take our celebrity’s political ambitions moving forward? Also, is the psychology of America shifting to the 60’s culture wars? What is the future of multiculturalism in America and what is our role in it? VOX.com writer Sean Illing (11:33) explains the complexities in maintaining a multiethnic democracy. I will then be joined by reporter Oliver Staley (21:56) from the business website QUARTZ to illustrate the potential threat to corporate workplace inclusion under the Trump administration. And we end with same-sex marriage attorney and Trump supporter Brad Berfas (30:42) about the realistic outlook at Trump nullifying same-sex marriages. Read More
