House of Cards Season 6 Falls Below Expectation

House of Cards returns for the final season!

Published

on

house of cards season 6

House of Cards could easily be described as Netflix’s flagship original series of yesteryear. For years it garnered critical acclaim and success at award shows. Fans of the show were beaming with adulation at the prospect of finally getting a fitting end to the series after a great five seasons. The amount of time it took to finish the series was a result of the real life scandal that Kevin Spacey had to face regarding his past.

It is with this backdrop, and the knowledge that Kevin would not be part of season six that we wanted to see the direction the show was going to take. Whether it was the enormity of the task that fell on Robin Wright’s shoulders to steer the ship as lead, or its the comparison or years gone by, but it just didn’t hit like it used to.

What We Know About House of Cards Season 6

The political drama has always depicted something that can be likened to musical chairs. The presidency has always been coveted by all that have stepped foot inside The Oval. The character of the amoral politician, Frank Underwood and his wife were alway willing to do whatever it takes to win. While under the shadow of her husband – even though she tried and failed a couple of times – the final chapter of the series was foretold with Frank stepped down as President and her ascending to the throne.

House of Cards

From the first episode of season six in which Spacey’s character starts to be a figment of memory, Claire sets the tone of the entire season by stamping her authority. While we learn that Frank’s death was cited as natural causes, Claire’s suspicions point to a larger conspiracy that drags his character on and on.

RELATED: MONEY HEIST SEASON 5 CONFIRMED

The series does paint the brutal truth about the sexism that still hovers over the candidate that occupies The Oval Office. There is a mixture of new additions to the show as well as familiar faces that we’ve grown to adore. The industry of the actors and actresses on the show is unquestionable. The issue lies in the storyline. The drudging of Spacey’s character only supported the notion that he made the show.

The cutaways to the audience don’t hit the same. With Frank, they seemed organic, unforced and unexpected. Claire’s – and House of Cards – blatant attempts at distancing themselves from everything Kevin Spacey built makes the season a borefest. Yet, the backstabbing and formation of new alliances always provide the shock factor that has been ace up the sleeve for the show.

Yvonne Orji’s ‘Momma, I Made It’ Comedy Special is a Damn Vibe!

Orji delights as she melts her West African and American black cultural experiences in a humorous vibe.

Published

Yvonne Orji Momma I Made Comedy Special Watch online in South Africa

We’ve been knew Yvonne Orji’s comic timing is something of a rarity. On Insecure, where she stars as ‘Molly’, the actress showcases both her range and ability to make viewers laugh at, and with her, even when we all know we shouldn’t be laughing.

Granted, on the previous season of the hit HBO series, which aired in South Africa on 1Magic (channel 103), she was hella moody and a tad high-horsey now that she’s booed up with that yummy Asian bae Andrew. Notwithstanding, Orji’s impressive delivery of the complex character has given us a glimpse into how funny she actually is.

And, damn!

On ‘Momma, I Made It‘, which is now available for streaming on Showmax, she’s finally doing nothing but bringing the damn jokes. The whole show was such a good vibe that right now we are basically ready to give the good sis our money as soon as her looming book, Bamboozled by Jesus: How God Tricked Me into Life of My Dreams, lands.

The comedy special, which will have you laughing for an hour, 2 minutes and 29 seconds straight, is a refreshing addition to the culture. Everything about it – from Yvonne Orji distilling her Nigerian-American heritage to Yvonne Orji, a comedian, actress and woman of colour who’s an African immigrant in America, being given a platform to take charge and share her craft, is the content we want to see splashed everywhere.

She melts her experiences of African and American black culture in one pot and dishes them back with the finesse and the humour that does not rely on outdated tropes. Since she’s so proudly anchored to her West African heritage as much as she is very much the hun who was raised in Maryland in the States, she navigates that space with tact.

So for a change, don’t jokes that thrive on ignorance about our culture, no shade.

The special intersperses footage shot in Nigeria in early January with the taping of her stand up show to a live audience at Howard University in Washington, D.C. The project is written and executive produced by Yvonne Orji herself, directed by Chris Robinson and executive produced by Michelle Caputo and Shannon Hartman.

New Netflix Movie This Week: The Old Guard

New Charlize Theron flick on Netflix!

Published

New Netflix Movie The Old Guard

Charlize Theron is back with another blockbuster action film titled The Old Guard. It’s safe to say that she’s reaching from her bag. It’s a complete 180 from her last box office movie where she co-starred alongside Nicole Kidman, and Margot Robbie on Bombshell.

The movie is reminiscent of some of Theron’s earlier roles, such as the bloody Mad Max: Fury Road and the sci-fi action thriller Aeon Flux. While her range as an award-winning actress is well documented in her filmography, its great to see her kick some ass after a while.

She captures the character of Andy ever so brilliantly, most notably the action choreography. Initially known as Andromache of Scythia, she leads a group of immortals as they navigate the world trying to survive extinction.

the old guard charlize theron

Having been around for over a couple thousand years, dying and coming back to life again, she uses all of her wits and experience to fend off those that want to wipe her off the face of the earth.

As the leader of a covert group of mercenaries, all sharing the rare ability to survive death, they continue to fight to protect the mortal world. She and her team do a good job of keeping a low radar until the are  recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed.

It’s up to Andy and Nile (played by KiKi Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetise their power by any means necessary.

Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Greg Rucka and Illustrated by Leandro Fernandez, this gritty,  action-packed story that shows just how living forever might be harder than it looks.

Don’t miss the official debut of The Old Guard this coming Friday on Netflix, 10 July 2020.

What We Know About Upcoming Colin Kaepernick Limited Series

‘Colin in Black & White’

Published

on

The adolescent life of all-star athlete and activist Colin Kaepernick will come to television screens around the world in Colin in Black & White, a new scripted limited series from Kaepernick and Academy Award Nominee and Emmy Award Winner Ava DuVernay.

The series will focus on Kaepernick’s formative high school years, lending meaningful insight into the acts and experiences that led him to become the activist he is today. Emmy Award Nominee Michael Starrbury writes and serves as executive producer, alongside DuVernay and Kaepernick who will appear as himself as the narrator of the series.

The six-episode series, which was conceived in 2019 and recently completed writing in May, provides an introspective look at Kaepernick’s early life as a Black child growing up with a white adopted family and his journey to become a great quarterback while defining his identity.

The limited series reunites Starrbury and DuVernay who last worked together on Netflix’s acclaimed When They See Us, which received 16 Emmy Award Nominations, including a nomination for Outstanding Writing for the duo and was recently honored with a Peabody Award.

“With his act of protest, Colin Kaepernick ignited a national conversation about race and justice with far-reaching consequences for football, culture and for him, personally,” said DuVernay. “Colin’s story has much to say about identity, sports and the enduring spirit of protest and resilience. I couldn’t be happier than to tell this story with the team at Netflix.”

“Too often we see race and Black stories portrayed through a white lens,” said Kaepernick. “We seek to give new perspective to the differing realities that Black people face. We explore the racial conflicts I faced as an adopted Black man in a white community, during my high school years. It’s an honor to bring these stories to life in collaboration with Ava for the world to see.”

“We’re proud to bring Colin’s experience and his creative vision to life as he joins Ava to share his powerful story and message with all our members around the world,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. “It is an unparalleled union of two strong and defining voices coming together to tell the story about what it’s like to be Black in America.”
