‘Fatman’ in Cinemas on December 4th

A dark and funny twist to Santa

Published

on

The plot for the movie sounded weird enough when we first heard about it. Depending on the writing, that can only be a good thing. The trailer for Fatman, starring Mel Gibson, Walton Goggings, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Chance Hurstfield, has landed. And I’m still rather keen.

SYNOPSIS:

Spoiled, rich kid, 12-year-old, Billy Wenan lives with his ailing grandmother and pines for attention from his absentee father. He rules the house with an iron fist and shows no remorse when being cruel to the hired help. On Christmas morning, after receiving a lump of coal in his stocking, Billy decides to hire a hitman, known only as Skinny Man, to kill Santa.

Santa, also known as Chris Cringle, is in the middle of a financial struggle. The rising number of naughty has caused his government subsidy to slide below his current budget. Working along-side his faithful and pragmatic wife, Ruth, together, they fight to keep the lights on in the workshop and the elves employed. Reaching the end of their rope, they’re forced to enter a two-month contract with the U.S. military.

As Skinny Man makes his way toward Chris, we realize he harbours a twisted personal vendetta of his own. And when their two worlds collide, Chris must rise to the occasion to keep the Christmas spirit – and himself – alive.

Everything you Need to Know about the James Bond Pop Up Channel

Dapper tuxedos, fast cars and deadly villains.

Published

on

I’m hunting down some good fat bomb recipes for a yummy treat while bingeing on all the James Bond movies through the decades. While fans of the iconic action thriller franchise wait for the looming 007 No Time To Die movie with Daniel Craig, M-Net Movies is bringing back the 007 James Bond pop-up channel.

Following the success of this pop up in early 2020, the channel is once more casting its spotlight on the suave, debonair, and dapper dressed secret service agent James Bond.

This time, however, the thrilling pop-up channel on DStv channel 111 will not only be open to DStv Premium subscribers but also DStv Compact Plus and Compact subscribers for the first time, starting from Friday, 22 January 2021, until Sunday, 31 January 2021.

This will allow for a vast number of DStv subscribers, consisting of diehard Bond fans as well as new, young 007 admirers, to indulge themselves, from 10:00 until midnight, in the ultimate James Bond experience. It includes the dapper tuxedos, fast cars, sultry bond girls, exotic locations, mind-blowing gadgets, deadly villains, and martinis, which are served shaken, not stirred, of course.

The ten-days Bond film marathon, featuring the charming actors who have played the iconic 007 role, from Pierce Brosnan to Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and current Bond Daniel Craig, will showcase iconic films from the 007 film franchise.

The movies will be screened chronologically, starting with the first film in the series released 59 years ago, Dr. No (1962), to the latest Bond film and box office hit, Spectre (2015).

Viewers can watch this pop-up channel from any device at any time. All the films that will be screened as part of the pop-up channel will also be available on DStv Catch Up until Sunday, 28 February 2021.

In addition, DStv Family and Access subscribers can also access the pop-up channel through the DStv Add Movies offering, which is an add-on service that will also give viewers access to blockbuster movie channels M-Net Movies 1 (DStv channel 104), M-Net Movies 2 (DStv channel 106), and fliekNet (DStv channel 149).

TOP PICK – Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom has Landed on Netflix

It’s got a 99% score on Rotten Tomatoes!

Published

on

SYNOPSISTensions and temperatures rise over the course of an afternoon recording session in 1920s Chicago as a band of musicians await trailblazing performer, the legendary “Mother of the Blues,” Ma Rainey (Academy Award® winner Viola Davis).

Late to the session, the fearless, fiery Ma engages in a battle of wills with her white manager and producer over control of her music. As the band waits in the studio’s claustrophobic rehearsal room, ambitious cornet player Levee (Chadwick Boseman) — who has an eye for Ma’s girlfriend and is determined to stake his own claim on the music industry — spurs his fellow musicians into an eruption of stories revealing truths that will forever change the course of their lives.

Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (2020): (L to R) Chadwick Boseman as Levee, Glynn Turman as Toldeo, Michael Potts as Slow Drag, Colman Domingo as Cutler. Cr. David Lee / Netflix

Adapted from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s play, MA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOM celebrates the transformative power of the blues and the artists who refuse to let society’s prejudices dictate their worth.

Directed by George C. Wolfe and adapted for the screen by Ruben Santiago-Hudson, the film is produced by Fences Oscar® nominees Denzel Washington and Todd Black. Colman Domingo, Glynn Turman, Michael Potts, Taylour Paige, Dusan Brown, Jeremy Shamos and Jonny Coyne co-star alongside Grammy® winner Branford Marsalis’ score.
