    Space Jam: A New Legacy

    ★★★½

    I’m rating this 3.5 stars off enjoyability alone. 

    LeBron’s acting started off iffy. Almost everything he says at the start of the film sounded like motivational speaker one-liners. As the film progressed, it seemed like his acting skills did as well and by the end of it, I was decently content with his performance.

    Malcolm & Marie

    ★★★½

    All the roller coaster-esque ups and downs of a relationship chronicled between up & coming filmmaker Malcolm, and his former-addict girlfriend Marie.

    Zendaya further proves that her days as a Disney kid are FAR gone and arguably carries the film not only with multiple amazing monologues but facial expressions that any woman unlucky enough to have to endure emotional and verbal abuse could sympathize with. The scene with her acting while acting was amazing and by far the highest point of…
