Ever since the surprise success of the Fox TV show Glee audiences have been exposed to the world of choirs, high school show choirs, and the world of a capella. The film Pitch Perfect deals with the latter of the three.

Hi Chris McCoy. You've got a typo here. It's Keith Cadwallader. Not Caldallder. Thanks.

Re: “Hidden Figures

Keep cranking out focus based movies. Crank out some Gidget goes Hawaiian and Tammy movies with people of color. Make some love stories with people of color for the Hallmark channel, not just a few. People of color fall in love all the time. Try not to be stereotypical. Why does Taraji need to be a head jerking loudmouth. She does that well, give her a chance to show more sides of her acting ability. So many stars of so many shades why is this America only showing one side. Show the different shades of people that continue to make this country great. Why hide their stories? All good and intelligent and sweet and medically wonderful and moral are not only Caucasion. Enough already! American film is so pitifully tranparent.

Re: “Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures is a good movie. I don't think it is Oscar worthy but People"s Choice worthy. It makes you want to google these women and see who they were. I am apalled that people of color are deliberately deleted from historical occurances. It is seldom questioned when the only person of color is the doorman, maid or janitor. It is 2017.Why did it take so long for this movie to hit the screen. This movie did not dwell on the horrible atrocities of prejudice and bias. These women were not super heroes with capes and sexist Marvel orDC costumes, they were women with children and husbands, who happened to have underpaid jobs at NASA that they were quite qualified for. Americans seem to hate women, people of color and and big group of a mix of others they can find or invent a reason to hate. I am tired of hearing the complaining and whining of people who feel they have been treated unfairly. It was great to see a movie where a truth was divulged and the spirit of the day reminded us how ugly America was and is. Why is America so afraid to tell the truth about all of her people? Why suppress history ? Are we that pathetic? Good movie, thanks for teasing us with this little bit of history.

Re: “Politics and the Movies 4: Spartacus

Enjoyed your article on Spartacus. Kubrick and Trumbo made fantastic contributions to the making of the film. But in my mind Douglas's presence in front of and behind the camera hugely influenced the style, feel and messages conveyed in the movie. You may find my podcast on the movie "Spartacus the KD way" of interest. It also talks about the politics of the movie. It is the latest episode of Classic Hollywood MTC which can be found on ITunes, Stitcher, Tune-in and Spreaker.com. It can also be directly accessed via the following link:

Re: “Million Dollar Quartet Gets New Name, Premiere Date

The name change allows them to expand the story to other performers signed to and inspired by Sun Records. If the show is a hit, it gives them much more material for episodes/seasons and hopefully more work for the industry here in Memphis! Ike IS in that publicity photo, don't remember seeing him standing around the piano in the famous quartet photo.
