Studio: Focus Features
Rated PG-13 | 94 Minutes
Release Date: June 29, 2018

My family and I went to see “that Mr. Rogers movie.” It’s sad when things like kindness and empathy are considered “weird,” isn’t it? My son incredulously asked, “Was he really that way in real life?” In the documentary, Won’t You be my Neighbor, that question is addressed, and the simple answer is yes. Fred Rogers was that way in real life. He was more as well. In a world of CGI space lords and blockbuster action movies, Fred Rogers is the biggest and best hero of any film in 2018.

Sherlock season 4 header

The game isn’t over yet for Sherlock Holmes; in fact, based on the way Sherlock Season 3 ended and what the 2016 special “The Abominable Bride” told us, it has only begun. The Season 4 teaser that was shown to us at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this summer says that everyone in Sherlock’s inner circle is threatened, but other than that, we don’t know much about the overall arc or what stories exactly Steven Moffat will draw from that will inspire each episode (there’s are some hints).

Now PBS has released a brand new image that doesn’t tell us much about Season 4, but does set the tone. Check out the image here below.

A Ripple of Hope

Streaming Review: A Ripple of HopeA Ripple of Hope
Netflix | Amazon Instant Video
DVD
Directed by Donald Boggs
Starring Martin Luther King, Jr., Robert F. Kennedy, John Lewis
PBS Home Video
Originally Released: April 04, 2008

"Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings. He died in the cause of that effort. In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the United States, it’s perhaps well to ask what kind of a nation we are and what direction we want to move in. "
Robert F. Kennedy

With Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 21, I opted to grab a streaming documentary in recognition of the day of remembrance. While most King documentaries focus on the man’s life, his famous speeches, his significance in the Civil Rights movement, or his murder, the short PBS documentary entitled A Ripple of Hope instead focuses on the historic speech made by Robert F. Kennedy on the day of Dr. King’s death.

It may be bold of me to say so, but it’s my belief that countless young people don’t understand King’s significance in this nation’s history – indeed, many of my own generation have little comprehension of his importance. We may know of him, but many of us did not live during the days of segregation and the uphill battle faced by African American during the time. And yet, we’ve all benefited from an improved prevailing social outlook and attitude in not only welcoming our cultural differences, but also in celebrating them in unity.
