Hello everyone, and welcome to 111 Archer Avenue. What started as a film review blog has become my online judgment forum. I will review the occasional movie or DVD, post an interesting trailer, critique a newly-read book, talk about sports, and share my thoughts and opinions on random issues. You can also follow me on Twitter (@OlieCoen) or check out my work on DVDTalk.com. Thank you and enjoy!

Movie Trailer - Beyond the Lights

Director: Gina Prince-Bythewood
Starring: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Minnie Driver, Nate Parker
Release: November 14th, 2014

I'm gonna go out on a limb, or a ledge, and say that no one has ever caught someone by the arm as they dangled over empty space, looked them in the eye, said something inspirational, and then pulled them to safety.  That scene set the tone for the whole trailer for me, and I didn't like what I saw.  If I cared about how hard someone like Rhianna's life was I'd read their biography.  Sorry Minnie, you're awesome, but no thanks.
