Harlem Nights (1989)

Harlem Nights was a dream come true for Eddie Murphy. Famous for his stand comedy impersonations of Richard Pryor, Murphy grew up idolizing the comedian. In 1989, he finally had the opportunity to work with the legend. The results were pretty good if I say so myself.  I used to own this movie on DVD … More Harlem Nights (1989)

Stander (2003)

It is very random that I am at home, and I turn on the cable (after dusting it off, of course) and browse the movie channels we pay for and never use. With no rhyme or reason, I clicked on a movie called Stander. I didn’t even know what it was about, but it was … More Stander (2003)
