Lifetime never fails to deliver us some pretty decent movies. We have also loved their biopics as of late, namely Michel’le’s and Toni Braxton’s. Now the network is giving us some romance in a new movie Love At The 10th Date starring actresses Meagan Good and Kellee Stewart, and singers/actresses, Kelly Rowland and Keri Hilson! The film also stars Brandon T. Jackson and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman,  and features an appearance from rapper Chief Keef! Any film with a cast like this has to be worth watching!

“Love By The 10th Date” follows Gabby (Good), Nell (Stewart), Billie (Hilson) and Margot (Rowland) who balance their dating adventures alongside their career ambitions at an upscale digital magazine in Los Angeles, under the watchful eye of their editor, Maureen (Deeley). Inspired by the site’s relationship advice column to find the one, Gabby and Nell embark on their own journeys towards the elusive 10th date, the dating world’s Holy Grail when it comes to commitment. Meanwhile, Billie finds herself at a major crossroads in her marriage and Margot unsuccessfully tries to fight her growing attraction to a famously controversial reggae musician she is assigned to interview. As the ladies navigate the ups and downs of modern dating, romance, exes and friendships, they learn what they really want out of life and love. Jackson stars as Dante, a creative director at the site and Bowyer-Chapman is Freddy, Nell’s bisexual boyfriend.

Check out the trailer below!

We will definitely be watching this! We just wonder is that true? Is the 10th Date really “The Holy Grail” relationship commitments? If so that would explain why some of us are still single and cannot get past second dates. We digress…Nevertheless this looks amazing. We will be tuning in on Saturday, January 28th at 8 PM EST. Check your local listing for channels and showtimes! Happy viewing!

We at Kontrol Magazine love movies–action, romance, horror, sci-fi–you name it! However, there are very few films we would say you HAVE to see and Hidden Figures is definitely one of them!

Hidden Figures is based on a true untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), who are three incredibly intelligent and talented African American women who managed to land jobs at NASA back in the 1960’s when they were often discriminated against for both their race and gender.

[VIDEO] The Awareness of James Baldwin– “I Am Not Your Negro” (@iamnotyournegro)

i am not your negro movie poster

James Baldwin will forever be remembered as one of the world’s greatest writers, playwrights, civil rights activist, and humanitarians.

His works fully capture what it means to be Black in America. Although it has been nearly twenty years since his death, and nearly fifty years since he first began to speak out against the racism pervading the United States, his lessons are as relevant as ever!

i am not your negro movie poster

Thankfully a documentary has been released, I Am Not Your Negro.  Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, the film takes place in 1979 when James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House, which were personal accounts of the lives and successive assassinations of his 3 close friends, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King. I Am Not Your Negro is how Raoul Peck’s envisioned the book Baldwin didn’t finish. Keep in Baldwin’s own words, the documentary is a radical narration about race in America.

Check out the trailer below:

Written by James Baldwin and directed by Raoul Peck. This film is truly the definition of “Staying Woke!” Anyone with a brain or working television knows that race relations are currently at a low in this country today. I Am Not Your Negro will serve as a reminder to the masses, in particular Black youths, that they are more than what society would make of them.

We are definitely looking forward to seeing this film and you can too in select  theaters on February  3, 2017!
