I’m Not Down With “White” Being Black

Laurence Fishburne and Perry White

This one might ruffle a few feathers, but hey – “Straight. No Chaser.” – right?

Not because I feel patronized by having [...]

Showing Love

I meant to do this a LONG time ago, but… better late than never, I suppose BIG UPS to @JasonPittsGame for being The Reel Deel’s first follower on Twitter! I hadn’t even promoted the site when I received the notification in my email, so imagine my greater surprise when I saw who it was. Talk [...]

I’m not repulsed (that was my reaction upon seeing¬† the costume for THE GREEN LANTERN), but I’m not impressed. Sure, there no overall [...]

The Reel Deel Review – THOR

Going into my favorite movie theater to check out Marvel Studios’ latest superhero film, THOR, I wasn’t sure what to expect (surely it wasn’t the rude box office employee who, when approached, dismissively pointed an index finger at another available co-worker – never bothering to quit yakking to his friend or even look at Shaundra [...]
