A- Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson This film is one of the boldest in breaking away from overused tropes viewers have come to expect from action and comic book films alike.

A Taylor Swift: Miss Americana (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson This isn't a surface-level film about fame, riches, and petty dramas. It would be easy to dismiss Taylor Swift as a shallow pop sensation with no influence on politics, but that assessment would be wrong. EDIT

Posted Oct 4, 2019
A The Day Shall Come (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson The jokes land well, while simultaneously showcasing that corruption of the government, and of those in power, is no laughing matter. EDIT

Captain Marvel (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson Captain Marvel unapologetically ejects the centralizing of the straight white male narrative, without sacrificing good storytelling. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2019

Posted Oct 24, 2018
22 July (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson 22 July is a bleak film, but one that focuses on the people involved, and their journey after the atrocity of right wing extremism, rather than exploiting the violence of that day. EDIT
Posted Oct 19, 2018
Feminists: What Were They Thinking? (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson The movie serves more as a glimpse into second wave feminism, as opposed to a thorough look, but it is needed all the same. Although, it lacks true inclusion in some areas. EDIT
Posted Oct 17, 2018
Soul Food Junkies (2012) Chauncey K. Robinson It is a documentary that deserves a look at not only for how well done it is, but also the larger question it raises of how, even food, is not only personal, but political. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Chauncey K. Robinson Most appealing about the film is that at its heart is a young woman attempting to find her place in the world, while falling in love with a man who is obsessed with class rank. EDIT
