Tell Me Who I Am

Imagine waking up and not knowing who you are. Luckily you remember your twin brother who helps you put back together the pieces. But what if he left things out to “protect” you. One is trying to remember and the other is trying to forget. How would you feel?

This documentary is so good and how they tell the story, really pulls you in. It helps you connect with the brothers as you understand both their sides of the story. I’m not crazy for docs’, but Tell Me Who I Am is definitely “Relatable”.

Dolemite Is My Name

Eddie Murphy is another one of those guys, for me, that can do no wrong. From stand up to movies he’s been excellent. Dolemite Is My Name is one of his best performances yet. He’s funny, sincere, genuine, and with a star studded cast, this based on a true story tale is nothing short of 2 thumbs way up. 4 flames on the 🔥 scale. The movie is good from start to finish and worth doing the extra research to see how influential Rudy Ray Moore truly was. Netflix does it again, this movie is definitely “Relatable”.

The Righteous Gemstones

When I first saw Danny McBride, I thought he was a one trick pony. A guy who was really good at playing himself and didn’t have much range. But after following his career and one brilliant show/movie after another, he’s the real deal. And it’s no wonder why The Righteous Gemstones is a hit. The show was created, produced and and stars Mr. McBride, and follows a prominent televangelist family through their trials and tribulations. This show is nonstop laughter and definitely “Relatable”.

Gemini Man

As a Will Smith fan, I expected Gemini Man to be good, but it was even better than that. The storyline seemed new and hard to predict, while also presenting interesting moral questions that made you connect with the characters. The visual effects are amazing, and the fight scenes literally had me on the edge of my seat. I can’t describe it, without feeling like I’m giving too much away, but it’s perfect for the times and worth the egregious price to see it in theaters. Gemini Man gets my vote, and is definitely “Relatable”.

Top Boy

Top Boy is like if The Wire took place in London. It follows a group of friends that are clawing their way to become Top Boy on the block. The writing is incredible, along with the acting and soundtrack. Every episode is a story within itself that builds suspense, develops characters, and builds to the next. And maybe because I’m American, but something about their accents and slang make everything more interesting. Top Boy is “Relatable”, innit?!

The Boys

The Boys is an Amazon Original show about the darker lives of superheroes. The show goes past the life saving and social posturing into the day to day lives of some elite heroes and how they effect normal people’s lives. Superheroes don’t always use their powers for good and The Boys is about what happens when they don’t. Whether you’re into comic books or just like peeling back the curtains, The Boys is definitely “Relatable”.
