Out now on Digital, the 2019 hit film QUEEN AND SLIM will be released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, & DVD March 3 and MMT is giving away a Blu-ray combo pack!
Now when I viewed the film last year, there were parts that I found to be wonderful – the beautiful images displayed of African-Americans on the big screen, the dope soundtrack, the beginning of the underlying message. However, I was pretty disappointed with how the film ended and the final message the audience was left – leading me to conclude the following,
“Waithe wrote a story in which the leads were forced to self-reflect – Queen being described as an atheist and Slim highly spiritual – while challenging each other’s core views and ultimately find love in the midst of life or death circumstances.
But the weight of the police brutality topic, and the current reality of watching the news or viral videos of so many Black people dying at the hands of police, made it difficult for me to accept some parts and fully digest it as a love story.”
In the end, I gave the film 3 out of 5 beats on the MMTrometer, but I truly wish I could have rated it higher.
