There's a conspiracy to block access to films of substance or films that might educate minority communities by movie executives and big business. These same people are also the reason why we only get certain types of films in our local theaters. While often times the people who hatch up these plots don't look like you or me or live where we live, the people who carry this injustice out do.
Having been so busy with work, on a recent Friday night I found myself with enough down time to catch up on a long list of movies that I wanted to see. Always one to try and keep the dollars in my community, where else would I look first but to Magic Johnson's theater.
At the top of my list was the independent film Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, a feature length documentary that reveals the effects of Wal-Mart on low income families and communities across the nation, followed by the PG rated Good Night and Good Luck, starring George Clooney as Fred Friendly. I also wanted to see North County starring Charlize Theron, which deals with America's most groundbreaking sexual harassment lawsuits and the newly released Jarhead, starring Academy Award Winner Jamie Foxx.
