*When a love interest enters the new relationship with negative emotional baggage from the previous relationship, it’s doomed to failure. It seems a few cast members on season 3 of Ready To Love – Last Resort has the same issue. And they got exposed in episode 5.
Cast member Denise already expressed her reservations about cast member Rashid, because he reminds her of the narcissistic, light-skinned fraternity man she dated in a previous relationship. Despite Rashid’s assurances that he is not that type, Denise said she can’t let it go. So Rashid feels his character has been assassinated because Denise has prejudged him. The other male cast members have sided with Rashid, including Kalfani, who told the group he likes Denise, but her unwillingness to give Rashid the benefit of the doubt is rubbing everyone the wrong way.
Attorney Symone is giving off shallow and insecure vibes to other cast members because she was willing to portray another female cast member in a negative light to get attention. When Joy and Wynter confronted her about her behavior Symone cried and apologized. The Becky tears worked so well that Joy and Wynter also started to cry. So Symone was able to get away with her bad behavior, although she promised not to let it happen again.
It didn’t end so well for Shay and Alicia! Shay instigated the scandal between Alicia, Bryan and Alyx. Bryan and Alyx are a budding romantic item. Alicia stepped to Bryan to shoot her shot. He promised to come back to her room to watch a movie, but he went to visit Alyx and then retired to his room for the evening without returning to Alicia. She felt like the middle of a donut – left out. And she tried to turn Alyx against him by saying Bryan couldn’t be trusted to tell the truth.
Yet Bryan’s actions proved he can be trusted by Alyx. And that he wasn’t feeling Alicia. That’s why he didn’t go back to her room that night. Still, Alicia made a dramatic scene saying Bryan hurt her feelings. Although he should have canceled their pending movie night, Bryan proved that he didn’t want to lead her on when his heart is moving in the direction of Alyx.
In the meantime, Shay has caught the eye of nobody! She is trying too hard to be liked. If you have to force yourself on others to get noticed she’s fighting a losing battle. That’s why it was easy for the male cast members to send Shay home. And Alicia got the boot too for trying to play the victim and turning up on Bryan when she should have turned her attention to someone else.

EUR Reviews: ‘Mangrove’ a Must and ‘The Giant’ a Bust / WATCH
*“Mangrove,” is one of five films from the “Small Axe” anthology by Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”).
Based on true events, the film chronicles the 50th anniversary of the day in 1970 when 150 protesters of West Indian and African heritage in Notting Hill, West London, took to the streets because of police brutality. In a reign of racist terror, the local police raid Mangrove—a lively community base for locals, intellectuals and activists—time after time.
When nine men and women are wrongly arrested and charged with incitement to riot, a highly publicized trial ensues. his must see film follows the Nine and their road to justice. One of the Nine, Altheia Jones-LeCointe (Letitia Wright), is the leader of the British Black Panther Movement.
Ironically, Wright is the sister of T’Challa in Black Panther. During the highly publicized trial of the Mangrove Nine, tensions ran high as they fought against brutal treatment and discrimination.
“Mangrove” is not only timely, but universal in its depiction of bigotry and injustice throughout the universe. The raw emotions that spill out into the streets, and at times inside the Mangrove, are real. “Mangrove” hits its mark going for the jugular with in your face necessary narratives.
Co-written and directed by Steve McQueen, “Mangrove” also stars Malachi Kirby, Shaun Parkes, and Malachi Kirby, Rochenda Sandall, Jack Lowden, Sam Spruell, Gershwyn Eustache, Nathaniel Martello-White, Richie Campbell, Jumayn Hunter, and Gary Beadle. “Mangrove” is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Watching “The Giant” is like watching paint dry. At least with the paint drying, viewers are spared the doldrums of Charlotte’s (Odessa Young) sleepwalk-like trudge through “The Giant.” Minutes after the film begins, Charlotte mother’s quivering feet are seen because she has just committed suicide. This scene is tantamount to what audiences are in for; in addition to a serial killer storyline.
Charlotte is a 17-year-old spending the summer in her Georgia hometown before heading off to college. Her questionable first love Joe (Ben Schnetzer), who mysteriously disappeared also returns. And Charlotte’s best friend Olivia (Madelyn Cline) only adds to the dire state of affairs with her dark appearances.
The surreal scenes and dreamlike sequences set up to pique the imagination fail miserably because of the monotonous and maudlin tone of the movie. Charlotte’s belabored, psychological trek drains viewers to the point where they could care less about the conclusion.
Directed by David Raboy, “The Giant” also stars Jack Kilmer, Madelyn Cline, Danny Ramirez, and PJ Marshall. “The Giant” is available on Digital & On Demand.

Kevin Hart Defending His ‘Daughter is A Hoe’ Joke: ‘It’s A False Narrative’ / VIDEO
*As we previously reported, Kevin Hart released “Zero F***s Given” earlier this month, his latest standup show that was filmed during the pandemic in his own home! While many fans can’t get enough of it, others don’t seem to be enjoying his new work.
On top of receiving a few negative reviews from critics who called Hart “unfunny,” his show led to criticism due to a part in his set where he discusses his 15-year-old daughter’s love life. In the special, Hart joked that his daughter once told him, “‘Dad, I don’t like Rob no more.’ I like this boy named Tim.’ Instantly, in my mind, I said, ‘My daughter a hoe. This is hoe sh*t. Hoe activity right in front of my face.'”
Many condemned the comedian for his remarks, and now Hart is speaking out to defend himself against people who claimed he was demeaning his daughter but also attacking Black women in a conversation he had on a new app called “Clubhouse.”
“Alright guys, we gotta stop,” he said in a video posted to Instagram. “Stop with the false narrative. It’s a false narrative that’s being created and if you were in the Clubhouse and apart of the conversation, this wasn’t about Black women. It wasn’t about me going against Black… stop. A question was asked about the joke about my daughter and about me referencing my daughter having hoe-like activity. I gave an answer to it.”
