    Superfly rolls back the clock on African-American movie heroes
    This review contains spoilers. S uperfly appears to be superflopping. Released last Wednesday on 2,220 screens nationwide, the Columbia Pictures remake of the 1972 blaxploitation favorite has grossed only $10.7 million to date, a dismal figure for such a wide opening.

  • Original films should be left just as that, original. I'm old school when it comes to movies, when they do remakes some just don't compare.

  • Gil Jimenez Private Investigator; IL concealed carry trainer

    I am very put-off by the fact that the TV and movie industries keep remaking OLD shows/movies.

    Are there no more original ideas anymore? Apparently not many.

    Upgrade is so derivative, it's original
    Leigh Whannell's low-budget horror feature Upgrade, now playing in general release, reminds me of the goofy genre mash-ups made by Brian De Palma in the 1960s and '70s (Hi, Mom! , Phantom of the Paradise ) and Takashi Miike in the 1990s and the aughts (Fudoh: The New Generation , The Happiness of the Katakuris ).

Found Labrador Retriever

A good citizen found and is holding onto a Labrador Retriever on 59th/Pulaski (Dollar Store.)
We tried calling animal control but had no luck. We don't have a day to wait for them to come pick up this baby.. She is a very sweet girl and we can tell that she comes from a very loving home. Perhaps, she just got out the yard.
I have a pitbull and the other good samaritan has a pitbull as well and unfortunately,...

A good citizen found and is holding onto a Labrador Retriever on 59th/Pulaski (Dollar Store.)
We tried calling animal control but had no luck. We don't have a day to wait for them to come pick up this baby.. She is a very sweet girl and we can tell that she comes from a very loving home. Perhaps, she just got out the yard.
I have a pitbull and the other good samaritan has a pitbull as well and unfortunately, we are both unable to take this sweet baby home because we don't know how our dogs will react to another dog coming into our home. If this is not your dog but could foster this baby until we find her mom and dad.. It would be greatly appreciated. This good samaritan has this baby on a leash on 59/Pulaski.

  • E_Spencer hello

    The store clerk said he was going to keep her for awhile and see if someone claims her.

  • Pulaski Animal Hospital is at 54th Pulaski / 55th.Please see that this dog gets a chip scan there...
