Jungle Cruise Review 'SUMMER ADVENTURE of the year'

ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI in select theaters December 25th & on Prime Video January 15th, 2021

On one incredible night in 1964, four icons of sports, music, and activism gathered to celebrate one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. When underdog Cassius Clay, soon to be called Muhammad Ali, ( Eli Goree ), defeats heavy weight champion Sonny Liston at the Miami Convention Hall, Clay memorialized the event with three of his friends: Malcolm X ( Kingsley Ben-Adir ), Sam Cooke ( Leslie Odom Jr. ) and Jim Brown ( Aldis Hodge ).   Based on the award-winning play of the same name, and directed by Regina King, One Night In Miami... is a fictional account inspired by the historic night these four formidable figures spent together. It looks at the struggles these men faced and the vital role they each played in the civil rights movement and cultural upheaval of the 1960s. More than 40 years later, their conversations on racial injustice, religion, and personal responsibility still resonate   Discuss this with fellow SJF fans on Facebook .

While crowds of people swarm Miami Beach to celebrate the match, Clay - unable to stay on the island because of Jim Crow-era segregation laws - instead spends the night at the Hampton House Motel in one of Miami's historically black neighborhoods celebrating with three of his closest friends: activist

Movie Review: 'Race'

The Jesse Owens biopic is way too-on-the-nose and entirely too long. Review by Matt Cummings From the moment that the Jesse Owens biopic/social message Race begins, it's clear where this one will go: racism is bad, so are Nazis, but here's a guy who will build bridges on his way to making history. And that's largely how it's played out, with such a lack of enthusiasm that it's not hard to imagine what it could have been with a bit more push. The fastest man on Earth Jesse Owens (Stephan James) is also one of its least appreciated. As 1930's America struggles with blatant racism, Owens and others are forced to suppress their talents while their families barely eek out an existence. Luckily, his enormous talent - speed - has brought him to Ohio State University and track coach Larry Snyder (Jason Sudeikis), who sees nearly unlimited potential in Owens. As his star begins to rise, the 1936 US Olympic Committee and its members Avery Brundage (Jeremy
