Enter to win The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks on Bluray!



Mind on Movies is very excited to announce that we are working with HBO Home Entertainment on the upcoming Bluray release of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
An African-American woman becomes the unwitting pioneer for multiple medical developments, such as the Polio vaccine, when her cells are harvested to create the first immortal human cell line. Her story, previously lost in history, is brought to life in HBO® Films’ The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Led by Oscar® nominee and TV icon Oprah Winfrey and Emmy® nominee Rose Byrne, the “Intriguing and thought provoking” (The New York Times) HBO® Film, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, is available to own on Blu-RayTM and DVD September 5, 2017.

​​In this adaptation of Rebecca Skloot’s critically acclaimed, bestselling nonfiction book of the same name, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is told through the eyes of Henrietta Lacks’ daughter, Deborah Lacks (Winfrey). The film chronicles her search, along with journalist Rebecca Skloot (Byrne), to learn about the mother she never knew and understand how the unauthorized harvesting of Lacks’ cancerous cells in 1951 led to unprecedented medical breakthroughs, changing countless lives and the face of medicine forever. With a supporting cast that includes Renée Elise Goldsberry, Reg E. Cathey, Courtney B. Vance, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Leslie Uggams, Reed Birney, Rocky Carroll and John Douglas Thompson, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a story of medical arrogance and triumph, race, poverty, and deep friendship between the unlikeliest of people.

The A-list, ensemble cast includes Tony Award-winner Renée Elise Goldsberry, Reg E. Cathey from HBO's The Wire and Oz, and Emmy® winner Courtney B. Vance. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is directed by George C. Wolfe, and executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Alan Ball, the creator, writer, and executive producer of the HBO hit series, True Blood and Six Feet Under.

Step - Review




R: August 18th, 2017 | R: 83 minutes | R: PG

Step is a documentary that follows an all girls step team as some of the members move into their senior of high school at the Baltimore School for Girls. Since they are the first graduating class for the school they are faced with the balancing act of winning step competitions, reaching adulthood and the goal of 100% college attendance for the entire class.

This documentary is a heartfelt one as the girls deal with the hardships of living in the inner city and trying to help the school reach the goal of the first graduating class attending college as well as actually placing in a step competition since they had never done that before even though the team was founded during their 6th grade year.

The documentary focuses on three main stories: Blessin - the outspoken founder of the step team who has a hard time staying focused on school, Cori - an intelligent, shy student who is determined to attend John Hopkins, and Tayla - a student who falls in the shadows of her overly enthusiastic mom.

Their personalities mixed with the other girls of the team as well as the step coach made me laugh, cry and cheer with them as their journeys unfolded. Some of the girls were so cheerful and hopeful despite not having food to eat or lights on at home during some portions of the documentary. I soon became invested to see how everything would fold out and if they would reach their individual goals and goals for the step team.

I don't want to give away too much of their story because it was so beautifully put together and felt very real as some of them broke down on camera. It is truly a documentary that has a feeling of realness to it and I could not help but be glued to the screen during the entirety of the documentary feeling their emotions along the way.

The Hitman's Bodyguard - Review




R: August 18th, 2017 | R: 118 minutes | R: R

Hitman's Bodyguard stars Samuel L. Jackson as Darius Kincaid, a hitman who is offered a deal to pardon his wife, if, he testifies against the president (Gary Oldman) of an Eastern European who has been committing crimes against his own people.

Ryan Reynolds plays Micheal Bryce, a bodyguard who is recruited by his ex-girlfriend (and Interpol officer) to make sure Darius Kincaid arrives at the court house alive and able to testify.

Darius and Micheal are reluctant to travel together Because they already know each other and don't have a good relationship. Throughout the movie they banter back and forth and Samuel L. Jackson says mother f**** too many times to count. There's a lot of action and high speed chases.

This movie is a buddy film, lots of laughs and ridiculous scenes that are hilarious. If you enjoy these kinds of comedies I think you'll like this one, I liked it and I left the theater smiling.

Logan Lucky - Review




R: August 18th, 2017 | R: 119 minutes | R: PG-13

Steven Soderbergh is back. He's finally returned to form from his early retirement and he's bringing the big guns. With a stellar cast that includes a has-been turned single dad Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum), his one-armed bartender brother Clyde (Adam Driver), his quick-witted sister Mellie (Riley Keough), and short-tempered prison inmate Joe Bang (Daniel Craig), LOGAN LUCKY is an explosive feast of hilariousness and cleverness combined.

Rebbeca Blunt, the film's sole writer, pays dues to influences like the Coen Brothers, playing with absurdly comical moments and smart quips that keep LOGAN LUCKY at an unpredictable pace. Soderbergh, the director/cinematographer/editor, paces this film just like he did with his very own Ocean's Trilogy, leaving clues and hidden layers in a seemingly simple plan that takes more doing than thinking to execute. It's an enjoyable structure willing to keep you on your toes to appreciate its detailed narrative.

Despite some minor plot holes and miscues from Soderbergh, this film begins and ends with its cast (and countless cameos), who all do a terrific job at playing charmingly ordinary characters with a Southern side to them. It's important to note that at no point does it feel like Soderbergh and Blunt give them a twang that might be offensive to a certain audience. Prison inmate Joe Bang, for example, often feels like the only person who knows what he's actually doing thanks to his invaluable knowledge of improvised science. This is the work of brilliant actors who display more talent than the accent and setting let on.

LOGAN LUCKY isn't just funny and smart; it's Soderbergh's delightful, star-studded, sweet, and comprehensive latest project that hopefully starts another great run of films. We missed him.
