Film Review : Terminator Genisys

"In my humble opinion this is the third best film in the series, but falls short behind the James Cameron efforts."

By now you have probably either seen Terminator Genisys or have heard several mixed opions on the film. So we will say that Terminator Genisys is the best Terminator movie that isn’t directed by James Cameron.

Considering the immense gulf between the first two movies in the franchise and then T3 and Salvation.

The Terminator and T2: Judgment Day were the perfect cinematic one-two punch, although the  second film  took eight years to land in theaters. The raw power of the original was followed by a more special effects driven film fused with awesome action sequences and eye-popping visual effects.

You can say that the fact that T3 & Salvation never came close to matching the achievements of T2 and the original are a testimony to just how far it was ahead of its time (and Cameron’s storytelling prowess).

What Genisys gets right, is rewriting the series’ timeline so that the third and fourth movies never happened.

Which is a polite way of saying that it ignores those two weak entries completely. Unfortunately, it also ignores the once engaging TV show The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Genisys’ recasting of key roles also works. Ultimately Genisys ends up undoing its own efforts to rewrite the saga with too many familiar frame for frame action sequences, really copying verbatim from the original two films. But all in all Genisys is one wild ride !

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped.
