Review: With an interesting set of colors and a pleasing structure, this design has just a bit much blank space and it also looks a bit too blocky and predictable.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: This pseudo-biopic has a lot going for it, but the trailer does a poor job presenting that to the audience in such a way as to elicit their excitement.

Oscar Prospects:

The film hasn’t had a lot of success so far, but is well regarded enough that it has several prospects, even if they are weak ones. The film’s best chance will come in Costume Design, but stars Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes are both distant possibilities.
