The Story of Marcus Graham
On this episode of UNGENTRIFIED, I am joined by journalist, pop culture connoisseur and entertainment critic Kay-B (@ladykayb21), to talk about one of the greatest films of all time, Eddie Murphy’s Boomerang.
We take a trip back to 1992 to dig into why the film was called deemed a failure when it came out, discuss why white critics felt a story about black successful people in New York was “unreal,” whether the movie deserves the “classic” title the black community gives it, the groundbreaking soundtrack, and who we’d cast in a reboot (even though neither of us wants a reboot). Listen and give us your opinion!
