PEEPLES
Romantic Comedy

Plot:  Average guy wants to marry a pretty privilege daughter.

                Craig Robinson (Wade Walker) is in love with beautiful Grace Peeples (Kerry Washington) and wants to marry her and to do that he needs her father’s approval.  The father is Virgil Peeples (David Alan Grier).  It is the black version of Meet the Parents.  It is not as funny with all the stars in the film but it is not bad. 

The good stuff is they show black people upscale.  In movies they show blacks folks either super rich or super poor. A good father figure, a judge who works his way up.  The bad like I said not as funny with the cast such as S Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van Peebles and Diahann Carroll.  You know they have stereotypes and spoiler- happy ending.  It is a good entertainment if you are tired of superheroes.

FAST AND FURIOUS 6
Action/Thriller

Plot:  Agent Luke Hobbs needs Dominic and his team to take down and terrorist and save his girlfriend.

                Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) enlists Dominic (Vin Diesel) and his team to stop a terrorist and save his ex-girlfriend Letty (Michelle Rodriguez).  Plot is really not the strong point of this film but the action is!!  If you seen all the movies before this one you know what to expect, hot cars, hot girls and hot men tough as hell!!  Vin Diesel is not a great actor but he is so cool!!! This is a POPCORN movie !!  Also stay for the credits, a special guest shows up!!
  
STAR TREK:  INTO DARKNESS
SCI-FI/ACTION/ADVENTURE

Plot: The further adventures of the new Enterprise and its crew.

                This is a good movie but confusing too for you need to know classic Star Trek and the reboot Star Trek and they are trying to please both audiences.  The villain in the film is named John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) but that is not who he really is.  The actor is just creepy.  He does a good job as being bad and the rest of the cast is excellent.  If you are not a fan of the franchise it is good and if you are a fan you may object to some things.  It is worth a look.
