50 Cent is not a fan of the Fox show and is a producer on rival series ‘Power’.
50 Cent is once again hitting out at Fox series ‘Empire’, accusing the show of suffering from a drop in ratings. But what 50 probably didn't count on was actress Taraji P Henson, who plays the feisty Cookie Lyon on the hit show, firing back at the rapper with some shade of her own.

Even from a young age, Katherine Johnson's family and teachers knew she was made for great things. Even as a child, her mind was something special. She was gifted with an ability to work out complicated math sums far superior to anything a young child ought to be able to do.
There were a number of factors standing between Katherine and her education - most spanning from the fact that she was black and it was the 1920's. The country of Virginia where she and her family lived would not supply an education over a eighth grade to anyone of Afro-American ancestry and few family worked impossibly hard, splitting their time over two counties, to make sure their little girl could become the success they knew she would be. Their hard work paid off and Katherine became a math teacher before being poached by a new and exciting agency looking to recruit some of the most talented mathematicians of the time.
Katherine, along with two fellow mathematicians, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, were introduced into a whole new use for maths. The ladies who worked in the department were human computers and they unravelled huge flight calculations and soon Katherine was once again headed up the ladder to work on a space mission - a mission to send a man to the moon and safely return back to earth.

The film has all the attitude of a standard Urban Professionals in Transition movie (think Brown Sugar or The Brothers) and is made with all the over-pronounced storytelling and shove-it-down-your-throat moralizing of a cinematic church tract. The title refers to the three-way bond between a husband, wife, and God, and the film is wrought with all the stereotypical signposts of a "We Need Jesus" story -- the couple with "no time for sex," who "can't pay the bills," and "aren't quite ready to have kids" discovers that their "marriage is on the rocks" and must work to save it, thereby solidifying their "spiritual bond." Yuck.

An intelligent director, Fincher cut his teeth on television commercials and music videos before making his feature debut in 1992 with a forgettable and regrettable installment in the Alien franchise. It was all uphill from there. Fincher's next five films arguably are modern classics, each impressively different from its immediate predecessor. Gen X fanboys idolize him for the basement-dwelling aggressions of Fight Club. The director brought flash -- and a needed backbone -- to pulp thrillers like The Game and Panic Room. And cineastes found plenty to appreciate in the meticulous musings of Fincher's cold-case police procedural, Zodiac.

Until recently, Howard has been one of American film's mostly unnoticed gems. A journeyman actor since the early '90s, he came into his own in Malcolm Lee's romantic comedy The Best Man, in which he served as the sleepy-eyed provocateur, wisely watching all the fools who surrounded him, goading them into fury by slyly undercutting their fantasies with his keenly observed truths. It was one of that year's great performances, but being mired in such a conventional work (not to mention being in a black film aimed at black audiences, and thus mostly invisible to the critical establishment), he never received his due. He's worked steadily since then, coming into his own with this year's Crash - turning in an open wound of a performance that stood out even in that film's excellent ensemble. In Hustle & Flow, he's found a role that puts him in the spotlight, and he grabs the role tight with both hands, though never so showily as to make you notice how hard he's really working.

At the heart of "Baby Boy" -- director John Singleton's return to his "Boyz 'N the Hood" roots -- is a character with whom it's extremely hard to sympathize.
Played by R&B hip-hop artist Tyrese Gibson, his name is Jody and the fact that he's only 20 years old is supposed to excuse him for being a selfish, shallow, disdainful, disloyal, disrespectful, lying, cheating, irresponsible hypocrite with a huge chip on his shoulder.
Singleton, who set this story in the same neighborhood as "Boyz," expects us to see "Baby Boy" as Jody's journey into manhood because toward the end of the film he has a tired cliché of an insincere quickie epiphany. He realizes maybe he should stop running around on one of the two girls who have already borne his children, start taking some responsibility, get a job and support his kids -- or at least one of them. Well, duh.
