Sparkle “E” Fall Movie 🎥 Reviews: A little something… something… for EVERYBODY‼️

At the verrrry beginning… this movie literally “pimp” slaps you in the face… when the main character’s child-like voice

proclaims…👉🏽

((I think you’ll understand my symbolism… ))

“P&$$y been in my face

all my life..”

—- Whoaaaa….. ——

and then…. “The first time I sold P&$$y…. I was 10 years old…

—— Yowza!!!!!——-

Yep! This chick was born into the Pimp Game… Her name is WEDNESDAY.

Her Daddy…

(“Midnight John”) was a pimp… and her Mama was one of his top girls. when she got pregnant with “Wednesday” 👉🏽That’s the main characters name),her Dad retired her… cause he didn’t want NOBODY else touching her…

Oooh!!!

Guess who plays her pimp daddy??? Rapper DMX… ya heardddd!!!!! -LOL!- 😅

He taught this kid ALL the hustling game… and she soaked it all up like a sponge… collecting money from John’s…while living in a whorehouse…(Daddy Pimp insisted on having all his “working girls” under his roof…)

Anyway…. Y’all remember when PIMPS back in the day… thought they were fly wearing this…

Uh huh… well in 2018… ya girl PIMP is swagged out like this:

Let me just say… KeKe Palmer went in HARD for this role! I mean… she worked out.. 💪🏽 buffed up.. and even shaved her head… This lady PIMP is tough as nails…

seriously “Bout dat life‼️

-&- “Bout dat money‼️

KeKe made the decision to play a lesbian pimp.. at the age of 19… She filmed the role at 23… and the movie was released November 9th… 2018 at her current age of 25!

Keke has taken on her share of the “sweetest” roles….like the Nickelodeon sitcom “True Jackson VP”

(This series made her one of the highest paid child actors on television.)

“Akeelah and the Bee” “Barbershop 💈 2: Back in Business” “Madea’s family reunion,” and “Scream Queens” —> and a Host of other TV show’s and films..

but This…”PIMP MOVIE …”

-THIS- is BRAND NEW…

A real game changer for this starlet…

KeKe got down HARD for this one… and went ALL IN… love scenes… fight scenes…. shooting scenes…murder scenes and all.. ((no hesitations. ))

I attended the packed movie premiere.. and met the producers…

Lee Daniels served as executive producer… and said as a gay man… It was important for him to put his name on this project.

He wanted to have

more stories like this one…shared with the world..

At the premiere… KeKe says she sat with her father…

While she admitted some parts made her flinch for him to see… She said he understands the craft of acting…and what is required to take on certain roles…

If you’re going to see this movie… I say warning! ⚠️ Warning! This is a real…hardcore flick! And believe me…they’re cutting no corners…

At the end of the day… KeKe says she never ever.. wanted to be type cast… or pigeon holed into just a few characters..

She said she wanted to make it clear… that KeKe can do ANYTHING!

And that’s the truth…

KeKe is something else in the role… A street bred badass…

( Y’all ain’t READY!!!)

This shining talent has proven herself over.. and over! She’s a highly versatile performer.. who can go from sweet to salty… or zero to 💯

lickity split!

I have to admit…I saw things in this movie… I have never known about.. or seen before…

But hey… that’s why it’s important to be exposed to all sorts of subject matter..

We go to movies 🎥 not only to be entertained & inspired.. but enlightened and educated as well…

Let’s just say… I learned a LOT! Hear me… and hear me one more time… This movie is a HARD rated “R”

Heyyyy Let’s use that “R” in “Re” turning to movie plot…

Ok…. so where was I ??

As she grows up.. female Pimp, “Wednesday,” (Keke Palmer), hustles hard for a chance at a better life….

she’s got her mama… and all her DRAMA… and it’s tough to make ends meet… pay for living expenses… make payrolls..with all these “issues….”

When her girlfriend, Nikki (Haley Ramm), hits the streets…. and renders her services… ( as a lady of the night… and day.), things are on the up & UP!

As Wednesday’s hustle improves…so does her stable of girls…. Did I tell you’ve Wednesday was a pimp with a heart of gold 💛⁉️

👉🏽True that… True dat👈🏽

She haaaard…. but she takes care of her crew..((00ps!)) 😩 I mean her street walkers…You know.. her girls…

Let’s run down all the folks in the film for a sec…

You got..

rough necks… (check) ✔️

Scantily clad women… working the streets in Bronx, NY.. ✔️

And a host of Sleazy & Shiesty characters … who lurke… in the dark… and always up to something in daylight…. ✔️

Here are a few more details about the other shady cast of characters…

Wednesday’s worn down…Drug addicted mother… is played to the HILT.. by( Aunjanue Ellis),

…and then there’s the gold capped teeth…cold blooded killer… who turns out to be Wednesday’s worst nightmare…street rival..PIMP…Kenny

(Edi Gathegi).

Now this is the one she calls “family..”

Her childhood friend and longtime love,

“Sweet Nikki”

(Haley Ramm),

Wednesday’s stable of “street workers”

include lazy… and/or impressionable young women…

But wait! 🖐🏽 There’s this pole dancing

“ho-stess” with the

most-est…( Destiny, played by Vanessa Morgan) who shakes her money-maker… and turns errrthang upside down… She’s one of the most attractive women in the game… and knows how to mesmerize… with her eyes… and errr-thang else she’s got.

She’s ghetto FABULOUS y’all… and wants to be the main course…

🎶🎶 La-La La La Laaaa… the boys are waiting!!!” 🎶

👉🏽 Y’all like my color commentary??? 😅😂🤣

Since this is a modern day Blaxploitation film.. 🎞 I’m just keep it REAL…

ya dig???

Orrrkayyyyy…. back to the flick…💥🎞

🎶La-la-la-la-Laaa!!!”🎶 Her (chocolate) MILK shake brings ALL the boys… (and a girl)… to the yard…

Another… mouthy 👄 quote you’ll hear from main character Wednesday—> says something to the effect of:

In the street game..you should always keep a certain distance… and never let a b$&tch get close to your heart…

Well….. Let’s just say… it was “heart ❤️part” jacked everything up… FOR REAL! Gotta see this.. to understand…

It’s hard out there for a PIMP… especially when a playa… gets PLAYED!

🖤🖤🖤 Boooyah! ❤️🖤🖤

A lesson learned in this case…. a little too late…

Cue Drake singing urban street song of the year: 🎶”Ke-Ke… do you love ❤️ me ??? 🎶

Snap your fingers… and hum the rest of the tune…

🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 Heyyyyy!!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

The day after the premiere… I went to the LIVE tapping of daytime talk show “The Talk” on CBS…where KeKe was a guest…

One of the first questions to her… was about the hit song of the year.. that happens to feature her name:

🎶 🎼” Ke-Ke do you love me???” 🎶 🎵

Keke was quick to say that this song gives her name LIFE!!!

👉🏽 And she’s ALL FOR IT!

She also said she’s working on a new TV series…

And releasing new music… 🎼🎶 including the single.. “Better to have loved…”

But for now… you can see #PIMPTheMovie is trending… and being shown in select theaters…

(check your local listings…)

Shake up your movie watching experience…

and “PIMP” right on over to select theaters to catch this one…

Betta be ready for it

tho…😮 KeKe is on fire!🔥

Ready for a dash of #RomCom magic ??? ✨✨

This romantic ❤️ comedy puts a new spin on classic film “Father of the Bride.”

It’s hilarious… yet heartwarming…with a strong emphasis on family.

This film opened Friday, October 26, 2018 to an enthusiastic crowd of hopeless romantics ❣️

LOVE JACKED stars Amber Stevens West, (The Carmichael Show) who plays Maya, a self-willed millennial with artistic ambitions, who refuses to let her strong willed dad Keith David (Greenleaf) say: I TOLD YOU SO! –when it comes to her love life.

Looking to find herself… and some inspiration for her art… Maya takes a solo journey to Africa…and meets a suave African man…Mtumbie, played by Demetrius Grosse, (Straight Outta Compton), Now this dude…who appears to be “Mr Wonderful” sweeps her off her feet… wines and dines her… takes her on romantic tours around Africa and -THEN- proposes MARRIAGE!!!! 💍

Whelp! Things come to a quick end… when Maya discovers Mtumbie in bed with another woman. (Ooops!!!) 😬 or should I say Ahhhh man… 😩 this dude had it going on!!! Just couldn’t keep it in his pants!👖 🙄

🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸

And now… for a public service announcement: Fellas…Don’t go chasing glitter… when you have a DIAMOND!!!! 💎

🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸

Now… back to my thoughts… After this heartbreaking 💔 cheating scandal … the romantic comedy takes off on a series of madcap

plans and adventures for Maya to SAVE FACE !!!”

Yep! This one gets REAL COMPLICATED… Hang on tight! just when you think things have stopped spinning out of control… This situation just keeps going… round and round…

I was totally invested in the characters. The chemistry is great! and there are so many picture perfect moments. The film was shot in Canada and South Africa.

The director… and co-Writer of the film…

Alfons Adetuyi, is Nigerian and said he was inspired to include some of his heritage into the story…by using Africa as a backdrop.Make plans to see it… and discover how it all ends…

Oh yeah… bring a tissue… your eyes 👀

-might- get a little misty in the end! There’s just something about BlackLove! 🖤

#LoveJackedSTARRING: Amber Stevens-West, Shamier Anderson, Keith David, Mike Epps, Demetrius Grosse, Lyriq Bent, Marla Gibbs, Angela Gibbs, and Nicole LynSparkle “E” was on the scene for a special screening… and celebration at United Talent Agency… with the All star cast on the pink carpet!

The lead actress of the film…Amber Stevens West just had a baby… and brought her to the screening… to join her co-star and the Director… at the UTA ( United Talent Agency Screening)

We transition from love 💕 sweet love… to a hard core HEIST!

Buck up! A “Black Widow” pushed into a corner… ain’t nothin’ to mess with…

BLACk WIDOW will raise the hairs on the back of your neck… with the tension..

This movie has so many twists..& turns! You’ll sit there watching… & go wait 🖐🏽 What⁉️

Of course VIOLA DAVIS is #phenomenal!!

“Widows” is based on a British miniseries about four women who plot and pull off a complex theft…

Davis plays Veronica, a cultured upper-class woman whose life is thrown into turmoil when her husband,

(Liam Neeson) is killed along with three colleagues pulling off an armed robbery. The money was presumably blown up along with the gang, leaving Veronica in debt to some very angry and very vicious gangsters, one of whom also happens to be running for office in the famously corrupt city of Chicago…

Tensions rise when these women take fate into their own hands..conspiring to forge a future on their own terms.

Though their lives are turned upside down… and they are shaken to the core… the “widows” prove to be smarter… braver… and stronger than they thought…

Great writing & direction from AcademyAward winner STEVE MCQUEEN.

McQueen is best known for the 2013 Oscar Best is Picture winner “12 Years a Slave,”

Twentieth Century Fox’s Widows starring Viola Davis… also includes:

Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, Liam Neeson and Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya

troubled onscreen lovers–played by Tomasz Kot and Joanna Kulig..

is extremely well-acted…

This…is one of the most BEAUTIFUL film’s this year!

And by the way….

Cold War was a huge success at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (where it was awarded the Best Director prize) and is generating major buzz… as a 2019 Oscar contender.

This black and white treasure is a musical romance… centered around two mismatched lovers caught between East and West in 1950s Europe… in post-WWII Poland.

Pianist Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) is commissioned by the Soviet state to form a musical ensemble to help rekindle national pride.

While touring the villages in search of talent he meets the much younger Zula (Joanna Kulig, in a luminous star-making turn), a fiery and charismatic singer with a past, and the two fall passionately in love…

I’m so proud of Joanna in this role… she is AMAZING!!!

Here’s more about the movie ….

When a performance in Berlin offers the couple an opportunity for escape to the West, a last-minute decision finds them stranded on either side of the Iron Curtain.

As the years march on, Wiktor and Zula – whether through political circumstance or personal challenges… the lovers struggle to find their moment in time…

Spanning 15 years across Warsaw, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris…

This film is inspired by the real-life story of the director’s own parents,

The cinematography is on point…and a terrific soundtrack pushes the passage of time and shifting relationships.

This epic saga follows the amazing love between young soul mates… trying to make it through tough times during the mid 70’s.

This is an incredible film! It’s been a minute since we’ve seen a love story like this one… that starts off so beautiful and pure. There are several key moments to unlock the hard parts of your heart… to allow love & pain to be released… all at once.

Based on the acclaimed novel by James Baldwin,

IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK is the story of Tish, a newly engaged Harlem woman who races against the clock to prove her lover’s innocence while pregnant with their first baby.

This is a unique and passionate love affair… that takes it’s time to unfold. We witness this young couple excited about a chance to live out the American dream.

We see how the relationship with their parents and other family members… plays out… when their once bright future turns dark…and cold.

You’ll cherish the moments reliving their glory days… and happy memories. You’ll also feel the heartbreaking 💔pain.. of their worse nightmares.

It took five years to get this masterpiece ready!

It was adapted for the screen and directed

by Barry Jenkins.

IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK stars KiKi Layne as “Tish” and Stephan James as “Fonny”, and a robust ensemble cast including Colman Domingo, Teyonah Parris, Michael Beach, Aunjanue Ellis, Finn Wittrock, Diego Luna, Dave Franco, Pedro Pascal, Ed Skrein, Emily Rios, Bryan Tyree Henry and Regina King.

☝🏽Don’t miss this one! It’s a moving… and very emotional story.. that will play over… and over in your mind for a long time….

***** LEAVE NO TRACE****

You don’t have to be a nature lover to appreciate this movie… just a curiosity about how much effort it really takes… to be invisible. Even if it comes down to making clicking sounds with your mouth… to communicate. It worked for people… living in the bush… and the duo featured in this production discovered it worked for them… without attracting too much attention… or disturbing nature.

This is a powerful… yet quiet film. There is very little dialogue… but the connection between humans… and nature is strong.

A father and daughter live a mysterious existence in Forest Park, a beautiful nature reserve near Portland, Oregon.

They rarely make contact with the world. Choosing to roam freely… despite various opportunities for them to plant themselves in established communities.

Eventually… a slip up tips them off to authorities… sending them on a journey… with no particular destination… just a place to call their own… where they will always have their thoughts…

The constant hitchhiking worried me… along with the child’s safety. I will give this spoiler alert.. 🚨 Thank goodness… no one is ever harmed or violated during these risky life choices… and the young girl never has to be naked… or turn slutty… because she is living a life without structure.

“Tom” –as she’s called is a smart girl! Her father raised a wise soul. Boys are drawn to her because she’s relatable and smart. I liked thieve details… and honestly believe it’s sends a MAJOR MESSAGE to teens… and tweens.

There is strength in being a decent human being. It makes you a giant of a person… capable of tackling suspicion from others… And one MORE thing…. innocence and a peaceful demeanor…can be a life saving quality… more so than anger… and aggression.

By the way… this movie is based on a real life situation.. and features authentic people who take on the roles they live out in everyday life… or capitalizes on their learned experiences… or expertise. This makes the movie feel like you’re really apart the journey. An “invisible” party… watching every move… and taking every step along the way.

The father obviously suffers from PTSD… after a bout in the military… and is a very restless soul. His daughter loves him so much… and is devoted to him… wandering places… when she longs to lead a normal life and simply stay put! In the end… she makes a decision… for the best.

I left this movie in deep thought… and with even more empathy for those who suffer from PTSD… Many of those living in woods… and on the streets of concrete jungles in cities everywhere face similar restless patterns… unwilling to accept available resources… permanently.

I say… see this film… have a better understanding of the saying: “Never judge another person until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes… or should I say…

“Hiking Boots.”

****** Suspiria *******

The new girl.. in this horrific tale…appears to be conservative… and a bit shy in the beginning….

A Young American dancer named Susie Bannion arrives in Berlin during the 70’s… to audition for the world-renowned Helena Markos Dance Co.

She’s a riveting performer… The powers that be… are inextricably drawn to her energy. Out of nowhere… she makes a giant leap to the role of lead dancer of the company.

The woman she replaces breaks down… and accuses the company’s female directors of witchcraft.

Hold up…🖐🏽 Can I just cut to the chase… and say this film gets really weird… really FAST…. ((( whew!!!)))

Dakota Johnson stars as the young American dancer…while Tilda Swinton co-stars in three roles, including as the company’s lead choreographer as well as an older male psychotherapist who investigates the dance company. Mia Goth and Chloe Grace Moretz have supporting roles as students of the academy, while Angela Winkler, Renee’ Soutendijk, Ingrid Caven, and Sylvie Testud portray the academy’s matrons… or should I just say COVEN OF WITCHES. Jessica Harper, the star of the original film, has a cameo role.

Got all that??? Ok… 👉🏽Back to the plot….

As strange things continue happening around the dance studio.. an inquisitive psychotherapist… and concerned member of the troupe uncover dark and sinister secrets.

They stumble into the studio’s hidden underground chambers…. and what they discover.. is horrendous!

This is an artsy horror flick… dealing with demons and the supernatural…

Curses and spells blend in with dance routines…

There are all sorts of Rituals… spells… and bone shattering situations!

I’m talking things that will get you distorted & tangled up in terror!!!

Dance is the center of it all….

This unique form of creative expression reaches a fever pitch… and turns

pure EVIL! 👿

Oh! the horrific images you will see…

Yep! Seeing is believing… and when things make it to that fever pitch… the leaders in charge insist there be a witness….

Things get Crazier… and CRAZIER‼️

I couldn’t help but “witness” with my own eyes… the disturbed looks on the faces of everybody in the audience… when the movie ended…

People just sat there… with shocked expressions… almost like they were under a spell….

👉🏽 Cue evil WITCH laugh…. 👹👺👹👺👹

🗣bru-hahahaa…eehehheee

Your SOUL will get dragged through the harshest conditions… Can ya handle a western this rough? Alrighty then… GET STRAPPED !!!

Saddle up partners….

Brace yourself for a rough ride through this UNFORGETTABLE western series…

Don’t blink… because every move is calculated…

There is NO MERCY! And it’s all for REVENGE…

Mass murder… and destruction by outlaws… to smoke out just ONE COWBOY…

Yep…..

Just ONE…..

I’ve always loved a good Western… but I ain’t NEVA seen nuthin’ like this….

It’s GOOD… because the scenarios are so BAD!!! And that’s downright UGLY….

I’m setting an edgier tone for this blog…right outta the gate…

I want you to rustle up the nerve to see this wild bunch for yourself! While I’m shooting it to ya straight here… Would you believe this saga also has a feminine touch…

Shaking my head… Rightttttttt…

A feminine western… with an interesting bunch of

“She-roes…”

Yes Sir… Yes Ma’am…

Gun-toting females… who don’t take NO CRAP!!!

Got your interest yet??? Alrighty… Let’s keep it going…

Lets rewind… and focus on the main VILLIAN…

Notorious criminal Frank Griffin…and his gang of outlaws are on a mission… — come HELL… or high water… they’re gonna get revenge on Roy Goode…

Who’s Roy Goode you ask… Welp… I’m glad you asked…

Roy Goode is a former protege.. who betrayed a well known gang of rough riders… He was found… and raised up by Frank Griffin himself…

-THEN- this happened… and that happened… and well it just didn’t end well…

Roy had to cut… and RUN!!! He tries to disappear in the isolated mining town La Belle, N.M.,

He seeks refuge on a ranch… just outside of town..with Alice Fletcher, a hardened widower and outcast.

Here’s the tea ☕️ on this role…

“Alice” is portrayed by Michelle Dockery…

you know her.. as the privileged and snobby “Lady Mary Crawley” from Downton Abbey!!!!”

She’s just as pretty…as a frontier woman…(but in a more organic way)… and she’s much much edgier… NO TOUGH!!!

This is a western frontier woman who has gone through some brutal things FOR REAL… She’s been widowed TWICE…

stay tuned to this Netflix streaming production…to learn her backstory! Bravo to Michelle Dockery for an incredible transformation from a high classed socialite… ..

…to the Queen of frontier –gunslinging women!!!

Ahhh shoot!

I believe someone even referred to the elusive woman as a western “Witch!!!”

–Ooooh Weee!!!!!–

By the way… Michelle went to an intense “cowboy camp” in Santa Fe New Mexico… (where the series was filmed… )

The training prepared her for this role… teaching

her how to shoot guns… #pow! 💥

and ride horses….

Yeeee haaaaaa!!!!

( Giddy Up!!!) 🐎

It was all worth it.. because Michelle has been nominated for a 2018 PRIME time EMMY… for outstanding Lead Actress In a Limited Series or Movie…

Michelle Dockery has been a favorite actress of mine for some time….

Everybody knows I am a BIG FAN of Downton Abbey…my enthusiasm carries over to watching Michelle bring “Alice” to life…

She’s most definitely earned even more respect from me for her versatile acting chops.

I was absolutely thrilled to meet Michelle Dockery!!! She has a wonderful presence… and a very sweet spirit….

One more piece of info… about Dockery’s character on the “Godless” series…

“Alice” lives in seclusion on her ranch… with her Native American mother in law…

and young son named “Truckie”…

Alice is one to shoot first… and ask questions later.. She shot intruder, Jack O’Connell’s character..Roy Goode, when he appears on her property in the middle of the night…

It took some time for peace & trust to be achieved … but in the end… he earned his keep… and a safe place off the beaten path to LAY LOW…

Important detail:

The western town near Alice’s place is called La Belle…

it’s a shabby…sort of ghost town…run by women!

Only a few elderly.. or broken men are left… There are children.. and a few young fellas…

All the men… the husbands.. and fathers of the WOMEN of LaBelle… died on the same day..in a mining accident…on the land…

Strong willed… and determined to carry on… these ladies pull themselves up by their 👢 boot straps… and carry on…

A few have completely ditched their dresses… to get suited and booted in their husbands old clothes…

Now these women have had to deal with a few shady characters… but there’s always a greater force… waiting in the cut to help them through challenges… JUST IN THE NIICK OF TIME!!!!

That being said….nothing was more disturbing… than the news of Frank Griffin and his wild bunch coming to town… mad as HELL!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Uhhhh huh! They were getting more agitated & aggressive by the mile….

Whenever you hear that galloping… and see a dirt cloud rising… that’s BIG TROUBLE!!!!!

How can one lonely cowboy fuel so much hatred??? Perhaps because he was faster… and smarter!

It’s a shame… so many had to pay the ultimate sacrifice because of that HATE…..

whew! It’s BAD y’all… real bad….

I don’t think Western fans have seen the likes of a villain like Frank Griffin…

This role is masterfully played by Jeff Daniels….

After watching a few episodes… the hair will stand up on your neck… every time he appears… What is this demon gonna do know… you’ll wonder…

#sucks teeth… and rolls eyes…. 👀 #SOB‼️

Daniels -shocking- portrayal of one of the worst villains in the history of westerns.. has earned him an EMMY nomination for outstanding-supporting-actor-limited-series-or-movie

When this dude rides up… on a horse…He has a straight face… and calm demeanor… He even wears a preacher’s collar.

-smirk-

snort……

SIGH…. 💀

This man folks….. AIN’T

–NOTHING– but the DEVIL!!!!! 👹

He’s pure EVIL… ☠️

He has NO SOUL… No morals… no regards for humanity…

This FOOL is Satan’s son… and *** GODLESS……….***

Hence the title of the show…

how in the world… does he get ALL these strange characters to follow his lead… and carry out his terror filled missions…

-SMH-

Like I said… I ain’t NEVA seen nothing like this…and YOU will get tied up in all the DRAMA too… just keep watching… The intensity increases as you learn more about the characters… and ride along on this stressful journey…

As the clock ticks on…

Word gets to town…that Griffin is headed for LaBelle…. He knows his declared Enemy is hiding around there..

An unfortunate situation leaves the women unable to run for the hills… and so the ladies of LaBelle have NO choice.. but to buck up.. and defend themselves against Griffin and his murderous gang…

I watched every moment of this Netflix original in pure AMAZEMENT!!!

The ultimate GUN FIGHT… is the SHOW DOWN of the century!!!!

Make sure you watch every single episode… because this finale is brutal to the final shot…….

Godless has received 12 nominations for the 2018 prime time EMMYS!!!!

Side note: note 📝

NETFLIX leads ALL the networks… with a gran total of 112 nominations… for prime time Emmy Awards.. with it’s popular streaming shows!!!

Each nomination is hard earned… and well deserved by all the cast and crew..

The reviews for “Godless” have been strong. The show scored an 89% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 76 rating on Metacritic..

It’s a gritty… exciting… and a very well-acted Western…

This good ole fashioned saga… covers everything from epic gun battles… to war heroes..and African American BUFFALO soldiers… to beautiful Western landscapes… amazing wildlife … and fierce fighting females…

Michelle Dockery says “Every disturbing and violent moment in Godless….had to be very carefully choreographed.”

Steven Soderbergh-produced this period drama…

while the mini-series created, written and directed by Scott Frank..

After an awkward start…Marlo soon learns to appreciate all that Tully does — forming a special bond with her new, lifesaving friend…

She’s just too good to be true! She’s like a hip… and trendy…yet…wholesome –granola type version of “Mary Poppins!”

Yeahhhhh….. Tully’s a “FREE SPIRIT!!!” –earthy & cool… you feel like she takes a spoon 🥄 full of 🍯 honey… instead of sugar… to make the medicine go down…

Tully is wise… so calming and kind… This has GOT to be too good to be true… right?! Hmmm….. what is REALLY the deal here??? You’ll have to see the film…. to have your “ah-ha” moment… when you figure it all out…

You know… Charlize is a precious jewel… to make this film really ✨✨ S H I N E ✨✨ not only is she a producer… but a WONDERFUL actor!!! She’s actually one of my personal favorites!!! “🙌🏽” She is an Phenomenal Actor!!!! She transforms herself so much… that you can ONLY see the character she takes on… The beautiful starlet completely fades into her role…

While we’re on the subject of BEAUTIFUL… Charlize knocks it OUT THE PARK on the red carpet!!!! I mean… EVERYTHING she wears in absolutely G O R G E O U S‼️

she ALWAYS makes my BEST DRESSED LIST!!!! And Let’s not forget about those mesmerizing “JADORE” commercials!!!!

Just when you thought you’ve seen Charlize at her best… with all her other popular…and award winning films…another eye-opening cinematic wonder… like this one comes along…

While guest starring on #WWHL Watch what happens live.. with Andy Cohen… “Tully” was recently singled out… in a survey… as Theron’s 2nd BEST performance… in a leading role… after her Academy award winning performance in monster.

Charlize won an Oscar for her role and intense transformation in the 2003 drama “Monster,” and with this film… she made another amazing transformation… for this “Mom” role…

Theron gained close to 60 pounds for this role… The same amount of weight… that several women have actually gained during pregnancy. 🤰

Charlize has gone on record.. saying: “I just I wanted to feel what this woman felt, and I think that was a way for me to get closer to her and get into that mindset. ”

While “keeping it real..” she also fell into a depression during this ordeal… while it took 3 months or so for her to gain the weight… It took a LOT longer to loose it all.

The process… was indeed a “very long” physical journey… but Charlize dug deep…to reflect on the BIG SCREEN the raw… and gritty hardships of parenting.

Yep! I got the message:

***THE STRUGGLE is R E A L !!!! ***

This film is a big slice… of American life! The “take-a-way” for parents…can be summed up… with something else Theron said: “It’s important for mothers to tell their husbands and co-parents how they’re feeling….

She went on to say that parenting is HARD… and no one really has it easy. It’s stressful at times… and can be messy.

Consistent Support is crucial to keep it all together….

Reviews on two Winners 🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🙌🏾🙌🏻 in Diversity Casting: Disney’s “A Wrinkle in time” -and- Netflix Streaming hit “Santa Clarita Diet”

A Wrinkle in Time directed by Ava DuVernay… is an adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic fantasy novel—

L’Engle’s 1962 book is about a teenager named Meg Murry (Storm Reid)

This courageous young lady…(Meg)…travels through time and space to find her missing scientist father (Chris Pine).

Along the way, she is guided by an ancient trio:

Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling).

Mrs Whatsit (Reese) is an animated…and lively source… who gathers up the trio… and takes the lead to find Meg’s scientist father… who mysteriously disappeared…

Mrs Who… (Mindy) is wise with words… while she rarely finds her own… she uses quotes… to communicate

Oprah Winfrey is “Mrs. Which”

This character is a supernatural…one of the wisest souls in the world….She is often the light… and rarely shows the world her human form… but in this movie… every time she appears… she’s FABULOUS!!!!

Bedazzled eyebrows… silver lipstick… and all…

Personally… I have ALWAYS had a thing for fantasy… feel good films… every since I was a little girl… with bright eyes gazing into the television… 📺 when these kind of movies were broadcast on Saturday’s #Yipeee!!!!!! 👧🏽

Fast forward to 2018…I had been looking forward to seeing this one… for quite sometime… and I enjoyed it! 😃

Fantasy Films spark ⚡️ wonderful activity in your brain! They’re creative… and truly make you feel like you’re on a magical journey…

That’s what Entertainment is all about! An escape to a different time and place… with amazing new characters for you to learn! Challenging scenarios force you to use more of your imagination….

Get your mind right! This is one of those movies that can surely test your thought process… and make you wonder…….. gee… What an interesting interpretation of GOOD & EVIL… they’ve cooked up. That’s a puzzling situation to challenge anyone’s mind…

while this film is mostly targeted for children… Everyone will get the intended message!

Just my own food for thought……

interesting………… 🤔

In this coming of age… mystical journey… we watch an introverted… young girl… who has had to deal with a lot of misfortune in her life… blossom into a beautiful… bright and refreshed new soul! 🌼🌸🌺🌼🌸

She gets her confidence back… and saves the Day!!!! I love to see the under dog make a comeback! I especially love it… when a lot of people can see these images on screen… it’s like putting a soothing balm on hurting souls… I think it helps with healing people too…

I LOVE leaving a movie feeling BETTER than when I came…

#Motivated!

#Educated!

#Inspired!

#Uplifted!

I felt Storm Reid did a fine job portraying Meg! I was delighted to see her take on modern day issues… and worries/ concerns as the teenaged heroine…

Young Meg was so brilliant & smart… and it was finally hit home… with herself… and all the universe!

Oprah, Reese and Mindy happen to be 3 of my favorite TV/ Film personalities…

I’m certain I’ve watched just about everything they’ve done!

(Scouts Honor! 🧤)

These three ladies…are some of my personal favorite stars!!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Seeing them team up on this project… and become true real-life… friends has been amazing…

What a win-win all around!!!👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 #Yay ‼️

I was extremely THRILLED 😁 see a ~DIVERSIFIED~ cast on another big budget fantasy

#Times..TheyAreAChanging!

#Hallelooooo!!!!! “🙌🏽

((( ok… I was jumping up and down in my seat… giving myself “high 🖐🏽fives…)))slap… 👋🏽slap…

👋🏽😆

Ohhh how sweet it was..

—-> watching the cast… doin’ it up —NICE—…. #DisneyStyle ‼️

There are amazing costumes…make-up & hair…beautiful scenery…

( O-M-G New Zealand is A-maxing!!!! Those lush… and rich landscapes were breathtaking!!!

The set designs..and vivid scenes in this film…are fun to watch…

I suggest seeing it in real

3-D to get the most out of this colorful experience…

With all the big budget bells… whistles… and special effects…

This movie definitely has a very powerful message for young girls… well…

Actually for everyone…

Director Ava DuVernay has said she wantsed to send a  message that would make everyone feel worthy…

She simply says: “You are enough!”

DuVernay is the first black woman director to work with a $100 million dollar budget on a film.

She..and “Black Panther” director, Ryan Coogler, have become the first two black directors to hold the top two spots at the box office… at the same time!!!

Another FINE moment…in History folks! 👊🏽

Oh! I definitely have to mention that both these directors are leading the way with diversity all around!

There are greater hires for talent on screen… and behind the scenes…

More women in production… and people of all ages in other roles with these Productions… I was happy to see the images of these people at work! I honestly believe there’s still more room for new people…

I’m just Keeping the Faith!!!

Newsflash: Ava DuVernay is set to direct her second film…

After making history as the first woman of color to direct a $100 million-plus live-action film in “A Wrinkle In Time…”

Wooo!!!! 🙌🏽 DuVernay has just closed a deal with Warner Brothers…and DC to direct ANOTHER big-budget screen film!!!

This “NEW” project will be the adaptation of superhero series…

***** “The New Gods”*****

-THIS- is a comic book series created by legendary designer Jack Kirby…co-creator of Captain America, X-Men and other iconic heroes.

The saga focuses on the denizens of two planets: New Genesis and Apokolips.

Highfather rules the former in relative harmony, whereas Darkseid lords over its dystopian neighbor….

Talk about mythology and science fiction… This will TRULY be a creative fantasy challenge!!!

The New God’s” is part of a “Fourth World Saga,” a series of four interconnected comic book series…

Did I also mention this will be another 100 + million dollar project…. #Wowza!!!

Get ready! Get ready! Get ready people…Super hero films are going to keep soaring high at the movie box office!!! I hear rush orders are being placed on several follow up films….

#StayTuned! Swwwwwooooshhhh!!!!!

What can I saw about…Santa Clarita Diet… without weighing in too much… before you can dig into to this…for yourself.

It’s extremely humorous and clever!!!!😁 -LOL!- 😜

Are you feeling greedy for more??? Ok… here’s some power packed protein to nourish your need for INFO….

insert: wicked laugh…

It’s…. A modern day… cosmopolitan spin of the ZOMBIE GENRE!!!!

-LOLzzz!!!🤪

We’re taking some cray-cray Zom-vie shenanigans…

He-Heeeeeeeee!!!!!

I recently attended the season 2 premier at the Arclight Cinemas… in Hollywood ⭐️…and the massive audience… devoured this show!!!

They.ate. it up!!! 😁

You hear me???

-Howling!!!- 😂🤪😆

By the way… Netflix executives said this show has become a HUGE global hit… in its second season!

When they watched it…the Netflix team said they -knew- they had something special… and the world 🌎 has now confirmed it!

Drew Barrymore & Timothy Olyiphant are wonderful acting together… They’re also executive producers on this project…

Within the first few minutes of watching… I spotted so much diversity in the cast…. my eyes kept getting wider… and wider…

Yep! The real world is definitely reflected up in here! It made me feel so excited… even before… all the really weird shenanigans kicked off…

Got that???? Alrighty then….sink your teeth into a little more:

Drew Barrymore (Sheila Hammond) and Timothy Olyphant (Joel Hammond) … star in this Netflix-original series as married realtors, who start off…living a quiet life, raising their teenage daughter in Santa Clarita, California… not far away from LA…

Their “normal suburban existence” suddenly changes when Sheila goes through a dramatic transformation that sends her down a road of death and destruction —

I’!! say this again:  “New Spin” on Zombie folklore…. Let’s add in..more guts… & #Gore *** suburbia style! ****

Sheila & Joel are so cute!

They are absolutely believable as a couple who truly love each other… and are just trying to make it work…

despite…

sigh…… ALL THIS DEEP DARK…DRAMA… that’s killer….

He-Hee…. Ha-HaHa!!!

screaming with laughter….. seriously KILLER!!!! ☠️

sure… this is a horror-comedy series…but the love story sends a great message… in the midst of laughter..

It’s about LOVE for BETTER or WORSE!

When things KEEP getting worse… and worse the man stays committed to his woman.

Joel & Sheila have been together since High School….

He’s fully there! As a

Help mate. Lover. Provider. protector.

and “Ride or DIE partner!

When things go BAD… He DOES.NOT.RUN!!!!

Nope… he’s committed to keeping his family together!

Shout out to Joel & Sheila for showing us through a show… what Ride or Die REALLY means!!!

The couples “wise beyond her years”–teenage daughter… is named Abby Hammond…

She’s played by actress Liv Hewson

Her best friend… and their next door neighbor is Eric Bemis …. played by Skyler Gisondo

Abby is well aware of her mother’s “situation” is trying to help keep Sheila’s secret while continuing to lead a regular life as a high school student.

Once again…. I am absolutely THRILLED to see a very diversified cast of people of all ages…. and races…from different cultures…. and walks of life… that honestly REFLECT THE REAL WORLD!!!!! 🌎

✊🏼✊🏽✊🏻✊✊🏿✊🏻

This makes for an even more intriguing horror action comedy!!!

people from all walks of life can be funny! This mixed approach to the reactions to the weird things that are happening is hilarious!!!

Everybody can relate to what’s happening here….

🗣Yeee-Hawwww!!!!

👍🏽👍🏻👍🏼👍🏿👍👍🏻👍🏻👍🏽

When it gets down to this kind twisted fate… it’s love… crazy love…that’s deep…. #RealDeep to keep things together….

I’ve gotta let you know…there’s a lot going on with these folks…. whew!

Needless to say… The family and neighborhood is so interesting to watch…

recurring characters include: Ricardo Chavira as Dan Palmer, Mary Elizabeth Ellis as Lisa Palmer, Richard T. Jones as Rick, Joy Osmanski as Alondra, and Natalie Morales as Anne Garcia.: Ricardo Chavira as Dan Palmer, Mary Elizabeth Ellis as Lisa Palmer, Richard T. Jones as Rick, Joy Osmanski as Alondra, and Natalie Morales as Anne Garcia.

Once I started… I just couldn’t stop! 🛑

I’m BINGE watching the rest of the season…on NETFLIX….

This quirky comedy is a definite HIT!!!

Sheila’s alarming… but amusing lifestyle “change”… leaves her looking and feeling better than ever!!!

A dark comedy… with GREAT WRITING…dealing with murder and mayhem… like… like…. I don’t think you’ve ever seen before…

If there is EVER… a time for me to type in the “ Makes you go hmmmmm…. response…. It definitely fits here…… Hmmmmm……

You’ll be thinking… could this…????? What if….????

*** Hmmmm….🤔⁉️⁉️***

Barrymore and Olyphant also serve as executive producers, alongside showrunner and creator Victor Fresco ….

Yeah!!! Two thumbs way up on this odd… and very amusing show!!! 👍🏽👍🏽

A dark comedy…. that will surely light up your life with yikes…. 😖 and laughter… 🤣😂😅

This is another great win for inclusion!!! I was so happy to see all these cast members working!!!

Hang in There inclusion riders!!! There are Productions out there willing to give NEW people a chance!

I saw a lot of fresh faces of ALL ages… that really lifted my spirits… Especially after submitting for so many projects myself… and still standing on the sidelines CHEERING for those who are now… actively APART of the game!

Recently… more dialogue opened up about securing opportunities to work…behind the scenes for people of color…

Keep hope alive folks! Keep networking alive! people who were talking the talk… are NOW making their actions LOUDER than their words!!! They are starting to open more doors 🚪 for people! #YesSSSs!!!!!!!

Platforms like Netflix, Hulu Amazon Prime, OWN, Lifetime, Hallmark, HBO, Bravo, VH1, showtime, STARS, BET, TBS, TNT

are hiring more diverse executives, directors, writers, and producers…

It’s a trickle down effect… Each one… can reach one! and bring them into the fold… You never know…. The person YOU HELP… may end up helping to SAVE you… or hire you… when you need a Job!

There’s room for new ideas… styles… and creative approaches…

Don’t let go of your faith yet!!!

I’m clinging to HOPE!!!

I’ve put myself out there!

I don’t keep my head down too long… I’m busy LOOKING UP!!!

I’m doing the work…putting myself in position…

Just out here doing everything I can do… going everywhere I can…meeting everybody I can..

Oh I’ve been ready! I stay ready… so I don’t have to get ready!!!

I’m PATIENTLY waiting for ALL THE STARS TO ALIGN …..

🌟✨🌟✨🌟✨🌟✨🌟✨🌟

I want my turn too!!!

Like most folks… I’ve spent a grip on training… with every performance CLASS… and workshop known to Hollywood man…. (and wo-man)

In conversation folks always start with the comments…

“It’s a numbers game…”

Wow! They say… you’ve been out here for quite some time…

Yep… yep… I nod my head…

and then comes… “Well you’re older now… so you’re really going to have to have some inside connections… ”

and then…..they rub your arm and go…” Ohhh-a….

shaking my -next- the old sympathy pat…

With sound effect..

included…

Thanks for that.  I know the intentions are good…

I’m down with all GOOD VIBES coming my way.

While I am still without an agent… or manager… I do the best I can… to promote myself… and my business Sparkle”E” Entertainment & Promotions….

I know I have much to offer… I have years of ALL KINDS OF EXPERIENCE.

I’ve crossed trained… and polished myself in ALL areas… so that when the opportunity for WORK presents itself…. 🙋🏽‍♀️I’M READY!!!!

Are you getting ready.. and putting yourself in position to LIVE out your DREAMS… and LIVE your BEST LIFE???

Get ready… get ready!!! Change keeps COMING!

So start now acting “AS IF” AS if… everything you want to happen WILL!!!

Until then… let’s speak POSITIVE WORDS into existence… Alright?! I’ll write them too… #WriteOn! #RightOn!

“Maynard” the Movie…. empowers and celebrates strong 💪🏽 Leadership…in the most BRILLIANT Way!

Let me see now….

Where should I start….🤔

Oh yes…. I know… I’ll just cut to the chase…. and make it plain….

*** “You HAVE to GO… and See…****

✨✨✨MAYNARD!!!! ✨✨

You MUST GO…and you CAN find a way to see this film…. 🎬🎥

To my native ATLANTANS….. I will accept NO EXCUSE‼️

The life and legacy… of Maynard Holbrook Jackson

has had a SIGNIFICANT impact on my beloved ❤️ hometown of

ATLANTA, GEORGIA….🍑🥜🏅🌃🌠

Before… I share a few details about this GREAT historical film…

I have to set the foundation of this blog by saying ***ATLANTA*** is unique from any other progressive major city… because while it is a busy metropolitan area… with numerous businesses….Respected Colleges and Universities… (HBCU’s) Historic Landmarks…Churches…Outstanding Schools… education programs…(at every level), Recreational spots… world famous restaurants… entertainment venues… Television & Motion picture studios… One of the LARGEST National… and International airports… also named in honor of the man…

**** Hartsfield-Jackson airport****

But wait…. there’s more…. Atlanta has spectacular Sports teams…Home base of famous artists/entertainers… athletes… I’m talking BRIGHT ⭐️ stars…(and a lot of other important folks), Popular Television Shows, Upscale neighborhoods… entertainment hot spots…and so much more!

With this said… those of us FROM “Atlanta” never forget one thing:

It’s all established in THE SOUTH!!!

A “NEW” kind of south…tho…but southern to it’s core…

Traditions…core values…. come from a proud and RICH heritage…

It’s a NEW DAY!!!! and my beloved city of Atlanta… has gone through A LOT of growing pains…

It’s the cradle of the civil rights movement… It’s a legacy forever influenced by DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JUNIOR….

….. and MAYNARD HOLBROOK JACKSON JR ‼️‼️

As for the MODERN DAY ATLANTA…. Jackson’s imprint… will FOREVER BE….

ALL……OVER…..THIS GREAT…CITY!!!!

Maynard H. Jackson Jr. known as a “Lion of a man!” (1938-2003)

…..and in case you have no clue…..if you just heard a “little” bit about this divine leader…

(but don’t know much) -or- if you’ve been living under a rock…. get up…google this film…find out where it’s showing next… make a plan… (claps hand 👏🏽) and GO see this movie…. and everything make sense!!!

Go to: maynardmovie.com for screenings… and updates on the project.

This production features interviews with those who knew him Best! You’ll hear intimate DETAILS about this great man… his pedigree …. and how he came to be ALL THAT HE WAS…how he changed the course of HISTORY!

Mayor Jackson polished up Atlanta…. he brought a LOT of shine to the city…

And you know what??? Atlanta is ***NOW*** the ✨brightest✨ jewel… in the entire southern crown…👑

Maynard Holbrook Jackson Jr. was an attorney…member of the Democratic Party… and elected in 1973 (the age of 35), as the first African-American mayor of Atlanta, Georgia…( My hometown!), and of any major city in the South.

I watched “Maynard” the movie… at it’s Los Angeles..premiere… at #PAFF @paffnow

The Pan African-American Film Festival…

I was filled with great emotion… after watching the film… and felt tremendous pride! I REMEMBERED all the major highlights!

-THIS- man achieved GREATNESS in my lifetime… and I remembered💭 it ALL… The GREAT moments….. and all the unfortunate ones too….

This portion of history lasted from my early childhood… through my high school and college years… and into adulthood…

As a history buff…. I’ve watch tons of documentaries and historic films… but that feeling you get… when these events happened during your LIFETIME… and you can mouth dialogue from key moments… along with folks who said the words……. #PRICELESS!!!

A rush of happiness went through me… watching MAYNARD JACKSON again… He was an articulate handsome… and distinguished gentleman… making his mark in politics!

As a child…. I remember how IMPRESSIVE he was…. His knowledge and wisdom was incredible! He spoke with such ease… and confidence! A powerful speaker… who gave insightful interviews to the press…

This man made a HUGE impression on EVERYONE he met…. He was a true statesman… GENUINE to his core… a very thoughtful and kind person… but don’t get it twisted… He…

did not play! 👊🏽

He truly loved people…. ❤️ and it was so obvious in everything he said… and did..

My heart was filled with so much JOY… and pride knowing that this GREAT LEADER… was from my neighborhood! 🏠 🏡

He lived just a few streets over…. and the BIGGEST smile 😃 would always cover my face…. when we happened to drive by… and Maynard was in his yard… or even getting the mail!

I remember my Dad’s spirit would just light up too…he’d toot the horn… “beep! beep!” We’d wave…👋🏽

Maynard… always sharp & alert… would flash that brilliant smile… and give us a hearty wave back!!!

I was so excited! I remember when Maynard first ran for Mayor…marching around our yard… holding that red & gold “Maynard for Mayor” campaign sign! My face lit up… when I saw it on screen… and this memory came rushing back… 😄

Anyone who happened to drive by… would honk at me… and I would excitedly jump up and down… and wave wildly… shaking the sign up and down shouting “Maynard for Mayor!!!!!” -LOL!!- 😆

**** TRUE STORY!!! 👍🏽*****

I was just a kid…. 👧🏽 but doggone it! Maynard Jackson INSPIRED me!!!

I always listened to my parents speak so highly about him.

I watched him… intently on TV news…. 📺 to his interviews and speeches on WAOK radio.. 📻

We talked about him at West Manor Elementary School….We held mock elections… ((( He always WON… of course! 😉)))

I always noticed the headlines… on the Atlanta Journal and Consitution…. and while I always had to see the comics section…. I was motivated to read all about HIM!!!

I remember the political cartoons… his facial expressions when he was making a point…. I’ll never forget what a fine statesman he was…. his voice was so distinct!

It was clear… and confident… He had a booming impressive voice… that would reverberate in your spirit! I’ll always remember that voice… and to hear it again… in clips during the film… just warmed my heart all over again!

I was filled with emotion… watching every frame of this production…

I shared my excitement too!

Memories…. oh the memories that came rushing back to my soul…

I’m so proud of EVERYONE who made this film possible!!! Especially Maynard’s children…Buzzy..(Maynard Jackson III) and his wife… Wendy Eley Jackson… and his daughter…Executive producer Brooke Jackson Edmond)

Brooke & Buzzy were so impressive… opening up to share their personal thoughts and feelings in this piece…was just great.

I was just so proud of it all ‼️…👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 This Film is Great! I gave it a “10” on the festival scoring sheet… (Geez…That… was a no brainer!)

Maynard Producers, ( Maynard lll & Jason Orr) and Executive Director of the Pan African Film Festival…. Ayuko Babu

I’d been following the development of this project from it’s earliest stages… It turn out to be a three (3) year Labor of Love.. ❤️

…..well worth every second!

Maynard Jackson lll ( Buzzy…a nick-name we’ve called him from childhood), says he woke up out of his sleep… compelled to make a documentary about his Father…

He spoke about his vision to his wife Wendy… a veteran producer in the entertainment industry… of more than 25 years… she shared his enthusiasm…

and the rest is history!!!!

A GREAT account of history… that I’m telling you again… YOU MUST SEE!!!!

I can just envision … that brilliant smile of Maynard’s SHINING✨down from heaven about this project! I told Buzzy… “ I know your Dad is SO PROUD of you!!!”

All the producers will tell you… Maynard’s spirit was definitely involved in this project! They say Maynard would be apart of their meetings!!!

They claim lights would FLASH… while they were planning segents… and discussing certain elements of the film… They’d all just say… “ That’s Maynard!! —He’s Here!” His spirit was most definitely present…

I also have to mention that I was so happy to see the parents of a lot of my hometown friends… and political icons I’ve admired and respected… included in this production.

Maynard Jackson was one of the most DEVOTED public servants I have ever known…. without him….

There would have not been a Barack Obama!!!! These words were spoken out loud at the movie premiere…. and I was like….. you know what?????

*****That’s RIGHT!!!!✊🏽****

His positive image…leadership….and political work record MOST DEFINITELY paved the way!!!! 👊🏽

There are so MANY treasured accounts of Maynard Jackson’s life in this film!

Oh! I also wanted to mention His son…(Buzzy), Maynard Jackson lll, (an incredible musician & drummer) along with another childhood friend… Phil Davis.. arranged the music for this production… #JustAwesome! BoneCrusher is also featured as well..

During Q & A after the screening…Someone asked the question… I was thinking to myself…how did they manage to whittle down Maynard’s incredible life…to fit an hour and a half on screen….???

“It was tough” … said producers… and there is still a LOT of GREAT content leftover… for even more compelling projects! Perhaps… in the future???? Hmmmm…. 🤔 More historic accounts of people… and events from the great city of Atlanta???

I hope so….

After the whirlwind of excitement… and all the accolades… and Awards come from this project….I expect more GREAT things will come… from Atlanta’s Auburn Avenue Films!!!!

I’ll be excited about it… and will support all they do… I hope you will too…. 😉

I challenge you… to round up your families… churches… friends… clubs and organizations… HBCU students, Grads, student groups, Sororities & Fraternities…to pack out the theaters!!! ( Google it! Get the dates and times on Twitter & Instagram too)

As I walked home from the LA screening… after watching “Maynard” the movie… I had a little more PEP in my step! The resilience that ALL Atlantans are born and bred to have… got a much needed BOOST within ME…

Heavens knows…. I’ve had a extremely hard couple of months… weeks in fact.

I’ve been mourning the loss of a LOT of dear friends/ mentors….one after another… and I was feeling devastated!

I’ve been fighting to keep my business up… and running… trying to figure out the next career moves to make…battling the flu… financial burdens…

Sigh….An extremely busy schedule…with places to go… and people to meet! ( A sista is out here in these LA streets trying to make things happen!!!) The good lord knows!!!! 🙌🏽

That being said…I was DETERMINED to see this film…on it’s LA debut!

I rearranged my schedule…canceled some things… and I was THERE!

I hope you’ll make it too… and expose this to as many young people as possible!

Children… and teenagers need to share this experience… and have follow up discussions….so they will never forget!

Black History MUST be preserved!!!! We have TOO many contributions and accomplishments that the WORLD 🌎 needs to know about it…

As a native ATLANTAN….. “WE” are raised to KNOW our history‼️

We were told stories… and started telling them ourselves… as soon as we could gather the knowledge…and form the words!

We were taken to the king marches… services…tributes..and those of other great civil rights icons!

We got involved with political campaigns… and other community concerns EARLY!!!

We learned about Black History in our schools… our parents taught us EVERYTHING at home…. our extended families… neighbors friends… civic and social organizations taught us even MORE!!! We made pilgrimages to historic sites…and landmarks!

We were educated -constantly- in our churches…. great leaders lived among us in Atlanta… you’d see them out and about…

There were just so many teachable moments around us… 24-7…

Atlanta natives are special! To this very day… we all feel the responsibility to serve our communities in some way!

To teach… to inspire… and share our history with others….

More memories rushed into my mind…as a TV news reporter… attending NAABJ ( National Association of Black Journalists) Conventions….

I worked my way across the country as a Broadcast journalist… and attended conventions from various places where I was assigned … I always felt privileged to catch up with other black journalists from

“The Mecca” Atlanta…Ga!

The news talent I grew up watching cover Maynard…over the years…inspired ME to become a broadcaster & Journalist!

(And yes! You will see quite a few of those outstanding Atlanta journalists in action in the Maynard Film!!) 👍🏽

At the convention one time…. I remembered hearing someone whisper in a group of people when I walked by… “yeah… she’s from Atlanta!!!” I smiled to myself… and said… and you know this…. Can you tell??!!!

Do you have any clue about how proud I am of my city… and the great people who come from it?!!

I am… who I am…. The resilient spirit 🔥 that I have…. has a lot to do because of the honor! The power! The activism! And the Courage DEMONSTRATED to me… by a man… I will always admire and respect… ✨Maynard Holbrook Jackson Jr. ✨

May the symbolic “Torch” … with ALL the BRIGHTEST & BEST elements of his life and legacy be passed on… to help future generations… be empowered… and SHINE ON!!!!

Eerie accounts of The Winchester Mystery….will HAUNT you… on the BIG SCREEN…

Pssst!!! Whispering….

This Movie…🎥 is inspired…by true events…. 😲

On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco… in San Jose California… is the most haunted house in the world.

The mansion stands seven stories tall…(((wow!!!)) 😯…and was built by Sarah Winchester, (Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren), heiress to the Winchester fortune.

This massive house was ALWAYS under construction!!! 🔨🚧

***Piece this together in your mind….😬*****

Crews worked twenty-four hours a day…seven days a week for DECADES.

The house contains 161 (40 bedrooms),closets.. pantries… hallways and windows…

There are also lots of staircases…that lead to no..where…😧doors that open on to bare plaster..

There are 17 chimneys, more than 10,000 window panes…. (There are exquisite panels of Tiffany glass)… a LOT of other unique things…

This monster house will you STOP 🛑 in your tracks…

You’ll stare…in disbelief…

It’s like a massive monument created by a disturbed woman’s madness….-or-…. was her aggressive building campaign… a wise move for protection???Hmmmm…..🤔

Sarah Winchester bought what started out… as an eight-room farmstead in 1884 and turned it into this…

Sarah Winchester was a riffle heiress. A woman of great wealth…and unusual tastes who picked up…and moved across the country to San Jose California…

Three years earlier, she lost her husband…William Winchester….owner of Connecticut rifle firm…the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. It was his bequeathed fortune ($20.5 million, or $530 million/ £376 million 💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰(adjusted for 2018) which would fund her 38-year construction frenzy at the house.

🖐🏽 Wait now!

In this movie… you’ll discover that Mrs. Winchester is not building for herself…her niece (Sarah Snook) or for the brilliant Doctor Eric Price (Jason Clarke)… who has been summoned to the house.

It turns out… that Mrs. Winchester is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts. (Gasp! 😵🤭)

According to the word around town…. she was being tormented, it was said, by the ghosts of every man and woman who had died at the end of a Winchester weapon….

Always in mourning for these souls…and her late husband and daughter… Sarah Winchester always wore black…

The most terrifying ghost of all… is a powerful..(and very scary soul…) who violently haunted the family… was fiercely determined to settle a score with the Winchesters…. by any wicked way possible!

*******O-M-G!!! *******

You just…gotta see!!! 👀

At the movie premiere…Helen Mirren and Jason Clark… found seats among guests wearing black veils…

Every guest… was given a Black Veil to wear..while watching the movie…

There was also a medium… famous for communicating with spirits…at the movie opening…

He shared intimate details with guests about loved ones… who have passed on… along with messages they wanted to send…

The Spierig Brothers… who were the masterminds of this project… also greeted guests…

…..and so did the stars of the film… the Divine Academy Award winning actress Helen Mirren… and the charming Jason Clarke

Here’s the scoop on some Movies 🎥 you CAN’T AFFORD to MISS!!!

Let’s cut to the nitty gritty…

Mary J’s character (Florence Jackson ) in “MUDBOUND” rolls up in this wagon with her family… (husband, kids)—

and Mr. “Man” from the rival family asks for a favor…(a BIG favor).. and that LOOK… the expression she had on her face… when “Mr Man” formed his lips to demand… –ahhh– “request” what he did…has stayed with me… for quite some time….

Raising eyebrows…. Mannnnnn Mary! We were sucked into that moment…. feeling some kinda way!

** Umph!!!** If looks could KILL…..((even with shades on….))

👉🏽that look Mary “J’s” character gave this man….. he would have been poof… 💭💥 pow… BEEN GONE Honey!!!!This pivotal moment in the film… represents the core of the tremendous pain…. suffered by these folks.Director Dee Rees, ( Director of Emmy Award winning “Bessie” and “Mudbound” has gone through great lengths to make sure you feel all the pain… This woman put her heart & soul into this film…Rees also recognizes the importance of working with other women on Productions. She said: “I want to be a woman who is giving other women jobs and trying to change things. 👉🏽 So peep this! Rees embraced a team of women in the production of MUDBOUND, including cinematographer Rachel Morrison, (hopefully the first woman DP to be nominated for an Oscar), editor Mako Kamitsuna; composer Tamar-Kali; music editor Nancy Allen; and department heads that include make-up, costume and wardrobe, and post production. #Yay!!!! 🙌🏽 Rees also went over and beyond the call of duty to do extensive research on the time period … She made sure her cast members bonded, and had a realistic understanding of their characters… and the relationships they shared.

If you aren’t touched by this movie… in some sort of way…… you.don’t.have.a.heart. ❤️

I M

ho
actors breathed LIFE into every single character. Great job ensemble cast of MUDBOUND BRAVO!!!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

***Piece of advice*** pay close attention to details… actions… and every little thing that happens in the beginning…

(Don’t blink) It will all tie in together… and make sense later.

Mudbound is an epic drama..of two families…(one black… & one white)…set in the Deep South..after WWII…

Buck up! There are several tense moments in this film. Social hierarchy challenges…Jim Crow segregation…hardcore racism……and everyday hardships…

( deep woods/country style).

👉🏽 Challenging situations…that will make you wonder how.in.the.world 🌎people made it through so much!!!

Yeah…. this is why Great Grandma, MeMaw, PopPop, Unc-Unc… and “nem” were so strong!

These people from the past were hard core… and so secretive over the years…after coming up in these kind of environments… experiencing things you just couldn’t believe.

Yep… it makes sense now…

I.get.it‼️ 👉🏽 I have even MORE respect for our elders… and ancestors after seeing films like this… feeling ~grateful~ the good Lord helped them make it through…..

Life is hard for both the white… and the black families featured in this movie.

Unexpected things pop up… left & right…but the brutality of racist attitudes…and attacks… takes it’s toll on the family of African-American sharecroppers.

These were hardworking… good Christian folks… who just couldn’t seem to catch a break!

Well…….actually…..something does break… and break again… making things even worse! 😥

You: what could she possibly mean???

Me: You just have to see it… to get what I mean.

With determination & great faith…We see how Christian “believers” support each other–throughtough times.

The film… based on a book by American author Hilliary Jordan…clearly demonstrates how God will make a way… out of no way! 🙏🏽

Battles are fought at home and abroad….and the aftermath for soldiers returning home from the war is grim..

Through it all.. this film is about friendship, heritage and the unending struggle against the land… and harsh weather conditions.

Newly transplanted from a quiet life in Memphis, the McAllan family is underprepared and overly hopeful for Henry’s (Jason Clarke) big farming dreams. Laura (Carey Mulligan) struggles to keep the faith in her husband’s losing venture… while trying to create and maintain a civilized environment for her family…

****meanwhile, *****
for Hap (Rob Morgan) and Fl
a dream of their own … in the midst of heartbreak… after heartbreak.

The war upends both families’ plans as their returning loved ones, Jamie (Garrett Hedlund) and Ronsel (Jason Mitchell) forge a fast, uneasy friendship that challenges them… to the bitter end…

Jason Mitchell… (You know him… he played the part of “Eazy-E” in “Straight outta Compton…” —

anyway… his character…is MaryJ’s characters ..oldest son). This brotha is going through a second Hell.. after coming home from the first one during the war..His character, (Ronsel), experiences some gut wretching situations… and serious abuse that will not get into….but I will share this:

  • 👉🏽During a recent conversation…Jason Mitchellkkk says tensions were THICK.. making these scenarios look reals…

It took an emotional toll on everyone involved..including those working behind the scenes..Jason says he was ALL IN and sacrificed everything he had…to make sure scenes were done RIGHT… to accurately tell this story… and reflect what was needed to evoke emotion… and reflect a hardcore truth… of situations that have actually happened in history…

Mitchell told his cast members not to hold back either…and woooo… they didn’t…

This is a superb drama! The performances will leave you speechless. 🤔 Think: films sounder…meets tv show the Walton’s… meets the color purple… roots… with a dash of “miss Jane pitman” taken up several notches…

SEE IT…. to BELIEVE IT!👍🏽 **This is a must see** already generating it’s share of
it’s share of OSCAR BUZzzzzz!!!

/2017/11/img_4601.jpg” height=”146″ class=”wp-image-165″ width=”220″> ress.com/2017/11/img_47801.jpg” height=”900″ class=”wp-image-155″ width=”1800″>

Long sigh……. 😔

By the time… I picked myself off the floor… and shook my head.. to remove the heavy FOG that cluttered my thoughts💭I was emotionally SPENT!!!*
**Woooo-saaa!!!!**😬😳😩😫😵

You’ll get it. You’ll watch in ~disbelief~ how helpless people of color… had to keep their cool… when things got HOT! 🔥

Tempers….Egos….RacialTensions…. Frustrations… SCORTCHING HOT‼️

🔥🔥🔥🔥

It’s something else to see exactly how difficult situations got started… and escalated recklessly

OUT OF CONTROL!

This is a TRUE story…

and I never knew about this one either…The film “Detroit” is based on the Algiers Motel incident during Detroit’s 1967 12th Street Riot. The film’s release commemorated the 50th anniversary of this unfortunate event…

During a recent panel discussion… cast members said watching this film…

( and discussing certain scenarios), was going to be a ~required~ part of training… for some police officers across the country…

There are quite a few teachable moments.. and clear examples of what NOT to do… while exploring options on how situations can be handled before they’re blown out of proportion!

I always say: Movies… are created to entertain…uplift… inspire… enlighten… but in this case **EDUCATE** you… for sure…

It makes you think 💭 how things have changed… but in some cases… stayed eerily the same…

For history’s sake… go see this one… Watching this drama unfold… will make you all the wiser…

Director Kathryn Bigelow keeps the pressure cooker going…and going…enticing you… to NOT look away… or you’ll miss some important detail.

“Detroit” stars John Boyega, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jason Mitchell, John Krasinski and Anthony Mackie.*** Warning: *** Brace yourself… this is HOT 🔥 and HEAVY! Its filled with tension… and may be a bit stressful to the soul…

**** “The Beguiled”****Sooo… this is supposed to be one of those…. ***Fluttering my fingers… in a “V” formation ” 👐🏽

Pouring in my slo’ southern drawl… 👉🏽 one of those sweet… delicate.. lil’ southern belle moving pictures eh?

“Nay… not so replied the angel 👼🏻 on the ..pastel wall paper…in the mural of my mind…(chuckle, chuckle!😅)

Let’s just say… soft spokened “Titanium” ( not steel).. magnolias star in this one…

For errrbody who thought all those delicate little women in hoop skirts ( back-in-the-day) were useless… and helpless…

sugar dumpling…you gone learn it ain’t always… that-a-way!

Even though this film starts off… modest and quiet…((
utching your pearls (tight!) a few times!!!Th ullinan’
l The “Beguiled” (also known as “A Painted Devil”), is a thriller..
a wounded Union soldier taken into a southern girls’ academy during the US civil war.

***Briskly fanning myself… Nicole Kidman is featured in more of her “finest hours…” She is captivating to watch…

The amazing Kierstan Dundst… Elle Fanning and the ~sweetest~ supporting cast of young ladies

Ev-va!!!! #OhMy! 😱
