Family

Paul Walker Tribute


I did not get into the whole Fast and Furious series until the 4th movie and I fell in love with the cast…. Indeed am I praying for his family as well in regards to his death over the weekend ( last week ) –  He died in a car crash and burned to death….

He played roles of a car drag racer and he died in a fast car….speed was the factor – we just NEVER KNOW when we will see our loved ones… We get up and leave our houses everyday THINKING that we will see our wives, husbands, kids etc AGAIN….in a few hours etc…. but this is prime example of how short life is –

He was about to go to his own charity and never made it –

Movie Overdose – LOL


The Best Man Holiday movie

I have already seen this many WAY too many times that I would like to actually admit ….. ESPECIALLY since it only came out last week on Thursday….but to me it was indeed just that good…… Okay here is my theory with this movie..

Movie was INSANELY good – they need to have at least 2 more at the least then CLOSE THE STORY. Ride the wave while it is high…make Part 3 RIGHT NOW while the momentum is high and we are all watering at the mouth! (summer 2014)  Then make the 4th one with everyone READY for the story to end but do it with a big bang! ( 2016 )

Inspiration

Do I Love Noah or Russell?? LOL


Funny title huh! Well, of course I love Noah and I surely love handsome Russell Crowe too! He is such a great actor – and his foreign ways are a bit interesting just as much! ……..LOL

I am SHOCKED that Hollywood has even produced a movie about “The Bible” first of all – Then I am shocked that they convinced Russell Crowe to accept the part..I mean not saying that he is not a religious man or anything but what BIG TIME Hollywood actors do you know have done any CHRISTIAN BASED roles?

The first thing that I thought of was how during Easter of this year, there was a blockbuster movie about The Bible and the life of Jesus Christ on The History Channel and it made tons of great reviews, ratings and money! So I guess that being CHRISTIAN is the new “it thing” for Hollywood to make money….I do not know for sure if that is the case but it is an EASY thing to speculate –  Welp, I pray that God penetrates not only Russell Crowe’s spirit but everyone who is connected to this movie – I am sure that this movie will be a huge money maker – More so I pray that people’s lives will be changed too.

Relationships

This Was Soo Good –


Okay – it is no secret that I am NOT a huge “urban film” movie goer …unless it is a love story –  However, earlier today – I took a few hours to run and see this movie and I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo glad that I did! All smiles from me!

The Best Man Holiday knocked my socks off – and made me have a need for A MILLION BOXES OF TISSUE –  The  movie was very well written and done and left me with the feelings of laughter – sadness – happiness – wanting to be married – respecting friends and family even the more – EVERYONE needs to see this movie because the message behind it is just utterly amazing!

I also saw THOR last weekend with my son and this movie was so good! Okay, the movie was great but THOR – GAWWWWD – whew – as I calm down and take my own blood pressure! LOL ….Seriously, it is very nice to be able to take my son to movies that I even grew up enjoying…..he loved it a great deal and I was glad. I am a little strict and I do NOT believe in allowing kids his age to watch abrasive movies, cussing, demonic and basically ANYTHING that is RATED R and to be honest even some PG movies are a bit too much for him. They are surely going to make a THOR 3

My Own Cross To Bear –


Okay, I understand that EVERYONE has their own morals, values, beliefs, stances and views. However, people that know me, respects the fact that I do not celebrate Halloween because of my OWN personal Christian views.

However, I am almost certain that because they state they are Christian as well – they try to make me UNDERSTAND why they celebrate it with their kids, friends and family. I do not judge them if they CHOOSE to celebrate the holiday but when they ask me about it – I tell them the foundation of the holiday is supported and uplifted but all of the following:

sorcerers – witches – warlocks and wizards ( and everything that is negative )

I call it the Devil’s birthday along with his own version of Christmas because besides Christmas and Thanksgiving – there is NO OTHER HOLIDAY that is celebrated like Halloween. I mean Valentine’s Day has even lost its zeal and does not have the same fire that American couples used to give it. Thanksgiving seems to be viewed more like a family / religious holiday ( which has been MY favorite holiday since a child )……

Some people just love scary movies, haunted things, calling out the dead, running around old cemeteries, practicing witch hunts and playing with ouije  (weegee) boards etc. Well, honey if people do not believe in the -real -NESS of HEAVEN and hell – I am so sorry – but I do and there is NOTHING fun about Halloween and dressing up like scary characters while worrying about how high the crime rate will go up for the night, while being scared to walk home on a night called Fright Night!

While going to a house that is supposed to be haunted and something always seems to happen negative but people become upset if something tragic happens to you – even though it was YOUR decision to put yourself in harm’s way all because of you not believing –

Halloween and MY FAITH just don’t go together!

I just do not get it…….I personally ENJOY having a peaceful night’s sleep and not having gory, creepy nightmares…..

Helping Self...

Just Thinking –


I have been exposed to diversity all of my life but over the last 10 years I have reshifted my focus towards my OWN community. Was it right? No? Did I feel that I had just cause? Yes – the way that the COMMUNITY acts towards one another from within the COMMUNITY left me no choice but to mentally – physically – emotionally – financially – and sometimes even spiritually from the community.

However, after seeing a movie on August 20, 2013 and it changed me in a way that I scared even myself – I love PEOPLE in general and watching history take place and unfold in front of me on a big screen with total silence in the room ( minus a few parts of a movie that may have been edited for viewing ) still made me become aware of emotions that I had NO IDEA I had the ability to even feel towards another person. However – after the movie was over – I went to go and “speak to myself” and purge what I was feeling –

Although I ONLY spoke for about 10 minutes – I still felt as if I indeed had soo much MORE to say – but I was TERRIFIED how it would actually leave from my lips – Black History has a great deal of blemishes in it….. but it cannot be ERASED but it can be used as a tool of how WE ALL CAN do better and promote and push for LOVE AND EQUALITY – Did I get upset? Yes, Did I cry? YES, Did I become bitter? No, Did I pause and re-evaluate my friendships of anyone who is white in my life? Yes.

Did it change my views of them? NO!!  Ugghhh!! Racism is ugly …

Now that I am BETTER and I have CALMED myself down – I feel great – I feel good – I feel free – I feel blessed – I feel strong – I feel different – I feel worthy – I feel accomplished – I feel valued – I feel blessed – I feel invincible – I feel beautiful – I am just honored that I can EVEN FEEL ANYTHING –

Tried Something Different –


I wanted to start going to see movies that I normally WOULD NOT be interested in going to….. BUT yesterday I went to see G.I. Joe and today I went to see Temptation. I love The Rock ( Duane Johnson ) and even as a child, I loved G.I. Joe but I am not a fan sometimes of how they are over sensationalized my childhood cartoons and making them into movies…. I did not like the last G.I. film but this one made MORE SENSE and felt more real ( besides the PRESIDENT being able to change into someone else – it reminded me of the girl who played in The Wolverine movie. ( charlize Theron – played that blue character! LOL )

 

Okay next…..Wow…..is all that I can say… first let me deal with the Tyler Perry flick called Temptation….

PLEASE let the record show, I feel that  I am not a HUGE Tyler Perry fan and I feel it is because MADEA was played and forced down my throat by way of film and media it made me SICK OF HIM…. Of course, he could care less what I felt but at this point for me to support him….he must CONTINUE to do films like Good Deeds ( amazing ) A Family That Preys ( he should have made a movie like this after the 2nd Madea film ) Why Did I Get Married 1 and 2 ( real life and didn’t feel staged ) and then this movie Temptation …..

I do not watch all black casts movies because MOST ……or at least the ones that I have given a chance BEFORE Tyler Perry started producing movies ALL ended up with the black man getting shot, being disrespectful to women, a thug, a thief, a drug dealer or had AT LEAST 12 baby mammas! The women always slept with AT LEAST 12 different men, held drugs for boyfriends, were the mistress, lacked education, spoke so slang it hurt my ears..etc..etc..etc..

So to be HONEST…….. with Tyler Perry having the God – given ability to make movies with all black casts with the film being POSITIVE, FAITH FILLED AND A MESSAGE all included??!!!$%$%$%$ WOW… KUDDOS to him for real or any producer who can do that, regardless if they are black or white.

So umm.. yeah that is why I do not support all black films… I am a black women with 4 degrees, a single parent with a kid who has been on high honor roll ever since his feet touched the school grounds, he plays two instruments, plays tennis, basketball, baseball and soccer, loves to read and speaks with intelligence!

I do not see an example of MYSELF or MY SON in any of these films so why should I support them in ANY WAY? Dont worry because I am not…. but for this movie called Temptation – it was worth the 2 hours.
