A MoveMe vs A Movie

FilmProjector_ReelTapeWhat’s the difference between a #MoveMe and a #Movie?
Everything.

Just because they are both excellent examples of #Reel does not make them the same.

Over the last 7-days I have patronized Harkins Theaters for two reasons: Queen of Katwe and Magnificent 7. One was a cool #Movie and one was a familial #MoveMe. I enjoyed them both. If you have not seen them but are planning to, you may want to stop reading here and resume once you’ve seen them.

I’m not going to delve in too deep, but let’s do mount the back of MAGNIFICENT 7 with Paullets  awesome lifetime beau, Denzel:

☝🏾It’s a western
☝🏾it’s little longer than 1.5 hours
☝🏾it was dusty only by geography though wet in scripted situation.

Denzel plays the role of a US Marshal who would normally bounty hunt for justice recon but was contracted by a grieving widow to bring forth the man that who killed her husband in cold blood at the start of the film.

There are many shootings and killings along the way though the most compelling was when the Marshal found the murderer and began running off a list of personal grievances…

WHAT!?  The Marshal had a personal grievance with the “widow maker?” And like you wouldn’t you believe.

Have you seen it? It’s a Magnificent way to spend the better part of 2-hours.

I’m a horse rider myself, I love to saddle and blaze the trail.
The journey that the Mag 7 blazed was dusty as hell

But the writing held us captive for a spell and time passed smooth.
I was into “the law” and his black stallion groove.

The widow reaped her due – the Marshal just opened the door.
MAGNIFICENT 7 was a reel dimensional score.

It was good to see Denzel in this piece. My God he is fine.
I’m Qui
Screening movies for thee and divvying the rewind.

The M7 #Movie is an awesome way to spend your time.

QUEEN OF KATWE

NEW COMER: Madina Nalwanga portrayed Phiona and Lupita portrayed her mother.

I mean what can I say? Life is a game that must be played
and if your going up against Phiona on chess – you’ll likely be slayed.

Remember the film FRESH from way back when?
Lil’ dude would skip school to give ‘old chess heads’ a spin?

Queen of Katwe connects  past reels and yields to mind
The strategy of game when all is on the line.

Disney picked a fine film to produce with this piece.
It offers tangible confidence in an otherwises dim release.

Uganda may not be flashy in the western worlds sight
But the mind of one young girl found F3 and took flight.

2007: She learned to play chess amidst social mockery and laughter.
Though by year 2012 she was celebrated as being a Chess Master.

Born in Ugandan slum, Phiona Mutesi was poor and her hygiene wreaked,
But the way she ‘spanked in chess’ made folks sit up and think.

FRESH starred Samuel L. Jackson and Sean Nelson

This film is a champion of encouragement!
I saw a screening earlier this month and couldn’t wait to vent.

I absolutely DID cry in the theater.
This film wasn’t about any  glitz or glitter.

This film was about owning your destiny.
Lupita played Phiona’s mom. She reminded me of me.

Phiona’s mother is a fighter and she has shaped her child.
I saw myself in Phiona as well – I don’t mind the miles.

Phiona’s part was played by Madina Nalwanga – and WOW!
This young lady’s authentic talent is the cats meow!

Boom! pOW! I enjoyed her internal and external glow.
Queen of Katwe was an absolute refreshing show.

This is a #MoveMe, not just a movie.
The contents therein did groove me.

The life impact stays with you – long time.
I’m Qui
Keeping it reel with thee in the form of Griot chimes.

What have you got up this weekend? Doing anything extra groovy?
In the event your plans aren’t in cement –  grab a friend and catch a movie

And embrace the experience.
#Movie vs #MoveMe
