A MoveMe vs A Movie

In Movies, Networking, News, TV Shows, Video on July 22, 2019 at 5:07 am

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

Just because both are excellent examples of #ReelScience and are entertaining – they are not the same.

Over the last 15-days I have patronized DIRECTV OnDemand and CINEMA services more than I have AMC and I must say my couch gives those theater recliners comfy-competition. Don’t get me wrong, I have lost no love for patronizing the movie theater – in fact, it’s just the opposite, between my homework and career, I have very little time for movie date nights or afternoon solo-movie outings.  Thank God for satellite and streaming services. The two movies that have inspired me did so equally; though they affected me differently. One is a #MoveMe and one is a #Movie:

FAST COLORS
+
US

Let’s talk about FAST COLORS first. Do you know Julia Hart?
I didn’t before this film and I love our introductory start.

FAST COLORS is about three generations of women within one family who have a relative supernatural gift that has global healing effects. Bo, (short for Bonnie) the matriarch and is portrayed by Lorraine Toussaint and her gift is being able to transform solids into atom-sized particles and manipulate them. Gugu Mbatha-Raw portrays Ruth, the only child of Bo and who’s past is checkered with waywardness and self-inflicted hurdles from the past straight to the future. Saniyya Sidney plays Lila, the only beloved

grandchild of Bo’s and the daughter of Ruth. This film is not a feel-good-family feature in the beginning. To be fair, the opening of the film canvases what looks like a mother/young daughter bond processing before sharp transitional glitches propel the footage into a scene of chaos only including a young girl.

After a few jarring scene snippets at the opening, I figured that the writer/director was trying to piece something together for us; though for me, the pieces did not quite fit. Then ACT 2 brought it all together…literally. Fast Colors is about being able to see your purpose; previsualizing the task before you and working it out accordingly. This family’s life task would not only serve them well in becoming a tighter family unit but it actually offered a huge benefit to the world.

Their family reminded me of the possibilities within my own; I am expecting great achievements from specific family members who are not even aware that they encompass greatness. I cried at the screening of FAST COLORS because it painted a beautiful picture of hope in a time when the world needs it most. I was moved to be a more positive supporter of others who are lost or don’t exactly understand their purpose.

I literally took it to heart
and am encouraged to mimic the FAST COLORS art.

I took a deep breath and had a cocktail
before familial hope was nearly shot to hell

in US.
The slow beginning was rough

but it picked up quickly and took on a thicker plot at the end.
Not even I expected it and I was prompted with spoilers – by a friend.

Until ACT 2, I almost lost interest when I did not understand
the high capacity of the nightmare in the director’s hand.

My initial WHY arose when a mirrored family showed up in the protagonist family yard.
Had I known WHY I would have been more scared, but good Lord

I was immovable at the mayhem without my beloved why.
My film emotions were in place but were ‘activation’ shy.

Post the close of the movie, I had a clearer reflection of Jordan Peel‘s WHY.
Still, I feel I would have enjoyed a little more ACT 1 glue, i.e., sub-story insight.

Having said as much, this movie truly deserves all of its accolades and hype.
I enjoyed it in dimensions; Jordan Peel’s talent is quite ripe.

BOTH FILMS yielded fun and refreshing 411 that I wanted to know,
I’m Qui
One film made me jump and the other prompted me to grow.

Entertainment & Education go well in a fold.
The  d i f f e r e n c e  between
A #MoveMe vs. A #Movie
is how it  a f f e c t s  in your soul.

 

Hibbity Hump Day – Folks it’s Time To Slay

Hey, hey, hey!” Sounding like Rodg’s friend Dwayne,
What’s Happening” with you; how’s the view in your lane?

Me? I’m awake and up for goodgame.
Me? I’m the vehicle in the creative lane.

You? You’ve been on my mind for quite some time now;
different reasons ‘why‘ and dimensions on the ‘how.’

Believe me now, when I say that I’m enjoying the climb
that has delivered me to this day; my creative grind.

I’m happy y’all.
In a world of uncertainty, I have the gall.
I wish happiness for us all.
Flex your positive gall.

It’s Hibbity Hump Day, which sounds a lot like “hibbity hop.”
Saying “hibbity hop” reminds me of The Sugar Hill Gang – Hip Hop don’t stop.

Something like The HUSTLER’S CONVENTION, I’m a one-stop Griot shop.
I’m something like Lightnin’ Rod; The HC is not a publication that you can cop

but you can stay tuned to multiple flows like my own, for most Griotte’s are quite steady.
We are storytellers of the day born. I learned as much from Fab5Freddy.

I forget not, much. I am intrigued by various moves made.
I chronicle the view in rhyme. Griot is my mode of Slay.
Hey.

Hey-hey-hey!” I’m quoting Dwayne Nelson again,
I’m Qui
atop of this hump glad to be purveying and conveying What’s Happening.

It’s a total high day and I’m up for the win.
Come with. This vantage view is better with a friend.

Good morning sweetheart. How goes your morn?
I’m up feeling refreshed – waiting on the dawn.

May I get you a cup of jo and a warm face towel?
Would you like an additional consonant? How about a vowel?

Ooo child, the fun that I had over the Fourth of July weekend
included me, fireworks and a rather knowledgeable gentleman.

A really good friend
is always well-worth the spend.

The #ThoughtfulPositions that we find ourselves in…
Museful Monday come hug me; I’m most thankful for friends

that can meet me in thought and inject a win.
This is exactly how I want my week to begin:

I’m SO GONE with thoughts
of overlays that I’ve been taught.

Thank you, o’ relative fun-day.
I remain excited about my Museful Monday’s.

What bringeth you – me, to further top
just what I know is cooking in the shop?

Creativity in my composition has been renewed.
I filled ‘the pot’ with sweet grinds and it brewed.

Ooo-oo-oo.
Good Morning Museful MondayI’m so into you.

You’re strong and firm; comparable to Trinity/thrice.
I commit to sip intellectualism like CROWN ROYAL on ice:

Oh, I  appreciate this day, my life, my health, and my strength,

Oui Oui Oui – SHORTS TV

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on June 7, 2019 at 12:13 am
short-film-shorts

I love SHORTS…

For 14 hours a day and at least 5 days a week, I am watching short films. I keep the television in my office on DirecTV’s SHORTSTV channel. It’s a way for me to feel surrounded by my peers, be entertained, educated, and inspired. It’s also a great way to stay motivated on my own scriptwriting journey. I can’t watch a movie without counting shot types and how they are composed to convey the story. It’s a science, for sure.

Inference. My creative mind immediately goes to what happened before the film started and what could possibly happen after it has ended. I dabble in inference daily. It’s the stuff new creations are made of; it’s also the stuff that encourages me to stay on the path that I am pursuing. I’ve successfully completed several collegiate projects where I had to create characters and scripts for popular films and narrative series. I’ll admit that it can be tough to watch a film that you did not write, comprehend the characters, fall in love with the storyline and substories and create breath to strengthen and sustain its life — but I’m into it. Call me a script empath.

filmstrip-divider

It’s been a very long minute
since you and I have talked short films; all up in it.

So let’s begin it:


BITTER is an 11-minute film about a middle-aged man who finds himself shocked by his 21-year old daughters taste in men.
A well-seasoned rooster seems to be pecking his offspring-hen.

This is a comedy with a real gut feeling spin.
I think you’ll enjoy its ironic end.

FATIMA is a 29-minute short film
about the reality of an immigrant living in the dim.

The dim would be an “illegal status;” always over-the-shoulder looking.
For the good that Fatima was doing on her job, it resulted in police booking.

Though all could have cleared; resolved by proof of videotape
yielding one person with positional power to free or shoot to hell her fate.

That’s about all that I’m going to say about that. You should consider giving it a look.
Although revealing it could be quite healing. The ending was unexpected; I was shook.
.

IMPERVIA is a work of science fiction that breaths life into an impoverished family of droids. Yes – I said droids, as in androids; think ALIEN with Sigourney Weaver, remember the android on board? Formed like so, an impoverished family of droids is sought out by the governing authority to make some pretty conclusive decisions about the family’s habitation. My good friend and novelist, Marc Abbott stars as the protagonist and head of the droid family. His character is responsible for charting a vision that will yield them a taste of freedom; a way to re-enter society functionally under a system that currently deems them not worthy:

Last but not least – in fact, this one is quite the short thrill,
Christopher T. Wood reigns in this film titled: TIME TO KILL.

Not to be confused with Samuel L Jackson’s piece, A TIME TO KILL.
This short film is comical before getting comparably real:

filmstrip-divider

Unfortunately, BITTER and TIME TO KILL are the only two
that I could find complete short film views for you.

As for FATIMA and IMPERVIA, if you want to catch them completely,
the best suggestion I have for you is to tune into SHORTS TV.

Me? I’m amped up today because it’s Friday and I’ve got script composition on my mind,
I’m Qui
and between you and me, I’m glad to know VCR’s did not take with them the power to REWIND.

Me, you and ShortsTV — we’re going to be just fine.
Us and this literary light o’ mine…

Remember the heroes of yesterday…
they are the reason that you can safely play

outside at the park, in transit and at the game.
If it weren’t for our brave military our existence would be bane.

Have a Mindful Memorial Day to the survivors of those who we’ve lost.
We may not understand your depths, though we recognize your cost.

As you kneel, I’ll drape a cape on you and dust you off.
You, who were charged with carrying on; your hearts so soft.

Thank you for the sacrifice:
children, hubby and wife.

Thank you for sharing your heart, your boy and your girl.
A Mindful Memorial Day; let’s remember the brave that shaped our world.

They are only “dead” when we forget to be thankful for their sacrifice,

Have a Mindful Memorial Day baby – Democracy costs a high price.

Be thankful today, be happy and fully embrace this life.

THE INTRUDER

In Communication, Movies, Networking, News, Video on May 6, 2019 at 5:58 am

So Friday night my guy & I had a double date with Scott (Michael Ealy) & Annie, (Megan Good) and it was good.

We enjoyed a reel cookie cutter layout from Roger Corman‘s old hood.

I’m into seeing movies and move-me’s; God bless production movers –
It was good to see new chemistry in the old lab of The INTRUDER.

I’m not really sure about the initial intentions of reviving this piece –
It wasn’t about innovation, resolution or love’s slow release.

It was a pretty decent remake of the same-named film
Dennis Quaid did great as Charlie, following William Shatner’s hem

as a disturbed white man whose pissed at the presence of black neighbors.
In 1962 the film highlighted discourse and sewing divisive vapors.

In this years THE INTRUDER Dennis played a disturbed guy
with only a remnant of racism coursing through his spine.

He was the seller of a big and beautiful countryside home surrounded by lushes of green.
He wanted to sell it and still dwell in it — an attached squatter if you know what I mean.

Among creeping around the new couples home without them knowing,
Charlie was making plans to assume Scott’s life and duly start sewing

“home seeds” with Scott’s beloved Annie;
thinking he and she could start a family.

There was mayhem and while all scenarios clicked,
I was sad to see Scott repeatedly get his butt kicked

so many times from Charlie; but Scott was a desk nerd.
Annie drew strength from a pan and her fist 
revealing survival skills when she s’kerd.

Deon Taylor is the director and producer of this remake
he is listed as the same in Traffik‘s sobering pace.

Remember that?
Paula Patton delivers like ‘Turner & Pat.’

Today’s Intruder film wasn’t hung up on race
but the face of a man with disturbing headspace.

Charlie’s daughter is all that he has in this world to co-sign his life,
but not even she wants anything to do with him because he took her mother’s life.

There were moments in the theater that I jumped out of unexpected fright.
It may be a remake film, but it’s perfect for a little date night.

There were hairy moments where I preferred to cuddle a little tight…
Like when Charlie was peeping-in on Annie in the shower one night.

I’m sure my guy enjoyed the double play:
him watching Megan in the shower and me being okay.

Annie’s body was a total fit slay. I admired the silhouette.
I’m thinking Charlie did too, he seemed to relish in her being wet.

Sex made a couple of debuts atop of the young couples sheets.
My guy and I were watching via Charlie’s secret peep.

It was line crossing  – still, actors Megan and Michael were flossing in this flick.
The legendary Dennis Quaid contorted his craft to display the encroaching counter-dick.

I’m sure the role won’t stick. Dennis is far too likable.
Catch him on the move in his string new of commercials.

Plus, you won’t be expecting the pivotal wording at the films end,
I’m Qui
and I figured I knew much about the script before going in…

I am pleased to concede that I didn’t.
Deon is pretty good at directing, producing and revealing the hidden.

 

The Princess, The Pea: QUANTUM PHYSICS, you and me

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on May 3, 2019 at 7:24 am

the-princess-and-the-pea.jpgOh yes, if there is a loose piece of lent in my sock – I will feel it.
If there’s a boo-boo that’s not progressing too well, I’m tuned-up to heal it.

I’m not a doctor nor yet a scientist, just curiously Qui.
But for the sensitivity of my senses, you may call me The Princess with The Pea.

I feel it all. Are you happy? Me too.
I emit colors in words, deeds and the actions that I do.
When you least expect it, I truly feel you.

I always wondered how such a connection could be?
I’m spiritually connected to you and you to me.

Together, we should join energies and harvest big love.
Quantum Physics reminds me that we’re in a Milky Way hug
nestled in the arms of stellar matter and such…
Together,  we should join energies and harvest big love.

Quantum Physics includes the universe and the evolution of stars.
It’ll put you in perspective as to how big you really are.

You’re not so big at all and your energy is no bigger than the dust
that is collected and perfected in the stellar arms that we trust.

There are about 50 additional galaxies  near us in this Milky Way crest
reminding me that I should remain unbiased on which star is the best.

The sun is a middle-aged star in the prime of her life,
she’s not too close or too hot to yield us a divine light.

I call light divine because when you really give it thought
the sun functions under no assumptions that it has been purchased or bought.

It shines on command
per the Creator’s plans.

The Creator’s hands… oh! they are much bigger than yours.
You’ve not made a thing in this world where greater pride should soar.

We are so little.
We’re in the prime of Earth, somewhere in her middle.

The sun is a star and stars go through completed stages of life.
To be frank with you fam, we need to learn how to travel by light.

The galaxy is big and our sun is an averaged sized star.
Our black hole is inactive but what are we really on par

for?
Our energy on Earth is on a collision course.

Have you had a chance to study Quantum Physics? It supersedes understanding chess.
diamond shape.jpgThe world and its wars never bothered me, I’m concerned about the Milky Way crest.

She is beautiful and she is bigger than us.
We are Earthians and are capable of love.
We are beings who need more than a hug.
Take a look like Galileo — and into the quantum do thrust.

Global warming is real and every star has its stages of life.
Sure the Earth is mid-cycle, but that doesn’t mean live trife.

Plastic products: you were a take-out hit but now it’s inevitable that you be banned.
God gave us a fruitful Earth and we’re trashing the land with convenience by our own hands.

We shan’t.
Doing so throws this Princess into a rant.

There are quite a few Pea’s that we need to deal with.
You don’t want the legacy of humanity to cease to exist.

To live is to participate in more than a convenient drive by.
Have you seen the universe? It’s amazing that we have this life.

Let’s do something positive with it.
Conjur up some praise and let God hear it.

You’re comfy in your borough and suburb; for tomorrow, you don’t fear it.
Though if it’s the Milky Way’s black hole vs. Earth: we’re all ended.

See. It’s little facts like that, that mounts a pea in my sheets,
I’m Qui
a curious she; I’m interested in understanding more about “QP.”

Good morning fam, the world is a stellar jam and I’m with it.
Live a good life because the universe is alright –
and thank God for the knowledge of Quantum PHYSICS.

MONDAY’S PROMPT

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, Self Improvement, Video on April 29, 2019 at 6:43 am

Good morning Monday. Where have you been girl?
There’s so many vibrations that are moving the world.

There’s Beyonce’s new song, “BEFORE I LET GO,”
and Taylor Swifts “ME” video hit the air like WOAH!

In 24-hours Swift’s new vid has been seen more than 45 million times!
Taylors view balled and doled basketball to the side.

That’s what’s up.
Monday is an exciting weekday cut.

I prayed and I’m up; today I roam this Cali space.
I’m out here on assignment – I do love this place.

The royal service at The Westin is something I could get used to.
I’m the writer peeping their stylo — I love the high-rise view.

Good morning, good morning, good morning to you!
I’m feeling refreshed – so how do you do?

There’s a lot of creativity in the air this morn
dawning after Bey and Swift‘s new babies were born.

I’ve slept like a baby in this penthouse suite.
It’s a great escape from Texas and Arizona’s heat.

Though without you, I am hardly me –
I pray for guidance from the heavenly

Father.
So, don’t bother

chiming in with Earth-leaning advice
about where women should go or do with our lives.

Pardon our force of FORMATION; we’re in assembly.
Bey, Taylor, Shondra and Ava are all sisters to me.

We are like that AVENGERS scene in END GAME when -ish got real
and the women relieved the men to wipe up the battlefield.

Did you see it? It was great.
Avengers put TRANSITIONS on our plate.

Things are changing in the AVENGER dynamic.
Captain A passed off his shield – he did hand it

to another.
Believe or not, t’was passed to a brother.

Hm? The depth of the writing
was real-world-metaphore and exciting.

America needs saving and we all can help.
The Captain may be retiring for America’s health.

She needs help from all of her occupants, especially the women.
America is in trouble but not out of the count to keep winnin.’

Our unity is what bears all and keeps our vibe in mode “grinning.”
Avengers END GAME was about sustaining the winning.

Are you in?
It’s MONDAY morning and we can begin again.

Give me some, because this -ish is all the way live.
I’ll take the full report and Five on the Black Hand Side:


.
Are you down to ride? Yesterday’s CD ROM was hot.
Mueller’s report is a bulky sport and it don’t stop.

Sounds like lyrics made for Hip Hop. Feels like we’re experiencing a growth spurt;
though after the report was made public it’s likely the CIC’s stomach hurt.

The heat is up and is duly on the back of some folks neck.
The Mueller report is alive; the administration is wrecked.

There were a bunch of Oh’s pointing to an X; lets just call the x variable Defendant One.
Gimme Some when the gander is done – I’m off to have a weekend of yum!

Bummed is what the news out of Washington, DC had been of late;
things started to shake last night and tomorrow is 420 Day.
Hip-hip hooray!

Exhale long.
Let your hair down; let nothing be wrong.

Drop the stress as common unity increases.
Tell your stressed out comrade to not to fall to pieces:

.

Today feels like it’s going to produce words that should be composed into a song.
Kinfolk, I’m just happy and pray that we can all prosper and get along.

I prayed that for yesterday, today and I’ve already prayed it for tomorrow.
I really hope the light is truly in view and behind us is the bulk of sorrow.

New Peruse? “Whatchu’ talkin’ about  Willis?” I ain’t been in the mood.
It’s hard on a Griot to keep singing the blues about a variable fool.
