A MoveMe vs A Movie

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 COLOR

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

FAST COLOR 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 who bears strong signs of checkered waywardness and self-inflicted hurdles from the past that are on a straight trajectory to the future  – unless something changes. Saniyya Sidney portrays Lila; she is 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 COLOR 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 COLOR 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  your soul.

 

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:

.

magnificient7-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

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.
