Hey folks,

 

As promised here’s my review for 42.

 

I plan to post a full length review of movies I’ve seen and rented this year later on so for now here’s a short review.

42 follows the first 2 years of Jackie Robinson’s baseball career. Throughout the film, Jackie must overcome the challenges associated with being a person of color in a time when America was literally black-and-white and the idea of a black baseball player being put on an all white team was unheard of.

Overall, the film was good, acting was top notch, story was easy to follow and the setting as a period film was spot on.

Being a person of color myself, I learned from watching this film what it’s like to be in a black-and-white situation and trying to find that one patch that’s a shade of gray or a box of 64 Crayola crayons.

I can honestly say it’s not easy but there’s ways to work around it.

Films like The Great Debaters, 42 and The Help were set in during historical times when people of color struggled to attend school, finding jobs, keeping their families above water and maintaining friendships.

Although Blacks have come along way since then, there’s still many trying to get by on a daily basis and people who still see things in black-and-white and not a shade of gray or a variety of colors.

Aside from that, 42 is one of the best movies I’ve seen so far this year.

There’s a few other films on my list I plan to check out this year so stay tuned for more reviews!

That wraps it up for this month.

See ya in June!

Season Finales


Hey folks,

With Summer almost here, it’s time for… yep, season finales!

During this time of year, networks air season finales of various shows. Ok, before anyone panics about what to watch until Shark Tank returns in the Fall, networks often fill those timeslots with summer series or movies.

Many networks sometimes air re-runs of the previous season of a certain show.

It’s a great way for fans to catch up on episodes they missed.

Another thing about summer is vacation time.

Yes, I said it. So even if you can’t find something good on a TV, there’s always something interesting to do during the summer.

Go to a movie, check out that exciting new dinosaur exhibit at the museum…(I’ve done both, by the way). You get the idea.

So whether you decide to spend your summer in an air conditioned house or hotel room watching TV or heading to the beach. I recommend taking a camera, trust me it comes in handy for those ‘Kodak’ moments.

See ya on Wednesday!

Hey folks,

As promised here’s the follow up for my parents anniversary.

It went well handed out gifts, cards and topped the evening off with a nice desert.

Also got my Mom a bouquet of peach colored roses.

Overall it was a good day.

Plan to wrap it up by going to see the movie, 42 and grabbing some barbeque from Famous Dave’s.

Keep an eye out for an update on that.

See ya on Monday!
