Get on Up (2014)
This Movie Shows A Part Of James Brown's Life
This movie goes back and forwards about times in James Brown's life. We now know how James Brown became the famous entertainer that he was until he died. His mother left him as a child. Then his father gave him to an aunt to live. He was charged as an adult for stealing when he was still a child. James Brown demanded respect and expected all his musicians to put forth 100% at all times. There were many great actresses in this movie. It had Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis, Tika Sumpter, and Jill Scott! There is no mention about James Brown's life after 1988! He did many things after then. He married two more women and had another child.
This Movie Is Not Biblical At All!
Christians know the story of Noah building the ark, all the animals going on the ark two by two, it raining for 40 days and 40 nights, and the entire world flooding. Noah's sons and their wives were the only people who believed him and went on the ark. Everyone else was destroyed by flood. Well, this movie does NOT portray the Noah story like that! Noah is portrayed as one of the meanest people in the bible! He lets an innocent woman die in the flood. He talks ugly to his son and wife. He wanted to kill two innocent newborn baby girls right after they were born! Also, Methuselum had no role in the bible, other than being the oldest man who ever lived. They gave him a significant role in this movie. Plus, rock men attacking Noah and others. A mean man getting on the ark. This movie should not have been named "Noah!" This movie was a waste of my money, even though I received free tickets to see it!
A Madea Christmas (2013)
Another Tyler Perry Madea Comedy With Morals
Once again Madea does many crazy mean things in this movie, such as steal from the job that she was fired from and hang a small child to a cross in the classroom for stealing. Anna Maria Horsford has been type-casted as a silly, whiny, obnoxious woman in every thing that she plays in! Tika Sumpter plays a teacher in a very small school. Larry The Cable Guy plays the redneck father. This movie mixes comedy with serious messages. Interracial marriage. Corruption. Keeping family secrets. An abusive father. Bullying. How can a teacher get fired in a school just because a parent says so without going before the school board? And who signs a contract without reading it?
One Eight Seven (1997)
Another Movie Where Samuel L. Jackson Plays A Good Guy.
Samuel L. Jackson plays teacher Trevor Garfield in a rough NYC high school. He was a dedicated teacher who felt threatened by a student. Why didn't the principal do something? He gets stabbed several times by the student after leaving the apathetic principal's office! Fifteen months later, he ends up in LA. The sub line called him to sub in one of the most rundown, worst high schools in LA. Subs do not make a lot of money! The average person would have walked out of that school and never returned. But Mr. Garfield stayed for a while until another apathetic principal fired him! Why did Mr. Garfield cry in front of the principal? Embarrassing! And why did he let a female student come into his house anyway? She ended up naked on his sofa! It is obvious that the administration let the students walk all over the teachers in that school. Caesar and Bennie should have been expelled and sent to a detention home! And the history teacher who had a gun in his desk should have been fired on the spot and have his teacher's license revoked! There was one thing that was never proved in the movie. Did Mr. Garfield kill Bennie and cut off Caesar's finger?
Joyful Noise (2012)
This Was Another Creative Movie With Serious Sub Plots!
Queen Latifah proved once again that not only can she act, but she can sing too! Lauren "KeKe" Palmer played the average rebellious teenager in this movie. Why did they make Queen Latifah's son have autism in this movie? That was just one of the serious plots! I got tired of hearing Dolly Parton's annoying voice in this movie! Kirk Frankin and his choir were showboating in this movie. I like the choir with the children singing and the little boy was singing his solo in soprano and speaking in tongues. Courtney B. Vance broke out of his serious monotone acting during part of this movie. We all knew that Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton's showoff choir was going to win the competition.
The Women of Brewster Place (1989)
This Movie Deals With Everything Controversial!
This movie deals with each and every controversial topic you could think of during that time period. Abuse. Teenage pregnancy. Lesbianism. Rape. Ciel had an abortion. The husband that she had was hateful. Then the baby she already had suddenly died. Oprah's character was beat horribly by Paul Winfield's character until mother Mary Alice tried to shoot him. Then Oprah's son got sent to jail. There was a lady who had a house full of children with no father. The lesbian woman almost beat an innocent old man to death for no reason. There were many other controversial topics in this movie, but there were too many to list here.
Bad Teacher (2011)
This Is The Most Creative Movie That Cameron Diaz Has Ever Starred In!
Cameron Diaz, plays a stuck up, gold digging, manipulative 7th grade English teacher in this movie. She lets the students watch movies every day in class until she finds out that the teachers receive a bonus for having the highest test scores. Then she starts to teach. She humiliates 7th grade students who get questions wrong and then hits them with dodge balls. Then she cheats to win the bonus. Then she gets promoted to guidance counselor. Unfortunately, Cameron Diaz's character reminds me of many teachers in Virginia schools. They don't really teach. They get away with so much. They cheat so their students can have the highest test scores. And they never get in trouble with the principal, despite their horrible teaching. Teachers who are dedicated like Mrs. Squirrel in the movie never get any respect. This movie was creative and a slight exaggeration of what really goes on daily in public schools in Virginia.
Preacher's Kid (2010)
This Was A Great Movie!
Who would have thought that Letoya Luckett could act? She has proved that she is the best actress from Destiny's Child. And who would have thought that Tammy Townsend could sing? And who would have thought that Tank could sing? Clifton Powell did a great job as the hateful director for the stage show. Angie was one of the most stupid movie characters that I have ever seen! She behaved as a strong woman during parts of the movie, but continued to be used and abused during other parts of the movie. It was good to see fly Essence Atkins and Raeven Kelly in this movie. This movie had serious messages. Look at the deleted scenes to see Dawn Lewis' role in the movie.
Amazing Grace (1974)
Moms Mabley's Last Movie
This movie was so funny and crazy! Moms Mabley made wise crack remarks throughout this entire movie. And she always talked in a deep voice. Why didn't she wear dentures? And Slappy White was happy go lucky throughout the entire movie. The funniest scene was when Moms Mabley got into an argument with Rosalind Cash's drunk character. She was the most interesting politician's wife ever in a movie for that time period. Overall, this movie was stupid. But it had a lot of great actors who are no longer with us, such as Moses Gunn and Dolph Sweet. Look for Clifton Davis making a cameo in this movie and Debbie Morgan making a walk on role in this movie before she became a star.
Due Date (2010)
This Movie Was So Creative!
Is it possible for someone to have such bad luck in one movie? How can someone's bags get switched at the beginning of the movie? Who carries weed on a plane? How can someone be put on a "no fly zone" so soon? The guy with the beard was so manipulating throughout the entire movie that is wasn't funny! I am mad they gave Jamie Foxx an almost "walk on" role in this movie. If Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Foxx would have left the crazy guy (who carries his fathers ashes in a coffee can), then that would have ruined the plot of the entire movie. We should have known that the baby would end up being a girl instead of a boy. And in real life, no one rides across the country in a car with a man that he had just met!
