Hoodlum.....what can I say, if you had cool Grandparents that grew up in
Harlem in the 1930's who liked to party, dress and play numbers then maybe
you'd of heard some of the stories about the going ons in Harlem U.S.A.
during that period. Numbers were literally the Black mans lottery back
and communication between runner and player no matter how small the amount
played was the lug that connected dreams with hope for the little guy;
Hoodlum is a story about the preservation of those hopes and dreams by a
Bumpy Johnson. The music, wardrobe and cinematography is superb, I highly
recommend this tale of Harlem history.
I propose that even people that do not like westerns will love Tombstone; It is a movie about history, it is a strong love story, a western gangster movie and a movie about a true friendship that will not be broken 'TILL THE DEATH'......I keep this movie in my D.V.D. player and wore out two video tapes before that. This is a MUST HAVE for western lovers and a JUST GET IT for movie fans...VAL KILMER was robbed!!!!!
Joan Allen and Jeff Bridges add the icing to this masterpiece whose total
ingriedients bake up some of the best performances the players have ever
delivered in all of their careers.In an almost perfect closing speech Jeff
Bridges and the writer reach deep into my soul and touch the very core of
ethical beliefs and stir them up.I was on an emotional
rollercoaster.......GREAT WORK.....thankyou Dreamworks!!!!
