Crazy Rich Asian does CRAZY 💴 🤑 💴 GOOD at the Movie 🎥 Box Office ‼️

News Flash!!! 📸 “Crazy Rich Asians” is now the biggest romantic comedy hit film…in three years!!!

This delightful movie centers around Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), an economics professor from New York…who is dating Nick Young (Henry Golding), also a professor.

When Chinese American, Rachel…goes to Nick’s family home in Singapore… She discovers that he comes from great family wealth… –and- he’s considered one of the country’s most eligible bachelors!

-Wow!- Wait… wait….wait… there’s MORE to this intriguing saga. Rachel has to deal with jealous socialites,… Nick’s quirky relatives and his hard core mother! A strong & proud woman..who… disapproves of her son’s choice in a mate..

See….. people all over the world face the same problems in life. It’s a bonus… to gain insight from the wisdom and choices of others… when you focus in on situations… through a different lense… Rightttt?????

After dating a year… Rachel & Nick step into the spotlight… and quite a bit of chaos when they attend Nicks best friends wedding.

Hold Up‼️🖐🏽

When I tell you this is “THE” most ✨spectacular✨ wedding that I have EVER seen in my ENTIRE LIFE….

✨You Better BELIEVE IT!✨

Never in my wildest DREAMS… could I have imagined anything so BEAUTIFUL!!!! It was

✨✨BREATHTAKING!!!✨✨

The fabulous Singapore event is just one of the memorable factors in this storyline that is simply charming and funny!

Most definitely a FEEL GOOD movie… it a culturally enriching masterpiece… that should not be missed! How gratifying to see that people from all races… and nationalities are connecting to a GOOD STORY… and not a presentation with people who ONLY look like them! #Yay! for #diversity & #inclusion again!

Another special feature of this film.. is it sparks your desire to TRAVEL! The glamorous depiction of Singapore will definitely give tourism a boost! I’m certainly ready for a scenic adventure! ✈️ 👍🏽🎏🎎

“Crazy Rich Asians” is the first Hollywood film in 25 years… that puts an Asian-American story in the spotlight… with an ALL ASIAN CAST. The last big success was “The Joy Luck Club” in 1993.

The movie is based on a best-selling novel 👇🏽

Kevin Kwan published ” Crazy Rich Asians in 2013…

Kwan was immediately approached by a producer.. who wanted to take the project to the Big Screen… “If” he turned the heroine (Rachel), into a “white girl….” Say what?????

Well… Kwan politely said “NO THANK YOU… that’s not what this is about.. you’ve missed the point completely.

It took some years… but Kwan was finally able to see his vision unfold on the big screen the way he intended. Movie goers get to see incredible scenery… delectable foods… and lavish wardrobes.. It’s a celebration of beauty and culture in every possible way. I was absolutely thrilled to feast my eyes on this wonderful production, and it’s ALL Asian cast.

I was “thrilled” to see this movie publicized well… and get a LOT of positive buzz prior to it’s release.

The movie lived up to EVERY bit of the hype! It was an incredible experience… that filled my heart ♥️ with great JOY!!!

Just when I thought I had watched the most beautiful jewels, scenery… set designs food and fashions…. There was more! Everything just keep getting better… and more lavish! There is such attention to detail with every aspect in this movie! Kudos to all the people who made this project possible!!!! A huge round of APPLAUSE!

✨✨✨ 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 ✨✨

I knew I was going to support the film… but the PR campaign…made me look forward to going.

I’m glad a lot of other people also showed up in theaters… and continue coming in BIG numbers.. after “word of mouth” recommendations…

This tremendous show of support by Movie goers has made this movie #1 !!!! Yep! The crazy big bucks… are STILL ROLLING in from around the globe! 🌎

#Chaching! $$$💰 $$$$💰$$$$💰 $$$$💰

With the HUGE SUCCESS of other culturally diverse films… starring people of color like “Black Panther” —> “Girls Trip” —>

“Hidden Figures” —-> “Get Out” —> It sets well in my soul… that ALL people are finally embracing great movies… about people who come from different cultures… and walks of life… and more importantly… Hollywood

Studios are recognizing the fact that people will buy tickets… and this diverse films are a BIG DEAL! Hey! They’ve got to keep this good fortune going for minority cast… and give fans what they want! Not to mention… great roles for actors of color… who deserve to earn a living… and be recognized for their talent! There so many other great stories out there… and people of color who have the ideas.. and story treatments. I’m keeping HOPE ALIVE… that the studios will do MORE to recruit people who have been waiting for a shot! From writers.. and producers…to more EXECUTIVES and actors of color…

Yours truly has been waiting patiently for a major breakthrough… while writing ✍🏽 BLOGS like this one.. and maintains “SPARKLE -E!!” I’m proud to support those who have finally made it!!! Hooray for this film… and all the others featuring minority performers! 👍🏽👍🏽

The HUMAN EXPERIENCE is relatable to each and every one of us. When it gets down to it… we are really more alike than different.

We face similar challenges in life…and value the same wonderful experiences. Every deserves a bit of sweetness and goodness… because life can be rough! Going to a nice movie…is sometimes the closest people can get to a Happy Ending…

I appreciate being entertained, enlightened and educated from a different point of view… It’s always refreshing to be exposed to something NEW! That’s EXACTLY why… people need to be open and willing to just do it!!!

Your Spirit will be grateful!!! 🙏🙏🏽🙏🏼🙏🏻🙏🏾🙏🏻

An amazing night… at the 2018 Daytime ☀️Emmys

Oh yes… It was quite… a night! 🌙✨

I thought the 2018

Daytime ☀️ Emmys…. was just fascinating to watch! There were so many great moments… but I’m only going to highlight a few ✨shining✨ examples…

The Daytime Emmys took place…at the Pasadena auditorium.. in Pasadena, Ca… The grand affair was hosted again this year by Mario Lopez (“Extra”) and Sheryl Underwood..from (“The Talk”)

At the beginning of the show…they expressed support for the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Lopez also said, “Let me be clear: This is not a show about politics.”

It was a show celebrating the best things to watch on television during during the day… Everything from soap operas… to talk shows… variety shows… informative programming… and game shows…

Wayne Brady was absolutely stunned when he won the award for outstanding game show host.

Brady has hosted “Let’s Make a Deal” since 2009…and has been nominated for best game show host every year — This was Host first WIN! He said he was hungry… and about to leave and go to a restaurant to eat… He also admitted that he thought Steve Harvey was going to win…

While Brady thanked his production team and staff…the teleprompter directed him to wrap it up, Brady kept talking… and said: “It took me nine years to get here. Suck it!”

The audience applauded and laughed… and Brady cherished the rest of his time onstage…with his 15-year-old daughter, Maile.

Another Fantastic father daughter moment on stage was between Host Mario Lopez… and his adorable daughter Gia.

She was sharp and spunky with her Dad presenting several awards categories… My heart melted when that cute little voice said “ This is fun Daddy… Can we do more?!”

Cute little Gia enthusiastically danced on stage to the upbeat music in between… and did a fantastic job… like a real pro! I certainly can see her following her Dad’s footsteps being ona cool kids show… If that is what she really wants to do. Gia certainly has the presence… and the personality!

Another cool thing about this show… is that the winners can bring anyone they like on stage for the acceptance…

It’s really nice to see several members of the cast or crew… and loved ones involved… Family members, and even a 🐕 Dog this year! Doggone right he was on stage… standing at attention for the big moment. Who says presenting an award has to be….. ( wait for it…..) 🐶 #ruff! 🐾🐾🐾

Harley, is the service dog and “best friend” of a soap star.

General Hospital actor Chris Van Etten, was a Marine who lost both his legs when a bomb went off in Afghanistan in 2012. He presented an award and shared his story. He was joined on stage by Actor Brandon McMillan, the host of “Lucky Dog,”

Speaking of Luck… The talk was favored with another Emmy this year!

Last year… they snagged the award for outstanding talk show Hosts…

This year…The Talk… on CBS won for best talk show… and the Audience was extremely excited. The show has an extremely loyal fan base..consistently keeping the show fueled with high powered energy… and reactions to topics, and other exciting things happening on the show….

Host Sharon Osborne was missing for the victory… because she was committed to another program…

meanwhile former host Ayisha Tyler, and new talk host Eve… were both on stage… to share in the victory! Congratulations to the ladies of the talk!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏽🙌🙌🏿🙌🏼🙌🏾🙌🏻🙌🏽

Talk about more unexpected winners… The ladies from “The real” was filled with emotion… when they gathered on stage to accept the award for Best Talk Show Hosts!

“We are in pure shock,” Loni Love said, and started crying. The other hosts — Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Houghton and Jeannie Mai —took turns at the mic… filled with joy… emphasizing the importance of a talk show that stars women of color.

Another one of my favorite moments of the night…was seeing two favorite icons from my childhood honored for their creative shows! Can you believe it’s the 50th anniversary of “Mr Roger’s Neighborhood… always a “pleasant day in the neighborhood!” It was calming to see him walk through the door🚪 and take of his sweater and shoes..👞 Then… you could hardly wait… to see what wonderful things would unfold… during the course of the show… Favorite characters… activities… arts and crafts and All!!! I just loved ❤️ every single thing!!!! 😄

I loved watching Mr. Rogers neighborhood… and the wonderful and wacky world of Sid & Marty Krofft

Sid & Marty… are a sibling team of television producers who were influential in children’s television and variety show programs in the USA 🇺🇸

–particularly throughout the 1970s and early 1980s

I remember one of their amusement theme parks being on top of a building in downtown Atlanta….

It was ..super fun… and something “different” to do..

In the soap opera category… More actors of color took home Emmys… than ever before:

Judge Greg Mathis… was also thrilled to be honored… saying his show is the longest running show featuring an African-American man.. in history!

—>Keep Up! 😉<—

While you’re feeling all “giddy” with light hearted laughter… These shows GO DEEP into politics… & REAL LIFE issues…

‘Roseanne’ on abc is back! The rebooted sitcom… reflects the current day Conner family….surprising changes… controversial issues…

economic struggles…

and all…

Yep, They’re on a roll folks… “Roseanne” premiered to HUGE ratings.

The show kicks off… focusing on a squabble between Roseanne and her sister Jackie.

Roseanne is down with TRUMP on the show…

( no matter what…)while her sister Jackie… (Laurie Metcalf) defends her own liberalism.

Jackie is horrified about her sisters political position.

She is visibly upset about Hilliary not leading America…

Smart… real smart… The new version of this show opens… with the very issue that split LOTS of American families in half…in REAL LIFE!

The sisters.. who used to always be together through thick & thin had not seen each other… or spoken in a really long time.

“Roseanne” deals with major issues…that clearly demonstrate hardships… and problems with working class… and low income people!

PAY ATTENTION FOLKS!!!

We’re talking…class struggles, health care, unemployment, gender identity, family separation while loved ones serve abroad with armed forces… and a whole lot of other issues…with blended families.

Roseanne & Dan have got grand kids now… a teenage girl going through all the usual mood swings, and teen drama… and a gender-fluid grandson… who loves bright colors.. and wearing a skirt or dress from time to time… he’s happy with life… and loves his clothing choices…

His mother, (Darlene, played by Sara Gilbert… says he’s just exploring right now…

His grandpa ( Dan, played by John Goodman helps him explore edgier things.. into his glitter loving life… like…a pocket knife… basketball 🏀 and other stuff like that.

Another BIG REVEAL is that Darlene, ( Sara Gilbert), has lost her job… and is back in the Connor home… with her kids…

Becky’s there too… and shocked the family with a bold plan… to earn money to pay for mounting bills.. and hopefully get a place of her own.

D.J’s back from serving in the military, and cares for his little girl 👧🏽… a bubbly African-American girl… whose face lights up… when she sees

“Grandma Rose..” (the loving nickname she calls the matriarch of the Connor family.)

Roseanne Conner… is STILL the opinionated, brash but lovable matriarch of the blue-collar family.

The chemistry with all the actors is still as great as I remember. It feels genuine with their interactions…

The show paints a very realistic portrait … of exactly how you could imagine the family turning out… in these days and times…

I watched it… nodding my head up and down… remembering the personalities of the characters I watched all those years…

Yep, yep… It’s all working together… It all makes sense… “I get it!”

Roseanne has always been a very smart comic & producer. She’s clever… calculating and pretty slick!

She knows how to push the envelope.

She knows -exactly- what to do to grab America’s attention…..

and RUN WITH IT!

She never plays it safe… she’s always been cutting edge… never afraid to take risks. Her subject matter sparks interest.. and dialogue… The perfect equation for RATINGS SUCCESS!

Roseanne has gone on record basically saying… people can always agree to disagree…

( and….there-eeee ya go!) It’s all on with the show… and you betcha people are gonna keep watching to see what hot ♨️button 🕹issues..the Connor family is going to be dealing with next.

Oh! and by the way… the show has ALREADY been renewed for a second season.

“Roseanne” airs on Tuesday’s on ABC 8/7c

Will & Grace.. is another successful re-boot. This show… (which was also one of my favorites…) has been reinvented for current political times…with anti-Trump commentary from time to time….

The Will & Grace revival reunites original stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes.

In addition to winning 16 Emmys, (including Outstanding Comedy Series in 2000), “Will and Grace” is credited with paving the way for LGBT characters on TV, featuring the first openly gay lead characters on a primetime network series.

Ultimately… the comedy is a show about TRUE friendship between the four main characters… wowza! They’ve had some hilarious adventures over the years! Sure… there’s political stuff… and other important issues in the world… as one of the stars of the show was quoted as saying. “It’s a little bit of everything!”

Everything that results in BIG ratings… and a devoted audience….(check!)

**** Update! ****

NBC has now ordered an 18-episode third season for fall 2019. This will be the multi-camera comedy’s 11th season overall…including its original eight-season run on NBC.

And we can always count on “Blackish” (also on ABC)

for a great lessons on racial tolerance… black history… and other issues… from the African American perspective…

“Blackish” is now in it’s fourth successful season. The popular comedy stars ⭐️Anthony Anderson…as the father of the family,(Dre)and ⭐️ Tracee Ellis Ross… as the mother

( Rainbow). The show also stars Marcus Scribner as Andre (“Junior”) Johnson Jr. , Miles Brown as Jack Johnson, Marsai Martin as Diane Johnson, Peter MacKenzie as Leslie Stevens, Deon Cole, as Charlie Telphy, Jennifer Lewis as Ruby Johnson, and Laurence Fishburne as Earl “Pop’s” Johnson

Can I just say how proud I am of this show! 👍🏽 I can always get a great laugh… and satisfaction in my soul… that someone… somewhere… just had an eye 👁 opening “Ah-ha” moment… and learned something TRUE… that they wouldn’t know otherwise…

🗣***Shout out*** to ALL shows that not only ENTERTAIN…but educate… and motivate different races… cultures…and socio-economic circles..to have a better understanding of each other…

This show goes deep! The Producers aren’t afraid to take on touchy subjects either…

In the end… I always take a deep breath… and go… “yeah, that was good dd

The single camera sitcom centers on an upper middle class African-American family… and life in the suburbs.

(Dre), struggles with finding his cultural identity… raising his kids in a white neighborhood.

“Blackish” airs on ABC,

Tuesday’s 9/8 c

This AWARD WINNING show… is the BRILLIANT creation of show runner Kenya Barris… An alumnus 👨🏽‍🎓 of Clark-Atlanta University!!!

“Blackish” has done so well… that the Johnson family’s eldest daughter has left to nest to star ⭐️ in her very own spin-off…

New college kid “Zoey” ( played by Yara Shahidi), is taking her first steps into the real world…🌍 in college.

“Grown-ish” explores the modern day transition into adulthood… and all the other things…that come along with the “rites of passage..into womanhood.”

“Grownish” airs on Wednesday’s 7/8 Central on Freeform

A sista had to be QUICK! Shows were selling out left… and right… I was trying to get in on the early previews Thursday…. but I ended up having to come back on Friday…

****It was all good!!!**** Definitely worth the wait!!!

In the magical wonders of 4DX… I soared above the beautiful WAKANDA country side….the ocean… war battle zones…

The 4DX choreography was amazing…

It definitely takes the movie-going experience up SEVERAL notches!

To see all those brilliant designs…. and color palates… was visually stimulating!

The set designs… and technology used in this production #priceless! What a way to introduce a #powerful #Black #Superhero to the WORLD!!!! 🌎

A historic moment in cinema history indeed!!! Was the world ready tho???

****👉🏽 You betcha‼️👈🏽***

Oh yessss….The excitement had been building for weeks!!!

This movie LIVED UP to every bit of the HYPE too…

Writer-Director Ryan Coogler….. YOU DID THAT!!!! 👍🏽👍🏽

The 31-year-old writer-director created an impressive storyline… culturally strong… 💪🏽 with respect to our motherland of Africa… the ancestors…and rich traditions.

Here’s something else I L♥️VED… women were large…and in charge around WAKANDA!

BOLD! BRAVE! and BEAUTIFUL!!!!

#WomenWarriorsRock!👊🏽

I felt tremendous pride in watching every moment unfold…

I couldn’t WAIT to meet this powerful Superhero on the BIG SCREEN!

He was brilliant…

A warrior…

A modern day man…

An African King! 👑

He was disciplined… strong…and BLACK! ✊🏽

A chance for young African American children… to see a POSITIVE image of a man… standing TALL… walking proudly… with his pants UP… and fighting for FREEDOM & JUSTICE!

It’s the way of WAKANDA… The Kingdom has come!

Coogler RE-DEFINED superhero…in 2018… He proved to the world that Black stories DO matter!!!

He produces a powerful image… that all races & creeds will admire… and root on!!!!

🖤🖤🖤GO BLACK PANTHER..GO!!! 🐾🐾🖤🖤

The film 🎥 developed from a screenplay by Coogler…and Joe Robert Cole…

The outstanding cinematography was handled by Rachel Morrison..

Coogler is getting BIG TIME notoriety after this project… but this guy is already a true pro!

He’s taken the helm of several other movies… including Fruitvale Station, and Creed….

Uh-huh… We know…

A young man… doing it… and doing it… and doing it RIGHT!!!

And what about that incredible cast…. They were superb!!!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Black Panther 🐾 stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa / Black Panther, with Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Einston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis

“Black Panther” is a 2018 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character…

Can we talk fashion now ?

The costume designs in the movie… are stunning!!!

Wakandans honor their ancestors with their clothing…as well as maintain social order.

Black Panther’s costume designer, Ruth Carter,

said she kept four words on her vision board as she designed: Beautiful! Positive! Forward! Colorful!

Her vision for Wakandan dress draws from traditional and contemporary African fashion..

Carter’s team of buyers & designers and buyers… went searching EVERYWHERE for the right fashion looks…

Costumes were created from hand-dyeing, and beading techniques of the Tuareg, Zulu, Maasai, Himba, and Dinka…

They were inspired by designers around the world… and selected the FINEST ideas for robes, headdresses….

and unique jewelry pieces…

Carter says she wanted to show the world the BEAUTY of tribal dress… in a very modern style…

By the way… Ruth Carter has had 30 years of movie experience…and two Oscar nominations! Just to name a few more of her major projects…

Carter also worked on Spike Lee’s Malcolm X…School Daze…and Amistad….

But wait…. there’s more…

She also created fashion for John Singleton’s Rosewood…Ava DuVernay’s Selma, and the 2016 TV series “Roots.”

While we’re talking fashion… Can I just say people were SHARP coming to see this movie!

Vivid African patterns… and traditional clothes were quite impressive to see…

#ItWasABeautifulThing!🙌🏽🙌🏻🙌🏽🙌🙌🏿🙌🏽

I saw faces of ALL races packing out theaters!!!

I saw buses and limousines arrive… Carpools of families & friends… all dressed to impress…

There were sign-in tables for professional organizations and groups to pick up tickets… and keepsake items to remember this event…

Quite frankly…. I’ve NEVER seen anything “this” big-of-a-deal at the movies……… EVER!!!!

I kept hearing the most glorious words: Sold out… Sold out… 😐 sorry… we’re sold out!

Now… 👉🏽Back to the movie 🎥 plot…

“T’Challa” returns home as king of WAKANDA…but finds his sovereignty challenged by a long-time adversary…

There’s a MAJOR conflict…with MAJOR consequences… and CHAOS!!! 👀

The film was produced by Marvel Studios… and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures….

If you haven’t seen the movie yet…Make sure you stay in your seat..💺 through ALL of the credits…

**** ALL of THEM!!!*** Don’t leave until the screen goes black… and the house lights come on…

I just don’t want you to miss some key things… you might want to know for later! 😉

I certainly enjoyed this film… and I know you will too… This movie… is a GAME CHANGER!!!! And for that… I say:

Yeah Baby! Yeah!!!! 👊🏽ItsAboutTime‼️🕰

Upgrade your Moviegoing 🎥Experience… and see DOWNSIZING… It’s a TALL tale… about some very interesting Lil’ folks! 👫👭👫👭folks!!!

When scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall as a solution to overpopulation, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.

This movie is truly an adventure! Are you ready??

It “feels” like a lot of things… At first… you’ll think: documentary… then a piece from a show like 60 minutes… and then an

info-mercial … ohh oh whoop! there it is…sci- fi comedy… (which is cute… 🙆🏽‍♀️) –>next comes drama… and finally….Wait for it…. wait for it… you’ll know it’s coming… but you’ll be surprised all the same… one of the “sweetest love stories…” 💕💏💕

You’ll say awwww…..😍😘🤗 then bust out with bwaaahhh!!! Wooo!!hahahaaaa!!!! 😆🤣😂 Well alrighty then… let’s set up a quick outline for ya…

…. And the story goes a little something like this….

The great new hope for our planet is downsizing.

It’s great for the environment…and a major step to resolve over population problems..

👉🏽 Keep in mind… this is a **permanent** procedure that not only shrinks human bodies, but footprints 👣 …as well as the cost of living.

This BOLD & BRAVE science experiment… from Norwegian scientists creates a whole new class of people who have opted to “go small” — and the world 🌎 paves the way for them to have a new life!!!

There ar

where everyone can afford a dream house….

I’m talking the MEGA MANSION of your dreams.. worth MILLIONS!!! 💰💰💰💰— with all the perks.. and amenities your heart desires…. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Keep in mind now… to get this… all you have to do… is shrink yourself down to 5 inches tall! And once you do it……… There.is.no.turning.back!!!! 🤨

A hardworking… and good natured working class guy named “Paul” — does all he can ~crunching~ the numbers with his personal budget… to improve his quality of life…

Soooo…. He and his wife go searching for their “Dream Home..” 🏠Through the process… he watches carefully how her eyes 👁👁 light up… with the beautiful brand new homes…

***ALL HE WANTS TO DO….***

IS… MAKE HER HAPPY! 😃 Whelp…Paul ( Matt Damon) and his wife, Audrey (Kristen Wiig), decide to take the plunge and ship off to Leisureland, one of the exclusive communities.

Goodbye stress! 👋🏽 …. or Not???? Go quickly into the closet theatre you can to see how this saga unfolds…

Kristen Wiig is just naturally funny in everything she does!!! 😆 —-> but this time… her part is really gonna surprise you!!! .. When I see billboards up around town… I smile… and say GEE WIZ!what a MOVIE!!!

I was all into this movie! –Geeked!!!– I picked up souvenirs ….and everything …

*** How do you like my shrunken (Paul), Matt Damon cookies????

-LOL!- 😄

This is one of my FAVORITE movies of the year!!! I was sitting there watching it going… oh my! I can not believe this!!! Lolz!!! 😲

The adventures you’ll experience in this roller coaster ride of a lifestyle change….is nothing short of AMAZING!!!

Hong Chau. Remember that name! Her performance in this film… is a game changer!!! She is ~truly~ a force to be reckoned with!!!

Hong… who is from New Orleans…says she had to audition SEVERAL times to snag this role… and patiently wait a good while… before she found out that YES!!! She got the part!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌

In “DOWNSIZING” —>This little lady walks softly… but carries a big stick!

Or…should I say she ~walks on a big stick…. ( you’ll get that… when you see the movie… ) —> you know I have to tease it!!! But trust and believe… it’s all VERY intriguing…

You just gotta see Hong in action!!!! ******* whoa!!!!😯😲😇******

She’s getting nominations for her performance left & right!!! Well deserved too!!!

DOWNSIZING has been rapidly moving up the food chain… as far as great movies go…. In fact…It’s being touted as one of the BEST movies of the year!!!

—> With my two thumbs up… I say YesSsS!!!! 👍🏽👍🏽

This science fiction comedy-drama… is directed by Alexander Payne…and written by Payne and Jim Taylor.

Downsizing Stars Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig,
Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau , Neil Patrick Har
Sudeikis, Niecey Nash

Don’t miss this y’all… I can ~guarantee~ you’ve never seen ANYTHING like it… and you’re going to want to talk about it… as soon as you leave the theaters!

askkkkk

The REST of your Life can be the BEST of your life!!!Anybody over 60… is “Just Getting Started!!!”

Life after retirement… is ALL that for this crew!

There are parties galore! Folks are grown and sexy… and if its not one thing… it’s another!!!

It’s all good though… especially if you’re Morgan Freeman’s character… ( Duke Diver)

Diver is living the “high life” managing a luxurious resort in sunny… Palm Springs, California! 🌴☀️

He soon faces competition from Leo ( Tommy Lee Jones), a former military man who likes the same woman that Duke is interested in. ( Rene Russo)

Diver’s past suddenly catches up with him, he must put aside his differences and reluctantly team up with Leo to stop whoever is trying to kill him.

Chivalry…. and Rivalry…. and a fair damsel in the middle of it all… but is that ALL to this sweet story???

Absolutely NOT! There’s MORE jealousy… mystery… drama… vengeful attacks…and lots of action!

Seems to me… that the “HIGH SCHOOL” concept of the insiders vs the outsiders… and the privilege of being with the “in crowd” follows socially conscious folks… all the days of life!

There is plenty of personality and style with this mature crowd… and you’ve never seen senior citizens look BETTER !!!

Rene Russo & Cheryl Lee Ralph have aged like fine wine 🍷 and remind us all… once again… that age is just a number! They’re gorgeous!

I got a real kick out of watching this movie… and told Director Ron Shelton… (who is also the writer/director of Tin Cup and Bull Durham), that this new comedy would be a HIT with my mom’s bridge club members and exercise group!!!!

The ladies enjoy going out to the movies… and would be delighted!!!

I was hrilled to attend the premiere…

and left the theater thinking….

I’m so GLAD they made this movie!!!

These are seasoned actors we know… and love…❤️ who deserve a chance to be featured in a good story!

I left the theater thinking 💭… I can’t wait for other people to see it! Young adults…seniors…middle aged folks…***EVERYBODY*** with a “wicked” sense of humor… 😂😱 … and mature enough to handle the subject matter…

I mean… who doesn’t want a good laugh….😂—-> especially when it’s not like your ((( air quotes with fingers…))) TYPICAL slap stick humor… 🤪

With ageism being a hot button issue in Hollywood right now… this movie is a great reminder… that there are **LOTS** of sensational stories out there… where older performers can be in the spotlight and SHINE!!!!

A good story… is just a GOOD STORY RIGHT???

Let’s hope that film makers 🎥 create more good material for diverse audiences… ((including mature performers)))… who CAN attract folks to fill seats in theaters… rally groups of their friends to see these films over… and over again…

-and- buy TONS of concessions…🍿🍫🍬🍟🍔🍕🥤 in theatres… and even purchase movies on DVD when they come out…

Movie Goers in their GOLDEN YEARS… have accumulated lots of GOLDEN COINS to spend on what they like….. and I’d say… they’d be proud to spend those shillings on projects featuring people who look JUST LIKE THEM!!!

Get the picture???? Good!!!! 👍🏽

Go and see… It’s Cool! 😎 ~ Evette Dabney

Gary Oldman SHINES ✨BRIGHT ✨ in “DARKEST HOUR

The DARKEST HOUR is set in London, 1940…during the beginning of World War II. the ~NEW~ British Prime Minister…Winston Churchill urges parliament not to negotiate with Adolf Hitler…

Well…. As a person who values history so much… I felt as though a magic spell 💫was cast… history books opened…📖… the clock turned back… 🕰 and HISTORY played out… (again), on the BIG SCREEN…This time…we could see what REALLY went down.. 👀 in the days..and the seconds… leading up into WORLD WAR ll… Gary Oldman gives what I believe is his FINEST performance EVER!!! We’re talking OSCAR WORTHY FOLKS!!! He’s scored a GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATION…. and SAG nomination ….. this far!You must know… that Gary Oldman went over… and beyond to get a complete understanding of the prime minister. He read biographies…carefully watched historic film footage, visited Churchill’s home at Blenheim Palace, and spoke to family members… 👋🏽 Hey Everybody… HE. NAILED.IT‼️ I thoroughly enjoyed watching his performance!!!I was absolutely mesmerized watching him in action… How did he do it?! I’ve watched enough historic footage in documentaries…and so forth… to realize he truly captured the SOUL and SPIRIT of this powerful man!He was transformed into the historic Icon … with an extensive make-up job..by a legendary makeup artist …and prosthetics… ((( we’ll get back tothis incredible makeover in a minute! ☝🏽))
Foes
scenes… Extremely frustrated…. Churchill stated: “How many more dictators must be wooed, appeased, given immense privileges before we learn?”

N

p
o character…Oldman brought the house down…. and the crowd went silent….. when he shouted:

**********************************

You can NOT reason with a TIGER 🐅 when your head is in its mouth!”
*******
br>This he
pivotal scene that changed the course of history!

Oldman makes us feel the tension…. as he struggled over the best move..

Should he negotiate with Nazi Germany

-or- lead his nation into war against Adolf Hitler…despite the British and Allied troops cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk.

Imagine the stress he must have felt…

We literally witness something inside the prime minister…. snap 💥and his power within is restored… and he established his authority…. once…. and for ALL!

Now

!

He never.. ever

let his cast members see him…

without full make up while filming…

He’d arrive on set early and endure

4 hours in the make-up chair…It took

6 months to get the process down pat… and by the

way..wore the makeup about 61 times…

when all was said and done… and the movie wrapped .. Gary spent 200 hours in the make-up chair! And can we also add in…all the extensive speeches… he had

to perfect… in Churchill’s slightly slurred

speech…

**** TALK ABOUT KEEPING IT REAL!!!****

When Gary decided to take on this

role… he told the director EXACTLY who

he wanted to do MAKEUP….

There was just one small

Problem… make up Kazuhiro Tsuji was retired… but living in Los Angeles…The production company searched
</str
the stars aligned…
🌟🌟🌟🌟The Crew convinced him to come out of retirement… and take on the project!

Special prosthetics.. created from silicone rubber…were applied to the entire face except…for Oldman’s forehead and lips…

He needed that bit of flexibility for facial expressions.

A foam bodysuit was constructed to add extra weight to his slight frame…

At this point in life… Oldman felt it was too risky for his health… to gain the extra pounds so quickly…

Last but not least…Oldman…had his head completely shaved so a wig…and hairpieces could be added.

Hopefully…Oldman’s efforts will be paid off in GOLD..

OSCAR GOLD… and many other deserving awards…

He was just nominated for a Golden Globe… and SAG Award.

There will surely be other nominations to come! 👍🏽

Word on the street… is that Oldman has emerged as an OSCAR front-runner for the BEST ACTOR award…

Those TOP HONORS.. will be handed out at the 90th Academy Awards on March 4.

Oldman is joined by an outstanding cast to re-Live these incredible moments…

Dire
toric biopic…

Lily James (BabyDriver/“Cinderella ”) as secretary Elizabeth Layton; Kristin Scott Thomas (“The English Patient”) as wife Clementine; Ronald Pickup (“The Mission”) as predecessor Neville Chamberlain; and Ben Mendelsohn (“Bloodline”) as King George VI
