The way post Ramadan 2019 played out, the decision to no longer give up social media this month was made a long time ago. I don’t think any of you would accuse me of arrogance when, in our current state of affairs, I had to think about what I actually have left to give up. […]
Been a little busy as you may have heard, so just now seeing this. I’ve heard every reaction, positive and negative to this film, and in a way, I think everyone is right. My thoughts: First, what I liked. Joaquin is definitely different (enough) to me than what everyone else has done. So that’s a […]
So you know what I’ve been involved with this summer. Now, hear myself and the other mentees talk about the shorts and why we feel attached to them. Enjoy!
Has DC figured it out? It’s starting to figure out DC has figured out its lane… Every movie is its own thing (like most comic books). Some silly, some over the top, some stories great metaphors… I’ve heard about the allusions to Taxi Driver and the King of Comedy for awhile, now that I’m seeing […]
Halle and Lena are about to bring ‘Boomerang’ back, which was an amazing soundtrack, and thus, today’s video (which is an amazing song.) My personal connection to this song runs pretty deep. More than enough time has passed, but I can’t hear this without thinking of the most devastating breakup of my life. Shorty had […]
So, I could have very, very easily been murdered today. I found myself Downtown this afternoon. Not L.A. Live, more the residential neighborhoods. I was wrapping up my affairs as a nearby high school was letting out. One set of boys walking down the street I was on starts shit talking another set of boys […]
Don’t know why it took the Honest Trailer guys so long to get around to this, but it was done well. Give credit where it’s due. Enjoy!
Still buzzed from watching an IMAX print of ‘the Dark Knight’. Tenth anniversary and on a weeknight the place was still packed (well played Warner Brothers.) No film is perfect of course (the ‘Heat’ and ‘Se7en’ influences feel heavier now), but that film is still a quick 2 and a half hour ride. Adapting […]
The comedy stuff I’ve done hasn’t really been consolidated into one piece, until now. My buddy Jeebz likes to edit, so we tried to tone a few of the parts I’ve played over the years into a ‘comedic timing/hit the punchline’ highlight reel. As far as the intro/outro, hand to God, as we were […]
‘Lessons from the Screenplay’ has quickly become my favorite video essay series in breaking down why some films and TV shows work (and some don’t)… Today, Michael Tucker breaks down Killmonger and Black Panther, and to say I was enthused by his thesis is an understatement. Enjoy!
