I think this has been forwarded me to about 20 bazillion times in 2 hours, and I still can’t get enough of it. Can’t wait. Can’t wait… Have a good weekend!
‘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!
And you know I yelled when I saw the Ali tribute shot…
Malcolm X, Do the Right Thing, Coming to America…Black Panther is in the pantheon of great black films, immediately. So what can I say that hasn’t been hot taked to death already? I picked a few things… Stakes – Yes, I’m going to use ‘the Dark Knight’ as one of the best examples, but it’s […]
Another rotation around the sun nearly complete. I’ve lived long enough to exist in Trump’s America. Hooray… Nearly all of us in life, will experience some personal and professional setbacks that screws up our plans. I’ve lost more than one job, not from being fired but because the company as a whole went bankrupt. […]
CHRIS: And here to present the next two awards, here is Academy Award nominee Emma Stone, and the Associate Producer of ‘Trojan War,’ Malik Aziz! (audience applause as they take the stage) EMMA: An outlaw trying to survive in a room of seven Hateful men. A woman supporting and coming to grips with her husband’s […]
I don’t know who/if there’s a A-list movie or TV star in this cast, but I’ll be damned if between the writing and the cast this hasn’t been an above average SNL season. Consistently good at ‘raising the stakes’ on the skits; and it seems like they’ve been more willing than they have in recent […]
No song this weekend. I haven’t made this announcement here yet but… Our 30 for 30 ‘Trojan War’ is now available on iTunes, Amazon, and Netflix. For those of you outside the U.S. (or without cable), you can watch our film anytime and nearly anywhere you please. That’s your weekend homework, enjoy!
So ‘Trojan War’ is done and a living product now, officially. It’s been a great ride, a ton of memories I’ll never forget, chief among them the outpouring of support. I love my people. In every possible way that statement can be interpreted. Beyond the superficial links between us, that sense of ‘take care of […]
Overwhelmed. Aaron and I have both watched ‘Trojan War’ repeatedly before tonight; there was a ‘USC premiere’ and a ‘Hollywood premiere’ last week, so we both felt good about how the ‘core demographic’ would react. But still… This week, and today especially, the sheer number of you who reposted, retweeted, and otherwise spread the word […]
