hey peoples! how was your holiday? i think i gained 2 pounds and that friggin cheesecake will be the death of me-UGH! i feel fatter even thinking about it. anyhoo, i hope yours was fab!
now, i was thinking about something...if i could be in a movie...which one would i pick? i tried not to think too hard about it because there are a gazillion movies that i like. sooooooo, the first one i thought of was...
MO' BETTER BLUES
i just think jazz clibs are so sexy. and that daggone bleek gilliam! (bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeep) lawd, hold my mule! this movie had culture, history, talent, family, friends and fighting...but all ended well...and it's not too far from reality. its totally believable!
now, what movie would i NOT want to be in? that would have to be the color purple.
none of the women really had it together. shug was talented and semi-famous...but she was a whore with the nasty woman's disease. sophia was like a welfare mother who did prison time and ended up with a cock eye, and celie was....celie. no explanation needed. then factor in the facts that there was no air conditioning, loads of manual labor and a crap load of kids!?!?! oh, i wouldn't have made it passed age 7. nettie had it the best...but she was no where near her family and she had to go all the way to africa to achieve something. the scene when her and celie were separated is enough to make my eyes bleed. its so heart wrenching!
***WHAT ABOUT YOU? WHAT MOVIE WOULD YOU WANT TO BE IN? AND WHICH ONE WOULD YOU NOT WANT TO BE IN? WHY AND WHY NOT?***
