Notorious

Went to a screening for the new Notorious B.I.G. flick (In movie theaters this Friday)..
No pics this time.. I was sitting few rows back from Sharon Stone and I didn’t want her to think I was taking pictures of her…

The filming and color was lacking but the content and story telling was on point, how could it not be with a story like Biggie’s. The film conveyed real moments of friendship, the cost of fame, the motivation of his hustle and the so called beef between west coast and east coast rap at the time.

I stayed till the end and heard the Q&A with George Tillman Jr the Director, Naturi Naughton who played Lil Kim and Derek Luke who played Puff.  They said for the movie they really tired to stay as true to all the details and places of how things happened during in Biggie’s life.  If your a fan of Hip Hop or a fan of B.I.G. it’s a def must see.

Gonna be spinning a Biggie set tonight at Winstons. Come through if your in the area.

SlumDog Millionaire

Got an advanced copy of SlumDog Millionaire…  SlumDog is a mix of two movies I really like Usual Suspects and City of God.  If you like these two movies you’ll like SlumDog Millionaire…

It’s a raw look into life growing up as a kid in Mumbai. Have to add that there is a few songs in the soundtracks from M.I.A..

The Kid Stays in the Picture

  • Posted on: December 17th, 2008
  • Posted in: Updates

“The Kid Stays in the Picture” is a Documentary about legendary Paramount producer Robert Evans.. The film is a NPR slide show type of movie with Robert Evans narrating it. It’s an amazing look into his life and how he furthered it through ‘Luck’.. “Luck is where opportunity meets preparation.”

Robert Evans went from selling ladies pants with his brother to being the head guy at Paramount studios.. Robert Evans was a visionary, icon of his time, dreamer, gangster, pimp playa,.. This is guy produced the God Father… nuff said..

It’s an inspirational film only to be worthy of a gangster loc made by Oliver Peoples..
