What he doesn’t know about Symphony is that she harbors secrets that may destroy everything, including their relationship.

I Have Tapped Out

January 11, 2014

dont give upSo after three days of stalking Common and Tika Sumpter, I finally tapped out.  I’m still not giving up, but I’ve decided to concentrate on searching for me a reputable agent, and continue with trying to finish my second screenplay, “TORN”.  I’m just as excited about this one as I am, “SOMETIMES LOVE”.  I already have a general idea who I would like to play in this one too.

No, I have not given up with pursuing Common and Tika, but I have to do it the right way.  As I said before, I cannot picture anyone else playing these roles for Sometimes Love, except Common and Tika, and I have not really thought about the worst-case scenario.  However, I’m moving my focus to obtaining representation.   Wish me luck!

COMMON & TIKA ALL I ASK OF YOU IS TO READ THE FIRST 10-15 PAGES

First, I would like to thank Vince, owner of dURDy Work Multi-Media Graphics for designing my movie poster, he did one hell of a job, and I am so glad I stumbled upon him.  He also designed my website header, so be sure to check him out; magnificent work and reasonable prices.

Second, I want to thank my cousin Sherry, owner of Sherry Designs for creating the trailer for me as well.  She did an excellent job with putting it all together… so THANKS FOR BOTH OF YOU!

If you’re visiting this page, then I hope you are as excited as I am, and you’ve contributed with PERSUADING these two celebrities.  I’ve been working on this script since 2010, and I’ve always envisioned the two of them steaming up the silver screen; two beautiful people.

I took this route because I did not Continue Reading…

Weekend B.O. Dec. 13-15

madeaWeekend B.O. Dec. 13-15 (What Happened To ‘Madea’?) By Sergio

Both The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug and A Madea Christmas did not live up to expectations this holiday movie season.

Smaug was projected to earn something near $82 million, but instead made some $73.7 million this weekend, which is a slight comedown and not a disaster by any means. But it’s below what the first Hobbit movie which earned just under $85 million its first weekend last year. But who’s crying?

However, some people are saying that, stretching out J.R.R. Tolkien’s slim 300 page book into a mammoth, extended three part tentpole movie franchise was obviously too much, especially Continue Reading…

While I haven’t yet personally reviewed the film on this site (I want to see it a second time before doing so), if you read my interview with director Steve McQueen, as well as my September 25 piece on slave movies, titled Despite Success Of ’12 Years A Slave,’ Many Stories Set During The Period Still To Be Told, you’ll know that I was underwhelmed with 12 Years A Slave (I first saw it about a month ago).

However, I certainly don’t despise it. I just feel that praise for it has been excessive.

But if you think I’ve been “anti” 12 Years A Slave, you’re in for a “treat” in S&A film critic fave Armond White’s review of the film, published this afternoon.

Maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise that White didn’t care for the movie; after all, it won’t be the first time that he’s critically-obliterated a film that’s seemingly universally-loved. Continue Reading…

Will Smith had once declared powerfully, “I don’t know what my calling is, but I want to be here for a bigger reason. I strive to be like the greatest people who have ever lived.” It is this constant urge to ‘strive’ and to struggle that has made him one of the most sought after actors in Hollywood. Smith’s inspiring rise to the top in his career only reaffirms the fact that if you are looking for success, you need to have the right mindset to propel you up to the top. You can succeed only when you believe in yourself and your ability to act – like Smith, you need to believe that you are here for “a bigger reason.”

Born to an African American family in West Philadelphia, Smith had a rough childhood after his parents decided to separate when he was thirteen. The divorce however, came through when he was thirty-two. Smith never allowed his family problems to affect him and began his rapping career while he was still in his teens.

As the “The Fresh Prince”, Smith achieved huge success for his hip-hop work and went Continue Reading…
