TWO GIANTS OF BLACK ENTERTAINMENT….A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTING….3RD INSTALLMENT

 

UNIVERSE AND WEAVE IN HARMONY

UNIVERSE AND WEAVE IN HARMONY

This week and weekend has been difficult in the entertainment world.  Issac Hayes and Bernie Mack have passed away.  Their creativity touched our lives in ways we could not have imagined. 

I was terribly shocked when I heard it on the radio about both black men.  Issac Hayes was a part of my youth and growing up in the seventies.  I grew up hearing the theme of Shaft on the television and movie theatres.    My recollection was a drivng theme song that you could sing and enjoy.  There were not as many black television programs on back then.  So that was a part of my youth.

Bernie Mack was and is a part of my son’s youth.  We would sit together and watch Bernie Mack and his television adoptive children go through problems that families go through.  Some of the problems were rediculous…some so funny and hilarious….some cute and sentimental!

Yes,  we must applaud these two steller men who have taken their final bow…and wish all who come in their path  walk in their foot steps- to take up their mantels and promote more entertainment for all.

 

Thank you Bernie Mack.

Thank you Issac Hayes.

Rest in Peace.

1st Sunday with Ice Cube…and Tracey Morgan—2008 Ralph and Norton Duo!!!

 

UNIVERSE AND WEAVE IN HARMONY

UNIVERSE AND WEAVE IN HARMONY

I like to watch a good comedy.  I was shocked! 

 

Truly shocked. 

Tracey Morgan plays a “not so bright”  crime challenged man,  and his counter part…Ice Cube is just as crime challenged as Tracey Morgan.

  HOwever,  things work out in the end …in some type of fairy Tale ending.  They start out to rob the church,  situations get out of hand and circumstances change it all around and they end up saving the day for the Church they planned to rob.  Silly uh?

Also Cube’s baby Mama gets the money she needed– which keeps her from moving ‘DOWN SOUTH’ to her grandmother’s house. 

 So Cube gets to keep contact in with his son. 

 The church does not have to move out of the neigborhood they love and all is right with the world again~~~~~

….But as I said….it was an interesting combination of Tracey as comedian…and Cube a hard core…angry straight man. 

The funniest part of the movie was when they (Cube and Tracey) were sitting in the church during communion and then they ate the “crackers  for communion”  and then they drank…not sissped…drank several cups of communion wine. 

 Tracey explained that he had never been in a church service before (except for a baptism for which he could not participate because he could not swim.

–so he never went back to church again)….so Tracey asks for CHEESE WIZ for the communion crackers.

…such blasphemy!!!!

Oh, my goodness…my mother was laughing so hard….!

So go rent this silly movie!  It might even make you cry at one part.

Good Job Cube…stay away from those “”””ARE WE THERE YET??? “MOVIES—SEEK OUT SOMETHING WITH A PARTNER LIKE  TRACEY—-GOOD STRAIGHT MEN AND COMEDY SIDEKICKS NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE!

TILL NEXT MOVIE REVIEW~~~
