In about an hour, I am going with a friend of mine to the movies. There are quite a few to choose from - 27 Dresses, The Bucket List, PS- I Love You, Atonement, Juno, Mad Money and a few others that I haven't seen yet. They all seem pretty interesting however, we are going to see First Sunday! Now for those of you don't know which movie this is, it's the one with with Ice Cube, Katt Williams and Tracy Morgan where they set out to rob a church. How sacreligious!!
Sometimes it's easy to pick what movie to see - you know the must-sees; for me something like The Great Debaters or American Gangster. But there are other times when there are quite a few decent enough movies showing that I feel warrant me spending $12.50, yes it's $12.50 out here in LA - and so then you have to go to the secondary reasons like what mood am I in, what does the other person want to see, who's in it, etc.
I apologize in advance for saying this, but I have never been one for going to see movies with black characters in them just because they are black. I don't go to see movies with white characters in it just because they are white either for that matter. I want to support black enterprise too but it still needs to be something of value. However, tonight I feel like laughing and based on the characters in this movie and based on the trailers that I have seen, this one seems to fit the bill. Yes, I know it's going to be silly and yes I know it won't be the most intriguing plot ever but that's exactly what I'm looking for. All I have to do is look at Katt Williams with that perm in his hair and I want to bust out laughing :) LOL!!!
Now if he was coming out in a psychological thriller of some sort, I'd have to guess that I would have to pass. Tonight though, I am putting on my loose pair of jeans 'cause I know that I am going to be laughing really hard and coming on the heels of my outing on Tuesday night, I'm definitely ready for that!
So I went to the movie and I ended up paying $15.50 because the showing that we went to was in the Director's Hall where they have assigned seating...overrated!!! The movie was funny...but ahhh, not worth that much....wait for the DVD! Actually Tracy Morgan's character stole the show!
I gave my best...
