  • ONLY FOR THE LOVERS, THE LUSTERS AND THE SOON TO BE LOVERS.
  • IT MAKES FOR A GOOD SUSPENSE MOVIE; EVEN THOUGH, IT WAS PANNED BY SOME MEDIA OUTLETS. I REALLY LIKED (SPOILER ALERT), HOW A. STEEL CAME INTO HER OWN AS A WOMAN AND WIFE. YOU REALLY SEE HER GROW UP FROM THE FIRST MOVIE TO THIS FINAL ONE. 
  • CHRISTIAN BECAME MORE RELAXED, RELATABLE AND SUPPORTIVE. THAT MRS. ROBINSON STILL HAS A HOLD ON HIM. 
  • I WANTED THE AUTHOR TO DIVE DEEPER INTO THE MYSTIC HOLD THAT MRS. ROBINSON HAS ON CHRISTIAN. THERE IS A LOT MORE TO THAT STORY. 
  • I WANTED TO ALSO SEE MORE OF CHRISTIANS CHILDHOOD. THERE REALLY NEEDS TO BE MORE FILMS AND OR BOOKS TO EXPLORE THIS DYNAMIC. 
  • A LOT OF KIDS WHO GROW UP IN FOSTER CARE CAN GO EITHER WAY IN LIFE. IT WAS NICE OF THE FILM SHOW WHAT CAN HAPPEN IF YOU ARE CHOSEN BY THE WRONG FAMILY. 
  • MORAL OF THE STORY: WE NEED MORE 50 SHADES OF GREY AND MORE CHRISTIAN GREY.

Date I saw the movie: May 2017

REVIEW:

  • The movie was filmed in Mobile and Fairhope, Alabama.
  • Original release date was 2/24/2017
  • BOX OFFICE STATS: What amazing about the statistics below is the sheer enthusiasm about the content of the film. The budget was only 5 million dollars, but the movie made over two hundred and fifty million before it’s one year anniversary release.
  • There is a parents guide to the film as well.

  • All I can say is: I was not ready for what my eyes watched.
  • As kids you hear stories from older African Americans about not going in certain places for many reasons.
  • All I can say is watch the movie to see what I mean.
  • I was not prepared for this movie.
  • Mr. Peel did an excellent job. 🌺

A fashionable Hero Movie Review: Free State of Jones

Tonight I went to see a movie I was keenly interested in due to my family heritage of growing up in a creole family and learning about our heritage. In New Orleans, you know that if you live in a certain neighborhood you are creole. The 7th ward is that neighborhood. My mothers side of the family the Baziles and my grandfathers side the Uptown Taylors were fair or light complexion people who were proud of their blackness and creole looks. 

The free state of jones, is a movie that is intermixed with color, race, class, civil war and identity. It’s a war of the poor versus the rich, black versus white, black working with white, etc. The movie was well written. The main characters were well played by Matthew McConaughey (Newt Knight), Gugu MBatha- Raw (Rachel),  Mahershala Ali (Moses), Kerri Russell (Serena Knight), Christopher Berry Shane (Jasper, Newt’s close friend), etc. 

What struck me is the fact that I knew absolutely nothing about this renegade robin hood of men and women. These were heros who fought off the Confederate hate loving Mississippi soilders during and after the American civil war. I have downloaded the audible book of the same name to read and get a closer feeling of the story beyond the movie. The next chapter to explore is the aftermath of the lives of these characters after the war ended, but during the period of Jim Crow to now. Vicky Bynum wrote The Free State of Jones

Through research of articles and looking up the family trees of Newt Knight, Rachel, and Serena, you find a tangled web of life. It is a fascinating story. It’s rare that you read, hear of, or see a movie about a white man fighting against other white men so strongly against the civil war, as Newt Knight did. He wasn’t without flaws, but who is! If you haven’t seen this movie, please do so!
