Special night for me at the #arethafranklintribute with my brother @titusoneilwwe and the amazing @yolandaadams . Thank you guys for letting me tag along with you and you’re beautiful/Howard Student (What?!!! DC in the house!) daughter @taylorayannaa . Bright things ahead for this young lady for sure! Also thanks to @tylerperry@tasiasword for taking time to say hello and @davidaugustclothing for making look like a GD Rockstar! And last but not least Aretha! Just ARETHA!! She’s my generation so she’s imbedded in my soul but if you’re just to young, from another country, or whatever the reason may be that you somehow wouldn’t be familiar with her music, I’m begging you to put aside all the crazy shit that’s happening in our world and our country right now and turn on some Aretha Franklin. I promise you won’t regret it. I’m not even a religious person but Aretha makes me wanna go to church! 😂 #riparethafranklin ✌🏼 #dreamchaser
Loved #TheUpside. Its actually a darker take than my favorite #ForeignFilm, #TheIntouchables, but it's still enjoyable, heartwarming, endearing, energetic, charming, and incredibly feel-good funny. Although not exactly perfect, it's a far better movie than what critics are slamming it to be. It does try to fill in more information where the original doesn't, mostly to successful results. Some of where the French film succeeds is its subtlety in its plot points. Interestingly enough, although the THE INTOUCHABLES is lighter in tone, its humor was dark and rather darker than THE UPSIDE. Much like the #FrenchFilm, The Upside features two fantastic performances by its two leads, the time being #KevinHart and #BryanCranston.
Although I love the concept of it (re-doing a previous film or primary idea of a film, it's just one of the many different ways of cinema), #Remakes nowadays rarely ever gets enough love. It’ll always get looked down upon or skeptically judged to compared to the film is based on (sometimes it's the opposite, ala 83’s Scarface). The Upside has an uphill battle with that stigma attached to it, but it has an additional battle that it so happens to be remaking THE INTOUCHABLES, a beloved gigantic French blockbuster, one of the biggest international movies of all time, as well as a cultural phenomenon in France. It's also my favorite foreign movie of all-time, I love that movie so much, saw it multiple times in theaters, I have such an affinity for it. Therefore, the American update to that #FrenchClassic has a certain uphill battle upon me personally.
I’m glad to admit that the American update not only works, but I actually managed to enjoy this movie as much as I do the French original. It manages to be a really good companion piece to the French original. Even if I still more-so like the French original (which I hold dearly, my favorite #foreignfilm), the American remake still holds up pretty well. [1/3]

No good thieves.
Aretha Franklin passed away last August, and the entire world mourned her death as the Queen of Soul. Franklin has one of the most storied careers in all of music. She’s toured the world and became the first female artist to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She won 18 Grammys in her lifetime, including two legacy awards. The accolades on her resume would take hours to dissect, and her influence in the music industry is undeniable. When Franklin passed away, her estate was thrust into a battle with the IRS, who claimed that she owed millions in back taxes. Now, TMZ reports that Franklin’s assets were stolen previous to her passing.
Law enforcement sources tell the media site a criminal probe discovered that someone had been using Aretha’s funds. The exact amount that had been siphoned and used was not disclosed. The original report pertaining to the funds was filed last June, just two months before Franklin passed away. The investigation into Franklin’s funds will continue, but the IRS and legal fees threaten to take whatever money her estate has stored away. Hopefully, law enforcement will catch the thief and help bring a little solace to those handling Franklin’s estate.
