It hurts my heart to see how revolting we as a human race have become. We’ve really done ourselves a horrid job at bringing up our youth in a place of so little love, so little appreciation and so little education of how we ought really to live. Yes it could be a cruel world, hideous and scandalous at times but we should not become that which we loathe, instead we should show others that have become lost along the way, warmth, directions and friendship. 

We’ve had some wonderfully unique and beautiful people to have passed time here and teach us really how to live and love but lately it seems that all these magnificent gifts are becoming lost. Now big and small, young and old have limited their extension of kindness and respect and the few that are determined to express kindness are seen as a nut-job.

Be extraordinary!

Why not stand out from the crowd? What’s so wonderful at being a clone anyway? Don’t assimilate to this brainwashed and lost human race. We are only but a small planet in this vast Universe and spending only few moments of this ‘so-called’ life on earth. Live right and live good!

It is beyond me that our society can lift up and celebrate a great soul for their hard-work, commitment and dedication and then 6 months later rip them to pieces because they’re having a bad day! It’s been seen over and over again - and just as we have the right to privacy, the right to tears, the right to anger, the right to being you; they too have EVERY right to be them! Why must we play these mind-games and destroy a person’s psyche because they refuse to fit the mold. 

Its time we raise the spirits of those that are fallen. Everyone deserves love, and cheer and respect. Who are we to judge who is deserving of these boosts? We are all our creator’s children, we are all worthy of bliss and delight. Hold your brothers hands. Kiss your sisters hands. And let us reverse this decrepit spiral that will ultimately drown us all. 


There’s still time to make it right. we must love one another regardless of religion and the colour of skin because love is the key to a better world. Let us set aside our differences and really celebrate and love one another - connect to your higher source - this brings you strength, fulfillment, bliss and courage to do the right thing. 

Bless-up darlings!

From time to time actors get lucky to see their classmates on television or in movies - it’s wonderful to see them transfer and more so succeed at what they love. I’m happy to have met Andrew J. West in my acting class maybe 3 years ago and what stood out for me is not that he was strikingly handsome, but also how exposed he was. He was attentive to what our acting coach had to say and 100% accessible to whatever emotion his character called for - in other words - a born natural. He stars in a 2014 Mystery/Thriller entitled ‘Bipolar’.

Written and directed by Jean Veber and costarring with blonde beauties Emma Bell and Beatrice Rosen, Harry Poole played by West is a disturbing story of a man who suffers from the mental disease bipolar disorder. During his journey black and white classic clips from the films ‘Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ as well as ‘Nosferatu’ are played and the audience takes pity on our main character because he too transforms from Harry to Edward Grey. 

Exceptional acting portrayed by Andrew J. West as he smoothly displays a wide range of emotions and carries the film from beginning till end with a sharing of the deep turmoil spilling out of his mind. A interesting look into alter-egos and how dangerous they can become. Proud of Andy like he were my own brother! Makes for a brilliant night of dark thrilling fun!

Blue Jasmine

Also the winner of 1 Oscar this year; was this sensational film 2013 film written and directed by Woody Allen entitled ‘Blue Jasmine’. Starring the exceptionally talented Aussie actress Cate Blanchett, American funny-man Alec Baldwin, and Sally Hawkins, Andrew Dice Clay to name a few. All came together to help this at times funny, at times depressing and haunting Comedy-Drama to life. Rated PG-13 for some language and sexual content, Allen not only made a killing at the box-office from $18 million USD to $33 million USD but also 39 nominations and 29 other wins at film festivals world-wide. 

Jasmine is lovely, elegant and fragrant but she is quite troubled and on a down-ward spiral of ruin; hence the title ‘Blue Jasmine’ - picture perfect and self-explanatory. The audience is thoroughly captivated by the back-story of elegance, opulence and the present day humiliation, yearning and pain that our main character faces and although somewhat comical at times viewers realize that it’s a much more serious feat at hand and that everyone’s breaking point is different. One person can withstand a storm and another could unravel as fragile plants do in a storm. 

Cate Blanchett shines 100 times over and is magnificent to watch. A beautiful film; wordy as Woody Allen films usually are and quite tragic when understanding the fine line we humans walk with mental health and instability in a life that is ever so unpredictable.


Now we’re present day again with our choice of movie viewing; I finally catch the Oscar nominated ‘Her’ written and directed by Spike Jonze; whom you may remember from ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ and ‘Being John Malkovich’. Starring in this Romantic/Sci-Fi/Drama was none other than the talented and wonderfully sensitive actor Joaquin Phoenix as well as the vulnerable and gentle Amy Adams. Scarlett Johansson was most delightful and charming voice for an operating system that you could ever imagine. 

This film was quite poetic; not only with several examples of love letters recited throughout but also high on communication and emotional bonding between our main characters. A Love Story minus the usual physical elements that tend to sometimes overwhelm and complicate situations - because what everyone wants really is to be loved inside out and also have someone to love the same. This film encapsulates that with a futuristic twist!

With an estimated budget of $23 million USD and a slim climb at the box-office of $25 million USD. Production companies didn’t let that worry them too much because this feature with a run-time of 126 minutes was chosen by the Film Society of the Lincoln Center as a opening spot for the prestigious New York Film Festival in 2013!

62 nominations, 51 wins and winner of an Oscar at the last Academy Awards festival, ‘Her’ was a fine piece of work that I believe will be talked about in many years to come!

Blue Moon

**Blue Moon .. you heard me saying a prayer for ... someone I really care for...~ by 3 Lovely Ladies known as the Boswell Sisters - the Original singers of 'Blue Moon'! :D Enjoy!*

Thursday, June 5, 2014


We’re taking it back to 1973, with a whole lot of gun-slinging and boob-flying action for your viewing entertainment! Written and Directed by Jack Hill, whom you may remember wrote and directed other successful classics like ‘Foxy Brown’, ‘The Big Bird Cage’ and ‘Spider Baby’ also brought us ‘Coffy’ starring the beautiful black goddess Pam Grier’. 

I love watching films with strong female leads and Pam Grier does a great job at keeping consistent with her character’s wants and needs. She is beautiful, fearless, and also vulnerable enough to make the audience stay with her for the entire story. Booker Bradshaw, Robert DoQui, William Elliott, Allan Arbus, Sid Haig, and John Perak are to name a few of the men that she had to out-smart to save the day. 

This Action/Crime/Thriller even though had a strong female lead still appealed to men’s palettes with its content and sex-appeal. The story was simple enough and well executed but it was highly driven on extreme violence (some of the ways people were killed) and very many sexual connotations. Pam Grier takes wonderful direction though from Jack Hill, who brought an exciting funk-vigilante-black-goddess to life! I’d watch it all over again! Enjoy!

Third World Cop

What a thrilling ride! This 1999 Action/Drama/Thriller was well written and executed with a great message. Crime runs rampant in certain areas of this paradise island but that doesn’t mean its a sore that needs to be ignored. Our main character Capone played by the infamous and celebrated Jamaican actor Paul Campbell realizes just that and runs into the mid of battle to save the day. Written and Directed by Chris Browne who usually works in the camera department, hit gold when making this special film. 

Mark Danvers, Carl Bradshaw, Audrey Reid and others joined in to bring this story to life. With a run-time of 98 minutes, Rated R for strong sexuality, language and drug content and loads of violence you may want to keep the children out of the room for this one. 

Decent story, sincere acting abilities and great commitment as well as camera framing, but our main character Capone seems indestructible as he doesn’t even get hit by a bullet once. Besides the poor budget and the fact that it shows; I think it’s the story that’s most important here. I’d watch it again and enjoy it all over again! Good job Jamaica!

Rid of Me

Watched this one a while back, and even though it was quite morbid and melancholic I felt that it was thought-provoking and relatable for many. We’ve all felt that we had things under control and we’ve all given our hearts and souls to something we believed in. Sometimes though, what we believe in; isn’t exactly made for us. And in order to build ourselves up again we need to break down completely. It’s a process. Written and Directed by James Westby this dark 2011 comedy came across most times as depressing; but we live and we learn right!?

Officially selected at the Tribeca Film Festival, and starring Katie O’Grady, John Keyser, Storm Large, to name a few; this film wasn’t a box-office hit but I imagine a hit with any viewer that has lived with deep pain and learning to discover what is life all over again. 

Just as happiness is a part of life, so is Sadness. They go hand-in-hand and this film shows the clear epitome of that. There is a light at the end of the tunnel though - we must all remember that! Not my cup of tea but thought-provoking enough to stomach it through. 

Working Girl

Been a bit preoccupied lately - but that’s a good thing when you’re out there ‘working towards your dream’ - had the pleasure on my down-time to watch this lovely 1988 classic ‘Working Girl’ written by Kevin Wade and Directed by Mike Nichols. Recommended to me by a lovely lady, this Comedy-Drama-Romance was an ordinary story re-told in a wonderful way. Some of us know what it’s like to be taken advantage of; and some still know what it’s like to feel like your world’s been pulled out from underneath you. 

Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver and Alec Baldwin come together with exceptional comic-timing, passion and commitment to make the audience entranced all of the way. With an estimated budget of $28 million USD they made $64 million USD at the box-office, won an Oscar that year with another 10 wins and 14 nominations. Not bad at all for the usual ‘under-dog’ story told the right way.

Chock-full of hilarious and wise dialogue and a message that will make anyone’s heart soar; it’s a “feel-good” and inspirational movie that’s entertaining  to the max! I’ll leave you with a few quotes, but this is a good one to enjoy on a night you’re feeling a tad bit ‘down in the dumps’.

“Can I get you anything? Coffee? Tea? Me?”

“Sometimes I sing and dance around the house in my underwear. Doesn’t make me Madonna. Never will.”

“You want another answer, ask another girl.”

“Dress shabbily, they notice the dress. Dress impeccably, they notice the woman - Coco Chanel!”

“The earth moved. The angels wept. The Polaroids are, are, uh…”

“You’re the first woman I’ve seen at one of these things that dresses like a woman, not like a woman thinks a man would dress if he was a woman.”

“Whaddya need speech class for, ya talk fine!”

All of Me
