Film Review: PRECIOUS: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire.

Image
I saw Precious this weekend, on its 3rd weekend and expansion of theaters (only 629 and has so far grossed to almost $15Min its 15 days this week...very impressive considering it only played limited on its opening weekend debut, much like the small expansion, and its small widest release of 629 theater locations) nationwide as it finally was showing in my local theaters. I've been waiting and looking forward to seeing this film since I heard this movie was being filmed and Mariah Carey (my favorite singer) was cast in a small role as Mrs. Weiss. Also, I've read the novel "Push" by Sapphire this movie was based from. Like Oscar's Best Picture winner Slumdog Millionaire, Precious (the lil' Independent film) has been getting tons of standing O's and rave reviews as well as won several Audience Awards in various film festivals such as Sundance, Toronto, and Chicago Film festivals to name a few. So, I've been following this film and got so excited when I f…

Film Review: Michael Jackson's "This Is It"

Image
I saw this MJ documentary recently and thought it was awesome. Michael Jackson was simply the best. He was definitely the ultimate King of Pop  and musical genius. It's still hard to believe he's gone as he looked quite able and healthy on this amazing documentary showing behind the scenes of his sold out "This Is It" tour shows in London, that unfortunately, didn't and will never happen due to his unexpected and tragic death last late June when he was on his final tour rehearsal. It was such a shocking and sad news to hear and read about his unexpected passing. May he rest in Peace.

Here's my mini review of his documentary made into a movie for his fans to see him perform for the last time even in just his combine rehearsal footages as they are enough to see him for the concert series that we will, unfortunately, never see him perform because he has passed on.
