The Words: My Review on Stolen Truths

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 26 January 2014 at 5:53 pm

The Words movie poster

They say that the truth begins where it ends. This movie ends with Clay, portrayed by Dennis Quaid, saying “At some point you have to choose between Life and fiction; the two are very close but they never touch. They are two very, very, different things.”  The Words make you question which you are watching. Even down to the last-minute you are questioning, not the movie, but yourself. Which plot line do you choose to believe? Read the rest of this entry »

2013 BET Hip Hop Awards

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 15 October 2013 at 8:08 pm

Now, this opening, a mock Inside the Actor’s Studio with James Lipton, simply HILARIOUS.  As an Actor, I feel shamed, yest entertained. lol

Wait… did the camera really tune to Joseline and Stevie J? Ugh! And ummm… did Snoop just tell one of the models that she has a bright future behind her? I mean really? UGH! I am already hating this. UNTIL…

But I love how he is giving props to Kendrick Lamar for waking up the Hip Hop community with that verse. Yeah, no one did it quite like Kendrick.

Of course Kevin Hart would be the first to come out. And he looks so small in front of the cops. lol.  First award…. Read the rest of this entry »

2013 Cast of The Game

Episode 1: Rough Draft & A Trade

Episode 2: Keeping It Moving

Episode 3: Secrets

Episode 4: Keeping Up Appearances


I have to confess….. I am not interested enough to write about this season any further. I straight up and forgot that the show came on last week. And worse, I even forgot that I forgot to watch it until tonight when the reminder came on my TV.  I guess I can watch it…. but at least I don’t have to write about it. At least I can change the channel. So sad…..and I just saw the Sunbeam episode. without Kelly… there are no Sunbeams.


And on that note…. ::: does stretches::

I’m actually on time tonight!!!

Game on Bitches!!!!!!!!

2013 Sunbeams Charity Auction?

Oh wait… there is Tae Heckard!!! But I promise you that I truly miss the Sunbeam meetings. Hell, I miss Kelly & Melanie. . And who is this scrawny white dude next to Bryce? Shit… the fat dude on the other side while we’re at it? Lol.

Ummm can someone please tell me why Angela Simmons is acting on this show. She is AWFUL at acting! Leave that to Vanessa. Lol. Was Diggy the only one gifted with talent? But this back and forth between Angela Simmons and Keira is hilarious. I personally think that the Luther Vandross looking dude should have won it. Lol. I know that you had something to prove to Angela, but I am not spending that much money on a man who lives in the same building as I do. However was I the only one who caught ther Run DMC reference? Jason said, “..that’s that Tougher Than Leather money.” I think I just showed my age. Read the rest of this entry »

Episode 2: Keeping It Moving

Episode 3: Secrets

I’m late… I know. I have a life and The Game doesn’t always make the list of priorities

Game on Bitches!!!!!!!!

Now, this opening scene with Malik’s house warming party is off the chain. I mean really?!!! But I love TeeTee for keeping it real. Lol

I was speaking with a coworker today. I simply HATE The Game these days. It went from a comedy to a drama. I mean, there is NOTHING to like about these characters. I mean, I still kick it with Tasha Mack…but she is the only one who keeps me interested. And the trade of Melanie and Derwin for Bryce and Keira….that was too quick. I mean even the gynecologist warms up her utensils before she shoves them in you. IJS.

It just seems like this show went to hell in a hand basket the minute it came to BET. I don’t think that we brought it back for it to become this. We brought it back for what it was. But that is just my opinion. Read the rest of this entry »

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The way that Rick. Fox. Came from behind the pillow is straight up foul!!!!! That takes ratchet hoe to a whole other level!!!

Game on Bitches!!!!!!!!

Truth be told…. I would run up on Rick. Fox :::does hand gesture:: and he could get it!!! This man gets better looking the older he gets!! That is his black side. Lol. Damn!!! What does a sister have to do to get that? I am not even paying attention to what they are talking about. Wait… did Tasha just call her punnany “Matilda”? really.

Wait, so Keira knows Malik? Ummm… how have we never seen them together until now? Bryce’s face is growing on me. He makes strange faces…..but his body is nice.

In skank news… this vagina toast is over the top and beyond tasteless. Did the writers forget that Jason is married? Read the rest of this entry »

Episode 1: Rough Draft & A Trade


Now I know, that you know, that I know, that you know that there was o way in HELL that I was going to let this season of The Game begin without me having my say on the matter, right? I was in the studio on air last night but I had my DVR set and so here I is….lol. Yes, here I is. :::in my Tasha Mack voice:::

Well, kick off in 5, 4, 3, 2, ……Game on, Bitches!


At the start of the red bottoms walking down the hallway during the intro….. all I can think is. I remember when this used to be a comedy. Wait… is that Chardonnay and Jason on the bathroom floor? Malik and his hoes. Tasha Mack naked in the mirror…..was that Derwin doing pull-ups? He wasn’t that huge last season. Lauren London… ok. So the red bottoms attached to the red bottom was Ciara? How random. Now the fucked u thing about it is how in the hell are you going to remove Melanie from the plot and then keep her as the intro to the show? Just lazy and cruel! Fuck you on behalf of Tia Mowry! Lol Read the rest of this entry »

When Meme-ing Domestic Violence Goes Wrong!

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews, Writer's Block on 1 March 2013 at 2:44 pm

Over the past couple of days I have been home sick with a stomach virus. But nothing, and I mean absolutely NOTHING, has made me so sick to my stomach as this:


Can someone please tell me, since when has domestic violence become the root of jokes? Since when has it become okay for us to meme an act of violence. Bad enough Worldstar Hip-Hop has become synonymous with ratchedness and violence, but now we make jokes about domestic violence?

Now, before I swing my leg completely over this high horse I am going to side-saddle for a moment and touch on the double standards. Yes, Chris Brown did plead guilty to hitting her. So yes, I am all for videos of him getting his ass whooped. What? He was the man who hit a woman ( FOR WHATEVER REASON) and he should be hit back. Now, on the flip side of things…. I wasn’t in the car. Rihanna could have provoked him. But in the end, all I have to go by is her face in the photos and his plea in court. Rest my case. :::swings leg over high horse:: Read the rest of this entry »

L.A. Basketball Wives S2:E5~ Another Damn Wedding?!

Season 1 Recap: Finale aka Everybody Hates Jackie

Episode 1: Jackie aka Victim

Episode 2: Delusions of Grandeur 

Episode 3:

Episode 4:

Episode 5: Another Damn Wedding?!

Okay, So I have been gone for such a long time. I know, I know, I know… but my money came before this blog. I am blogging tonight. I think I have missed 2 episodes. I will let you know. Lol

Let’s Go!

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #BasketballsLostAngels !

Hold up… did Jackie and her dramatic ass pack tennis shoes? Really, Senior Citizen? I would have whooped your ass just because you pulled a stunt like that. They shouldn’t have given me that preview.

Draya and Malaysia go out to lunch together and this is supposed to be about Brooke and Bambi. It is official; Draya is not coming to the wedding. I like the point that Draya is making about Jackie making a mockery of the gays. Jackie is getting married in front of the Gays who cannot get married to one another; great logical point. However, I do think that some gays don’t mind and are not that nitpicky. Read the rest of this entry »

2012 BET Hip Hop Award Cyphers

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 10 October 2012 at 8:45 pm

WARNING: This is the cypher the way that I hear it. I could be getting some words wrong. Hell, next year tell them to enunciate.  Lol. But I think that transcribing the cyphers are a great way to see if these rappers are really SAYING anything. Yeah, it sounds good on a beat, but fool…what did you really SAY? You be the judge….who actually SAID something this year?
