42


20130419-174803.jpg

My love for film is the same as my love for music. When I need an escape, I get lost in my music or head to the local theatre and watch a few movies consecutively. Last week was no different. I had been anxiously anticipating the making of Jackie Robinson’s biopic to be told, and I’m happy 42 was given its blessing by Jackie Robinson’s wife Rachel.

As I was about to write a review, I spotted that one of my instagram followers had posted his review of 42 as a caption for the movie poster of the movie. I absolutely loved his honesty and point of view. I felt his review depicted very well what I felt. So I felt compelled to share his review here on my blog for #FilmFridays!

Everyone meet @tamairiefilms! He’s an independent director himself. Without further ado, welcome DannyBoy to the blogosphere!

Movie Review for Jackie Robinson’s biopic “42”.

By: @TamaIrieFilms
————————

I did not expect much going into the theater to watch 42, but let me tell you, I walked away spellbound! 42 is an awesome film and I recommend you see it. Jackie Robinson’s story is a triumphant story about dreaming big, drive and determination, fighting against oppression, opposition, and indifference to make your mark in this world. The way this was conveyed on screen was moving, frustrating, and rewarding. Granted, if we look at it in the context of race, class and gender, one could find faults with the narrative and representations within the film. The typical argument of the white man saving a person of color, however I don’t feel that’s the case here. It’s accurate that the white man assisted in the fight for Jackie to play baseball with whites, and yes it can be seen as exploitation and a business venture to increase profit and revenue, however the bigger picture is that they integrated the sport and demonstrated unity among the team. Other arguments may say certain scenes in the film inspire sympathy with whites in the film who are pro Jackie Robinson. Watch the film and recognize the definition of the word sympathy and where it derives from and it’s actual meaning. You will have a deeper appreciation for the word sympathy and when it’s used. This doesn’t excuse certain arguments one might find with the film, that’s just how I see it and defend 42.

I like the picture for what it is. There were so many powerful scenes in the film. I don’t want to give them away. Go see for yourself! And don’t be a cheap asshole and get the bootleg! Go see it in the theaters!!!! The actors did an amazing job! Nicole Behaire who plays Mrs. Rachel Robinson is stunning. Harrison Ford, awesome! Chadwick Boseman, excellent! There are so many phrases from the film that we are going to be quoting from now on, I know it. “What in Satan’s fire does he want?” lol. Do yourself a favor, go out and see 42, form your own opinion and holla at me. I promise you won’t be upset! Enjoy.

Super excited for @pttheshaq senior season of #trackandfield! I truly appreciate your work ethic and determination to go out with a bang this year! Thank you for continuing to work through our sessions! #atn #aretethrowsnation #fieldnation #tracknation #thrownation #coach #athlete #blessing Everyone... meet DeSean. Every day in throw practice with my boys @hfvikingsthrows DeSean is humming, going through vocal warm ups or dancing. He missed practice last week for a recital. It crossed my mind after yesterday’s track meet to ask him how it went. He sent me a snippet of his recital where he covered @samsmithworld - Lay Me Down. (one of my favorites!) Music is such a huge part of my life; always has been and always will be. I don’t share that side of myself with my athletes only because for the 2 hours I’m with them, it’s all about throws. 
In a few weeks he moves on to perform again. I’m excited for him! Just because I’m his throw coach, doesn’t mean I don’t support and encourage my throwers other talents and gifts. Congratulations @deseancarey!
