Theme:– “The Year of ‘Growmance’
Where Love Beats Fear in Upping Our Game This Year” (Old-School Flava)
It seems 2013 has been a banner year for Black films. There was Lee Daniels’ the Butler featuring Oprah and Forest Whitaker. We had Fruitvale Station and ’12 Years a Slave.’ For laughs, Tyler Perry gave us a ‘Madea Christmas’ experience. So, how about Kevin Hart and Lebron James as Cops & Ballers?
Hart is ‘hot in Hollywood’ these days while James is back-to-back NBA MVP. Word is that next year they’ll star in a new movie called ‘Ballers.’ Hart’s character lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (to be played by James), and gets a chance to tryout and live his dreams at a basketball fantasy camp.
The script is being written by Hart and others. So take a page from Hart’s success ‘cause living your dreams is like turning scripts into movies. It’s going from vision to reality by scripting your ideas and acting-out your hunches. This works as a kind of ‘dream simulator’ for putting your dreams in flight.
James’ movie has been in the works for some time. It’s had a couple false-starts and changes along the way. Sometimes this happens with movies and with dreams. There’re setbacks and miss-fires. It takes a ‘dream motivator’ to keep hopes and dreams alive. That’s what a good book or inspiring movie can do.
Superhero flicks have also been raking in big bucks this year with Iron Man and Man of Steel just to name two. A box office movie franchise is more like a ‘dream elevator’ than career-ladder. It’s why everyday dreamers, movers and shakers work hard bringing out their own superhero, one success-floor at a time.
The Year of ‘Growmance’
Where Love Beats Fear in Upping Our Game This Year” (New-School Flava)
2013 was a banner year. Black films not bringing up the rear. Lee Daniels’ The Butler with Oprah role. Forest Whitaker as her honey-love soul. Fruitvale and 12 Years a Slave. Not critics choice but still some rave. Tyler Perry films ‘Madea Christmas’ folks. Kevin Hart and Lebron James with Cops & Ballers jokes?
Hart’s ‘hot in Hollywood’ these days. James still gets back-to-back MVP praise. Some time next year new movie shoots. As ‘Ballers’ going back to their roots. Hart’s character in the shadow of his brother. Played by James as NBA superstar scorer. Gets to tryout and live his dream. Playing on basketball fantasy team.
Script being written by Hart as well. Really shouldn’t be a tough sell. Take a page from Hart’s success reel. Living your dreams brings a good feel. Vision to reality, scripts to clips. Ideas, hunches and big-money trips. Being in a ‘dream simulator’ both day and night. Helps with putting many-a-dreams in flight.
James’ movie in the works for a while. Few false-starts and shifts in action style. Happens with movies and dreams for the making. There’re setbacks and miss-fires for the taking. Lock-in a ‘dream motivator’ to keep hopes and dreams on track. Like a good book or inspiring movie brings payback.
Lots of superhero flicks raking in the dough. Iron Man and Man of Steel letting Benjamins flow. Bring on the box office movie franchise for real. Takes a ‘dream elevator’ to fast-track the career deal. It’s how dreamers raise their game and industry cred. Becoming mover and shakers who’re a step ahead.
Tip: Upping your game means looking your dreams in the eye and giving it wings to fly.
