Movies I Am Definitely Owning!

i) Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married?

Check out the cast on Oprah (clips 1 - 8) - A-MAZING (with my lovely Jill Scott)

There was an interview on CBS news (taken off the web) where Mark (one of the presenters) attacked and prodded Janet Jackson about flashing her boobie at the Superbowl although the interview was about the upcoming movie. Tyler Perry was very mature and manly about it and defended her by changing the topic with every unnecessary question asked and making them aware they were there for a 'Movie Interview'. Watch Mark apologise here.

The movie also finished first at the box office and is projected to rake in a whopping $23m. Whoa! Nice one Tyler

ii) Chris Brown, Regina King and Mekhi Phiffer in
This Christmas

You can check out the official site at

iii) Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe in American Gangster

The movie is the inspiration for Jay-Z's upcoming album. It features Denzel Washington portraying Frank Lucas (wikipedia), a real-life heroin kingpin from Manhattan who smuggled heroin into the country in the coffins of American soldiers returning from the Vietnam War. Russell Crowe portrays Richie Roberts, a detective who brings down Lucas's drug empire.

Have a good weekend :o) Updates on Sunday or Late Saturday.
