Spike Lee’s Parisian Fall

Spike Lee’s Parisian Fall

Tell me whats more effective, condemning your friend’s “Pray for Paris” post or actually doing something impactful to graphably improve the murder rate in Chicago?
Its justified to be angered that we don’t always control the headline or narrative but the take away that I glean from the Chi-Raq trailer is we always have the means to control our destiny especially if we approach the issue strategically.

Amandla Sternberg, The Badass Superhero Earthy Girl 

Amandla Sternberg, The Badass Superhero Earthy Girl 

“Yo, this little girl is Cold As F—!” was my first impression upon seeing Amandla Sternberg’s big screen debut playing the younger Cataleya to lead actress Zoe Saldana’s character in Columbiana.

I don’t know who shot first, but Amandla clearly hit her marks and possibly topped Zoe’s dynamic performance. The then 12 year old actress owned the role with her turn as the free running, revenge driven, ruthlessly shrewd yet emotionally disturbed little girl. That’s Superhero, That’s Badass! And more recently she has gone on to prove that it was not just an act.
