Green Book (PG-13)

Directed by Peter Farrelly, co-written by Peter Farelly, Nick Vallelonga and Brian Hayes Currie, and starring Viggo Mortensen (as Tony Lip) and Mahershala Ali (as Dr. Don Shirley), Green Book is based on a true story about an unlikely friendship between a street wise, rough around the edges (that is putting it mildly and kindly… Tony was actually somewhat of a thug – I only use the term “somewhat” because being a thug was how he earned his living so I’m cutting him some slack), Italian-American man from the Bronx and a scholarly, worldly, sophisticated, Jamaican-American man from Harlem in the early 1960s and how they used the The Negro Motorist Green Book: An International Travel Guide; USA Alaska Bermuda Mexico Canada, a/k/a  The Green Book to navigate their travels through the South during the Jim Crow era.

This is my new favorite Christmas movie, or should I say anti-Christmas (meaning it takes place around Christmas, but isn’t necessarily about Christmas) movie, again, keeping in mind that among my other favorite “Christmas” movies are Die Hard and The Long Kiss Good Night. I already knew about/had heard of The Green Book, but I have never ever heard anything about Dr. Shirley or his music. How could it be that I’ve never heard of this genius?! He is another incredible “hidden figure” and I’m so happy some portion of his story was told. And watching Mahershala play! Just. Wow! I couldn’t tell whether he was actually playing or not and had to google it to be certain. I mean, no one can expect the man to learn to master piano on Dr. Shirley’s level in a lifetime, much less in months but he sure did make it look good. Ali’s posture and keyboard skills are seriously impressive and may be Oscar-worthy on their own.

Green Book is co-written by Tony Lip’s son, Nick. It’s sort of a “bro” movie where the character development felt as though I were on this road trip with these characters and watching them bond. Their relationship becomes its own character, as it changes and grows along with the two men. The difference between what the characters were like when the movie started and when it ends is satisfying.

Could you imagine a two month road trip with a stranger? You can’t not get to know a person you are stuck in a car with for that long. (In reality, the tour lasted longer than 2 months, but for purposes of the movie the time was condensed. I can’t think of one person on the planet I would want to road trip with for two months without them getting on my last damn nerve.)

In Green Book two people who would otherwise not have spent much time together under very many other circumstances learned about one another, and most importantly, they talked to one another. They broke down preconceived notions they each had about one another. Eventually they helped one another in areas of their lives which merited an intervention. Dr. Shirley disarmed an entire family’s and the surrounding communities’ mindset regarding racism. He worked to help Tony improve his diction, writing, emotional responses, etc. and Tony encouraged Dr. Shirley to reconnect with his brother and let loose and laugh sometimes; to trust and be able to rely on someone other than himself. Tony allowed Dr. Shirley to see that everything in life doesn’t have to be “intellectualized.”

I always enjoy a movie where the two main characters are men since it seems there are so few dramas which feature men and examine their friendships, emotions and issues and the characters actually grow, learn, and evolve. Don’t have any statistics to back that statement up and I don’t have time to research right now. I am very far behind and I have to move on to the next movie…

Green Book earned 9 out of 10 bloops. It’s a well-acted, tightly written, beautifully shot, original movie with excellent performances and a message. Oh yeah – and there’s Christmas! I look forward to learning more about Dr. Shirley and his life.

***

Since seeing Green Book (it took me at least two weeks to post about it as I’ve been unwell) I’ve learned Dr. Shirley’s family won’t see the movie and says it is full of lies (he had eaten fried chicken before, he wasn’t estranged from his family. (In all fairness, Shirley’s character stated he was busy with his work and it was difficult to stay in touch. Busy with his work doesn’t equal estrangement; semantics.) This is called poetic license. The phrase “based on true events” does not equal the gospel. Stories are always told with a skew which will more than likely include the protection, perspective and biases of whomever may be doing the story telling, and in the case of movies, how the information can best be formatted/packaged/presented in a 2 hour movie that makes sense that people will pay to see.

It’s Hollywood. Thank God it’s not a history book (a whole ‘nother conversation. Don’t even get me started…) and only a movie. Things get bent out of shape, turned around, revised, deleted and added to “true” stories all the time. A prime example is Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie which has been proven to be chock full of amended history and slick Hollywood storytelling. (My review in the link. I loved it, and if I watch that Live Aid performance once more…)

Green Book is told through the lens of a third party, Tony Lip’s son, so no one involved was in that car and on the road with these two men. Lip’s son knows what his father and Dr. Shirley told him and has the actual letters Shirley helped Lip write. The name of the movie is not the Dr. Don Shirley Story. It is about both men, how they met and how their relationship developed.

It’s unfortunate the Shirley family is not happy with this film. Not that any of them asked, but my advice is this – if you want a story told the way you want it told, start writing it and tell it. I’m sure there is so much more material in the life of such an amazing man and this one snippet is just the tip of the iceberg. That is a movie that I, for one, would pay to see. (I would also like to see a movie about Victor Hugo Green, author of The Green Book and how he compiled and organized his information.)

Halloween (R)

Co-written and directed by David Gordon Green based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill, and starring Janet Leigh’s and Tony Curtis’ baby girl, Jamie Lee Curtis (I would be remiss if I didn’t mention she is Hollywood royalty. She also got an exec producer credit.), Michael Myers is back in yet another Halloween! It’s 40 years later and wouldn’t you know it? Michael Myers has escaped from the institution. You know that after what he put Jamie Lee Curtis through she wants to finish him, right? And he wants nothing more than to do the same to her because she is “the one who got away.” Such is the premise for Halloween (2018).

I loved the original Halloween, but I have never seen one sequel. I’ve told you before, I’ve been a sequel snob for a very long time. I had no idea 9 other Halloween installments existed before this 2018 one until today. That’s how much attention I pay to this franchise. The only ones I knew about were II and maybe the third (I guess), and I remember hearing Rob Zombie had something to do with one of them. That didn’t even motivate me to see it. For me it is a straight line from the 1978 to here, and it is probably best that way.

I enjoyed this movie, until I didn’t. It’s a mixed bag. It was done in the spirit of the original, with the jack-o-lantern, the music, all the references and it was going along well at first, but this set of teenagers were so very annoying to me. Anyone else? Is it just me? When the phone gets damaged, that would have been how the fight got started. Oh I would have ruined the whole prom. And what was up with those scenes with the baby sitter and the little boy? Fresh children are never funny to me and just, why? I came to watch a horror movie, not a comedy. Not to take away from the younger kid, I’m glad he got a job and a moment, the exchange just felt out of pace with the overall feel of the film. And what’s up with skipping so much of the actual killing in what is supposed to be a slasher movie!? But for the saving grace of a Jamie Lee Curtis, I mean a Laurie Strode, and the realization by all those close to her that she’d been right to prepare for this dude to return all these years, and the stalker-ization of it all in the end, this movie would have been a complete disaster. Oh, an honorable mention to Haluk Bilginer who plays Myers’ doctor.

The best occurs once the prey becomes the predator. I loved the stalking ending and I hope this is the end of Michael Myers. Seriously. Enough already. A 40 year run is more than sufficient. But you know Mike was messing around with one of the women who worked at the facility he was in and they had a secret baby, right? And the child is a killer already at like 4 years old. And so it starts all over again… I’m sure someone will figure out a way to keep it going. But wait a minute… Did I hear Mike breathing at the end of the movie or did I make that up in my head? How is that possible???!!! LOL! Movies. Ya gotta luv ‘em. OH! And when he was in the back seat of the car!!!! Anyone who tells you THAT wasn’t scary is a liar. The movie does have some strong moments and there is a lot to like about it, I just wish it had more.

Halloween earned 7 bloops out of 10. It really took me back to how I felt watching the first movie at times. I’ll throw it a 7 for the nostalgia of it all, but it could have been better with less irritating teens (to be honest, I don’t even know if any of those teens can act. They were pretty bad.). I enjoyed seeing Jamie Lee Curtis revisit her roots and find some closure with a character she will be forever famous for.

Nobody’s Fool (R)

Written and directed by Tyler Perry, starring Tiffany Haddish (Tanya) and Tika Sumpter (Danica), Nobody’s Fool is a comedy/drama. When Tanya is released from jail her sister, Danica, must take her in. Tanya learns that Danica is involved in an on line relationship and suspects her sister is being “catfished.” Tanya sets out to uncover the truth, but all is not what it seems.

This post is going to be less about the movie (it was good) and more about Tyler Perry and my movie-going experience.

Full disclosure: I had no idea this was a Tyler Perry movie until just now, as I was researching to write this post and I must say, I am pleasantly surprised. I made the decision early on in my blogging life to not review Tyler Perry movies. It started with Boo. I thought that movie was absolutely terrible and I refused to review it. I got the idea that until Tyler Perry gave me a movie I could say something nice about, I wasn’t going to bother.

Then I saw Acrimony, but my review was a bit harsh, so I scrapped it. The truth is, I had plenty of nice things to say about Acrimony, but the overdramatic, Tyler Perry-esque silliness which occurred at the end ruined the entire film. I was mad at him for that one, but I still had faith and I waited.

Finally, he’s done it. He’s given me a movie I can review! I admire the man and I’m glad he put something out that I don’t feel the need to pick apart. Thank you Tyler Perry. Thank you.

I just had to get that off my chest before moving on.

Here’s another fearless performance from Haddish. I am growing to love her not only for her work, but for the way she conducts herself in her personal life. That video of her and Whoopie Goldberg is beautiful. I hope she never allows Hollywood and fame to change her. I hope she remains as humble, respectful and frugal as she is right now. (By the way, if you haven’t seen her in the Oath, do. (my review is in the link. It is not in theaters any longer but you should be able to catch it streaming somewhere shortly.) Tika Sumpter is a great actress. I’ve never seen The Haves and the Have Nots because I don’t care for soap operas, but she sold me when she played Michelle Obama in Southside with You (my review is in the link). The supporting cast is great, although there were moments when Omari Hardwick seemed a bit lost or out of sync. I don’t know if Tiffany was going crazy with ad libs and throwing him off, or what.

As funny as this movie was, let me tell you what was funnier; watching this movie in a theater full of black women. When I tell you these women had jokes… Oh. My. Goodness. I laughed harder at and with them than I did at almost anything on that screen. Not that the movie wasn’t funny, because it was, but the additional ambiance caused tears of joy and laughter to stream down my face. I mean, we had a great laugh. Normally, I absolutely despise when people talk during movies. I have walked out and demanded my refund. I am an Alamo Drafthouse-you talk or text, you’re gonna get bounced out of here-type of movie goer. Sweet Lord, my head nearly exploded when I went to see Fences (my review in the link) from all the conversations going on with the screen. (If one more person said, “Oooh, that’s Abraham, Martin and John!” just one more time…) I don’t know what happened to me while watching Nobody’s Fool, but somehow the evening was a real joy, full of this spontaneous community sisterhood with talking and all. Go figure?

Nobody’s Fool earned 7.5 out of 10 bloops. It is a good movie that is worth seeing. Might not be everybody’s cup of tea, but what is. Tiffany is great in it and I’m proud of her as I watch her career blossom. I am thrilled to be able to say that I enjoyed it. Thanks again TP. I’ll have more of this please.

Bohemian Rhapsody (PG-13)

Written by Anthony McCarten and Peter Morgan, directed by Brian Singer and starring Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody is a biopic about the life and times of Queen and the band’s front man, Freddie Mercury

Bohemian Rhapsody is a beautiful tribute to Freddie Mercury. It skips over his last sickly, ailing days spent suffering from AIDS related symptoms (which could have easily been used for dramatic effect and Oscar  pandering fodder, but Freddie was dynamic enough on his own so all of that wasn’t necessary) and cuts it all off at the 1995 Live Aid concert before Freddie became gravely ill. Bohemian Rhapsody features little to no man love (I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but this is a term coined by my daughter when we would watch Queer as Folk together. Anytime it looked like something inappropriate for a 9 year old was about to be shown she would yell out, “Man Love!” and I would have to change the channel until the scene was over and then turn back again.) and is rated PG-13.

I do not believe the PG-13-ness of it all was done as a way of “straight-washing.” Mercury’s sexual, bi-sexual, homosexual, history. People can complain about anything and make up a term for that complaint in a heartbeat). I’m just half-kidding with you all. I know exactly what the term means and I understand how it is being applied, but I don’t think that this is what is going on here. I agree that in Bohemian Rhapsody Freddie’s sexuality early on was treaded upon quite lightly, but his sexuality is not the only thing that is sanitized in this film. There was nothing accurate about the way the band met or was formed; it wasn’t made clear that Freddie never legally married Mary, there wasn’t one instance of drug use; and I’m sure there were a few more things that weren’t historically accurate, but I don’t have time to dig that deep and report back right now. Oscar season is upon us, and as highly anticipated as this movie is/was I gotta keep moving forward.

Queen band mates Brian May and Roger Taylor had/have creative control over the content of this film so, of course they didn’t want to make “The Freddie Mercury Story.” (Had it been that story it would have been much darker and grittier and the straight washing claim of it all may have been valid.). Queen band members wanted to be included in the story and have their stories told as well. So, perhaps it is less about straight washing and more about showing respect to the subject and/or simply writing the story the way they wanted it written, and the balance of the story not to be strictly about Mercury and certainly not solely from his point of view.

Sure, this could have been an opportunity to educate about the AIDS epidemic and so much more, but that’s not the story they wanted to tell. May and Taylor don’t have to explain themselves to anyone. No one can tell them (or me, and I’m kinda starting to take this personally, imagining myself as a person who has a platform to convey my story and being criticized on  how to tell my own story) how they should convey their own story. Everyone loved Freddie, but they were there too, ya know? Not to mention the fact that the only one who could accurately tell the sexual part of Freddie’s story would have been Freddie himself, and considering how private he was about his doings (and his true fans understood and still guard his privacy), call  it what you want, closeted or whatever, it’s doubtful that this man would have wished that the sexual part of his life to be shared in that way. It’s just about showing respect for a friend/band member/colleague/family member. I like the fact that the film focuses on Mercury’s relationships with music, the band, his family and Mary. It focuses quite heavily on his musical process and genius.

Dear Acting Gods…, Rami Malek becomes Freddie Mercury when he performs on stage. Off stage, at times he becomes somewhat of a caricature of Mercury, but when you think about it, wasn’t Freddie Mercury sort of a caricature of himself? He was a dude who felt he had a lot to hide. In  acapella portions of the movie, you hear Malek’s voice. He took voice lessons, studied Mercury and how he danced/spoke/moved/etc. and took piano lessons for more authenticity in his performance. I read that Malek is credited with the idea of recreating Freddie’s famous teeth. As if this movie could have been done and felt authentic without paying homage to the teet! Those teeth were part of Mercury’s legend. And they look much better in the movie than Freddie’s actually looked. It might have been too distracting to attempt to totally recreate them I suppose. And Freddie’s movie teeth are too white. Freddie did not whiten his teeth!  He arose at a time before celebrity tooth whitening was a thing. Aside from that, Malek expertly channels Freddie’s energy on stage and his sadness/loneliness behind the scenes. The supporting cast is stellar. The likeness to the band is freakishly uncanny.

There’s nothing to be said about the music. It’s Queen so it’s all good and you won’t hear a complaint coming out of me. I enjoyed every bit of it. Loved it!

Bohemian Rhapsody earned 9 out of 10 bloops. It is an excellent film if you are willing to take it for what it is.  You will want to get up out of your seat, sing along, clap you hands at least, at the end. This is a feel good movie and that’s the way it was intended to be. A respectful tribute to one of the greatest voices of our time. Rest in Power Farrokh a/k/a Freddie.
