Sparkle- “ E” on the scene.. of “Proud Mary” opening weekend at the box office!!!

..🎶…And we’re rolling…. Rolling… Roll-ing down the River!!!! 🎵🎶

“Proud Mary,” focuses on a hard core assasin… wiith a soft spot… for a child who needs her…

Mary Goodwin, (Taraji P. Henson), is a bad ass chick… working for an organized crime family in Boston.

She is the key hit woman for one drug cartel, while this creepy dude “Uncle” is a drug dealer for a rival one…

Their paths often cross… during mean street conflicts… and territorial issues…

After a professional hit… Mary leaves a young boy…Danny (Jahi Di’Allo Winston), unharmed….

Danny is a young runner for “Uncle.” A year after the hit… Mary re-discovers the boy…in an unfortunate situation… and rescues him…

Her life spirals out of control… when she responds to something connected to the child in a flash of anger….

Mannnnnn….when Mary sees RED… 😡 WATCH OUT ‼️‼️‼️

This Sista is a baaaaaadddd…….. !@&$%## 🤬

(((( Shut yo’ 👄 mouth!!!))) 🤐

Uh-huh that’s right… hardcore assasin action to make you think about a modern day “Shaft” meets Coffee meets Jackie Brown… meets Cleopatra Jones….meets “Cookie” turnt up several notches…. yeah!!!!

👉🏽 that’s it…that’s it!!!! 👈🏽

I think we all like that special flavor…Taraji brings to her roles…

If you like her as Cookie… and you followed all her big time action in “person of interest” ——> like I did…. You… will L❤️VE this film!!!!

As for me… I love this film for a lot of reasons: #1. It takes me back to matinee saturdays of my childhood… when we would either go to see movies from this genre… or catch them on 📺 TV…. If we were lucky… some “super station” like TBS… or one of the networks would show us an evening presentation of an ACTION movie like this… with an ALL STAR BLACK CAST….

I saw in one review… where someone called “Proud Mary” a blaxploitation Film…. Nah. I disagree….

❌❌❌ Slow.your.roll……..❌❌❌

Why would you even categorize it like that… in 2018… when we’ve had TONS of other mob movies… and crime dramas… and action thrillers with bad ass characters.. shiesty… and shady ones too…(((just like this…))) and no one labeled those with a negative by-line…

💁🏽‍♀️ So PLEASE… .LETS.NOT.GO.THERE!!!!! 🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️

#2. Taraji is one of the few leading ladies… of color to headline a FILM in Hollywood ⭐️🎬🎞🎥⭐️ and this is MAJOR folks!!! ((( She’s really good in this role peeps: rugged…raw… and so real!!! “A super-sista.. assasin… with a heart ❤️ of gold”)))

✨✨ But wait…. there’s MORE!!!✨

Taraji is also credited as EXECUTIVE PRODUCER of this film…. and THAT is a major feat… for an African American woman… to achieve in Hollywood ….

Watch this… She does this…all the while she’s starring in ANOTHER leading role… for the HIT Fox television series… “EMPIRE!!!” 💥💥💥💥💥Boom!

You guys: What was that⁉️

Evette: Glad you asked…..

That was me dropping the mic… 🎤💥

Picking the mic back up…. 🎤

Now… I read some where… where SOME-BODY said the plot… and story line was quote “ sloppy”…

Humph….. putting my heads on hips…

You know…what…

There are real life things happening just like this… in the inner cities all over the world FOR REAL…. If you rip articles from the news papers… LIFE is hardcore… It’s GRITTY…. it’s tough… hardcore events occurring on the streets are not perfectly choreographed… or planned… or perfectly scripted out…

This story line takes a path of its own… as one thing… leads to another… and attempts to FIX the mess… just keeps.getting.worse…

This is ENTERTAINMENT folks… A work of FICTION that has been created to suck you in… and keep your attention to the very end…. An ending that will surprise you….😮 something we wouldn’t expect….after everything that happened….

This SONY and SCREEN GEMS project stars:

Taraji P. Henson as Mary Goodwin. Billy Brown as (Tom),… hey y’all… this is the fine detective dude… that Annalise would have those hot steamy encounters with… on ABC’s…”How to get away with murder…” 😅

In my southern gossip lady voice: “Oh Lawd!!! Mister… and Shug Avery done got back together!!!” 🙌🏽 ( Lolz!!!!!)

Slaps knee… 😆 and continues: All dez years after “The Color Purple!!” 🤣… but this time … “ They’s married now!!!” 🤣😅😂😆

Just a fun fflashback to the famous line… Oprah’s character Sophia said… after she married Harpo…( “We’d married now!!!) which by the way… has been a spirited expression… that all my close friends have said… after they walked down the isle in REAL LIFE… he…hee… just one of the cute lil’ things that adds to wonderful memories…

Anywho… One more thought to share: The SLANG language I use..in writing… is just a creative way to add some spice to my blogs… peeps..

so chill… 😜 savor… the flavor…and enjoy the humor of it all…

💁🏽‍♀️ Now where was I…🙋🏽‍♀️ Oh! “Mister” in the Color Purple” you know…was played by the Great actor…Danny Glover… who is now..(Benny) …. head of a powerful Boston drug family in “Proud Mary”…

Benny’s beautiful wife… (Mina), is the divine actress…Margaret Avery… oooh… ☝🏽one more credit…y’all…

Margaret Avery also plays the role of Mary Jane’s mom.. on the hit series…”Mary Jane” on BET…🙂

Last but not least…Introducing Jahi Di’Allo Winston… who does a fantastic job as the young Boy (Danny)….

I predict we’ll see a lot more of his cute face in Productions to come! 👍🏽 …

rounding out the sensational cast are MaNeal McDonough as (Walter)… Xander Berkeley as (Uncle.) and Rade Serbedzija as Luka.

“Proud Mary” is directed by Babak Nahafi…. from a script by Steven Antin, John Stuart Newman and Christian Swegal. The project was produced by. Andrea Ajemian. and co-producer. Tai Duncan.

********** Newsflash!!!!! 📸 *********

I can definitely see a couple of doors🚪 🚪 🚪 that could open-up into an intriguing PART TWO… for “PROUD MARY”

production / writing ✍🏽 Crew…. I have got some GREAT ideas for YOU!!!

!!!!!!! Ooooo-ooooh!!!!!!!! Y’all need to 🤙🏽 call me! 📞 I’ve got 3 different great storylines drafted in my head!!!!

👉🏽If…. ….you guys haven’t started on a part two…. yet! 😉

Peace ✌🏽 out everybody…. round up your crew… and go out and BUY TICKETS to support this film!!!

Taraji has used her voice… and influence to support important issues in Hollywood… ( and for women! )

She’s been HONORED by Women in Film… for her achievements in television & film… as well as her commitment and dedication to the entertainment industry.

Taraji is also an HBCU grad… of HOWARD UNIVERSITY….(( HU.))) who made it BIG!!!! #Yay!!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

As a graduate of CAU… (Clark-Atlanta)..in the AUC… ( Atlanta University Center….) I Say: Let’s demonstrate our power at the movie box office!!!

HBCU grads… 👩🏽‍🎓👨🏽‍🎓and students now enrolled in these prestigious institutions… plan a fun night at the movies… and support this project! Spread the word… with positive vibes!!!

I bought a souvenir ticket…and was pleased to walk into a packed theater @RegalMovies in downtown LA… #ProudMaryAtRegal

My Challenge is also issued to Sororites, Fraternities, Guy groups, girl squads…. roll dolls… golden girls… and guys… senior groups… couples getting together for “date night” 💋…and every other group of folks out there…who have prayed for diversity in film making!

Folks who will appreciate a great escape from real 🌎 world problems… to the world of excitement… and fictional action on the BIG SCREEN!!!

Here’s to MORE outstanding movies 🎥 being made… 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽…and giving DESERVING ACTORS a chance to ✨✨SHINE ON!!!✨✨

—>Keep Up! 😉<—

“An Evening with… Regina⭐️King…” Hollywood Confidential 


Hollywood ⭐️ can be a tough place to navigate… but for REGINA KING…it’s been smooth sailing since her childhood… 👧🏽 —> Everybody remembers spunky lil’ “BRENDA” Jenkins on the NBC sitcom 227 (1985–90) 
Now there were a few difficult years …after 227 ended. Suddenly…Regina says work was hard to get.. because most casting people could only see her as that  💕sweet lil’ teenager👧🏽 🎀💕from the show… 

-but- ☝🏽Regina changed her destiny ….taking on more challenging roles. characters that were tougher… outspoken.. streetwise… and sometimes hardcore….

Ooohhhh yeahhhh…. #SheDidThat!!!

She went HARD in “Boys in the Hood” “Poetic Justice” and “Higher Learning” 

She jumped easily between dramatic roles <——> and comedic performances in films including “Friday” “A Thin Line Between Love and Hate”—-> “How Stella got her groove back” 

YasSssss!!!!👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽  Regina was on her way to BIG SUCCESS with a supporting role in the feature film “Jerry Maguire.” 

Working with Cuba Gooding she says was great! Regina says they “clicked” in the audition… and had great chemistry on screen.

—-but wait… there’s MORE…. 👉🏽👉🏽 More movies 🎥!!!!

“Enemy of the state” “Miss Congeniality” “Mighty Joe Young” “Down to Earth” “Daddy Day Care” “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde”  “A Cinderella Story” “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous…” and the Oscar nominated film “Ray” followed by “This Christmas” 🎄 

Other hit TV shows…involved acclaimed work as the voice of Huey and Riley Freeman for the animated series “The Boondocks” 

and then came “Southland..” where she played the role of  Detective Lydia Adams on TNT… followed by parts in “The Big Bang Theory” “Shameless” and the FX thriller “The Strain.”

Making wise career choices… with a more diverse selection of roles in film and television… gave Regina a chance to prove herself as a GREAT ACTOR… with serious skills!

Her star ⭐️ continued to ✨RISE✨ … as she won MULTIPLE awards for her performances.

 Regina’s role in “Southland” scored two Critics’ Choice Award nominations for “Best Supporting Actress” in a Drama Series in 2012 and 2013.  From 2015 to 2017, she starred in the ABC series “American Crime,” –> earning  TWO WINS for Emmy Awards…and a total of three nominations for “Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series” She has had won SAG AWARDS, and NAACP Honors..

-Regina was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award! 

Wow!- This sista has been doing it… and doing it RIGHT!!!! 👍🏽

From 2015 to 2017, she played Erika Murphy on the critically acclaimed HBO drama, “The Leftovers,”for which she has received a Critics’ Choice Television Award nomination.

The MULTIPLE award winning actress 🏆shared wonderful stories with the audience… she answered detailed questions about her film 🎞🎥and television📺 career…. from Steve Jones… creator of #HollywoodConfidential

Steve asked Regina lots of intriguing questions….helping the audience learn more about her hopes… and dreams..

One of Regina’s dreams… was to use the knowledge she’s gained… from more than 30 years in show business... to guide other actors… in the process.

*********    and so…..  **********

King took ACTION!!!! 👉🏽 and took her career up to the next level … stepping behind the camera…. and on her mark ✖️in the role of “DIRECTOR!!!” 

👉🏽 Cut to how she got ready for this major leadership role…

👉🏽 Regina says she applied for director training programs…. and well… the rest is HISTORY!!! 

Her impressive list of directing credits include:

“Let the church say amen” 🙏🏽 (BET) “Scandal” (ABC) , “Animal Kingdom” (TNT), “Being Mary Jane” (BET), “Greenleaf” (OWN), “Pitch” (Fox), “Shameless” (Showtime), Most recently… she directed NBC’s hit TV series… “This is Us.”


So you see… this well known Hollywood talent has been on a ROLL!!!

Regina’s star rose higher…..and higher…. ✨🌟✨ and it’s still GOING!!!! Woooo!!!!

((( Shielding eyes…👀)))  It’s  waaay up there… and SHINING ✨✨✨BRIGHT!!!!✨✨✨ alright my sista…. #ShineOn! 

“An evening with Regina King” was sponsored by Hollywood Confidential.. and held on Thursday, October 5, 2017… at the Saban Theatre… in Beverly Hills, CA 

******** News Flash!!!! 📸 ******* 

Regina announced at the event…that she and her sister just closed an entertainment deal for a NEW project.  

She says she’s THRILLED to be in a position to give more opportunities to talented women in the industry.  

Regina also announced that she’s working on her first  MOVIE 🎥 in 9 years!!! 

After all… she says she’s been extremely busy in TELEVISION… and Yasssss!!!! TV 📺 has been very, VERY **GOOD** to her! 🤗 

Listening to her personal stories… and advice was truly inspiring! I looked around at people in the audience.. and noticed several faces just **glowing!** 

What a beautiful group of people I thought…💭

 Many were naturally attractive… but quite a few looked even more ~sensational ~ after getting STAR ⭐️ treatment… with complimentary PAMPERING Services… sponsored by WALGREENS

👉🏽Now **that’s *** what I’m talking about!!! 😄
It was a night 🌃 filled with LOTS of surprises 😄for attendees!

Casting Director Kim Hardin…and a corporate executive from Walgreens talked about the ~fabulous~ onsite set-up….of exciting product demonstrations.


*** WALGREENS ***  sponsored a ✨Pop-Up  BEAUTY Shop✨at the event! 

My eyes 👀 lit up when I walked in the room…. and saw all those beauty Services!!!

Lots of lucky🍀 ladies… took advantage of massages…makeup… 💄💋 eyelash and lipstick bars, manicures.. 💅🏽 
There were also coupons passed out…along with keepsakes for EVERYONE to take home! 

#SWAG BAGS 💼 make you GLAD!!! #Yay!!!!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

 Legendary casting director Kim Hardin..who discovered Taraji, J-LO, Tyrese, Halle Berry and several other popular stars…took the stage again… after the discussion with Regina King… to share tips…that every every actor needs to know… to book leading roles! 

Hardin encouraged actors to “put in the work” and keep acting skills tight…taking classes focusing on scene study…improv… and character development…. 

She said performers should go to auditions ~prepared~ with key knowledge about the characters they’re reading for in session…. 

She believes it’s important for actors to breakdown interpretations of how they believe a character ~thinks~ and ~feels…~ 

Hardin motivated actors to do their BEST in auditions. Make wise choices… & be confident. 

She says actors should NEVER stress out about what they could have done… or should have done… Just Let it go! When you’re done…with the audition.. be done!

Asking your representative to get notes from casting directors about your performance later is fine she says… Ultimately… these details help actors do better…the next time they audition…. or even book a role.

Hardin believes actors should always keep pictures up to date… with a variety of different looks! She wants to KNOW exactly who you are…. when you walk in the room with that headshot!

#Wow! #ThereSheGoesAgain! 👠

 

Get your #Diamond Life!!! 💎 👉🏽 Catch a BRIGHT GLIMMER of a modern day miracle… up HIGH in the sky!!!

#Wow!!! 👉🏽 #HeyNow!!!!  

#Sparkle “E” will  be on the scene…. to try and catch this ✨spectacle✨ in the sky!!! 

✨It’s going to be… AMAZING !!!!✨

On Monday, August 21, 2017… ALL of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. 

YesSs!!!! An awesome sight to behold!  The moon will completely cover the sun… and it can be seen from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. 

Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk. 

Heyyyy…. the last day an #eclipse was ~THIS~ big of a deal… with excited crowds and all…was in 1918!!!! 

-and- The last time a TOTAL ECLIPSE was seen… was in back 1979! And it’s not EXPECTED to happen again… until 2024 

People have been planning hikes up into the mountains of North Carolina to see this… 

In fact… in some Places across North America… folks have been staking out spots on the beach to check this out. In other areas……there are reports of people expected to pack out stadiums to watch. 

**Mannn!!!  This is a BIG DEAL! ** 

 ******** You Betcha!!!! ******** 

something http://www.sparkle-e.com 💎has DEFINITELY taken a #shine to!!

#Ahem! 💁🏽 Here is a #geewiz #fact about the #eclipse happening TODAY… (Monday), 8/21/2017 

#TotalEclipse #Fact 👉🏽 The last glimmer of the #sun ☀️gives way to a momentary “sparkle” known as the “diamond 💎 ring” effect… just before the #sun ☀️slips completely behind the #moon 🌕

 👉🏽 oooOoOo ooohhh!!!
#eclipse2017 is ~EXPECTED~ to be #visible… in #northernamerica on the #westcoast #LA 🌴 #losangeles #california #southerncalifornia #socal —> just after 9am 8/21/2017 

Now here’s another #GeeWiz #Fact… the moon🌕 reportedly appears to look RED☄️… at a certain point during an eclipse….🌖

Hmmmm….. 🤔 I know… I know… you’re probably wondering…. whyyyy???? 

Well……..

You see… the Earth’s atmosphere creates the orangish color ☄️to the moon during an eclipse.  The atmosphere acts like a “filtered lens.” 

It bends “red sunlight”  into our planet’s shadow…and scatters out blue light. Hey… It’s the same reason why sunrises and sunsets appear reddish…. #Whoa! talking about “colorful” details!!! 

So there ya go!!! Try to play it safe… when trying to catch a peak at this show… the experts say looking directly at the sun ☀️ during this 2 and a half hour situation… can be harmful to the eyes… even if you’re wearing regular sunglasses…

#remember to have on your #special #eclipseglasses. 😎 

Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, (even very dark ones), are not safe for looking directly at the sun…they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight. 

******  Special note:  📝 *****

Refer to the American Astronomical Society (AAS) Reputable Vendors of Solar Filters & Viewers (link is external) page for a list of manufacturers and authorized dealers of eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers verified to be compliant with the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard for such products.

Remember! ☝🏽when a band of light encircles the moon and a small section of the sun shines through… it will be as ✨ #bright ✨ as a #diamond 💁🏽#wellalrightythen #shineon !!!!

I must say… there are some very interesting NEW things being developed… to suit a wide variety of interests…. 

Take this game…. below…👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽for example… The main character is simply trying to gather ingredients… to cook a meal! 

It’s the “process” the gaming leade lady must endure… and the obstacles she must overcome… to accomplish this mission… that makes this game EXCITING & FUN!!! Of course there MORE interesting characters are included in this concept… to really grab the attention of players…
While this game –appears– to be simple… of course it’s not! A trick of the trade to keep those who LOVE a challenge…”locked in!!!”
