My 6 yr old daughter, #outandaboutAva, loves to color but her favorite activity was the maze. She said she wanted to help Meg be a warrior and find her Dad before she going to school this morning. She did it…good job!

If you did not read this book, no worries! I believe you and your family will enjoy this all star cast bringing this story to life. Here is a brief synopsis of the film:

Meg Murry (Storm Reid) is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self-worth who is desperate to fit in. As the daughter of two world-renowned physicists, she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is Meg’s younger brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), but she has yet to realize it for herself. Making matters even worse is the baffling disappearance of Mr. Murry (Chris Pine), which torments Meg and has left her mother (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) heartbroken. Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin (Levi Miller) to three celestial guides—Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon) and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling)—who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they set off on their formidable quest. Traveling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are soon transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must look deep within herself and embrace her flaws to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness closing in on them.

A WRINKLE IN TIME opens in theatres everywhere this Friday March 9th! Do you plan to see it?

My experience opening night viewing @theBlackPanther Movie @Raleighwood Cinema Grill ! #BlackPanther #WakandaForever 

Disclosure: I received complimentary media passes for viewing of first showing at Raleighwood, however opinions about my experience are my own.


In anticipation of BLACK PANTHER coming to theaters it was with great pleasure that I saw Raleighwood, “Triangles’ top rated movie theater, and only truly unique restaurant since 1993” was showing the movie on Thursday 2/15 !! I have heard about this cinema and how you can enjoy great food and drinks while watching hit movies in a casual and comfortable environment. Raleighwood hosted myself and a guest (my friend, fellow blogger Jen of jenoni.com rolled with me) to a girls night out in Raleigh to see a movie we all have been waiting for…BLACK PANTHER!

Why is this movie so important for us to see? Because as African-Americans we rarely, if ever get a chance to see ourselves as a super hero. Marvel Comic has solved that issue with this movie. Without giving away any spoilers, I will say this movie was Ahhh-maaazzzing! From the costumes, to the script, the setting and of course the great acting and action, this is movie that needs to be seen by EVERYONE! I especially loved the representation of powerful women in this film, which showed a great balance of the women leading and serving. SobeSavvy Tip: Stay past the credits (both of them) for movie extras. Just when you think it’s over. It ain’t over! You don’t want to miss what Marvel Studios have planned for BLACK PANTHER!

Synopsis: Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

Check out this cool featurette for Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER about how the film went from the page to the screen!

BLACK PANTHER arrives TODAY in theatres everywhere on February 16, 2018! If you live in Raleigh, plan to see it at RALEIGHWOOD for a unique movie with dining experience. Get there early and choose from the various seating and table arrangements inside the theater. They serve food, beer and wine to be consumed before and during the feature film. We split an order of their chicken wings and a order of steak fries and it was pretty good! The whole experience was great and I plan to go back to see BLACK PANTHER again for the $5.50 matinee today!! Yep..it was that great !

Have you seen or plan to go see BLACK PANTHER? Share your thoughts below! Thanks for reading! Wakanda Forever!

@DisneyMoana #Moana Advanced Screening in #Raleigh #AD #RWM ~Review by #SobeSavvy 

MOVIE SYNOPSIS

Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why. 

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. 

During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder.

Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. 

Voice Cast: Auli‘i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Jemaine Clement, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Alan Tudyk. 

Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker, produced by Osnat Shurer, and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i.

Moana Review

Set in the Hawaiian islands, Moana follows its namesake who is a young girl who is the future chief of her people. She must go on a fantastic voyage over the ocean to face down a monster that holds the key to saving her village. Along the way she ecounters a a demigod names Maui. Together they face all sorts of challenges natural and supernatural. The amazing 3D animation and memorable soundtrack make Moana an instant classic. The kids in the theatre cheered at the end. If kids loike a movie then you KNOW it’s good. I don’t know who loved it more, me or my 5 year old! Over the long upcoming Thanksgiving weekend take the whole family on a virtual Polenysian vacation right at the movies. Be prepared to join Moana on a fantastic journey !

SobeSavvy.com Reviews #InTheirOwnWords :The Tuskeegee Airman @FathomEvents #TuskeegeeAirman75 @BrytonEnt

image

Fathom Events and Bryton Entertainment are proud to bring In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen – The 75 Anniversary to select cinemas nationwide for a special one-night event on Tuesday, March 29.

SobeSavvy.Com headed to the movies to celebrate the historic heroes in this exclusive documentary event, which featured a panel discussion captured at the National Air Force Museum with Tuskegee Airman Lt. Col. George Hardy, Former Administrator of NASA Col. Fred Gregory, as well as the producer Bryan Williams and director Denton Adkinson.

In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen – The 75th Anniversary features 16 Tuskegee Airmen as they recall their incredible experiences through emotional interviews, rare photographs, archival footage and computer-generated recreations. Experience the tales and exploits of America’s first African-American fighter pilots who, by flying the skies of the European Theater during World War II, broke racial barriers stateside.

I watched as the Airmen remembered being some of the first to begin the civil rights movement and living long enough to see the changes that would continue to resonate today. What made this special was that first person account of how many obstacles all of them had to overcome to earn their wings. Racist superiors who thought they were not brave or smart enough to be fighter pilots. In a twist of fate, no other than the first lady Eleanor Roosevelt also helped to advance their cause when she choose to actually be flown by one of the airmen. Perceptions changed, albeit slowly.

Most of them were tasked with being bomber escorts on missions. Protecting and making sure B-52’s delivered their bombs on target was essential for winning the war. The bomber crews were always happy to see the airmen who painted their plane tails red, so everyone called them the “Red Tails”. They proved their mettle to the nation only to come home after the war and still face the virulent racial injustices that was still prevalent.

These patriots paved the way for black aviators of the future. They are true American heroes. Great story and great documentary.

#Miami ! This Friday, Get Ready to #GetHard or Go Home! @GetHardMovie Starring @KevinHart4real @WillFerrel ~ Advanced Screening Recap by #SobeSavvy .com

image

Go Hard, Laugh Hard and go see Get Hard! Will Ferrell gets an education in incarceration from Kevin Hart in this Warner Bros. Pictures’ comedy.
This movie is about a millionaire,  James King who after being nailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, he turns to Darnell Lewis to prep him to go behind bars. The coin themselves ” Mayo” and “Chocolate”. Get Hard is a buddy film. One going to jail and the other prepping him to go to jail.

The jokes and gags do the seemingly impossible. They offend every possible racial, ethnic and sexual orientation group. Equal homophobic and racist at the same time. It is done in a very lighthearted way. No cruelty or malice intended. Some critics have taken these jokes too seriously ,while I just enjoyed the silliness of it all. I laughed and audience goers around me laughed even harder.

Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell have a comedic chemistry on screen which made for an enjoyable movie. These supporting cast members:  Craig T. Nelson who played Martin Barrow, the founder of Barrow Funds (Ferrell’s character’s boss) and also the father of Ferrell’s character’s fiancee, Alison Briesigned who plays the fiancee of Ferrell’s character, Edwina Findley acts as Rita Hudson, wife to Hart’s character , Dan Bakkedah played Rick, Ferrell’s hated frenemy at their office and T.I. who played a character named Joaquin, Hart’s character’s streetwise cousin….. all added to the funny!

Color Me #FiftyShades of Impressed! @FiftyShades #MovieReview by #SobeSavvy .com

Mr. Grey will see you now…or shall I say YOU should GO see Mr. Grey TODAY!

In cinemas now,
Fifty Shades of Grey
The hotly anticipated film adaptation of the bestselling book that has become a global phenomenon. Since its release, the “Fifty Shades” trilogy has been translated into 51 languages worldwide and sold more than 100 million copies in e-book and print—making it one of the biggest and fastest-selling book series ever. 

image

Stepping into the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, who have become iconic to millions of readers, are Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. 

Joining Dornan and Johnson in the cast are Luke Grimes as Elliot, Christian’s brother; Victor Rasuk as José, Anastasia’s close friend; Eloise Mumford as Kate, Anastasia’s best friend and roommate; Marcia Gay Harden as Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey, Christian’s mother; Rita Ora as Mia, Christian’s sister; Max Martini as Taylor, Christian’s bodyguard; Callum Keith Rennie as Ray, Anastasia’s stepfather; Jennifer Ehle as Carla, Anastasia’s mother; and Dylan Neal as Bob, Carla’s husband. 

Fifty Shades of Grey is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti alongside E L James, the creator of the series. The screenplay for the film is by Kelly Marcel.

image

Color me impressed with all fifty shades of grey and then some!  I thought the movie adapted well from the book. Viewers not familiar with the book will enjoy it as much as the readers. While the movie could not be as “graphic” as the novel, it has the spirit, sexiness and sensuality that the book had. This a great date night movie or a fun girls night out. Beware, your bottom may be a little tender when you leave :}

The critics have said the following :
