This is Not the End

Cruz is doing his share of epic science fiction adventures. For the most part, they tend to be visually stunning and thoughtful. I'm not sure if it's the concept or the dream-like music that pulls me towards this movie. Either way, I want to see this!

Self-Contained and awesome!

One of my favorite creators is doing his thing! A bunch of years ago, I corresponded with this brotha via Hero Talk. His work was entitled Bounty-X, and his style was distinctive and awesome.

Over at Black Science Fiction Society, Nakiwa-oobake dropped episodes one and two of Bounty-X Minddar. Bounty-X is probably one of the most self-contained, immersive worlds I have had the pleasure of experiencing. I'm looking forward to more. Take a look at episode one.

Pure Coolness on the Horizon!

Hetepu, Atef. Retro-KM was great, man. I read this story like Skah and his group are us now and the people of Ta-Amenta are us in the future. Or is Skah, his group, and the people of Ta-Amenta us from the times before the us of now and just a link in the chain of our collective ancestral memory? It is good to see us in the future where we smash down on the enemy and have come to our Afrakan senses, some of us. It was also good that you presented the idea of bringing what is broken and spread apart back to one, instead of fighting those endless battles with a seemingly spiritless enemy (or that enemy within us: lack of emotional control). Got to maintain Men-Ab! I am on the path to living the Afrakan way. Your writing helped me along this path. Edward Uzzle, Asante. Keep doing what it is that you do, Atef! Hetepu.

Oh, this is an excellent reflection on the culture of the enemy: "New America. Fantasy capital of the world. Where virtual families, empty hearts, and stolen souls are the norm. The land of the sleep walkers. It's all here. He who gathers the most things at the expense of his own humanity wins. Life here is a media driven event" (Uzzle 1997:158).

New Spike Lee Joint

We had to back Spike Lee's latest endeavor. Folks mad cause the brotha went to the people and didn't bother to beg "them" for the funds to make his latest project happen.

After Earth

Okay, so it’s gotten bad reviews. How surprising. LOL. I mean c’mon on, why would anyone be surprised that a movie with an intact black family; black man, black woman, black children - strong heroic black man, stoic insightful black woman, and two close black siblings, get bad reviews?

After Earth is a visual stream of advanced technology, a commanding war hero/father who works too much, a guilt ridden son trying to find his way, and a beautiful mother who is the glue that binds the family together. After Earth has your basic science fiction survival formula. Man; in this case boy, against nature. Boy over comes inner doubt and hence his immediate environment. Cool and compelling villain. The foundation is solid.

The movie is decent, ya’ll. Don’t fall for the smoke screen. You want to see a movie with blacks in the future, saving folks, in command of themselves and their surroundings, and loving one another and NOT hating others (note how I had to qualify the non-hate part, lol), then After Earth is a great way to spend your Saturday.

As I wrote at one of my favorite hangouts;
Black Science Fiction Society, After Earth is a perfect alternative to the cross dressing, thug culture, buck-dancing, bed wench, split family drivel that the world is saturated with as it relates to Black People. Don’t let those who don’t have our best interests at heart fool you into shying away from this movie.

LOL, then again, if you are a visitor to, then you already know this.

Let it be known, After Earth is worth seeing!
