  1. I'm down. Crazy busy right now so I hope I can find the time, but I'd love to talk about it.
  2. My wife and I enjoyed it a lot... and I mean, a lot! It was so fun seeing a reimaging of something we've seen so often and know so well. I've always thought that the general story lent itself well to a more serious, dramatized version, and I think they did an excellent job translating it for a modern audience. The easter eggs are fun and really test your memory of the original. I'd suggest that anyone who is a fan of the original avoid watching it again as preparation for the remake. Test your memory and familiarity with the original by seeing how well you can connect the new version to the old. I have a bunch of other thoughts (mostly positive) regarding some of the casting and story choices they made, but I'll hold off and let others chime in.
  3. I've spent an inordinate amount of time watching reaction videos on YouTube. Always starts off with "Ok Will Smith..." Quickly followed by "Okay, Will Smith!" Always ends with "Okaaaaaaay, Will Smith!!!!!! Bars!!! Facts!!! He snapped!!!"
  4. This was Just absolute fire I've listened a few times now, and he's still got it. Glad to see the positive reaction and reception around the web. --------------- Even when the streets called me corny I still ain't never let the hate break me. I just wanted the respect first I still ain't never letting fame change me. Sheesh....
  5. This tragedy feels incredibly surreal. Kobe was a basketball icon... the ultimate competitor... an ambassador of the game. It is shocking to see him pass in the prime of his post NBA career. He had a number of post-NBA business ventures, charities and mentor relationships that built on the amazing legacy of his NBA career. He was a giant who will be missed. And to hear that his 13 year old daughter, who he was mentoring, whose basketball team he was coaching, and who had dreams of making it to the WNBA, died as well is especially heartbreaking. My heart goes out to his wife Vanessa and his three surviving daughters... one of whom is only a few months old. I can't begin to imagine the kind of pain they are in, but I hope that in the coming days, weeks and months, they are surrounded by the love of friends, family and loved ones who will make the pain and the burden of their loss if only a little more bearable. His parents and sisters are in my prayers as well. You never expect to see your child or sibling lose their life at such an early age and in such an unexpected fashion. I hope they are comforted and are able to comfort each other during what has to be an unbelievably difficult time. I'm also praying for the families of the pilot and other individuals who died in the crash. Life is fleeting... it's a vapor... but I hope they are able to find comfort in the outpouring of love and support from their friends, extended families and communities.
  6. I saw it last weekend and loved it. I thought they did a wonderful job telling a story that deserved to be told. There were major concerns in the industry and from fans alike that this was a cash grab that would result in a cheap, poorly made, nonsensical movie, but BB3 has surpassed the expectations of even some of the most ardent fans of the series. I like that they took special care to humanize Martin and Will, and provide some commentary on the consequences of the violence they so often found themselves in the middle of. The humor was great, the acting was great, the action was great, though toned down from BB2, an the story was awesome. Definitely a movie to add to the collection.
  7. I like how Will went about Bad Boys for Life. He had no desire to mess up the franchise given how beloved the first two installments were, so he refused to sign on until the script was solid and worthy of a sequel. I expect his approach will be the same for Bad Boys 4, especially given the success we're expecting for Bad Boys for Life.
  8. The reception has been great. Movie goers are loving it and it's set to make some major money for a January release.
  9. Apparently he had a really great story with Will involved, but had to change it once Will opted not to reprise his Hiller role.
  10. Yeah, we enjoyed it quite a bit. Some of the critics are ridiculous... what can you do.
  11. Ain't this the truth. It sounds like many of the critics went in looking to hate it, and surprise, surprise, found things to hate. Most off the criticism centered on "Why was this even made? Can't people just enjoy the one made 27 years ago?" The criticisms are also quite disparate. Some critics hated it because they viewed it as unnecessary a "scene by scene" remake of the original... it wasn't. Others hated it because too many things were changed and some of their supposed favorite parts from the original didn't make it into the live action version. Those two criticisms are mutually exclusive; this particular story can't be too similar and too different at the same time. The good thing is that I've noticed that some of those who have seen it and like it have called out the critics for some of this non-sense. Not to dismiss anyone's criticisms, but some of the bashing really is non-sense, and I'm glad to see that movie goers are smarter than what the critics give them credit for. It's shaping up to be a big year for Will.
  12. Reviewers seem to be ok with it, but movie goers seem to love it so far. Some of the reviews are quite divergent and pretty negative. There's a "Disney money grab" narrative that everyone who dislikes the movie has seemed to latch onto. Some have panned Will's performance as just a poor copycat of Robin Williams' while others have praised it for daring to be different from Robin's with a fresh, hip hop sensibility, while paying homage to the original.
  13. I know people have been looking for new music from Will. Well, we have some... Friend Like Me: Arabian Nights: Prince Ali: Friend Like Me (End Title):
