TMNT-out-of--the-shadows--poster

 

Now people, not all mutants are humans. Some mutants are turtles, some mutants are ninja, heck they can even be teenagers. To save time and effort Out of the shadows features mutants that are all three – oh and like pizza too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Characters of Color: Tyler Perry

Tyler+Perry

 

He who has the gold makes the rules.

Haters gonna hate, and no one knows that better than Tyler Perry. A respected playwright, director, and actor; who has created works that have crossed the media lines of stage, screen (movie), and set (TV); and created one of the most recognizable (and hilarious) characters ever – Mabel ” Madea” Simmons; is constantly being the focus of cheap shots. Why? Because of his popularly? Because of faith/views being in his works? Because they cater to a certain audience? Well if that’s the case people a lot of media would be guilty of the same ‘crimes’. Tyler Perry    is a character of color because his characters have color. Why can’t you have a deranged elderly woman trying to waste a person for cutting them off on the highway and then call 911 after the deed is done. Why can’t a media as wide and a varied as the visual deal with concepts of the spiritual without people turn into jerks about it, why can’t an excellent actor like Tyler Perry try new roles without being pre-judged beforehand? I don’t know people, I really don’t, but I a simple gamer must ask you to not drink the hateraid – the taste is terrible on the palate.

WTF/FTW – Madea’s Witness Protection movie

 

Tyler Perry is known for two thing the movies he acts, directs, and produces in and the Mabel ‘Madea’ Simmons character he portrays in said movies. Now for many people those works (and the character) are hit & miss, but in this latest chapter simply titled ‘Madea’s Witness Protection‘ the very outspoken Madea must take in the family of a financial wizard because they’re being hunting by the Russian mob.  This is interesting enough considering the usual focus of Madea movies, but add to the fact that the financial wizard is Eugene Levy of American Pie fame and all I got to say is WTF/FTW.
