6:52 am
studio on good day d.c. for an f hour couple weeks ago, he wasas fantastic, did the weatherid t with tucker.thuc one thing i respect about aut marlon wayians is he makeseak these very small low budget bud films for under 5 million mil bucks and they end up making a ton of money. mon. he's an amazing promoter.romo this film in particular 50ar shades of black is actual alctua parody obviously of "fifty o"fiy shades of grey" and what'ses o interesting about the movie istv it actually does a really goodlo job of calling out why "fifty w shades of grey" was so ridiculous.lous and marlon wayians has alwaysasw been a very smart comedian com when it can comes to parodyingai elements. i love don't abmember menacebere to south central whilehile drinking your jewels in theewel hood. i loved scary movie.cary the problem with the 50 shadesh of black is that some of the jokes do lose steamose st throughout.ugho the first 20 or 30 minutes areea absolutely hilarious and then ae there's sprinkles of really rea great moments throughout. tough the other problem is he goes a little too far at times.le t there's moments where itnts whet becomes almost too gross orss or

6:54 am
i had read rumblings about it.bt i never really heard manyman details. the story line that steve you're talking about is 1952 is off the coast of cape cod oca there were two oil tankers t that were destroyed by a a blizzard and this amazing amang rescue team on a small littleit boat went out and saved 32 sed lives that night.hat n it's an uncredible story. sto casey affleck is in the storm, s chris pine but as you says you steve it's hard to captureaptu that storm quality withty effects that look realistic rli and at times they do but at a times they don't.. and some of the script was athew little weak at times but the beauty of the movie is thatoviet there is a consistent intensity and i thought chrisug pines did a good job as well.s w and again, it could have been better and this is the case, th steve, where the story was t sty better than the overall film.il i gave 83 and a half off five.ff which i think -- by the way, --e this is very important, steve. e do not see in it 3-d. 3 the 3-d makes the movie completely murky.ur
