Shantaye Bailey, creator of TayeBailey Media held her first event this year sharing a mini documentary on a veteran Queens DJ, DJGMoney. Shantaye Bailey had a very successful event with attendees eager to take photos, watch the documentary and network with a crowd of like minded individuals. 

This documentary was honest and really explained the effort and energy necessary to be a DJ in the music industry for over 20 years. The best part of the documentary are the experiences behind DJGMoney’s career.

Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart Night School Is The Most Hilarious Movie I’ve Ever Seen!

Have you ever laughed so hard you felt like you were about to gag or choke? Have you ever cried so many tears that you Thank God you’re wearing waterproof makeup?

Of Course, Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart are funny, great at what they do, well known actors and comedians but my God this movie was hilarious! The punchlines in Night School are perfect and the characters are completely relatable.

Night School was the opening night movie at the Urban World Film Festival at the SVA Theatre. Cast members Tiffany Haddish, Fat Joe and Kevin Hart took the stage to greet the audience along with Director, Malcolm D. Lee and Producer, Will Packer.

My favorite part of the night was hearing Malcolm D. Lee and Will Packer speak about their humble beginnings, process and success.

Fat Joe, Anne Winters, Romany Malco, Yvonne Orji were some of the cast members in Night School. I literally couldn’t stop laughing. This movie is cohesive and kept my intention in its entirety. I laughed every 5-15 minutes.

Although, the movie is funny there are scenes that are also meaningful and encouraging but they were added in so discretely and seamlessly that the message became even more impactful.

There’s not much I can say without spoiling the movie so I’ll leave you with this.

“Everyone gets a second chance.”

 

Den of Thieves Movie Review

Den of Thieves will play in theaters on January 19th featuring an all star cast in the robbery themed movie. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Gerard Butler, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Pablo Schreiber all had leading roles in the movie and created an impactful experience at the movie premiere.

The premiere took place at the AMC Theatre in Times Square. Refreshments such as popcorn, cupcakes and other delicious goodies were handed out for free. In addition, Curtis Jackson, Gerard Butler, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Pablo Schreiber all came to the movie theatre to briefly talk about the movie. This is a movie you do not want to miss because of the unexpected and suspenseful moments.  Now let’s get into the movie without a spoiler.

The criminals target the Los Angeles Federal Reserve Bank. Keep in mind this bank has yet to be successfully robbed. There’s a little bit of funny moments mixed in with pity. I will not tell you the character that I felt bad for but I will vaguely describe the character roles. There is the bad guy who would like to sabotage the thieves and then there’s the bad guy who thinks he can outsmart his enemy.

When you watch this movie, you will undoubtedly have to choose between the outlaws and the regulators. I personally was routing for the outlaws but let’s be honest that’s the exciting part of the movie. We want to see the bad guys win.

Regardless of the amount of robbery movies in the history of film making, Den of Thieves is a stand out movie. Many robbery movies such as Takers and Set It Off are telling the story of individuals that are hardly criminals. In Den of Thieves, the criminals are great at committing the crime. They understand the risks and rewards but choose to play with their freedom.

Make sure you watch the movie and leave a comment on your thoughts.
