I am not a movie buff, I am beginning to sound like a broken record. Now I have to start watching movies because of the Movies, Music and Sports (MMS) podcast. During the course of the week a friend posted the poster of the movie, The Harder They Fall on his WhatsApp status and the moment I saw Idris Elba in it I was excited. I am a big fan of Mr. Elba.
I was going to watch it that night when I got home from work. On getting home after sorting all that needed to be sorted, I lay on my favourite couch to turn on the Television and switch to Netflix. I got discouraged when I saw that the movie was slightly over 2 hours long. I ain’t going to watch that, especially on a weekday.
I decided to watch it today at a friend’s place. I didn’t regret it and it didn’t feel long. Nice movie going by my not liking this sort of movie genre. I think they call it Western. Lovely dialogue, costume was on point as expected and the cast looked perfect but what was it with the fastest person to draw out a gun bit? It was nice though. Oh by the way, Regina King is still a HOTTIE.
One of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s songs was sampled in the movie. Way to go Naija.
8/10 for me and yes Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter, the god MC was amongst the producers.
