The Terminator started showing in 1984, the year I was born, and it was one of my childhood most watched movies, every evening at the age of about 10, 11 yrs, I just had to watch Arnold Schwarzenegger do this thing and I never got tired of watching him.
Well, the production and quality of the movies speaks for itself, who can dispute what James Cameron can do? He is a brilliant film director and producer and it can be seen in the work he has put in the greatest movies of all times that he produced; Titanic,The Terminator 1 and 2, and more recently the Avatar... all great movies.
Does anyone remember the movie 'White Chicks'? Yeah that one that starred the Wayans brothers and Terry Crews? Hilarious right? Am a fan of comedy movies once in a while. It is not always good to take life seriously all the time. We need time to crack and laugh, and boy oh boy, White chicks was a nice comedy.
One movie that totally inspires me everytime I watch it, now I can't even tell you how many times I have watched this movie, Akeelah and the Bee. I love the storyline, I love the actors, Keke Palmer (Akeelah) starring alongside Laurence Fishburne (Dr. Larabee).
You will have to watch it to know what I mean ;-)
Well, you may be wondering why am blogging about movies on my birthday, I mean why not? Three great actors in these three movies share a birthday with me! Yeeeei, I mean how cool is that?
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terry Crews, and Laurence Fishburne were all born on July 30th. I feel honored to have been born on the same day with such great guys.
I will end with a Maryanne Willianson's quote that am taking with me in my next year, and this quote was read by Akeelah in the movie 'Akeelah and the Bee'.
Hope you find it inspirational!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world. There is
nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't
feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us;
it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”
