FREAKY FRIDAY II

Good morning, my neighbours!
Sounds familiar, right? I thought so. Who can forget that part when Akeem stepped out on the balcony to shout that greeting in the United States but in an African Style? Reminds me of Olamide’s charade at the head… but I digress.

Just in case you were thinking of calling Olamide to report… (brings out shotgun) “Freeze you diseased rhinoceros pizzle!”

I want to say a big thank you to Mide for bringing up this movie because every part of the movie has a talking point. I speak with all boldness when I say there’s absolutely no one who has seen “Coming to America” that has not viewed it more than once. I’m sure I’ve seen it over ten (10) times and that’s seriously understating it.

No jokes.

The second movie I’d like to hear you guys discuss the talking point is a movie that chilled me to the bones. A dark, psychological thriller which featured the brilliant Al Pacino and the bland Keanu Reeves. I’m sure a lot of you know the movie I’m talking about but for any avoidance of doubt, the movie is “Devil’s Advocate.”

That movie troubled me for years.

So for this week’s FREAKY FRIDAY, we have two great movies that were classics.  We’ll be discussing these two movies. Our favorite parts, our favorite quotes and whatever it was that made the movie(s) special to us.

So ladies and gentleman, I present to you “COMING TO AMERICA” and “DEVIL’S ADVOCATE”

  3. Eddie Barzoon! Eddie Barzoon! Ha! I nursed him through two divorces, a cocaine rehab, and a pregnant receptionist. God’s creature, right? God’s special creature. I’ve warned him, Kevin. I’ve warned him every step of the way. Watching him bounce around like a fucking game. Like a wind-up toy. Like 250 pounds of self-serving greed on wheels. The next thousand years is right around the corner. Eddie Barzoon… take a good look, because he’s the poster child for the next millennium. These people, it’s no mystery where they come from.

    You sharpen the human appetite to the point where it can split atoms with its desire. You build egos the size of cathedrals. Fiber-optically connect the world to every eager impulse. Grease even the dullest dreams with these dollar-green gold-plated fantasies until every human becomes an aspiring emperor, becomes his own god. Where can you go from there? As we’re scrambling from one deal to the next, who’s got his eye on the planet? As the air thickens, the water sours, even bees’ honey takes on the metallic taste of radioactivity… and it just keeps coming, faster and faster. There’s no chance to think, to prepare; it’s buy futures, sell futures… when there is no future. We got a runaway train, boy. We got a billion Eddie Barzoons all jogging into the future. Every one of them is getting ready to fistfuck God’s ex-planet, lick their fingers clean, as they reach out toward their pristine, cybernetic keyboards to tote up their fucking billable hours. And then it hits home. You got to pay your own way, Eddie. It’s a little late in the game to buy out now. Your belly’s too full, your dick is sore, your eyes are bloodshot and you’re screaming for someone to help. But guess what — there’s no one there! You’re all alone, Eddie. You’re God’s special little creature. Maybe it’s true. Maybe God threw the dice once too often. Maybe He let us all down.

  4. I thought you were giving us a review ni

    Anyway, I can’t remember much about Devil’s advocate. At that time I had a crush on Keanu Reeves, and could not bear the torture of watching him suffer. I should watch the movie again, now that the crush is over.

    But Coming to America… Hmmmnn. I have no idea how many times I’ve watched that movie, and I can watch it a thousand times more. I have many favourite quotes, but let me share a few;

    “Let them wait! I’m talking to my son”

    Akeem: Do you have a favourite food?
    Bride: Yes!
    Akeem: What is your favourite food?
    Bride: Whatever kind of food you like

    “If you are really a prince, I’ll marry you”

    “Tell me you didn’t love me when you thought I was a goat herder”

    “There’s a rat in the room. A big rat!”

    “Taste the soup…
    Where’s the spoon?
    Ahan, ahan, ahan” (dumb joke)

    “Someone to cheer, someone to miss when you’re away or here. To be loved, to be loved. Oh what a feeling, to be loved…”

    I have to stop now. Let me find the movie and watch

    1. Hehehe… Nice one, babe. You go, girl! Enjoy it. I must also state that I never stated I’ll be the one reviewing the movies I put up. It’s a collective thing. We all share what we like, don’t like and best quotes about the movies I put up. That was the deal. I appreciate the comment, babe.
