I know some of you are wondering why the blog has not been updated. Well, I have to admit that I had some trouble updating the page, plus we have had such a great response on facebook that we decided to explore other options. So, now, we are creating a webpage instead of using the blog page that will be much easier to manage. I do apologize for not posting an update on the status of the blog page. When we have the webpage up, we will definitely let you know. Until, then, any questions or comments can be posted on our facebook group page or you can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your understanding and I hope to see you at our next event.
Love, Peace and Soooouuul of Cinema!

2oo9 is coming to a close and I just want to tell all of our Soul of Cinema Movie Review family....THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We have had some very good times this year. From our very first meeting in my home watching the movie Cover to eating fried fish and greens at Sadie's listening to the soulful poetic lyrics to For Colored Girls to ending this year at the Highland Mills Cafe watching This Christmas. And we brought the house down!
When Soul of Cinema was just an idea in my head I had no idea that the people who supported this idea so would touch my heart. You guys have been my support and my inspiration and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
And to top it all off, one of our members, Charles Rorie, put together this video of our last meeting. He told me that he wanted the world to see us through his eyes. And he felt that the song, Lioness on the Rise, was appropriate to describe the ladies in the group. I certainly agree! This video brought tears to my eyes. I saw us smiling and beautiful. And these pictures take me back to memories to previous meetings and I can't stop smiling. Thank you Charles for your creative appreciation. There is no other like you, believe that!
And there is no better group of people in this world than my Soul of Cinema family. And you better believe that too! I hope you enjoy the video and if you like it please post a comment!
Love, Peace and Sooouuul of Cinema,

Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned
staring LAWRENCE FISHBURNE
If you have ever been incarcerated and was faced with the challenges of creating a new life in the free world then you would understand the plight of Socrates Fortlow (Lawrence Fishburne). Always Outnumbered is a film adaptation of the novel by the same title by Walter Mosely.
Socrates plays judge and jury as he protects his community and fights social and economic prejudice as an ex-con and also finds himself worthy of being loved by a beautiful woman (Natalie Cole). Other talented actors in this film are, Cicely Tyson, Bill Nun (Radio Raheem from School Daze), Issiah Washington (Dr. Preston Burke from Grey's Anatomy), Paula Jai Parker (Hustle and Flow) and the ever so smooth, Bill Duke. Um, um, um. This has got to be one of the best dramatic films I have seen of Lawrence Fishburne.
Come on out and enjoy the fun!
