16 Blocks

I actually went to the theatre to peep a film. A rarity indeed. The flick was pretty good. It didn't hurt that BlackStar member, Mos Def represented BK quite well. I believe he and Talib used to work in a bookstore on Flatbush Ave. He was an undergound MC from a few years back, now he has become mainstream, but he still spits conscious lyrics. It seems that more hiphop heads are embracing Hollywood. I don't believe Mos has visions of becoming a rapping Blair Underwood (that would be Will Smith), very confident that he'll maintain the street credibility. I wonder how long it took him to master that voice? I won't say anything more about it.

The producer made sure the film had its fair share of notable actors. Looking at an old overweight Bruce Willis, sparked images of Sylvester Stallone in CopLand. Dirty pigs always seem to be a good topic for a film. 16 Blocks certainly wasn't a bad film, but I think CopLand was much more riveting.
