Tied Up and Binded

Last while reading Anthony's blog, I noticed that he would be in Atlanta for the Spaghetti Junction Urban Film festival (there is also a picture of Anthony on this site). Click here to find out what Spaghetti Junction is to us Atlantans. I had never been to a film festival, and since he is a fellow blogger I figured that I would have to attend. So, I left a comment on Anthony's blog telling him that he could be sure that I was there.

For some reason, his movie The Ties That Bind was being shown at 10am on last Thursday morning. I happened to be off and at home that day, so it wasn''t a problem for me to attend. But I really think that they could have given him a better time slot in the evening. There weren't many people there, but I am sure that the ones that were there enjoyed it.

I must tell you that the movie was excellent. Normally when people think of an independent or limited budget film, they think negatively about it. But that was not the case here. I throroughly enjoyed the film from beginning to end. The story line was excellent and the plot was realistic with no dull moments. But what really had me going was that EVERY actor fit the character that he or she portrayed. I must commend Anthony on the casting of the movie. My favorite character was Debra. You could easily tell that this woman was an actress with some experience.

Now, there were technical issues with the sound, but everything else was on point. The sets were very realistic and I later found out the secrets from Anthony about how the sets were designed and set up. What made me appreciate this movie more was the conversation that I had with Anthony later about how much work that it took to make the movie. A brotha like me doesn't even think that I could do something like this. So I hae to give Anthony his props on even doing a movie.

And lastly, the movie comes out on DVD on May 9th. Check out Anthony's blog for detail on ordering.

Awwe Thank you Norris!!!!...I really appreciated that you were there and YES I would have appreciated a better time slot!!..especially since word spread about the film to even the cast of A Different World...but hey I was glad to have the audience that I did have :)

I am going to pass your comments along to the cast...especially Nicole Pettis that portrayed your favorite character "Debra" and your right no other actress could have played her at all!!!

I loved seeing your reactions to the film especially the ending I thought to myself...I got him!!...and that made my day.
