Slept-on Movies Vol 4: Mob Edition

by bILLY sHAKESPEARE AKA bILLY fABLE



Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead (1995)

So there's a guy by the name of Jimmy the Saint. What a name, right? He got out of the mob racket by retiring him but his dreams don't seem to be paying any dividends. Jimmy's smart, cool, and quietly tough. One day his paraplegic boss decides to bring him back for one last job. The money his boss offers lulls Jimmy back in. Jimmy gets his old crew together, everything seems to be okay. Until the job goes awry and everything and everyone in and around Jimmy seem to be falling apart. Andy Garcia stars, Christopher Walken plays the boss. Was hailed by critics but long forgotten by the people. Check this one out. Got an interesting love story in it too (don't they all?).




10th & Wolf (2006)


Tommy comes back from Iraq (after whooping his CO's ass) to find out that his childhood friend and brother are knee, leg, waist, shoulder deep in trouble, to say the least. Balancing his love for his friends and his feelings of betrayal, he tries to help. Sort of. By the way, Tommy's compadres don't know that Tommy is undercover (but we do from the beginning, so don't worry I didn't spoil anything). Inspired by a story from the real life "Donnie Brasco", this movie has that classic tale we all love.








SPECIAL BIT:

We Own the Night (2007)


Since we're on the topic of classic tales, I thought I'd add this movie that is destined to be on this list. It's a shame, really. Mark Wahlberg and Joaquin Phoenix star as two brothers on seemingly opposite sides of crime war. What's interesting about the movie is that the lines don't get blurred throughout the movie, they get clearer. You'll know what I mean. This better should become a classic, we'll hope it does. Directed by James Gray, the same guy who directed THE YARDS, the movie I showed earlier. WATCH THIS TONIGHT, IT'S IN THEATERS!!!

Kanye West the new spokesmen for Fendi?

Story By: BrooklynBape23


For Kanye Its Fendi



So it seems evident that Kanye West "The louis Vuitton Don" is now a spokesmen for Fendi, in the photo above Kanye is snapped performing with fellow Chi-Town rapper Lupe Fiasco. Kanye is unmistakably wearing a lavish Fendi hoodie in the traditional brown and tan color design.



Below shows Kanye with the Fendi logo carefully crafted on the side of his head. . . . . Has Kanye gone too far with the comedy? I’d say with a unpretentious smile, YES

Denzel Washington The Real "American Gangster"?

:*:MaRtY::*::mCfLy:*:


Denzel Washington has a "Pay as you play" contract in which he gets paid to be in a movie no matter if the movie makes it to the big screen or not. His going rate is twenty million a picture.

Denzel’s new movie "American Gangster" is set to be released November 6th, but wasn’t always a go, it seems that the Director of Training Day was all set to direct on American gangster with Denzel Washington starring, but for creative differences the movie fell all the way through, still Denzel had already signed on and received his twenty million, now a couple of years later director Ridley Scott has come across the script and decided to put the movie into production, Russell Crowe became interested, and Ridley Scott decided that Denzel Washington was still the man he needed to bring out the roll.

So in case you missed the point Denzel rolled in "40 MILLION" to star in a movie that isn’t even out yet. Nice work Denzel… congrats Denzel Washington you are an "American Gangster"

Below Heart of the City produced by Kanye West for Jay-Z's The Blueprint in 2001, also he sampled a cut from this track on "Good Mourning" which is featured on "Graduation". Heart of the City is the song playing in the backround of the trailer below, enjoy!

Where Did McD's Get The "Im Lovin It" From?

:*:MaRtY::*::mCfLy:*:

In august 2003 McDonalds rewarded Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo of the Neptunes a cool 6 Million for their hit song "Im Lovin It", the in suing media campaign has obviously been a hugh success with Timberlake becoming an even bigger star after leaving *N’Sync in addition to McDonalds continued domination over the fast food industry the past four years.

Cool fact: im lovin it was initially supposed to be featured on Timberlake’s debut cd but was cut from the original version; it was later released on a special version of the disc and has a remix with Snoop Dogg.

Who The hell Is Asha?


:*:MaRtY::*::mCfLy:*:

Who the hell is Asa? she is a Nigerian (French) artist with an Jamaican sound, no pun intended but the sounds I am hearing are totally in sync and prepared to be a number one hit (at least in my world). Her lead single "Fire on The Mountain" from the forth coming album "ASA" is exactly that FIRE!!! Check out the incredible creative video below also her album drops October 16.........pick it up.

Britney Spears Loses Custody of Her Kids


:*:MaRtY::*::mCfLy:*:

The honorable Scott M. Gordon a superior Court Judge has ruled that that Britneys ex-hubby Kevin Federline will take custody of Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, starting on Wednesday/10/2/2007 and this is "until further order of the court."

so it seems like maybe Chris Crocker can try and get K-Feds lawyers to leave britney alone. This is bad news for Brit because i really had faith in her turning her ship around, and yes i am a Britney fan......MTV shitted on her, and now K-Fed (whom she should have known better about.......

In case you havent seen the VMA performence


that performence followed with a hugh media fallout on britney, which lead to this


So now what i am wondering, what we are all wondering is, if Chris Crocker has something new under his flamboyant sleeve?
