Scenes We Love - November

I decided to do another take on my Old Skool Joint and throw some movies into the pot. These three scenes need no particular introduction. First scene is aiight, but skip about two minutes into this and you get some classic (fill in the blank). You don't have to be a woman to enjoy the brilliance, the magnificent, the 'realness', for lack of a better word, of this Yale School of Drama graduate. She makes you BELIEVE her character. Few people are able to transcend the ability to do this for me (there are others - Joaquin Phoenix, Denzel, Giancarlo Esposito, Gary Sinise, Don Cheadle, amongst the few who DO). Hey, I don't know what I love more: "You're the Mutha ***** IMPROPER influence!" or "Tramp BIOTCH!" Gotta Love it. Enjoy!

After this movie, I dated a girl who's aunt changed her liscence plates on her Car to read "EXHALE"

I dont think Ive ever wanted to commit a random act of vandalism that bad ever since.. To your point about Mrs. Bassett, I'll go to my grave and leave it in my will that she got screwed out of the Academy when she played Tina..(some can argue this roll as well)

@ Jaimie:

How thoughtful of you to go back and read posts. Thank you. I sent you a personal email. As you know, (and I'll let everyone know as well). My blog is modeled after Jaimie's (More of an interactive approach).

Talk to you soon:

At Smoothie: That whole Waiting to exhale thing got a little embarassing in the mid to late nineties with all of that I am woman hear me roar stuff.

And as for Angela. She was robbed. At point blank range. And for a woman that played a deaf mute in a movie, too (Holly Hunter in "The Piano" won that year. I'm fully on board with you.
