12-17-2006-19.jpgRemember last year this time? I was all about “DREAMGIRLS” which I – by the way – happened to catch on HBO last night a la its cable premiere. (I just happened upon it. I promise!!!!). But Anthony and I have enjoyed some other films in the mix as well, including “DIRTY LAUNDRY” ( www.dirtylaundrythemovie.com/ ) as it FINALLY released in New York City and Los Angeles. Though I’ve written about “DIRTY LAUNDRY” since before it went into principal photography, I’m still learning more about it. For example, my Morehouse brother Korey Washington was the Art Director for the film. His loving wife Tracey, who says she reads “A Day in the Life of Riley: Pop Culture & Possibilities” all the time, reached out to me with that tidbit. I last saw Korey at our 15-year-reunion from Morehouse in May of this year. CONGRATS KOREY! And though there was some controversy regarding the New York City run of “Dirty Laundry”, the opening night screening we attended featured some of the cast, including friend Ericka Watson.DIRTY%20ERICKA%20PATRICK.jpg If you haven’t seen “DIRTY LAUNDRY”, please consider viewing it along with the other great films – featuring African Americans – out there. Anthony and I went to a special screening for “The Great Debaters” (Directed by Denzel Washington) - www.thegreatdebatersmovie.com/ . A special screening with the cast is this Wednesday coming up. I will attend and get what pix I can for my next entry. Meanwhile, it’s official! “The Great Debaters” WILL be our family movie on Christmas Day! Last year was - of course - "Dreamgirls"!
