Chi-raq: Film Review

With issues such as gun control and Black Lives Matter permanently in the conversation nowadays, it is a no brainer Spike Lee wanted to make a film highlighting them. I fully support what he’s done with Chi-raq and appreciate his intentions, I just didn’t love how the story was told.

Big Pics: Superbowl Special

Who cares about the football?! Last night’s Superbowl was all about Beyoncé’s half-time show performance. And she KILLED it! She was amazing as usual- putting 110% into her performance.

She could have sang a bit more but, given the amount of dancing she did, it isn’t surprising that she didn’t sing the entire time. Damn, her dancing was on FIRE! She’s clearly back to where she wants to be physically and has worked hard on remembering the routines since the birth of daughter Blue Ivy last January. Also, her stamina is incredible. I would have been out of breath after one song but she was singing and dancing constantly for 15 minutes!

She looked amazing. She was wearing a skimpy leather catsuit that showed off all of her legs and a generous view of cleavage.

She was channeling Sasha Fierce when she strutted down the stage to the Crazy in Love intro. She mainly stuck to old classics and didn’t touch anything from her last album 4. I LOVE the use of visuals on Baby Boy and when she was joined by Destiny Child (Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams) onstage for a shortened rendition of Bootylicious and Independent Woman. They also helped her sing and dance to Single Ladies- which was the best part by far!

Jennifer Hudson and the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School sang a powerful version of America Is Beautiful in memory of those who died in the school shooting in December last year.

Justin Timberlake performed a couple of old school tracks before singing Suit and Tie with Jay-Z onstage. This was his first live performance in five years.

Here’s the video for the whole of the half-time show:
