“A musical adventure and a visual spectacle for the ages, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is a wholly fresh and spirited family holiday event,” Netflix said.

“Set in the gloriously vibrant town of Cobbleton, the film follows legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle (Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker) whose fanciful inventions burst with whimsy and wonder. But when his trusted apprentice (Emmy winner Keegan-Michael Key) steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his equally bright and inventive granddaughter (newcomer Madalen Mills) — and a long-forgotten invention — to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within.”

The musical also stars Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose and Justin Cornwell.

Antebellum Starring Janelle Monae: I Just Couldn’t Follow It

No images

I’ve been trying to watch Antebellum since it became available on Video On Demand last week. I kept starting and pausing, but decided to finish watching it this weekend.

According to the synopsis, successful author Veronica Henley (Portrayed by Janelle Monae) finds herself trapped in a horrifying reality that forces her to confront the past, present and future — before it’s too late.

I just couldn’t follow or sometimes stomach the film. From the horrific opening watching a black woman being shot, roped and dragged by a horse back to a plantation was a bit much for me.

From thinking Janelle Monae was a slave living in the past to all of a sudden waking up in the present at home next to her husband and daughter… I was like what just happened? Was she dreaming? Nope…. I think.

Next we meet her girlfriends (I enjoyed Gabourey Sidibe) and after a girls night out, she’s kidnapped by the same plantation owners we meet in the beginning of the film. I was thinking they figured out how to project themselves into the future to force her back into the past. Nope! It wasn’t until the end of the film (maybe about an hour in) that I realized “sorta” what was going on.

On a sidenote, I was loving janelle Monae’s acting and that orange jumpsuit and ponytail was everything to me!

The film was originally suppose to release in theaters back in August, but due to COVID-19 was instead released on VOD. It cost me $19.99 to watch it.

Election Day is Nov. 3rd, register, volunteer, but most importantly……vote!

Amy Coney Barrett & The Secretive Community “People of Praise”

No images

Donald Trump’s announcement that he’s nominating devout Catholic, Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, has brought attention to a secret community “People Of Praise” that she reportedly belongs to.

According to its website, the group, which was founded in South Bend in 1971 and has 1,700 members, describes itself as a community that “shares our lives together.” “We read Scripture together.” ” We share meals together” and “support each other financially and materially and spiritually”.

Amy Coney Barrett

 In 2017, The New York Times published a story highlighting Ms. Coney Barrett’s connection to the People of Praise. It reported that members of the group are assigned same-sex advisers who act as life coaches, helping members discern important life choices. The article reported that male mentors are called “heads” and said that the female mentors were called “handmaids,” though it later noted that the term handmaid had been dropped by that point, in favor of “woman leader.”

Barrett has said that she is a “faithful Catholic” but that her religious beliefs would not “bear in the discharge of my duties as a judge”.
