THIS IS MY PRE-REVIEW: THE HELP
This is SO Forrest Gumpy with ‘The Help’ characters sitting out on that park bench as Tom Hanks (portraying ‘Forrest Gump’) did back in 1994. I am looking forward to seeing ‘The Help’ because as the Creator of: SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature™ - How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009 (that has already won 2 awards and it is not even out on the market yet), I have a vested interest in the Topic. My Endeavor, SKiN™ has built a looming groundswell via my unique promotionals the last 2.5 years; therefore, it will be interesting to see how DreamWorks Studios portrays the Black & White Situation (that many of us we sweep under the rug – Persian or throw-rug as it depends on what a family can afford).
IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT: We are now living in a very volatile era where civil rights may appear ‘civil’ on the outside with a ‘Black President and all,’ but the number of hate groups has never been this enormous, growing or pressing. Movies usually portray life as it should be…let’s hope a message is here that ‘HELPS’ (for lack of a better word) and shapes all our futures as my 7-part spec movie script & books do – no matter what SKiN tone we find ourselves in.
MY SUGGESTION: An acronym for HELP should be created to further advance the theme of this movie. BTW: The bottom line is: Forrest Gump is/was my favorite movie. Does ‘The Help’ have that kind of mesmerizing appeal to rank and rate up there with him?
