              Just saw If Beale Street could talk.. That scene of Him talking about being locked up for something he didn't do was so powerful and terrifying. From the sound of his voice to the way it was shot of him close up in shadow with that eerie music...You could really feel the pain and terror he went through in prison.

                    Forget just "animated"- "Spider-verse" is one of the best movies I've seen in the last five years.

                          Agyei Baruti it’s cool he got his own style. It’s so weird to hear him talk. Kinda sound like a surfer hippy dude man! Especially after Paperboi and Widows and his different transformations

                                          lime light The reference was when he said that he twisted a towel around his head like a helicopter. He was referencing a song named Raise Up that Petey Pablo, the rapper, made. :))
