Big Mommas: There’s A Point To All This!

I’m not going to write a piece about black men performing fat black women on the screen and stage. Frankly, I don’t know enough history, and if you want to read up on the subject I’m sure there are plenty of better essays out there.

Instead I just need to get off my chest what’s been grabbing my attention in these Big Mommas posters. When I first saw the billboard, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me – that because it’s been five years since Big Momma’s House 2 and 3D movies booming, this was the perfect moment for a Big Momma’s House 3D, which actually seemed like a great use of the technology (in that it would be the first of the post-Avatar 3D movies to be so unself-consciously stupid, unlike Pirahnas 3D, which was self-parody).

Alas, not only was it not 3D, the studio has decided to drop the “House” all together in favor of doubling the amount of Mommas who are Big. In the poster shown above, the Original Big Momma, already in her fat suit, is knighting her (his?) younger, possibly BMILFier Momma with a sexier dress than Original Big Momma’s Moo-Moo.

Let’s not forget Big Momma’s also has a subtitle, “Like Father, Like Son” – curious they didn’t go with “Like Momma, Like Son” that would just be way too confusing.

Okay, so Martin Lawrence is for some reason making his son (or stepson, I’ve learned) wear a sexy dress, to his stepson’s dismay.

But this is not what bothers me.

What I’m losing my mind about is the constant need in these posters to show Big Momma’s FBI badge.

It wasn’t always this way. Consider Big Momma’s House 2:

No badge. Back then I suppose it was obvious what kind of hijinx Big Momma might get into. I never saw it, but I bet there was a few dick jokes.

Now however, you won’t see a poster without one. Even in France:

“What??” is right. But I’ll tell you WHY you won’t see a poster for this movie without the FBI badge. Better yet, I’ll show you.

“WHAT!!???!?!” is right, again! Give him an FBI badge, quick, or else what kind of movie is this?!? We need to know Big Momma is a Momma of the LAW, not some hallucinating sex trafficker.

Which, if you think about it, is a way more interesting movie. But not one that would make the top 10 gender-bending movie box office list (spoiler: Robin WIlliams has two in the top three, grossing one-third of a billion dollars.)

(Also, not very shocking, the “Fat Suit” category has much higher grosses – the top 10 movies grossed a total of .5 Billion dollars, which does NOT include DVD Sales)

And THAT, ladies and germs, is why this Honky Grandma Be Trippin.’

Check This! OG Hindu Kush In 3D!!!

Two of Canada’s most respected emcees have joined forces to deliver a full-length LP, featuring the likes of Royce da 5’9” and The Narcicyst.

Two of Canada’s most respected emcees have joined forces to deliver a full-length LP, featuring the likes of Royce da 5’9” and The Narcicyst.

 

With a cover that is genuinely in 3D – each album comes with a pair of 3D glasses – Canadian hip hop artists OG Hindu Kush have produced an album whose art matches the rap duo’s intelligent, in-your-face and intricate word-play rhymes. The three-years-in-the-making album is a testament to this (literally) battle-tested rap duo’s lethal wit and delivery skills.

Both are icons of the international battle scene, Osa having won one of Canada’s most high-profile freestyle battles, “Rip the Mic” in 2003 judged by Talib Kweli, and Loe Pesci being one of the most popular and most feared competitors on the King of the Dot (KOTD)/Grindtime battle circuits, their battles garnering well over half a million YouTube views.

Evoking golden era hip hop, the album’s eclectic beats draw from a number of influences ranging from the West Coast-tinged “How You Like Me Now?” to the grimy East Coast-flavoured “Hell’s Kitchen” featuring Royce da 5’9”.

“We stand behind the music that we make. We believe in our vision and because of that we feel like we are something of a dying breed,” say the duo. “No matter what kind of hip hop it is, if it’s good music then people will appreciate it.”

The album release on Feb. 16 2011 will kick off an international whirlwind for OG Hindu Kush, beginning with a show in Osa’s hometown of Ottawa, then taking off to Europe for battles and performances in Manchester, London, and Paris – suitable for the duo who had the following to say about what they wish to achieve with this album:

 

Two of Canada’s most respected emcees have joined forces to deliver a full-length LP, featuring the likes of Royce da 5’9” and The Narcicyst.

 

“International success. Is that not the point? What’s the point of making music if you can’t take that music out of your own city, and share it with the world?”

The album is available at www.StepYourLifeGameUp.com/Store.

This time, we’re talking about the other F word.

A few years ago, former Pennywise frontman Jim Lindberg wrote the book Punk Rock Dad, about all the trials and tribulations that goes with pairing being a punk rocker and a parent, and dealing with the contradiction of being an antiauthoritarian figure for the world and an authority to your children. Now this same idea is coming to the big screen.

Was This Ever Entertaining?

It’s sortof a basic question of humanity. Did cavemen get turned on by cave paintings? Did people in their middle ages during the Middle Ages (technically teenagers) rock out to loots and lyres? Did anyone ever watch this music video for “Honeymoon in Vegas” and react with something other than “What the fuck is this?”

Phew. A lot of pressure going into the next thousand TCRM posts. Glad to start it off with some Cage.
