While flicking through the channels aimlessly last night I caught “Whats Love got to do with it” the movie based on the life and rise of Tina Turner. I remember watching this movie during my vacations after my 10th grade exams and distinctly remember feeling extremely moved by Angela Bassett’s uncommonly honest portrayal of Tina Turner. While watching the movie I distinctly remember waiting to come across the scene where she fights to retain Turner as a part of her name in court since that was Ike Turners last name and she by the time she decided to walk out of the more than hellish marriage she was already known around the world by her stage name TINA TURNER. When Laurence Fishburne joined the cast of CSI after all those years I still remembered him as the actor who played Ike Turner. If I choose to describe his performance in one word it would be chilling.
I watched Dead Man Walking too recently for the first time. The movie is a masterpiece and deserves to have an entire post credited to it. Will get to it soon.
In the meantime trying to lay may hands on “Waiting to Exhale”
