Being Common is pretty cool... Except when you're NOT Common. John Ridley, who are you wearing? "Common."

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" directed by John Ridley *** in 3D Im very mixed about this film, has some great moments and some not so great. If youre a huge fan of Cecil B. Milles 1955 Version, you might be too. A lot is left to verbal description, and certain things are not emphasized. Christian Bale playes Moses, his performance is excellent... But you dont see him floating down the Nile as a baby ,when The Egyptians were killing the first male born child of each Jewish family. He shows up at the begining with his thought to be brother, Ramses,, played very well by Joel Edgerton. and the story is evolved in a much different way than earlier version. You dont hear God talking to Moses at the burning bush, or at the Top of Mount Sinai, giving him, the 10 Commandments.. Instead a beautiful young boy is used as the God Figure,,, You see Ben Kinsgsley as Nun, the head Jew, who attempts to warm and transform Moses, and Tuya, Moses pseudo mother is played by an un recognizable, Sigourney Weaver. Yes you do ...

Two men (Scoot McNairy and Taran Killam) offer him a two-week job as a musician, but they drug Northup and he wakes up in chains, about to be sold into slavery.

The obituary notice for my friend, John Ridley -while it cannot begin to describe his kindness, his joy of life or the many facets of his unique personality, I think it expresses what was important to him in a wonderful way: "On Saturday, April 12, U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer John Walter Ridley Jr. set sail for new horizons, navigating by the stars to his new home in the heavenly kingdom. A graveside service will be held at Christ Church Parish Cemetery on Saturday, April 19, at 2 p.m." Fair winds and following seas!
"SXSW: A Jimi Hendrix movie without Jimi Hendrix music?" his directorial feature debut Jimi: All Is By My Side, John Ridley attempts the seemingly impossible. By zeroing in on the year before guitar giant Jimi Hendrix (played with grace by Outkast’s Andre Benjamin) skyrocketed into fame, Ridley — who just won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for 12 Years a Slave — tells the man’s story without the aid of his legendary music. (Hendrix’s estate refused, like it did with past directors such as Paul Greengrass and the Hughes brothers, to grant rights to the music.) Asked how Ridley will battle the reflexive disappointment Hendrix fans might feel about the prospect of a biopic without “Hey Joe” or “Purple Haze,” he says you simply don’t. “If there are folks who just want the music, there are record stores and they should absolutely go out and do that,” said Ridley in anticipation of the U.S. premiere Wednesday night at SXSW. “You can’t battle folks who come in with a certain mind-s ...

Watching the Academy Awards was an illuminating experience this year. It really took me by surprise how many minority groups were represented across the board. This years honorees, Lupita Nyong'o, Idris Elba, Steve McQueen, John Ridley, Alphonso Cuaron (first Mexican to win best director) and our host Ellen Degeneres and films like Dallas Buyer's Club, Long Walk to Freedom, and of course 12 Years a Slave, paint an accurate picture of the world as we know it. The content of the films produced this year show that a great shift in the American consciousness has occurred. I am honored to be a part of this "New Renaissance" of free thinkers and creators.

Bill McGowan: Oscar Acceptance Speech Awards For those of us who displayed the ultimate stamina last night and braved three-and-a-half hours of glitzy *** hum, here is a recap of those who distinguished themselves at the microphone while holding their Oscar: The Miss Malaprop Award goes to Cate Blanchard for telling Daniel Day Lewis that receiving the award from him only "exacerbated" the honor. Perhaps a Thesaurus in the dressing room is in order. The Freudian Slip Award goes to Alfonso Cuaron for calling the executives at Warner Bros. "wise guys" instead of smart men. The Grace Under Pressure Award goes to Lupita Nyong'o for an articulate and enchanting speech in her very first time on the Oscar stage. It was a thing of beauty. The Humility and Class Award goes to John Ridley for paying tribute to a female screenwriting mentor from years past for the editing she did on his sitcom scripts. His emotion was entirely genuine. The Queasy Cutesy Award goes to the songwriters from Frozen who proved beyond the ...
John Ridley has had tension with every director he's worked with. 1st David O'Russel on 3 Kings and then Steve McQueen for 12 Years. Hmmm
MONDAY, all day in LA ... The morning after. Call it an Oscar hangover but last night was very satisfying given an event that is usually very disappointing. .. The best Academy Award night for me happened in 2002, when Denzel Washington,and Halle Berry won for best actors, Sir Sidney Poitier was given the Life Time Achievement Award and Whopee hosted. Now that was a night I'll never forget. So, a dozen years later another night to be proud of, Congrats to Lupita Nyong'o, John Ridley, Steve McQueen, and everyone associated with 12 YEARS. Needless to say how monumental this moment, this accomplishment is. Feeling a sense of pride and inspiration this morning mostly for the Academy for recognizing the work, the talent,the history of America's horrific past. Just hope it doesn't take another 12 years for a night like this. Hey, 12 years. Hm. - LL
Oscar observations: Jarad Leto and Lupita Nyong'o gave awesome acceptance speeches. Pink can really sing! Didn't know that. Bette Midler can really sing! I knew that. June Squibb has aged gracefully; she was charming. Liza Minnelli and Kim Novak? Just made me feel sad. I have become a Pharrell Williams fan; loved his music and his shorts. John Ridley called himself, "a kid from Wisconsin," while walking the red carpet. Darlene Love was precious when she belted out "His Eye Is On The Sparrow," in place of an acceptance speech. Harrison Ford acted like he didn't want to be there:( Me? I'm glad I watched. I had fun. And, I'm looking forward to seeing "Nebraska," "Her," and "Philomena." I missed those .
The 2014 Oscars in numbers: From the award show's running time, to how much the goodies in each nominee's gift bag cost, everything you need to know - in digits. It was the best of years, it was the worst of years. At times, the 2014 Academy Awards felt painfully lifeless, with less atmosphere than “Gravity” and fewer laughs than “12 Years a Slave.” Yet at times it was also very moving, thanks largely to the vivaciousness and honesty of winners such as Lupita Nyong’o, director Steve McQueen and writer John Ridley. Here are the numbers that matter from this year’s Oscars ceremony… 210 – The running time, in minutes, of this year's ceremony. In other words, about half a Martin Scorsese movie. 7 - The number of Oscars won by “Gravity.” 3 - The number of casting directors employed to cast the three actors we see on screen in "Gravity." 70,000,000 - The amount of money (in dollars) Sandra Bullock will reportedly make from starring in "Gravity." 506 - The number of times the F-word was utter ...
