Today is a day we remember someone who touched so many lives through music. An artist who past away before her prime and had endless potential. An icon. An inspiration to millions around the world who have heard her story, with tragedy touching many more. Today we honor, and remember, and celebrate the life of Selena Quintanilla Perez, known more commonly to as her millions of fans, as just “Selena”. Watch the video as celebrities remember Selena, in many different ways. World Famous people like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Former President George Bush and more. I never met Selena, but her personality and music will live on forever, because she was not just a famous artist, but her personality made it seen that you’ve known her before. Rest In Peace Selena, you are missed around the world, and this post is just for you. It has been 20 years today since the death of Selena, and we will continue to play her music for years to come.
Remembering Selena 20 Years Later
The Visit – Urban Kings Movie Review
Yesterday, Urban Kings was invited for the special screening of the movie The Visit, the newest movie by M Night Shyamalan, creator of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs. We got to the screening, checked in, got our wristbands, posters, and raffle tickets, and found our seats. Going into the movie, I was a little skeptical about the movie, since the past M Night movies haven’t been so great (to me). But The Visit had really surprised me. It was not only just a scary movie, but Shyamalan added different elements to the movie, bringing a warp twisted comedy styling to pair up with the horror film. And the formula worked for me.
The story follows a brother and sister traveling to their grand parents house to spend the week with them while their mother goes on a trip. They have never seen each other due to their mother and grandparents relationship, or lack of one. The kids get picked up at the train station and they start to notice that their grandparents are not the typical grandparents. Their behavior is odd and starts to get even weirder as time passes. Until they realize what exactly is going on, then going even further into the story to find out the meaning behind the trip.
The story is shot through two cameras the kids use, seeing everything they want you do see, as they are filming a documentary about meeting their grandparents for the first time, and seeing the house and town their mother was raised in. It had the audience interaction with many “ohhhh’s” and “noooo’s” and screams thoughout the film. I thought it was among the top M Night Shyamalan movies, along with Sixth Sense and Signs, and I would give it an overall B- rating.
The Visit releases on September 11th, 2015 at theaters nationwide.
