Half Time is Game Time

Last night, I saw a really refreshing feel-good movie called DRUMLINE. This movie could be considered a tribute to all the band geeks out there as it highlights all the hard work that goes into becoming a championship marching band. The story unfolds around a kid (Devon) from Harlem who is recruited to play in the band at a mostly black Atlanta University. The movie shows his transformation from a troublesome kid who plays music (but can’t read it), to a wonderful young man who embraced the band leader motto: One Band, One Sound! It truly is an entertaining movie from beginning to end. So I highly recommend.
Below is a listing of the main characters that make the movie worth seeing:
Devon: Nick Cannon
Laila:Zoe Saldana
Dr. Aaron Lee: Orlando Jones
Sean: Leonard Roberts
Jayson: GQ
Ernest: Jason Weaver
Charles: Earl Poitier
Diedre: Candace Carey
Running time: 118 minutes. Rated PG-13.
Movie is directed by Charles Stone III who is best-known as the director of those riotously funny Budweiser “Whassup” commercials.

  1. Speaking of nepotism, are cast members Earl Poitier and Shay Roundtree related to anybody famous? 🙂

  2. I think the 2nd movie will be great because the first one was good i hope that the movie line will keep the line movie of making this show for example mostly ever musis person will look at it or even the no music person will look at because someone said that it was good to them and you need to see it for yourself.
