Memphis had a Hollywood-style world premiere of the dream child of Memphis own Julius Lewis: N-SECURE. It was a who's who of Memphis including the majority of the cast members. This is one of the first authentic movies that I have ever seen with a real taste of Memphis as a backdrop. I knew the street scenes, the restaurants, the office buildings, and many of the extras in the movie. Unlike the TV and other film projects based on Memphis but shot in New Orleans, Atlanta, etc.
Julius Lewis made sure he got as many scenes and names related to Memphis as he could down to the Stax jacket. I have never been so proud of Memphis since Isaac Hayes did 'SHAFT!'
N-Secure was really well cast and the acting was right on. The plot is one that many women can relate to. Fellows I am telling you now don't let these women see this movie and you don't get to check it out. This movie will be talked about and discussed all over the country. As a matter of fact, I think EVERYONE who is from Memphis or ever-lived in Memphis should check this film out.
On Friday, October 15 I am going to see this film again and I encourage ALL of my fellow Memphians to do the same. Let's make Friday, October 15 MEMPHIS FILM DAY! Let's help to make this a #1 movie the first week out so that we can show the world that MEMPHIS REPRESENTS!
