Mexican actor and Two-time Academy Award winner Antonio Rodolfo Quinn Oaxaca, more commonly known as Anthony Quinn, Academy Award nominees Samuel L. Jackson and Ruby Dee, Two-time Golden Globe nominee John Turturro, Golden Globe nominee Ossie Davis, and Emmy Award nominee Annabella Sciorra star in this 1991 romance drama film written, produced, and directed by two-time Academy Award nominee Spike Lee.

This film was made with a budget of $14 million and it is loved to this day by the critics with a certified fresh rating of 81% according to Rotten Tomatoes and was also a commercial success with sales of more than $43 million.

Halle Berry plays the role of Vivian.

Like Richard Steven Valenzuela, more commonly known as Ritchie Valens or Golden Globe winner Carlos Irwin Estévez, more commonly known as Charlie Sheen; Anthony Queen was forced to change his name to sound more like an American name or he would die of starvation for lack of employment at the time.

Fortunately for Mexican director and four-time Academy Award winner Alejandro González Iñárritu, Mexican director and two-time Academy Award winner Alfonso Cuarón, Mexican director and Academy Award nominee Guillermo del Toro, myself, and anybody else with a Spanish name; we don't have to hide or shorten or modify our names anymore and that is a step in the right direction.

I don't even need a visa to enter Canada, the tenth largest economy in the entire world anymore.

I just show them my passport and they let me in.

That is a huge step in the right direction and I would like to thank Justin Trudeau, currently the sixty-sixth most powerful person in the world according to Forbes for helping me and others find a better future in other regions of the world.

I suck at building Mercedes Benz.

If you happen to be reading this from Canada and you are a television or film producer and you have a job opening for a screenwriter then let me know.

If you happen to be reading this from Mexico and you are currently unemployed then you should get a passport and fly to Toronto and apply for a minimum wage job at Wal-Mart or McDonald's. (NYSE: MCD)

The minimum wage in Canada is at least $10.50 CAD or about $7.75 USD per hour give or take a few cents.

The minimum wage in Mexico is $80.04 MXN or about $3.88 USD per day give or take a few cents.

How are we supposed to survive with that amount of money? I tried to rent the film Florence Foster Jenkins on Vudu, a Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT) subsidiary and the price was $5.99 or almost two days of minimum wages.

They know I am visiting the website from Mexico or South Africa or Ethiopia or wherever and they could lower the prices to a more realistic figure based on the local economy.

They could also easily check the country where the credit card was issued to prevent consumers from the United States of America and other developed economies access the website with a VPN posing as consumers from an impoverished region of the world. 

I really wanted to see this film before January 8, 2017.

I guess I have to wait until the film is available on HBO (NYSE: T) in six months if I am lucky.

How come the people currently living in developed economies can watch all the films before the Golden Globes and the people currently living in emerging economies has to wait?

NOTE TO JEFF BEZOS: Include Mandarin, Spanish, Hindi, Arabic, Portuguese, Bengali, Russian, Japanese, Punjabi and German subtitles and sell all the films with a Golden Globe nomination or an Academy Award nomination to 40% of the global population as opposed to the current percentage of 5.52% of the global population. There are millionaires in these countries too, you know.

Quarterly profits decreased from $857 million on 6/30/2016 to $252 million on 9/30/2016 and I don't like when that happens.

Clearly, Amazon needs to expand to more countries and hiring ten translators seems like a cost-effective way to do it.

They don't need to build warehouses or a new localized version of the Amazon website.

They simply need to add the subtitles to the video file in the original Amazon website and automatically change the prices depending on the location of the consumer.

It's not exactly rocket science.

Maybe they should hire me as the new CGO (Chief Global Officer) of the publicly traded company.

Chief Global Officers are in charge of turning a profit in foreign currencies like the Mexican Peso but they work independently from the retailers currently selling products and services in these countries like Amazon France.

Back in the day, the guy in charge of turning a profit in Brazilian Reals was the guy running Wal-Mart Brazil.

What if a millionaire from Brazil wants to buy a case of French wine from Wal-Mart France and ship it all the way to São Paulo?

These kinds of business opportunities were extremely rare for retailers a few decades ago but now these business opportunities are the largest ones. Particularly if you are selling digital products like music, books or video games.

I can make millions of dollars for Amazon if given the chance. Unfortunately for me, they don't seem to have the technology to hire people without SSNs. There are people with the right combination of skills, talent, and experience outside the United States of America, you know.

In fact, there are more than 5,600,000 jobs unfilled within the United States of America right now because the companies cannot find the employees they need with the right skills, talent, and experience.

$100,000 a year for a plumber? $73,000 a year for a truck driver? That's just dumb.

NOTE TO DONALD TRUMP: I respectfully suggest you invent two new types of temporary work visas: A P visa for plumbers born in Canada or Mexico and a T visa for truck drivers born in Canada or Mexico and import all those workers from these two countries.

There are currently 1,254,000 people unemployed in Canada.

There are currently 3,445,000 people unemployed in Mexico.

Some of them have to be truck drivers and plumbers, right?

Executive Decision

Golden Globe nominees Kurt Russell, John Leguizamo, and Oliver Platt and Emmy Award winner Joe Morton star in this 1996 political thriller action film directed by Stuart Baird in his directorial debut.

This film was made with a budget of $55 million and it is rated to this day by the critics with a fresh rating of 63% according to Rotten Tomatoes. This number is extremely high for an action film. Critics are usually allergic to this genre and most of them respectfully refuse to watch films with martial artists like Jean-Claude Van Damme or Steven Seagal.

Kicking the asses of Russian villains is also an art form exactly like ballet, capoeira, or parkour.

If you don't like films filled with testosterone then I suggest you give the genre a chance at least once a year with good action films like this one, Run All Night and Non-Stop starring Liam Neeson, John Wick: Chapter 2 starring Keanu Reeves, and Demolition Man starring Silvester Stallone.

Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss worked together in the Matrix franchise.

This film was also a commercial success with global ticket sales of more than $122 million.

Two years later, after the critical and commercial success of his first film Warner Bros. Pictures, now an AT&T (NYSE: T) subsidiary hired him again for the sequel succeeding the extremely successful film The Fugitive starring Harrison Ford with a bigger budget of $45 million.

Again, the film was a commercial success with global ticket sales of more than $102 million.

Halle Berry plays the role of Jean.

Four years later, he was hired by Paramount Pictures, now a Viacom (NYSE: V) subsidiary to direct the film Star Trek: Nemesis with a massive budget of $60 million.

We now know you must never hire a director with zero years of experience in science fiction films to direct one of your biggest franchises, if not the biggest one.

Star Trek: Nemesis was a critical and commercial failure and he never worked in Hollywood again.

If you happen to be a film director and somebody is dumb enough to hire you to direct a film in a genre you have never directed before then you need to hire a more experienced director with at least a couple of films in the genre in question and offer him or her the chance to direct half the film.

It does not matter if your paycheck is 50% smaller. You can always blame the old guy or girl with the Emmy Award nomination if not enough people buy tickets to your film.

You don't want to end up like Russell Gewirtz.

There is a new and extremely more expensive version of the film called The Legend of Tarzan with a massive budget of $180 million. If you have not seen this remake yet then I strongly suggest you include it on your list of FILMS YOU SHOULD AVOID LIKE THEY ARE THE BLACK DEATH.

If you don't have this list on your tablet, phone, and your computer then you should start one as we speak and include the 2016 version of this film starring two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz, two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou, and Alexander Skarsgård on it.

Three years later, Warren Beatty received four Academy Award nominations in the following categories: Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Director, and Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium for his work in the 1978 fantasy-comedy film Heaven Can Wait in association with director and two-time Academy Award nominee Buck Henry and screenwriter and two-time Academy Award nominee Elaine May.
