Finishing the Basement Into a Theatre Room

Gone are the days when the basement’s only use is to store old stuff. You can’t believe how other people spend a lot of money with their basements. I personally love the basement not only because I go down there when I want to relax but also, it’s probably the most flexible room in the house which allows homeowners to convert it into pretty much what they want. Most people nowadays choose in finishing the basement into a theatre room. Well I can’t really blame them because the basement has good characteristics that make an awesome movie room because of the absence of natural light. In addition to that, sound proofing is not a problem anymore so you can be assured that watching movies in the basement will always be a wonderful experience for you and your family. Also, a basement home theatre adds significant value to your home.

Finishing the basement into a theatre-like room is not that difficult. You just have to decide what color scheme and what furniture to buy and of course the obvious equipment you need like TV, DVD or Blu-Ray Disc player and surround sound speakers. In-ceiling speakers are the best if you want to duplicate an actual movie house. Since the basement is a separate part of the house, you can actually choose not to follow your house’s overall theme. Whether you want to use bright and bold colors or warm and subtle, it’s completely up to you.

After deciding on the color scheme and the equipment, the next thing to do when finishing the basement into a theatre room is purchasing furniture. I got so excited when I found out that you can actually buy those seats that they use in theatres! Home theatre seating comes in a variety of design, fabric and colors. You can even buy those seats with a common arm. You can choose from micro fiber fabric to micro fiber suede, to faux leather and premium leather. Be creative and add movie posters, they’re pretty cheap and some are sold for only $40. Put up your favorite movie posters on your walls to mimic the theatre look. You can also install wall lamps to complete the look. Have fun in designing your own theatre room and trust me this will definitely pay off in the end.

Movie Review: Peeples

“Peeples” is the latest dramatic comedy from notable filmmaker Tyler Perry. Craig Robinson of “The Office” fame takes a sharp turn away from his easygoing character, Daryl, and plays the film’s hopeful romantic lead, Wade Walker. Wade is in love with a successful and beautiful woman named Grace Peeples, played by the lovely Kerry Washington. Grace is a daddy’s girl through and through, and her deep attachment to her family is an important part of her personal identity. Wade recognizes and appreciates this in spite of not having an equally close relationship with his own family.

The story begins with Wade’s efforts to propose to Grace ending up in a constant series of frustrations. In fact, he begins to think his beloved is purposely sabotaging his attempts to ask for her hand in marriage. What’s more, in spite of her close relationship with her family and her father in particular, Grace has yet to introduce Wade to her family. Understandably nervous, Wade sets out on a well-intentioned if poorly executed plan to crash the annual Peeples family reunion to ask for Grace’s hand in marriage while surrounded by her beloved family.

As can be expected, the plan goes horribly awry. The Peeples are a close-knit clan of wealthy and beautiful professionals and overachievers. David Alan Grier plays Grace’s father, Virgil Peeples, a man who’s climbed his way up both the professional and the social ladders to rest in his seat as a federal judge. Following in her father’s footsteps, Grace is a successful attorney working with the United Nations on a variety of important international affairs. The rest of the family is sprinkled with socialites and professionals who have excelled in their fields to the point where the Peeples family reunion could easily be the scene of a major press conference.

Wade begins to lament his humble profession as a children’s entertainer and teacher. At first, he makes the mistake of trying to fit in with the illustrious Peeples clan, which of course results in disaster. Wade has the clarity of an outsider’s view, so he’s able to see beyond what meets the eye and right into the flaws of the seemingly perfect family members.

“Peeples” is fraught with tension as Wade struggles to navigate the new and intimidating world of his hopeful in-laws. Craig Robinson plays a refreshingly optimistic and proactive role that sharply contrasts with his character Daryl from “The Office.” Fans of Robinson will enjoy seeing him in the shoes of the romantic hero, which he wears quite well. Wade Walker is a relatable leading man, possessing neither the career path nor the physique viewers would expect of a hero. Instead, he gets the girl through his charm, his humor, and a nurturing spirit.

One of the most relatable aspects of the movie is Wade’s ability to see through the perfectly crafted veneers of the Peeples family. The major moral of “Peeples” is no family is perfect, and it’s the relationships that bind families together, even more than their collective successes. The supporting cast is charming, with plenty of comic relief via Malcolm Barrett, playing Wade’s brother, and Melvin Van Peebles, starring as Grandpa Peeples. Wade’s brother comes in as both a form of backup and a liability, and Grandpa Peeples serves as a welcome reminder of the family’s humble beginnings.

Tyler Perry’s regular character Madea is notably missing from his latest film, an absence that could be seen as a blessing or a curse depending on the viewer. Madea’s over-the-top antics would leave a comedic vacuum if it weren’t for a charming and witty supporting cast.

Another winning aspect of the film is David Alan Grier’s performance as Virgil. The overprotective dad is forced to take a journey toward self-enlightenment in addition to realizing his family is changing. He eventually learns that letting go of his adult daughter doesn’t mean losing her but rather gaining a new member of the family. While he is reluctant to get to know Wade at first and would rather summarily judge him as he’s used to doing in his day job, he finally concedes to the fact that everyone is entitled to a fair trial, sons-in-law included.

Fans of Tyler Perry movies will be satisfied with “Peeples” despite that it’s missing Perry’s iconic character, Madea. They might even come to love the Peeples family as much as Perry’s regulars do. With plenty of family drama, hidden secrets, and lots of laughs, “Peeples” is a sure induction into the Tyler Perry hall of fame.
