Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
The Family That Preys - ** (4/10)
- 2008 drama starring Sanaa Lathan, Cole Hauser, and Kathy Bates, and directed by Tyler Perry. Tyler Perry, i feel, is a very weak director who gets stuck in weak clichees and one-dimensional characters. It is predictable, generally dull, and very made-for-TV style. Everyone delivers their performances just fine, it is just the writing and directing is pretty bad.
Notorious - *** (7/10)
- 2009 biopic on the Notorious B.I.G., based around his rise to fame, and his struggle to keep things civil in the East Coast vs. West Coast war. It was pretty interesting, considering i know nothing about any of these guys, except who they are and what happened to them. Pretty big list of characters, Biggie, Puffy, Lil Kim, Faith Evans, Lil Cease, and even Pac. Jamal Woolard is EXCELLENT as Biggie, gets down the voice perfectly. My main problem with the movie is it sticks to a lot of the facts, but doesnt flesh out the story and really work on the emotional heartstrings. This is a movie that deserved to be an over 2 hour epic. However, this was still a good movie.
Breathless - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 1960 French film noir starring people you won't know so i wont bother looking up their weird names. This is considered a classic by a lot of people, it is on Eberts great movies, and i found it to be a very interesting movie. I liked it, then i didnt, then i did, then i didnt, but by the time it was over, i really liked it. It centers around two pretty vain people, one of them just wants to be like Humphrey Bogart, one of them kinda just wants to live in their own little cutesy world and is very indecisive and unsure about her relationship with the other main character. It is quite interesting to watch, there will be quite a few who will find it boring but if you enjoy film noirs, it is recommended for you.
cool and smooth, that's how i play.
