Magic, sparkles and Strap-ons!
The love story angle, the part with the cholos and the brother is a little cringe. I think what they fucked up on with this movie was they didn't focus on the music or important things that happened. Selena was poised to be big in America and was already big in Mexico. I think they focused too much on dumb things with the family and not the overall bigger picture. It's a shame really because Selena was killed right on the cusp of fame.Selena (1997)
I had no idea who Selena Quintanilla-Perez was prior to watching this. This is a biopic, about said person, portrayed by Jennifer Lopez. After listening to a few songs on Youtube, it turns out that Jennifer Lopez does sound like Selena, however it did make me question, is this really about Selena, or Jennifer Lopez showcasing her talent? It has that typical drama, biopic feel, with saturated yellow colours and fancy borders around the frame with flashbacks and stock footage shown. Selena was portrayed as an influential person that was famous for her latin music. The love story in this made me gag and some of the acting was iffy. 5/10
