in theaters

Friday, September 11, 2009

going to see this? i'd love to read your review. i always say im not going to watch tyler perry movies when they come out. i see the preview and im like "nope. i wont." somehow i've seen them ALL.

over a friend's house
: hey let's watch this.
me: damn, everyone is like 'yea'.

out of town w/ a group of friends and spot nearby theater
: why dont we go see that?
me: well, looks like i got no choice

and sometimes i'm just genuinely interested based on friends' reviews and i'll watch online or my parents buy it on dvd.

this one, i want to see b/c i LOVE MJB's non-acting ass and Taraji is pretty good plus she's from the area.

aside from individual actors, i do enjoy Tyler's getting increasingly better casts and storylines/scripts. i love watching a talented person's progression.

hahah I posted on this too. I will be watching this tonight. I like Taraji and seeing that CSI guy in a different role is nice. I hope he gave MJB like 1 or 2

I'm not going to be able to do it. I was sitting around with a group of friends and determined that while Tyler Perry's movies always have a message, he is 51% of the reason that people think independent women are too headstrong.

EVERY educated, independent female character he has, has emotional problems or a really big chip on her shoulder. She's either "I'm the baddest and I don't need a man" or "I'm SO sad I don't have a man."

I can't support that. My grandma can watch his movies all day long and I respect him as a business man, but I can't keep watching scripts that give inaccurate, if not completely stereotypical portrayals of strong, independent and single women. (Note, those are three different categories)
