NOTORIOUS: Movie Review

… After Watching Notorious

In an attempt to protect the decency and reputation of such a remarkable talent I am making a public service announcement that should be taken quite serious: DO NOT WATCH “NOTORIOUS.”

If you want to learn about Biggie Smalls listen to his classic debut, “Ready to Die,” watch YouTube videos, look him up on Wiki, ask your hip-hop friend but whatever you do, don’t watch this movie. You know how the movie is never as good as the book? Well, “Ready to Die” is Biggie’s book and “Notorious” is some inadequate jerks horrible attempt at interpreting that.

This movie is a joke, it is one of the worst representations of an artist to ever hit the big scream. The acting is bland, unbelievable, passionless and inaccurate. The screen play could have been done by a child and the musical recreations are nothing short of disgraceful. The Notorious B.I.G. was an integral part of hip-hop, one it’s premier ambassadors. Anyone choosing to take on that responsibility should do so with a very clear understanding of what’s at hand. To think that some curious moviegoers and youth will be seeing this in hopes of learning about Biggie is saddening. If you know anything about Biggie, don’t watch this movie, you will be scard for life.

How do you make a lame movie based on one of the coolest cats to ever grace rap music, I don’t know but congratulations to executive producer Sean Combs, you did just that. Hip-hop on hip-hop crime.

Now let’s all just listen to some music and forget this movie ever happened…
