Looks good but nothing took my breath away.June 28, 2020 at 8:33 pm #1203556338
Haven’t seen the new trailer yet, but I don’t think we’ll need to keep our eye on Marlon Wayans. We’ve already seen Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler get rejected by awards bodies when they gave acclaimed performances likely due to their previous immature comedies (though in Sandler’s case last year, he had an extremely crowded field), and I don’t imagine that Wayans will manage to get much farther than the two of them as I don’t think he’s been in something well received since Requiem for a Dream.June 28, 2020 at 8:51 pm #1203556351
Dreamgirls 2: Effie’s Revenge
I didn’t see an ounce of Aretha in that performance.June 28, 2020 at 9:29 pm #1203556391This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.June 29, 2020 at 12:59 am #1203556614
One of two things is about to happen.
Either Jennifer Hudson is gonna go 2 for 2 at the Oscars…
…or she will be the Taron Egerton to Renee Zellweger’s Rami Malek

Excited for this. I liked Marlon in Requiem. Maybe this’ll be his time to shine.
I just love movies. And awards.June 29, 2020 at 7:55 am #1203556889
I don’t understand this casting decision at all. That was just Jennifer Hudson singing Respect. Nothing else. We’ll see…June 29, 2020 at 8:17 am #1203556928
She’s a great singer, but a bad actress, and so I can’t see how this will work as a movie. I don’t think this will work for her a second time round, beloved as Aretha is.June 29, 2020 at 8:45 am #1203556963
This is the first one besides TENET and Soul that screams Oscar to meJune 29, 2020 at 8:50 am #1203556977
Jhud is this year Felicity Jones.June 29, 2020 at 10:28 am #1203557174
Looks like we’re getting a worthy biopic of a unique musical genius. It doesn’t look like a visionary masterpiece but it doesn’t look like an embarrassing disaster either.June 29, 2020 at 11:02 am #1203557249
Looks like we’re getting a worthy biopic of a unique musical genius. It doesn’t look like a visionary masterpiece but it doesn’t look like an embarrassing disaster either.
The fact that it isn’t a disaster from the teaser means it hopped over hurdle one. Now if critical response is warm and favorable — all else they need is box office — not sure how that’ll work?June 30, 2020 at 11:25 am #1203558858
We’ve seen Jennifer Hudson sing every Aretha Franklin song in the book. I’ll pass.Not now
