Check out my movie review for #alleyezonmemovie
from @_lejuicebox - Movie Review: #AllEyezOnMe -----------------------------------
The long awaited movie based on the life of legendary rapper #tupacshakur has been met with mixed reviews. The movie ranked in a little over 26 mill it's first weekend and ranked NO.3 Not bad at all! So what's up with the not so good reviews? From the storyline being shaded, to #jadapinkettsmith saying the portrayal of their relationship was inaccurate, to a publication noting his acting career wasn't discussed and he was portrayed as a victimized good guy that bad things kept happening to. What movie did they watch? Did they want #Deathrow drama? This was the UNTOLD story of Tupac Shakur. In my opinion it took us through events in his life not as a spectator but more from his perspective. We learned about not just the rapper but the poet and activist. (hence the Jada dramatization was to exhibit him as a poet.) It's the UNTOLD story of a man that was destined to be a prolific print in the world. I believe people wanted to see more of the drama and the #thuglife persona that we got in front of the camera painted by the media when he lived. The deemed cocky & arrogant man who spit on cameras and gave reporters the finger (the activist) @Alleyezmovie focused on the creative behind the persona, the child born with a last name already on the FBI list, raised and molded by a black panther activist of a mother. The man who valued loyalty & trusted those around him, his black people. Not realizing the people giving him the tools to destroy himself was his own. You get to learn the mind of a man who can go from "Keep Ya Head Up" to "I Get Around".It's the UNTOLD story of how he became so vocal & fearless. We all saw the drama televised. This was about what we didn't know. Many scenes touched me and I won't give too much away, but that scene when he waited in the hallway for Kidada to call him back in just broke me down to the ground. This was not a movie about Death Row, or Tupac's beef, it didn't highlight his movies and everything else we already knew of him, it highlighted why he was the icon he became in his short 25 years!
