    Heard of this movie? Pimp wants to become a rapper, ends up making it big. I'm pretty intrigued because Terrence Howard is in it, and he's a pretty dope actor. The trailer and the clips I've seen from the movie online look pretty good, although it won a lot of film festival awards and I've heard the movie's even better than the trailers make it look. Anyone seen it yet or know people that have?

    Yeah I thought the trailer was pretty good, but I just talked to my friend who saw it the other day, and he was raving about how cool it was and how great Howard was.

    The trailer and shit they show every 3 seconds on mtv makes it looks like a fucking horrible movie. Probably the worst of the year.

    i've only seen the trailer once, and that was at the theatre. a large majority of my friends are highly involved in the hip hop scene so it hits pretty close to home. plus i've wanted to see more of taryn manning on the big screen. :)

    I just can't imagine that's the case, I mean the film has been cleaning up all sorts of awards at film festivals all over the country, so whether it's a cool story or great acting, I'm thinking it's gotta have something good going for it.

    I hadn't heard about it doing well at film festivals, but if so, that's pretty good. Looked like another "8 mile" or some shit to me though... not really interesting to me, but I dunno, I might look more into it.

    I have seen the trailers on MTV and the guy playing the main role looks nothing like he would be an MC. He just doesnt look the part at all.

    I saw some 10 minute long section of the movie that was played on MTV, it will be horrible. Thats just me though.

    I'm just not buying that it's bad. I've seen a couple clips online, and they look fine. It's hard to tell from clips, but it's got such an interesting mix of actors and it's like 90% fresh over at Rotten Tomatoes. I just have trouble believing a movie getting such awesome reviews isn't going to be solid.

    looking for my avatar
    The guy's name is Terrance Howard. He is a solid actor, really good in crash. Seems like this part will fit him well.

    He might be a good actor but he just doesnt physically look the part but that is just my opinion.

    meh..all i think of when i see terrance howard is big mommas house :rofl:



    He was good in crash, but IMO that movie was way too weak and predictable...completely cheezy, like a disney movie-undeserving of all its attention.

    Howard is not bad. Altho' he's miscast. He was great in Crash (I gotta write a review for it on my blog), and fit the role nicely. However I can't imagine him being a pimp or a hustla rapper. Film got seriously acclaimed in Sundance. I saw the trailer it looked ok. I'll definately watch it once it comes out on DVD.

    It was directed by John Singleton, the dude that did "Boyz N the Hood." Although he hasnt done much since, he is definitely capable of putting out a good film. Im gonna check it out.

    Yeah, Boy'z in the Hood was badass. John Singleton can definitely make some good stuff, sounds like this might be his return to glory.

    Well, everyone has different tastes I guess. You guys judge it on the trailers, I'm eager to see it because I've read a bunch of good reviews, heard good things from friends, and am curious why it won so many awards at film festivals.
