I just saw a trailer for Beyonce's latest cinematic offering, which spurred me to type up this post. I forgot it's not been released over here yet. It's not too late to stop the UK release altogether is it?!
Obsessed to put it simply is Fatal Attraction all over again. This time it's a successful black couple being targeted by a delusional blonde - that's all.
I went to see this with the Mr 3 weeks ago. we were both aware after seeing the trailer that the entire storyline had been depicted to us quite clearly in 90 seconds flat but off we went one Sunday night to go and see it anyway.
I still can't put my finger on where I've seen Ali Carter before, but she plays her role very well. Her actions even rose a laugh out of the audience a couple of times. Maybe, like me they were just laughing at just how ridiculous the plot was getting as the minutes ticked by.
As a vocal artist I do love me some Beyonce and many a drunken evening with the girls has included the Get Me Bodied dance at some stage. With the exception of 'Work It Out', 'Bootylicious', 'If I Was A Boy' and 'Halo', I've either liked or loved every other DC or solo track that she's released as a single. She knows how to bang out a classic track that'll have everybody shocking out in the clubs but as an actress I'm just not feeling her.
Hasn't she made enough money already?! She's everywhere!!! Isn't it about that time in her career that she takes a break, goes and has a baby or just chills and enjoys her millions?! Usher disappears every couple of years, then comes back with a wicked track, drops a killer album and then goes off to chill in his hilltop mansion again.
Beyonce, B, Fierce One or whatever it is you want to be known as these days, take note!
I swear since she stormed onto the scene when I was about 17 she's constantly been in my face!!
Idris Elba you'll recognise (or maybe you won't) from The Wire and American Gangster and he's tolerable and acts as eye candy for his adoring fans, though there's one scene which made me seriously question his acting ability. It was so bad I thought it was an out-take that had accidentally been put in! The fact that he's my friend's cousin bears no difference to my opinion. This film won't be winning any Oscars!
The last 10 minutes of the film had me rolling my eyes so hard I almost gave myself a headache. Perhaps like me when you see the advert on TV you'll think "Hmmm, ok it's predictable, but it looks like it might be good" and off you'll trot to the cinema too. Don't say I didn't warn you.
