First, I don't know what critics you are talking about (very important) and there are plenty of actresses and actor that have received various nominations and awards that plenty do not agree with, check it out. I didn't say Tariji did a lousy job. I still believe this was not Tariji Henson's greatest performance. What does 3 stars tell you anyway? And who gave the stars? To me, 3 stars is real close to 2 stars.

If box office gross was the deciding factor to greatness then we wouldn't need awards. We would simply have to look at the money each has earned. Hey, my money was part of the millions, so what does that tell you? ..."All money ain't "good" money.

Yes, I and "some" critics do not see eye-to-eye. I wouldn't even want to look through their eyes.
See, that's the point. I think it's important for a movie lover to find a critic that they can relate to. Some men like women with big asses. Some prefer top heavy women. Others like nothing but the breast meat ...white meat.

Have you ever paid attention to the little blurps on the movie covers. On every single movie there's something good being said about that movie. What does that tell you. It tells me that "good" ain't always good.

Now, you know my boy Thump is the best book critic that I know. He does not compromise his integrety ...imo. However, he has recommended books that I didn't like. Yet, I was able to understand where we differed. If you can put a face on the critic, I then would be able to research his history of reviews and then voice a better opinion about his selections.

Yes, I may be on the other side of the fence than "some" critics but the movie still stunk ...IMO.

I don't care if the lead characters were green with purple poo-poo dots, I look at the movie. I do however believe that there or "some" that just love "black" movies because they can relate to the cultural events of the movie and therefore hold them to a lesser standard.


I hold all movie to a very tuff standard and "NOTORIOUS" fell way below the mark.

Check out the movie and come back and holla.
