“It’s been on my mind lately how Zee, you always supported me.
You vouched, I will never forget that and how you guys accepted me for me.
And pace I love you too, you slept on my couch and I’ve been thinkin’
About the time when I slept on the floor at The Outhouse,
Rhyming’s all we ever wanted to do and regardless how life has turned out,
Inside I’ll, I’ll always be an outsider.” - Eminem
my review of 8 mile;
it's hard to review bc there's 2 sides to everything. u could say "seeing my idol on screen for 2 hrs, love the movie!" but it can be argued that u shouldn't be biased to call the whole movie good solely based on one's presence. anywho here we go
starting off w things i like, them picking famous/talented ppl working on it (like director curtis hanson & producer brian grazer) was smart. idk what they would've done w other unexperienced workers like em. famous names acting like brittany murphy was also good
one of the most distinctive features of 8 mile is how you can get familiar w the life of em, his character & many ppl irl as well. it can be a challenge to portray the issues correctly, but ofc em did live there himself
i enjoy the soundtrack/music choices here. no songs get dramatically on suddenly. they're there softly w out many lyrics whereas the end is emphasized w all the powerful, loud, lyrics. 8 mile definately has its moments
for the negatives, the movie appeals @ fans who are already there & some would just worship marshall shitting for 2 hrs. the storyline is sorta bland; brabbit has a dream + bad life, loses to a rivarly team, rises above & wins. it's predictable + has cliches
most of all, it could get boring. i dont mind slow movies if they leave u mindblown/amazed. this didnt. some scenes are a bit long, i.e the start of him jumping. you'd usually want a good first impression, but it was just kinda awkward. overall the movie couldve been edited on some parts, to make it tighter
the boring part comes w how there isnt that much stuff: you have unnecessary fights w yelling 3/4 of the movie, rest is close ups of them staring somewhere being wannbe deep. w the violence, u do want some action, but many times it seemed like theyre just wannbe thugs screaming at each other
overall if em wasnt in it, yall wouldn't call it the "best movie" bc that's delusional n makes it seem yall havent seen any good movies. some have fr said "em is the best actor" based on this & it's fucked up bc he acted himself, not that spectacular ok?? the movie's ok, not a masterpiece, but couldve been worse. 2 times watching it was enough. 6.5/10 😤
i wasn't sure if i should write this on here but since i'm bored idc. you have to know i have a crush on a girl who goes to my college/university (whatever). last friday, we had math together but she got out like an hour before teaching circuit. (btw, i haven't even talked to her yet idek her name 😪) so the cool guy i am, i also went out bc girls before education, you know where it's at 😣 (i'm kidding for the ppl who do not get simple jokes). i saw her at the central station, i even waited for her to come, although i wasn't even sure if she'd come lol. after like 30 minutes i saw her walking to the entry. in the first second i was kinda happy but then it just hit rock bottom for me. first of all, i had no idea on how to approach her so i was pretending not to be noticing her (pls don't why). after a while she went back (to the city probably bc her train was late idk). during that i waited again for her telling myself 'guts over fear you pussy'. i waited like another 15 minutes oh and i think another girl layed eyes on me cause she was staring these 15 minutes nonstop at me lol but that doesn't matter. then, finally, my crush came. i was walking right behind her but.. i just couldn't talk/approach her. every time i wanted to, my heart was racing. i even followed her until she was entering her train (sounding like a creep rn). so... she was in her train and i was heading to mine, feeling like a pathetic loser 😶. i'll probably see her this week again but still. the fact that i didn't have the guts to talk to her. so yea last friday was like a 1/10 day for me cause i just felt idk not really sad but angry. i guess i felt angry w/ myself. and i still didn't approach her yet. how would you approach someone you only had eye contact with?
