so last night i watched the whitney houston movie.
it was about 12am or so.
i won’t lie,
i went into it with extremely low expectations.
i figured if it was terrible,
i could turn my head and go to sleep.
well these are my thoughts…
i have to say that arlen escarpeta,
the wolf who played bobby brown,
was absolutely amazing in his role.
he is a really great actor.
did arlen not look like a young and fine allen payne in “new jack city”?
…or was that just me?
arlen’s body was also insanely crazy.
yaya dacosta was simply just “okay” as whitney houston.
she had some of the mannerisms down…
the love scenes tho!!!!!
i imagined thats why whitney was attracted to bobby.
he gave the impression that he to’ her ass up every chance he got.
for lifetime to show was i was thinking>>>>>>>
that one scene where bobby was blowing that random’s back completely out.
and was it me or was there a glimpse of peen:
i also thought deborah cox did an amazing job with the vocals.
so i always compliment first before i go in.
lets go in…
that movie was entirely about bobby brown.
they should have called it:
“we got something in common:
bobby brown’s chronicles of dating whitney houston”
for a movie titled “whitney”,
all i got was “bobby”.
the movie focused too much on him.
it came off like bobby brown helped write this script,
as well as assist angela bassett in directing it.
it also made him look like this “saint” who followed whitney around.
from what i’ve researched on him,
he had a gigantic ego that the movie didn’t touch on.
he burned a lot of bridges.
now i have heard whitney allegedly got him into drugs,
but when he turned down the coke she offered him in that one scene:
what i took from the movie is they were both troubled people in love.
i also got drugs can ruin your talent.
it is all a sad truth into her legacy.
i know they couldn’t pack her whole life in,
but they didn’t focus on how she was discovered.
“who the hell is whitney?”
“how was she discovered?”
“what was her family life like?”
they didn’t show how she grew up singing in the church.
hell they addressed robin,
but didn’t address the alleged down low relationship.
they just jumped into how she met bobby.
i left the movie not really knowing anything about whitney.
well other than she was a raging adhd cokehead,
who changed her hair every day,
and liked fuckin’ bobby brown every chance she got.
i don’t know of all the inconsistencies the true whitney fans brought up,
but i don’t think the movie captured the essence that was her.
am i the only one who thought this?
lowkey: it was much better than the aaliyah movie.
i hated how it ended tho.
she on stage singing “i will always love you”…
…and bobby crying in the corner.
turn screen white.
its a wrap.
it left me feeling very underwhelmed.
oh and i really really really thought that was mary j blige as cissy houston.
