the second half of the bobby brown story came on last night.
i had popcorn and rented out the full row on my couch.
my initial thought after it was over…
“WHAT IN THE ENTIRE WORLD????…”
i can’t even.
so it was really disjointed to me.
i’m type emotional,
but had no tears over whitney or bobbi kristina deaths.
if it was just a regular movie,
whitney’s portrayal would be similar to mo’nique in “precious”.
bobbi kristina was kinda just “there” like she was in real life.
another thing that annoyed me was the time line.
it skipped ahead months and years without no kind of clue.
one minute i’m hearing “sweet thing” by mary j blige (’92),
and the next,
i’m hearing “lost without you” from robin thicke (’06).
not to mention,
after a while,
bobby brown started looking like a stuffed ham.
they couldn’t put a fat suit on woody?
it’s like they gave up and ran the rest of the story into a wall.
they allegedly omited the times he allegedly abused whitney too.
not only that,
this “alicia was my savior” story line was really prominent.
whitney was allegedly the one who “ruined his life/career”,
while alicia swooped in (
from her years of stalking) to save the day.
no matter how much they painted her in pretty “racially ambiguous” colors,
she still looked like an idiot to me.
no way am i getting with someone who:
– drove my car drunk and parked it on my hedges
– showed up all types of hours intoxicated trying to open my front door
you gotta be kidding me.
( x leolah brown muhammad )
is dragging bobby over it on “facebook” too:
i will font that bobby lived a life.
he experienced all kinds of loss throughout his journey.
i know what that feels like so i relate with that aspect.
the other stuff came off like pure fan fiction to me.
this doesn’t take away from woody mcclain‘s acting tho.
he makes me feel a new kind of lust.
he did a good job with getting bobby down.
gabrielle dennis “second half” of whitney was better.
even donshea hopkins,
who played “reina” from “power”,
was excellent casting as bobbi kristina.
everything else was a hit or miss with me.
up next: the alleged “jodeci” biopic.
lowkey: i’m so glad they got this ICONIC scene down…
