The framing is excellent, along with the director's ability to capture all the bananas in one still shot, but the character development leaves a lot to be desired. Why are these women thick? Why do they like to shake it like a tableside item? What is it about the booty that makes people say "I like a little warmth on my ladies?"
Overall, definitely an eye opening view on how society values a good hip hop beat and a little j in the t.
I loved that the movie was about what it was about. No pop culture jokes, no random cameos, (not that I don't think things like this are entertaining) it was about a little town filled with Vikings that were battling dragons. The flying sequences were pretty breathtaking and it was a lot of fun to watch in 3D.
First off, I'll say the acting is pretty spectacular. Mo'Nique's transformation is as good as advertised and Gabourey Sidibe is just about as good.
That being said, if I'm being honest, I didn't really enjoy Precious as a whole. I know it's not a movie that you "like" in the traditional sense, but I just felt empty watching the film. I wasn't moved, inspired, nor particularly disturbed (I'm not heartless, but I think I might have been psyched out by everyone who said it was going to be the most difficult movies I've ever seen). It had all the gritty realism in the world, for a world that certainly exists, but few of us actually experience firsthand, but as a film, I wasn't taken by it.
