    It'll be absolutely awful. Anthony Mackie is in it as Tupac, so I may see it for that on DVD.

    Hard to get a feel for anything in that teaser. It basically plays like a rap video. This is not a good thing.

    I came in expecting this to be a remake of Hitchcock's film.

    With a CGIed phoenix-risen Notorious B.I.G. in the Claude Rains role.

    I am skeptical that there is much about this man's life story that I will find edifying.

    As did I. I'm much more comfortable with someone walking over Biggie Smalls' life than I am Hitchcock's film. Does that make me a bad person?

    I'm more interested in Stallone's version.

    Seriously.

    It's very very horrible, sir. It's one of those things we wish we could disinvent.

    That's what I thought too, but according to IMDB it's Completed.

    If it does, I think most of us here are damned with you.

    Derek Luke is playing Sean "Puff Daddy/Diddy whatever the fuck his name is now" Combs.

    Ehhhhhhhhh..........

    And there's a new trailer now. I'm still skeptical (it IS coming out in January), but interested at the same time.

    But Anthony Mackie is 2Pac!
    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Which is really the only good thing about that movie thus far.

    But that's a very good thing.
