    Got a movie/scene you want to complain about? You can do it here!

    Obviously, I'm issuing a spoiler tag for this, so read at your own discretion.

    Lemme start with "When the Bough Breaks" (2016)

    Summary: John and Laura's surrogate mother, Anna, becomes dangerously obsessed with John. (Think "Obsessed", but the white girl's pregnant).

    I honestly had higher hopes for this movie because of the surrogate mother angle on the stalker-in-love story, so I was pretty let down by it for the following reasons:

    1. John and Laura really weren't interesting. I love that they're successful black people, but they could've been a little...less than perfect. They didn't seem to have many, if any, character flaws that could've made them relatable.

    2. Anna went from being like a schoolgirl living her fantasy to psycho stalker/murderer overnight. Like John and Laura, she didn't seem fleshed out at all. Even though they tried to set her up by having her murder her boyfriend, Mike, it fell flat because he was too unlikable to sympathize with. Speaking of which, they tried to make it seem like some big mystery who was attacking him when Laura hadn't even met the dude, and John wouldn't even press charges against him.

    3. Mike should've went to jail after beating Anna - yes because domestic violence is bad, but also because beating her was the most useful thing he did. The second most useful was being a corpse. I know he had the master scheme to collect more money from John and Laura, but the same scene it was brought up, Anna decided not to go through with it. So what was the point of bringing it up? It doesn't add to the story.

    4. The cat didn't even exist until it was dead.

    There's so much more I could say, but I'll stop here for now.


    Anyway, don't feel like your rants, if you want to air them, don't have to be this long or in depth. Just fire off!

    All of my rants lately have been about Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Black Panther. However, unlike Star Wars I actually really liked Black Panther, just had some nitpicks and plot holes.

    But SW: TLJ was awful. Too much comedy, dumb overall plot, disregards the events and questions in the previous film and had whole storylines that turned out to be pointless in the end.

    I hate them for all the same reasons, but I can't remember anything about them. I only remember that I hate them.

    I've only seen one Tyler Perry movie: Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor. It didn't look as camp as his other pics. I was fooled. It wasn't camp, but not good. Now he has another movie that looks different. Fool me once...?

    1. They're all titled 'Tyler Perry's _____'. As if you can't sniff a Tyler Perry film from the beginning of the commercial. He's the director, writer, producer, PA, key grip, and oversees Kraft services on ALL of his projects.

    2. Church is always the only way ppl fix their problems.

    3. Beautiful, high powered, corporate exec blk woman manages to find love after going to church and giving the guy next door a chance, OR struggling, average looking (see: 'real') blk woman eventually softens her heart after her no good, dark skinned baby daddy runs off, and a fine mulatto man like Boris or Shemar comes along and wants to be w her forever. After they go to church of course.

    In all honesty, as long as we keep moving toward the reality of Tyler Perry NOT being the only blk person getting their projects greenlit, then he's really not hurting anyone. His stuff isn't blowing any minds, but he has an audience. And as ppl who are often overlooked when it comes to media representation (blk men who happen to be gay) you can't be mad at his audience for their support.

    Yeah, that one was admittedly different from his usual work. But you're right about it not being good. All I remember is the girl getting HIV at the end. Like, it wasn't enough that he dumped her, but she ended up with HIV too?! That's a bit much, Mr. Perry

    I liked that movie. The movie was based on the play and I saw the play YEARS before the movie came out so he wasn't just throwing HIV out there. It was a good "lesson learned" movie and I don't even like Tyler Perry's production

    Since it was in the play (I didn't even know there was one), I can kinda give him that one. It just felt so tacked on in the movie. Maybe it can be chalked up to story moments that can't quite be handled the same across mediums. I haven't seen the play though, so I can't say for sure.
