Hustle & Flow

What can I say about this movie?

I will say try to avoid the trailer before you see it.

As someone in the commercial/voice over industry I have to say I do love my commercials and I live for movie trailers but I was really happy I hadn't seen the trailer for Hustle & Flow.

I had no idea what to expect. I had no idea what it was about except that it had something to do with music. I like Terrance Howard a lot and he was the only one I had seen mentioned about this movie.

Now, aside from the fact that I was very happy to be sitting next to Mike as we went to our 8:30 show at the 3rd Ave & 11th Street Loews for our show, I was almost as happy with the movie.

I won't ever say the movie was better than the date but that is a whole other story.

The movie caught me pretty much right away from the 70's feel it put off to the language “slang” that was used. I think that is something that makes you really watch this movie. If your not listening to what is being said, and understanding it, then you can be lost. There is nothing like a southern regional dialect to get your attention.

I am not going to really say anything about the subject except to say that Anthony Anderson is great. DJ Quall, who I just think is very funny, is really good too. But to me it is really the women who steal the show.

Go. Listen. Enjoy. Leave with a couple of songs running in your head.

Okay, maybe not the songs, but believe me the “hook” will stay with you.
