|Demetrius Shipp, Jr. (as Tupac Shakur)|
Critics be damned. You cannot expect our movies to get the same kind of favorable treatment given to movies made by people who are not "of color."
So happy I didn't listen to the nay-sayers and went to see for myself this weekend, the newly released "All Eyez on Me" starring Demetrius Shipp, Jr.
In addition to the fact that the resemblance to the late Tupac Shakur is "eery," Shipp is a great actor.
The movie is over two hours long but it moved with a quick pace and kept me engaged.
Sure, the filmmakers took creative liberties. That's what artists do. But don't let folks tell you that it's not a good movie. It's a great movie.
Go see for yourself. In fact, pack the theaters.
