I'm not sure how well Francis Lawrence will do, but remember before the Lord of the Rings films, Peter Jackson's movies were less than memorable. And sometimes great directors have done bad (oliver Stone-Alexander, Ridley Scott-Kingdom of Heaven) movies. So here's to hoping I Am legend will be pretty good:)
“I always wanted to rap in a way that I could be respected in a barbershop and on a mixtape level but also spit a rap to a straight, white, corporate dude and he would understand every word. I’m kind of like Jadakiss meets Will Smith.”
that's just a part of the interview. Thought u guys would like 2 know
I don't know if I'm the only one, but I don't agree with Will's new movie choices at all. Actually, I'm fine with him possibly doing "I Am Legend" or "Tonight, He Comes," but my problem lies in the two comedy roles Will's chosen to do. First of all, I know "Time Share" with Nic Cage is still in development but it sounds like a rehash of "A Johnson family Vacation." I also heard there was this kind of movie already done as a TV movie. Also, the new idea that Will might team up with Jamie Foxx for a remake of "Uptown Saturday Night" sounds like your typical, average urban comedy. It sounds like a "Honeymooners 2." If you haven't noticed, they are both similar to Cedric the Entertainer movies. Why is Will doin "Cedric" movies now? They're both mediocre. I feel like Will needs to step up the quality of his movies even though I know he wants to entertain. "Time Share" and "Uptown Saturday Night" sounds like your run of the mill, blah movies.
I just don't like him because I feel he's exploiting black music. The reason why he got any fame at all is (and i'm being honest) is because he's white. If he was black and rapping the same thing, no one would really care. He's a teeny-bopper rapper who thinks he isn't. He's the only rapper that gets on TRL no matter how crappy the song and video. Since he came out, he took any any shine other rappers could possibly get. He and G-Unit are the only ones selling right now. His quality in songs have gone down too. I don't respect him as a person either. The only people he has the "courage" to diss are teeny-boppers, or deceased people. He shouldn't have dissed Will, Christopher Reeve, Sonny Bono, or Kurt Cobain. What have these people done to him?
these aren't "facts" It purely your opinion that Nick Cannon has done some significant work in the movies. If u call his movies superior to Will's, then I'm afraid to know what your favorite movies of all-time were. Nick Cannon's movies have all been, to put it nicely, crap.
are u kidding? How is Nick Cannon's movie career now superior to Will's when he was in his early 20's? Let's compare
Love Don't Cost a Thing
Shall We Dance
other movies projects coming up doesn't even have him as the lead.
Six Degrees of Separation
Made in America
Where the Day takes you
started working on Independence Day
*Will and Nick both have had their share of crap movies (will did the stinker Made in America in his early 20's) yet I see no evidence of Nick's movie career being superior to Will's. Will was 24 when he started shooting Bad Boys, and people were talking about his leading man abilities. Not to metion he got top billing for Independence Day although it wasn't necessarily his movie. Independence Day established Will as a star, but Nick Cannon han't even got there yet. I looked up a list of Nick's upcoming movies like "roll Bounce" (another kiddie urban comedy), some movie with Lindsay Lohan (u could count that out as a "serious" film), and some other crap like "monster Hunter" and the "underclassmen." None of these movies put him as the lead (except for the one with Lindsay). Will of course has moved on to be one of the top grossing stars of all time. Nick Cannon isn't even a smudge on that list. AJ, u are talkin nonsense.
no it's not really stupid. Will actually garnered more respect early in his career, and established himself as a solid Hollywood force. He had a huge TV hit, as we all know, and did serious movies, and a big action movie (Bad Boys) by the time he was 24 or 25. Nick cannon is what... 23 or 24 yrs old. People still look at him as a someNickelodeon child actor. He hasn't made the significant steps Will had. Seeing it as that, his movies are typical black, immature, ghetto comedies, but Will stepped out of that genre by the same age Nick is right now. AJ, it's dumber respecting someone like Nitty, (i forgot all about the guy) who hasn't even made a scrtach mark on the music scene. Plus, u say you respect people who don't talk about sex, yet what did Nitty's video include? Half-naked girls all dancin for him.
another review from someone who went there...
here's the full article http://www.delcotimes.com/site/index.cfm?B...3&PAG=461&rfi=9
* Will Smith - Or, should I say - DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince? Maybe it was appropriate that Smith entered on a throne to the sound of "The Champ is Here" (from his movie "Ali") because when all was said and done for Live 8, Smith was exactly that - the best performer of them all. Smith performed four songs, and with each, he brought the crowd to a new level of frenzy that no one thought possible moments before.
Smith provided the most memorable musical moment of Live 8 when he had the entire crowd sing the theme song to his '90s sitcom "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Everyone sang the song. I mean everyone. Smith didn't have to sing a word. He just stood on the stage, looked out over the crowd and smiled. He knew what was happening was something historic, and just let it be. The sound of 500,000 people singing will always be in my mind that's for sure, and probably everyone else's as well.
Then, to wrap up a tremendous set, Smith finished with "Summertime," another mega-hit that had a Philly flavor.
Smith did his hometown proud - and stole the show. A-plus.
he said Jay-Z and Will Smith were the best. alicia keys and Dave matthews were the worst.
Nick will be nowhere near as successful as Will is. For one, Will is more accepted in the rap industry and movie industry. And sadly, there is a thing called looks which takes many people far. Nick Cannon does not have that appeal as far as I know.
that's right. People shouldn't be blind sided by the media reports that Kurt Cobain "killed himself." You guys can go to www.cobaincase.com or http://www.justiceforkurt.com/ for some info. Some good stuff there.
But I don't think the girl should have said "anyone who understood Nirvana knows he didn't kill himself, etc". No one really understands an artist unless you know them personally. A lot of my favorite artists like 2Pac and Kurt Cobain are still a mystery to me, and I've been a huge fan of theirs for ages.
