    'Bright'

    We've rounded up the best critic slams of Smith and the fantasy-action feature directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis, which begins streaming Friday. Forbes: "Congratulations, Netflix! You can make a visually grotesque, dreadfully dull and hopelessly convoluted would-be franchise action movie just as well as the stereotypical Hollywood machine! If anything, Bright is a giant Christmas/Hanukkah gift from Netflix to the major studios. It shows the streaming giant falling on its face in its attempts to replicate the so-called Hollywood blockbuster." Cinemablend: "The problem is that this richly-constructed world often comes at the expense of characters ... Will Smith is more or less on autopilot, doing what everyone pretty much expects from a Will Smith action movie these days. In fact, if the name 'Ward' wasn't directly printed on the uniform of Smith's character, we would've just assumed that we were looking at Suicide Squad's Floyd Lawton." IndieWire: A movie that "boasts all the production value of an episode of Charmed, Netflix’s first mega-budget film effort starts with a potentially compelling premise that never gets off the ground." Rolling Stone: "You'll get lots of violence and colorful threats and confusing shoot-outs, but you're not going to get much meaning." The Wrap: "Astoundingly bad in virtually every way, Bright shares in common several of the shortcomings of Ayer’s previous film, including conspicuous evidence of desperate efforts to cobble its under-explained and yet somehow overcomplicated mythology into something coherent." And: "Smith seems lost here as Daryl, even as he retreads his wiseacre pose from films like Independence Day and especially Men in Black." The New York Times: "(Ayer) strayed into empty superhero theatrics with the slapdash Suicide Squad (co-starring Mr. Smith) and again dilutes his integrity with Mr. Smith’s lightweight sitcom likability. You’ll find beatings, shootouts, car crashes, awkward analogies and a measure of buddy badinage in Bright, but true enchantment is in short supply."

    Man the reviews for bright are scathing - average 3.4 out of 10. Is Will capable of doing a good movie anymore? His choices are awful.

    That was a great interview thanks
  6. Until we see a video of them in the studio I retain a healthy skepticism haha
  7. apparently Jeff has booked Will for 2 weeks in January to come to his house and see what they can come up with chasing goosebumps style. fingers crossed this actually happens! The results could be incredible!
  8. Yeah the music industry is basically dead these days. No one buys music. "Albums" don't even really exist anymore. Kids stream a song they like and that's about it. That's why I can't understand why Will even cares about a "hit song". Just do some JJFP for the longtime fans.
  9. All fair points Jim but I'm pretty sure the 30 or so tracks he's recorded he isn't dropping any bars.. unless he gets with Jeff and does some proper rap tracks I don't like our chances of getting some hip hop out of Will these days...
  10. After bomba fiesta, call in the wild and get lit I have a feeling there are no rap tracks in the 30 tracks he has recorded. He is doing a lot of experimental stuff. I’m feening for a proper rap track and 3 rap verses because I’m interested in what Will has to say these days.
  11. I found the stuff with Jive really interesting. To add to the backstory, back in 1996 Will went to Jive with Men in Black and they didn't like it. They didn't think anyone would buy a jazzy jeff and fresh prince album anymore. So Will went and signed a deal with Sony. Then Jive said hey you had an original 7 album contract with us as jazzy jeff and fresh prince so Jive sued Will and Jeff for not honouring their contract. Then it sounds like as part of the settlement Will and Jeff lost all rights to their backcatalogue so they receive nothing when summertime or boom is played on the radio which sucks! Obviously we know Big Willie Style went on to become one of the highest rap albums of all time so the people at Jive got that one seriously wrong!
  12. Really interesting stuff about when JJFP went from Jive to Sony!
  13. Have a listen! https://www.thecurrent.org/feature/2017/09/09/interview-the-legendary-dj-jazzy-jeff
  14. We really need to push this guys if we ever want to hear another Will Smith album. Make sure you write reviews on amazon|itunes etc. share the track on social media. We need to get the word out.
  15. Here are some photos of the JJFP.com crew @ Blackpool! I will write an entire article about the night but I am still processing it. It truly was an amazing concert!
