He needs to stop writing and directing his own movies and be in someone elses movie, preferably one with a script that doesnt involve being a cop, drugs war, someone killing his wife and/or kidnapping his daughter, him wearing those bad suits, nightclub scenes where he is blatantly taller then everyone on set and finally, for the love of god, there is no need for him to be falling in love with yet another hooker.

(ru) wrote: Martin Lawrence, Cedric the Entertainer, Mike Epps. 15 years ago, these would have been three major incentives to place a movie on the must-watch list. Now, these names are just another reminder of how the quality of black comedies have declined since the 90s. Gone are the days of 'Friday' or even 'Big Momma's House'.'Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins' is a mess of clichs, stereotypes and poor slapstick humour, with even the dreaded fart jokes making an appearance. Lawrence & co put minimal effort into pulling off the same shocked facial expressions and over-the-top reactions over and over again, expecting to eventually force a laugh. Mo'Nique's loud and inconsiderate comments are the only occasional source of decent comedy, but it is not good enough to overshadow the severe lack of it everywhere else. Don't come here looking for a good comedy cause you won't find one. Admittedly, it is easy on the brain and so conveniently serves as something to have on in the background at a family/friend gathering. In truth though, this is probably because no one is really watching the TV at these events and therefore it doesn't matter what is on.

(kr) wrote: It is hard to believe that this film was made by Stephen Soderbergh. Experimental and artistically stunning it is a film so coiled up in style and true to Franz Kafka's themes -- it is likely to only be of interest to philosophy and literature students. I loved it, but it will not make much sense without a solid understanding of Kafka and Modernism. Shane Meadows' cinematography and Leslie Tomkins' art direction are outstanding. A film one will either love or hate.

In 1989 my friends and I would go up to Lincoln Highschool across the street from the boys and girls club which would later be moved to Lincoln and watch this movie being filmed. Some of the props stayed in the parking lot for which seemed like years.It was a great time, being 10-11 years and seeing a sci-fi movie filmed right by your house. We couldn't wait for this movie to come out, to us it was like the biggest movie ever (eventhough we knew it wasnt). It was down right awful then and it still is, but its worth watching purely for that purpose. Its funny how far off the future has been predicted in movies from the past. I graduated a few years before 1999 and let me tell you it was nothing like this in this area in Seattle...lol
