A good movie

Honestly, I was very young when I watched this flick but back then, I thought it was pretty good. Maybe I should re-watch it to make up my mind for good. Anyway, it is basically a solid biography, even though I’m not an expert on Tina Turner’s life. I mean, this woman is definitely an icon and she definitely deserved such a movie to tell her story. Of course, the biggest asset in this flick wa... read more

A good movie

“Honestly, I was very young when I watched this flick but back then, I thought it was pretty good. Maybe I should re-watch it to make up my mind for good. Anyway, it is basically a solid biography, even though I’m not an expert on Tina Turner’s life. I mean, this woman is definitely an icon and she definitely deserved such a movie to tell her story. Of course, the biggest asset in this flick was the performance by Angela Bassett who would be nominated for an Academy award for her work. Eventually, it would probably be a most memorable performance but it’s too bad she gets only supporting parts nowadays but Hollywood is pretty ruthless on women above the 40’s. Laurence Fisburne was also pretty good and was also nominated for Academy award, even though his part as Ike Turner was rath” read more

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary - Year 2010 (649 movies items)

"12.10. 2010 A very common problem with biopics is that they are usually made just for fans and the director focuses too much on glittering details instead of deepening the characters. For example, Bryan Gibson's movie about Tina Turner's difficult rise to stardom impresses with the singing scenes, but avoids answering the most difficult questions: Why did Tina tolerate Ike's reprehensible behavior so long? Angela Bassett's classy performance in the main role is easily the best part of this othe"

Premiere's 100 Greatest Performances of All Time (100 movies items)

"Angela Bassett as Tina Turner "In one of the most brutal depictions of domestic abuse ever put in a triumph-over-adversity biopic, Bassett sings, cries, crawls, and kicks her way from joyful innocence to soul-crushing misery to hard-learned self-reliance. It's a performance as raw and pitch-perfect as a Tina Turner rendition of "Proud Mary." Bassett ravages herself emotionally to show the pop diva's vulnerability and grim determination. But it's her physicality -- those powerful thighs and arms,"
