One evening, Alline brings Anna Mae to the night club where a group led by singer-hearthrob Ike Turner plays. Ike makes a nightly ritual of passing the microphone around the dance hall and on one visit to the club Anna Mae grabs it and belts out a song. Soon Anna's whole life is in Ike's hands: he's changed her name to Tina and taken total control of her singing career. Though he's paternalistic and artistically demanding, she's fascinated by his forceful masculinity, stylistic charisma and c ... (more)

“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"
