" Director: Jeff Pollack His 1st movie My 1st movie watched from the director This is a disappointing movie overall. Not a bad one, I just had such high hopes after wanting to see it since I was 12. It's also the worst Tupac performance I've seen. They gave him a very unlikable character with little depth and opportunity to show off his actually-good acting skills. The editing and directing are the culprits and I'm sure that's why we didn't see those names much again after this. Still, t"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2021: January (42 movies items)

"First viewing - Jan. 18th I'd intended to chase the previous film with Get on Up for another dose of Chadwick Boseman, but wound up not having enough time. Above the Rim had a shorter run-time, so I picked it instead. And it's a solid film...good story, mostly good acting, and overall it kept me entertained. Some aspects could have been better explored or fleshed out, but I thought it was worth seeing once and I'm glad I gave it a look. "

"May 31 "You think I came back here to work for you?" "Come on, man, we brothers; wouldn't have you working for me. We'd be partners." "What, selling that shit? Are you that dumb?" "Who the fuck you think you're talking to, man? This ain't Nutso. This ain't that dopehead on the roof taking orders from you. This ain't your same little brother following behind you trying to go outside. You ain't the motherfuckin' man no more. I'm the one! Shit has changed! It's a new day, bro. If you can't clean"
