Really terrible, completely boring and annoying

4 years, 11 months ago at Dec 19 15:53
The September 11 attacks occurred 10 days before the release of 'Glitter', and Mariah Carey blamed the attacks for keeping people away from cinemas. Though a film's overall gross doesn't define how good the film actually is (such as 'The Shawshank Redemption'), in this case, it's a bad film, and most of the people who have seen the film would agree.  'Glitter' is a really terrible, completely bor... read more

A bad movie

1 month, 3 weeks ago at Sep 27 21:03
Of course, since this movie has such a lame reputation, I wasn't expecting much but, after all these years, I still wanted to check if it was really so bad. And, indeed, I have to agree, it was just really weak. To be honest, I don't think that Mariah Carey was so bad though. I mean, sure, by playing a singer, she didn't take any risk but, even though I have never been a fan, she does have an impr... read more

Description: Pop star Mariah Carey plays Billie Frank, a shy, young mixed-race girl who is sent away by her alcoholic mother at a very early age. At an orphanage, she befriends Louise (Da Brat) and Roxanne (Tia Texada). Flash forward to 1983. Billie and her friends are spotted by a record producer, Timothy Walker (Terrence Howard), who wants them to sing backup for his latest pop-music discovery. But when super DJ Dice (Max Beesley) hears Billie's incredible voice, he makes a shady deal with Timothy to get her out of that dead-end situation. Soon, Billie and Dice are making hits inside the studio, and falling in love outside of it. Eventuall ... (more)

A bad movie

“Of course, since this movie has such a lame reputation, I wasn't expecting much but, after all these years, I still wanted to check if it was really so bad. And, indeed, I have to agree, it was just really weak. To be honest, I don't think that Mariah Carey was so bad though. I mean, sure, by playing a singer, she didn't take any risk but, even though I have never been a fan, she does have an impressive voice and, at the time, she never looked sexier. Unfortunately, pretty much everything else was just so tedious and borderline pathetic. Indeed, first of all, they used pretty much all the clichés involved in such stories about a rising singer and, to make things worse, there was absolutely no edge whatsoever. I mean, for half of the duration, there was no conflict at all and the best thin” read more
