Feeling Aight


watched Precious tonight. You know the one. The one for which Mo'Nique won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

Precious DVDI don't really know what I was expecting. I mean, I knew that Mo'Nique's character was "mental". I knew she abused Precious.


I don't really know what to say about this movie.

It did not affect me the way some other movies have affected me in the past.

It probably would have helped if I hadn't heard sooooo much about the movie and how great it was, or seen that Miss Sidibe really isn't Precious.

I mean, I know she's ok. I knew she's well adjusted. I know she's full of confidence and charm. Sucks for her that Sandra Bullock had to pick this year to win her Oscar. ;-p

Anyway, Precious is a 16 year old girl who is pregnant, for the second time, by her father. Her mother (Mo'Nique) is a crazy bitch who tells Precious that she's stupid and she'll never amount to anything.

Precious gets kicked out of normal school and has to start going to an Alternative School. That is where she starts to realize that she isn't stupid. She learns to read & write (don't ask me how she managed to get A's in school when she had a 4th grade reading level...). She makes friends, blah blah.

It's a good movie.

You should definitely NOT watch it when you're hormonal. You might be more affected than I was by it, LOL.

It's a lot of abuse. We don't see it all, but we know it happens.

I really can't tell you more without ruining it. (Sorry, Monique.)

That is all.

You can stop calling me a slacker now, Re!

Now playing: Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive via FoxyTunes


  1. I've read the book, and I do have the movie. I've yet to watch the movie because "I" like "you" said don't want to be all hormonal when "I" do watch it - but I'm hormonal ALL the Time Damn It. so what should I do ?

    watch it, not watch it ?

    I already know what happens from the book - so what should I do ?

    how's that for turnabout on a monday,
    and yeah I'm still Ms Snarky today.

    and I'm playing Dance Disco Heat from Sylvester since you're in a disco mood - stop over to and listen. I gotcha disco girly

  2. I'm loving the easterbasket look btw. the new header is sweet

  3. wow, did you remove your entrecard ?

  4. When the initial previews came out I wanted to see the movie. But then the supporters went crazy and spoke as if you had an obligation to go see the movie. I think that (and the 50 billion trailers I saw) turned me off and I now have no desire to ever lay one eye on the movie. I'm proud of everyone that worked their butts off to in the film but ah... next --->

  5. Re - If you already know what happens, you might as well watch it. Usually stories/movies about child abuse make me really angry. This one just didn't.

    Thanks for the compliment about my new header! Yes, I removed my Entrecard. People who have removed theirs haven't noticed any change in the number of visitors. Plus I haven't really been blogging daily, so why have it?

    Shae - I only saw it because MD bought it, LOL. I buy the action movies, she buys the dramas. So we trade whenever it's appropriate. I've had her "I can do bad all by myself" Tyler Perry Movie forever. Since I find all of Tyler Perry's movies repetitive, I'm not in that big of a rush to see it, even with Mr Sweet Lips (Eric Rodriguez) in it. :-)
