Checked out a screening of Notorious last night at Cinema Tuesdays at Nike Sportswear’s Montalbán Theater. Scene was pretty thick. Just missed the reception with MC Lyte, made it just time to catch the flick and check the Q&A session with George Tillman Jr., Derek Luke & Naturi Naughton.
I went in with low expectations and was pleasently surprised. It wasn’t great, but in the same sense wasn’t terrible
For any hip-hop fan, next year’s movie featuring the deceased Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G. represents a must-see film as it documents the life and times of some will argue one of the greatest of all time (G.O.A.T.). Rapper Gravy is cast the lead as Biggie Smalls with Derek Luke and Anthony Mackie as Sean Combs and Tupac Shakur respectively
Release date set for January 16th, 2009
