Last night I went to the Notorious movie the day after its national release. The only thing I knew about the movie going into it was that it was about Biggie, but that was it. My official review about the movie was that it was fairly well done, but probably not the greatest. It seemed a bit like an "on TV" movie rather than a big screen flick. The movie touched on what most know about Biggie but in a much more personal manner. The part about the Tupac shooting and the East Coast vs. West Coast rivalry made me wonder about the reaction of their "side of the story" by those who sided on their opponent's West Coast side. Overall I'd say it'd be a good movie to view - it's pretty touching and celebrates what Biggie accomplished in his short time while could be motivating for some to get off the streets and work towards their dreams. But remember, always keep the faith.
