Enough of the stupid ass remakes already!!!!

Is there not anyone in Hollywood left with a brain cell that can come up with something original, GEEEEEZZZZ!!!

Love Beyonce. The Directore signed her. That says a lot.

# 6

She did amazing in Cadillac Records.
Pulled a really memorable performance.

# 7

The new Hollywood is determined to kill all the good classics.

# 8

You say she has a monkey face. Well this monkey makes way more money than you. Jealous much?!

I love Beyonce. Her movie career started out rough. It is slowly blossoming to an excellent skill.

They remade it with Judy Garland then Barbara Streisand. Why not Beyonce. Let’s see the competition.
Celine Dion is ugly and old.
Mariah Carey is too provocative and when she sings she has to stand still.
Rihanna can’t sing anything Barbara, Judy or Beyonce have sang. Absolutely no way.
Britneys version will have trailer parks in it.
Christina will turn it into an R rates film.
America is changed for the better. Obama is president. Beyonce should not have a problem playing this role. We all know she can sing and she can definitely imitate and adapt to different singing styles.

this is sickening…Beyonce CANNOT act…for goodness sakes, every singer now wants to call themselves an actress…acting is more than singing…

And what remake are we on for this film? The fourth or so…it is not necessary…can’t Hollywood come up with an original idea instead of remaking every classic film??

Judy Garland’s performance is pure classic…Beyonce doesn’t hold a candle to Judy Garland’s acting ability nor her singing voice…I am hating Hollywood today…

She is great. Time for a change.

I love Beyonce. She is so talented. People will always hate others who are better than them.
Jealousy and negativity will get you nowhere.

I love Beyonce..but can we say..typecast!!!!…is she becoming the next Diana Ross…

There is nothing this girl cannot do. She strives and strives to better herself in everything she branches out to do.
I wish people in the world would do the same. Stop wasteing their time with all this negative bull trying to pull people down rather than congratulate them where it is due.

She’s really desperate for an oscar, isn’t she? Well you’re not getting one by remaking films!

Horrible casting.

Before you go running your mouth withour thinking or even watching the movie….
Beyonce has been getting rave reviews for her role as Etta James ion the New Movie.
The Director of this film wanted to sign Beyonce and he did.
If she was not good. She wouldn’t be requested by all these directors.

Secondly. Actors/Actresses always start at the bottom and get better in time. Brad Pitt was talked about his good looks in Thelma and Louise when he first came out. Nothing much was said about him becoming the seasoned actor he would come to be. Now look at him he is an accomplished and celebrated actor with many achievement because he worked at it. Why is Beyonce any different.

Rolling Stone review – She could have nabbed an oscar for best supporting actress

MTV – says she is convincing as etta James and brings a persuasive period texture to the character.

Michaul Musto the Village Voice – As Etta James Beyonce turns in a riveting performance deserving of an oscar nomination.

Broadcasing television network – What a great fim. Beyonce knowles was astounding with her performance.

Scott Hoffman moviepicture film.com – Beyonce proves she is a full fledged movie star delivering an outstanding performance

Mercury News – The best vocal work comes from Beyoncé Knowles in the role of Etta James

A.O Scott New York Times – In her previous film roles she has seemed guarded and tentative, as if worried that her charisma would melt from too much emotional heat. Here, playing a needy, angry, ferociously talented and fantastically undisciplined woman, she is as volcanic and voluptuous as an Italian movie star. Or, more to the point, a real soul diva of the old school.

Sounds to me like she is turning out to be a pretty decent actress.
