"Phenomenal Woman, That's Me" - Poetic Justice

Hello my lovelies,

Hope your week is going well so far, slowly getting to the weekend. 

Today's film is one that I've been told to watch numerous times and every time I say I'll get round to it, and now I finally have. Sorry to the person that suggested I watch it, but I just don't think it's my thing.

Poetic Justice is an American romance and drama film made in 1993. Written and directed by John Singleton, it stars Janet Jackson as Justice and Tupac Shakur as Lucky. All of the poems that are featured throughout the film are written by Maya Angelou who also makes an appearance in the film as Aunt June.

I won't bore you with a plot line that you could look up anyway, so I'll just give my opinions and what I thought while watching it. 

From close to the beginning I could tell it wasn't going to be my sort of film. At times it felt cringey, and it struggled to hold my attention. I wouldn't say it's a bad film, just not incredibly interesting. 
I wouldn't necessarily call it boring, I just didn't feel hooked on the story line at any point. It didn't feel like very much happened. I think it just needed a little more action for me to enjoy it more.

I liked the poems, and two of them I had actually heard before so I recognised them straight away. It wasn't badly made but it was quite long which could be another reason it didn't hold my attention fully but I still watched until the end, and the end was quite cute. 
I wouldn't write it off completely as a film I wouldn't watch again, but I wouldn't be in a hurry to find it again. For others they might really like it so it still may be worth you checking it out as you could enjoy it more than I did.

Until next time my lovelies, thanks for reading :) x
