"Just watched COMMON in SMOKIN' ACES and..."
Mon Dec-11-06 10:47 PM by SonnyRocwell

  

          

...our boy held his own with a serious A-List cast! DAMN! I think this might be the beginning of a new career for our boy Rasheed. And DAMN that joint playing at the end credits!??! I need that track Comm.

...and for the record, it wasn't no bootleg. It was an official pre-screening....just in case y'all were wondering.

It was perfect for her because her character played it straight....not too far over-the-top and not too reserved. She stream-lined her way through the story and it didn't demanded TOO much from her as an actress....just enough. I was impressed.

more as i get older and see more through their veil of cheesiness, regurgitated 1 dimensional characters, stagnant storylines, badly written dialogue, crappy music, uncreative themes and bad camera work. im not one of those dudes that goes to the movies just to be entertained by some dumbass story, if shit isnt well put together and with some good creative thought behind it, its bullshit

...I went thru 4 yrs of film school so I recognize the differences in the way I watched movies 10 years ago and how I observe films now. I've learned to trust my Suspension Of Disbelief and take some films for what they are. I agree that there's a lot of bullshit being made, but there are just as many screen gems. You just won't see them on the top 10 of Weekend Box Office numbers.

Smokin Aces, however, was an enjoyable experience.

Now I need to know what that Common joint was at the end credits. Best I've heard all year.

and i wholeheartedly disagree that there are just as many gems as bullshit out there. the bullshit outnumbers the good by a huge margin. especially american cinema.

It's a whooole lotta names and people to keep up with, but it's surely do-able.

We talked about that as a group at dinner afterwards too. I gave it a 7.5 That's a respectable un-biased rating even after working w/ Rashid in preparation for this role in the movie.

You're right. I think he did phenomenally well. His scenes are actually pretty crucial and pivital to the movie as a whole. I think others will give it an 8 to an 8.5 after watching it. It's high-paced, great action, engaging acting, and great drama. WORTH WATCHING in the theaters! Period.

...sometimes they go hand in hand. Like BKyle said before, Common was in some of the film's most pivotal scenes and he came off really strong.

act and just ended up basically taking a shit on film proves my point. not to say that Comm isnt a good actor, i havent seen anything to say wether he is or isnt, but how someone is on record has infinitesimally little to do with how they will perform under a director, a set, scripted lines and co stars.

...would make good actors. You're right. There are a lot of em that have stunk up entire films, but I have seen Common act and I do believe that he is a good actor. His ability to emote on mic or on stage, his presence on camera, translated well into Smokin Aces. In this case, I think it helped him.

It was entertaining. Gory as hell, tho. One dude falls over and sits on a chinsaw.

Com and Alicia didn't have very demanding roles. They had to show either the intense, concerned face, or the cool, focused face. Com had slightly more to show in his long dialogue with Jeremy Piven, and he did well. The director didn't ask too much of them, which is prolly wise when dealing with a _______ turned actor.
