"Let’s talk about King Richard"


          

Amazing story and an amazing film.

I don’t feel like its getting the attention it deserves.

Tha man had a vision and executed it to perfection.

Also, the casting of both sisters was great. Especially Serena.

Really put the emphasis on Venus
and she deserves her flowers
But I wish they would have continued the narrative with Serena

Yeah, great film and one of Will's stronger performances
I wonder how long it took him to get down the bow legged walk
He nailed the role.

You already know why it's not being heralded
They portrayed that man as bat$hit crazy
Same press isn't going to eat an L to praise the film

Great movie.

and it was simply based on age

but it was also dope to see how their mom coached up Serena and made her serve deadly af.

Love how Serena snuck into that tourney.. lol.

and LOVED how the how family was moving in the same direction and everyone played their part.

That was Oscar worthy performance by Will but we know he won’t win it since the Tennis community and probably everyone in entertainment hates Richard because he protected his girls.

Great movie. As good as Will was, that kitchen scene with Aunjanue was exemplary of what separates good from great. She was effortlessly great. I imagine this was much more entertaining than a film on the sisters alone would’ve been. We’ve witnessed their trajectory, so it was fascinating for me to see how it all came together.

He looks like he’s dressed for an SNL skit. At some point he has to realize he’s too big of a star and entity to be in these sort of movies. When he has to play a real person his face is hard to get past. But the role and movie had too much potential for his ego to pass up.

Didn't try too hard to soften Richard's edges, just let his movie star charm shine from under the surface. And the accent bothered me for all of two minutes (probably due to the voiceover narration, which is almost always bad in movies like this). I hope he gets some Oscar love, a nomination anyway.

Weirdly enough I wasn't planning on watching it because I thought Will looked pretty awful in the trailer clips, and I didn't think he'd pull it off, but I think he was pretty fucking great.

Still pretty much standard biopic fare with some individual scenes that were really moving. Good movie.

Obviously more story there but it was 2.5 hours.

What an amazing story


I had to pause when they were moving to
Florida and was like not tunde, her life is in Compton...smh

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

Now it's a streaming service movie, where it can't fully benefit from being such an effective crowd pleaser. Unreal.

Anyway. I usually loathe biopics, and I really enjoyed this. Very smart of them to lean into Richard's complications, to not soften his edges too much. All of the "someday you're going to do (thing we know a Williams Sister did)" stuff was hokey, the least effective part of the movie to me personally, but I realize that just comes with the genre. That said, there are plenty of complications and grace notes that make this feel more real and thus more emotionally engaging than other biopics. And Smith was great-- as was Ellis, whom I'd love to see get some Oscar love.

that was the whole point of the movie.

2 Black girls and their fam against the world.
