But his closest relationship of all is with himself, as is clear from the first scene, where Eminem is doing rap gestures in the competition shed men's room, looking in the mirror, hearing his music in his head --and this is fine, because it's what a young man has to do: get on friendly working terms with who he is. This is a movie that goes places movies don't generally go where, for good or for ill, many people do live every day. I enjoyed this movie immensely. Will B-Rabbit prevail and seize the shot he's given or will he let it slip?. The troubled young aspiring rapper from a ghetto in Michigan must exert his last chances to become successful while dealing with his life in ruins.
Rabbit's home life is not much better. There are some scenes that leave you scratching your head. Some may not enjoy it as much, but that's probably because they go into the movie with different expectations. I have never been able to put a finger on Mr. Brittany Murphy acts as his love interest, but most importantly his muse.
In his debut movie he managed to play it real and natural. The problem is that people today are just too biased when it comes to people like Eminem. Eminem knows that he is white and will be nothing else. The last fights in the motion picture, are the total peak. The troubled young aspiring rapper from a ghetto in Michigan must exert his last chances to become successful while dealing with his life in ruins. Despite all of this, I think that people have overlooked the fact that he said the only thing that truly matters to him is his daughter, Hailie Jade.
It's his ability to control his anger that makes both Rabbit and Eminem winners. The presence of her character is a key plot element that sets up the film, but the appearance of her character in the film by its end seems unnecessary due to the fact that it is underdeveloped. Things in Rabbit's life take a turn for the better when he later falls in love with Alex Brittany Murphy , an aspiring young woman who dreams of becoming a model and moving to New York to start life a new. In this movie Eminem carries the expression of sheer imminence, raw potential, to a new level of clarity and confidence. Bassinger is a blue ribbon southern white trash trailor park mom. This does not mean we will be hearing him thanking his producer Paul Rosenberg next year at the Oscars, but we can expect to him to receive a lot of praise for future movie roles. This is the motivating enrapturing story of the incredible rapper Eminem.
The film is detailed, finely crafted, and has a pounding heart the size of a boxcar. Eminem proves here that he really can act and in fact may have a future in motion pictures. The supporting cast also makes fine use of their considerable talents, carving the Detroit of this film out of the world itself, not out of fiction. It's too well made a movie to be that. But those who say Eminem is sanitized here for mall viewing have an odd notion of language. He had good on screen chemistry with pretty much all the characters, but especially with Brittany Murphy Uh, gotta love that sex scene.
In an industry where pop music movies are a dime a dozen, this is particularly impressive. His relationship with his mother Basinger is much more amiable than it is in real life, or at least how it comes across in his music. Eminem plays Jimmy Smith, Jr. On the off chance that you ever had any questions about Eminmems gifts — one way or the other — you unquestionably know his value now. Given the cast and premise, you probably expect one of two things, either a silly excuse for self-aggrandizement or an overblown caricature of hip-hop culture.
The vexed youthful trying rapper from a ghetto in Michigan must apply his last opportunities to wind up effective while managing his life in remains. Despite the often humorous content of his songs, there are many dark under tones in them as well. I thought Eminem did a good job acting. The film itself is loosely based on his life growing up in Detroit. This film says something about rap and the human experience that hasn't been articulated this well many times before; it bridges the gap between rap and poetry in a big way, and makes that gap look a lot smaller. CinemaScore polls conducted during the opening weekend revealed the average grade cinemagoers gave 8 Mile was B+ on an A+ to F scale, with the core under-21 demographics giving it an A. I'm sure that we can expect to be seeing a lot more of him later on.
I thought it was a departure from the typical movies that star Hip-hop artists nowadays, which typically glorify the hip-hop lifestyle. Which is a very material lifestyle. If you ever had any doubts about Eminmems talents - one way or the other - you definitely know his worth now! I wonder if there were more scenes involving Manning that were ultimately deleted via editing. Oh, and, in case you were wondering, there is rapping, and plenty of it. Eminem, but it is very much informed and guided by the experiences of his early career as a rapper in blue-collar and no-collar Detroit.
Also, he does not rap about the things that some people seem to think is destroying rap music. Both are delicious but primed for rejection. The rapping happens because it must happen to these characters at this time, not because Eminem is a rapper. The naturalistic presentation doesn't stop there; most of the film is shot on location in Detroit, and the gritty, sometimes almost frenzied design and cinematography firmly establish that this is not just another Hollywood movie. His only way out of the ghetto and torturous life he's living in is with his talent in rapping. It's surprising - admirable, really - how well Curtis Hansen and his crew keep track of the plot from scene to scene when not much of it seems to matter other than Rabbit's problems with his mother, Stephanie Smith -- Kim Basinger.
Even as they help communicate a hard, unforgiving time and place, they also give rise to deep and profound sympathies that don't come around in every film. This movie was pretty dark. For one, 8 Mile might have the most believable, most powerful representation of an automobile factory of any film in the last twenty years, and it still manages to use the location for sophisticated, plot driving drama. I feel that many of the people who hate Eminem have never actually listened to one of his songs. His only way out of the ghetto and torturous life he's living in is with his talent in rapping. This movie only takes its hero to the moment when he walks away, having shown that he can be a star. But it sure takes guts to put yourself out there like that, well done.
