[DVD Review] Tyler Perry's I can Do Bad All By Myself

Constantly derided by critics, all but ignored by Hollywood, and largely unheard of in the lucrative foreign markets that over time parachute most pictures into some semblance of profitability, Tyler Perry remains one of the most important (not to mention bankable) figures working in cinema today. A one man band born of a proud African American theater tradition, Perry is a one man band who writes, produces, directs and stars in stories that capture the zeitgeist of black America, tackling such unfashionable, unmarketable issues as economic empowerment and personal responsibility to the tune of more than $400 million.

While the likes of the Hughes Brothers simple retell the same story of urban oppression, poverty, and gentrification in a variety of different genres, Tyler Perry shows there is much more to black cinema than guns and gangs, forging an instantly recognizable brand as perhaps the only mainstream American filmmaker to directly engage with the African American middle-class.

I Can Do Bad All By Myself DVD Review

  • ScreenStar
Tyler Perry is a hit-making machine, and his most recent film, Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself (2009), ranks not only as yet another box office success, but also as one of his better, more mature and most emotionally relatable (and fulfilling) productions. Out now on DVD and Blu-ray from Lionsgate, the film stars the superb Taraji P. Henson, building on her strong, Oscar-nominated turn opposite Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008). Here, she plays April, a hard-drinking nightclub singer who's involved with a married man, Randy (Brian White), and is suddenly saddled with the burden of caring for her late sister's three children (Hope Olaide Wilson, Kwesi Boakye, and Frederick Siglar) after the gun-toting Madea (Perry) snags them looting her home. April doesn't want the kids, but she soon relents and begins the slow process of building a family, a process that's sped up

Moon: "Moon may not be right up there with the best that the genre has to offer, but it's damn good. And given the usual crop of crap science fiction that's thrown at us, it's a welcome relief. No aliens, dystopic futures, or killer robots. Just a dude living on the moon. That dude would be Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell), a contracted employee of a company called Lunar Industries, which has mostly solved Earth's energy crisis by figuring out how to harvest helium from sun-soaked moon rocks. Most of the process is automatic, but the company needs someone chilling out on the moon, overseeing operations and getting canisters of the wonderful He3 back to Earth." - Seth Freilich

The Verge: Hope Olaide Wilson

In Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself, Taraji P. Hinson's character isn't by herself for long. After some prodding from Madea, she takes in her sister's troubled children, including Jennifer, played by newcomer Hope Olaide Wilson. Wilson's own story could teach a Perry heroine a thing or two about overcoming adversity: She grew up between England and Nigeria and sold eggs to help her family stay afloat until a green card lottery gave them all the opportunity to move to the United States. Compounding the culture shock was Wilson's graduation from high school at age 15 and subsequent decision to move to California to pursue acting, but as she told Movieline last week, neither of those events seem as scary as watching herself perform on a 40-foot-high movie screen.

MovieWeb's 2009 Fall Movie Guide!

Labor Day weekend is coming up, and it's a holiday that marks the end of the summer movie season along with summer itself.

This year we have Megan Fox's possessed body, a sensational animated film and a new zombie adventure. There's a lot more that I'm looking forward to this fall, so here is a comphrehensive look at what you can expect from this fall movie season.
