Re: “Andisheh Nouraee's diary of a confused beige man

Thanks you for a great article! I wish they could have given you a lot more space to really cover all the reasons why these movies are so bad. I don't see the movies as necessarily chick flicks but they seem to use the same formula to get the point across and let's not get on just Tyler Perry. He's just in the public eye because he is making more of these movies. David Talbott is another one with his plays which haven't become movies as of yet (knock wood) I love the example of how he has to spell out things. I.E. the example of when he said I'm a successful pediatrician. I was waiting for him to say "a doctor who works with kids!" I only went to the last two films because I wanted to give them a try and I realized that I can pretty much hold off on seeing anything else produced by him. It has a market as do all the really over the top plays that are on the chitlin circuit. Why do I keep choosing the wrong man when the right one walked right past me!

It’s sad that we have to have two extremes pushed at us from Hollywood. One side of the spectrum is the really bad stuff (Soul Plane) and then the other side is the over the top stuff (Tyler Perry). Somewhere in between is the really quality that never gets to see the light of day. Thanks Mr. Nouraee for getting some dialogue started with your article.
