saw it last night at the premiere. i think t'was a cool movie.
anyone else seen it yet?
i guess some of you wont go to see it just because you despise eminem...

but hey, it's not everyday you get to see eminem f*cking, eminems ass, eminem with dark hair, eminem fighting, or eminem getting all sentimental!:p

I really wanna see it. Eminem has really grown on me and I really like him now :) I hear Kim Basinger is so wrong for the role- what was she like?

she was like...erm...a real slut :D

seeing eminem with dark hair, he looks much tougher. i dont see why he has to go dye his hair like that. makes him look like a sissy

I went to see it last night. It is really good!! I was expecting Kim Basinger to be really cringey in it, but the accent grates on you a bit at first, but after a bit she's not too bad I guess. It's the other girl in it that does my head in. She looks like a junkie!! Those black eyes!! Scary!! And she keeps having it off with everyone, she's a right tart.

Eminem does look really different with dark hair. I just couldn't get used to it. Every time he took his hat off it was just as weird like you hadn't seen it before hehe.

I don't have a problem with eminem anyway. The stuff he says is all part of a performance, a screen persona. It's just to get publicity. Now he's already doing well, he's toning it down a bit I think, and he's supposed to be making an effort for his kid. I like his music anyway. I've got his album, and I loved stan, as did most people. Your all probably gonna say you think he's crap now, lol, just to prove me wrong, but certainly in england amongst most 20 and 30 somethings I know, he's popular.

So it just got released there NiKo? Thats great, we had it back in November, but I know how screwey movie releases are worldwide. Yeah, I thought the movie was fantastic! Eminem (though I haven't ever been a fan of HIM personally, just some of his songs) did an amazing job. Helen, the girl you are trying to think of is Brittany Murphy, yeah...she looked like MEGA-SLUT. I didn't mind though, I was too busy trying to get the voice of LuAnne from King of the Hill outta my head :). Kim Basinger confused me a bit. I think she was casted because the director was the director from L.A. Confidential, and she was in that. But she was mean and nice throughout. I didn't know if I was suppose to feel good or bad for her? Like her or hate her? They didn't fully signify her character to me. Bunny Rabbit sure hated her, but she seemed overly nice alot....and then mean a few times. Oh well...it didn't take away from the movie for me. And the last 20 minutes of that movie are just the best....I've never been so entertained by Rap :) Seen it twice now, and get chills when he starts speed rapping with lickity split, and then the final battle is great. Wheeee! Anyhoo, good film, I'll buy it :)

I really loved the idea of how he dissed himself first so that PoppaD wouldnt have anything to say and choke! :D

I've never been a fan of M&M, so I think I will stay away from this one, though everyone tell me this is good. Even *gasp* Ebert gave it a good review, so I dunno........

He loves to make fun of stuff (Real Slim Shady/Without Me) but also a lot of his lyrics do have meaning like Stan which I read was based on an event that did happen to him- you know the whole fan sending him letters all the time and complaining that Eminem was ignoring him blah blah blah and loses the plot kills his pregnant gf and drives into the river. I'm sure Eminem is always gonna feel responsible for those deaths. He probably sometimes think "well if only I had replied earlier, if only I had seen this guy at my concert none of it would have happened" Wouldn't that screw you up in some way?

Besides, it's all in good fun, he just likes to shock people, but yeah I think he's trying to tone down a lot for his lil girl, also if the lyrics for cleaning out my closet are true (and that bit in the video where his mother is puttin something in his breakfast cereal) who knows what sort of effect that has on him?

Now I would never diss my own mama just to get recognition
Take a second to listen for who you think this record is dissing
But put yourself in my position, just try to invision
Witnessing your mama popping prescription pills in the kitchen
bitching that someone's always going through her purse when ****'s missing
Going through public housing systems, victim of munchasen syndrome
My whole life I was made to believe I was sick when I wasn't
'Til I grew up, now I blew up it makes you sick to your stomach, doesn't it?
Wasn't it the reason you made a CD for me, ma?
So you could try to justify the way you treated me, ma?
But guess what, your getting older now and it's cold when your lonely
And Nathan's growing up so quick he's gonna know that your phoney
And Hailie's getting so big now, you should see her, she's beautiful
But you'll never see her, she wont even be at your funeral *hahaha*
See what hurts me the most, is you wont admit you was wrong
Bitch, do your song, keep telling yourself that you was a mum
But how dare you try to take what you didn't help me to get
You selfish bitch, I hope you ****ing burn in hell for this ****!
Remember when Ronnie died and you said you wished it was me?
Well guess what, I am dead, dead to you as can be



And what kind of mother pops perscription pills in front of her kid, trys to poision him and claims that she wished her own child was dead?

OK I'm analyzing too much, everyone has their own opinion, just think it's kinda unfair to say such and such without really taking a chance to read his lyrics and find out what he's really trying to say

You're getting me wrong. I don't like him because he raps. I do not like rap music. :)

Eminems mom wasnt quite right in the head. his father left her when eminem was just a baby, his mom took drugs and told Marshal (eminem) that if he wont get a job to help paying the bills, she'll kick him out. this was at the age of 15.
Eminems cousin ronnie was like eminems best friend back then, and he was the one who introduced him to rap. then ronnie died..

anyways it's a long story...just read his biography or something. his mom was a b*tch

Everyone keeps telling me this is good. Even people who hate his music. I like his music, but I think I'll wait till the DVD comes out and just rent it.
