biopic, CULTURE, stereotypes, Tupac -

I watched the Tupac movie so that you don’t have to. I know it came out last month. I know the reviews already ripped it to shreds, BUT I’M STILL MAD. I’m not even the biggest Tupac fan. Honestly, I’m more a fan of the music that Biggie made. I loved Tupac as an actor however. I honestly think that was his true calling. His role as “Bishop” should have gotten him an Oscar, but his celebrity persona as the perpetual “bad boy” probably got him blackballed by the Academy. And just because the institutions couldn’t recognize his gifts didn’t mean he didn’t possess any. Tupac was an icon and hero to millions. His biopic film should have reflected that, but it didn’t. Instead it reflected all the things Tupac stood against.
