The recent ATL Movie!

Did any of the Atlanta Metbloggers see this movie? I’m surprised to find there aren’t any reviews or anything about it on this site. Had this been a movie about New York, you’d see TONS of stuff about it! Just my two and a half cents. :)

To be honest, and I only speak for myself here, this kind of movie doesn’t appear like it’s my kind of cinema going movie, I’ll most likely rent this when the DVD comes out… Shitty answer I know, maybe one of you could do a mini review in the comments? I know Seth did a preview of it back in February, saying he might check it out, I don’t know if he has or not…

    I haven’t seen the movie yet. Maybe this weekend.

    Full review when and if I see it.

    Not at all, I’m just very picky about which movies I’ll lay down my $7 for… I only tend to see about 5 movies a year in the cinema, the rest gets dropped down to dvd rentals. Simple as

    I went out and saw it on opening night and thought it was a generally good movie. I doubt it will win any Oscars anytime soon, but I think the movie did a great job of showing off Atlanta landmarks as well as cultural differences.

    And no violence due to the movie’s release! Take that, Valor security.

    “The movie ATL came out two weeks ago, and since ATL is Atlanta, I had to watch… It’s about four black Atlanta high school seniors trying to “make it”, one way or another, but compared to 8 Mile (which is a great movie) the drama and suspense is lacking… The “rich princess & poor good-hearted eldest brother hook up” theme makes it a children’s fairy tale, almost. ATL is more of a feel-good-movie, especially with the many music-centered scenes of the skating rink. It is a typical watch-and-forget movie, and OK at that… but a must see if you’re from Atlanta, regardless. In addition to actual Atlanta locations, the movie features ATL-based rappers and producers in acting roles (T.I., Outkast’s Big Boi, Jazze Pha) and lots of music from ATL-based (and other southern) hip-hop artists.”

    No, plumdrunk, I’m sure he’s very happy to be classed along with such excellent fare as Police Academy: Mission to Moscow and The Neverending Story III.
