Lunched with ladies, who I volunteer with for an annual writers' conference. Good food and good gab. After we inked our conference schedule we got on to chat about movies, especially about Tyler Perry, since he just released another Madea movie.
There were four of us ladies, with four different views. Yet came down to the same conclusion, Tyler needs to do better with what he has.
Tyler makes lots $$$. He is from humble beginnings and has worked hard for what he's achieved. I will be honest, I have not enjoyed Tyler's movies like I want to. Good foundations for stories, yet, for me, too many characters, and not tied together by the end. If Tyler had a good editor and he's got the money to hire a brilliant director.
I know if its working, why fix it? I usually come out of a Tyler Perry movie, wishing there was more to it. Madea can be funny, although in small doses. Might be why, I've only seen one Madea movie
Anyway, we four had a good chat. All of us proud of Tyler in general and to get to that next level, get a good editor and learn from some constructive criticism.
