Just got back from seeing 8 Mile. It was exceptional...I loved it. By all means, go and see this movie this first weekend and help contribute to what will surely be a big, big box office total. Eminem is fabulous and you don't want to miss his performance. His portrayal of this character is understated but powerful. It reminded me of our first glimpse of Sylvester Stallone at the height of his powers in Rocky and you surely get the feeling that Eminem is capable of much more. Plus, it's a fun, uplifting movie that suggests that you can accomplish anything if you have the desire and dedication.
