VH1? Was that really VH1?
The actors were chosen with such precision. The story was just enough for us to get a clear picture of what they went through throughout their career, yet no too much as to taint their images.
As the film started, T-Boz's personality seemed forced and the dance moves seemed fake. However, as the film progressed, Lil' Mama and KeKe Palmer channeled their inner TLC and did an amazing job with the dance moves and acting.
Sure, it wasn't Oscar-worthy, it didn't bring us to bawling tears, but anyone who lived through the 90s and was a part of that genre of music felt a time capsule effect through the accuracy of the movie.
It was a definite refresher of why everyone fell in love with this group initially and served as an "aphrodisiac" (if you will) for their new music. Though the group clearly could never be the same, the world saw the passion which brought this group to stardom. Their story serves as a motivation to keep on keeping on... NO MATTER WHAT COMES IN YOUR WAY!
Noteworthy: It was respectful that they did not play out the death of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, as expected. They honored her and it was an act of love and an act of loyalty. These young ladies truly had love for each other and that was clearly depicted through the film.
Side note: Was anyone else expecting some visual of Usher and Chilli? Maybe it was wishful thinking; you know we are naturally attracted to drama.
Here's to welcoming TLC back and hoping that they will have another swift run in the industry. Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes will forever live on through their music. The presentation gets a 4 out of 5... just because... they didn't make it as juicy as we kind of hoped for!
Get that album "20"! Check out the single, "Meant to Be".
