I saw this movie today and I really liked it. Terrecen Howard did an amazing job in this movie. The music is awesome too.

I am so looking forward to seeing this movie - I've loved Terrence Howard in everything that he's done (even the cheesy sitcoms)....

I really wasn't looking forward to seeing Hustle and Flow because it looked kinda cheesy to me, but I went to the premiere cuz I have some friends involved in the movie and they invited me...surprisingly I really enjoyed it! It was weird for me to see T. Howard rapping because I know what a great musician he is, and I just couldn't picture him rapping at all. He did an ok job with it, but I prefer him as a musician. This one is soooooo much better than Glitter and I even like it way better than 8Mile

Oh, and as for Rize...I love David LaChappelle as a photographer and a music video director...I'm just not so sure about his movie directing skills right now...I hated that movie.
