Get Rich Or Die Tryin.... watched it



Hey guys, so today i decided not to go to one of my classes, and i was convinced by some lady friends of mine to check out this movie. I had some time to kill before work, and since it was only $4.25 i decided to check out the movie!


HONESTLY....... before the movie i hated 50, but now i've gotten some respect for him, i was very surprised/impressed with the movie. Its a really good gangster film, and the story line and everything was well done. I went in with the intention that i'd wanna hit my head against the wall, and i came out with the complete opposite feeling!



Check it out!

How many times does he say, G-G-G-G-G-UNIT?

In an interview, he actually said he lost money making this film. As in he could have made more. What a fackin douche bag. You make millions of dollars for talking shit, and your complaining about money. Get a real ****ing job. Sorry bout the rant.

No i saw the movie with my imaginary friends.... hahaha, nah, i was convinced to go with some ladies, thats the main reason i went!

I know, i saw some of the comercials, and i was like 'maybe i'd watch it, if it wasn't 50' but its a good movie. Its the most violence i've seen in any movie for some time now. He doesn't say G Unit ever, its just loosesly based on his life. And theres even some references to Ja Rule in the movie... hahaha, if you catch it, its pretty funny! The entire movie was filmed in T.O. and WASAGA, haha.

This guy has done it all, i don't think theres any media left for him to cover when hes game comes out (if it isn't out already).

Just cause he raps about people he has beef with, and talking about his magic stick, don't make him hard working, or working for that matter. I dont believe atheletes/music artists are workers. Unless they take care of their financial, and marketing and such, then its different. But to just show up to go on stage and record in a studio doesn't mean anything. The people that do the running around, and the paper work, and publicists. They are working. Same thing with Lil Jon, he doesnt have a good voice, he takes a song like 'Gasolina' and yells, yeeeahhhh, ooookayy, whhhhat once in a while, and he's famous. Sure I laugh when I see the Dave Chappelle skit with Lil Jon, but I dont see it as work.

Atheletes arent working either. For instance, hockey players, they dont work, they play. I play hockey too, but I gotta work to pay to play. I gotta work to buy skates, and sticks, etc. They still get paid if their injured, and their making crazy money. If I get hurt, I still try to go to work if its possible, because I need my paycheck to survive. Hockey is a recreational sport, not a job.

Actors are borderline. Because they spend more of the time going over scenes, and actually acting, although like mentioned its borderline. Because their "workdays" aren't "working". They're playing pretend, thats what acting is all about.

Work is described as: Physical or mental effort or activity directed toward the production or accomplishment of something.

Do you have any idea how much work you have to put in to be a pro hockey player? Do you have any clue how physically demanding it is?

You do realize you just contradicted yourself with the definition. You think its easy to write music? It obviously requires more than enough mental effort, for what? The entertainment industry isn't an easy biz, you think you could just go out everyday and perform, maybe? But can you actually do all your own music or material, etc?

I understand where your coming from, its not as stressing as something such as construction, but thats only physically tiring. Lil' Jon, i think is a moron, but that man busts his ass off, he has produced so many different tracks, producers in general work there asses off, cause it doesn't take 20mins to make a killer beat. The difference is that most of these people actually ENJOY what they're doing as work. Same thing applies to sports, its very physically tiring.

Now, i don't think they should be getting pais as much as they do, cause its pretty sad that a doctor (who saves lives, and goes through years of school) makes a fraction of what most of these big time athletes make in a year. But they still all work!

Don't get me wrong, Im not saying some of them are not talented, or that song writting is easy, but nowadays, the song quality has dropped significantly. Example, my humps/hump whatever its called by the black eyed peas. IT SUCKS. Theres no moral, no message, its fackin stupid. Producers who are also musicians/singers/rappers are a different story though. Like I mentioned, they are actually working. I agree with the fact that people saving lives are getting paid much less than groups/performers with no talent. In the song mentioned before, I dont know how many times "My humps is said, to kill dead air. Thats not talent, thats bullshit. Im no performer/singer by any means, so it would be useless for me to try to get into singing/acting, but living in a 10mil house driving expensive cars that I earned the money for playing pretend or singing some songs, doesn't exactly qualify to me as work. Either way, I know this is going to start a debate, and there are going to be people who don't share my view, and I accept that.

Ya, again, i agree completely, music has gone to shit, theres no arguing that. But at the same time, you can't really clal it pointless either, cause think about how many songs way back when have been STUPID (by that i mean, there was no moral, or message)

Ya, and to be on the safe side, just take back what you said, so this doesn't turn into a 10 page thread about how tallented rap stars are, hehehe

I know it is, I play hockey myself. I also know that you enjoy arguing with me, and thats fine, because you bring up valid point, and that makes you a good conversationalist. But I think you missed my point, Im not saying its demanding, but it should be done out of fun, not for a paycheck. There's players out there, that are amazing, but never make it because of politics, money issues, etc. I still dont believe it constitutes for a job.

What do you do for a living? Oh Im a hockey player. I doubt you see where Im going with this, but I thought I'd try to explain my view to you. The only thing Job related about sports and entertainment is the jobs it provides for the people who make it happen. Cameramen, producers, prop specialists, stunt people, marketers. The people that set-up interviews, and research on who their interviewing, those are the people doing "Work"

Very true, getting back on topic if you say its a good movie, I will go watch it and make my own conclusion based on that. If that movie can provide any enlightenment to me, I will definetly post, and comment the good and bad on it.
