Movie Reviews

Beyond brilliant
Chris Sutton | Middletown, NY United States | 05/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I got to see a preview of Sticky Fingaz' directorial debut, A Day in the Life, and it's a must see for any fan of hip hop, action, drama, or movies in general. The movie is unique in that the entire length is rapped. Sort of like Romeo and Juliet being done entirely in poetry, not a single word is spoken in this film unless it rhymes. An old lady rings Sticky Fingaz' door to complain? She raps. Everyone. Every second. And it doesn't get old.

Anyone who is a fan of Sticky Fingaz or Onyx knows their music, while very violent, was very story-driven and movie-like. This is like a visual version of that. Sticky Fingaz is a talented rapper to say the least, but it's really interesting to see old bar patrons, elderly white ladies, and some pretty famous actors rapping too. And since Sticky Fingaz wrote every single line, none of the lyrics are wack. I really recommend this movie. It's an independent film but the amount of work that went into it seems incredible."
True to Hip Hop

"I thought the movie was very good.It was true to hip hop and the lyrics were top notch and on point.The only bad thing I can say about the movie is that I cant see the events that transpire in the movie all happening in one day before dusk.It just didnt make any since. Other than that I would definatly call it a true to real hip hop film. Big ups to Kirk "Sticky Fingerz" Jones."
Very good story that makes sense...

"this movie actually makes more sense than black cinema movies that dont have any rappin at all!! lol. sticky fingaz is really a genius for this one. he makes it easy for you to follow the story as you listen to each person rap and it doesnt get tiring listening to them rap for 90 min straight. i am a huge hip hop fan but i still was skeptical about this when i first heard it was coming. we all know stick can rap really good but idk about how a movie would turn out with all that going on. a great success with a lot of a list actors. omar epps, mekhi phifer, clarence williams 3, bokime woodbine, michael rappaport,faizon love, and of course rappers like fredro, treach, kurupt, tash, and even ray j. really good movie i was entertained and i usually dont like watching a lot of the low budget black cinimea movies."
