So today was the final day of the three part biopic of the LEGENDARY group New Edition!!! I THOROUGHLY enjoyed parts 2 and 3 just as much as I LOVED part 1!!! Several questions that I had over the years were answered!!! It was interesting to see the individual struggles that the group members faced!! What had me MOST IMPRESSED was the fact that no matter what they went through individually or collectively as a group they ALWAYS FOUND A WAY TO STILL HAVE GENUINE LOVE FOR EACH OTHER!!! As we all saw....they had some KNOCK DOWN DRAG OUT FIGHTS with one another!!! However, they still found their way back to each other...which says a lot!!! I also had NO IDEA that Bobby Brown was not the ONLY group member who struggled with substance abuse. Ricky Bell QUIETLY struggled with addiction issues. I also did not realize that Mike Bivans and Ralph Tresvant had issues with one another for years!!! This biopic was VERY WELL DONE and really seemed to CAPTURE THEIR STORY!!! I loved every minute of it and was reminded of how ICONIC this group is!!!
Group dynamics are REAL!!! I could only imagine how difficult it was to come together as six different personalities and achieve fame at SUCH A YOUNG AGE!!! It is almost a recipe for DISASTER!!! I was a part of a singing group for some years and we had our level of difficulties at times....mind you, we never made it BIG LOL!!!
The casting for this biopic was SPOT ON and I have to give props to all of the actors and actresses that played a role in this movie!!! JOB WELL DONE!!! Bryshere did a very good job of making me FORGET that he plays Hakeem Lyon from Empire!!!! La La Anthony also did a GREAT JOB!!! I love how all of the actors who depicted New Edition played their roles!!! This was THE BEST BIOPIC that I have ever seen done!! Second to this would be TLC's biopic!!!
What were your thoughts on the biopic as a whole?
