Hustle & Flow

I enjoyed Hustle & Flow a lot. I always enjoy the character actors in the background of scenes, and Taryn Manning, Taraji P. Henson, and Paula Jai Parker did a great job back there, staying out of the way of the leads until it was time to get a scene of their own, but always doing something that made them feel like real people and not just window-dressing. I also like movies that don't just take the easy way out, and when Key's wife showed up with sandwiches, having decided to try to make the best of things, I was very pleased.

Ludacris continues to entertain me whenever he's on screen.
