Thing I never understood is that these sort of simplistic and silly comedies often get slammed, while movies from the early days of the genre (the Jim Abrahams and Leslie Nielsen type of comedies) are being loved and considered to be classics, even though the humor and comedy of the movies is just the same. For me it's very simple; when a comedy amuses me and makes me laugh I consider it to be a good and effective one, no matter how bad and silly the movie got done.It's just the sort of movie in which things simply just happen, without often share a clear connection with each other and without featuring a real solid or clear main-story. It's really simplistic, especially story-wise but lots of its moments are simply funny and therefor this movie does work out as a comedy.I really won't pretend like "Pootie Tang" is the greatest thing ever. It's often just too simplistic for that and it's story and acting is definitely too much lacking. but there is no denying that this movie simply serves its purpose and I definitely can say that this is a movie that genuinely made me laugh because of how silly and crazy it at times got. Still, at the same time it's also true that the movie doesn't quite live up to its full potential. I mean, the movie never really lives up to its great and promising beginning. But luckily the movie is too short to start to further decline, below the level of average.Still the funniest Chris Rock comedy I've seen in years.6/10
For the service's launch, Microsoft is offering 48 movies for rent, with a handful of them available in high-definition (720p) downloads as well as standard-definition (480p). Downloaded movies remain on the hard drive for up to two weeks, but once a user begins watching the movie, it is deleted 24 hours later. For that period, however, the movie can be viewed as many times as the purchaser wants.
There are two pricing structures set up for the film rentals. New movie rentals cost 320 Microsoft points ($4) for a standard-definition download, while the high-definition option will run 480 Microsoft points ($6). For older movies, the 480p download will set users back 240 points ($3), while classics in 720p are offered for 360 Microsoft points ($4.50). 2b1af7f3a8
