Just Because You Make Great Music Videos…[RANT]

Re: A post on Facebook about bad films and my reply to someone who posted the below film

"BELLY was SO FREEKIN BAD. Some music video directors need to stick to directing music videos. Just because you can direct an exciting visual video doesn't mean you can properly convey the nuances required in a narrative film."

For the record: Belly is a 1998 film, the film directorial debut of music video director Hype Williams. Filmed in New York City as an urban drama, the film stars rappers DMX and Nas, alongside with Taral Hicks, Method Man dancehall artist Louie Rankin, R&B singer T-Boz. Besides starring in the film, Nas also narrates and collaborated with Hype Williams on the screenplay.-Wikipedia
