8 Mile, the 1 hour 58 minute music video for “Lose Yourself.” I don’t know if I’d consider myself a huge fan rap, but when I hear a good rap, I really like it. Eminem is definitely up there as far as good rappers are concerned. So when I found out about this movie I was curious. Like everyone else, I knew every word to “Lose Yourself” (it even won an Oscar). Before even seeing the movie. 8 Mile is probably the best movie made by and about a specific singer. Most of the time they suck. 8 Mile manages to capture who Eminem is as a rapper and person. Slim Shady can act fairly well. Which makes me wonder why he didn’t act in more movies. The rap battles are probably the best part of the movie. It’s definitely surprising that this movie worked. I promise you’ll lose yourself in 8 Mile.
