Every once in a while, I have to dip myself in 90′s nostalgia and tonight was a full Belly night. I have probably seen Belly 20 times and I never get tired of it. I wouldn’t describe the acting as quality. I mean Nas and DMX aren’t really Oscar contenders. This directorial debut by Hype Williams definitely feels like a 90 minute music video, but really what is so bad about that?
In case you need convincing, here are three good reasons to watch Belly.1) T-Boz is in it.Tommy’s not gonna be shit but what he is.
2) There is a totally incomprehensible Jamaican drug lord named Ox who has a giant bowl of herb on his coffee table.
Bumbaclot3) There is a rad female assassin named Chiquita.
