    It is strange that they making a movie about Hendrix but not allowed to actually use any of his music in the film.

    • Linkz

      thats what im saying it isnt compete like why would i go see it if the music isnt there o_0 is it a unofficial biopic ?

      • To support 3 stacks?
        But yeah though, they should have worked with the family!

      • Pirate7X

        Yes. Problem is the family (as much as I support Black fam estates being extra protective of artist’s legacies considering how exploitive devils can be; shouts to the Basquiat estate) has had apparently earnest companies pitch them and they turn them down for near 3 decades. I read a statement from the Hendrix estate that they were going to do a film their way, where is it? That was nearly 20 years ago…

        I know that Hughes Brothers were in development with them with Terrence Howard as Jimi but that fell through. I know that they can’t be expecting anyone to show some angel image of Jimi like how the MLK estate allegedly wanted from Oliver Stone. Everyone knew of Jimi’s substance use, big deal everybody did that then. Many reports have said he used to abuse women when he was drunk; maybe you could alter that so it’s shown but not overdone like B.I.G. with Kim & Faith in Notorious. I don’t know man.

        Wait to long and don’t work with your people, and you’ll end up with bullcrap like 42. Robinson estate didn’t like what Spike Lee proposed and got that bs about Jackie Robinson. Same nonsense with the James Brown biopic coming this summer with same actor and director from 42. Wack white-made bio biopic on the Godfather of Soul coming soon to a theatre near you….

        Hendrix Estate & Experience Inc. needs to stop bullshucking and develop that biopic or this will continue, other companies writing Jimi’s story.

      • 3K = best Jimmy IMHO.

        The estate lost out, they should have struck while the iron was hot!

        Terrance may be a better actor, ok, no doubt that he is, but 3K has the look & his strange mannerisms are a perfect fit IMHO.

      Andre Benjamin have been trying to do a Jimi Hendrix movie for 10 years, originally it was meant to be a typical biopic but they were never able to get the rights to the music for some reason so they decided to make it like ALI during just a significant year of Hendrix’s life… And they had to go with BEFORE he had a recorddeal beause of not having rights to songs…

  • Worth a watch.

  • Pirate7X

    Not terrible, I applaud A-3000 for his artistic riskiness. But now knowing that coon John Ridley is behind this, I will hold off on giving the cash up to see this (check 2006 Esquire article Ridley wrote on “Niggers…”). And doing it without the Hendrix estate involved, big -2.

  • Dan_Tebasco

    I like Andre Benjamin as an actor alot but these clips aren’t that impressive to me, he sounds more like a black Dracula than a brit-rocker to me :/ And he has been planning to play Jimi for over 10 years so he has had plenty of time to prepare… But I haven’t seen that many interviews with Jimi tho perhaps he sounds like that, he sounds hella posh tho in the clips…
