Little Rudy Huxtable is all grown up, isn't she?

    I've enjoyed most of Tyler Perry's movies except Meet the Browns (it was a complete train wreck) and I haven't seen The Family That Preys yet. His films are by no means high art but they make you laugh and they offer some inspiration. When Madea isn't pulling out a gun it's the semi-Christian morals that shine. That and the opportunity to see some big name black stars in leading roles. When it comes down to it I respect Tyler Perry because he's one of the few filmmakers who has the creative power to come up with an idea and see it all the way to production.

    i enjoyed the family that preys, you should see it. meet the browns was bad. i think it is his best film. his earlier ones were ok but dragged on and whatnot.

    off-subject tambay i wish i could just leave you a note or send you a message but anyways i will put this here. i was plucking out my afro this morning and i thought maybe us black cinema lovers should each do our own blaxploitation posters. lol

    I've despised most of TP's movies... just not my thing... but, I applaud his success, and the fact that he's kept many black performers employed... I do hope that he evolves as a storyteller, if only to ensure career longevity.

    MLM - That sounds like a great idea. We should do it!! Let me think about it...

    l feel like he is evolving because the family that preys was good and felt different from his other movies so l hope he keeps on going

    I'm sorry I think Tyler Perry is just a few hairs shy of being completely talentless.

    His direction is as inspired and forward thinking as an assembly line factory worker. Everything is formulaic and molded for Hollywood specifications. Not a single frame has taken a cinematic risk or presented a fresh, interesting take on anything.

    There is nothing "inspiring" about Tyler Perry's movies- they drip with saccharine and contrived melodrama. The humor is, well, not humorous. There is never a moment in any of his films that is remotely vague or ambiguous or genuinely complex. And I can't stand the thinly-veiled religious stuff.
