Movie Review: What’s Love Got to Do with It(1993)

This movie must be one of my all times favorite. I have watched this movie almost 50 times. What’s Love Got to Do with It, is a movie that I think is a staple in a black child’s life. I know that sounds strange, but it is a movie that me and family watch all the time. This movie introduced me to Tina Turner, and I am forever grateful for that. This movie is the story of Tina Turner’s life, and it is truly breathtaking. My only problem with the movie is that I wish the movie were a little bit longer. There is so much that was missing and things I wanted to learn more about. I eventually learn them on my own, but I think they needed to be told.

This is a movie that everybody must see, and I just love this movie. Angela Bassett and Lawrence Fishburne did not play Ike and Tina, they were Ike and Tina. They both deserved everything that they got with these roles. Watch this movie whenever you get a chance, and you will not regret it.

Poem: Stone

Stop the tears, they no longer hurt.

You cannot do that to me anymore.

This heart of mind that was so pure and full of joy, is not stone.

The kind that cannot break, and it all because of you.

I gave you my all, but it never was good enough.

You were tired and so was I.

I kept fighting hoping for better days, but you left me out in the rain with no hope for tomorrow.

I never knew hurt like this.

I no longer care about your feelings; your tears can no longer break me.

You made me cold, and now I am stone.

The heat we had is now just smoke from the flames.

You turn my love into something that I no longer want to feel.

Do you feel bad?

No, and that is why I am gone.

This is no longer yours to burn.

You made me stone.
