Our review of Lee Daniels The Butler
The Butler would have stood with the best of these historical bio-opps in that the uniformity of the performances in the picture move it into the early Oscar lead.
As in most pictures of this type you really have no idea how much is made u or how much is based on reality but here you really don't care. Your too wrapped up in the performances on the screen.
Would we pay to see it is the question. The answer is probably not even though it may be a a eventual Oscar winner. We often go to movies we like but that we would not pay to see.
Great movies often become great when they hit the small screen because of the limited audience they find on the big screen and we think that The Butler will do well but its fame will come when it hits TV not the big screen.
Pictures are from the premiere we only wish we had had something other then cellphones to take pictures with.
