I gotta agree with Alma

I gotta agree with Alma Marie. The power of this song is not just in the words but the power and emotion conveyed. This was flat for me. I like Christina Aguilera's version better--more powerful and raw for me than this version. And is that the only kind of film B is planning to do? Retro biopics, setting or characters. How about acting in a film where the characters and situations are contemporary and she's got to create her character than her taking on the persona of an existing character?

...And B, you should not have

...And B, you should not have stolen the song "If I were a girl" from BC Jean. Her vocals and version are far superior to yours. Folks, check out the original version of this song at http//bcjean.net

A very ordinary version of

A very ordinary version of "At Last". A real disappointment. The song is just sung, but with no expression and no feeling. I have heard much better versions,(eg. Etta herself and the late great Jimmy Scott). This is why JHud outshone her in "Dreamgirls". JHud can sing with intonation and depth and feeling. Sorry B.

this movie looks like it is

this movie looks like it is going to be great. although i thought leela james would have been a better fit as far as voice goes....but beyonce looks like she played to role really well

This ish does not happen when JLo is rocking a album and a movie...nobody says she should just sit back and let Angelina have all of the roles...only in the Black world would we restict someone like that....I hope this movie is a hit and Bey blow every hater minds away, but then of course you would still find something to hate on her about...Support Sanna, Gabrielle, Angela Basset, Kelly Roland, Michelle Williams, Wendy Williams and Beyonce; its possinble you know.

Just because she hung out at

Just because she hung out at different drug centers doesn't mean that helped her improve her acting, unless they held acting classes. The chick is still dry as all hell on screen. I predict it would head straight to redbox after three weeks.

I'm sorry they could have gotten someone else to play Etta James..Beyonce just doesnt do it nor does she have the vocal capabilities

Another thing, after googling Etta James im even more convinced that Queen Latifah couldve pulled off this role!!!! Lets see what happens........

My new obsession is going on

My new obsession is going on youtube and watching the "male" version of Single Ladies!!! I hope she does her thing on this movie because if not she is going to have a real Mariah Carey Glitter situation!! As far as the song, i think vocally Christinas version is much better!

I give Beyonce credit for

I give Beyonce credit for taking acting classes and having the courage and confidence to continue to try to master the craft of acting (in her new videos and in movies) while simultaneously fulfilling her dream of appearing in big screen movies. It appears to me to be the route she is taking to acquire enough serious acting credits to try her hand at Broadway. I hope she improves with experience and achieves all of her goals. I wish her the best.

Bey could have done a better

Bey could have done a better job in this song or could she really! I think she is perfect for the crazy in love or stuff like that, but except for dangerously in love, she cannot give any emotions when she sings! sorry! She needs more soul! As for the pictures, she really looks believable! I never saw a movie with Bee on it so I cannot say that she is a bad actress! There is a lot of bad actors in hollywood too so one more is not a big deal! lol

Hm! I'm kinda lovin' The Thicky Thickness Mrs. Carter. I can't wait for the movie. On the song rendition? Well, from a vocal prespective I think Christina Aguilera has a more soulful sound, a more sultry sound for that song. Bey is too gentle with it as compared to Etta. I think Bey was a close look alike choice but Christina would have slauttered the vocals. No hatin' just speaking a little truth. TEAM BEY all day.
