“Justin Bieber: Never Say Never”

Movie Trailer Review

By our guest blogger, Joe Oliveto

I don’t get it. I officially don’t get it. I may be out of touch with the current pop music scene—I heard Lady Gaga dozens of times in the mall before I even realized that it wasn’t some generic Madonna song that I’d been hearing—and I’ll admit that up until last March, I had no idea what a Justin Bieber was.

But I’m still baffled by how he can be so popular that he’s already got a movie about his life being released. In 3-D, of course.

For all the tween girls who haven’t had the opportunity to see him in concert yet, The Beebz is coming to a screen near you. With what looks to be a mixture of home videos, concert footage, and behind-the-scenes films shot with 3-D cameras, we’ll get to see how a little—very, very little—boy from the middle of nowhere rose to global superstardom.

I may watch the movie just to get the answer to that eternally baffling mystery.

However, if we’re going to seriously critique this trailer, it must be said that the movie doesn’t look all that promising anyway. Whether you are a fan of Bieber, it really just appears to be a high-budget promo for his career. A film about a child becoming a star could actually be insightful, but audiences don’t appear to be in for that kind of experience.

True, maybe the target audience of this movie doesn’t exactly care about whether or not it is of any greater value to them as people, but it’s sad that professional critics may have to sit down and take this feature-length advertisement seriously.

Now if only someone would make a hard-hitting biopic about the rise and fall of Kriss Kross. We even have a title already: “[Backwards] Jersey Boys.”
