      While Eminem and Brittney Murphy, along with Mikai Phiffer are very talented, I have to wonder if the movie they starred in, “8 Mile” which was featured in theaters in 2002, was really a film worth watching. The film itself I believe was trying to do something positive by showing the struggles that some people face while following they’re dream, but is that all? Unfortunately no. The talent was there, but the wrong message was sent to the young teenage audience who would be drawn to the film

      unquestionably.

      This film is about a guy who is looking to make it as a rapper. The only problem is, he’s got a serious case of stage fright. Throughout the movie he struggles with this fear in order to prove himself as the only white rapper at this local rapping match. Along the way, he and his friends take part in paint balling cop cars, carrying fire arms, the main character watches his mother have sexual relations with a man and having his little sister watch him being beaten up ...


      • on the side of the yard in the trailer park that they live in. In all reality, this main character that Eminem takes on is not a positive role model for the youth of our country to be watching.

        This film portrays language, and actions that are shown as being acceptable where there are no consequences for their actions. Especially when the main character is taking part in the is action and is someone like Eminem who is a pronoun rapper and idol to some without a doubt. In

        all honestly, I don’t think this film showed positive morals or values to the young audience that would be drawn to it. It wasn’t something I would watch again, and I don’t think it’s something that impressionable youth should watch either. What kind of message is being sent to the teenage audience, who are fans of Eminem, watching him take on a role where he involves himself in crude language, activity and mannerism that are not at all appropriate in society and should not be looked at as role model material.
