Here's something a little unusual I wanted to talk about.
A couple of months ago Netflix released something a concert film/documentary thing called Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids. I was so hyped it even got a trending hashtag and everything #TimberlakeAndChill. So yea, I heard about it, got hyped, checked it out and now I wanna talk about it because I'll do whatever the fuck I want.
I'm not gonna get too in depth here because why would I? This is a fucking concert film where Justin Timberlake performs at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the last night of his 20/20 Experience World Tour back in 2014.
That's all this is. You get a couple of minutes in the beginning to get to know all the people involved in this concert, the backup band, the dancers, etc.
It's pretty basic concert film stuff but what I noticed while watching it is that it doesn't do the same thing that other concert films do. At least the ones I've see.
Usually during the movie it shows you the actual concert and then cuts back and forth to various interviews of certain people on the days leading up to the concert. Not here. This is just the concert and I like that.
You met the band in the beginning and then it gets right into the music. You don't need to get to know JT before the concert starts because you already know JT. He's one of the biggest artists on the planet and his album that this concert is about, The 20/20 Experience is in my opinion one of the better pop albums to come in the past decade. I suggest checking it out if you haven't because like all concerts, it helps to know the songs in order to fully enjoy it.
And this is not the full concert. If it were the full concert this movie would be like 4 hours long and it's not. It's only 90 minutes long and it doesn't overstay its welcome.
