My Tyler Perry liking has sort of taken a weird turn over the times. At one time I simply laughed at his films and passed them off as pointless (and awful) pieces of “entertainment” for folks that didn’t really set the bar too high when going to to the theaters.
I don’t know why I was so dismissive, because at that point I really only had watched bits and pieces of his films — and maybe one film entirely.
I just didn’t get his humor or appeal.
But then I actually decided to give him a fair shake and to my surprise I found out that Perry and his films are actually quite enjoyable.
His latest Madea film — A Madea Christmas, had me laughing often and encouraged me to checkout more of his filmography.
I did and found myself hot and cold with most of his Madea films overall, but I always enjoyed the character. I just had problems with some of the pacing and general storylines and supporting characters.
But Madea almost always delivered and lately she’s been getting better and better.
Enter this new teaser for Boo! A Madea Halloween. It’s short and sweet, but comical and exactly the type of direction Perry should be taking the character/franchise in.
I’m totally on board.
