    Beloved...yeah I remember when this came out, I saw it in the movie theater. And quite a few folks were sitting there like what in the *@!! is this? Yes, the movie did present some issues and scenes that you had to figure out, can't remember them exactly cause it has been a number of years since I've seen it. But that didn't bother me about the picture, it actually made me get into it more.

    That was some freaky stuff in that movie, I definitely wouldn't watch it a second time, Oprah is kind of odd herself or, at least to me. I just seen that movie last year.

    BELOVED...

    is a great movie. Most people won't realize it until they really understand the movie. It's DEEPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP.

    I loved it.

    The only major problem that some people could have had with the movie is that it doesn't do a very good job of unveiling the story quick enough in the beginning to give people a sense of what's going on. But, if you pay close attention, it becomes apparent that the girl is a ghost of the daughter she killed when she was younger.
