now that HalftimeA new documentary about Jennifer Lopez has been announced by Netflix, Internet movie fans can’t seem to figure it out.
The polarizing reactions can be summed up nicely in the first two comments on the streaming service’s Twitter post about the film.
In the first response, a user asks the question “why do we need a document about her?” and shares a video montage of a skeptical-looking anime character.
To which another person, obviously a fan of the singer and actor, replied: “because he has the point, he is an icon, he is a legend and it is time”. […] NOW COME NOW,” while sharing a video of some of Lopez’s iconic dance moves.
There were even more petty exchanges between Twitter users as one user commented: “Aww man I remember perfectly when I ordered this. Literally no one said.
Another person’s brief response was simply: “Thanks for your opinion, Bob with two followers!”
A similar exchange unfolded soon after when one user commented, “It’s already failing.”
Someone else’s applause was reduced to: “And you are…?”
For aspiring New York politician Frangell Basora, seeing a “Bronx girl” star in a documentary really makes her native community feel “seen and represented.”
As the name suggests, Halftime will focus, in part, on Lopez’s 2021 Super Bowl halftime show, which he performed alongside Colombian singer Shakira. It will also be an opportunity for Lopez to reflect on her career and will also discuss his performance at President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Lopez originally broke into the mainstream at the intersection of movies and music by taking on the title role in the biographical drama. selena about the late iconic Tejano singer born in Texas Selena Quintanilla in 1997.
