8 Mile

8 Mile - a review by Dave Fischer

8 Mile is an exciting foray into the world of contemporary hip-hip, outdated artificial cultural divides, and fine dining.

The story is that a rag-tag group of hip-hop artists has formed out of the simmering race war that is Detroit's "8 mile" stretch of road. The group overcomes the hostility and suspicion of their communites to forge a new group, dedicated to music, truth, and fine French cuisine.

"M&M", "Iced Tea", "Jam Master Jay", and "Vanilla Ice" represent four very differect facets of the underground scene, but when they work together it's like a well-tuned machine. Whether it's on stage blasting out the beats, on a street corner breaking up a fight, or in the kitchen whipping up a delicate Dugléré Brill Fillet, they quickly earn everyone's respect, irregardless of their side of the road.

And if you enjoy the movie, make sure to order the cookbook from Amazon! This well illustrated and easy to follow book makes delicacies from the finest restaurants in Paris accessable to anyone willing to put a little bit of time and effort into their dinner preperations. Certain to be a popular gift this holiday season.
