why idlewild the movie will fail...

On Monday, I had the chance to catch VH-1's music video countdown show, in which they had OutKast spout off about their new movie, "Idlewild," before introducing the video into the top 10, or wherever it was. During the interview, Andre 3000 -- who did most of the talking -- pretty much gave away the entire plot of his flick, then realizing what he had done, refused to explain the ending, though you could pretty much figure which direction he was going to go in.

Whether or not "Idlewild" will be a disaster has yet to be seen, but I can't help but think that the movies ninth place ranking has something to do with the fact that eccentric 3000 basically saved all of his fans $9 each by rambling too much.

Now I'm not certain if the world needs an OutKast movie per se (surely a full-length Scooby-Doo and Harlem Globetrotters movie is far more profitable), but I don't think the studio, the group, or any other person involved with the flick can blame bootleggers and YouTube for this misstep.
