"Make a Movie" is the first single from American rapper Twista's eighth studio album The Perfect Storm. It was released on August 24, 2010.[1] The track charted in the United States and a music video was shot.

Background[edit]

The song was put down as being unoriginal, as there been other songs titled "Make a Movie" about making sex tapes, such as "Make a Movie" by Chamillionaire, which Twista is featured on.[2] The original version of the track featured T-Pain on the hook but the final version features Chris Brown.[2] The collaboration was said to be unexpected and geared towards a pop audience.[3] Twista explained that the collaboration came around due to mutual respect between the two.[4] The song was described by Rap-Up as "Twista spiting his rapid flow while Chris Brown croons over the seductive track."[5]

Critical reception[edit]

The critical reception to "Make A Movie" was generally mixed. Allmusic's David Jeffries was also critical: "when Twista compares his shutter speed to his sex speed on “Make a Movie,” it’s a cringe-worthy moment even R. Kelly would avoid."[6] DJBooth.net also wrote a mixed review: "Make a Movie, a quasi-R rated jam that brings on recovering superstar Chris Brown for a Kardashian inspired ode to cinematic intercourse. Like much of Twista’s more radio ready work, it’s not particularly impressive, but unless you’re dead set against having a good time you won’t be able to stop your head from nodding."[7] William E. Ketchum III of HipHopDX wrote a more positive review: "Even though “Make A Movie” is formulaic, it wins with its cheesy porno references, a solid Chris Brown chorus, and a silky instrumental."[8] RapReviews was also positive about the song: "there are songs like "Make a Movie" featuring Chris Brown which harken back to the freak flop flow of "Slow Jamz," with the perfectly contradictory combination of fast slung lyrics to slow quiet storm grooves."[9]

Music video[edit]

The music video debuted on MTV on September 8, 2010.[10] It was directed by Colin Tilley.[11] It was described as tame compared to the subject matter.[12]
