Human life may be precious, but the way it gets taken away is not always the same.
precious is a film with actors who are not all seasoned actors, that is extremely dark and extremely ghetto.
The scene is a riot of excess, soaring voice decibels—and precious.
mid-13c., from Old French precios "precious, costly, honorable, of great worth" (11c., Modern French précieux), from Latin pretiosus "costly, valuable," from pretium "value, worth, price" (see price (n.)). Meaning "over-refined" in English first recorded late 14c. In Johnson's day, it also had a secondary inverted sense of "worthless." Related: Preciously; preciousness.
