    It's actually a pretty accurate parody of the woke left.

    So I've heard. I'd like to see it for myself, sometimes even if a movie misses the mark a bit I can give credit to a director for attempting an ambitious, interesting project that somehow went off the rails.

    The acting was good. The script was awful.

    Fuck I love how rustled some people are. It will hardly change anything at all. If black lead films make more money than white lead films then it will change but that won't happen. Some Jordan Peele films will do well but how many white directors are there by comparison in Hollywood? White producers still control Hollywood, unless they are going to sack themselves nothing will change significantly. Spike Lee has been casting black leads for decades and no one has had an issue with that.

    Spike Lee films are actually good though, for the most part. Great time to rewatch Do the Right Thing.

    It's not like they didn't ask for it. I keep wondering why white people are insisting on villainizing themselves. :p

    If Jordan Peele makes more shit films then he'll eventually be out of a job like anyone else. Being black won't save him. People are being naive if they think Hollywood will ever be about anything than money. Films like Black Panther and Get Out did well so that means they'll be more black led casts but if they don't work out financially it will swing back real fast.

    Has Spike Lee done anything half-way decent since "When the Levees Broke"?

    I feel like Coogler owns the mantle of best black director right now, although Tyler Perry's success probably puts him at the top of most impressive and did it in a very blaxploitation approach of forging his own path.

    Yep, but he still had to learn the craft and put in the work.

    tell me about it, lots not very talented white folks in positions of power in media companies when the minorities that work under them are clearly more talented. Bon Appetite’s YouTube channel issues are a recent great example.

    Have worked in network tv for over a decade. Sat through at least a 1,000 castings. This is statement is dumb. 99.99999999999% of people who step in front of a camera are unwatchable.

    Of course, but he had to work a little less hard to get to where he got, as opposed to someone who didn't have such connections to open doors for them.

    He did Black Panther which was ... ehhh pretty much a paint-by-numbers superhero movie. Nothing really great about it, but fun none the less. Creed and Fruitvale Station were excellent though.

    The long take fight scenes in Creed were impressive
