Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

No, don't think Spike was involved with that. It was a satirical movie with a Cabaret element if I remember correctly. It's vague since I only seen it once epochs ago. Must be pseudo hypomnesia at work.

YES! Don't remember how bad the movie was, only caught glimpses of it on tv at 2 in the morning. The visuals fucked with my mind. I had to make sure the Director was actually black because I feared for his safety lol

TCM remake will be good/great without all that watered down violence, specially because the charm of the original was how ridicule the violence look. And the the montage, god, a guy with epilepsy will move the camera less

If Sidney Lumet was still alive and a member of this Forum, he'd be justified in tracking you down and giving you a beating 'Jay and Silent Bob' style for even making that correlation.



Network is BOSS

Supposedly, even Chris Rock was there and said a joke of some kind that was very critical and overall negative of the film. And then his rant about QT and Django was ridiculous. Yeah, QT rewrote history a little, but Lee is just jealous that 1) he didn't do it first and 2) someone else with a heck of a lot more talent did it first.

May the odds be ever in your favor...

Because I call first dibs on this.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Oh lord he did rant on Django. How did I know he had to do that? b/c it said a certain term a lot? Or b/c it portrayed black actors in a "negative light"? Even though the main character was black and ended up being the biggest bad ass in the flick. But, of course that wouldn't happen to matter.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I think he ranted how it trivializes slavery/that time period and it did do that. It was pretty much a fantasy world.

Also, you know Spike would have a HUGE problem with Dr. Schultz aiding Django. HE'S WHITE FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

In the end, Spike was telling QT, "You made stuff up because you're white."
