I seldom review movies and I never review movies, which are directed or star friends of mine. I’m of the opinion that professional critics are asshole-failed directors, writers or actors.
When it comes to anything artistic I’m in the ‘I like what I like’ category. This from a guy who has written curriculums for art schools and has some fairly impressive ‘arts’ degrees.
Education aside, I simply like what I like and think that people should like what they like and not be swayed by any ‘critics’ opinion. One of my favorite movies is a film called the Big Bus. I saw this more than 20 years ago (when I was 2) and I remember I CRIED like a little bitch because I was laughing so hard. MAN, to me that was the funniest movie ever.
Another movie I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants was Dirty Work. Neither The Big Bus nor Dirty Work had any chance of winning an Oscar. In fact I think there’s a law that makes it a crime to even mention Oscar in the same sentence as either of those movies.
It should be clear from those two examples that I like what like. If that does not drive the point home this will, my favorite movie of ALL TIME is My Best Friends Wedding.
I’m a 6 foot 2 -200 plus pound straight Black man from the hood and My Best Friends Wedding is my all time favorite movie.
The Bicycle Thief?
My Left Foot?
Duh, I told you I was straight.
Close but no.
To me the greatest movie ever made is My Best Friends Wedding.
If that does not say to you, I like what I like then you are as dense as the GOP thinking that they will get the Latino vote after casting NO votes for the very first Latino appointee to the Supreme Court.
I’m a friend of Michael Jai White who stars in and is the driving force behind Black Dynamite, which opens nationwide today.
As I stated earlier, I never review movies that feature friends of mine but this movie is SO outstanding and funny I broke my own rule and glad I did so.
As I’ve said, I like what I like and I liked, no I LOVED this movie.
This is the funniest movie I’ve seen in my adult life. I laughed so hard I nearly spit coke (the DRINK) all over the people in front of me. This movie is so freakin funny that even white people laughed at stuff they would never admit they think is funny about Black people. Yes, there was white people there it was the Hollywood premiere and there was free food and drinks at the after party…duh.
I heard a white guy say after the movie that he thought the movie was ‘good’ but could have been ‘great.’ It’s my sincere belief that if he had asked a Black person to explain some of what he clearly did not understand he would grant the movie the ‘great’ tag.
I’m not kidding when I say this, if you are white and have Black friends go with them to see this movie. Oh, if you are a member of the GOP don’t ask Michael Steele, his ass will be more stumped than you. The VAST majority of this movie is funny to everyone-but there are some instances where being black makes the joke even funnier.
To paraphrase the great poet J.J. Evans, ‘Go see this movie it’s (wait for it, wait for it)…
