I have seen and encountered families that done exactly what the family has done in Blind Side and these families is also on Section 8 trying to maintain a household with low income and raising a foster child.
Did any of them wind up in the NFL? Because that's the hook, not that good white folks took him in. Why stories like this piss black people off so much, I don't know. If I was in Hollywood, I wouldn't listen to sh*t black people had to say about anything.
And I'm going to kill bluezulu if I ever get my hands on him!
I agree Jenn. Dude was a FIRST ROUND DRAFT CHOICE.... that's the whole point of the movie...he DID DO IT HIMSELF.
As for PRECIOUS, what was the point of this movie?
I mean, there was no message beyond ‘gay people not being bad’ and the really sick light skin and white people are good… I left the theater like wtf…and even the people who talked me into going…and paid for the movie (my wifey and her friends) also had a wtf look on their faces.
Any message you got; you would have to *reach* really hard personally to get one. I thought that was incredibly clumsy on Daniels part. He blew the movie in my opinion.
Second, the whole colorism and color complex that was typical of the pre-1980’s and early 1990’s was fine. What wasn’t fine was the fact that every positive image or person in the film was either white or light skinned, while every negative image had dark skinned people portraying those roles. It seems that Daniel has a lot of self hate. I had no issue with Precious having a color complex, but it seems that the director also has this issue.
Third, I can’t believe that Perry and Oprah would put their name on this stereotypical, self loathing, dark skin people hating garbage.
Also the chicken sceen is confirmed.
Armond White, hater or not has some very vaild points...
and I thought it was a good movie, great acting, but fails becasue there is no message. Nothing positive, and has some twisted self hating images.
