I haven't seen because they won't bring it out here in Europe.I've seen bits&Pieces, I know the story but as long as I haven't seen it, I can't give my opinion, damn it.

I watched it this weekend and I was torn between liking it and falling asleep. I thought the message was on point but a little abstract, like he was pointing the finger at EVERYBODY but then not digging deep enough to make people actually look at themselves...(maybe that doesn't make sense?). The first 30 minutes I thought I got it and then it got muddled. Anyway I love Mike Rappaport (the 4th beastie) and his role was hilarious ("Im blacker than you", "My wife is black and I have two mixed kids"...constantly trying to prove his lack of prejudice but throwing the undercover shit around left & right. I thought Jada sucked, Mos Def is truly a good actor, Cannibus must not be because he didn't get any lines (sucka). I don't know...maybe I missed something but I didn't think it was effective or entertaining.

I don't think this outdid the emotion
that "do the right thing" had, but,
this movie updated and pinpointed
the same ignorances & misconceptions
we face in society. (at least the amerikan
society)
Rappaport: perfectly articulated the evils
that corporate broadcasting embody, and
did so with his typecast ghetto white boy
persona.
Wayans: fucking brilliant, i really believed
his character along with the identity crises
he exumed, we call these guys uncle toms, but it gave new light as to the mentality
they actually posess.
Mos: i kinda expected this role to be handed
to the mighty, tho i know he can act,
playing himself fit the mood of the picture


theres way more i can say about this but i'm
@ work.

peace, thanks for dropping this post...
i had to say something to somebody about it
ya'll who haven't watched need to see it
with an open mind, spike lee is a prophet
no matter what anyone says

I liked the movie a lot. Thought it was crucial. I think it should be mandatory viewing in public schools, or is that just me, being the rebellious extremest that I tend to be?
