I watched every second of it with excitement and huge interest. And yes..it was looooonnnng! Almost too long...except! That it is a great saga of human journey. This is the best I've seen in while. I recommend it. In fact, it is money well spent considering how much it costs nowadays to see a good movie. fro


I saw this movie last night and not only is it an excellent film, it is also thought provoking (imo).

And I agree that black folk were portrayed favorably...

considering the era. . .racism is not even addressed. But it works. tfro
fro Exactly Sista Fab. It is thought provoking. And have you thinking about how people are treated based on the external i.e. societal acceptance of appearance. And how we as humans have to TURNED that around if you are to better society in the future. I would say MORE but! I really want people to GO SEE this movie. And have a serious discussion about it later. All in alltfro Brad better get that academy award! It is sooooo deserving. fro
fro Brotha Huey....are you serious? I thought that movie was written poorly. And expected Will to give an outstanding performance. Now, the theme of the movie was excellent but somehow for me Will could not execute it in a way where it was convincing. But! To be fair, I'm gonna watch it again. Cuz if you give it a thumb's up....maybe I missed somethin' Confused fro

It's been a LONG time since I shed a tear at a movie!! I really enjoyed this one and had to actually sit there and compose myself as the credits rolled before I could leave.

Wow. I must check it out then (for sure). I've heard from different people that the storyline is very moving.
