Re: King Kong, The Movie

Ms_secondhalf ·
I thought this movie was beyond silly... and I'm sorry, but I don't see the 'emasculated black man' thing. I understand the concept but I'm not sure I buy into it. We have to deal with far more overt manifestations of racism than those found in a movie. It's just a movie, folks.... Be that as it may, on with my review: The actors were fine -- I'm a fan of both Naomi Watts and Jack Black. But the film was wayyy over the top. The scene with the giant insects was totally unnecessary; the scenes...

I know I'm probably preaching to the choir here, but Clinton got those applause because he deserved them. The only thing Bush deserves is a swift kick in the teeth, and no body knows that better than African-Americans. He should have done what he did with the NAACP in 2004 and just declined the invitation. Or, we could have learned our lesson and not invited him at all. I don't think Ms. King would have missed him.

Jack and Jill has little to do with elitism within African America. As I see it, it is about trying to maintain cultural integrity within largely white suburban communities. The families come from the ranks of the professional and college educated. To the degree that that is elitist, it is. But the purpsose is to instill pride and establish links among African American children where they might not always exist. I grew up in a white suburb of Boston in the highly racist 1970's.
