    he said "i did it with pride and dignity" exactly how denzel would say it

    I am not saying that these movies should have a comedic appeal, obviously because of the subject matter, but damn! This movie is riveting in so many ways. It's relevant but still a true story; it juxtaposes the past and present situations of blacks in the U.S. at a certain place and time, and it's comedic as hell, which creates a nice balance to allow for marvelous storytelling with a healthy splash of entertainment.
    If you have not seen BlacKkKlansman yet, I highly recommend it! Washington is incredible.

    I hated the movie Glory. /puke
    He doesn't look much like his father, though there is definitely similarities in the way they sound. But I think it's safe to say this one took after the mother.
    Kimmel is smug and irritating as always.

  • Graphics FX

    This movie is classic Hollywood brainwashing intended to portray non democratic whites as racist in typical Spike Lee fashion. And if there is any doubt left in the viewer's mind there is the ending that reinforces Trump supporters as racist. Disgusting. By all means read the book but avoid this movie at all costs. It is effective in changing the true story and transforming it into something that pushes the Holly-Wood liberal agenda.. And if there is any doubt left in your mind, find out WHY Hollywood was created. Ever wonder how Hollywood is still left standing after so many years of bombing at the box office? Who keeps propping them up? Yes.... whites in this county's HISTORY did some incredibly racist things. It is something that the nation ALMOST crawled out of and defeated. And THAT is something that does NOT fit the democrat liberal agenda that relies on liberal supporters continuing to believe that we are divided along racist lines. And we have Obama to thank for pushing us back into the race wars that are being ignited across the country. This movie and its director are evil incarnate. And of course having Jimmie Kimmel promoting this garbage is a marriage made in hell.
