It could really use a second adaptation of the stage show (NOT a remake of the film) with a younger Dorothy and a reconceptualized vision of what a black Oz looks like that isn't inherently stereotypical.

But the star power - and for 8 year old me the star was Nipsey Russel - was out of this world.

Ease on down the road is great - Slide Some Oil to Me - not so much

I think MJ is great- but I'm not a huge fan of Diana in this.

To recap: The film producers got my money - so they win!

All right not really, but that movie is a personal classic.

Nas and T-Boz were the weakest links of that film, but it's still a beautiful looking movie with memorable characters and scenes

In response to Reply # 6


  

          

the plot was iffy and not that well executed. but the music-video style direction was cool and the charisma of some of the actors saved the overall cheesiness of the movie. to me it was decent.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

School Daze is a good movie.

I spent half of that shit explaining black culture to them, but they were thoroughly engrossed in the storyline.

It's a good movie.

It works because of the location and that it isn't formulaic.


sort of a day in the life type thing. A viewer can sort of chill with it as opposed to getting caught up in a formulaic plot.


but it has weaknesses.

In response to Reply # 16


  

          

Just the fact that there were ZERO white folks in that movie about a Friday on the block in the hood had me geeked. So many of the jokes were on some subtle hood shit.

Like "What are you doing with that on your head? Don't get homeboy fucked-up"

lol.

And when Deebo told Smokey to "roll the dice," lmao. He was just making those dudes play dice with him, even tho they lost no matter what.

He has been eating off Boyz for a long time. The funny thing is that the first line in his obit will be these corny ass Fast N the Furious movies. He only took that line over because the original director abandoned it, too.

In response to Reply # 42


  

          

I remember falling asleep every time Roots came on, and we had to watch it in class, and I just thought that acting was horrible.


Lean on me had lots of quotes that are funny to repeat but as far as the quality of the movie itself? The movie was not meant to be a comedy, but I just found everything to be funny because everybody was over acting and shit was just not realistic.

You really took him to roof Mr. Clark? Okay... I know it's based on a real teacher but the acting is what made it not so good to me.

I'm Gonna Git You Sucka was funny, it was dated but that is the nature of that style of parody. It led to other funny films, too. It was good not great.

Lean On Me you also have to see in context, I think it would be kinda corny if it were released today but for its era, it's good.

Roots, I mean how does it suck? It could have been even better but overall it accomplished what it set out to do, which was ambitious.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

How in the WORLD can you say these three movies sucked?!!!!!

I'm Gonna Get You Sucka was funny as hell!!!!! It had so many funny moments. And, it was totally spoofing blaxploitation. It was great!

I was about 7-8 when Lean on Me came out. My PARENTS TOOK ME TO THE MOVIES to see that ish!!!! It was an important film especially in the black community about fighting for education. It didn't suck!

Roots?!!! Now you are just trollin!

to judge older movies which isn't quite fair. Alot of exploitation movies were bad and the good ones are hard to judge by modern standards, but they are still a BFD giving context.

In response to Reply # 45


  

          

The Butler is less awful than just mediocre/lackluster

Haven't seen Beasts yet

Precious is polarizing and troublesome, but it's not awful. I think the film's themes and points get lost in the Lee Daniels sensationalism of it all in places, or at least overwhelming to audiences not used to those explicit sorts of indie films.

In response to Reply # 67


  

          

If a modern child sees The Last Dragon, they aren't at all as likely to develop a "nostalgic" attachment to it.

It's a terrible film, although I've become convinced at this point that it wasn't meant to be anything greater.

There are so many lighthearted comedies, musicals, etc. that I both enjoy and think are some good.

I can sit through The Last Dragon and be entertained by it, but let's be real: the acting is awful, the writing is worse, and the art direction and design were dated in the worst ways possible within weeks of the film's original release.

In response to Reply # 272


  

          

I don't dislike The Last Dragon. I just accept that it's a bad movie.

If my blackness has to be intrinsically tied to lying about The Last Dragon _not_ being a bad movie, I'll stage a coop and excommunicate those who disagree. I'll be Black, and the rest of you can pick a new classification.

271. "It's a D."
In response to Reply # 265


  

          

I'm not sure about you, but when I evaluate a film, I ask myself these questions:

1. Does the film succeed in telling a good story ("good" as in well structured, clear unless intentionally obfuscated, has a beginning, middle, end, and clear plot threads through each part?)
1a. Are the characters successfully drawn?
1b. Are the situations plausible?
1c. Does the plot flow from point to point logically and with some sense of ease?

2. Does the director's work in staging the film and the choices in acting, pacing, etc. enhance the film, hamper the film, or keep it at a median level of quality?

3. What is the quality of the acting?

4. What is the quality of the visuals: cinematography, production design, art direction, hair/makeup, costuming and, if applicable, the special effects?

5. What is the quality of the music or score, if present?

6. What is the quality of the sound mixing and sound design?

7. Do all of these disparate elements work as a whole to present a cohesive picture?

Here's Purple Rain:
1. No. The story is all over the place, and the high variance of the plot in earlier drafts bears witness to the fact that this movie was less about telling a story with Prince as the lead than it was about just promoting Prince.
1a. No. See above. Prince's clique is generally cast to play heightened versions of themselves, but this ends up resulting in either throwaway characterizations (Wendy and Lisa) or inconsistent characterizations (Morris Day).
1b. Uh, generally.
1c. Not quite. Film meanders all up and around the plot, which is essentially an A-story of boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-wins-girl back and a B-story that's a modernized variation on the mortgage on the farm/let's put on a show plot (see also, "Can't Stop the Music", which is sort of like "Purple Rain" for the Village People, but even worse)

2. The director is really there to make Prince look cool, everything else be damned to hell. He succeeds at that task, but the rest of the film suffers from inattention and a lack of focus that makes it feel long, long, long.

3. Oh, come now.

4. Visuals are decent, save for some awful location night-shots.

5. Oh, come now, but for the opposite reason: one of the best song scores ever.

6. No complaints about sound quality

7. Hell naw, they don't!

In response to Reply # 256


  

          

thread.

The same sentiment still stands for The Last Dragon, though maybe the score could be raised to a D+ (it does manage to have a beginning, middle, and end, even if they're corny out the frame without quite enough plausibility developed to support said corniness).

And both are CERTAINLY better than Xanadu.

In response to Reply # 54


  

          

At least from my interpretation.

Cult classics are either....

1) Commercial flops that found a loyal audience after the fact

of

2) Commercial and Critical flops that found an audience who enjoys it on an ironic level.

264. "I'm not sure how old you are, but when Soul Food came out in 1997"
In response to Reply # 114


  

          

there really was no movie like it. It was sort of like Crooklyn, sort of like Waiting to Exhale, but by and large it was its own thing. As such, there's little stereotyping and predicability going on; as someone said before, it created most of the tropes one could accuse it of.

Also, if a film is going for melodrama and does it right, that should not be considered a negative, Soul Food is absolutely a melodrama, but that's what it's going for. Hell, Imitation of Life is a melodrama too, but that's what IT'S going for.

Yeah. Though I haven't seen it since I was a kid. And, I didn't know how racist it was until I got older.

In response to Reply # 212


  

          

Disney put the film on permanent moratorium and refuses to reissue it, to the ire of angry racist fanboys nationwide.

There are bootlegs strewn about (a store in Marietta, GA sells them and advertises such on their marquee outside!), but it's never been officially released on video in the US. In Europe and Asia, different story. Hence where the bootlegs come from.

give it to Ava Duvernay or Guillermo del Toro to remake as a magic realist horror/thriller, and I'd peep it again.

As it stands, tho, it was the best a studio could do with that book

108. "Purple Rain is a horrible film."
In response to Reply # 102


  

          

It fails spectacularly at the number one thing a decent film should do, which is tell a story.

The characters are mere suggestions, the acting is awful, and the production design/technicals are all over the place except for the sound mix.

It also violates the number-one rule of the music-based film or movie musical: having musical numbers that both don't advance the plot and go on far too long. The key offender is the title song, of which all nine minutes are performed onscreen. All nine.

There's a nine-minute song in "hairspray" too, but it takes the film from climax to resolution and had multiple breaks of dialogue scenes to boot.

In response to Reply # 126


  

          

First, Purple Rain is not really a musical. People sing to each other or the audience in musicals. There aren't even that many rock musicals, but Dreamgirls and certainly Hairspray are far and away better films.

I've heard great things about Tommy, but I've never seen it, Shit, even Head, as bizarre and tripped out as it is, succeeds where Purple Rain doesn't as far as having a core theme and a core plot, and even a consistant tone of lunacy.

303. "all three of those movies had a budget tho, right?"
In response to Reply # 247


          

Purple Rain was like $983 to make, and $400 of that was haircare products.

The lead was a black guy who *still* don't like to talk in public, rocking French revolution gear in the 80s.

That movie should be unwatchable, and its far from it.

Nah.

Nah.

314. "Which would make it a $16 million film in 2015"
In response to Reply # 304


  

          

which is EXACTLY the budget a musician's vanity (heh) film would be made for today too.

A lot of what's wrong with PR are things that aren't going to drive the budget sky-high, like competent writing.

I understand the film means a lot personally/emotionally to people who were young/old enough to appreciate it in 1984, when Prince was at the height of his powers. But, like _most_ pop/rock star vanity vehicles, that doesn't make it a good film by default.

That whole category has been a mixed bag ever since the 1950s - there's probably a baby boomer board someplace where people of a certain age are trying to defend "Jailhouse Rock" the same way.

I looked at my watch like six times during that performance. Purple Rain is a power ballad; it's not like Prince was doing anything gripping on screen during that number the way he does during many of the others.

Outside of OKP and circles of black folks that worship anything Prince does just because it's Prince, the general consensus on Purple Rain is that it's a bad movie. It's more concerned with selling that soundtrack than it is telling a story.

There's no way that The Color Purple can be considered a bad film or drama and for some people to say that Roots is awful, my word. What in the hell is going on.

Tyler Perry in it....

You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.
