I think this movie would have been better as a Broadway play. Every time I was starting to get invested in the story, they started singing. Took me right out of it. I wish I knew it was a musical before I watched it.

Taraj damn near blackballed herself, sh1tting on the movie before it even came out, mix that with the fact that it was written by a hardcore feminist who hates black men (like most of um) it was doomed to fail

It's a catch 22 because we don't want to support the works of an anti black male weirdo feminist but also Hollywood says if we don't show up and support a film they'll never throw that type of money at anything black again
A catch 22? Nobody needs to support this type of film. It does nothing for the community and a reboot wasn't needed at all. But like the tweet was saying, they need bullsh1t like this to exist on film for obvious reasons.

Black folks - African Americans specifically - in general, really like to support blatantly dumb sh1t. Like really put in the effort to smh.. The fact we have to play nice or else they won't "throw that type of money at anything black again" is pathetic.

"African Americans in general like to support blatantly dumb sh1t " but this movie flopped so what is the message you're trying to convey?

Nobody wants to see this type of bullsh1t anymore when we got things like the Creed trilogy, Black Panther, Spiderverse, Little Mermaid, Jordan Peele movies, etc.

This!

I’m ready to see more open-minded films and love the era that Jordan Peele and other black directors following in those footsteps are doing. For example, I LOVED Lovecraft Country because it was a step in a direction for black media that wasn’t afraid to be DIFFERENT. And of course, it got canceled.

Although I fully agree with this I think it's also a nice little "gotcha bi#ch" magic trick...

He's the truth... a niche product only produces results within a niche market.

Hollywood knows that if they make a retro, all black film and they dump a lot of money behind it they know it's a loss from the get go not because it's black but because it's niche and targeted to a niche audience. So when it actually DOES fail they'll say "you see, sh1t fail, now we got a legitimate business excuse to not make black movies anymore and ya can't say sh1t" lol
You really think that a publicly traded company beholden to shareholders put $100 million into producing a film with the intent of it to fail just so they do not have to make films aimed at black audiences? Not throwing shade genuinely trying to see your ideology behind this.

black trauma p0rn movies should be boycotted

enough of this sh1t

I wanna see $100 mill for a nat turner film, and I want a scene of him smashing and crushing white babies, which he did ..

Hollywood obsessed with slavery, let's be obsessed then. talk about everything
That movie already exists, “Birth of a nation”-Nate Parker’s version. Only reason it did not do well was because the white chick Nate and his screenwriting partner r@ped in college committed suicide. Press for the film nosedived upon release!

Because you just said that African Americans like to support dumb sh1t but the dumb sh1t just flipped so again what are you referring to?

Are you telling yourself that by African Americans supporting dumb sh1t, the dumb sh1t is supposed to always be a success?
Tf?!?
Nothing I said had anything to do with the sh1t flopping or not. Just the ppl that choose to support the bullsh1t that does nothing for them and keeping the sh1t going. It's really not that difficult to understand..

Bruh, just say your African American a$s was offended by what was said and you wanna argue for argument sake smh..




I got no time for that bullsh1t btw..
