I got the original Shaft (1971) in my top 10.

The first one with SLJ was decent and didn't do a disservice to the original.

I will wait to hold my judgement on this one. But, the "Shaft" character was alway a representation of pure masculinity and the newest member of the family looking kind of weak. I am sure he grows into the character through the movie. But, none of the others had to. They were already "the man."

If the film can make me believe he is the new "Shaft" by the end of the movie, they did a good job. I just don't know why they would introduce that struggle 5 movies (and a TV series) deep into a franchise.

Exactly why I have no interest in watching it. I didn't like that Survivor's Remorse show either mostly because of him. He just doesn't come off convincingly in these roles that require masculine personas.

RogerEbert.com, the website of the deceased famed film critic Roger Ebert, gave it a 0.5/4. That's quite possibly the lowest score I've ever seen that site give a movie.

For those of who you don't know, Roger Ebert was married to a black woman when he was living, and he often reviewed black films favorably when most mainstream critics didn't.

Sometimes, racism isn't the reason for low review scores. Sometimes a movie just flat out sucks. If you peep Sam Jackson's most recent Breakfast Club interview, he didn't sound all that enthused for the movie either. He probably just took on the project to have something to do.

Regardless of racism's ever-existent presence in our lives, we still should strive for a certain standard. One thing I will always praise older generations for is that they had standards, and adhered to them, despite experiencing way more racism than any of us can ever claim to have experienced.

Lower the excuses, and raise the standards.

Are you white?

What are your top 10 Black movies/ movies where the majority of the star roles are played by Black actors?
No, I’m not. I’m Cuban.

And I’ve never once had to come up with a top 10 list of black movies

But this dude told me before that I must not like sh*tty movies like Belly, which I enjoyed as a kid but is still a terrible movie, because I don’t understand them. That was the point of my post. It’s clearly his go to if you say any black movie he likes isn’t good. Sorry, but that’s some bullsh*t.

@ here’s some context for you too since you slapped

Many “Black” films are trash.

Still not taking back my slap for your post.

That wasn’t my goal

For the record, I haven’t seen the new Shaft, so it had nothing to do with that movie in particular. I just thought it was funny because that seems to be dudes go to if you disagree with him about any black movie and you’re not black.

Yup. That part. If they keep the same energy they had from the 2001 Shaft with the hate crime/ corrupt system and street alligators like Peoples etc. We good. Hood classics always get replay these Mayo jars can't relate.

The movie was ok I guess had a few funny moments but nothing like the Shaft from 2000 with peoples in it ...

They show this scene in the new shaft try to make it seem like it was in 2012 lol foh I was there when they was filming shaft back in late 1999 they shot those scenes in Uptown Manhattan by Dyckman Street on my old hood Ellwood , Samuel L Jackson fu*ked up his ankle chasing that mother fu*ker lol

Movie was decent. Good enough to keep my attention throughout the whole thing without me checking my phone so I'll give it that. The son is the weak link in the clique but they didn't go make Samuel a big softy cuz he's got a kid so that was good. Better than fu*king X-Men that's for sure lol

Hope it's at least better than last year's Superfly. That movie was a huge letdown.

He hand-picked the reviewers on his site before his death, outlining his criteria for reviewing movies so that the reviews from the site would remain consistent after his death.

So while it isn't Roger Ebert himself reviewing films, the critics' opinions and scoring criteria are inline with what Ebert would have given any particular film.

Otherwise, why keep the website up?
