cant sugar coat the fact that the word was and still is used today. Bunch of soft fu*ks in here. Now people laughing when the word was said during the movie is a different thing.

100% of the white population experiences episodes of euphoria whenever they hear the n word. It appeals to the racist pleasure centers that exist naturally within the hot dog water junkyard rat soup eating caucasoid brain. QT is a demagogue who needs to be stopped, or at least decried and ultimately have his profile raised.

I still don't get why people say "fu*k spike lee" because he didn't want to see the movie... what's wrong with that?

He literally just said "I'm not going to see the movie because I find it disrespectful" that's it. he didn't bash tarantino or anything. I think people are mad because he "didn't watch the film" but the dude READ THE SCRIPT!

I feel like people are too quick to "burn the witch" and sh*t

I did. And, it doesn't do anything for me. I don't question Spike Lee as an artist, or a thinker. I don't need five paragraphs to tell me stuff I already know. No one is doubting his place in cinema, or how important of a creative voice he is to our culture. In that sense, I don't owe Spike Lee sh*t, let alone an apology.

I don't think the writer's response is a strong one that negates any of the inherent flaws that exists in Spike Lee's argument. Nor does it convince me that it is anything other than a knee-jerk reaction to a period of history being depicted in a different fashion than Spike would like it to be depicted. That's on him, and I won't argue with that feeling, or question its validity.

And, my comprehension skills are just fine, thank you...
apparently not

literal sense or not , it's a stupid way to "word" his argument about Spike Lee's argument

and No, Spike Lee doesn't have the right to voice something without getting attacked

Spike Lee has attacked other people in the past numerous times. Does this mean Spike Lee can criticize someone else's work but not get criticized back ??

everyone has the right to an opinion and everyone has the right to respond/criticize/and attack back at someone else's opinion.

I never suggested that it was about the quote. Read my previous post a little more carefully before you a.ssume things.

The part that I think is inherently flawed is not him refusing to see the movie. It's about the fact that he, an artist known for button pushing films, is telling a fellow filmmaker what he should and shouldn't do with his film. He says slavery should not be depicted in the style of a Spaghetti Western. My question is, why? Why can't it?

u said tha writer didnt address flaws in spikes argument did u not?what he is sayin is that spike didnt make an argument.his statement was very simple.he isnt intrested in seein a slave movie thats made in that style

he didnt tell anybody what they should or shouldnt do,he just said he isnt interested in that type of film.tha answer to tha question why is deep.i had a white person tell me tha movie was hilarious.imo,hilarity isnt tha 1st word that should come out your mouth when we are supposed to have a realistic portrayal of slavery

No, I said the writer does nothing to change what I think about Spike's a.ssessment of the film. The writer can call it whatever he likes. But, it is an argument in that it creates an avenue for discussion. Period. Really, call it what it is.

Hilarity isn't the first word. But, then again, who EVER said this was a realistic portrayal of slavery? Oh wait, NO ONE DID. Yes, it's funny in parts. But, yes... it's also horrifying and sobering as well. The film has an undercurrent of sadness. It isn't nearly the happy-go-lucky film you seem to think it is. But, what the film actually does is use the style of the Spaghetti Western (which isn't nearly as silly as Spike makes it seem like it is) to actually highlight cruelty of the era in a way more memorable, more vital, and more urgent than any other filmed depiction of slavery (save for ROOTS).

Again, I'm not gonna argue about Spike's not seeing the movie, and feeling like it's disrespectful. That's a personal feeling I can understand. But, what I will not do is regard it as anything more than that just because it's Spike Lee.

But, like I said in a previous thread...

Anyway, you may return to beating this dead horse.

That is so fu*king stupid.

So nobody make a movie about anything unless it's 100% historically accurate (which is impossible to prove).

Not like Django trivialized anything in the first place.

Yea you'll just make comments about it like how it "trivializes" people without even seeing it.

Also known as retarded to anyone w common sense.
