Eddie Murphy’s Classic Film Boomerang (1992)
 

 
In 1992 Eddie Murphy’s classic film Boomerang was released. A writer from the Los Angeles Times criticized the film’s majority black cast as “a reverse world in which white people are invisible” because the black characters were professionals & not engaging in violent stereotypes.


This is one of my favorite movies of all time because of how black people were portrayed.

Everyone in the movie was educated, professional and successful and making money.

The movie is funny and the soundtrack is great

It’s crazy how the 90s black movies are remembered about violent hood classics. The 00s are more for the couples and normal black people. Then the late 00s into the 10s with Tyler Perry Meida sh*t

Good sh*t op. Imagine if the LA times addressed all of the films that don't have black folks... like today in 2022. sh*t still happens. Boom was a classic and we could use some of that energy nowadays. The current class of black creatives sucks a*s. I know it's more to it than that with who's in these meetings but man we are also not bringing it. You can't deny greatness but you can turn down all this mid-sh*t getting pitched.



It stinks so good!
The movie was fu*king crazy and edgy. Movies now are too safe and unfunny.

What's the reason why we can't have good movies like Boomerang or other 90s classics?

Believe it or not but I've never seen any of Tyler Perry's movies and I never will.

I give him 100% props for everything he's achieved and accomplished with his life but I can't and I won't sit through a buffoonery or trash type of movie and I'm done watching slavery or trauma type of movies.

I have zero interest in watching Will Smith's new movie Emancipation.

White people are sick in the head.

This is from an article from Jet Magazine in November 1990 here's Mortimer Adler who was an American philosopher, educator, encyclopedist, and popular author and the director of the Encyclopćdia Britannica disrespecting black people so arrogantly.













This is how white people in academia feel about black people but Mortimer Adler spoke his racism out loud and knew he could get away with it.

There is zero interest or belief in blacks supporting cinema. They look at us as extra. So, they have no incentive to further our culture or feed our artistic needs. Just a steady diet of bull sh*t to come.

You're speaking facts. The Jews are no friends to black people.

They don't want black people to be equal with them either.

They'll never support black people in America getting reparations.

Wesley Snipes had to wear a dress and dress up in drag to get the lead role for Blade.

Eddie Murphy put a lot of actors on. And to think about how hard Bill Cosby went on him.

And Eddie to this day has never kicked Cosby while he was down.

They know damn well blacks support cinema. Look at black panther,sh*t broke records. Kendrick and Cole always do great numbers when they drop.

They know we want substance. But they're in the business of oppression. So we get bullsh*t, then get told we get bullsh*t because we want bullsh*t.

I truly appreciate the history lesson. I want to dive into this as soon as I have the time to focus on instead of skimming this. I am going to double back with a thoughtful reply worthy of your effort.

Eddie Murphy has character. He also put Wesley Snipes in Coming to America 2.

White people heavily criticized the movie and called it unrealistic.










Next time do some investigating and research.

Can we be honest that the love story itself was convoluted? The movie has some pretty bad pacing problems that make it tough to watch beyond just favorite parts and funny moments. Feels like it should have ended like 2 or 3 times before it actually does.

That person's opinion was his stance, and I was not aware of that. So, it was news to me. Cheers.
