Quote from: Onomatopoeia

The problem I have with Singleton is he makes "black films."  Films that try to make you feel sorry for black people, because of how the white man has oppressed him; films with unrealistic characters who act in unrealistic ways.  And any film that fades in to a Stop sign after reeling off statistics on violence you know is going to be a horrible, pretentious one.


have u even seen boyz in the hood? i think ur missing the point, for the film is less about how the white community has oppressed the black ppl rather about how black ppl are oppressing themselves. it's about this civil war that takes place in the black ghettos. remember, in the movie all the harassment the blacks get from the police is from other black cops. one scene in particular, the white cop is more passive and the black cop is more aggressive towards them. i believe its the scene with larence fishburne after his house gets broken into, i forgot cuz i haven't seen the movie in a while.

and please explain to me how that stop sign fade-in is pretentious, a term that is so loosely thrown around on this board that it has lost all meaning whatsoever. maybe its not subtle, which i'm guessing is why u have a problem with it. who cares about being subtle though, sometimes a lack of subtlety can provide for a more powerful moment.

How do you feel about the "No More Packin'" billboards that are everywhere in Spike's "Clockers"?

There was no Pink Panther ref in this movie!

I don't like the covers for the Peter Sellers Collection.  Here's an example:

this has nothing to do with Covers but it was being discussed earlier.  FUCK SPIKE LEE.  What an egotistical piece of shit.  Granted he does have talne but i lost all respect for him when he sued TNN for changing thier name to Spike TV.  Lee said that they were trying to capitalize on his name.  As if when people hear his name they think of wrestling, Baywatch, and American Gladiators.  He has no ownership to the word SPIKE.

Reefer Madness had a cover that made me expect more.  I wanted to see the insane drug abusers, but instead you see some guy's face in a small square.  So very uneventful.  *sigh*

I agree with just about all of those. There are some really great posters out there that should have been on the video case. But no, I don't understand it. For some reason, they insist on having the potential drained out.

Hell yeah!  Much sexier, much more attention grabbing IMO.

And the PDL cover, even though I love the contents, sucks ASS!

Yeah, I wish they would do some DVD covers for some of the old movies like some of their original posters.  That would be cool (and would look quite nice).
