WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE HOPE TO DO
We are men and women tired of wasting our time and money by watching and supporting those highly rated 2-hour pieces of crap. We hope the existence of our site causes the creation of more websites that assist African-Americans in spending their entertainment dollar more wisely.
WE ARE AFRICAN-AMERICANS THAT LOVE MOVIES
There’s a severe shortage of African-American movie reviewers in this country according to recent polls (and common sense). We are tired of the reviews that say how great a film is just because it’s in another language, or how “accurately” a movie tells a made-up story that’s based on a book. And don’t forget about movies that have a mainly Black cast – how do those “other” reviewers know what people of color want or like. Well, we are here to change all that. So unless it’s a documentary based on facts, we just want to be entertained. And if you want it to be like the book, you have three choices. 1) Make the movie yourself, 2) rewrite the book, so it matches the film or 3) read the book, close your eyes and envision what you read.
WE ARE NOT WRITERS, DIRECTORS, PRODUCERS, ETC.
Another reason to trust our reviews is because of what we are not. We are not Hollywood. We don’t care about how good the costume design is or if whatever the characters have was available in the time they’re trying to represent. It just needs to be believable and entertaining.
WE GIVE HONEST REAL REVIEWS FROM A REGULAR MOVIE GOERS PERSPECTIVE
Since we don’t work for a movie company, we can tell you exactly what we think of any title we review. That also means we can listen to your requests and comments and explain or re-explain any one of our reviews you don’t understand or don’t agree with. So please know that these reviews are our opinions, but if you can prove we were wrong or too harsh in our review, we will retract and rewrite it, apologize for the review and give the member that told us how wrong we were full credit for putting us in our place.
