There were a few notable movies, but it was not a history-making year for African-Americans.

is to create even a greater divide. If you have 100 purple people, and 20 green people, more purple people will . . .

That was the only sentence this piece needed. His movies are horrendous.

Thank you for writing and publishing this piece! Rarely does the Star Tribune address race and representation in Hollywood--except for in Bao Phi's blog.

a writer for "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" ...and they would know a thing or two about being mediocre!

...wasn't about the white lady saving the poor black kid...actually it was...but it was more than that. It's about a person who ignored the color of someone's skin. She saw and met the needs of another human being which allowed him to reach his potential. That is a great message for this country to hear and receive. If you miss that, you completely miss the point. That fact that it's based on a true story makes it more compelling. That makes it the best movie of the year in my mind.

Who is this Salhuddin guy? I haven't seen Invictus yet (I will soon), but Mandela's story has more of my attention than the aliens. Perhaps if the ghetto dwelling aliens would make themeselves known...Maybe he knows something I don't. Maybe the problem with the hood is there are too many aliens living in it. Being from the hood, I actually need an uplifting message. There are enough indicators as to how bad things are. Maybe if we all worked together, we COULD win a game or end hunger or fix the economy or who knows what else.

...is laughing all the way to the bank, at the bank, and leaving the bank. That's how horrendous his movies are.
