Fell the f*ck out and wondered was if Tyler Perry's world (movie and TV projects) have a cult vibe.

Answers my questions as why he never gets a rough-looking dude like Bokeem Woodbine, who can act his ass off and wouldn't cost as much as Will, Sam or Denzel - as a romantic lead. Idris Elba is dark (Daddy's Little Girls, which was wack btw) but I don't consider him a regular looking dude. JMO

Sane said...

It was only a matter of time.....Tyler has a very obvious eye for casting handsome leading men that would make anybody raise an eyebrow.

On another note, I'm shocked that Aaron McGruder hasn't capped on the whole Chris Brown/Rihanna situation yet.

LMAO. Too funny! I bet Tyler Perry studios carry a "cult" vibe, seeing as that the SAME actors are in the SAME movies over and over again.

That was funny, and probably true.

I'm glad that Aaron put those stupid "Pause"/"No Homo" phrases on blast too. If that ain't the gayest sh*t ever uttered by a "thug." And then you got these pathetic (R)atchet & (B)lasphemous (Thanks Fresh!) dudes jumping on the "No Homo" bandwagon b/c they don't want nobody to believe that they are pilfering booty pirates. I mean if you are that insecure about your sexuality, keep your homoerotic comments to yourself.

Exactly. Food for thought for the masses as always.Mcgruder realizes the truth is the light.

For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad Mark 4:22

Don't think so. But Cube is on the same channel and follows House of Payne. Don't forget he, Cube, has his own production company and has been making movies for quite a while.

Anonymous said...

Um...a lot of directors work with the same actors/actresses on different projects. Johnny Depp/Tim Burton etc...

As for picking attractive leading men, why wouldn't he. That's the business. Who doesn't? Handsome sells.

Anonymous said...

Y'all kill me! @12:45 B!tch please..
That chitlin circuit you speak of has put hundreds of black actors and actresses to work and therefore, has fed and clothed hundreds more little black kids. Please respect the game. Tyler Perry's movies are generic but hell, they are entertaining and I appreciate the fact that he keeps all his money in-house and for the most part, all black. He has his own production company and studios, none of that money has to see Hollywood.
House of Pain did have to grow on me, but I can't stomach that coon sh*t Meet the Browns (WTF) but I digress..
Keep doing your thing Tyler and I don't care if you're a closeted homosexual or not. Keep putting those fine a$$ men in leading roles.

I wondered that as well. Regina King and John Witherspoon have worked a lot with Cube and neither (that I've noticed) have worked with Tyler and they both do a lot of "black" movies. Maybe they know something that we don't know. I wouldn't be surprised if there was some sort of bad blood between Tyler and Cube now that he's on TBS also.

Thank you bottom line is who is putting money in the black community. McDummy is NOT!. Talking ish for the YT does not do anything but divide us. You got to be a real warped Ninja to not respect the Chitlin ciruit and its history. I guess African American is the new European's. All that hatred in your heart for this nonsense...I don't get the purpose of putting down someone just cause, or "I hate the black on the back on my neck" cheesebread eating field ninjas..just hating everything black, but your are BLACK!. Until they make a pill and you can look like YT..but more than likely you will hate that too. GTFOH... Sad..Sad..Sad..state of affairs in some of these households..

That episode was genius. The insights were on point and very well-written (the Rocky Horror reference was brilliant). Best ep of the season for me.

Didn't they also go in on MJ calling him a skin bleaching, child raping, Uncle Tom sell-out? smdh

I only liked the first 2 seasons of Boondocks but this was funny. Otherwise, they doin too much & it aint as hilarious as it use to be IMO.

Anonymous said...

Tyler movies are the same plot and characters switched around & rearranged. Not too mention they are corny as hell and highly feminized. Like Tyler thinks he's a woman and always portraying men as sinister and evil. The only reason he gets good actors is because he pays them well. Otherwise, his movies would be straight to DVD.

Anonymous said...

LOL@ black throwing shade at Aaron McGruder. It's called "satire" people. AM is basically holding up a giant mirror up to the face of Black America and exaggerating the fuckery that takes place on a daily basis in out culture to illustrate his point. Yes, it's funny, but it's also geared to make you think "damn, this really goes on in my neighborhood/race? What can I do to stop it?" Y'all don't get the fact that he overempasizes the words "No Homo," "Nigga," or "Bitches & Hoes"?

But I bet most of y'all love The Simpsons and Family Guy right? But noooo, fuck this coon shit, we got the Cleavland Show -- oh wait, that's written, produced, and created by a WHITE guy. SMDH...

PS - Just because Pyler Terry puts 10's of Black people to work, doesn't mean any of his "movies" are historical works of art.

Did 'TP (Tyler Perry)' steal your Grammar book? How about you learn how to fucking SPELL before you come online acting like a 'TP Vigilante.'

...And yes, the episode was HILARIOUS and ridiculously on point in ALL areas! The 'Madea Play' parody at the beginning alone made this episode. I don't even have to talk about any and everything else that went on.

And to whoever said 'The Fundraiser' was better--You CAN'T be serious. Both eps were hilarious, but c'mon...

@ 4:25p

Some of the older brothers like Samuel L. and Larry Fishburne have never really looked good but they have a helluva lot of personality, which makes them attractive in most eyes. I know of many YTs that will spend $12-15 on any movie they're in (throw Jeffrey Wright in that class. too) and if you say Shemar Moore, they'll be like "Oh, the guy on the soap opera. Is Henry related to Kimora?"

Best Boondocks episode so far this season. Boondocks is the best television show on t.v. Too bad this is the last season.

I thought "Smokin wit cigarwettes" was hilarious, but this one had me ROLLIN'! I love Boondocks, Aaron is crazy and creative and I love the controversy and I AM a Tyler Perry fan yes I think TP as Madea is funny as all get out. I support my people! I don't care what you do just do something and be good at it and they both are....I still want to know who the rapper is that was outed in the Gangstalicious saga LOL...Damn I love Boondocks!

Sane said...

LMAOOO @ FranShawn bringing up that Gangstalicious episode *falls out on the floor like a star fish*

I think for me the only episode that went the farthest in left field this season and that has yet to get a hearty belly laugh outta me was the ep with Uncle Ruckus and the racist country singer. Other than that, I definitely enjoy Aaron's creative skills.

Rainbow said...

LOL! I.LOVE.THIS!

I know for a FACT that Tyletta Perry came on to a fairly famous Brotha on set while filming one of his movies. I support Tyletta getting his hustle on and he works hard (and is very successful), but he's not even in the closet about his "leanings" no matter how much he protest about it.

And yes, House of Payne is cooneriffic. So are half of his corny movies with those gay weddings at the end. I know Black folks gotta eat in Hollywood but I'm sure they wouldn't take those parts if they didn't have to.

Anyway, in general I'm just tired of the whole Closeted-Gay/DL scene in the Black Church and Black Christian Community, period. Jesus is not going to "cure" anyone of being gay and why should he? I realize homosexuality is a sin according to Christianity. But despite coming from a legacy of preachers and growing up in the Black Church, I'm not a Christian anymore so I can debate whether that's the Creator's truth (Jesus is still cool with me, though. and I think He would agree with my point).

Tyletta Perry, Kirk Franklin, Donnie Mcclurkin, etc....Just stop it. Stop using Jesus and the Bible to hide who you really are, because it ain't working. And I'm sure Jesus doesn't appreciate you all living a double life in His name.

We need to do better.

I don't think that Jesus appreciates ANYONE who commits ANY sin living a "double" life in his name. Even if it's hetero.

The black church kills me with this sh*t as well. Y'all know good and well that most of the "men" in ANY church choir are gay. And some of the ministers get down like that as well..
Damn shame people can't just come on out and be who they are..especially in the church.

Yea Larry wasn't that bad looking back then. Especially in Deep Cover and the gangster movie he did. He kind of let himself go. He's a bit portly now which makes his mouth stand out even more.

I don't have a problem with making light of the church, because it is perfectly alright with me for people to find humor in and laugh at themselves, but I always found Tyler in DRAG to be rather disturbing. There is nothing entertaining about that [to me] at all. I really hate to see the chit'lin circuit church crowd carry on and get all slap happy over that twisted mess.

What I saw and heard in Christian churches was bad enough, but the Catholic church really takes the cake. I am so outdone and turned off by organized religion, which to me is such a joke and a sham.

LOL, maybe it's a matter of opinion. See, I go back to when he was a teen on Righteous Apples (or one of those PBS teen shows from the early 80s) with Cindy from EnVogue, he looked OK then.

He def looked better than the real Ike Turner, I'll give him that (What's Love Got to Do With It).

Why, why, WHY does someone have to be a "hater" (I detest that term) just because they don't like something?!!! Not liking Tyler Perry plays/movies NOR liking The Boondocks makes anyone jealous (I refuse to use the other word). Black folks are not a monolith--we have varying opinions and likes and dislikes. Laughing and commenting on a gossip blog about an animated show is not going to tear down our community. Lighten up people, geeze!

You got to be a real warped Ninja to not respect the Chitlin ciruit and its history. I guess African American is the new European's.

Paul Mooney must've been on to something when he said white is the new black.Is it any wonder that the term African American is the new European has been brought up in a post. When both colonization/slavery and the chitlin circut(which proceeded slavery) promoted stereotypes/stigmas. Thus, it
dehuminzed the black race and emasculated the black man who carries the dominent gene of Black race. The shackles from slavery need to be removed menatally before progress. Otherwise, its two steps forward 1 step back.Those who do not know history or acknowledge thier history will repeat it.

CNS said...

I don't understand why people think that his movies are degrading to black people. From what I have hear many prestigious black/actors actresses are line up to be apart of his projects. I look forward to seeing his movies, mostly because he can address serious issues without featuring gratuitous sex, violence and nudity. He has worked with the likes for Blair Underwood, Alfre Woodward, Lynn Whitefield , Kathy Bates, Tarjii Henson, Cicely Tyson,Angela Bassett, Saana Latham, Robin Givens.All of these mentioned have been powerhouse actors in their field. Someone mentioned that these actors only work with him because he pays the well. When is being paid well for what you do a negative in any field of work or profession. As far as him recycling his plays into movies and to make millions of dollars, he did not invent the format.Hollywood had always take a book or play and adapted into a movie. I personal see him as a marketing genius, unfortunately if he were a white male doing the same thing he would be considered a marketing genius. Just a FYI, out of all of his work I really do hate Meet the Browns. Now that show is horrid....CNS

1. There's a dominant gene of the Black race?
2. It's located on the Y chromosome?

Arlen said...

No one is saying he isn't successful, but there are more older black women played by middle-aged black MEN in drag than there are played by black actresses who are actually that age. You can't say the same of white folks. What does that say?

CAMISHA said...

i know i'm late, but, 1:43, i have a degree in film production and film studies and i have also worked on tp's set and i'd say it was 40% white crew. tv production 60%. tp is getting rich off black people who don't have a thirst for something more. our predecessors (sp?) on the chitlin circuit did that shit so we don't have to. because of them, we have melvin van peebles, spike lee, john singleton, etc. tp is just recycling shit. anyone who is in the industry or even knows how to write knows that tp's work is filmically fundamentally flawed. it's poor and shows his lack of knowledge of the art. we as a community should work with each other to grow. has tp tried to grow within his body of work? no. people think him just throwing some white people in the mix shows growth... same shitty story and soap opera dialogue coming out of white lips.
it's so depressing to see black people not ask of more when it comes to entertainment and to see their pride when the puppet master is getting rich off the garbage that he lays out for you. you've been had and don't even know it... beware of the wolf in sheep's clothing.

Rainbow, you sound like an idiot (i.e. "I'm not a Christian anymore so I can debate this.") Being a Christian or not being a Christian does not qualify anyone when debating a topic. And, no one is going to throw a parade for your simply because you are no longer a Christian. Get over yourself.

The average brain-washed television watcher - and definitely your average TYLER PERRY FAN, is not going to understand what this episode is truly saying...

In fact, I think this episode was for TRUE CHRISTIANS before anyone else.

I don't consider myself a JESUS FREAK, but I am definitely spiritual and Jesus is my Lord and Savior. When I watched this for the 1st time, it struck a "spiritual" cord with me.

I looked at how dude was USING JESUS as a "producing partner", just as the dialogue stated...and how freakin' DECEPTIVE AND EVIL that is!!!

The GAY part.... clearly dude is gay. Everyone in HOLLYWOOD knows dude is gay. So that was a given. No need to dwell on it. And if you have traditional Christian beliefs, As McGruder seems to have, you think that's wrong anyway.... NEXT!

The bible says "what's done in the dark shall come to the light". Maybe this is the start of God exposing HYPOCRITES AND LIARS for who and what they truly are. God doesn't want His people deceived, and if you ask me, TP's rise to the top was a "little fast"..... wonder what favors he had to cash in to get Hollywood to finally notice him. A BOYFRIEND IN THE INDUSTRY PERHAPS? (at least at that time - probably not needed anymore.)

Straight up - to me - this episode may as well have been a SERMON!

NO HOMO.
