It wasn't his best work but I support and of our people doing their thing.
Ironically, The Birth of a Nation pulled in 7 million. It's our people promoting Madea over something historically accurate. Don't bring "The Man" into this.
I didn't even know it came out this weekend. I'm happy for Tyler but side eye to those who saw this but didn't see Birth of a Nation. I support Tyler so I'll see it but that's disappointing.
@10:53 that's a good mindset to have. Donald Trump will get support no matter how bad he makes white people look.
Ni66as love dumb shit & hate upholding our culture & history....Damn our ancestors died in vain/vane. Y'all know what u mean
I lost a date night debate and we saw Jack Reacher. I know why my date didn't want to see Madea (he's a man over 40 and not here for shenanigans) but we walked out of "Reacher" with 45 minutes to go because it was AWFUL.I'll see the movie later this week. Whatever one has to say about his movies' content, he's a self-made man and I respect him. He has REAL business acumen and I'm proud to see that. 10:53 is right; Good for Tyler Perry!
I didn't see Medea because I'm not a fan of Winston Jerome and his over the top movies and shows. However.I did see Birth of a Nation and didn't think it was a great film. Too artisty fartsy for a movie based on an historical event. Just didn't walk away from it feeling anything.
11:20 - I love you for "Winston Jerome!"
NI66AS can't handle the truth!!!! We stay running from things that can empower us & always flocking to meaningless bullshit.Not all but most of us..
Ironically, The Birth of a Nation pulled in 7 million. It's our people promoting Madea over something historically accurate. Don't bring "The Man" into this. 10:55 AMIt's funny. Even Tyler Perry said he's sick of Madea, but he only does the movies because that's what (black) people wanna see. I forget who said this movie would outdo BOAN by a large margin, but he was correct. Black people love/support some foolishness, regardless of if black actors/writers/producers are involved.
@11:33 - Um, I saw "Birth of a Nation" and "Madea" on respective weekends. Black people are not a monolith and just like other races, there are segments that like mindless fun, segments that like historical dramas and documentaries, and segments whom like both (like me.)I think it would be helpful to have an open dialogue and not run people down who enjoy the "Madea" films. There are people who saw the "Jack Reacher" movie rather than "Denial" about Holocaust denial this weekend, and I don't see people on other message boards railing against them and calling them racial epithets. Matter of fact, when was the last time you've heard a Jewish person call another Jewish person a derogatory name? Or a white person call another white person anything derogatory in public? Perhaps railing against other people of color using the term "nigger" or "niggas" re: "handling the truth" is endemic of the same issues you're railing against re: systemic marginalization. It definitely perpetuates it, so maybe find different nomenclature and save your anger for the political system that foments divide among all races by a global elite who wants us squabbling rather than looking at the bigger picture. Peace.
Jews, Italians, Spanish, Russians, Polish, Irish, etc. preserve & uphold their history. They make it a point to teach their children the value of their heritage. And you're right, they don't use derogatory terms toward each other. Hell, up intil the mid eighties is when we started referring to each other's as niggas. our interrupted state of being & years of enslavement has had multiple effects on our current state
That's because Niggas love watching a man run around in a dress all damn day then to watch a man stand up against his damn oppressors SMH. My sister said when she went to see birth of a nation nobody but white folks was up in there and when she went to go see Girl on a train she said nobody but black women and kids were standing in line to go see Madea SMH. Niggas bet not say shit about the white man no damn more.
Say what you want about Tyler but he's pro black!! Unlike Nate Parker!! Last time I checked Nate only want us sistas when our wallets are involved. Never mind the rape issue surrounding Nate. Let's talk about how he was offered 20 million from a BLACK distributor and turned it down for the 17 million he got from white folks. Again, say what you want about Tyler and yes the movies are coonish but he's PRO BLACK behind and in front of the scenes!!!
Niggas bet not say shit about the white man no damn more. 12:36 PM^^^C'mon nah, you know that won't happen. That would entail Black people taking responsibility for their lives, their families and their communities, and Blacks love being professional victims, so 'blaming yt' will continue ad infinitum.
am i supposed to believe the last two comments aint the same dude. i dont watch crossdresser comedies so i havent and wont ever watch his movies. its tired. its buffonry and im not here for it
People have the right to spend their money the way they choose. If you are like me, I go to the movies for entertainment only. Who are we to judge? For the record, I haven't seen either, but again, I go to be entertained, so there's that.
Y'all over analyze things. I just need a good laugh so I'll choose Boo. I'm not kicking the black race in the butt for doing so.
12.02Well said and POW.---------------So Black people are wrong for support a black man because it wasn't the black topic YOU felt they should support. And who's to say it was black people who made this movie #1? And since she's the first to come to mind click on any Kim K story on a white blog and get back to me about how White people talk about other whites. Because you are black you likely only pay attention to what happens around you. But talking smack about people is a human trait not a black one. Stop trying to push those stereo types.
26 million? All you haters talking about Tyler STFU and order your Madea dresses
Muthafuckas laughed at Martin and Eddie Murphy cross dressing so you know niggas will run to watch a Fag throw on a dress and run from clowns in a movie. It's funny and entertaining that it's the best we can come up with. The black man is truly a faggot and black women support it. Congrats are indeed due SMH
People dont get it...medea is family themed and you can take your kids. It will alway win out. Nobody in rheir right mins takes a 8 yr to see the nat turner movie.
@ 11:49 I went to see Tylers' movie and actually it wasn't too many blacks in attendance the audience was mainly hispanics. and yes I did see birth of a nation and i too felt it could have been better...and oh my his wife is white so you can't fault him for not being able to tell a black historical story correctly since he's been white washed.
The New Roots remake was better than BOAN to me. I didn't get emotional while watching it, and the first half of the movie was boring. I'm not a Madea fan so I won't watch that unless it's on Netflix or something. Why get angry about people not wanting to see the movie? That's what books are for. I learned about Nat Turner when I was young. My parents taught as they should have. Further more Nate Parker already got paid by the damn movie studios for the movie.
