    Looks like a good movie, but as a member of a black Greek organization hate that all of this is getting out. Guess it's native to think it wouldn't eventually. Just hope they don't focus solely on the negative aspects.

    I went through a tough process but I came through with a lot of pride in my perseverance and in my fraternity.

    I'm sure there will be comments against pledging and I've already heard it all. Discussion still welcomed.

    Cool movie, but I'm pretty sure how the anti-Greek IC population will react to this. Even still, I give it 7.5/10

    I feel it's the only way. I don't feel a need to play the whole part in the entire movement. But, yo, if you just raise your family right, if I just live righteously, I be all right. Yo, my whole life is dedicated to change.

    It was alright. I was just reading reviews and only one of three drew a parallel between the Willie Lynch letter and the hazing of pledges. I felt like that was the underlying theme of the film.

    It is. In the scene where the pledges are being paddled, Zurich's voice over is reading excerpts from the letter.

    Just watched. Hate they took it as far as they did. Maybe they pointing out how it used to be underground, but all that kicking niggas in the ribs, spitting in they face and shit, total disregard for their health, etc. ain't how it goes down now, at least not in my chapter.

    Some of the shit was spot on though.

    Shit gets deep, but not on the brink of death.

    their cruelty must be manifested in other aspects of their lives

    Movie was just one long asswhoopin. Then it just went off. No resolution, plenty of loose ends.

    Z showed potential near the end...he got on his shit and was showing potential with the kings and queens talk, got his report in finally, and halfway through the movie the teacher told him he was a natural leader. I was hoping he would step up and say "fuck this shit...this isn't how you should treat on young King" or something like that, but the moment never came.

    7/10

    I liked the movie. I felt it showed an interesting side of things. I've never pledged, but I considered pledging before the fraternity I was thinking about got cancelled for hazing. I feel like it showed how far hazing can go, and how even old heads ( the dean ) can be fine with it based off tradition, culture, etc.


    I felt like the movie kept building up to a climax, then ended at the climax. Not only did it end open ended, but it skipped the whole POST CLIMAX step of a movie. Hell, it really didn't even finish the climax.

    - Is homeboy dead?
    - Is the fraternity going to be cancelled?
    - Is he gonna get his girl back?
    - What did he tell his pops?
    - Who is his pops?
    - Has the dean always been aware of the deaths?
    - Are they still joining the fraternity?

    ultimately, I personally couldn't have seen myself taking an asswhoopin like that. Even in the beginning when they kicked homeboy with the dreads out.

    Homeboy was still taking hits after being told he wasn't going to make it...I would have whooped his ass.

    Additionally this was pretty much a representation of pledging Que...and I still don't understand the branding shit. You now about to brand me
