    For myself the most resonant movies on a particular topic present believable, complex, relatable characters doing plausible things ... It didn't do that

    Beyond that the movie didn't deliver any insightful commentary in regards to marriage or relationships or on the media

    And the ending felt lazy

    Seriously what really was so great about the movie?

    Go watch a tylper Perry movie or something. Cause you tripping hard

    Tripping how so?

    Just didn't enjoy the movie... Seems as though finch and co didn't know if they wanted to make a thriller, a murder mystery, or a satire

    The drop >>>> gone girl

    And I don't do tyler perry movies bruh

    That's the whole point! It's a film that plays with the audience's minds whilst watching it as evidenced from some posters here. .. ("Wtf did I just watch???")

    Even Fincher himself in an interview I watched recently said what drew him to the script was the bending tones; the unpredictability of the story

    It's just a story with the theme: Everything Is Not What It Seems.. .

    Yea I can say the same for a lot of movies ...they have comedic elements, drama, thrills, twists

    But imho what makes a movie great is when this blending of genres is effortless not to distract the audience... Six Sense is a good example

    I utlimately think it was the source material that is to blame, but I found myself looking at my watch throughout the movie

    And yes the story was unpredictable in a lot of ways and maybe that is why fincher decided to make it into a movie... But for me it wasn't predictable in a good way

    It was implausible situation after another ...the genius Amy who almost got away with murder got bamboozled by a hick couple ... Desi who had been the target of Amy's lies and manipulation in the past was not willing to help her and what did the police make of the days/weeks of video footage of amy willing arriving at desi house, her choosing to remain at the house while Desi went to work instead of trying to escape....the fbi accepted her story though it was full of holes? ...did no one notice that amy had no head wound though she claimed to have been hit in this head and that is why her blood was all over kitchen?

    Wasn't garbage but not the Oscar contender people are hyping it up to be

    Why is this 22 pages?

    Right lol

    And why couldn't she have a big ass party for her 40th bday instead

    But this may be a step in the right direction for her

    Just hear me out ...

    Too many women get married for the wrong reasons ... Primarily because we are conditioned to feel like less a woman or worthless once we reach a certain age and haven't gotten married ... Maybe this is her big "fuck you" to society ... She hasn't found the right man but she isn't goin to lower her standards just to say she has a husband

    A stretch? Lol

    So-called niggas are just disadvantaged black people who have been especially hard hit by racism and discrimination going back generations.

    That's not to say that they never do anything that deepen or sustain their own downtrodden condition. But that behavior is itself the cumulative result of racial oppression.

    So this distinction between 'niggas' and black people is dehumanizing to so-called niggas, and wrongly detaches their shortcomings from the racial oppression that produced them. That is something that white people often do.

    Give us an example of a black person not hit hard by racism and discrimination for generations. This shit makes no sense at all. Like some shit you conjured up to cope and assimilate with white people.

    Nigga letting the word be defined by a pissing contest of who had it worst. What black person had it easy?

    For generations we as black people have all experienced the struggle at one time or another

    While I can say that I can also acknowledge that I've had a blessed life.... My father was always active in my life... I never went hungry...I have always had my mental and physical health ... Always been good at school...Never have had to see my mom get beat on ... Never been sexually abused growing up...Shit a lot of people would love to say

    With that I understand that racism and just life has taken a harder toll on others around me ...people who could use my help

    People some blks like to refer to as "nigga

    Think that's all he was getting at

    He can be a coon at times but I think u just misunderstood what he wa saying

    Our goal should not be raising a race of hyper moral super humans or adopting the divisive tactics of our oppressor

    Our goal should be affording our children the right to live like the normal humans they are, will be through group economics, voting, etc

    All this niggas vs blk people talk just impedes our progress as well as perpetuates white supremacy

    Just do your part click up with like minded individuals, volunteer in ur community, mentor the youth, be politically active, put together a neighborhood watch, learn your rights and past on the knowledge, etc

    and the rest will fall into place

    Slavery only ended only a little over 150 yrs it's gonna take time

    What in the fuck is normal?
    Normal is a relative term. It describes the standards of behavior set by a community of people through a system of rewards and punishments. Normal is socialized behavior.

    For instance, in white homes, it's completely normal for white children to have cursing matches and screaming fits with their parents.

    Is this normal behavior for a Black home? I on't care how thugged out or how much of a bad bitch someone claims to be, they know they not takin that mess home to they momma.

    Morality, law, ethics, was disseminated into the world from the African. People were in the world living lawless, straight reckless. African people set the standard, we were the law, we taught law, code of conduct. We were teaching people that you shouldn't sleep with immediate family members. We were teaching people that murdering someone is wrong. We were teaching people that living in the same quarters as your animals is not healthy.

    Black standards of normality are not the same as everyone else's. However we got these generation of folks who want to be be treated just liek white folks not understanding that less than two generations ago we knew how filthy white folks were, and that they were no standard to be following. Our grandmommas and great grans and aunties who cleaned their houses, or great fathers or unc who drove them around knew their dirt, saw beyond that facade, that public mask.

    The community sets the standard for what normal is. However, Black people have been placed, have been imposed upon, have been forced into an environment where criminality, poverty, and the resulting stressed behaviors and personalities, we refer to as niggas, have become the acceptable norm.

    And aint no goddamn slavery end 150 years ago. We still have slavery today. it is caled the prison industrial complex, and rather than matrilineal slavery, we have penal slavery, which is why the existence of "the nigga" is such an imperative, white folks need that image more than anything, because they can project anything upon it.

    A nigga is a Black person who has accepted the cracca's distortion of him or her, which is why they accept the term nigga in the first place.

    When I said "the right to live as normal human beings" I meant our kids should have the freedom to be individuals and they should have the luxury of making a mistake every once in awhile without it costing he or she their life figuratively or otherwise

    That's what my goal is

    As for the rest of ur post all I will say is that there is no substantive evidence that black people poor or rich are less responsible, less moral, or less upstanding than any other race of people ...

    To counter racism urging blks to become superhuman and to disringuish themselves from the "niggas" is great advice if you are concerned with the sucess of an individual....It is terrible advice if you are truly concerned with why blk college graduates make less than white high school graduates ...or why is it harder for blks to get business loans... or we continue to face discrimination the housing market... Inequalities that have persisted since before the conception of respectability politics and even if all "niggas" were to magically diasppear today will continue to persist
