Let's speak on movies for a bit...

Now I don't like to take things out of hip-hop too much when I'm posting on this blog but I think that's there is an important topic to discuss, and that is the new movie Red Tails which will be in theaters as of January 20th. Now I know a lot of people are going to say (especially younger) I don't want to see that shit just because it's got black people in it, it looks boring, I don't car about WW 2 and etc. I understand that, but I will say this, you're young, you don't know any better. At some point in the future, you will want to see different images portrayed on the screen and not just the same old things. You will want to see this, not just because you want to see it, but because it opens an important avenue of alternate visions of our people in the future.

Many people have some things to say on it, not the least of which is George Lucas, the producer who understands how the industry works and is a veteran, yet he spoke on the difficulty of getting this movie made. Here is the editorial one of my faithful readers wrote about the matter just recently.

Look, this is one of those issues that crosses the barriers of age, sex, or anything else because it matters to our entire community to do our best to see this movie and support a vision that is different from the norm.
