SJW bullshit tumblr drama bait. No thanks.
I hope this movie stays true to the view the preview is showing and not some more white guilt shit. It could be good.

" I wonder if you are destined to be forgotten. Will your life fade in the shadow of greater beings?"
That will make a lot of money, and it will not be a good movie.
Just look at those tropes. They may try to avoid the worst of the slant, and probably will try to do that for oscar bait, and they might even say a thing or two that is maybe worth seeing. But you can already see the conclusion in the visual representations.
You don't really need to watch this movie to see how the heroine will come to accept some gradient of the implied message of "cultural tolerance" and recognize the appropriations that "both cultures" make with each other. You can literally see that in the artistic style of the trailer.
I actually expect that will be a very well produced movie. But it WILL be a movie that tries to play to every interest and avoid making a direct statement, allowing whichever audience that sees it to feel the movie supports their pre-existing beliefs. And, again, I expect that it will make a lot of money. It does look like a higher class of race baiting. But ultimately I don't expect it to do anything more than bait.

is college kids sitting around talking about how white people and black people do things differently even a thing anymore/ever? this movie feels like it should have come out 20 years ago and would have still been a lame idea.
To be honest I had no idea what was going on in that trailer. And do I have to care about this movie? It looked like a lot of schmock.
I got a little bit of an edgier "different world" vibe from it until the Comically Oblivious White Dean showed up... and honestly... I think we were supposed to take that seriously.
I like how many times they had to enforce the word "satire" in that trailer.
Looks shitty. gr8 white b8 m8.
Seems more like it will make fun of racists and SJW at the same time? Could be entertaining.
i watched that trailer and im still not sure what the premise is. black girl doing the announcements at a university starts trashing white people then when she gets yelled down tries to prove what she is saying is true?
I think it'll slant more obviously to the sympathetic SJW -- because ultimately that's who's gonna be buying the tickets. I would not expect Oscar Wilde, here. Easy targets dressed up in a pseduo-50's veneer... so that we can feel "safe". That's all it's gonna be. It'll surprise me a lot if it's anything more.
Thank god it's not the Trayvon story. It -could- be so much worse... and if this is the one that "they" have decided to go with, at least its not so horrible.
I like the Allstate guy, and it's good to see that while everyone still might hate him, Chris got a movie gig.
ACL (angry college liberal) does a radio show airing racial grievances and doing the SJW schtick... Black Dean like the whitebread black guy and wants him to run for student body president in order to foster race relations... SWJ heroin gets into the race because... well, I mean, what the fuck else is she gonna do? Older blacks wrestle with younger blacks over nature of racism, younger blacks wrestle with younger whites, Older whites kindly and politely tells older blacks to shut the fuck up. And in the zany middle of it all our idealistic mulatto girl.
C'mon chuk. It's a really easy one to follow!

I feel like I should be jumping on this "scam SJWs out of their money" bandwagon somehow. I mean, Anita Sarkeesian scammed these idiots out of how many tens of thousands of dollars? Seems like an opportunity that's too good to pass up.
There needs to be a movie called, "Dear Negros".
Can you imagine?
Oh wait, trailer answers that. The American MultiMedia Conglomerate Corporation already broadcasts that 24/7.
I would not expect much.
This thread is making me miss Dwayne Wayne and the beautiful Miss Whitney
All I know is that the definition of "racism" in that trailer epitomizes the current culture. It's the English language equivalent of congressional redistricting. Essentially subverting the original term, and carefully sculpting it to perpetuate the current ideology long after the old definition became not applicable to most people (Especially college age, middle class, black young adults). I'm sure if any of these kids saw an honest, legitimate racist--from a good old boy state, they would shit their pants. (And it's sad, because it's obvious racism still exists, but these dumb asses have stretched the term so much that it's almost become laughable. If I were a Lumi level conspiracy nut, I'd almost say the extreme right was behind the SJW trend, just to poison the well for the larger populace). But the biggest irony of all, is that believing that only whites can be racist, you're assigning them a trait that your own race is "above"--and that is actually textbook racism.
Anyway, maybe the movie will surprise me and address some of the above. But I have a feeling it's going to be mostly dumb white people, and dumb black people, shouting nonsense until two enlightened individuals fall in love and show that said dumbness can be overcome--without actually addressing the why of it; just cause feels. Racial version of the Notebook.

All this movie says to me is: "We're first year college students, and know far, far more than anyone else who isn't a first year college student. Now listen as we explain how the world really works to the rest of you (racist) rubes."
With the added bonus that if you disagree with how anything is depicted in the movie, you must be racist.
holy shit. It looked like a comedy to me. Some of you feeling white guilt lately for no reason?
Actually the start of the trailer is all this girls one sided bs opinions, but then actually there's a bit of a turn half way through where it looks like she gets it thrown right back at her. I think I'm cautiously optimistic that this movie is smarter than the cover it propped itself up with.

What I didn't see anywhere in that trailer was a reason to watch the movie. Racist, not racist, funny, witty, poignant, whatever you might say it could contain...it didn't look even slightly interesting in the least. I typically want to see a movie to enjoy myself, whether it be shit blowing up, shit making me laugh, or just a damn good story, I want to enjoy what I'm watching (or at least see titties). What was there to enjoy here for the normal person (of any race)?
and its not like black people will be lining up to watch that shit, who do you think watches spike lee movies? guilty white people. black people want to see fun movies where shit gets blown up and there is some crass humor with some ghetto slang thrown in. basically, Bad Boys. maybe 20 years ago you could still find a niche market of squishy weiners to go fund this thing, but in this day and age. nobody gives a fuck. you can barely still get people to go see classic summer films anymore. the box office is at an all time low this year.
I would guess that has more to do with how much it cost to go to the movies these days. Sure the price is correct when adjusted for inflation but our incomes haven't gone up relative to inflation so the price is much higher then it should be.
They've strung out Transformers and Xmen just about as far as they'll go. That's all summer box office means.
I would expect a gradual shift. Probably to "80's style" action movies. They've already been testing the waters with robocop2 and terminator 15 and crap. You're gonna have Joe America beating on biker gangs.
It can't be minority drug gangs anymore. It'll either be white biker gangs or it will be terrorists. And even then it might take throttling netflix to save their summer blockbuster industry.
I'd watch "Son of Cobra, Kobra-Khan goes to Turdmekistan". Cobra doesn't get enough respect. That was one of Stallones best movies.

Looks funny. Something to fuel jokes with my black friends. I have more than two, so I'm ahead of the curve.
Well if mulattos count, I think I'm OK.
What kind of idiot buys weed from monicas?
Its the 21st century bro, medical weed if youre not lucky enough to live in Colorado or Washington. The day of the cool hip pot dealer who grows in his basement is a thing of the past.
Movie looks void of humor and intelligent discussion of racism. Racial version of the Notebook indeed.
Dear Black People.
Stop giving your kids terrible names.
i used to have a huge crush on lisa bonet growing up, i fapped to her titties in that movie with mickey rourke a lot
chick looks exactly like lisa bonet
I fapped to Lisa Bonet too. I guess I'm not racist either.
I've never had any black friends. I also don't drink, and haven't done any drugs in a long time. I wonder if there's a connection there.
yeah, i shucked the old corn cob over that scene too.
Lisa Bonet is hot. Doesn't count though. She's not black so much as she's High Yellow.
Black dudes will TELL you that doesn't count. You want the fist bump you gotta go darker than that.
Looks pretty funny. You guys are so defensive. Relax
In other news, I'm watching "I Love You, Man" right now, and I forgot how fucking atrocious it is. Yes, their are amusing scenes, and I like the friendship aspect of the movie. But god damn does Paul Rudd say countless douchey things. It's embarrassing.
