Red Hook Summer
Listen I'm not going to tell you I watch a bunch of Black people movies. They just aren't my thing. This film is supposed to be about what happens when The Pastor of the church's grandson comes to spend the summer with him from Atlanta in Red Hook Brooklyn. DON'T WASTE TIME WATCHING THIS FILM. Nothing happens. It's boring. It's 2 hours of absolute meaninglessness. Spike Lee was in an interview and bashed the upcoming Tarantino film Django Unchained. He didn't give a reason why he was so outraged about the film he just said wait and see it. Sooooooo you bash a film that you want us to go and see? Furthermore you make a movie about nothing ( the 1st film he has made in years) and about 3/4 of the way through the movie you find out the Pastor is a pedophile? Ok Spike so you want me to see the movie about the pedophile but be outraged about the movie where a Slave is fighting back against slave masters?
In a sick way though it was interesting to see the approach used to abuse the little boy. The approach that the Bible is right and since I am "a man of God" the things I say and do are right. Shit was just sick man. Do the right thing and don't see this movie.
