A Revolution Stunted: Little Man

In honor of the Academy Awards, today's video is for one of the worst movies to ever grace theaters. We've dogged on the Wayans before in this series, but we have no problem doing so again. Other movies in the running included Soul Plane, White Chicks, and Big Momma's House, but really, there's no shortage of crap to choose from. And that's the problem. "Black" movies don't have to be bad movies. We had The Color Purple, we had Roots (yeah, it was a mini-series, but whatever). We can have movies as good as The Departed, but we're going to have to stop supporting the worst of the worst first.

  • No mention of Do The Right Thing, or any of Spike's other work? Is a Spike film still a "black film" even if it isn't a mostly black cast? Inside Man was great. So was Son of Sam.

  • i completely blanked on spike lee, but you're right, he makes great films...sometimes. he's definitely a bit hit-or-miss, but you're right, inside man was excellent.

    i'd actually like to move beyond "{insert race} film" designations entirely, but there's still a way to go there.
