Always hard for me to sit through these kind of movies...how is it entertainment???
It's hard to think of any story where the brutality of slavery is involved as "entertaining" yet viewing in the spaghetti western genre will be less disappointing than seeking historical accuracy.
Very educational black American history and my African ancestors.
This is disappointing to have slavery as entertainment. but historical accuracy is what we need
12 Years a Slave.....that should be required viewing in every high school American History class.....it is an excellent movie, though I would not call it entertaining and sometimes hard to watch.
Also, this man has nothing to do with the movie Django loosely or otherwise:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dangerfield_Newby
This is very interesting
I too highly recommend 12 years a Slave as well as the Butler. I had no expectations for a film directed by Quentin T. I went into "inglorious bastards" with that same state of mind and therefore, did not leave disappointed. Finally, if you want to know what it happening in Black History, look around you. Travon Martin Oscar Grant. Read, talk to other, open your eyes and you will never be dependent on Hollywood to tell your story or the stories of others.
Let us read about all history. Never stop learning.
Word up!!!! I love learning because learning about different cultures and periods always teaches me something about myself. Happy New Year to All!!!

Thank you . have a blessed New Years also.... peace be with you

Did not realize this was ture story. Wow how amazing
Must be a terrible burden to have to support everything black just because your black. My sympathies.
Love that movie.
Mark; what knowledge to have about me in terms of what I support that allows you to make such a statement. Not knowing you, I don't want to assume but in general; it must be a terrible burden if not socially limiting to live behind a veil of ignorance. And please don't assume I lament this because you are a white male Mark as ignorance knows no race, ethnicity, gender, or social class. Happy New Year!
Gayle while your words were eloquently chosen I would have opted to ignore Mark's ignorance.
Wow this is very interesting
you are right; Mark and his kind are not worth the energy.
Happy New Year lady! May God bless and keep you.
I like the way Val Lou & Mss Whitlock think..!! May God bless and keep all of you..;)
Same to you Martha. Have a blessed New Year
Thank you Gayle...!!!
I just wonder about united states it takes hollywood to make one or two loosely base american history, to tell the world about the true united states, who run all over the world saving every one else.
There is a documentary on U-Tube "Slavery and the Making of America" produced by Luminary Aurora. Also S.B.A.N. documents slavery AFTER the civil war. Both productions are honest and show how it was slave labor that build this country and enriched European countries. I could not continue watching S.B.A.N. due to the blatant cruelty and injustice. I became emotionally overwhelmed.
Django was not the kind of movie I would go to so I really learned something interesting today I'm glad I clicked on it.Thank you. Poor Mark will just stay the way he sounds and I'm sorry for himt.
you and me both.
The Real Django: This is the actual man on which the movie D’Jango is loosely based. His name is Dangerfield Newby, and he was a member of the John Brown party . He joined to save his wife and children, Harriet.
