Spike Lee Should Have Quit While He Was Ahead!, 15 February 2016
1/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This was one of the worst Spike Lee movies ever! Spike Lee really haven't made a good movie since Get On The Bus! I am mad Angela Bassett and Jennifer Hudson wasted their great acting on this horrible movie! Nick Cannon haven't been good in a movie in years! And Samuel L. Jackson was pointless. How dare he used that "Wake Up!" line? That line should have been reserved exclusively for School Daze only! And the line continuously repeated by women in this movie, "No peace, no pussy." was one of the stupidest lines in any of Spike Lee's movies. I really got lost watching this movie. I wonder how resident and citizens of Chicago feel about this movie.

After 65 Years, Charlie Brown Comes Out A Winner!, 22 November 2015
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Charlie Brown has been trying to get the Little Red Headed Girl my entire life. All of the characters appeared in this movie. They all behaved like they did in the comic strips and cartoons since 1965. I don't think Shermy appeared in Peanuts in decades. But he returned for this movie. Snoopy and Woodstock were still creative. All of Charlie Brown's "friends" should be ashamed of themselves for being so mean to him all of these years. The Little Red Headed Girl saw him as a kind hearted and good friend, while the other Peanuts laughed at him. Even Lucy cried at the end and realized that she has been a jerk to Charlie Brown for so long.

This Movie Shows A Part Of James Brown's Life, 3 August 2014
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This movie goes back and forwards about times in James Brown's life. We now know how James Brown became the famous entertainer that he was until he died. His mother left him as a child. Then his father gave him to an aunt to live. He was charged as an adult for stealing when he was still a child. James Brown demanded respect and expected all his musicians to put forth 100% at all times. There were many great actresses in this movie. It had Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis, Tika Sumpter, and Jill Scott! There is no mention about James Brown's life after 1988! He did many things after then. He married two more women and had another child.

This Movie Is Not Biblical At All!, 29 March 2014
1/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Christians know the story of Noah building the ark, all the animals going on the ark two by two, it raining for 40 days and 40 nights, and the entire world flooding. Noah's sons and their wives were the only people who believed him and went on the ark. Everyone else was destroyed by flood. Well, this movie does NOT portray the Noah story like that! Noah is portrayed as one of the meanest people in the bible! He lets an innocent woman die in the flood. He talks ugly to his son and wife. He wanted to kill two innocent newborn baby girls right after they were born! Also, Methuselum had no role in the bible, other than being the oldest man who ever lived. They gave him a significant role in this movie. Plus, rock men attacking Noah and others. A mean man getting on the ark. This movie should not have been named "Noah!" This movie was a waste of my money, even though I received free tickets to see it!

Another Tyler Perry Madea Comedy With Morals, 28 December 2013
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Once again Madea does many crazy mean things in this movie, such as steal from the job that she was fired from and hang a small child to a cross in the classroom for stealing. Anna Maria Horsford has been type-casted as a silly, whiny, obnoxious woman in every thing that she plays in! Tika Sumpter plays a teacher in a very small school. Larry The Cable Guy plays the redneck father. This movie mixes comedy with serious messages. Interracial marriage. Corruption. Keeping family secrets. An abusive father. Bullying. How can a teacher get fired in a school just because a parent says so without going before the school board? And who signs a contract without reading it?

Another Movie Where Samuel L. Jackson Plays A Good Guy., 23 August 2012
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Samuel L. Jackson plays teacher Trevor Garfield in a rough NYC high school. He was a dedicated teacher who felt threatened by a student. Why didn't the principal do something? He gets stabbed several times by the student after leaving the apathetic principal's office! Fifteen months later, he ends up in LA. The sub line called him to sub in one of the most rundown, worst high schools in LA. Subs do not make a lot of money! The average person would have walked out of that school and never returned. But Mr. Garfield stayed for a while until another apathetic principal fired him! Why did Mr. Garfield cry in front of the principal? Embarrassing! And why did he let a female student come into his house anyway? She ended up naked on his sofa! It is obvious that the administration let the students walk all over the teachers in that school. Caesar and Bennie should have been expelled and sent to a detention home! And the history teacher who had a gun in his desk should have been fired on the spot and have his teacher's license revoked! There was one thing that was never proved in the movie. Did Mr. Garfield kill Bennie and cut off Caesar's finger?

This Was Another Creative Movie With Serious Sub Plots!, 26 May 2012
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Queen Latifah proved once again that not only can she act, but she can sing too! Lauren "KeKe" Palmer played the average rebellious teenager in this movie. Why did they make Queen Latifah's son have autism in this movie? That was just one of the serious plots! I got tired of hearing Dolly Parton's annoying voice in this movie! Kirk Frankin and his choir were showboating in this movie. I like the choir with the children singing and the little boy was singing his solo in soprano and speaking in tongues. Courtney B. Vance broke out of his serious monotone acting during part of this movie. We all knew that Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton's showoff choir was going to win the competition.

This Movie Deals With Everything Controversial!, 14 April 2012
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This movie deals with each and every controversial topic you could think of during that time period. Abuse. Teenage pregnancy. Lesbianism. Rape. Ciel had an abortion. The husband that she had was hateful. Then the baby she already had suddenly died. Oprah's character was beat horribly by Paul Winfield's character until mother Mary Alice tried to shoot him. Then Oprah's son got sent to jail. There was a lady who had a house full of children with no father. The lesbian woman almost beat an innocent old man to death for no reason. There were many other controversial topics in this movie, but there were too many to list here.

This Is The Most Creative Movie That Cameron Diaz Has Ever Starred In!, 21 January 2012
10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Cameron Diaz, plays a stuck up, gold digging, manipulative 7th grade English teacher in this movie. She lets the students watch movies every day in class until she finds out that the teachers receive a bonus for having the highest test scores. Then she starts to teach. She humiliates 7th grade students who get questions wrong and then hits them with dodge balls. Then she cheats to win the bonus. Then she gets promoted to guidance counselor. Unfortunately, Cameron Diaz's character reminds me of many teachers in Virginia schools. They don't really teach. They get away with so much. They cheat so their students can have the highest test scores. And they never get in trouble with the principal, despite their horrible teaching. Teachers who are dedicated like Mrs. Squirrel in the movie never get any respect. This movie was creative and a slight exaggeration of what really goes on daily in public schools in Virginia.
