  • Excellent flick, highly recommended (saw it yesterday).



    If you don't know, it's the story of Jesse Owens who won 4 golds in Berlin in the '36 Olympics thus shoving Hitler and the rest of the Nazis' Aryan master race bullshit squarely up their asses. Owens was black and though the Nazis hated Jews the worst, blacks and gypsies weren't far behind.

  • Good story but I personally thought the movie was extremely boring.

  • I haven't seen Race, but from what I've read and seen it looks to be in the same vein as 42, more pandering, generic and safe biopic.

    Which is fine, but if you're making a movie about famous people that we already know, like Jackie Robinson or Jesse Owens...........you gotta come stronger than just a generic portrayal with soft edges.

    I liked both movies. Despite telling well known history, to me they were better than yet another Star Wars, Batman, Superman, etc., etc......sequel. *shrug*

    Sorry, but I'm not that interested in White Guilt: The Movie - Part 58.
