Agreed. Or they could've been like oh yeah our last game started a woman of color let's do that again.
And the problem with hood movies is the families are dealing with hood shit. Someone gets shot, drugs, police, a funeral etc... With Us, even though it's a horror film, the family is doing normal family shit. Going on vacation, putting kids to bed, brother and sister arguing, dad making dad jokes. A normal Black family portrayal. Even with shows like Black-ish, the show is a comedy with a message, so the family can't be "normal" and is exaggerated in order to get messages/topics across. This isn't a complaint about Black-ish/I watch the show regularly along with Grown-ish, but Us stands out from everything else because of how normal/real the Black family portrayal is and, like you said, it is damn near impossible to think of anything else like that. Like if anyone else but Jordan Peele had done this film, you know the father would have been cheating/abusive or the son would have been skipping school...some silly ass subplot to get in the way of the genuine family moments.
Craig does have some genuine moments with his family that I appreciate when he's not a the Creek (Craig and his dad playing video games, Craig and his sister going with their mom to the salon).
Hi. And welcome back.
I'm so sorry for you loss.
*in Ron Perlman's voice* OT.... OT never changes.
I saw Little. It was really funny and enjoyable. I guess people wouldn't feel it for it's very Black focused humor.
Yeah, it seems any thread having to do with Ilhan Omar is especially bad with drawing out the assholery from the "progressives" here. All of us PoC are apparently expected to sit there and take shit from white liberals silently.
Man, I deal with a shitton of shitty people on the daily. To come here and have to deal with it too, where everyone thinks their shit don’t stink, but 10x worse cause of anonymity? I just laugh it off, most people on here aren’t the characters the portray.
