I remember seeing the trailer for this and knowing that this was definitely something I wanted to see. The cast is amazing and the characters are extraordinary. It's good to see that not all of the characters are exactly as their first impression gives. We have a little bit of everything here. It's satirical and has some laugh out loud moments. It's a refreshing way to look at a serious subject. O... read more

A good movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but the title was pretty catchy and since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check out the damned thing. First of all, one thing I liked about this flick was how it depicted the life on a college campus. Indeed, you always get to hear in American movies that to go to college is just so damned amazing but I had always my doub... read more

A satire about being a black face in a very white place. DEAR WHITE PEOPLE follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular 'African American' themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in 'post-racial' America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world.

A good movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but the title was pretty catchy and since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check out the damned thing. First of all, one thing I liked about this flick was how it depicted the life on a college campus. Indeed, you always get to hear in American movies that to go to college is just so damned amazing but I had always my doubts (personally, I went to college was myself in Europe and even though I didn’t hate it, it didn’t turn out to be anything really mindblowing). Well, this movie finally displayed that college is actually not much better than high-school after all which was a pretty good start. It was also dealing with an interesting subject, on how a supposedly educated environment as an Ivy league university ” read more

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: Jan & Feb (28 movies items)

"February 11 "Do you seriously think you can win?" "Troy, we live in a world where there's a Big Momma's House *3*. I don't think I have a chance in hell." Oddly enough, the controversy of the Netflix teaser for the series based on this film is what got me to check it out. For a movie that had a lot going for it, I was kind of underwhelmed as I didn't like it as much as I probably should've. Its biggest strength is the characters. Pretty much every character has their share of flaws and no on"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2015 (23 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 48min. First Viewing Its a smart, funny and searing dissection of race itself. The script is superb, with so many wonderful touches, and the cast routinely excellent, especially Tessa Thompson in a genuine breakout role. "
