    Though it could be argued that this movie could have better by an X thinking Spike Lee. That argument wouldn't hold much water. This is the movie that sisters should make a girl date to go see.

    Correct, resulting in this ... not that we care about Hollywood's appetite :facepalm:



    Why ‘Detroit’ Flopping At The Box Office, Signals A Dent In Hollywood’s Appetite For Black Movies of Shame

    The numbers are in and unfortunately despite best laid plans and the projection for a more than decent opening at the box office — Kathryn Bigelow’s much-hyped and picked apart movie about the Detroit riots of 1967 — aptly titled Detroit — barely registered with theater goers across the country ...

    I have always said, if we don't support our stories, no one will tell them
