Why are the critics absolutely seething over this movie?
Because it’s supposed to be about a noble African immigrant not a wise-cracking homeless man. I preferred the one with Dave Chappelle and Dustin Hoffman
Because it's 2019, whites and blacks aren't allowed to be friends anymore
so did they just copy that French film?
holy shit is this a rip off of that french movie?
>>108411374>Dave Chappelle and Dustin HoffmanbASEDanon
>>108411445Looks like it lmao, shameless
>>108411439>>108411445We GET IT you watch WatchMojo...
>>108411297because it's ripping off the french movie from some years ago
>>108411530You know, some people just watch movies that aren't in english, retarded amerimutt
This gap basically guarantees a movie is great
>>108411618I wonder how shit it is, which retard thought Kevin Hart was a good casting decision
>>108411755>final casting choice was between Kevin Hart, Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Chris Tucker and Idris Elba
>>108411445English speaking remake of it, so yeah. >>108411755He's not a bad choice given it's trying to be some sort of dramatic comedy.
>>108411697If you weren't dumb you'd know it's a remake not a rip off
>>108411405Holy fucking shit
>>108411297Weinstein produced it. Kevin Hart is in it.Both are persona non grata right now.What the critics don't get: it's based on a huuuge French movie. Immensely popular in the rest of the world. Which means, if they don't fuck the story up it will connect with audiences.Also Cranston is a great actor and if Hart follows the (original) script, he'll get lots of laughs.
>>108412497does it kill americans if they read subtitles?
>>108412467that's like calling something pre-owned instead of used
>>108412488Jesus, those people are so fucked up. The original French movie did effortlessly more for friendship between classes, races, etc than all of Hollywood propaganda together.The reason is simple: it doesn't hammer any political bullshit down your throat.
>>108412488Why did Grace Randolph bring up The Bell Curve, a 25 year old book?
>>108412488I thought you guys were memeing, the fact that only white critics are saying this is fucking baffling.
>>108412497See>>108412488Reviewers don't even seem to know it's a remake and are just lashing out because it's not about a white man apologising to an angry black man for 2 hours
>>108412497They can do whatever they want. The original will still be great, and maybe a few Americans will check it ut after enjoying the remake.Also, Cranston and Kidman are in it. They're both good when they have good material.
I have a question, wasn't the real nurse dude of this story latino/pacific islander?Why did they change him to black?
>>108411297Its just a remake of some other movie
>>108412545Movies with subtitles just typically aren't shown in theaters here.You have to go out of your way to find them, though it's a lot easier with streaming services now and the popularization of subtitled anime. It's still seen as pointless trouble to go through having subtitles as so many shows would get dubbed instead.
>>108412631>Why did Grace Randolph bring up The Bell Curve, a 25 year old book?So everyone knows she read it.
>>108412664>wasn't the real nurse dude of this story latino/pacific islander?He was actually Algerian and the original logic was "Well Algeria is in Africa so we'll hire an African guy"
>>108412497>What the critics don't get: it's based on a huuuge French movieAnd? It still has to stand on its own legs because it's adapted to take place in America. The fact that it's being judged on its own merits instead of talking about it as a remake is a good thing.
>>108412781Imagine if someone decided to play you in a movie and they were not the same race as you.
>>108412488Do these people unironically want a race war? I'm not even saying that in a threatening fashion, I'm saying these professional journalists seem to be a lot more ready to boil over than any 10 randomly selected "DAY OF THE ROPE" posters from /pol/
>>108412545They're just not used to it. Same with dubbing. They have Hollywood which churns out thousands of movies a year, so they never had the need for subtitles or good dubbing. Unlike most of the countries around the world which are dependent from foreign movies (mainly from the US).
>>108412715>implying she'd be lauded for reading wrongthink
>>108411297>Everybody was mocking this when it was first announced, especially the casting >Now people complain it's getting bad reviews /tv/ really can't make up its damn mind.
>>108411445gonna make the English remake of Three Men and a Baby look like Le Cage aux Follesmon dieu
>>108412851I would be ok if it was a BLACKED adaptation of my life.
>>108412488Can't wait to hear how much Armond loves it
>>108412910>English remake of Three Men and a BabyWait, what?
>>108412797There's not much to adapt. The story conencted with audiences worldwide precisely because of its universal themes. Bear in mind this movie was huge even in countries like South Korea.Changing the croissant joke to a donut joke is no merit. This remake was a no-brainer, it was great as it is.
>>108411297maybe it's bad
>>108412904The trailer looked really cheesy
>>108412497>What the critics don't get: it's based on a huuuge French movielmao they're well aware. Critics might write shitty biased reviews but they're not that level of clueless.
>>108412488Do stand alone critics still have followings? meaning that, is there somewhere Donald Clarke fans congregate and ware anxiously waiting for his review on movies.Are Donald Clarke fans waiting to hear that they ain't shit and they don't deserve feel good movies?
>>108412955It was a pretty good feel good flick, plus that redhead was hot af.
Because it's just the exact copy of the french movie but in NY ?
>>108412488>ill timed movieaka we're penalizing the movie because Hart called someone a fag on twitter 10 years ago
>>108412488my god current fucking year is a joke. worst timeline
>>108412971Then they're just malicious and arrogant. The movie doesn't care about politics, it's just about an unusual friendship and it's great. Only asshats would want to tarnish that with ideology.
>>108412851>th...thanks Hollywood producer...Kevin Hart looks just like me.
>>108412488>tfw /pol/ was right all along
uh, the french movie was fun and wholesome. It's the difference between having your colonies on other continents rather than in your own country.
>>108412975I'm from Ireland and he's a pretentious shit bag, he has opinion articles as well and they are just as bad.
>>108412955If you're going to set it America but you still keep the black/white casting, it's going to need changes in the adaptation process in order to work due to cultural contexts. Frame by frame copies almost never work. That's the truth. The Birdcage and Le Cage aux Folles are still quite different movies despite the basic core premise being the same, and that's why the Robin Williams remake works so well.
>>108413136seen french streets lately?
>>108413284I never said anything about that movie. Another anon mentioned it. THIS ONE has a universal theme and doesn't need changes.
Honestly if Hart was the rich dude and Cranston the poor assistant, it would probably make a more interesting remake. Now it's just American redo with usual Hollywood polish, and that's boring.
>>108412488WE NEED A HERO
>>108412488Grace Randolph looks like she fucks Robert Daniels
>>108413451>Hollywood>PolishThey are mostly Jewish
>>108412488Why is everything about race with these people? Why are they also the same people who will brand you a racist for not agreeing with them? Why is the current year so ass backwards? Why is the media more racist in the current year than it was in the 50s?I feel like I got old and I no longer understand society.
>>108412781Should've given the role to Louis CK.
>>108413397The theme doesn't have to be changed, but you do have to rework the story in a way that works in the US setting and cultural context. Especially when you do it as a poor black man helps a rich white man dynamic because culturally that has baggage in America. I used Cage aux Folles as an example because the remake took brave liberties with the material while still maintaining its original message of acceptance (because it's about the now dated social faux pas of having openly gay parents, one of whom is a draq queen while marrying a more conservative family's daughter) and is similarly a remake of a popular french movie.
>>108413587Most people who work in Hollywood are of Polish and Hungarian descent. Look it up.
>>108413687Something something Jews something something White Genocide.
>>108413541kek, Justin Chang is eager to watch that.
>>108412488film criticism is dead, they're all saying exactly the same thing
>>108412488>tfw divide and conquer is real
>>108411297Remember that in the real history was a north african the one helping the wheelchair guy and not a negroid as both movies want to portray.
>>108412594>The original French movie did effortlessly more for friendship between classes, races, etc than all of Hollywood propaganda tDid it? Can you point to any provable positive effect the movie had on society?
>>108413687>More racist nowYes, it's so much more racist to talk about race and representation than denying non-whites roles that aren't servants and where nobody even wants to talk about issues that aren't white.
>>108413715this! Should've have a scene were he gets paralyzed trying to break dance with the boys then grow bitter to the black community for years but when he gets stuck with Keving Hart as his assitant Bryan Cranston discovers there's another side to hip hop he's ignored all this time and he can particitape in:Rapping.
>>108412549you're so fucking stupid holy shit, please go back to plebbit
>>108412488I'm convinced that these types of people have some sort of serious mental illness
>>108413938>He gon' do it! The septuple head spin!>*CRUNCH*>ooh that's gotta hurt!
>>108413715Nice reply. I thought you would sperg out.That cultural baggage is very true, you're right, but, and this is what I don't understand, I would have never seen it through that racial prism in the first place. In fact, I can't understand why some people always see politics in everything around them. Are they too far gone?
>>108412488>the only black guy mentions nothing about race only that it's shitty My nigga.
>>108413889Heartwarming nazi jokes for the whole family.
>>108413938>>108414054>"U alright whiteboy?"

>>108412488>Charles Murray would love thisWhy the fuck would you even think that let alone publish it in a review?
>>108413727Polish and Hungarian Jews
>>108414069Maybe it's because Hollywood has only recently started to have a proper conversation about representation when it comes to casting and what kind of roles people of different color tend to get, and it's culturally relevant. Just because you don't see it from a certsin perspective doesn't mean other wouldn't either. The fact of the matter is that in a certain way just copying the black/white casting feels outdated and even maybe condescending to American audiences due to strained history and rampant economical inequality.
>>108413927Seething resetera faggot taking everything literally
>>108412488What is wrong with these people?
>>108414155That's a reference to the kevin hart fag tweets.
>>108414155You're retarded. >Weinstein >Hart
>>108412488>casting of an able-bodied actor as phillip dubiousseriously, what is this shit. He's a fucking quadriplegic, like how many quadriplegics are hollywood tier actors? It's like saying Day-Lewis in 'My Left Foot' should've been replaced by a guy with real cerebral palsy, like a legit spewing retard, they're fucking actors, let them act.
>>108414430I don't even understand that argument, in most of those movies there are scenes needed to "regulate the retardness" meaning in most the condition gets lower or include flashbacks before they start decaying.How in the fuck would they be able to do these scenes with someone that has a permanent baseline?
>>108412488christ. jokes on them i'm gonna see it and i'm gonna like it. hart and cranston as a pair has kino potential
>>108414201That woman ends up commenting on it doesn't sound like they tried presenting them as peers in the American movie like they did in the French movie and make Hart's character seem like an idiot.
>>108414302Maybe I'm naive, but I prefered the way the French movie handled it, not making a big deal out of it. Sure, it could have gone the Cache route with French guilt being important and whatsoever, but I think the only way to achieve normalization is just focusing on something universal (friendship) instead of reviving ugly history. Let's move forward instead of looking at the past.
>>108412488>How could a white guy be friends with a black guy whitout apologizing for everything his ancestors did??? How unrealistic!! This is your brain on liberal
>>108414430Disabled actors tend to have a very hard time getting roles specifically because they're usually just given roles like this, but more often than not all the big roles with disabilities are given to non-disabled actors. It's part of why BBC actually has quotas for the disabled now. So that they would get proper employment opportunities instead of the scraps.
>>108414577>Let's move forward instead of looking at the past.Lucky for you to say from an innate point of white privilege, fuck you.
>>108414557exactly man, I went to sixth form with some girl who had my left foor tier cerebral palsy and I couldn't understand a word she said for two yearshaving genuine retards in roles where you don't need genuine retards is in itself retarded
>>108414617 should Peter Dinklage have had cranston's role? He's disabled init...
>>108414636Funny, I'm neither white nor did I have any innate privilege. But I do know that hate over things in the past will ruin your soul. And that hate is contagious and nothing good will come out of it.
>>108414577It isn't an issue in the original because they don't have the same kind of racial issues like in America. That's why black servicemen in WW2 for example were treated way better than back at home. Sure you've got issues with their old colonial past but that's also a completely different type of cultural context that isn't directly comparable to Jim Crow, the KKK, the civil rights movement, etc.
>>108414577Ignoring and denying of past sins isn't healthy. It's way more damaging and dangerous.
>>108414636>>108414822I realized the first post couldn't have been you, it would have been some dark Jekyll & Hyde shit otherwise. I understand your position, I'm just unable (or unwilling) to see everything in life defined by racial history.>>108414909>past sins>things that my grandfather or older generations didI'll pass on that, I did nothing wrong, and I can't change the past. I can only act now, why should I lose time and mental health over something some ancestor of mine has possibly done? Doesn't sound very smart to me.
>>108414776That's funny coming from a racist fucking nazi.When the fuck is /pol/ gonna get off my fucking board
>>108415093It's not about being smart or dumb you entitled asshole, it's about justice.
>>108415144Oh, you're trolling. So there's still some hope for you left.
>>108415093Your insecurities speak louder than your feigned nonchalantness and ridiculous "I'm guilt free!" If you do not recognize and learn from history you're doomed to repeat past mistakes because while history doesn't do 100% similar repeats, it does rhyme an awful lot.
>>108414909>past sinsYour twinky nuspeak doesn't work on normal people.

>>108415163What justice?Over things that happened before we were even born? When life in general was way worse than today for EVERYBODY?Are you sure you don't want simple revenge? Like "my ancestors had it bad, now they (whoever you hate) have to pay"?And also>entitled assholePlease, you know nothing about me or my "people's history" for whatever that means. Maybe "we" had it worse but don't complain about it every second of our life.
>>108411530People used to talk about the French version on here. And I remember when someone posted the story that it was being remade, way back before Cranston and Hart were cast.
>>108414313they are jews.
>>108411297>Why are the critics absolutely seething over this movie?Because the Whitey doesn't smile as the nagger kills him to take all his wealth for himself. That's what faggot critics these days unironically want.

>>108414617Disabled people aren't owed acting jobs, and most people who pursue the field will not get a single role worth a damn. If they want to go for it despite being what most people would consider a basic requirement (being able to walk around a stage and recite lines), best of luck, but everyone else ultimately just wants movies to be the best they can be. Does England have quotas for how many quadriplegic waiters restaurants need to hire?
>>108412488Lol /pol/ wuz rite
>>108415902Because it's clichéd and trite. The original felt unique and somewhat different with how it treated the material.
