  3. Thank you for saying the same thing I have been saying...sort of..you added depth. LiLi
  4. Hi Troy..first of all..this is probably not going to be a movie all men will be able to watch for several reasons. The stories in the movie were written by a woman as you and most men know. I say most because there are men who have no clue who Ntozake Shange is and her work. That she wrote this on the 70's but that these issues are still with us in 2010. With that said, SOME men will understand that the characters are not a reflection on the majority of men but we can not bury our heads in the sand and say there are NO men who act out in the ways the men on the screen do. In my own life I have know everyone of those men. So, I would say to a man who is willing to go see the movie and judge it on the "entertainment" value alone that it is a good movie based on the acting perhaps not the subject matter. Is it dark, yep. Is it fun, no. But if the man is willing to understand the above I stated, it makes for a great discussion of SOME issues men and women do have.
  5. I LOVED the movie, will see it again and cant wait for it to come out on DVD.
  6. Thump or anyone..did you read Some Sing Some Cry by Ntozake Shange & Ifa Bayeza..yet..? I just finished it and thought it was great. LiLi

  9. Some of the books are in fact more memorable than others. Are you trying to imply that I cant read this many books and get anything out of it?
