Entertaining and Educational
This is an entertaining and educational movie. There are relatively few
good movies on the struggle for civil rights for African Americans and
this is one of them (there are plenty of good documentaries). It's an
inspirational story of a small college in Texas (for African Americans)
that is training some students in debating skills during the 1930's
Roosevelt America. They compete within the local area and win enough
debates to start touring on a national level. In their struggle to
attain recognition they witness and are victimized by the evil of the
'Jim Crow' south.
One of the debaters is a young James Farmer who later was to be an
organizer of CORE (Congress of Racial Equality) and in the early 1960's
took part in the 'Freedom Rides' in the deep south. Many of the civil
rights leaders started to come of age during the 1930's and for them it
was a long and arduous journey to the legislative achievements of the
1960's. One of the strengths of this film is it depicts the growth of
civil rights as an ongoing movement that took place over several
All the actors in this film are convincing and the story is one that
needs to be told..

The bone collector, this is a movie that I was so amazed when I watched it. I was really surprised on how to communicate through forensic language with crime scene are merged together to perform a award worthy movie of such intelligence. The Manchurian Candidate, the movie that tell the world that corruption and crime live comfortable among the people of power, they do not give any damn of whatever it's going to cause even if half of the world will pay the ransom all they care for is to achieve their mission at all cause..

Canibal: Featuring Anthony Hopkins and Julian Morre, absolutely impressive. its got high and low suspense that would hav u gripping ur sofa tight and letting go. Its a must!! Terminator 4: The movie is great but I feel they should have showed more terminators. The terminators are like an extinct specie in that movie, I somehow feel misled to watching it. Anmd whilke I can say the graphics are great and the movie is brilliant, I'm just not satisfied..
Entertaining As I like to say, this movie is very entertaining. It is not as great as Rainforest Classics "Stomp the Yard", "the Gospel" or "This Christmas", but I only asked to be entertained when I sat down to watch this film. I was glad to see a film that cast the hilarious Tony Rock, Vivica A. Fox, Jason Winston George, and Jazsmin Lewis all in one film together. I am a fan of Fox, Rock and George although this proved to be a big role for George to carry at this point in his career. Especially under this director whom I must say is over his head with this job. By the way, his movie stands on its own independent of "Two Can Play...". If you want to get in the Rainforest spirit, get your hands on the aforementioned "Stomp the Yard" Stomp the Yard (Widescreen Edition) and "The Gospel" The Gospel (Special Edition). But despite any shortcomings of the film not being a masterpiece of cinema, it was well worth price paid as an entertaining comedy that I enjoyed. I was pleasantly surprised to see the film acting debut of Hot 107.9 Atlanta's Rashan Ali in the movie in a supporting role as one of Jazmin Lewis' character's best friends. Rashan has a bright spirit in the radio studio and as an Atlanta Hawks announcer and she does well in this movie. I'll be looking for her in upcoming projects. Vivica does her regular "thing" in this movie with grand style and her fans will be pleased to see her go through the paces. Another odd but pleasant surprise for me was the prominent placement of Upscale Magazine, one of my favorite magazines. I've been reading that magazine almost every month for many years and it was funny to see it on the big screen as almost a co-star of the movie. Big ups to the Affluent Lifestyle! If you only buy one film every 2 years, this may not be the one for you. But if you like funny, entertaining movies and you like the work of any of the cast members featured, this movie is an easy choice. at the end of the day, this is a movie that is now a part of my collection right next to its predecessor, "Two Can Play That Game". "Hollywood" Will Packer and "Big Time" Bernard Bronner put their stamp on it so I had to check it out. I know I'm on point because I got mine through Amazon Prime but both of my daughters each bought one this week too, one at Wal-Mart and the other at Best Buy..
very inspiring.. .
I really liked this movie. When it was running in the theaters, I
somehow missed it, and finally watched it on DVD.
First of all, I was not sure how one could make a movie about debates.
This movie kept me glued to the seat (OK, the sofa) throughout, as if
it was a sports or a drama movie. Actually it had elements of both.
There was a real story that moved at a very nice pace. The atmosphere
of the 1930's seemed well depicted. There is some violence, but it is
never over the top. The romantic scenes were tastefully done, and they
added to the story/drama.
The best part was the acting. All the main characters- Denzel
Washington, Nate Parker, Jurnee Smollett (sp?), Denzel Whitaker,
Forrest Whitaker were all superb. The younger Whitaker is very
talented. Is he the real life son of Forrest Whitaker? The scene
between him and Nate Parker after Parker returns drunk, was
particularly well done.
The debates were just the right length- just snipets of the key points.
Longer speeches would have slowed down the movie and made it boring.
Excellent direction (by Denzel Washington), editing, cinematography.
The music was very appropriate.
I really enjoyed this movie. I highly recommend it..
