      Mongo like candy.

      “Telegram!”

      *****

      Seriously, if facts are omitted, then it’s just more propaganda.

      Why not just leave them in and make a better, more objective, effective movie?

      Here’s a movie: Cop thinks he’s pulled out a Taser, but he’s pulling the trigger on his gun. That’s a Will Ferrell movie, there. Call it Moron Cop.

      Ok, and he did a year in prison for being a moron. He wasn’t a murderer.

      I am a black man that believes in family values and doing for yourself and not slinging rock or getting welfare ok. But tell me why that white cracker dolf lungdren racist cop only took African negros off that subway can you tell me that. And why they was sweating Oscar and his crew over coupple thrown punches with a jailhouse cracker and why the 50 only didn’t take the white dude started the fight off the train can you tell me that. What it got to do with anthngn Oscar was in jail on possession before and selling little weed what they got to do with my the cop shot that nrgro tell me that sir.

      What a wretched review. The first half is essentially a smear job on the unarmed victim. And totally irrelevant. He had been in prison and cheated on his girlfriend (OMG!)….so what? Not germane in any way to an unarmed man being shot in the back at point blank range.

      The rest of the review is an exercise in excuse making for a cop who made the biggest mistake a cop can make. It would have been nice if you’d actually written about the movie, instead of the actual case the movie’s based on.

      Seriously, why not just move to the op-ed page, Smith, since you’re incapable of writing a review that doesn’t have a political agenda?

      At least Lumenick tries to talk about cinema, and puts his political leanings to the side, where they belong in a film review. Weird thing is you’d probably be a better critic than him and quite a few other “top critics” (admittedly a low bar) if you could pull back your desire to be George Will. Rather than liking or disliking movies, you seem to turn each review into a chance to vent about whatever political issue crawled up your butt most recently. Unfortunately that makes your otherwise fairly competent writing useless as film criticism.

      Are you serious? Prison is now no big deal?

      No, kishke, try reading for context. I said it was no big deal (same for cheating on your girlfriend) in the context of an unarmed man being shot in the back of the head at point blank range. Of course being an ex-con is a big deal, but we don’t yet live in a society where it is grounds for a police officer to act as executioner. Cops don’t get to decide that somebody who WAS in prison deserves to die based on that fact. Which is immaterial here anyway as the cop had no way of knowing the victim’s police record. A cop acted with reckless disregard for human life and was convicted of manslaughter; Kyle Smith, for whatever reason, wants to minimize the tragedy while defending the cop. Morally perverse priorities.

      I said it was no big deal

      That was said by Joe Smith, not by you, Bob, you little sock puppet, you.

      but we don’t yet live in a society where it is grounds for a police officer to act as executioner. Cops don’t get to decide that somebody who WAS in prison deserves to die based on that fact.

      And who ever said otherwise?

      Kyle Smith, for whatever reason, wants to minimize the tragedy while defending the cop. Morally perverse priorities.

      Kyle’s not defending anyone. He’s pointing out that the film omitted a fact that would have reflected badly on Grant. It is a comment on the biases of the filmmakers.

      I thought this was a powerful picture, and found the climactic BART scene nuanced actually. Like a documentary. Yes, the cops did seem kind of goonish, but it was a tense, high-adrenaline situation and they were trying to restore order.

      The flaw in the film is that the whole event really is a tragic accident, and very little leading up to that accident — Oscar’s background, his Last Day — is particularly relevant to how he died. Except for the fact that the fight was started by his skinhead jailbird rival.

    14. Kyle Says:
      October 25th, 2013 at 4:37 pm

      Bingo, plus much of what happened on that Last Day was simply fabricated.

    15. Kyle Says:

      Kishke, Bob and Joe do indeed have the same IP address.

    16. kishke Says:
      October 26th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

      I’m sure they do. That’s why he’s a sock puppet. He should keep better track of which name he uses when.
