Soul Man (1986) - MAP: 32.65/100
IMDb / Wikipedia?wprov=sfti1) / My Collection
Mark Watson, a rich, pampered shit of a young man has his dreams come true when he’s accepted at Harvard Law - he’s rich, he’s entitled, he’s white - why shouldn’t they, right? Things immediately fall apart when his rich, pampered super-shit of a father decides to cut him off, leaving the bill for college squarely in Mark’s lap. After trying to beg, borrow, or reverse his father’s decision, Mark applies for a scholarship meant for African American students. Taking experimental tanning pills to darken his skin and getting a tight perm, Mark transforms himself and declares it’s the 80’s - America loves Black people! He quickly realizes racism and bigotry are alive and well.
A film that immediately stirred controversy for C. Thomas Howell’s blackfaced performance, I found it interesting, the actors chime in on the film, explaining it was an attempt to teach through humor - but not a peep from the director, Steve Minor, or writer, Carol Black, on Wikipedia. Not being satisfied, I turned to Google and as fate would have it, The Today Show released an article… um, today (!!) in fact - Revisiting 'Soul Man,' the controversial comedy starring a white man in blackface - I checked the date three times. What’s the odds? Still no word from Minor or Black… I think that’s at least as interesting as the film itself.
Rae Dawn Chong has always championed the film, calling it a great love story. Both Spike Lee and the NAACP condemned the film for obvious reasons. Tough film to approach from a neutral point of view for this movie cartographer. If my aim is to give each film in the collection a fair shake, algorithmically, how do I proceed when the film starts from such an unappealing place? Nobody said watching and sharing opinions on film would be easy - this one puts me and the MAP to the test.
So, let’s cut to the chase - I watched the film as Rae Dawn Chong suggests - a rom-com. The storylines are thin, the performances average (cards on the table, Howell and Chong do go on to marry in 1989 and divorce in 1990) but neither I or Mrs. Lady Zedd felt any on-screen chemistry.
As a comedy, it fails - I’m not sure what I was supposed to be laughing at - the running gag of two asshats making racist jokes or maybe Mark Watson’s troubles (police profiling, bigotry on display from all angles, being used by a white girl to piss off her father.) Seeing Howell in a sequence of fantasy snippets, envisioned first as a desperate Black man out of control and dangerously wielding a knife wanting white women, next as Prince, and finally as a pimp telling his white, pregnant girlfriend to get his drug kit. The movie fails as a rom-com, cleanly.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t comment on the blackface performance. The question I think needing an answer here is: were the lessons the filmmakers hoped to teach worth the offensive way they sought to teach it? In my opinion - no.
Presumably the lesson would be aimed at White people, the precise demographic most likely to skip the film and I find it unfathomable to believe they wouldn’t have known that. It seems much more likely they hoped stirring the pot and doing something outlandish might put butts in seats. There was nothing revelatory about Mark Watson’s experiences - the “lessons through humor” aspects were little more than a skipping stone across the very deep and troubling realities of racism in America.
I personally don’t believe the filmmakers hoped to teach - if that were so, I’d expect to easily find Director Steve Miner and Writer Carol Black’s interviews (then and now) easily found and often quoted. The truth of the matter is, if the film wasn’t part of a collection, I’d purge it - as it is, future viewings aren’t likely. Take from that as you will and let us all movie on.

2021.10.20 17:56 myhamsterisajerk Need just a little help
Until now i found about everything, but this one drives me crazy. There is a rocky island up north in the Kluppy Dunes that you can only reach via blimp...it says 3x superb loot, but i searched the area like crazy...i just can't find the third one (1 and 2 were in a big cave where you fight a huge bone monster). Need help, it's the last one, and i searched for an eternity now.

2021.10.20 17:56 playgirlbarbie My period is incredibly light and I’m not sure why.
Hello everyone, my Flo app predicted I was going to start October 17th. Friday & Saturday I had more sex than I usually do, and Sunday morning afterwards ( the 17th ) I noticed light pink fluid on the tissue when I wiped. It happened for the rest of the day but it was barely anything. Monday I spotted brown during the morning then by night it turned a maroon color, Tuesday it was a maroon color or bright red but again it was very minimal. Not enough for a pad or tampon, but everytime I wiped there was some blood. Today, there is more blood, but it still isn’t a lot. It’s either bright red or maroon (mainly maroon) and when I woke up there was some on my pad and whenever I wipe theres blood. I’m also experiencing nausea which I get on my period and experiencing slight cramping.
Is this my period, or is something else going on, and if something else is, any clue what it could be?

2021.10.20 17:56 SimNine Entering Canada from US - Quarantine Requirement question
Myself and a friend are planning on visiting Canada (specifically Quebec) in a few weeks. We are both fully vaccinated with Moderna/Pfizer, we both plan on getting a PCR test a few days before entry, and we are entering by car.
The Canada.ca travel page says that even though we are fully vaccinated, we will have to have a quarantine plan upon arrival to Canada if our vaccination requirements aren't determined to be met. Is this true for everyone? Is this specific to people arriving by plane/boat, rather than by car? If this does indeed apply to us, is "turning around and heading back to the US" a suitable quarantine plan?

I don't really enjoy Expeditions (I did the first one just haven't felt like repeating the process). However I definitely want a pet sandworm and that worm helmet looks awesome. Is the only way to unlock these through Expeditions or are there new game mechanics to unlock these ?

2021.10.20 17:56 Flachforelle Am i the only one who would accept 4 years of pain just to humiliate Ben?
Like, if there would be a possibility where we can dodge his contract and he gets 0 dollars and just sits 4 years i would accept it.
Yes our franchise will be worse, but such a idiot deserves to get humiliated and waste his prime.
What do you think?

2021.10.20 17:56 FreakyFergiefan New adc mythic item idea: Cursed bayonet
80 attack damage
20% critical strike chance
Active - BLACK BAYONET:
For the next 10 seconds increase your damage for the next 3 basic attacks by 35% and reduce your armour and magic resist by 20 while you still have the empowered basic attacks from this active.
The picture would be a man from the shadow isles looking at the bow in shock as the bayonet is on backwards (I know bayonets usually go on guns but i think bows are more fitting for shadow isles) or something along those lines.
I imagine this item would be built by castebursty adcs in niche scenarios (like when ahead or against no assassins) like Draven, miss fortune, jhin, lucian, you know the adcs that ideally want to get ahead rather than scale and also prefer attack damage over attack speed and the active also benefits attack damage over attack speed.
I think riot adding something like this would be cool since caster adcs or snowbally adcs don't really have any items made for them, especially mythics and more niche items, so i think this item would suit them types of adcs but also add a skill ceiling to the timing of the active since a wrong activation can actually be detrimental (like galeforce) again suiting their play styles of more risky adcs who dont want to sit back and scale as much.
I wish riot would add more niche items like this since I think itemisation is a really big part of leagues skill ceiling and a really fun one at that, which has been deviated from ironically with the item overhaul even though their intentions was to increase item diversity and thinking.
