Bring on the buzz!

We all need to be makin’ lots-o-noise for this movie, which is now in theaters everywhere.

My family went opening night, and as hard has it is to hold back, I’ll wait to write a review until more of you have seen it. IT IS WORTH SEEING, even if you don’t like war flicks (not my favorite genre, either) (see it for all the reasons we already know and a bunch you haven’t thought of), and to see if you agree with Roger Ebert.

Scroll down to see what others are saying, add your own comments to the conversation. Write a quick review and let us know what you really think of the film. All respectful views are welcome.

I’m all for anything encouraging that lifts up positive black stories to the forefront of world culture and gets folks talking about these stories. Amazing that I can still truthfully say that in 2012.

And I don’t say this only because I’m a black, southern child of the Civil Rights Movement; with a father who served in the Philippines in WWII and returned “home” to the segregated south; who is telling her own under told story in the form of Peach Seed Monkey .

The Point Is ~ Vote with your movie dollars for the Tuskegee Airmen, real American action heroes. Let this be a portal into the meaning of the all-too-real deeper story of that era for our heroes and all black Americans ~ that of anger at the long arm of the Jim Crow situation back home.
