NO SUPERHEROES IN THE MOVIE FRUITVALE STATION

If you’ve had it up to here with summertime superheroes, explosions, and special effects, and you’re hungry for a movie that tells a STORY, then Fruitvale Station might be the movie for you. See it and you’ll discover a newly minted 26 year old writer/director named Ryan Coogler, who has enormous potential and shows it in this – his first movie. The story details the last 24 hours in the life of Oscar Grant, 22, who was killed by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) police on New Year’s Eve in 2008. Actor Michael B Jordan is brilliant in the role of a sometimes sweet, sometimes violent guy. All the actors are stellar. The human story behind the tragedy is somewhat idealized and forgiving, but it seems VERY real, and the movie has won all sorts of film festival awards. (Opens July 12)

    More cultural marxist propaganda films. The destruction of America goes on successfully. And by the way, for all these libtards and black ppl woshippers, here’s smth they should certainly read:

    Your dates are off. Oscar Grant died about 1 am on January 1, 2009.

    Xyz, I find it unfortunate that you had to post a link to such hatred on this wonderful site. I hope you stop to think as to how American blacks got to this point in the first place. I am not black, but I lived in Africa for two years and blacks are different there. Think about that, in this country during slavery blacks were bread like animals for their physical attributes, that’s why they are the worlds most dominant athletes. They were denied educations and were basically prevented from advancing in life, they could only grow up to be slaves. America did a number on black people and all they want to do is criticize them now. Get a clue and some sympathy.

    Well I’ve heard good things about this movie and so I might see it. I too am getting tired of all this racial stuff. Take a look around there are more people of color and bi-racial children being born every year than whites. We need to be able to have conversations about race or this stuff will never end. Every race has been enslaved to someone at some time in history…every RACE. Learn some history people beyond your own nose and it might make you think differently.
