    Yeah she presented pretty poorly but, tbh, so did Rice so it's possible Newton is actually the finest actor of her generation.

    Seriously, there's some bad caricatures in the film. The bloke playing Rummy phoned it in a bit. But it doesn't matter that much, the film as a whole was pretty good.

    I still enjoyed it but have to agree with everything you've said about it. And, tbh, it's exactly the same reason I don't get the popularity of American History X, just doesn't ring true. Found it quite ridiculous by the end, more so than Philadelphia.

    Can see where you're coming from. I think American History X's popularity comes much moreso from its pure style than anything else. As a propaganda flick it has nowhere near the potential to influence people that Philadelphia has. It's just considerably more fun. More artistic value, less political value.

    God, as much as it pains me to do so, I have to DWTA. So many people I know cite it as their definitive anti-racism film.

    Wow, the protagonist was raped in a prison shower by white supremacists who he thought were on his side whereupon he miraculously realised the error of his ways, especially when a black guy helps him out. How realistic.

    If nothing else, it's a novel therap(e)y for bigotry I guess.

    That and Norton's pecs were immense in that film. Roidz for the win.

    CW movies discussions are better than the movie discussions we have on the separate movie forum I go to btw. CW rocks and all that jazz.

    Filmspotting is pretty good. They have a spoiler free review thread which gives you reviews of a lot of movies a lot of other things going. But I spend more time on CW off topic and only read movie reviews and stuff there occassionally.

    I liked American History X. Anything with Norton in it is worth a watch imo. Except perhaps Incredible Hulk, not his kind of movie I reckon.
