“Glory” is back on Netflix. Its about the first all black company in the civil war. Was released in 1989 and I remember it being one of the first movies that made me choke up when I was a kid. Very powerful flick

it should be on anyone’s top 10 watch list 🇺🇸

Great film. Denzel's lashing scene and the final battle/ending was just :wtc:

I think this may be the dumbest thing I have ever seen you post. What a stupid take..

Back when I was in 8th grade, our LA history teacher would turn Friday into movie day. We went through Roots, Roots: The Next Generation, and Glory. For the class before our Christmas break, I kid you not, we watched Roots: The Gift. :rofl:

let me guess, green book and crash were also great films?

Was okay with both. Not exactly rewatchable material like Glory is.

What other movies get you triggered as much as this? American History X? Forrest Gump?

dont you think white people realizing black people are “good” is a tired Hollywood troupe?

No. It's called having a story to tell. Glory explored the reality of black soldiers serving under a white man during the Civil War. Showed how both parties wound up bonding through everything. Including the end
where Broderick and Denzel were literally buried next to each other.

I mean, if you want to see an opposite version of it, go watch White Man's Burden with John Travolta and Harry Belafonte.

Ahh, you are a romantic...

do you think 1989 there were people proclaiming the brilliance of 1958 movies? For example, the best picture Gigi about a grown man in love with a child?

I’d like to think in 31 years our notion of race has evolved beyond Glory being a good race movie, IMHO.

Probably so. Especially since there are people to this day praising Gone with the Wind and Wizard of Oz. Your problem is your inability to see past racial issues. The point is, is that even In the worst of times like a war, people who are at exact ends of the social ladder can find a way to bond and become friends. It's not solely about "Yay, black people are good." I'm starting to wonder if you've ever even seen the movie.
