Re: Movies Seen in 2012

I understand what your saying but it's based on a true story. Without Shaw, you don't have much of a story beyond black soldiers getting to fight in the Civil War. Shaw's story is integral to the creation of the 54th. So could you do a movie on the 54th Massachusetts and not focus on Shaw, sure probably. However I think it would do an injustice to his story as much as the black soldiers.

I like Glory quite a bit, but it is annoying to have another movie about an important event in black history starring a white guy (or, in this case, two of them).
Itís funny how some distance, makes everything seem small and the fears that once controlled me, canít get to me at all

Of course I'm a creationist. I believe man created god.
