I think every American should be forced to watch this movie.

It took me a long while to sit down and watch it. But it's totally worth it.Thumbsup

Wow...

Tend to agree with you KC. Think everyone should watch it.

I agree that it's a pretty good movie, with a pretty decent message, but I gotta tell you folks.... The people who think like the bad guys, well they wouldn't watch the movie the same way as you or I.

The people they would be rooting for aren't the same ones, and some of the harder to watch scenes wouldn't be as hard to watch for those people.

On a side note, I've witnessed a curb stomping in real life, and ... glad they cut away in the movie.

A great movie. Hard and heavy. My favourite scene is when a guy is forced to bite the stairs... Jesus.

Haven't seen it for quite some time now.

I realise that. That's why it's hard to watch. The guy *believes his own bullshit*, you can see it. The only reason he breaks out of it is kinda... well I bet that'd happen to one in a million guys, but it is a movie after all...

Seen worst.

But yeah fantastic movie.
Saw it for the first time a week or two back.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

RE: American History X
As a perpetually angry white male who is constantly enraged by the behavior of "thugs," I have this movie memorized.

Favorite parts are when he's lying in the infirmary after the prison scene and the teacher simply asks, "has anything you've done made your life better?" And he just thinks about it and breaks into tears. Very simply observation about something he believes is a very meaningful part of his life.

And also, "Hate is baggage. Life's too short to be pissed off all the time."

"Ain't got no last words to say, yellow streak right up my spine. The gun in my mouth was real and the taste blew my mind."

"We see you cry. We turn your head. Then we slap your face. We see you try. We see you fail. Some things never change."
