Why is there so much commotion about some capeshit flick, when real, actually good afrokino doesn't even get near as much publicity?

USA is a country filled with overgrown manchildren

why is a film about horrible situations that's cleverly adapted to be gritty and engaging not as popular as a film contrived from the Marvel movie making formula?

he seemed to enjoy his role quite a lot, almost too much

This movie shows that real Africa has it's problems, people don't want to be reminded of that they want to live in fantasy land.

Made by netflix.
It really pissed me off as well cause this was lumped in as an after-thought (by people who obviously never watched it) with Creed and Straight Outta Compton by twitter during the whole #oscarssowhite

Although, what pissed me off even more was that oscars ceremony where they had footage from the film in the opening montage and Abraham Attah presented an award I think. It was as if to say, "no we didn't snub the film, we genuinely thought it was worse than the fucking Martian"

But yeah, literally a masterpiece.

Idris is nowhere near as much of a big shot as the internet memes him to be. He's b-list at best

why is some movie being used as political and cultural propaganda pushing aside something good?

Gee I don't know OP.

aren't the oscars basically just one big advertisement ceremony for the film studios? like most award shows

Now, I consider myself a good person. I try my best at helping my fellow man. When someone asks me if I can do them a favour, I usually do it. It makes me feel good, and it usually means they'll be nice to me, and others, in return. But boy oh boy I tell you, I would probably reject him that favour.

Fukanagua was straight off of True Detective, and Elba is black, so he probably felt that the material was highlighting something important to him.
