A bit rough at the beginning

I was very much looking forward to this movie, especially since it has a great cast. However, the beginning is a little bit to graphic, why not just tell what happened instead of showing it? There are already so many horror movies and computer games out there, showing graphic violence. I do like the campaign though, which has put this movie on the map.

Lee Daniels the Butler

The movie was fantastic. The storyline has substance. It shows how DNA does not determine everything in your life. Each member of the family has his or her own thoughts and value system. It shows that in spite of our differences love is always the one constant and with it we can value each other.

I saw the movie 'The Butler' yesterday and it's a GREAT film. It's an outstanding mix of actual facts (it's based upon a true story) and fictional storytelling. The acting is superb, especially by Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey.

Fantastic movie!

This movie was absolutely amazing! It is mainly for those with a higher interest in history and our presidents. It is a very descriptive movie and gives a huge real life example of the way of thought amongst black men and women. Along with white men and women. Those that wish the blacks to be oppressed as apposed to those that do not. And those that are in mutual standings with both sides.
