    Life's Question Mark

    I'll sum up this review on this note after watching this phenomenal, incredibly well directed and produced art form. Kudos to the All Star Cast, Director and Producers! I was moved, touch and overrun with emotion to confirm what I know already about why authoritative abuse is still evident and wide spread in modern day society, with no end in site! My hope is that this movie will break the frozen mentality of those who say, "things are so much better and there is no need to change anything". I strongly encourage everyone from all ethnicities to watch this movie and maybe then society will become more focus and less tolerant of acceptance. Maybe this excellent movie will serve as a precursor to invoke change! Another good buy from Best Buy!

    At first I found the movie hard to watch. I actually stopped it and started watching it again a few days later. I guess i wasn't in the mood for the subject matter and it seemed to start off very slow. However, once i got in to the movie I enjoyed it. The acting was good and it did a good job of showing a more personal side of Dr. King. I did find the pacing of the movie very slow and I wished that the role of Corretta would have been a little more fleshed out. It was a good movie in my opinion but not one of the best in the genre of civil rights movies.

    This is a terrific film full of great performances especially from David Oyelowo who embodies MLK JR, a smart script and passionately directed. A must see film, but as a blu-ray purchase, I recommend this was on sale, the blu-ray is nothing to write home about, the special features are not as expansive as the great film deserves. But other than that, it's one of 2014's best and important films and deserves to be seen regardless.

    My GOD, this it a great great great movie that's based on the true events. I'm from Atlanta and I absolutely know that this is a very honest telling of many truths during this time. I'm not much for civil rights type films, even stay away for the most part. But this film at it heart is very true to events. Also it tells of Malcolm X, David Abernathy, Hosa Willams and others. A great movie.

    Great historical drama of black citizen’s struggle/fight to register and vote unencumbered. I saw this movie in the theater and purchased the blue-ray copy for my media library. I would have like to have seen more of the original footage included in the film. The music is inspiring, I also purchased the CD. Should be viewed with family followed by a discussion on the importance of voting.

    Selma touched my heart. Some of the actions in the film took me by surprise and made me cry. I went through several emotions while watching Selma, parts of the film were upsetting, heartwarming, uplifting, and thought provoking. Selma is a must see film, especially for those who want to know more about and understand the Civil Rights movement.

    Why isn't black history told more often?

    Thisnis an incredible story they should have been made a long time ago. Seeing as how Martin Luther King is my favorite historical figure, it was interesting to see another story of his being told on the screen. David oleywelo is fantastic as Martin Luther King and I would love to see him in a proper biopic on the man who died for the civil rights of black people.

    Selma is an excellent movie for all to see. It is history and I think everyone should see this movie. It brought tears to my eyes and a lot of unpleasant memories, but, it is part of history. I have to grandchildren and this is history they needed to know about. My oldest granddaughter understood a lot more than I thought she would. She asked a lot of questions.
