The Matrix - being the best movie EVER - wins this. I just remember being legitimately flabbergasted once the punch line was revealed. many movies strive to employ a twist that wows the viewer. Matrix took my f***ing breath away (Inception didn't).

Besides that, Matrix is PERFECT for explaining the concept of Zen in a metaphorical way. Illusory world clouding our perception and all.

Changed the entire way movies were made. Killer fights/gun fights.

I cannot say enough. Inception was aiight but I only every watched it the one time. Rick and Morty made a spoof of it that I have watched more often and enjoyed more.

Jesus.......

Ancient Egypt = Africans. Moses passed for Egyptian. Jesus is a descendant...

(A lot of times people tell me that Egypt wasn't black because northern Africans weren't as dark as Sub Saharan. Norwegians are lighter than Greeks but I do believe they all are considered "white". If a northern African from thousands of years ago found himself in America in 2014 he would be considered black. So yeah.)

Archaeological and Historical evidence points to the Exodus never having happened. Looking at things from a scientific background ethnically the Jewish population which Jesus descended from is from the Levant and would likely look very similar to modern middle eastern Jews and other ethnic groups from the Levant region. Basically he would almost certainly be of middle eastern appearance, certainly not white, but not black either, simply a typical middle eastern man.

`Israeli archaeologist Ze'ev Herzog provides the current consensus view on the historicity of the Exodus: “The Israelites never were in Egypt. They never came from abroad. This whole chain is broken. It is not a historical one. It is a later legendary reconstruction—made in the seventh century [BCE]—of a history that never happened.” `

`Finkelstein and Silberman argue that instead of the Israelites conquering Canaan after the Exodus (as suggested by the book of Joshua), most of them had in fact always been there; the Israelites were simply Canaanites who developed into a distinct culture.[19] Recent surveys of long-term settlement patterns in the Israelite heartlands show no sign of violent invasion or even peaceful infiltration, but rather a sudden demographic transformation about 1200 BCE in which villages appear in the previously unpopulated highlands;[20] these settlements have a similar appearance to modern Bedouin camps, suggesting that the inhabitants were once pastoral nomads, driven to take up farming by the Late Bronze Age collapse of the Canaanite city-culture.`

If we're going by scientific evidence then there's no proof Yeshua ben Yosef (what Jesus would have actually been called) existed at all and we are doing something along the lines of debating Black Adam's ethnicity.

I would think he was Brown, not Black. *shrug*

I am brown. Wherever I go people call me black. There are very few literally black as in the color or fresh asphalt black people on Earth IF THEY ACTUALLY EXIST. The vast vast majority of "black" people are brown. Likewise, there are very few literally white people IF ANY.

So what's it gonna be? By your definition everyone is a brown person, some just browner than others.

I will say it again: if Barry O is black then Jesus would have been considered black. If Jesus would not be considered black (assuming my math is correct about Jesus being descendant from a tribe of people who could pass for North African) then no one is.

Doesn't Rocket Racoon have a bit of toon force? Not like full fledged but he's sort of a Bugs Bunnyish trickster shoehorned into a space opera? No?

Either way: Rocket scorches the earth that Deathstroke is standing on with something that go BOOM real loud.

No he doesn't. He's just extremely smart(smarter than Tony), able to think of plans on the fly(one of the top strategists in Marvel), carries weaponry greater than Earth has, tech that surpasses Tony's, etc, very agile, so on.

Some of the pics I see of him with guns are just ridic tho. Perhaps it's exaggerated for comedic effect at times?

@edblank: At this point making offensive statements privately can't work anymore. Look at the whole Sterling thing. He said a bunch of racist sh*t inside his own home, got taped, and f*ck*d up even more. Freedom of Speech doesn't really exist anymore, we just pretend it does until the next public shaming campaign hits the news stands.

In Sterling's case I agree 1000% that he should have every right to tell his GF whatever is going through his head and it shouldn't matter to his business. SHE is the one who violated him because let's be honest: if the actor who plays Captain America was caught *privately* talking about how much he hates America and all Americans and he's really secretly a Russian KGB operative, could you honestly sit down and watch Cap 3 and ignore all that?

So while I think it's f***ed up that dude's GF did him like that, I can't sit there and support the man knowing what I know (surprise: I'm black). That's what "his" team felt and all the "subhuman animals" that play for the NBA felt. You can think what you want but make sure you never ever need any of the people you have such a low opinion of.

You just cannot do this stuff in public anymore. I know you think it's your G-d given right to do and say what you please with no regard for decorum. I get it. That just makes you an azzhole tho.

Lil Wayne and Rick Ross lost endorsements for rap lyrics - maybe THE most inflammatory offensive form of communication - and Mel Gibson and Co. have lost jobs and such because of things they have said.

The takeaway here is keep your stupid mouth shut until you get back home to your like minded pinhead family and friends. Don't Tweet it, don't leave it on a voicemail. How slow do you have to be to keep acting surprised?

Gary Oldman is obviously mad that he can't call people slurs and he let it burst out here. I have a feeling that this will blow back on him as it should. KEEP IT TO YOURSELF STUPID.

"Negro" is not some proper name for black people. It is the market term for sub-Saharan slaves. As much as it pains you, that's over now. You will of course keep using it cause you get some kind of sustenance from hurting people, but at least now you'll have to FEIGN ignorance.

Usually the "goodness" of a story comes with not knowing exactly what the end is going to be. Sure the hero dies sometimes in stories but they kinda make you think he'll make it then BAM. Makes it interesting.

This? "Wolverine's gonna die." Then a car barely misses him. Then a piano falls from the sky and just misses him. I imagine this will be like Final Destination. I'm yawning.
