Makes you wonder about people, it is obvious this clown Ali is just plain Stupid and or EVIL, SLAVERY exists in 40% of the WORLD TODAY, Egypt just made Slavery a part of their new constitution, Madagascar still holds SLAVE AUCTIONS every Month, as well as most of the African Continent, All of the Islamic World practices SLAVERY. I doubt they will ever say a Word about their people holding SLAVES TODAY.
Made in China. By actual Slaves.
And they’re selling Massa, too!

Love your tag line.
about a year ago one studio exec said, “We no longer are in the movie biz, we are in the toy business. We amke more profit form action figures than films.” don’t know if that is correct but it sure looks like it.
Want a taste of slavery? Try not paying your taxes.
Does the Leo figure come with his own whip.
Which was? Asking politely. The “truths” in his realms were...well...but I probably agree with you.
saw it last weekend...
it needs to be seen on the big screen..
it is a typical quentin tarantino movie, well done, but a bit on the long side..
my opinion, it is worth the price of admission..
