Ghostman's rating of the film The Color Purple

Doesn't hold up very well, even dramatically and tonally off at times. Spielberg, why do you feel the need to whitewash history all the time? For real, so homophobic what he did here. Not cool. He should have waited five years and asked Spike Lee or Julie Dash to do it and produce it or something. Of course Spielberg had to take the glory of it all.
