Tyler Perry Presents Ripping Off Classics
Tyler Perry movies don't appeal to me. Black dudes in drag and fat suits movies have been done better in the past. They're never classics, but a segment of the movie going population eats it up. So, it's a little disturbing when Tyler Perry decides to make a poster for his new Madea movie "I Can Do Bad All By Myself" . . . I'm sorry, I got the name wrong, the movie is naturally called "Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself" . . . rips off the classic Sam Peckinpah movie "Straw Dogs". It's cinematic blasphemy if you ask me. Perry would call it "Tyler Perry's Cinematic Blasphemy". So, if you come across someone that thinks the above poster is great, quickly slap the back of their head, and make them aware that they're praising a rather plagiaristic homage.
