While the first 20 seconds or so of the Dear White People trailer look like a Tyler Perry parody movie, stick with it, okay? The movie, which got a great response at Sundance, is a look at a group of African-American students at a predominantly white university in this oh-so-post-racial world of ours. It looks smart and funny, and I’ll never watch Gremlins the same way again.
After watching a few clips from the movie on YouTube, I am thoroughly onboard and looking forward to October. I mean, first we have Jackie telling off Beaver in the weirdest Veronica Mars reunion ever.
Then, because I’ll never hear Dennis Haysbert’s powerful sultry voice and not immediately place it in this context, we have a very strange Allstate commercial.
