Yeah boy! The acting could be a little shotty, but I have my hopes. MODEL MINORITY BITCHES!!!~

"MODEL" Minority? Man, this is another movie glamourizing organised crime and violence, not about "models". Unless you want to refer to the fact that all criminals in this movie (and their women) look more like models than lowlives. I say SCREW movies glorifying crime and violence.

You've really lost the point haven't you?

DAVIDPD on Aug 14, 2014


I probably have... Care to explain? 🙂

Alex C. on Aug 14, 2014


I was using "model minority" in a sarcastic manner. I thought making the sentence in all uppercase and using the word "bitches" and using a "~" would get that across. But I knew there would be some risk in some one not understanding.

Damn! I missed the sarcasm - sorry about that - and the use of the tilde at the end of your post was lost on me.

No worries man. We are only human.

Acting... bad.
