Who can we trust if not our own!
The movie Queen and Slim just hurt me to my soul. Lena Waithe must have thought this was gonna be a good story to tell at this time. I think not, however, who am I? There are so many horrible things about this movie for a really woke brother like myself. This movie was just as dumb as all of the horror movies I have ever seen. The only thing I liked about Queen and Slim was the cinematography. In my opinion, movies that show a strong black woman with a weak black man pisses me off every time.
Slim and Queen’s first date takes an unexpected turn when a policeman pulls them over for a minor traffic violation. When the situation escalates, Slim takes the officer’s gun and shoots him in self-defense. Now labeled cop killers in the media, Slim and Queen feel that they have no choice but to go on the run and evade the law. When a video of the incident goes viral, the unwitting outlaws soon become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief, and pain for people all across the country.
I wasn’t going to go into detail about the movie because I usually want people to go see the movie. In this case, I don’t even care, I have to share my thoughts on particular scenes that I thought were horrible. Slim was an idiot throughout the entire movie and there was no way he would have lasted as long as he did without Queen who was also the dumbest lawyer I have ever seen! I see why her client got the death penalty. What type of lawyer goes on the run with you when you commit a crime, or even when she is shot by a cop for no reason! On camera! The entire incident was captured!
There were so many laws broken by that idiot cop that there was no need to run at all. To surrender would have been the best option, but for the sake of the movie, since they chose to go on the run from the cops, and there were no other cops anywhere in the vicinity. Why are they stopping everywhere to hang out and kick it like they are not on the run from the cops? I guess that just to make the movie last longer and to get you all in your feelings for these to crazy people. So far, Slim has the worst luck with women.
Queen and Slim should have been on an episode of America’s Dumbest Criminals.
How did they get so far in the same car that they just got pulled over in? The same car that was just involved in the shooting of a cop. They stayed in the same car until it ran out of gas. Then Queen and Slim were picked up by an off duty Sherrif. This Sherrif had his radio on him. He heard nothing about the incident until he gets into the store to get the gas. After the cop suspects them of the crime, he then approaches them while they are attempting to leave in his truck without using his radio at all. They were able to pull a gun out on the Sherrif and kidnap him, make him drive them back to the car. Then put him in the trunk of their car with his radio still on.
What in the world made them go to this man for help.
Who in their right mind would pick these shoes when they are running from the cops. That was just one of the many stupid decisions Queen and Slim made in this movie.
The worst part of this so-called protest movie is that they were protected by a white man and betrayed by a black man. I have no idea how that makes sense, but hey, who am I to judge.
