Critics aren't liking it so far...but I really want to see it. I thought the trailer was very entertaining.

I don’t know why they let Tim Story do this.

I'm hearing it sucks because of anachronistic, offensive jokes and an air of hyper masculinity... so count me in!

I was very relieved that they addressed the uncle situation.

This is going to flop, and flop badly. I seriously have not seen any advertising for this, anywhere.

I've seen plenty of advertising for it (literally every commercial break), still think it won't do amazingly well tho.

Which wound up being BS, this is now looking at $8m.

If you live outside the US (or use VPN) you can watch this on Netflix in two weeks.

Having just seen the original and it's sequel this week, I don't think that Samuel Jackson has the right brand of swagger for Shaft.
