Name That Movie: Black History Month Edition

You ought to be ashamed of your fool self.

You are the equivalent of getting fired on your day off like Craig from "Friday." You dishonor yourself. You dishonor the Ancestors. Watch every movie on this list, expeditiously.

You're not a HUGE disappointment, but this is still kind of disappointing.

What would Martin Luther King, Jr. say if he could see your results right now? He'd probably say "Wait, what is this glowing box with letter buttons on it and what does it do?" Go watch the movies you missed and pray the Ancestors forgive you!

Hey, hey! Not bad!

You've got a decent working knowledge of good movies and cinematic blackness. There's room for improvement, but there always is, right? The Ancestors approve! Good job!
