A decade after its original release in 1978, The Meanest Man in Texas is now more than 70 years old, and it's still as relevant today as it was then. While the new film is very similar to the original, it doesn't pretend to be a remake. The difference is that it's a lot more fun. It's an original tale of a quiet, but brilliant young man who, through sheer willpower, reaches his goal of becoming a state senator. It's also a coming-of-age story of a young man who gets picked on a lot, but has a big dream. There's a lot of excitement, a lot of heart, and even a few funny moments. And yet it's also very real, very easy to identify with, and very uplifting. I also liked the way that it's set in the 1930s. It's still a compelling time period, but the 1930s feel more like the 1930s than like the present day. It's very clean, very clean. There's no sex, violence, or swearing. It's a clean, simple time period that's very easy to get into. It's a very modern story, but it's still a very relevant time period. The writing, acting, and direction are all very good. Kevin Kline and Catherine Keener are really great in this film. I also really liked the casting of Richard Jenkins as the senator. The script is very good, and I loved the way it was put together. There are some great jokes, but also some sad, realistic jokes that work. I also really liked how the movie has so many different time periods. It's a very modern movie, but it's not cliche. It's very interesting, and a very thought-provoking movie. It's very moving, and it's very exciting. I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a good story that's about a good guy who works hard to achieve his goals, but also about a young man who is overcome by his dreams and inspires a whole community. I give this a 9/10.

What was it that made Willie Parker, and other black men, and women, strong and vibrant? I think it was not being demeaned and laughed at, or made fun of for being different, or, dare I say, not being quite white enough, or the idea that we all have a part in the making of a good life for our children, and that we need to be part of that process. I also think it was not only the voices of the great African-American actors, but the way they spoke, their motion and expressions, their voices, the things they said and did that made us feel good. Many of the reviews of this film say that it is insensitive. This is the very same attitude that contributed to the deplorable conditions that existed in this country in the years following Reconstruction. It is certainly the case that a good portion of the movie is set in the south, and I would have to agree that there were definitely elements of racism in the south. However, if you go to the movies to see a biographical drama, you are not supposed to be insensitive to things that happen in the past, and you are not supposed to criticize the present. There is certainly no racism in the movie, as all the characters are characters we know and are connected with. If you think about it, people today are going to judge this movie by the story it tells, and by the fact that some people did not like this movie. Let me suggest a movie that does not need to tell a story of a black man who did what he did to put food on the table, but who also cared about his family. It is "If You Build It, He Will Come" which is about a boy who was a football star, and who is forced to return to his old neighborhood in order to play the next game. He does not come back, but he leaves his mother in tears. Let us not forget that this movie was made in the early 1900s, and when blacks were afraid of going to the movies. Most people today would not want to see a movie about a black man who took care of his family, or cared about his family. I would like to suggest "A Mighty Wind" which tells the story of a courageous athlete, who as a young boy, after losing a bet with his brother, decides to take his brother's place in a football game. He does not come back, but his brother goes on to win the game, and they live happily ever after. In closing, I would like to thank my favorite black writer, Oscar Wilde, for his wisdom, and for teaching me what it means to be a good man. And lastly, for all of the African-Americans and for all of the other human beings who made up the human race, I think it is time to say, thank you for having lived and died and given the greatest gift of all, to be able to see that a lot of us have contributed to making a better life for our children. I think that it is time for us to celebrate that by getting up and singing "Thank you, we live too good to die" and standing up for our rights, and for our country. Finally, I hope that the movie is received very well,

Finally, after so long waiting for the film version of "Gone with the Wind", I finally had the opportunity to view "The Meanest Man in Texas". It's no subtle or refined work of art, but it's certainly one of the best film adaptations of the historical novel. Though it can't take the title away from "The Wonderful, Fabulous, Gory True Story of the Birth of the Confederacy," "The Meanest Man in Texas" does manage to tell the story of Gen. Sherman (played by Mickey Rourke) during the War, and how he came to be a commander, rather than a person. Though not one of his finest, Rourke is perfect for the role, and he delivers an honest, genuine performance. The story itself is a bit more interesting than "Gone With the Wind" and "The Birth of the Confederacy," but it's still more than a little simple. The basic storyline follows the initial plan of a local warlord (played by Thomas Ian Nicholas) to split the southern states of the union into two separate nations: the north and south. That plan was changed in the final stages of the War, with the White House ordering the Union to give the south and the west to the Confederacy, and the north and east to the Union. The events leading to that fateful decision were pretty interesting, and you can tell the director knew what he was doing, as the costumes and scenery are all hand-made in Texas, using small town details and local stories. This is a really nice film, not a masterpiece by any means, but it does have its own charm and quality that I can't help but notice. Grade: B+
