Wesley Blade Trinity sucked because it was basically a rehash of the last two films and nothing intresting happened in it. Also the villians where lame and Goyer was too busy kissing Ryan Reynolds ass to focus on making a good movie.
Not to menition there was little character development through the 3 films.

If he is so discriminated against why where the first two blade films so successful. They wouldn't of made a third if the other two where not popular, so his arguement doesn't hold water.

Wesely Snipes is an embarrasment to our race. If anything, he's been given preferential treatment because he's a celebirty. If that was any one of us, our houses, car, and payroll checks will be garnished until the debt is paid. My father had a run in with the IRS. And they confiscate, and ask questions later. How could he be so stupid to not file taxes in 4 years being the high profile celebirty he is. And Blade 3 sucked because the story was ****ty, and the action was mediocre at best.

Actor Wesley Snipes has slammed the media for portraying him as a "bad guy" after he was charged with tax fraud, claiming he is a victim of racism. Snipes, 45, is due to stand trial next month in Florida on charges he fraudulently claimed tax refunds of almost $12 million in 1996 and 1997. He is also accused of failing to file tax returns from 1999 to 2004. But the star has blamed the press and its racial prejudice for over-exaggerating the scandal, and depicting him as a villain. He says, "It was easy for people to jump on the 'Wesley's the bad guy' bandwagon. That's where I think the systematic racism comes in. We're conditioned in this country to believe that if there's a problem, the black man is the culprit." Snipes also blames discrimination for the box office failure of his 2004 movie Blade: Trinity. He adds, "There are so few guys who do action and do it well. Even fewer who are African-American. Even fewer who have classical-theater training. So a cat like me coming in, I'm bringing all of that to an action movie. Since there are so few people that do this and have that pedigree, people disregard their contribution."

Yeah... I'm sure that tax evasion thing had nothing to do with it.
So Wesley Snipes should be portrayed in the media as a good guy because he didn't pay his taxes?

Also, didn't he say he didn't even want to be a part of Blade Trinity?

It's not that I couldn't figure it out. It's that it made no sense.

Black people aren't monolithic, regardless of what the media tries to tell America...and the world.

Wesley doing dumb shiznit has nothing to do with me. Or any other black person.

I'm a big Snipes fan. This thread should have been titled the Wesley Snipes appreciation thread, as he definitely deserves one.

He still looks like he can kick some ass. Did anyone see him with Denzel at the Mayweather/Haggler fight two weeks ago...?

Snipes is the man!

Jeeze. Now Wesley's just plain abusing the race card. That thing should only be used in job interviews, applications to Ivy League schools, interracial dating, and getting Barack Obama into the senate.

Okay people,

Before you slam Wesley at least here his side of the story:

http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20165873,00.html

Do I think Wesley's allegations of racism are ridiculous? Absolutley. But I do agree with his issues regarding Blade Trinity? Who doesnt? Seems his problems with the film were the same that everyone else had. And frankly, I find his battle with the IRS over tax refunds rather endearing if not slightly comedic. Who doesnt want to get millions of bucks back from the Tax Man.

Wes has got that swagger and charisma that shines so much in real life that you cant help but root for him. His movies havent aged well by any means but his characters are classic (Nino Brown, Blade and Simon Phoenix).

The whole article is brilliant, like you couldnt make this stuff up. Yo, this nygga tried create bodygaurd service of Amen-Ra Students!!!!! LMAO@ the feds trying to connect him Malachi York!!! Serious, think about that for a second. Let that swirl in your head. Who in there right mind links Malachi York to Wesley Snipes. I'm laughing out right now just thinking about it.

For sheer ludicriousness alone I hope Wesley comes back from all this. We need people like him on the screen. Denzel only has so much swagger to carry around.

Reading that article and remembering some of his films, I'm already wishing he gets put in the next Batman film. I dont even care who he plays. He can play Nino Brown, resurrected from the Lazurus Pit and leader of the League of Shadows gang in Gotham!! . I will play top Dollar for a Bale-Snipes movie!


Keep ya head up Wes!

Snipes has more swagger than Denzel to me. Denzel is more GQ. Snipes is more street.

Even his name is cool!

I read about an incident a few years back where Snipes got into a full blown battle with some security guards, at a hotel. Snipes is a real life martial artist, so when security try to subdue him, he put some serious **** on their asses, and they had to call for back-up to finally get him out of the hotel, LOL!

I'll try and find the article later.

That's not how the media sees it. How many times has the media made this the focus of the story? Even if there was racial bias, the media diminishes the effectiveness of the racism charge, when they trivialize it, by comparing it to a card.
