These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Malcolm X
Anvilicious: The end, in which Ossie Davis flat-out tells us what to think about Malcolm X.
Award Snub: The film received a whopping two Oscar nominations for Best Actor (Washington) and Best Costume Design. It won neither.
Misaimed Marketing: "X Brand" potato chips. Yes, they were Kosher Halal. Yes, all the proceeds went to charity. Still...
Narm: As moving as the ending montage is, the sequence immediately after it, with the schoolchildren shouting "I am Malcolm X!" in succession, comes across as a bit forced and over-dramatic.
Oscar Bait: An epic biopic about an icon of the civil rights movement featuring a cameo by fucking Nelson Mandela?? Seems like an Oscar grab if ever there was one... and yet, the film managed to be overlooked spectacularly when awards season rolled around.
