From “Poverty Porn” to “Historical Porn”

I remember when “Precious” was deemed “poverty porn” and now Lee Daniels’ latest, “The Butler” is being called “historical porn”. I highly respect Harry Lennix as an actor, so I had to read this article on Shadow and Act. I won’t form an opinion before seeing the movie in its entirety, but I will say that it’s definitely one of those movies that’s just made for Oscar nominations. What do you think? Is “The Butler” DOA?
