After Superman Returns struggled at the box office and The Dark Knight became a surprise $1 billion hit, the folks at Warner Bros. decided to reboot the D.C. movies as D.C. Extended Universe using the dark and gritty style of the Dark Knight Trilogy. That hasn’t worked out so far. Man of Steel barely broke even and the mixed reviews made a few people worried about the franchise’s future. The dour interpretation of Superman didn’t work and the editing and pacing was a mess, but at least it had an interesting villain. Batman v Superman was terrible and had one of the worst villains of any comic book movie I’ve seen. When that film was eviscerated by the critics, Warner Bros. stepped in and made last minute changes to Suicide Squad. Did it work? Nope. But is it better than BvS?

The Book of Negroes is an award-winning Canadian novel by Lawrence Hill that came out in 2007. It was turned into a six-part TV mini-series, also called The Book of Negroes that aired in its native Canada early this year. The mini-series earned the best ratings for an original program in 25 years. So it was a popular mini-series, but is it also award-worthy like the book was? Are there enough extras on the three-disc DVD to be worth picking up?
