Is Tyler Perry the best filmmaker in Hollywood?

Tyler Perry recently announced he is killing off the character that made him famous. The filmmaker said, Madea is in her last days, but luckily for him he doesn't have to rest on his laurels. Perry has plenty of films under his belt without Madea and is releasing new projects. Now he runs an empire, and he's known for creating opportunities for actors in need. But some argue his projects play into stereotypes or are flat out not that good. So, is he currently the best?

Actor Geoffrey Owens, who is known for his role on "The Cosby Show," was in between acting gigs before Tyler Perry offered him a job on one of his popular shows. Owens was recently in the news after a critic took a snapshot of him working at a Trader Joe's in New Jersey. According to Newsweek, Perry tweeted this to the veteran actor:

“I’m about to start shootings OWN’s number one drama next week! Come join us!!! I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs. The measure of a true artist,” Perry wrote on Twitter.

But everyone is not a Perry fan. Some say he feeds into black stereotypes, especially with his most popular character Madea, who many characterized as a loud criminal. Complex's Michael Arceneaux wrote about all the things Perry consistently gets wrong:

After many a church woman threw shade over Kimberly K's casting in Temptation, Tyler Perry wrote: "Because I believe that my films speak from the inside out, why wouldn't Kim Kardashian be invited into a film about Faith, Forgiveness and the healing power of God. What is wrong with that?"
