Mo Better Blues - Wesley Snipes and Denzel Washington
James - I think you need to name another African American actor/actress from the movie. We need a ruling from the game show host - Lox. brosmile

Was "the woodsman" a Black movie? (Lox, I think we need a ruling from you)
LYDIA BAILEY (1952, 20th century Fox) WILLIAM MARSHALL of "Blacula" fame .This is one movie where the sub-plot is far superior to the main plot.Main Plot:white man goes to Haiti to find white girl they fall in love. SUB-PLOT:the Haitian Revolution is in full swing with William Marshall playing the part of "KING DICK" one of Toussaint L'Overtuer's generals.

Mahogany-- Billy Dee Williams and Diana Ross
"Miami Vice (2006)" with Jamie Fox as Tubbs (made Philip Michael Thomas's portrayal look like a little bitch) and Barry Shabaka Henley as Castillo (very poor choice in my opinion to play the part but he's a brother nonetheless).

~Boomerang. I liked the "world" that they existed in ---- was there even a white face in the movie ANYWhere? I don't think I can remember even seeing them during "street" scenes. Even the mailroom clerk (Chris Rock) was "up and coming". Black kids were getting positive reinforcement (from Halle Berry's character community work), and the Lady Eloise and Strang`e corporate accounts were all black. And then the obvious: comedy, ol'school element, the luv story, the situational irony (s) in the script. The whole thing from start to finish. Classy and entertaining all on its [black] own, and without being Blaxploitation. appl~

You can tell zodo is a young buck. Listen, zodo, the proper name of the movie is 'The Wiz'.
Hi, Cynthia2008. Welcome to AA.org.

To play the game, you have to mention a film with a black actor and one other black actor or director, then the next poster adds another film with the actor, and the next one, and so on...

You have Will Smith in "Hancock," so I'll add after that...

"Bad Boys II"--Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.
fro This is NOT a black movie per se....but! "In the Case of Benjamin Button" is an excellent movie which despicts the black woman in this film VERY favorably....including the black men- even though the period is during the Jim Crow era. I watched every second of it with excitement and huge interest. And yes..it was looooonnnng! Almost too long...except! That it is a great saga of human journey. This is the best I've seen in while. I recommend it. In fact, it is money well spent considering how much it costs nowadays to see a good movie. fro

I saw this movie last night and not only is it an excellent film, it is also thought provoking (imo).

And I agree that black folk were portrayed favorably...

considering the era. . .racism is not even addressed. But it works. tfro
fro Exactly Sista Fab. It is thought provoking. And have you thinking about how people are treated based on the external i.e. societal acceptance of appearance. And how we as humans have to TURNED that around if you are to better society in the future. I would say MORE but! I really want people to GO SEE this movie. And have a serious discussion about it later. All in alltfro Brad better get that academy award! It is sooooo deserving. fro
fro Brotha Huey....are you serious? I thought that movie was written poorly. And expected Will to give an outstanding performance. Now, the theme of the movie was excellent but somehow for me Will could not execute it in a way where it was convincing. But! To be fair, I'm gonna watch it again. Cuz if you give it a thumb's up....maybe I missed somethin' Confused fro

It's been a LONG time since I shed a tear at a movie!! I really enjoyed this one and had to actually sit there and compose myself as the credits rolled before I could leave.

Wow. I must check it out then (for sure). I've heard from different people that the storyline is very moving.

Higher Learning and Rosewood. John Singleton is so under-rated. I think Rosewood was one of the greatest movies of all time.  The story of Sonny Carson was also a great movie, can't remember who directed it. 

 

My apologies.... I admit, I didn't read the directions. Got caught up in all the memories of great black movies.
