I will name a Black Film and a Black star who appeared in the movie and the person who responds must name a new Black Film with that star, plus another.

Jim, MBM is right! We are naming Black movies and Black actors. That was my mistake, I did not make that clear. Smile But Man on Fire was the shizzle! lol
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.

You were suppose to name a movie with either lela rochon or vivicia a. fox in it plus another black actor in the film with them (because i posted that before you) .
~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~
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.
