Here's a "Vdare.com" piece on this business...
Can someone even name one half way decent black movie?
Leonard Part 6
How many do you want again?
No, I think you prove MY point enuff, Thanks.
What about Malcolm X? That was an excellent, whether or not you agree with his beliefs, the movie itself was excellent.
Or Undercover Brotha was great, if you like blaxploitation movies :
I like racial movies, but Malcolm X was one of the most boring movies of ALL time, it also bombed at the box office.
So it's Shaft, Blade, Leonard 6, Malcom X and Undercover brother.
I rest my case.
Some would argue it's because black film makers can't secure enough investments to keep a high production value.
Fwiw, The Nutty Professor was good...was that a 'black' film? How about that one where Eddie Murphy is a player, and tries to get hot chicks, but always leaves them because they have ugly feet? Boomerang? hmmm..
When I say "black" film, the most important part is that the film was written by a black person.
So the problem is there are no/few 'good' black screen writers?
Is this the part where Big D lures us into saying "But all the hollywood types are Jews who keep the black man out" just so he can call us racist?
This is a really stupid point Big-D.
The fact is Hollywood, like any large power structure IS a good-old-boy's club and new rising stars are few and far between unless they succumb to the political games.
As such, how many spirited young blacks are going to write something and subject themselves?
The movies I have presented show how the good-old-boys didn't exactly get their way, yet money was made.
You ask if there IS ONE.
I gave you 3. Take a look at the stars and their biographies.
You are way outta your league.....AGAIN.
