1950's? Stormy Weather.
1990's Beloved,Color purple,Purple rain,and Bamboozled.
2007 Tyler Perry movies

Stormy Weather:This was a great film that showed us some of the best performances by Classic African Americans.When i watch this i always think to myself "Wow! Look at us,how proud and talented we were, the men were gentleman and the woman were ladies,so graceful,so polished so natural.Nobody can top the dancing even today.
Beloved: An abstract,historical film on Starring Oprah who made a decision to either kill her young or have them sold to a plantation owner.
Color Purple: I love seeing movies with Black folks living in the country.
Bamboozled:One of the most controversy Black films of the century.Must see.

Tyler perry:Most Black movies i watch i don't enjoy and leave the theater feeling insulted somehow.Thank you Tyler Perry for producing enjoyable yet meaningful movies that are so real and healing for Black people.There are more but that's it for now.

Don't forget COFFY! That was the baddest film about the baddest chick in the 70's! I loved the girl fight scene. It had a message too.

Follow Me Home is very hard to find anywhere even tho Alfre Woodard is in it and it got rave reviews.
I thought X was Spike's best effort and Denzel was superb.
A lot of people don't like
ghetto"movies and want more Buppie type romances.I am in the middle.Make more of BOTH types,but put some quality of production in them and stop relying on cliches.
