Lately I haven't really noticed any good Black movies coming out in to theater or at least any with strong Black leads. Thankfully Tyler Perry seems to be coming out with at least one or two movies a year. But, lately I have become a little tired of Tyler although his work is good its starting to get a little repetitive. Take it from a person thats been watching his plays since she was 14 years old. I was actually looking forward to taking my daughter to see the, "Princess Frog" but she turns into a frog for the whole movie that ruined it for me. Then this month, "Black Dynamite" starring Michael Jai White comes out and I don't have any really expectations for it but I still want to see it. But my favorite Black movies that I can think of right now are:

-Glory
-Color Purple (of course)
-The Five Heartbeats
-Do The Right Thing
-Don't be a Menace While..(Hilarious)
-Rosewood (Sad)
-Men of Honor
-Man on Fire
-Crooklyn
-Friday(s)
-The Pursuit of Happyness (Sad)
-American Gangster
-Hollywood Shuffle(Hilarious)

Those are the only ones I can really think think about off the top of my head right now.

I forgot about "Poetic Justice" I used to be a huge Janet Jackson fan when I was younger and Tupac. I pretty sure he would have done more movies if he was still alive.

I agree with every single movie and I ain't going to lie I have seen every single one. "The Brothers" was really good I can't believe I forgot about that one. Oh how about "Idlewild" it was a little out there but I loved it.

The movie your talking about is called "A Day in the life". I have never seen it or heard of it and I can't say I know who Sticky Fingaz is. But I am open minded so I will check it out the next time I am on Netflix.

No problem, you also helped me to remember some movies.

I remember first seeing that movie as a little girl. There's some movies I couldn't remember, too many!
