There was a movie on the Jackson Family and some one mentioned Ray Charles. We might get one of Whitney Houston. I wonder when there will be big screen movies of non-musician people though...


We had Malcolm X by Spike Lee. That was a pretty big deal. As the studio only gave him enough for like two hours so then Lee went to other Black people and got to film it as long as he wanted.


Where would we be without Spike?

I don't know enough about his early life, but a movie about someone as famous as him seems a little unecessary.

Is the Malcolm X movie any good? I've been debating for awhile whether or not to watch it or not.

Its a little long and it does kind of drag till he goes to Jail and meets up with the Nation of Islam. Then it just takes off and before you know it, it's over. The ending is pretty graphic though and for me at least caused me to cry a lot. Also its scary how Denzel does look a lot like him so it's almost like you really are watching Malcolm X for real so yeah when the ending happens you actually feel like you are watching someone being murder right in front of you. Really powerful stuff. I highly recommend the movie

Hmm well even without Spike we had other Black filmmakers before like back in the 70's and maybe of the Black actors go into directing or producing like Will Smith he actually produce a little know Asian flick called Saving face. So yeah I have mad respect for Will Smith for that. That said without Spike we wouldn't had Boyz in the hood though since John was directly influences by Spike.

First off I would just like to thank you for having decent threads in this forum. I have looked at all of yours and they are actually on subjects worth talking about, but sadly many are focused on "There should or shouldn't be a Black History Month!" or "White History Month" mumbo jumbo. I'm sorry, but Black History Month will be around to stay and you might as well embrace it and have real conversations about the many individuals who contributed to the celebration of African-Americans.

Anyways, onto your topic. I would love to see a film about Walter Dean Myers. I've only read one of his books, which was Fallen Angels and I found it to be amazing. I'm hoping one day that will be brought to film.

LMFAO no.
The obvious answer: Barack Obama. Let's see who else... Can't think of any, I'm sorry.


Thats amazing, I personally think Samuel L jackson should play himself. No one can act like such a legend. It's like when they say "The next M.J" Thats never going to happen. emotion_bigheart

Thank you so much for the small praise. Yes I do hope that one day someone makes a film about him. I think I have so far read about ten maybe twelve of his titles (mostly picture books). Fun fact his son is an illustrator so they often work together.
