Black-themed as in, movies that feature a predominant black cast, and or is based in a black neighbourhood, or about black people, or black lifestyle, however, whichever. Post on!
One of my favourite all African-American themed movies would be "Deliver us from Eva".
Well, it met most of your criteria - predominantly black cast, in a black neighborhood, and about black people. 'Course, most of them are dead, but you can't have everything...
What is wrong with fucking bushmen anyway?
Or is it a sin to fuck bushmen?
Nothing wrong with them, Mark. I love those little fuckers. They're just naked and live in the desert, they dont get to see white people often. Whereas I do, as that ryanket insinuated. Btw, ever saw that movie, The Gods Must Be Crazy - by far my favorite native movie!
As you say - a classic - especially as I am an "enlightened" English man. Sometimes I cringe at the things we have done. You know we invented the concentration camp? In Africa - the Boer war.
Never met a real bushman though.
Yes I know, Mark. I dont let it influence my perception of white people, though.
Well, you should. Nothing like learning from history to prevent repeating the mistake.
yeah, i know what you mean. I know plenty nice people, and sometimes I get this vibe that they think I'm gonna swallow them up if they aren't nice to me. Its amusing somehow. Some white people feel they black people niceness. Its ok, but it shouldn't be a black thing. However, it'll probably always be. White people will always remember what their ancestors did. And black people will always remember what their ancestors suffered. Its the bitter cycle.
You also have to remember that there were no shortage of black people prepared to sell their cousins into slavery.
More a human nature/tribal thing than a black/white thing. I come from the British tribe. Personally, I am disgusted with all of us and resort to humor to prevent myself from shooting some one.
it's because of assholes like those that made some white ppl look like haters. Black ppl are cool...
Pls dont use that 'I love black people' line...lol. Just messing with ya.
*Diary Of A Mad Black Woman by Tyler Perry
*Why Did I Get Married

oops I also enjoyed "Soul Food and " Are We There Yet?"
For Me It Has 2 Be White Chicks! IL That FIlm
I know - it's not very 'black themed' as you put it. But it is very dark.
Even if I had one, I would have keep my mouth shut, out of the fear of being called a racist
Oh go on Misha. Could be worse.
You could have Mr Knowles calling you a religionist
Pray tell me frog, how does being called a religionist better than being called a racist?
I'm Gonna Get You Sucka
I don't really have a favourite "black movie" as I object to the terminology a little.... I would certainly never call a movie a "white movie" because there are a majority of white actors in it.
But my favourite black actor is Morgan Freeman, and my favourite Morgan Freeman movie is The Shawshank Redemption; which has a predominently white cast.
Chucky 8 & His M8.. Filmed in the Kuwait Oilwells.
................... The Film was a real gusher!
Apparently so... there is clearly no such thing as multi-culturalism in society and we all go to secret 'black clubs' and 'white clubs'.
He is from Nigeria in fairness, where he probably very rarely sees a white person. I suggest that he takes a trip to New York if he wants to see the ultimate multi cultural society.
I absolutely adored the movie "Corrina, Corrina" starring Whoopi Goldberg and Ray Liotta. It was all about a black woman and a white man falling in love with each other in the 50's and how it was perceived by society at the time. It was both written and directed by Jessie Nelson.
I love comedies, so I guess Friday would be my absolute favorite. There is also Hollywood Shuffle and Don't Be a Menace While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. I could watch these movies everyday.
Mine are Ethiopians then, I just melt at the sight of an Ethiopian girl.
The Color Purple...Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Stephen Spielberg. About African Americans in the 1900's, what they had to go through and what they had to endure, and the there triumph in the end. A very inspirational movie. favorite Drama movie
My favorite African American comedy/drama would have to be diary of a mad black woman. Tyler Perry
Okay, I'll bite, sans social/political commentary.
I used to skip class to go watch Boyz in the Hood when I was in Junior High School. I loved that movie and I do believe it fits your criteria. The parody of it (and other 'gangsta' movies),"Don't Be A Menace.." which Davina mentioned, is damn hilarious too!
I forgot about Boyz in the Hood. Bad Boys is good too, and I Think I Love My Wife. Where I come from, these are just considered comedies. Everyone watches all kinds of movies.
Look Who's Coming For Dinner...cracks me up everytime....ppl should be more open and accepting...(but don't sacriice morals and beliefs either)

Can you believe that piece of crap? Like I'm a fucking bushman of the Kalahari! Practically half of my real friends are white people for pete's sake! I live in the most populous nation in Africa, to even think that! How dumb can a person possibly be? And to think this guy had the balls to call me stupid sometime...well, how clear are we on who's stupid now.
You seem to be the only racist around. So, you are not a fucking bushmen, right? You are full of crap man, go get some lemon cleansing.
I should open a shop and sell troll food.
Norbit, laughed so much, Loved it
Welcome home Roscoe Jenkins (so funny, Martin Lawrence is awesome)

"Birth of a Nation" sort of had a black theme.....

What's your favourite quote?It can be anything, and useful to you in any situation, for example if it cheers you up when you're feeling down, or if it motivates you to be more active. My favourite quote is "Every night I look up at the freckled sky and fall in love with the universe all over...

If you wanna know the truth, Religious movies are terribly boring. They really are. But there are some exceptions. Omen, the old one was a classic. Stigmata,just brilliant. Sin Eaters wasn't half bad too. RIP Heath Ledger. Don't even mention Da Vinci Code to me. Props to Tom Hanks and all. He never...
