In today’s post at the house of Harris I divulge my opinions on black people films, what with the latest in the long list of failures dropping this weekend.

    boyz n da hood> any other hip hop movie they made

  • purified

    tbh, can this really be considered a hip-hop movie or a movie with 2 hip-hop artists in it? I thought you were goin along the lines of filsm like GRODT or Notorious and ish like that

    @ Rio$

    Boyz n da hood was kinda wack, the acting was horrible

    Menace 2 society was better, Larenze Tate was scary as hell in dat joint and it had the better ending

  • robertTHEallen

    i agree wholeheartedly, even to the movies i enjoyed.

    on a related note, some latina had the nerve to doubt my intellignece because i didnt “understaand the good stories” aka nignorant bullshit in tyler perry movies. needless to say i couldnt even argue back as theres no way someone that dumb could comprehend syllogism

  • stanonymous

    All of the hood flicks with Camron Giles are goat. Paid in Full and Killa Season. Do your homework

  • 88

  • MelancholyGypsy!

    meka, you pretentious, self-righteous fuck, stop attempting to use the word “quasi” in every post. jesus fuck…

  • carbyne

    1. Theres no reason to hate on Tyler Perry
    2. No matter what ANYBODY says, and no matter how bad the acting was
    Boys in the Hood was classic

    Honestly, black film hasn’t seen a great number of films in the past decade that could qualify as “good”, hip hop inspired or otherwise. You have the true cult classic’s of the mid to early 90’s, but since 2000, the plots have been put together with nail glue and thumbtacks. The black film genre just can’t seem to get funded if the script has any potential to have a positive impact because typically those films don’t produce large box office results UNLESS a rapper ia attached. At the end of the day, much like record companies, studios want that fast COON cash and will continue to produce the shit Aquaneesha and Ray Ray gonna pile into the theatre for and talk on their cell phones for 2/3’s of the feature.

    This is an area of infinite debate. The problem is the business of filmmaking. Bust peeps above have already mentioned that so I won’t go there again. Scripts for good black movies do exist, they just don’t get made because they’re not commercial enough. But I said I wouldn’t get into that so I digress. We just have to make our movies independently and hopefully they’ll have enough commercial legs to crossover so that they can actually make it into the theaters. The problem is money and distribution but this is changing due to new filmmaking tools and the internet. A democratization of the film industry is in process and it’s accelerating. The next decade will be interesting. Stay tuned!
