The Prequel

So here we are once again with another MLK weekend. Some opted for inauguration some for here, but whatever you chose I'm sure you'll have an very interesting experience. This is my second MLK ATL weekend, but this time I'm not visiting so it'll be a little different. Tonight Sebastian and I plan on going to Wetbar instead of Bulldog because of the frigid temperatures. I don't feel like gettin' caught up in the Minnesota like weather standin in a ridiculous line. I'll be sure to update you guys on this weekend's endeavors. Hopefully I'll keep my clothes on all weekend.......
P.S. Speak if you see me, I'm nice I promise!

When Will Black Film Get it's Groove Back?

Yesterday was a very slow day for me. I just mainly chilled, cleaned up a little, and watched How Stella Got Her Groove Back on BET. I honestly forgot how good of a movie that was. Sure it wasn't SAG award worthy but it's just one of those classic black films. While I was watching I couldn't help but to wonder what exactly happenned to black film? I'm not talking about the onslaught of Tyler Perry Madea Tom Foolery that has been the only skewed representation of African American Culture, I mean I'm not hating on Tyler Perry because I can definately appreciate his point of view. I just would like to see a black film without it having a obvious christian subtext EVERY SINGLE TIME. What happenned to movies like Love Jones, Brown Sugar, or Love & Basketball. It was those movies that had those story lines that u could curl up in a thick down comforter with your best friend, by yourself, or that special someone. Those Sensual sex scenes that made you sweat and squirm just enough to look at your phone with thoughts of callin some dude you know that u shouldn't be callin. Those bomb soundtracks that u had to have.

Why have these movies ceased to exist? Bootlegging, Racism in Hollywood, Tyler Perry Monopoly (my personal favorite conspiracy theory)?

So what are your favorite films of the 90s/early millenium? Below is a clip of that oh so sexy love scene from Jason's Lyric.....Ahh memories.
