This is the month where Black movies produced by politicians and rejects from the Dollar Store management program flood the market. I just even saw the preview of a race-based remake of Cheaper by the Dozen, so I am going to share my choice for this month so you can checkmark the “I did my part for Racial Justice!” box.
Besides the fantastic film “In the Heat of the Night” with Sydney Poitier and Rod Steiger (which should be in your library anyway), I would recommend to you “A Soldier’s Story.”
Besides the top-notch script, acting, directing, etc. the music is amazing which is to be expected with Herbie Hancock and Edward Bland are in charge and Ms. Patty LaBelle sings us a song.
Now we love action films, and nobody can do Black Action like Wesley Snipes. But rather than Blade or Passenger 57, I have the guilty pleasure to ask you to consider Drop Zone.
