Week of Feb 22nd thru Mar 1st

Halle, Halle, Halle

It appears that Halle Berry's performance in Monster's Ball is still the hot-topic at parties, water coolers and shopping malls. In the African-American community, her sex scenes with Billy Bob Thornton have been hard to swallow. The blackfilm.com crew wants to know what you think about her performance. Did you think it was over the top? Are you upset that she gets busy with someone named Billy Bob? E-mail your friends and family and tell them to join the blackfilm.com family. We want everyone's thoughts and opinions on this matter. The blackfilm.com crew supports Halle Berry and we are wishing the best for her in this years Oscar race. But we are also very much concerned and interested in what you think about the choices our actors and actresses make when accepting a role. E-mail your thoughts to mailto:info@blackfilm.com and we will publish your opinions for the world to see. Please include your name and city if you want your thoughts published.

New this week…Wilson Morales says John Q. could have been much more and Scott Southard explains why A Beautiful Mind is a beautiful exaggeration.

I love a good buddy picture. Growing up, I spent many a Sunday afternoon enraptured by the Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis flicks and, in a pinch, one of those Bing Crosby/Bob Hope road pics are a great way to pass a couple of hours.

Queen of the Damned
With “Romeo Must Die” a success, her singing voice in “Anastasia”, and her future appearances in Matrix 2 & 3, Aaliyah’s film career was definitely on the rise.

John Q
After receiving great acclaim for his work in “Training Day”, followed by an Oscar nomination for that role, one would think that everything Denzel does now is golden. Sadly, that is not the case.

Latest Addition:
  
Give The Man the Statue Now!
With less than a month to go before the Oscars, it appears that Denzel is building a little steam and just might walk away with a prize that has escaped the grasp of black men since Sidney Poitier walked away with the award some 40 years ago.
