Celebrate Black History Month with Fox Home Entertainment
As Black History Month ends this week, blackfilm.com and
Fox Home Entertainment are offering to give out some films
to help remember and relive some of the finest acting brought
to the big screen.
Halftime is party time in this high-stepping, high-energy
comedy that "shakes, rattles and rolls the house" (Washington
Post) with a pulsating hip-hop soundtrack and electrifying
dance moves. Nick Cannon (Men in Black II,
TV's "The Nick Cannon Show") stars as Devon Miles, a gifted
street drummer who snares the top spot in a Southern university
marching band. But when his hotshot attitude gets a lukewarm reception from
the school's straight-laced band leader (Orlando Jones), Devon
quickly discovers that it takes more than talent to make it
on the drumline.
Denzel Washington makes his triumphant directorial debut and Derek Luke
shines in his first
big-screen role in “one of the most touching, heartwarming
films of the year.”(Jeffrey
Lyons, WNBC-TV).Inspired by the true
life experiences of its title character, Antwone
Fisher tells the dramatic story of a troubled sailor (Luke)
who is ordered to see a naval psychiatrist (Washington) about
his volatile temper.Little does he
know that his first step into the doctor’s office will
lead him on a remarkable emotional journey to confront his
painful past – and connect with the family he never
Our Friend Martin
For Kids...A Message For Everyone.What begins as a routine project for a sixth-grade
class turns into a time-traveling adventure they’ll never
forget! Historic footage and colorful animation come together
in this inspiring film about civil rights leader Martin Luther
King, Jr.Featuring an all-star voice
cast, Our Friend, Martin is a fun, new way for your family to share Dr. King’s
inspiring message of hope and courage which changed the course
of our nation’s history.
Carmen Jones, an army soldier named Joe (Harry
Belafonte) falls in love with Carmen
(Dorothy Dandridge), a beautiful and seductive factory worker. As in the classic opera, Carmen makes Joe forget about his
former true love, Cindy Lou (Olga James).
The lovers are soon forced to flee the city when Joe
kills his sergeant during a fight.
Carroll was nominated for both an OscarĈ and a Golden GlobeĈ
award for her gripping portrayal as the indomitable Claudine
in this heartwarming comedy.While
struggling to support herself and her six children in Harlem
by working as a maid for a wealthy family, Claudine (Carroll)
meets a charming garbage man, Roop (James Earl Jones). But although Roop is smitten with the lovely single mother,
his own life trials make him slow to respond to her invitation
to a lifetime of love.The touching
story of Claudine will inspire smiles and
tears in viewers of all ages.
(Taye Diggs), a hip hop A&R executive at a New
York record label and Sidney (Sanaa
Lathan), a magazine editor have known each other since they
were kids.They can attribute their
friendship and the launch of their careers to the moment in
their childhood when they discovered hip-hop on a
New York street
corner.Now 15 years later, they are
brought back together.As they lay
down the tracks toward their futures, hip-hop isn't the only
thing that keeps them coming back to that moment on the corner.
Waiting to Exhale
the span of a single year, Savannah (Whitney Houston), Bernadine
Robin (Lela Rochon) and Gloria (Loretta Devine) weather triumph
and revenge, sons and mothers,
ex-husbands and new lovers, under a powerful umbrella of camaraderie. Their lovelorn quests are filled with passion, disappointment,
revelation and just enough sassy friendship to see them through.
Because these women know what they want is near to
impossible: a man with a sense of humor and a sense of purpose;
a man who is tender, strong and confident without being wimpy,
rude and arrogant.
Other film titles include Big Momma's
House, Like Mike, Black Knight, Dr. Dolittle, Dr. Dolittle 2, The
Five Heartbeats, Like Mike, Men of Honor, How Stella Got Her Groove
Back, Light It Up, Soul Food, & Sugar Hill.
