Watch Watch Watch Just Remember to Detox

Posted by bwmm on January 26, 2010

For a few weeks I’ve been watching no/low budget African American movies to low budget scifi. Many aren’t great. The point though is to see what many have done with the no budgets and low budgets they have been given. I’ve also been watching no/low budget movies that not geared to AAs as well. I watched a movie all though low budget to Hollywood standards and maybe not so for independents french action film District 13 or Banlieue 13 €12mill or around 17mill USD. I keep a list of movies (I make it myself) of movies and their budgets. Now I will say that after watching crap movies (not all are and many aren’t that loveable fun cheesy campy fun either)you have to seriously detox yourself. I’m serious ya’ll! Watching a crap movie makes you want to ring your neck and get your tortured now derranged ghost to heat the oven and stick your head in Some of these movies are like dead Armadillo. They stink. If you don’t believe me watch Then there are the ones that are good even though the production values don’t look topnotch. There are also movies like Facing the Giants, Monsoon Wedding (shot in India) and many other no/low budget movies that you don’t feel like you are watching a movie that has a no/low budget.

boy why can’t we make movies like this. It might not be some big Hollywood romance drama, but It’s still one of my faves.

I would also say if you get a chance watch movies from Korea, Japan etc. especially the love stories (I many are too Also watch movies that are more outside of the commericial arena.

And Remember that bfilm just means budget film it doesn’t mean bad.

Black Women and WM in Movies in Predominately Black Settings

Posted by bwmm on August 9, 2009 The design of the website is pleasing to the eye. The colors are eye catching and gain the attention of the viewer. Searching through the website is as easy as turning on the television. The website is very well put together with contact information being one of the first things you see as well as the 5 months free package.

Blog Television has a partnership with direct TV. The 5 months free premiere package comes with 265+ channels free when you get NFL Sunday Ticket for only $59.99/month for 5 months. There are also other good packages to choose from that might interest the viewer or the family. This way the viewer can choose a package that fits them. There are such a wide variety of channels for different interests. Viewers will be able to watch shows, movies and countless other programs that they would other wise not be able to see if they didn’t have Direct TV. Got to for more information.

————————————————————————————- and Marshana my reply about Marshana on the Bachelor

“But anyways has anyone noticed that movies with white men and other non-black men (just added that) going to the bahamas, Africa etc for visiting or living there always seem to be with white women even though the majority is black or other non-bw/poc women. Take case in point a white man lives in Jamaica or the carribean or something ( I know other races are there, but if the movies has the man surrounded with nothing, but black people then what gives?) Case in point The Paradise Virus yes corney diease is going to kill everyone if we don’t find a cure fast b-film, but still. First you have Lorenzo Lamas who lives in a country filled with it appears majority of black people yet he doesn’t have a black wife, girlfriend nothing. Then you have Ralf Moeller (the man coming out of that water was like woa!!!! hmmm) anyways the dudes been there like forever. Now I know he was a man of g, (can’t remember if he was a priest), but why not have a black wife/ biracial family if he is not a priest. (And believe me that would have made by day(besides T. J. Storm he was the main reason I watched Lets not forget that Tarzan the 1996 Joe Lara series ( yeah I know Tarzan, hey I was a kid and the Tarzan and the brotha on the show were two hot guys)anyways there no way that dude spent all those years around sistahs (whom he mostly I presume saw all of his life) and hooks up with Jane.

I’ve noticed in these movies/tv shows that the man somehow ends up with a ww (nothing against them), but if a dude ended up in Ireland etc. he would be with an Irish woman like that movie Irish Jam with Eddie Griffin, Hill Harper movie The Nephew , or if he was in Asia and Asian woman Bollywood Hero with Chris Kattan, Mexico etc., as well as countless other movies whether they are straight to video, small screen or big well as countless other movies whether they are straight to video, small screen or big screen. Yet when the man is in an environment filled with a majority of or nothing but black people he doesn’t seem to have any romance going on with the bw there. Now you can’t say this about Hotel Rwanda because there was Joaquin Phoenix and the African Girl that he had to leave and probably a lot of other movies. But from what I’ve seen it’s mostly ww/wm in a mostly black enviroment getting together.”

I also made a similar comment on another blog (can’t remember which blog) anyways I added that the woman that the guy ends up with in the movies are the zany, spunky, sparky, hippy chick, teacher/missionary/adventurer that comes in to save all the little ghetto children, find the lost treasure of whatever and tells the guy essentially how much dudes are loosers or are chauvanist etc. This also applies to the hippy chick, spunky, zany teacher who or even sweet angelical teacher who goes in to teach and save all the little downtrodden African children (believe me Africans notice this image of themselves as a people in the media)

On my new add with movies like Best of the Best is because how the movie started off you would have expected to see more interaction with the black community and possibly having to working with them. For anyone who hasn’t seen it watch it and see what I mean.

There are Hollywood or A list films that do this mos def. but I think it’s definately sad state when no budget/low budget movies do this. It’s sad that even in the indie world you can’t show a bw/non bm romance.
