Black Teen Movies

"I'm meeting with different studios, and they're all turning me down. One executive said, 'Look. There's two things that nobody wants to see: black movies, and teen movies. You have a black teen movie. No one wants to see that.'

Audiences agreed. House Party went on to earn $26 million on a budget of $2.5 million, becoming one of the most profitable films of the year and boosting the profile of New Line Cinema, not to mention costars like Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell (who'd later reunited in Hudlin's follow-up Boomerang before costarring on the sitcom favorite Martin). It found an even wider audience on home video, and is credited with broadening on-screen portrayals of African American teens, helping usher hip-hop into the mainstream, and successfully endorsing the practice of safe sex thanks to its iconic broken condom scene.

Straight Out of Brooklyn is a 1991 independent film directed by Matty Rich in his directorial debut. The film is a story about Dennis (played by Larry Gilliard Jr.), an African-American teen living in a housing project with his sister, mother and abusive, alcoholic father. Fed up with his family's seemingly hopeless future, he plans with his friends to rob a drug dealer.

Roger Ebert called Straight Out of Brooklyn "a strong, good film": "It all adds up to a convincing portrait of a big city black teen-ager who feels that if he does not take some sort of conclusive action, life will clamp him into poverty and discouragement."[4]

Rankin said he calmly approached Chapman to discuss the shoplifting accusation and was preparing to handcuff him when the teen refused to comply with his orders and a struggle ensued. He said he used his stun gun on him, but Chapman knocked it away and both men then faced each other from a short distance.

AOL Black Voices columnist Mark Anthony Neal draws a comparison between the challenges of the young black teens in 1960 who became known as "The Greensboro Four" to those of the so-called "hip-hop generation" of today.

The Unofficial Handbook of the Marvel Universe provides good summaries of Cloak and Dagger's origins. Tyrone Johnson is a poor black teen from South Boston and Tandy Bowen is an upper class white girl. A criminal drug supplier experimented on the two runaways, unleashing their latent mutant powers. Tyrone became Cloak, "a living gateway to a place known as the Dark Dimension. This left his body virtually intangible and surrounded in a billowing darkness which he kept under his signature cloak. ... By allowing darkness out of the dimension, Johnson could flood an area with its impenetrable darkness. By allowing objects and others into the dimension, Johnson could trap them inside or teleport them and himself across vast distances. Unfortunately, the dimension housed a malevolent entity whose 'hunger' for human souls compelled Johnson to seek out living beings and swallow them in his darkness, where they would be 'devoured' by visions of their deepest fears. This hunger could be offset by Bowen's powers of 'living light'. ... Calling themselves Cloak and Dagger, the two decided to use their powers to save other children from being harmed by drug dealers and other criminals. They soon took refuge in the Holy Ghost Catholic Church as their base of operations". I almost selected Cloak and Dagger for my recent Comic Book Movies Special Edition of The Stax Report so I found this news to be a pleasant surprise. Especially since I initially feared it might be about a remake of that Dabney Coleman-Henry Thomas movie instead.

Moral: Despite rampant drug use and boundary violations associated with variably competent psychotherapy a bunch of people who like movies (or making movies) can survive the suicides of their loved ones, in Hollywood at least. Reminds me of The Son's Room.
