Dreamgirls opens to the American Public next week. Since its the 'black movie' of the year, the question I'm asking is when is it going to be showing in the UK? Dreamgirls features Eddie Murphy (Babyfather for Scary Spice?), Jennifer Hudson (American idol), Beyonce (she needs no introduction right?) and Jamie Foxx. (On a quick aside while typing this my brother looked over my shoulder and asked me what constitutes a 'black movie'? since the guy who directed Dreamgirls is a white guy. Is it a film with a couple of black characters in the leading roles? ie was Bad Boys - Martin Lawrence & Will Smith - a black movie? Even my little brother just said 'hell no' with some venom. Or a film with lots of black characters? Showing black culture - Boys in the hood? Or does it need to be set in Africa? I guess we would know it when we see it right? The Best Man anyone? Anyway I digress...)

Formerly a broadway musical with the same name, Dreamgirls is loosely based on the story of Diana Ross and the Supremes and it is directed by Bill Condon, the dude who the screenplay for Chicago. Its already tipped to feature heavily in the Oscars next year (yes high praise indeed) and is expected to make Jennifer Hudson hot property in Hollywood (she really deserves it after she was robbed of the chance to get to the AI finals a few years back.

Anyway guys if you are looking for a movie to go see after Xmas...

Good question little brother. I don't know what constitutes as black anymore either.

I understand that the debate over whether a white guy is qualified to do a 'black movie' is one of the things that started the beef btw Spike and Tarantino . Even a few of the famous blaxploitation movies were done by white guys.

Fortunately Spike no longer has to fly the flag alone, now there is John Singleton (Poetic Justice), Bill Duke, Doug McHenry, Carl Franklin, Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), F. Gary Gray (the Italian Job), Keenen Ivory Wayans (White Chicks), Forest Whitaker (Waiting to Exhale), Mario Van Peebles (Panther) even Denzel and Morgan Freeman have started to direct!
