Black History Month: February 2016 in Films

So I had a pretty hectic month and thus I definitely did not keep up the pace of one film a day (this year is probably going to continue down that path). Before I get into the films I watched this month, I have some big news! This Friday, March 4th, is going to be my last day at Rotten Tomatoes! I have taken a job with Turner Classic Movies aka TCM aka the greatest thing to ever happen to movies! This means I will be relocating from Los Angeles to Atlanta. This also means things are going to be really, really hectic in March (and maybe April!) and thus I am going on a bit of a hiatus after this post. What that means: no Movie Quote of the Day until I get settled. This could mean all of March, it could mean into April, it could mean less. I’m really not sure. I will, however, do a wrap-up post for March, although it may only be a handful of films. That said, I did watch several great films in February, and as always you can see the full list after the cut!

Movie Quote of the Day – Idlewild, 2006 (dir. Bryan Barber)


Angel Davenport: You know, Percival, you got real talent. I don’t know why you want to waste it in a silly little town like Idlewild. Don’t you want to see the bright lights? I mean, there’s a whole movement going on in Harlem and you’re down here watching the seasons pass by. I’m waiting on a telegram from Chicago as we speak. Then I’m gonna hop on over to New York City. Honey, I am going to travel the world! What about you, huh? What are you doing working in a stiff place like this?
