There are a number of Jamaican movies. I buy them ever so often in African movie shops. Most of them are comedies- some are recorded stage plays and not really movies at all. Then you have the shoot em up movies- there are always a handful of those. I bought a duppy movie last month that was hilarious but VERY poorly made. I guess the budget isn't really there for a large number of quality movies.

I recently saw a short film called Countryman that was good but had a white Westerner as one of the main characters.

Smile Orange and The Harder They Come are great classics. Well made and good stories.
And there is an old (80s) film about the start of dancehall- Rockers, I think. Also set in the tourism backdrop but whatever.

This is my favorite new (newer) Jamaican film.:drinks:

1974 - TNT
Bim was one of Trinidad and Tobago's first feature films. It was written to be a West Indian answer to the Godfather. The film takes place in the 1950's, just prior to Trinidad and Tobago's independence from England in 1962. The film follows the violent life of a young man named Bim, who's life experiences wind through petty crime all the way to political office. The film explores the political life of Trinidad and Tobago, including the development towards independence, the process of British de-colonization, relations between African and Indian descendants, and the rise of labor unions. The film is quite violent and brutal, but the depictions of such seem necessary to the plot. Initially, the film was banned in Trinidad and Tobago. It is an extremely rare film, but worth locating if possible.

I've never seen too many islands movies either. All I ever knew were Haitian and African movies. I think I saw a trailer for a Jamaican one here a while back though. You guys should post trailers.

Here's a trailer to a sequel of a popular Haitian film.

I have a copy of "I love you Anne." I believe it helped spark the twoubadou music movement. i never knew that a sequel existed. i also have Barikad, a great movie.

Today, everyone likes to watch a good movie or TV series that will brighten up the evening. And how for me to improve as much as possible such an evening you need to choose a good provider. You can find out the sprint phone number and find out the pros of this company that specializes in telecommunications. You can find out the pros and cons.
