Thank you Rod for giving a name to this genre - I always find myself in the movie theater with my popcorn n drink without shame talking to the characters in these movies like they can hear me.
When you were talking about Black Executive Fan Fiction (BEFF), I realized that most of the ones I’d seen were with Idris Elba. “No Good Deed” and “Obsessed”. So, I really just like Idris Elba movies. And does “Trois” count? Y’all remember that movie? With the original go to light skinned, light eyed actor Gary Dourdan? Freddie’s boyfriend on A Different World? Lol. I only see BEFF when an actor I really like is in one. Or I’m watching it with a group of friends, which is how I saw “Trois”.
I love these movies! My favorite was Obsessed as well. On another note, regarding men who expect women to be their everything, I've been that woman who they expected to fix all their shit (that was created before me) while at the same time needing to keep it all together and fix my own shit as well. And by my late 20's I was like FUCK THAT. I'm now 31 and have been single ever since, and I am starting to enjoying it.
Aww man! You spoiled the plot to all the movies I was never gonna watch ahahaha. I’m dying at the accuracy of the troupes of Black Exec Fan Fic genre. Boomerang might have kicked it off. Long live Strange!
Chile, I love these movies. I need to watch more!! I still need to watch Acrimony so, I too, want to figure out how the FUCK Taraji got on that boat....
I like Black Executive Fan Fiction movies. Y'all are unsung heroes for coining this genre. One of my favorites is Obsessed. Who knew what Idris Elba was doing for work?
