I got it taped from IFC, but I heard the DVD has more interviews. I’d sure like to see them someday.

watched it last night here blockbuster sent me the wrong disc they sent me the sleeve for BaadAsssss Cinema: A Bold Look at '70s Blaxploitation but they sent me the disc for Baaaadassss the movie about how melvin van peeble made sweet sweetbacks baddasss song i was disapointed they sent me the wrong disc they are send me the right one now but baddasss was really good any one ever see it.

Baadassss was one of the best movies of the year, so no big loss. :slight_smile:

Sweet Sweetbacks Badass Song was one of the worst movies I ever saw and certainly the worst Blaxploitation movie I ever saw. And I fuckin love Blaxploitation.

Yup, like banging the chick in front of the camera for a scene in the movie, catching gonorrhea, and then asking money from the directors guild because of it. Haha, i would have never given that guy money, but maybe they were afraid that if they wont, hes gonna sue them for being racist next.

It certainly was a waste of my fucking time.

C’mon guys. Check out Joe Bob’s Drive-In totals:



14 breasts

5 dead bodies

1 dead dog

1 dead lizard

2 sex parties with 1 appearance by a fairy godmother

3 cases of police brutality

1 cop car explosion

Death by handcuffs

Death by poolstick

Multiple love-making. Multiple foot-chases.

Gratuitous theme music. Gratiuitous crappy photography.



And watch out folks, because:









Has anyone seen Trouble man? if so is it any good?

Eh, it’s aiight. Despite a good performance by Robert Hooks playing (The Original) “Mr. T” and a Marvin Gaye soundtrack, I thought it was a little slow and lackluster. Better than Black Gunn at least.

Blaxploitation is the worst kind of cinema, except for the Jack Hill movies. He’s like the Orson Welles of this genre. Jackie Brown was also very good.

Booooo



And Jackie Brown ain’t a blaxpo to me.



Plus, if you liked Jack Hill’s work in the genre, you should check out Arthur Marks stuff (Bucktown,Detroit 9000,J.D.'s Revenge)
