|06.29.06||DVR|| finishing my double feature is Superfly with the awesome Curtis Mayfield soundtrack and lion-maned Ron O'Neal trying to get out the game despite the Man's best efforts. |
I don't know if it's because of the soundtrack, but this movie always seemed to me to be in the higher strata of blaxploitation cinema. Stuff like Shaft, Coffy, and The Mack were definitely the first titles I heard about even though for whatever reason I never got around to seeing this until now. It's actually a pretty good movie though... not unintentionally funny or ridiculous or any of that stuff... No eyebrowless supermen or evil Colonel Sanders here, just an urban story of a coke dealer trying to get by. Good stuff.
Next up in the midnight slot (even though it's 2am) is From Beyond... a movie I haven't seen in forever but have pretty fond memories of.
