    I just got done watching "welcome home brother charles", while it was chessy and poorly made I enjoyed it.

    "A proud black man does time in jail where he is subjected to heinous experiments. Once released, he goes about extracting vengeance on those who put him in prison. This includes both seducing their women and murdering them by a mysterious means. Then the hook is revealed - his murder weapon is his own genitals which are now enormous and super powered as a result of the experiments he endured in prison. You heard me right; he kills with his penis and you see it all!"


    :rofl: wtf plot. and it got a 1.4/10

    Sounds like a pretty funny movie.

    I like the blaxploitation parodies like "I Gonna Get You Sucka" & "Undercover Brother".

    I remember watching that movie with my roommate. Quentin tarantino recommended it to him. My roommate's gf was in a tarantino movie (grindhouse).

    Supposedly "Baadasssss! How to Get the Man's Foot Outta Your Ass" is pretty good (7.6/10 @ IMDb), it's a half documentary/half homage to blaxploitation:

    Haven't seen it yet though, too many movies, not enough time :run:

    The Mack and Dolemite are pretty good.

    "Goldie" from The Mack is the most laid-back dude ever :bigthumb:

    I saw a trailer for that one, and then nothing.
    I hope it's still coming out.

    Bamboozled is a pretty good commentary on the 'minstrelsy' genre, both past and present.

    Yet simultaneously a failure of a film. It might have been more effective if the acting was marginally believable and if the minstrelsy as actually FUNNY. Spike Lee just ended up delivering something that looked more like a high school student's neo-Shakespearean tradegy for drama class. Yea, we get your point, but put it in an essay or something. Leave art for those who can masterfully elevate their message, not flush it down the shitter into an abyss of confused cultural signifiers and underdeveloped and misdirected dialogue.

    Dolomite's the best:
    "Think you're cool, think you got class? I'll shove this shotgun up your motherfucking ass!"

    Boy: "Momma, look, those people are having a party up there!"
    Mother: (in a disgusted tone) "You fool! Those aren't people, those are niggers!"

    :rofl:
