Treatment 160 – Truck Turner

MackTruckTurnerAwwwww yeah, it’s time for some Schloxploitation! Yep, it’s Febuary, and in honor of Black History Month, we’re covering all African-American films from the 1970s (sometimes collectively referred to as Blaxploitation films). And we’re starting it off right with a great film featuring some of our favorite black actors, like Yaphet Kotto, Nichelle Nichols, and Isaac Hayes!!

Truck Turner

This flick has all the requisite blaxploitation ingredients, like goofy pimp outfits, but still manages to just be an excellent action film! There’s drama, intrigue, action, suspense, and badassery!

This week on the show: Doug finally gets to use his “Scott Bakula” joke in association with the film Blackula, despite the fact that we can no longer cover Blackula. Marc is sick, and coughs a lot. Kirk botches his David Bowie impression. And Matt does his “Rockfish”, “Jackie Chan & Owen Wilson”, and “Marc is from Germany” bits………..again.

Next Week: Schloxploitation month continues, this time with special guest Jon Cross from The After Movie Diner Podcast, to discuss Pam Grier in Friday Foster!!!

  1. We have a bridge here called the Port Mann. It was recently replaced with a newer, bigger bridge, which I will now refer to as the Port Mann Two. Now with tolls!

      1. I think mine’s connected to my email through Gravatar. And since I haven’t been into Gravatar in years and don’t care to get a new password for it, I’m pretty much going to be the Shockmaster forever.

  2. Should I start adding footnotes to my messages? I have the time—According to wikipedia, I’ve been sitting on the ocean floor since 1945. I can add enough citations to make the ghost of David Foster Wallace cringe. But I hope it doesn’t come to that. The only barely relevant morbid anecdote I have to share this week involves Nichelle Nichols. Her brother was a member of the Heaven’s Gate cult that in 1997 infamously greeted the arrival of comet Hale-Bopp with massive doses of phenobarbital and Ziploc-brand space helmets, thus gifting Jay Leno with three solid months of “beam me up” zingers.
