One Down, Two To Go

Okay, get this…it has Fred Williamson, Jim Brown, Richard Roundtree, AND Jim Kelly in it! It’s got to be amazing, right? Well…let’s just say that opinions differ.

Friday Foster

This flick has sexy Pam Grier, super cool Yaphet Kotto, and so much more! There are shootouts, car chases, pimps, garbage trucks backing over phone booths, horny priests, and the list goes on and on!

On This Episode: Jon shares his stories about Pam Grier touching his beard, his thoughts on the blaxploitation genre, his idea for a new exploitation genre about Brits, his love for Thalmus Rasulala, his jokes about jerk-off creme, his fondness for Live and Let Die, and so much more!!! Kirk is ginger, and tries to be supportive! Marc coughs a lot and rants about Matt’s absence! And Doug tries to get a word in edgewise!

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!!!
