ERNIE LADD MEMORIAL BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Recommended Posts

Now all I can think about is the Magenta Thompson skits from In Living Color.

"Black Mama, White Mama...I believe that's the one where you kept your shirt on."

If there is a Pam Grier movie where she keeps her shirt on, I don't consider it a Pam Grier movie.

Bruce Lee passed away at July. Can I suggest now that the summer movie topic should be Kung Fu/Martial Arts pictures? 

(His birthday is in November, so badly timed between the Halloween & Xmas movie projects.) 

Also acceptable: September, birth month of The Great Kabuki

Human Tornado is fucking Citizen Kane compared to Scream, Blacula, Scream! 

Shit, I like Scream better than the original Blacula. You can probably blame Pam for that. 

I'm in.

Human Tornado is one of my favorite movies and probably Rudy Ray Moore's most entertaining film for me. Just a really fun movie full of comedy, sex and violence. It isn't as bleak as Petey Wheatstraw or Avenging Disco Godfather

But his November birthday is the reason why El Rey has the Way of the Turkey marathon on Thanksgiving weekend.

If you pulled out all of the Dracula references and Blaxploitation stuff, Blacula and Scream would be two of the best vampire stories ever bar none. 

I was really hoping that Vampire In Brooklyn was going to be a good Blacula without the bullshit re-image, but it wasn't.

Speaking of Afrocentric vampire tales, Ganja & Hess would've been my pick for this thing if it weren't so infernally hard to find and I won't make anyone suffer through the sub-par Spike Lee re-image, Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus.

Def By Temptation might not be a bad pick for someone delving into Black Horror Movies.  I will put my personal fave list up in the Horror Movie Thread next month

Kino Lorber put out a blu of Ganja & Hess.  It is mighty.

I will update the list of whose in and who still owes me a pick later this afternoon.

Just a quick reminder that I need all folks who are in and their movie selections by Monday
