2020 ERNIE LADD MEMORIAL BLACK HISTORY MONTH (Setup Thread)

Recommended Posts

Back for a 2nd year - same rules as Halloween Havoc, Christmas Chaos, etc...

Step 1: Say You Are In

Step 2: Pick a movie using "Black History Month" as your guidance and send to me via private message (or DM on social media works too. I just need to know who you are)

Step 3: Get assigned a movie

Step 4: Review movie you are assigned

Step 5: Send review to me (again either via PM or if you want to email it just let me know)

Notes: If you want to be swell, pick a movie that is readily available to be watched (legally). Any of the popular streaming services or Youtube are the best choices.

Movies selected last year:

  • The Black Gestapo (1975)
  • Ganja & Hess (1973)
  • Home of the Brave (1949)
  • Shaft (1971)

  • Across 110th Street (1972)
  • The Bingo Long Traveling All Stars & Motor Kings (1976)
  • Gimme The Loot (2012)
  • Friday (1995)
  • Hollywood Shuffle (1987)
  • Jackie Brown (1997)

It is Black History Month and Ernie Ladd is our celebrant.  Of course I am fucking in.

If anyone has Starz / Epix, Ganja & Hess is still in their OnDemand queue. 

You can also rent it from Amazon Prime.

Since I didn't hear from any new people - I am going to just go with what we have and start the process of assigning movies.

Most likely everyone will receive what they were assigned tomorrow

I decided to be wise for once and hand in my review early rather than try to crank one out while I am on graveyard shift.

Two Reminders

1) If I could get picks by this weekend - that would be swell. I will start on Monday (Feb 3) since no one is going to read the board over the weekend and if it is it is to talk about the Super Bowl and to bitch about the WWE's Mania plans

2) If you want to send me a rationale for your pick (and haven't done so already) - feel free to do so. This isn't required but if you want to say anything about your movie shoot it to me in a PM.

I have plenty to at least fill up the first week so we are in good shape.
