One of the best of the 70s. Richard Roundtree is cool, the music is cool, the New York locations are cool . . . damn . . . it's so cool. "Shut your mouth!"

I prefer other Blaxploitation films of the era like Foxy Brown, Coffy, Cleopatra Jones, Black Caesar, Dolemite and others for a variety of reasons however that doesn't take away from Shaft's importance. It help made the genre go mainstream.

COFFY
is one of my favorite films, and FOXY BROWN is a smorgasbord of delights.

Same here. Iconic? Sure. A good movie? Not really.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

COFFY is my favorite as well. The MACK is a close second.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
