Baadassss!

Post by Latte Thunder » Fri May 07, 2004 6:42 am

I love soul cinema, blaxploitation, whatever you want to call it. So imagine my surprise when checking out trailers at the apple page that I come across a trailer for a Mario Van Peebles movie called Baadassss!

Now, maybe I'm just behind the times, but I never knew that Mario Van Peebles was the son of Melvin. You'd think that it's pretty obvious, but I'm completely oblivious. At first I thought this was some kind of new blaxploitation throwback, like Rob Zombie's movie was a throwback to 70's horror. But it turns out that it's a sort of biography of Mario's father who directed Sweet Sweetback's Baad Assss Song and the production of that same movie.

Check it out. I can't wait to see it.

hehe...I recently watched Sweet Sweetbacks B on on-demand cable. Somehow it was rather disturbing....:(

Caught this recently and it's a pretty good movie. Covers the movie and Melvin's struggle from start to finish. It also has a great filter effect through the whole movie that makes the print look trashy and gritty like an old blaxploitation movie.
