Shaft (1971)
  The gran'daddy of blaxploitation along with the '72 classic Superfly. Writer Ernest Tidyman (The French Connection) and director Gordon Parks are a solid gold team-up.
Superfly (1972)
  Finally available on DVD and in a SE no less! Tough, gritty and loaded with cool jive and hot suga. Sadly, and ironically, O'Neil passed away less than a week after this disc was released.
Shaft's Big Score! (1972)
  Top-drawer sequel shows more of it's Ramond Chandler roots. Director Gordon Parks does the score this time out and it's excellent.
Across 110th Street (1972)
  Awesome, gritty-as-hell '70s urban crime flick that mixes great dialogue, hard-hitting violence, excellent acting and a great twisting plot.
Slaughter (1972)
  Jim Brown is a baaaaaad man. Lots of action, great heavies (Rip Torn, oh yeah!), excellent camerawork and no one can spit out tough-talkin' jive like Jim!
Slaughter's Big Rip-Off (1973)
  Incredible sequel features the brilliant pairing of Don Stroud and Ed MacMahon (yes, the very same) as racist, vile mobsters just lookin' to get the smack laid down on them! Awesome.
Hell Up In Harlem (1973)
  Oh hell yeah! No one makes blaxploitation like Larry Cohen (except maybe Jack Hill)! Probably The Hammer's finest hour. Great supporting cast too.
Cleopatra Jones (1973)
  Totally under-appreciated blaxploitation classic with Shelly Winters as the heavy (no pun intended). Beautifully shot in 2.35 and loaded with fast paced action and dialogue. One of the main films spoofed by I'm Gonna Git You Sucka.
Coffy (1973)
  No one, but NO ONE makes exploitation like Jack Hill. Fast-paced, violent as hell and sharp as a tack, this is one of Pam Greir's best.
Foxy Brown (1974)
  Jack Hill does it again, this time with the great Sid Haig on board. Once again, violent and sleazy but yet sharp and finely crafted exploitation.
Truck Turner (1974)
  My all-time favorite and sort of a send-up of blaxploitation films. Issac Hayes stars, the cast is amazing, the dialogue is priceless, the camerawork is stylish and the pace is fast. Hayes also turns in a great semi-parody of his Shaft theme.
The Dynamite Brothers (1974)
  Al Adamson tries his hand at the East-meets-West blaxploitation meets kung-fu genre with great results! Way better than average Adamson fare with a great cast.
Bucktown (1975)
  Tougher than leather, Fred "The Hammer" Williamson comes back home to find out how his brother died and runs into a whole mess of corruption that needs to be cleaned up. There's a nice twist mid-movie too.
I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (1988)
  A perfect send-up of a huge amount of blaxploitation films and the beauty is the film is funny even if you haven't seen all the movies it spoofs.
Original Gangstas (1996)
  A great little homage to the blaxploitation films of the '70s from one of the masters Larry Cohen. Maybe not up to the standards of the classics, but it's great to see that cast together for another run. Makes us old schoolers shed a tear anyway.
