Posted in Blaxploitation on Nov 21st, 2016
This week Lee and Daniel take a look at two blaxploitation films with a female lead that don't star Pam Grier (don't worry, they'll eventually get to her as well). Up for review first is the Bondish "Cleopatra Jones" (1973), and then the cheap, chopsocky cash-in "TNT Jackson" (1974). Listener comments are also covered. This one is a bit more of a casual episode again -- short and sweet and hard to defeat. Take a hard line and you'll have a bad time. Turn that frown upside down or you'll enter demolition town. It has kicks to the head that will leave you dead. Okay, we'll stop now.
