Episode 21: Undercover Brother (2002)

underdercoverbrotherThe second half our our look at parodies comes full circle with our look at Blaxploitation films in episode 21 with 2002's "Undercover Brother!" Directed by Malcolm D. Lee (cousin to Spike Lee), and written by John Ridley (who wrote the acclaimed "12 Years a Slave"), the film stars Eddie Griffin, Chris Kattan, Denise Richards, Aunjanue Ellis, Dave Chappelle, Chi McBride, Neil Patric Harris, Gary Anthony Williams, and Billy Dee Williams! It's a farce, a romp, that's not afraid to laugh at itself along with the audience, nor poke at some racial stereotypes and beliefs throughout, while, in the end, giving us a really entertaining film! And finally, the trio reveal what two Pixar films they're reviewing for episode 13 as "representative" of the company that has brought us so much feeling and laughter over the last two decades and more!

Episode 20: Austin Powers I (1997)

austinpowersEpisode 20 is all about parody, specifically films that parody an entire genre, and the suave international spy genre is our first target! Buddy, Chad, and Jeff review 1997's "Austin Powers-International Man of Mystery," directed by Jay Roach, written by and starring Mike Mysers! This film also stars Elizabeth Hurley, Michael York, Mimi Rogers, Robert Wagner, Seth Green, Fabiana Udenio, Mindy Sterling, and Will Ferrell in probably the best send-up of the James Bond films to be made yet!

Episode 19: Coffy (1974)

coffyPart two our look at Blaxploitation moves toward the end of that period for 1973's "Coffy." A true part of the genre, this independent film from American International Pictures stars Pam Grier in the titular role, with supporting performances from Booker Bradshaw, Robert DoQui, Sid Haig, and Allan Arbus! Combining the best elements from Blaxploitation as well as the feminist movement of the mid-70s, this film is all about revenge and justice. And, of course, at the end of the episode, the Geeks and the GIT talk about genre parodies and which two films they'll be reviewing for episodes 20 and 21!

Episode 18: Shaft (1971)

shaftIn honor of Luke Cage, episode 11 is all about the Blaxploitation films of the 70s. We're starting with one of the best, and a rarity at that - a blaxploitation film produced by a major studio! It's 1971's "Shaft" starring the incredible Richard Roundtree. Directed by the amazing Gordon Parks, with iconic music by Isaac Hayes, this was the beginning of a genre that sought to exploit, but resulted in a lifting up of an entire culture!

Episode 17: The Terminator (1984)

terminatorIn the second part of their "Atomic Future Warning" episode, the filmic trio of Geeks Buddy and Jeff, along with Geek-In-Training Chad, run and hide their way through 1984's nightmarish science-fiction epic "The Terminator." Written (partially) and directed by Hollywood legend James Cameron, and starring Michael Biehn and Linda Hamilton, this movie is most remembered as the breakout role for a young Arnold Schwarzenegger, before anyone really knew who he was. It's also a deeply scary film, featuring an adversary that it is next to impossible to stop, and destroying it is the only way to survive! At the end of the episode, the Geeks and GIT discuss how the new "Luke Cage" series on Netflix has influenced their choices for the next pairing!
