REEL TASTY: Cleopatra Jones
Blaxploitation never tasted so good! Saturday, July 16th at 7:30pm. We have wanted to hit this genre for a while. We struggled a lot with choosing a film that would keep things light but not cliche the genre. Shaft, although fantastic, has been remade and is almost too overexposed to properly re-examine the Blaxploitation era. Others, like “Cornbread, Earl and Me” dive deeper into social issues. Although that’s a strong message for the genre as a whole, we still wanted to keep you entertained while not making that left brain wrestle too hard with the ideas the film forces us to examine. So where did we go? A 6ft tall, ex-model, international female spy who can kick ass, drive like a pro and fire a gun better than Rambo. Cleopatra Jones of course.
