Directly answering the call for a new and appreciative look back at a distinctly American motion picture phenomenon, Blaxploitation Cinema: Doc Savage rated it it was amazing Jan 03, Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews.
This is the first FAB Press book I’ve read that didn’t totally blow me away, but it’s still well worth a read Despite a lot of good information, and a comprehensive section in which the author does short reviews of TONS of films, this book clearly needed at least one more read by a good copy editor.
The real problem with the book is the author seems to have general contempt for the genre he’s writing about. Lex rated it really liked it Jul 24, This extensive reference section has lots of info which includes year, country, alternate titles, rating, genre, running time, studio, director, producers, soundtrack, cast, plot and a brief review.

Visit our Beautiful Books page and find lovely fhe for kids, photography lovers and more. I loved the poster section, but it lacks any real information about the movies, the stars or the directors, and what you’re really paying for is a review guide written by what seems to be a non-fan of the genre, along with some sloppy interviews. Aside from titles like The Mack and Super Fly, he tends to bury nearly every other title with general negative comments, including favorites of the genre like Truck Turner and Essenhial Jesus Preacher Man, to the absolute hatred of Velvet Smooth referring to Johnnie Hill as “plain-faced and lacking in sex appeal”, which are telltale signs of a bad reviewer, where they pick on the appearance of the star vs the problems with the movie, which Velvet Smooth has many of eseential Blackenstein.
