There are a ton of great events tomorrow. View many, many here. Regardless, it is hard to pass this up. Look at that poster and read the description. Genius. I want to watch this movie every day for the next year. The “greatest pimp funeral in movie history“?!! Boom. I'm there.
From Dan/Grindhouse Film Fest:
This Saturday only at 7pm at the Hollywood Theatre, The Grindhouse Film Festival presents the blacksploitation classic TRUCK TURNER!Ãƒâ€š A tribute to the recently deceased Isaac Hayes!Ãƒâ€š Watch the trailer here: shaolinslums.blogspot.com/2009/05/truck-turner.html
TRUCK TURNER (1974) The great Isaac Hayes stars as bounty hunter Mac “Truck” Turner.Ãƒâ€š When he's not making the ladies swoon, he's busting cons who skip bail.Ãƒâ€š He's out to catch a pimp named Gator, but along the way he stirs up all kinds of trouble with the seedy 70's underworld.
A price is put on Truck's head: a stable of ho's is the prize for killing him. Yaphet Kotto plays a ruthless pimp out to collect, and Truck is forced to fight back.Ãƒâ€š This movie is filled with great dialogue, action packed excitement, and an amazing Isaac Hayes soundtrack (plus, the greatest pimp funeral in movie history).Ãƒâ€š A rare 35mm print with 70's blacksploitation trailers before the movie.Ãƒâ€š Don't miss it!
