Marvel’s Luke Cage Season 1 Review

Seven episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

From Netflix and Marvel’s nocturnal vision of the sprawling New York City streets emerges Luke Cage, yet another tale of revenge and redemption, this time with the Wu-Tang Clan providing boom-bap beats for the bloody beatdowns. Viewers who push all of the adaptation anxiety and Defenders tie-in hype to the side for a moment will find a powerhouse of a show that mixes the provocative fantasy of blaxploitation with the pulpy intrigue of mob warfare to great success.

The fact that Luke Cage exists as a slice of a larger Netflix superhero pie alongside Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and the forthcoming Iron Fist will be the primary appeal to those obsessed with their eventual crossover team-up in The Defenders, but the show serves an arguably greater purpose in that it brings something to the fore that we’ve yet to see from Marvel.

Good-bye, Alex And Mary

It’s definitely been a week for good-byes.

My daughters and I spent the weekend in the beautiful, still somewhat quaint small town of Auburn, California, helping to lay to rest and celebrate the life of my dear aunt Mary Pascuzzi, my fraternal grandmother’s sister, who was the centered matriarch of her own family and a stabilizing force for all of us in her extended family as well. She, and my grandmother, were big fans of classic-era American movies and enthusiastically encouraged my interest, just one reason why they’re both held dear in my heart and in my memory. And being Italian, they both had more than a casual interest in The Godfather when it came out in 1972. I remember my aunt Mary talking to me about having seen it and wondering, me at the ripe old age of 12, if I’d had a chance to go yet.

'Godfather' Star Alex Rocco Passes Away at Age 79

'Godfather' Star Alex Rocco Passes Away at Age 79
Actor Alex Rocco, best known for playing mobster Moe Green in the 1972 classic The Godfather, passed away on Saturday in his Studio City, California home at the age of 79. The actor's stepson, Sean Doyle, confirmed to The Los Angeles Times that the actor passed away after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer. The actor's long career spanned 50 years, with over 150 TV and film credits.

Alex Rocco was born Alessandro Federico Petricone Jr. in Boston, who caught the acting bug at the age of 30, when he took an acting class to meet women. After moving to Los Angeles, he took a class taught by Leonard Nimoy, who promptly kicked him out because he couldn't understand his thick Boston accent. He then enrolled in a speech class which transformed his Boston accent with a New York accent, which Leonard Nimoy said he could work with. He made his acting debut with the 1965 Russ Meyer film Motorpsycho!

15 Black Films From the 1970's You Must See

Initially planning to make a list of just 10 films, it was easy at first, but then I quickly realized that the 70's were a great time for black films and there was such a wide diversity of films, that I couldn't just list 10 blaxploitation flicks, but instead, expanded the list to include other films from that period that would not easily fit into the blaxploitation genre. Keep in mind that this is my list and not the last, definite word on the subject. Feel free to add, subtract or argue with my choices. We still have freedom of speech. 1) "Three The Hard Way" - (1974  dir. Gordon Parks Jr.) The great Gordon Parks' son had quite a ride in the 70's cranking out...

Why 1974 was the best year in film history

Why 1974 was the best year in film history
All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. I was one of the first to select years for this particular exercise, which probably allowed me to select the correct year. The answer is, of course, 1974 and all other answers are wrong. No matter what your criteria happens to be, 1974 is going to come out on top. Again, this is not ambiguous or open to debate. We have to start, of course, with the best of the best. "Chinatown" is one of the greatest movies ever made. You can't structure a thriller better than Robert Towne and Roman Polanski do, nor shoot a Los Angeles movie better than John Alonzo has done. Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway give the best performances of their careers, which is no small achievement. If you ask

'Coffy' (The Greatest Black Film Ever Made) Finally Coming to Blu-ray in April

O.K., O.K. I admit that I did exaggerate somewhat. What I really meant to say was that "Coffy" is one of the greatest black films ever made. The others being "Three the Hard Way," "Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off," "Melinda" and "Foxy Brown," of course, in case you’re wondering. But "Coffy" is in a class by itself, and it could only have been made at the time it was, starring the African Goddess herself Pam Grier. Can you imagine anyone making a film like this today? Who would play the lead role? Yeah, right. You see what I mean? Written and directed by Jack Hill, the plot is deceptively simple at first, but gets more...

Exploitation Alley: Three The Hard Way (1974)

I suppose I can blame this week’s Exploitation Alley on my best friend (and wife of Icons’ editor Jerry) for sending me a picture of a very shirtless, and very hot Michael Jai White as Black Dynamite. For some reason, ok…for many reasons I thought of the 1974 Blaxploitation classic Three The Hard Way. This film has everything our little Blaxploitation loving hearts desire. It stars Jim Kelly, Jim Brown, and Fred Williamson, has quite a few groovy tunes, explosions that appear out of nowhere, and an interesting sound effect that kind of just happens throughout the movie. It almost sounds like a really intense, yet very sad drop of water. Why? I have no idea. But weird drop of water sound effect aside, Three The Hard Way is one hell of a great film, cheese and all.

The film starts off pretty action packed, and thankfully remains that
