Vince and Len review COOL BREEZE, the 1972 heist film remake of 1950's The Asphalt Jungle, with Thalmus Rasulala and Raymond St. Jacque and the indelible Judy Pace.
Vince and Len spend an awful lot of time on emails, The Five Heartbeat rumors, Widows, Thanksgiving stuffing and whole lot of other stuff but eventually they have no choice but to stand toe-to-toe with The Six Thousand Dollar Nigger from 1978.

EXPLICIT CONTENT - The Micheaux Men return to Butch & Coco's in Brooklyn to chat about Samuel Jackson, the D.O.C., who be a 'dandy' and much more four-letter insanity - including 1975's Dolemite - with actors/best friends DORIAN MISSICK (Luke Cage) and OMAR DORSEY (Halloween).
AUDIO PROBLEMS AHEAD - Len and a poorly mic'd Vince gush all over the 1975 Sidney Poitier - Bill Cosby action comedy that features John Amos in beast mode and Jimmy Walker in least mode.
Len and Vince return to the Mission and are met by the pleasant surprise of warm regards and emails from the audience and a really well made piece of blaxploitation called SUGAR HILL.
After reading their feedback from the Missionaries, Vince leads Len into a dissection of the loosely science fictional blaxploitation flick WELCOME HOME, BROTHER CHARLES.
Important film in Black cinema history? One's hard-on fever dream? Vince & Len make their arguments; you decide. One thing they agree on: LIVING SINGLE IS BACK!
The Men get a welcome response to their Facebook group debut, including some celebrity feedback (oooh!) before - regrettably - getting down to the business of reviewing the rushed sequel to 1972's noble attempt at blaxploitation horror.
William Marshall strikes an imposing yet regal figure at the titular vampire of this blaxploitation classic that shamefully misses its mark but not without the actors giving their all. Most of them, anyway.
Issac Hayes, Yaphet Kotto and Star Trek's Nichelle Nichols are having so much fun chewing the scenery of 1974's TRUCK TURNER it's no wonder that Vince and Len have an equally fun time reviewing the blaxploitation classic.
The Men of Micheaux revel in the many shades of goodness in Marvel's THE DEFENDERS before enduring the task of waiting for 'just a little something more' from Jim 'The Dragon' Kelly in BLACK BELT JONES.
Vince and Len give their SPOILER-FILLED review of the surprise hit (to some) WONDER WOMAN before wondering how the world prepared for the emergence of Pam Grier from her ground-breaking work in Jack Hill's COFFY.
Len tries to dispel the rumor that he hates 'these movies' then deconstructs 2001's POOTIE TANG before Vince's chagrined eyes. Point made?
Counter culture animator Ralph Bakshi mixes live action with incendiary cartoon images to create a daring controversial satire on African American life in the big city...or is it a stab into the gut of great mafia romance of the seventies? Or is it just a mess and a miss? The Men of Micheaux discuss, for your edutainment.
Vince is off buying a home but the Mission continues with comedian Darryl Charles and his special selection to kick off LISTENER MOVIE MONTH - 2009's blaxploitation parody superb BLACK DYNAMITE, starring Michael Jai White, Salli Richardson, Tommy Davidson, Byron Minns, Kym Whitley and a host of cameos, quotes and mind numbing kung-fu hilarity.
Here's a little story of how Martin and Sharon of the Cinemosity podcast on the Nerdy Little Secret network chose to review a blaxploitation horror flick starring 'Preacher' of Cooley High thinking it was one thing and come out of their convo with Men thinking something else. Kinda. Sorta. Just listen.
Listener feedback, winning iTunes comments, a running commentary and the coolest man ever to walk the planet. COTTON COMES TO HARLEM in 1970 with smoothness and wit following close behind.
Yaphet Kotto in a comedy. Talented young actors speaking a jive dialect unlike any spoken before. Rudy Ray Moore exists. The Monkey Hustle. What is The Monkey Hustle? The movie doesn't know. Do you?
