Throwback: The Mack

My father and I share a love for Blaxploitation films (I hate calling them that!). We recently watched The Mack together. I had to admit that I saw snippets of The Mack when I was younger. My crazy dad didn’t ask any questions. Instead we discussed the deeper points of the movie which included the heated conversation about whose afro was tighter, Max Julien’s, “Bruce” Leroy Green’s* or my dad’s. We soon concluded that what Bruce Leroy was rocking was more of a curl (or a natro as my dad called it) and my father beat Max Julien only because Dad was able to produce a box in the attic that held Black hair care products from the 70s…(oh Dad, what a pack rat). This is one of the reasons my father and I get along so well. He keeps the 70s boxed up in the attic and I wish that I had come of age in the 70s.
*speaking of Bruce Leroy, did anyone else know about a remake of The Last Dragon? Supposedly Samuel L. Jackson is playing Sho’Nuff. So fitting. The Last Dragon deserves its own post.

Anyway, that was a tad off topic. When I was 10, I did catch some snippets of The Mack and I have to admit that I had a little crush on Max Julien who played John Mickens aka Goldie. Here’s one of the best scenes in the movie.

Mr. Pretty Tony, I mean, you know the rules of the game. I mean, your bitch just chose me. Now we can settle this like you got some class…or we can get into some gangsta shit. -Goldie

You shade tree nigga. You ain’t no pimp. You a rest haven for hoes. You a car thief! A car thief! The one you got out there is prolly hot as a firecracker right now.-Pretty Tony

CLASSIC!!!
