In New Orleans, The Grateful Dead were arrested for possession of LSD and barbituates, an incident which would inspire the song, ‘Truckin’.

Coffy or Foxy Brown?

Watched a couple of bad ass Pam Grier films over the weekend. Coffy (1973) and Foxy Brown (1974). Both are excellent examples of 70’s blaxploitation. I felt Coffy was a little more violent including a shotgun decapitation scene in the beginning.

On the other hand, Foxy Brown had better use of great terms like, ‘Dynomite’ & ‘Jive Turkey’. In fact, I’d be willing to wager that not until the movie Semi Pro has the term ‘Jive Turkey’ been used so well in a film.

Here’s your chance to vote for which one you like best.
Both are currently available on netflix streaming.
