      It saddens me to think of what this film may have been if both studios had stuck to the original blueprint, yet the end result is compelling enough in its rendition of the events that took place on that Day of InfamyPearl HarborRatings Criterion

Coffy, a review by Antares


Coffy (1973) 67/100 - This film made me really feel a bit of nostalgia for my younger days back in the seventies. I had a friend who lived next door to a slowly dying drive-in movie theater. On summer nights, we'd crawl through a hole in the dilapidated wooden fencing in his back yard and after spreading out blankets and lawn chairs, would sit back and watch the best and worst of B movie fare for free. I never saw this film in that situation, but I can assure you, it would have been one of our favorites. It really should be called Tits-a-Poppin', because AIP must have had it in their contract with the director that there can't be a ten minute gap in the film without someone either disrobing or having their blouse ripped off to show their breasts. Pam Grier is her usual smokin' self and really doesn't get much to do except get naked and get revenge for her sister. If you go into it with the right mind set, you can have a lot of fun with a film like Coffy, but if you're looking for a slick production or a masterfully written screenplay, then you've embarked on the wrong ship. One last note, Roy Ayers is definitely not Isaac Hayes or Curtis Mayfield, as the soundtrack for this film seems as if it was thrown together in just a few hours, and is pretty lame.

What the color coding means...

Teal = Masterpiece
Dark Green = Classic or someday will be
Lime Green = A good, entertaining film
Orange = Average
Red = Cinemuck
Brown = The color of crap, which this film is

"Big Bang Theory" Marathon, a review by Achim


9. The Cooper-Hofstadter Polarization
Leonard and Sheldon go from physics to fisticutts when tempers flare at the symposium.

Now here you go... "It happens m ore often than you'd think." :laugh: What a fun episode to see this to physicists pick a fight with each other and then sucxk at apologizing :clap:


10. The Loobenfeld Decay
Sheldon cannot tell a lie. He has to tell at least seven. And they are all "un-unravelable!"

Like Pete said, it was great to watch Sheldon protect his lie. Also his usual carelessness reagrding social protocol comes out several times; gotta love him for that.
