    Sadistic Pam Grier 🔥🔥🔥🥵🥵🥵

    [watched in a de ja vu double feature w/ The Big Doll House with George at New Bev. Must link again to Jermaine Jackson GROOVING in a theater kids jail. This one really commits to the prison escape, the ending + the (Princess Bride-esque) torture devices :)]

    This not being dumped on Paramount+? That’s miracle no. 1. Seeing Tom Cruise in IMAX after the plague? That’s miracle no. 2.

    Get me in a fantasy dog fight football league ASAP! First pick: Hangman’s toothpick.

    Cheesy, exciting, old school - and exactly what the doctor ordered. This is the only movie studio execs can call “muscular filmmaking” without making me wanna retch. I missed seeing you run, Tom - thanks for holding out so we could see…
