Genre and time periods

I understand that Blaxploitation is a recognized genre. But is it strictly movies from the first hald of the seventies or can we include more recent efforts? --Jcordell 17:36, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Good Idea, what movies should go there? Maybe Jackie Brown and .... that all i can think of BeardedHoplite 19:45, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Jackie Brown, Shaft (2000), Black Dynamite, Undercover Brother, and I'm Gonna Git You Sucka belong because they're spoofs/pastiches of blaxploitation films of the seventies. I'm not sure any film made after the early eighties applies though. Where do we draw the line? Does Boys in the Hood count? Or Dead Presidents? --Funkychinaman (talk) 04:39, 25 March 2014 (EDT)
Wikipedia claims that such post-1970s films as I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Original Gangstas, Jackie Brown, Undercover Brother, Black Dynamite and even 2012 Django Unchained belong to this genre (it seems to me that the latter is a little excessive expansion). Greg-Z (talk) 04:55, 25 March 2014 (EDT)
There is such thing as a blaxploitation western, Take a Hard Ride comes to mind. (Well, blaxploitation spaghetti western.) And the theme in Django Unchained is fighting back against The Man. --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:05, 25 March 2014 (EDT)
Take a Hard Ride is in my To-Do list (if I'll have enough time...). So it will fall into categories Spaghetti Western and Blaxploitation. :) Greg-Z (talk) 14:18, 25 March 2014 (EDT)
I have it in my Netflix queue as well. Oddly enough, they don't have Three the Hard Way, which was the first film to assemble Jim Brown, Fred Williamson and Jim Kelly. --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:26, 25 March 2014 (EDT)
If you have plans on Take a Hard Ride, it's yours. I have a lot other films to work on. Greg-Z (talk) 14:34, 25 March 2014 (EDT)
