Classic Motion Picture Review – ‘J.D.’s Revenge’ [1976]

h5dba8

Liverpool [UK], up until 1986, was still the classical Dock/Port in the transportation of goods as well as people. To compare, its local rival Manchester had an established Airport but was only a quarter of its current 2013 size, and also the price of a Plane Ticket was expensive due to lack of competition within the commercial airline sector.

One of the benefits was obtaining things from all over the world as childhood Birthday & Christmas Presents, especially Action Figures from far places…

Whilst I didn’t own that exact action figure I had a number from the same range from Japan and, before you Tweet, they where finally given away to my local Oxfam (UK national chain Charity Shop) once this life-changing moment arrived on my radar…

Due to the overt racism on British 1970’s & 1980’s Television (it still is but only shows up during moments of major national tension) many people got their entertainment via VHS Tapes (the Great-Grandparent of Blu-ray) creating a compilation of African-American Television. Along with similar films this tended to be uplifting rather than humiliating. The media as a whole, even now in the allegedly more liberal era of the early 21st Century, has problems dealing with the following subject. Yet people have been doing this since the beginning of humanity…

The greatest impact those mentioned American VHS compilations had on me was a Horror-Gangster Film

J. D.’s Revenge

The Film, released in 1976 and based in New Orleans, tells the fictional story of a African-American University Student studying Law (a new concept to my 8 year old self in 1985) that gets possessed, after participating as an audience member in a hypnosis act whilst on a night-out in a cabaret club.

Normally in Cinema possession occurs by a demonic force, yet what makes this unique is that it’s done by a restless soul of a murdered Gangster. The genius angle of the Film is the Gangster – ‘J.D Walker’ – died in 1942, and due to the rapid socio-economic changes, especially in America, this might as well be 84 years rather than the actual 34 time difference. Everything had suddenly progressed, from Women’s Rights to Music.

I remember my Dad, talking about ‘J.D Revenge’ for about two weeks to everybody. So, on a School-night in the early hours when everybody was sleeping I went downstairs put the VHS in & put my Dad’s Headphone’s into the front of Television. What I discovered was & still is a classic with plenty of memorable quotes. ‘J.D Revenge’ totally changed the way I saw Black people & for the better as the ending is uplifting.

The Film nails this point in a superb manner with J.D being amazed & surprised at this new world. Praise should go to Glynn Turman for a memorable performance playing two polar opposites, the type of young man who every mother would love her daughter to marry & a foul-mouth ultra-cool street villain.

George Lucas was that impressed with Turman that he was his first Choice to play a certain ‘Han Solo’, yet due to racism in Hollywood & Western Society funding would have NEVER been given as Carrie Fisher was lined-up to play the role of ‘Princess Leia’. Even in 2013, non-White Actors in American Cinema are portrayed as either the side-kick or equal, rarely the hero-lead of a Film. Before anybody mentions Will Smith, in my opinion he’s the Hollywood version of Barack Obama – simply all hype with zero substance. Smith is the kind of Black Man that White People like due to him having no edge when he’s interviewed – you know what you’ll get. Certainly this doesn’t apply to say Samuel L. Jackson, Denzel Washington or the considerably older Morgan Freeman.

It’s possible those in control, yet always in the shadows of the Anglo-American Economic-Political-War Machine, might consider Will Smith as American President thus the perfect marriage of Langley, Virginia to Hollyweird, California. Will Smith has that much clout in Hollywood he can make a vanity project (his Son is the Co-Star) costing $130million yet Zombizoids programmed to worship corporate celebrity will go to the Cinema for this…

Will Smith speaking in that ultra-serious manner is as believable as Real Madrid announcing Tony Pulis as their new Manager. Things can still have high quality with very little or no expense, something Will Smith could do with understanding:

Darren’s latest – ‘Never Rub Another Man’s Rhubarb’

I have great interest in Cinema & it’s deliberate technique in bringing new ideas/morality especially into The Western Developed World. So, when ‘Argo’ was available to watch at my local Picture House, I decided NOT to watch it as the Trailer made it quite clear why it’s Propaganda… “Actions of Iran have shocked the civilized world“:

– –

I decided to use the español subtitled Trailer as this shows the influence that America specificity Hollywood has on the world. Hollywood risked its reputation in agreeing to assist in the extraction of American Diplomats/Spy’s out of Tehran in 1979 but now wants the recognition for services done for the good of the nation. Hence this current 1st Lady’s historic announcement with members of the Military behind her.

Also, it’s designed to send a direct message to the entire population of Iran, around 75 million people, THAT Hollywood & The White House are now bezzie mates, meaning if they don’t start submitting to direct orders from Washington D.C then they will lose on the Battlefield. And they will also lose the sympathy of the ordinary zombizoid masses of The Western World whom worship celebrity, with Hollywood at the apex of this particular pyramid.

‘Argo’ receiving this award should now galvanise the majority of the population of Iran back to it’s political/military class objective around Nuclear Power*, even when suffering from some of the toughest international sanctions since the apartheid regime of 1980’s South Africa. A Film wining an Oscar® for Best Picture should simply be seen as an accolade in the cinematic domain, yet the achievement of ‘Argo’ should worry many as it now seems it’s fine to make big-budget productions that show non-western people as simpletons that can be tricked by even the most outlandish subterfuge. This is the Iranian perspective of ‘Argo’… seeing as the film is based in their country:

It seems Hollywood will make big-budget films on any subject no matter how unusual, yet oddly it hasn’t made a single one surrounding the Apollo 11 Moon Landing – seen by many as America’s greatest ever achievement, which happened 44 years ago. After clicking this you’ll realize why Hollywood would rather deal with fanatical Iranians, talking Robots from ‘Cybertron’, old men in action-films & posh plum-speaking wizards.

They say Hollywood as a place is full of liberals, I disagree and argue it is full of contradiction courtesy of the finest cocaine. An Industry that gave it’s highest award to ‘Argo’ could have serious consequences for humanity. We like our classic Hip-Hop on GeneralJimmy.com so this perfectly sums up ‘Argo’ winning THAT award:

*Note: According to the current Iranian Government, research into Nuclear Power is strictly for civilian/population energy use & NOT for Military purposes. Iran also allows The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to regularly inspect it’s facilities.

Moby on the US election

“For me the election is pretty simple:

obama and the democrats are in favor of fair taxation for all americans and re-building the infrastructure of the united states.
romney and the republicans are in favor of tax breaks for the very wealthy and for letting communities fend for themselves.”

The bald headed vegan sex pest gives it to Mitt Romney and ‘Affluent America’ on this blog post. Go w’ed Moby lad.
