Across 110th Street is one of the best films ever made,not just within the Blaxploitation genre.

Other's I'd recommend are;

BLACULA
SCREAM BLACULA SCREAM
FOXY BROWN
SUPERFLY
SHAFT
COFFY
BIG DOLL HOUSE
FRIDAY FOSTER
SHAFT IN AFRICA
JD'S REVENGE

Not so hot;
ABBY (To be fair,a SHIT quality dvd spoiled the experience).
SHAFT'S BIG SCORE

Not watched yet;
BLACKENSTEIN
DR BLACK MR HYDE

Cleopatra Jones, Slaughter's Big Rip Off and Candy Tangerine Man are also great fun.

Trouble Man is another gem. Robert Hooks's meanest role.

Cooley High is great fun too. Cotton Comes To Harlem gets some mixed notices but I quite enjoyed it. The sequel (Welcome Back Charleston Blue) isn't as good.

Bucktown is also a goodie though OOP and Pick up the Jim Jones films including Black Belt Jones in the newly released Warner 4 movie Urban Action collection.Also features Black Samson,which I've never seen.Terrific value for 4 movies & probably even cheaper elsewhere.

If you like those, be sure to pick up 'Black Dynamite' as well. It made me howl!
