Cornbread, Earl and Me
The unintentional shooting by police of a star basketball player has profound personal, political and community repercussions in this acclaimed adaptation of the novel Hog Butcher by Ronald Fair. This was one of the more thoughtful urban dramas produced at the height of the "blaxploitation" craze. Also released under the title Hit the Open Man, it features the screen debut of Laurence Fishburne, who was barely a teenager at the time.

(de) wrote: The execution, pacing and story is simply impeccable and amazing. It goes way out of the typical horror formula and mixes in traditional ways of the genre. Must must must watch!!!
(ru) wrote: This movie was better than I thought in the way of acting and special effects, but the story was a little boring.
(au) wrote: Under-Rated. Personally I don't understand why people seem to dislike this movie, I thought it was hilarious. I think some people took this too seriously, you gotta just have fun with it.

(au) wrote: An enjoyable enough mid week military thriller.
(gb) wrote: This movie was made when Bert Reynolds popularity was starting to slide. It's a movie about Stock Car Racing. It's an excuse to use stock footage of real Stock Car Races. Stock Car Racing wasn't as popular as it is now but did have a loyal fan base. It's a comedy with Burt Reynolds and Jim Nabors acting silly. Jim Nabors plays a character similar to Gomer Pyle, just a little smarter and is more of the straight man. He's the head mechanic on Stroker Ace's race car team. Burt plays Stroker Ace, a womanizing, self centered race car driver. Burt married Loni Anderson after the movie was made. She plays his love interest in the movie. She was young and super hot at the time and still doing "WKRP in Cincinnati". The whole story is about Stroker Ace trying to get out of a sponsor's contract because he has to do things that are beneath him. The sponsor is the owner of a chain of fast food chicken restaurants. Ned Beatty plays the sponsor. I got it in a three disk package with Hooper and Sharky's Machine. I was trying to buy just Sharky's Machine but they shipped me the Triple Feature. I think all these movies are coming out on Blue Ray soon and the original DVD's are getting hard to find but the Triple Feature package is still available.
(us) wrote: Story's structure is the same as 'Harakiri' however the latter remains Kobayashi's finest piece. Kobayashi always uses the Father's point of view as well as his protagonist, bearing them with characteristics of love of family and the revenge for its loss. As a tragedy, Samurai Rebellion leaves the audience with a sour taste of life and its romance.
