Some Nazi-themed movies to consider: Bruno Mattei’s SS GIRLS and WOMEN’S CAMP 119; APT PUPIL from the 1990s; FLESH FEAST, which was 1930s sex symbol Veronica Lake’s last film; SHOCK WAVES, and Jess Franco’s OASIS OF THE ZOMBIES.

Also, the sequel to SUPERFLY was SUPERFLY T.N.T. There was a second sequel produced in the 1990s called THE RETURN OF SUPERFLY, but with a different actor.

Did Forest ever see the FIFTY SHADES sequel?

Some Brucesploitation suggestions:

- Dragon Lives Again – the adventures of Bruce Lee inside hell;
- Clones of Bruce Lee – title speaks for itself;
- Exit the Dragon, Enter the Tiger – the most financially-successful one (it beat out the ’76 King Kong);
- Tower of the Death – Considered the best Brucesploitation and a sequel to Game of Death;
- Challenge of the Tiger – highest quotient of nudity in these films;
- Iron Dragon Strikes Back (aka Gold Connection) – Almost like a Brucesploitation slasher film.

Package is on the way. Normally I'd wait until you received it before mentioning the 2 movies to review, but I'd like to try to get it in before February is over, since it's a bit relevant.

The subject focus of the movies I'd like to recommend: movies that have been censored and/or banned.

The movie: White Dog

Not to be confused with White God, but it has a similar theme. The theme being racism. In the case of the film White Dog, which was originally supposed to be released in 1982, it had a message about racism. But members of the NAACP determined that the message was pro-racism, that it encouraged violence in the name of racism. So they, in-effect, got the movie suppressed from release (ie banned) for 10 fucking years! To quote one of the NAACP members:

“We’re against the whole thrust of the film and what it says about racism, especially with the rise of the Klan, which always occurs during bad economic times.” -- Collette Wood, NAACP spokesperson, 1981

The movie was never seen until a limited art house release in the early 90s, and was then (much) later released on Criterion. If Criterion determined it worthy of being released, that should tell you enough about the quality of the film.

In case you're wondering, this movie does not promote a pro-racist message. Quite the opposite actually. But it got shelved for a long period of time because some dipshit dumbass dumbfuck dickhead individuals who know nothing about interpreting the message of a film cried "racism", threw the racist card at Hollywood, and got their way.

So, here's links to the movie (in 2 parts):
