    100 Challenge: Layer Cake

    CHALLENGED BY: NOLAHN I sort of remember when Layer Cake came out. It didn’t make such a huge splash cause it starred a bunch of nobodies and was directed by a nobody.

    100 Challenge: Three the Hard Way

    Challenged by: Jason I’m far from a blaxploitation expert. Off the top of my head, the only true blaxploitation film I’ve seen is the original Shaft.
