Wondering why times are missing?


Evidently we're down to the "S"es on remakes. Here, the 1972 blaxploitation classic from Gordon Parks Jr. gets a modern-day update. (We got Shaft back in 2000.) Brought to life by noted hip hop music video guru "Director X," this one transfers the story of slick cocaine dealer Youngblood Priest (singer/dancer/actor Travis Jackson) from Harlem to Atlanta. Our antihero wants to make one last score before retiring to Montenegro with his two girlfriends—but we all know how that sort of thing works out. Go watch Scarface for the fifteenth time instead. 116 minutes R.
