“Be Cool, or Be Cooled”

November 4th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Earlier this year, we rescued several heaping armfuls of vinyl from a building on our blocks that’s undergoing a gut renovation. Many of the platters were too damaged to be of use, but there were gems amidst the trash—most notably an original pressing of the soundtrack for Three Tough Guys (aka Tough Guys). The lead cut off the B side, “Hung Up on My Baby, provided the hook for the Geto Boys most memorable tune. As for the movie itself—well, we’ve yet to see the whole thing, but anything in which Isaac Hayes plays one half of a vigilante priest/ex-cop tandem can’t be bad, right?

    This may be the most Tarantinorrific trailer I’ve ever seen. The bar at 0:32 reminds me a little of the one in Pulp Fiction.

    Good call. I actually think a couple of the soundtrack tunes show up in the “Kill Bill” flicks.

    Movie is actually an Italian production, believe it or not. Guess that explains the badass priest.
