    • Item: New Jack City (R, 1991) movie Location: by: Famous

      This was THE hit movie of the early 1990’s. Wesley Snipes was a sex symbol at the time (as he was in the other 1991 hit, Jungle Fever).

      But what really was great

      about this film was that it captured a time when rap music and violence were extremely “blowing up” in the media.

      There were a lot of famous faces in rap and R&B at the time, like Ice-T and Christopher Williams.

      Some of the acting is a ...

      • little stodgy.

        But no one really cared.

        There was too much action.

        Really, the movie was like a 2-hour long music video.

        One of the characters that I liked (and hated) the most was “Pookie” –affectionately portrayed by comedian Chris Rock.

        He had the one most memorable lines from the movie.

        As he sits with a contorted and tearful expression, he refers to his crack addiction by saying: “”…Its just keeps calling me…It keeps calling me…!” ” Looking back, that scene is really comical.

        Nostalgia is great.
