When John Singleton's Shaft came out in 2000 it was one of the first films i was stoked to see in a film savvy sort of way, having been a fan of the originals. I grew up on blaxploitation so i was almost 13 and stoked to see it, i liked it, but i didn't love it. It didn't feel authentic enough. The new version with three Shafts is the Shaft film i have been wanting to see for years. It feels genuine, it has commentary, it is stylish, it is violent, it is funny, and the cast is having a blast. I went in with low expectations but this is one of the most fun flicks i have seen in theatres this year.
