Posse (1993)

Director: Mario Van Peebles
Starring: Mario Van Peebles, Billy Zane, Tiny Lister
Budget: $8.5m
Box Office: $18m

Plot: A fun shoot-em-up western with a serious agenda: writer / director / star Van Peebles wanted his follow-up to New Jack City to address Hollywood’s whitewashing of the history of the American West, reminding everyone that African-Americans were there too. Van Peebles plays Jessie Lee, on a mission to avenge himself against the men who lynched his inspirational father. Blaxploitation legends like Pam Grier, Isaac Hayes and Mario’s father Melvin Van Peebles crop up in the cast, as does veteran western legend Woody Strode.

Posse 2 (1997)

Director: Jean-Marc Vallee
Starring: Mario Van Peebles, Rene Auberjonois, Danny Trejo

Plot: A completely separate, entirely standalone film (in a more spaghetti style than its predecessor), this should properly be called Los Locos. Marketing people, however, saw fit to saddle it with the Posse 2 moniker because it’s a western with Mario Van Peebles in it. The story this time has quiet echoes of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (and louder ones of The Dream Team), and sees Van Peebles’ drifter character hired to escort a group of crazies across the desert. The US variation of the title was Los Locos: Posse Rides Again, despite this particular posse never having ridden anywhere before.

You've obviously never been tortured... not that I have but I can imagine it would be more painful than clicking a button. More

23 Why the clicking?
Why do you think people will click through 40 pages loading? It would be much less annoying to have it as a scrolled list down a few pages. Gave up clicking at 11. Torturous. More
