Tone[edit]

Does anyone else think this reads like a sensationalist essay? --Mûĸĸâĸûĸâĸû (blah?) 08:17, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Much of the material it surveys is sensationalist—that's what exploitation movies are—so that may be affecting your perception of the article's tone. But let's see. Would you please quote us a couple of passages that you find "sensationalist"?—DCGeist (talk) 09:20, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
The tone isn't neutral or encyclopedic at all. It's informative, but it's essentially editorial. "Blaxploitation. Zombies. Mafiosi. A catchy theme song, "Supernatural Voodoo Woman." And Marki Bey as Sugar herself, hair "relaxed" by day, afroed by night. AIP's Sugar Hill (1974) is an exploitation era example of a Gesamtkunstwerk, a "complete artwork."" This isn't tone neutral or in the prescribed style at all and honestly I wouldn't be surprised if it was originally copy-pasted from another website. --Pathogen (talk) 16:34, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
It wasn't. I wrote it. Before you accuse fellow Wikipedians of plagiarism, do some research.—DCGeist (talk) 23:26, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
