I’m Gonna Git You Sucka½

(Comcast Free Movies) Surprisingly sweet-tempered, often funny sendup of blaxploitation films, loaded with sight gags and appearances by Isaac Hayes, Jim Brown, and Bernie Casey. (R; runs through Oct. 14)

Reservoir Dogs

(Showtime on Comcast) The bad guys are holed up in a warehouse after the big job, hoping they won’t all go down and trying to root out the turncoat in their midst. Meaning this is an actor’s playground (for Lawrence Tierney, Christopher Penn, Steve Buscemi, Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, and Tim Roth), with lots of chances to fly operatically off the handle. But even if artifice is as big a component as adrenaline, director Quentin Tarantino brings off this exercise in lively fashion. (R; runs through Oct. 15)

Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man½

(Comcast Free Movies) Don Johnson and Mickey Rourke have fun with their roles as born-to-be-wild aging drifters, a cowboy and a biker, respectively. A rowdy good time, marred only by some stale cliches and bad dialogue. (R; runs through Oct. 31)
