#35: Black Dynamite

October 28, 2009

blackdynamiteOkay, this is a bit unorthodox, because while I was seeing this movies, there were several wind-caused power outages in LA and after several interruptions, I ended up not even seeing the last 15 minutes of this film.  However, I was in the last showing of this movie ever at my local theater, so I guess I’ll have to wait till the DVD to see the rest!  Nevertheless, here’s the review:

So what’s it about?: Black Dynamite has found out that his brother has been killed and the orphanages have been filled with heroin and he is pissed!  Pimps and gangsters watch out, chaos be ensuin’.

The Good: Filmmakers apparently really like to spoof blaxploitation films, from Jackie Brown to Undercover Brother. But none of them is as awesome and outrageous as Black Dynamite.  This film is hilarious and completely bad ass at the same time.  Think Snakes on a Plane only 1) 100% intentional and 2) 100% better.  I haven’t laughed this hard in at a movie in a long time.  Scary/Disaster/Dance/Date/Epic Movie crew take note: This is how you make a spoof movie!

The Bad: The only bad was that I didn’t get to see it all!  But really, what bad can you say about a film that finds humor in its faults?

The Verdict: If you are lucky enough to live in a city showing this film, go and see it!  And college campuses be aware: this is a cult classic in the making.
