Black Dynamite

    5 June 2015, early morning

I finally watched Black Dynamite. My coworker had the film on Blu-Ray. It’s a parody / homage to blacksploitation films from the 70s. I chuckled here and there, but it wasn’t as laugh out loud funny as I thought it would be. There is still lots to love here, though. The plot is an ever escalating mash up of plot points you’d expect to see in a 70s era blacksploitation flick: Black Dynamite needs to avenge his brother, Black Dynamite needs to get crack off the streets, Black Dynamite needs to fight a villainous Kung Fu super villain. All in all it was an enjoyable film. Michael Jae White is pretty great in the lead role.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
