Okay, so last Friday I was lucky enough to make a midnight screening of "Black Dynamite," at the Inwood Theater in Dallas, Texas.
Although the film has been out on DVD and Blu-Ray for several weeks, the theater seemed like a better way to experience this "bad assss" homage to the blaxploitation films of the 1970’s. The theater was recently refurbished, replacing standard movie theater chairs with couches and beanbags...and by recently, I mean that I was actually able to find for me and my bitches a comfy beanbag that hadn't yet been stained by delicious fruity sodas or other fluids of the night! (How perfect fo' this flick.)
"Black Dynamite" was fan-fuckin-tastic! It knocked out my two front teeth with a roundhouse kick of black fury! From start to finish, this mother fuckin' kung-fu flick never let up on the action or comedy! The constant jump-cuts, the frame penetrating shotgun mic’s, and the characters (Crème Corn, Sweetmeat, and my personal favorite: Tasty Freeze) made this movie feel like an ACTUAL blaxploitation film. And, of course, "Black Dynamite" is filled with memorable dialogue that kind of sticks:
"Fiendish Doctor Wu! You done fucked up now!" and "You diabolical dick shrinkin’ mother fuckers!" just to name a couple that I'll be sure to be repeating for quite some time...and most definitely to be read in some of my future blog postings, when there's just no other way to express what I'm saying.
So, the next day after seeing the movie, I found myself at the rental store trying to find a copy of "Black Dynamite." Sadly, all of the copies had been rented, and I was forced to go home Black Dynamite-less wearing a big frown on my face. (Hopefully, with the success of this movie there might be a sequel to continue the amazing adventure of Black Dynamite).
If you haven’t seen "Black Dynamite" yet, please do so. Once you do, your movie collection will not only grow by 1, but you'll be satisfied knowing that America has been made just that much more bad ass.
