The lights are on
No, not in the realm of Fargo.
I'm talking BLACK DYNAMITE! Let me give you a moment to watch the trailer...
Ready? Okay, let's carry on.
I want to see this movie so much! RottenTomatoes consensus was something along the lines of this exactly: "A loving and meticulous send-up of 1970s blaxsploitation movies, Black Dynamite is funny enough for the frat house and clever enough for film buffs".
While I lean towards the latter, I can appreciate the former just as well, especially since it indicates the film doesn't try to go to far above what they're trying to do. Concept is brilliant, but the trailer proves execution to be just as good.
Too bad the nearest showing is about 300 miles away...
For sale: baby shoes, never worn.
I was in for dark comedies.
Now I'm out.
