Soul Fixin'

Blaxploitation in 2009
A film co-starring Arsenio Hall, Tommy Davidson, & Kim Whitley automatically sounds like a dud. That doesn't appear to be the case with Black Dynamite. The blaxploitation spoof, starring Michael Jai White as Black Dynamite, has the qualities of a celebrated film. The film is set to premiere at the esteemed Sundance Film Festival and it will likely make it's way straight to DVD. According to the Black Dynamite website, "when “The Man” murders his brother, pumps heroin into local orphanages, and floods the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor, Black Dynamite is the one hero willing to fight all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House." Peep the trailer and let us know what you think.
