Black Dynamite

"HAHA. I threw that shit before I walked in the room!"

Holy shit what a send-up of not just blaxploitation cinema, but 70's B-movies in general. Hits that perfect stride of lampooning action movie tropes by not having endless gags happen to random characters, but highlighting their traits to maximum, comedic effect.

Add Michael Jai White to the list of "Why aren't they a bigger deal?". Michelle was like "How have I seen Black Dynamite but you hadn't?" and the only answer I have for that is "Uhhh, I guess Letterboxd wasn't around in 2009 to make me aware of it?", but what's her excuse?
