Consisently hilarious and inventive spoof

"We heard about your brother's death and we don't want you running around turning the streets into rivers of blood."

The idiots responsible for Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans and Disaster Movie should be abducted and forced to watch Black Dynamite so they can see how a good spoof movie is done! While recent spoofs have focused on mimicking familiar film scenes or ripping ... read more

As posted on Hijinks Inc. Please visit our site and tell us what you think!

Black Dynamite embodies everything that was great about the blaxploitation 1970's cinema. However, it also relishes all the flaws of 1970's cinema, and laughs with us all the way till the end. The film was released on October 16, 2009, in the United States, for only two weeks, and was released on home video ... read more

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. Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight) stars as BLACK DYNAMITE, a gun-toting, nunchuck-wielding, ladies man and soul brother. Written and directed by Scott Sanders (Thick as Thieves), BLACK DYNAMITE also stars Tommy Davidson, Nicole Sullivan, Bokeem Woodbine, Arsenio Hall and John Salley.
Release date: 13 January 2010

My biggest disappointments in entertainment (110 tv items)

"Another beloved action movie, and a super funny satire too, or so people say. It accomplished what it was going for so it is a good movie, as for me, I laughed once and fell asleep thrice while watching it. I liked Zombieland from the same year and Tropic Thunder from the year before much much more, after this, I'm not interested in watching the tv series."

"13.2 Samaan aikaan sekä parodia että nostalginen kunnianosoitus 70-luvun blaxploitaatiolle. En ole tutustunut oikeastaan yhtään alan esikuviin ja Shaft sekä Superfly ovat vieläkin näkemättä, mutta ei tästä nauttiminen vaadi sen kummempaa taustatutkimusta. Se että tietää blaxploitaation alagenrenä ja mitä se pitää sisällään riittänee tässä tapauksessa. Erittäin napakka pätkä, joka ei käy missään vaiheessa tylsäksi tai ylipitkäksi. Puolitoista tuntia turpaan elokuv"

10 Movies That Should Be Video Games (10 movies items)

"The movie is hilarious and is a perfect parody of blaxploitation movies. A game could take an outrageous character like Black Dynamite and further incorporate a lot of the fun elements of the genre into a game. Beating down bad guys with kung fu or getting into crazy shootouts would be a blast. I think more than anything the amount of zany characters you would interact with would be fun as hell. Also, if there is a boss battle involving President Nixon then it would be one of the greatest games "

"Oikein mukavaa blaxploitaatiota. Pastissiksikin joku voisi tätä sanoa, koska tunnelma on saatu hyvin 70-lukulaiseksi."
