Rudy Ray Moore was the man, Dolemite rules!

Dolemite is one of my all time favorites and was one of the first blaxsploitation movies that I have seen. While the movie is super low budget and has a ton of flaws, Dolemite is one of the coolest films out there and I always have a great time watching this classic. Yes, the production value is terrible and the acting is really bad and Rudy Ray Moore could not fight his way out of a bathroom. But, Rudy has a unique persona and presence that demands attention and respect. Our hero and main man Dolemite was set up by a rival and imprisoned. He gets out of prison and with his stable of karate chopping call girls, he is on his path to revenge and street justice. Hustler, pimp, club owner and all around bad ass, Dolemite kicks ass and scores with the ladies. Lots of great lines from The Godfather Of Rap and the film went on to inspire generations of fans, film makers and musicians to come. Rudy Ray Moore was one of the coolest cats to ever live and Dolemite is one of his finest work. After watching Dolemite, I rented all the blaxsploitation movies that I could get my hands on, some of them were also great, others, not so great. But, Dolemite holds up and is essential viewing for the genre and one of the coolest movies ever made.

So Bad It's Wonderful

OK So I Have Never Seen This Movie But I Read Up On It ... Dolemite Is The Worse Blaxpoitation Movie Ever Made And That's What Makes It So Good ... Every Stereotype Is Stepped On In This Movie And Dolemite (Rudy Ray Moore) Is The Worse Looking Pimp Ever ... The Action Scenes Are A Joke But They Are Pretty (In One Scene Dolemite Knocks Out A Cop With Two Punches And A Kick Even Though None Of Them Landed ... The Man Does Have The Soul Of A Poetic Judging By His Two Rhymes In The Movie ("Shine & The Great Titanic" and "The Signifying Monkey" See Comments For Both Rhymes) Both Very Funny But Their Message Was Not Lost On These Ears ... From What I Read Rudy Ray Moore Hand Picked People Off The Street To Fill In Roles In The Movie, Many Of Them Not Knowing Till The Last Possible Moment What Their Roles Would Be ... In All This Madness And Chaos Rudy Ray Managed To Make A Movie (And Apparently 3 Sequels) That Have So Far Stood The Test Of Time ... Cult Classics Or Guilty Pleasure My Recommendation Is That You Check It Out ... Believe It Or Not As Bad As This Movie Is I Think I Will Watch The Next One (Guilty Pleasure) ...

Classic Blaxploitation, plus great hats

"Dolemite" was definitely not made for a "rat-soup-eatin', insecure honky MF" like me but I liked it anyway. The movie is a 'Blaxploitation classic' (which some people may consider an oxymoron) – it's hard to say what's worse: the acting or the karate fights, but it's also hard to say what's better: the pimp suits or the funk. I find it amusing that these extremely crude, subversive, counterculture movies now show up, unedited, on TV Turner Classic Movies – it's like seeing poisonous snakes in a display case at a petting zoo. Times have certainly changed. Worth watching for its own sake as well as from a cultural history perspective, as a lot of modern comedy and rap culture are rooted in movies like this.
