You think you bad, you think you got class?

I first saw Dolemite after a friend noted that the movie was on Movie Madness' Top Ten Movies of All Time. Or at least one of their lists. The plot and shooting are standard blaxploitation, but the movie is set apart by Rudy Ray Moore, self professed dirty comic. He is one of the most ridiculous people you will ever see. He was a sort of proto rapper famous for his bizarre rhymes, which you can listen to here. I am thrilled to see he is currently on tour, but no PDX shows as of yet. If you have a bent sense of humor you will like this guy, unless of course you are, as Rudy would say, a rat soup eatin' honky muthafucka. Then you should probably give it a pass.
