    This was my favorite video from the donation drive. Well, what I saw of it, anyway. Glad I can see the whole thing now.

    Bennett, I know this review is a little old, but have you considered doing any more like this? It was highly amusing!

    Wow. Interesting

    "Dolemite" is better than "Napoleon Dynamite".

    The boom mikes, etc. are only visible because you're watching the open matte
    version of the film. With the overpass on most televisions, you can't really see
    them.

    Great review, Bennett. And I really hope that you don't get any flack for using the N-word since you used it in context.

    Seriously, who puts "n*gger" in the title of a film, even a blaxploitation movie? That would be like Woody Allen titling a film "The Adventures of Hymie, the Neurotic K*ke" or... oh God, I hope I didn't give Woody Allen a new film idea.
  • houiostesmoiras
    A new idea? He's been doing that one for years. All you gave him was an idea for a title.
  • RuinerXXSinCity  - YEE HAW!
    The only power the word "Nigger" has is what it is given when people flip their shit over it. Just as an example the "nigger guy" episode of South Park. I remeber the following day on the news seeing all these white newscasters attempting to do something that can only be described as cause controversy by running around the streets of NYC. Only asking almost solely black citizens what they thought about the episode. You could tell they were disappointed since it seemed they were only able to find reasonable intelligent people with reasonable reactions. The majority of the comments were usually just statements that "No they didn't find it offensive, because it was clear they were confronting the word, and not the context of it's usage".

    Look I can understand why some of the people who fought through the Civil Rights era still have a huge problem with that particular word. Simply put it was used as a psychological weapon back in those days. However, I think it is important that as we move on into the future we need to instill into our youth that words said as racial slurs only have as much power as you the person hearing it allow it. I hate spouting such an old, and cliched saying but "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me" is till very applicable to this particular situation.


    Sage good stuff here, you certainly managed to spice this "film's" BS levels up with some well done humor. I certainly would enjoy seeing more of these if you felt inspired to make them.

    This is the first time I heard someone from TGWTG use the N word. At least it is for a whole different reason. But still Sage, you could be a bit more sensitive and just say something like N word Charlie. But I have to admit, some of these blaxploitation movies are tempting to watch especially Boss N-word
  • Seng
    Words are only considered vulgar by how they are used. Even Webster puts it that way.
  • RuinerXXSinCity
    Seriously I hope you take this as constructive criticism when I say to you GROW UP!Comments like these tend to telegraph that the person is extremely insecure with their personal beliefs on racial equality. The movies' titles are Nigger Charlie, and Boss Nigger so if anyone should be held accountable for being "insensitive" it should be the producers of the films, and not Sage for having the intelligence to realize he is not accountable for their choices on the titles. I know you meant well but in retrospect this logic is what continues to make a word such as "Nigger" much more powerful then it should ever be.

    FUCK YES DOLEMITE!!! i haven't seen Boss Nigger, but my friend has told me about it, and Truck Turner. I recently saw Black Dynamite, the movie is Amazing. Blaxplotation films, are great if you don't take most of them to a serious level they are great for a movie night with friends.
  • Nchick groupie
    Sage, as a black man, you are right in theory: Every thing you said was pretty much on the spot, but you must understand: This is DOLEMITE, lol. I am sorry, see my common sense says you are right, but for me to see any movie where a black guy gets over on the man is cool no matter how nonsensical, or how many boom mikes, or whatever bad acting there is. The presentation is beyond crappy, but for a young kid watching these movies, it just blinds you for looking at all of these things that you pointed out. Like Rudy Ray's rapping -- that is great stuff even though some would see it like you would. Anyway, like I said before, my common sense says you are right, but the young man in me who first saw this movie says -- wrong, you jive time mother f---er, lol.
    P.S. I will not give you flack on the n-word titles, they were named how they were named.

    You're not serious are you? I mean it's just the title of the movie, why shouldn't he say it??
    I don't get what the big deal is since words like n*gger should only be considered offensive when used to...umm i don't know... OFFEND someone! Besides, how do you usually refer to Inuit or native Americans? Think noone's offended by that?

    Anyway, very cool review B) Hope you do more of these!

    lol, dude ya gotta start reviewing more blaxploitation movies now

    You know what I found particularly weird? In Boss Nigger (one of my friends actually has the DVD), they censor the word "nigger." Even in the THEME SONG about the guy, you just hear "They call him Boss...Boss _____."

    Yeah, they just silence that part out. It's surreal, especially considering that the word is all over the case of the DVD, so it's not like you wouldn't have seen it coming.

    This movie is ludicrous and made of suck,
    who could possibly think this film is worth a fuck?

    XD Great to see the whole thing in full. This was hilarious when they were showing most of it during the donation drive and it's even better now that it's in full quality and none of that purple glitchy crap.

    You should review movies again sometime, this was comic gold.
  • Blizzard Jakkal
    Good thing that this movie has 40% on rottentomatoes.
  • shinigamiauthor  - dolamite ftw
    avatar
    heh. you forgot (or didnt know) to mention that dolamite later appeared as himself in the Insane Clown Posse movie "big money hustlas" which this highly inspired.
    yes.
    ive seen it.
    yes.
    its a guilty pleasure. sue me

    He's right, I've seen Big Money Hustla's too and it's actually entertaining despite the low budget stupidity but that's the comedy of it.

    Also The Late Rudy Ray Moore Died in 08 from diabetes at the age of 81.

    For more Info about Moore's other works and sequels (yes there was an unofficial Dolemite Sequel.) here's the link.

    I hope to see more reviews in the future, this was actually funny.

    Hahaha. You forgot the pointless and eternal sex scenes!

    The worst thing about this movie really has to be its editor.

    Yep, with some editing and better camera work it would been at least entertaining, well it was a bit and yes, I have seen the whole thing. :D

    fucking great video
  • Jonnyflash
    This movie look soooo bad. I could have made a better movie in my back yard with my home video camera and $20.
  • Herr Wozzeck
    What? There's a movie called "Boss Nigger"?

    Okay, now I know that there's a user somewhere on Fanfiction.net that [i]really[/i] needs to be shot not only for creating multiple accounts to spam a story he didn't like by an author that could write better than him, but doing so by stealing the name of a blaxploitation film for one of his usernames. (Said user used "Boss Nigger" as one of his usernames. At first I thought he was being offensive, but now that I know there's an actual blaxploitation film by that name, it just makes me angrier.)

    Anyhows, nice review, Bennet. I wonder how you survived watching this.
  • Omegatron666
    There is one movie title when it comes to blacksplo... (however it's spelled) movies that made me laugh the first time I saw it: "Gay Niggers From Outer Space".

    I never saw it though. I mean with a name like that, I'd be laughed upon forever if I actually saw such a movie.

    Anyway, awesome review Sage!
  • SomethingGerman  - PLEASE DEAR god!!!!
    avatar
    Please for heaven's sake, do more blaxploitation flicks :D
    I love Boss Nigger and I never knew it actually is a third movie in a series :D
    PLEASE we need to see this!

    I really do not get why the word 'nigger' has to be censored above all else. I know it is prejudiced but it is still only a word.

    Mayor McCheese? Is it possible to make Doug sing other Names like "Albert Einstein" or "Doctor Evil" or "Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn"?

    Btw. I like the video.
