“So grab hold of your seats, and hold on tight, as I tell you a story… about Black Dynamite!”

Okay, it hasn’t been the happiest time on the blog of late – but here’s something that made me smile – a trailer for a wonderfully observed slice of low-budget Blaxploitation mayhem entitled ‘Black Dynamite’ – it’s showing at the Sundance Film Festival right now, it’s getting rather good write-ups, and for anyone who’s ever watched a trashy movie from the Seventies, it looks a whole barrel-load of fun (as well as potentially a much more accurate version of ‘Grindhouse’ cinema than what Rodriguez and Tarantino spent nearly $100 million on, and for only a tiny fraction of the cost). Of course, it might be the kind of thing where all the good bits are in the trailer, but I’m looking forward to it already, if only for the fantastically ludicrous plot description:

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.

Strap on your sideburns, and enjoy…
