Dolemite Is My Name ★★★

“The truth is, ain't nobody been on a movie set before, so we don't know all that technical stuff like lights and sound and camera.”

For whatever reason, I think this film will end up being more popular than Mr. Church. Eddie Murphy and pals star in Dolemite Is My Name, the true story of Rudy Ray Moore, a man who was going nowhere fast until he pursued his dream of making a movie. Da'Vine Joy Randolph is outstanding in her performance as singer/actress Lady Reed.

Don't miss it, but also don't watch it with your grandma.
