Obviously this isn’t horror but I watched it on a recommendation from the Neon Brainiacs podcast and oh my god this movie was just as funny as it was great. I can’t recommend it enough. Eddie Murphy in his return to rated R comedy is nothing short of amazing. As funny as he is in this he also brings a wholesome tender feel to the Dolemite character and role you can’t help but love. Wesley Snipes was unexpectedly great in this too as D’Urville Martin. The pace was great. Characters and casting was great. The laughs didn’t seem to stop coming. Even if you know nothing of Dolemite you will learn quickly about him and his struggles, along with finding a new favorite cheer for instead of another fuckin Marvel character movie. 

Standout moment is the shooting of the sex scene. That alone is worth checking this movie out. 

Dolemite gets 3 1/2 high fives out of 5
Possibly even 3 3/4 haha
