Dolemite Is My Name

Dolemite Is My Name ★★★★

I'm not sure I'd even heard of Rudy Ray Moore or Dolemite before Netflix announced this but luckily both the 1975 film Dolemite and the 1976 sequel The Human Tornado are on Amazon Prime so I decided to make a sort of trilogy of it, and I'm glad I did.

Without the context of these films this would still be a very entertaining and heartwarming comedy biopic with a good cast and great central performance from Eddie Murphy. However, having just watched them, they really elevated it and added to the fun (and probably added a star to my rating).
