DVD: Black Dynamite
Looking for an amusing watch on one of these dark, cold January nights?
Bypass the lame Dinner for Schmucks (a kind of dinner party Dumb and Dumber that blunders about and fails to get the best out of Steve Carell) and go for this funny tribute to Shaft and other blaxploitation movies of the seventies.

Michael Jai White plays the fast-shooting, kung fu expert hero who gets mean after the murder of his brother.
With its bizarre fashions and afros, smooth soul songs and multitude of dated one-liners it whips along nicely, never taking itself too seriously.
