First secret screening!

Thanks to the free beer available, everyone knew it would be something from Netflix. Of all the options, I'm happy we got to see this because it's a movie I was actually looking forward to seeing and feel like it played great with an audience. I like Rudy Ray Moore, Dolemite, and movies about making movies so this is right up my alley. I thought of it as a more enjoyable version of Badaaaassss! (that movie about the making of Sweet Sweetback's Badaaass Song). Eddie Murphy's great, the script is great, Craig Brewer did a good job making it, the music's great, most of the matching shots look very close to my memory of the original film. It put me in a mood to revisit the first two Dolemite films for sure.

Really it was a highlight of the fest. The movie is so celebratory, it just makes you feel good. You feel like you're hanging out with friends watching them succeed. Good times.
