Flicks: Avenging Disco Godfather (1980)


Disco Godfather: Bad-Ass Mofo by Day, DJ with hella bitchin' perm by Night.

"Put yo weight on it, put yo weight on it, put yo weight on it!" So proclaims former cop and current bad ass disco club owner, played by veteran blaxploitation actor Rudy Ray "Dolemite" Moore, who takes his fight against the evils of Angeldust to the greasy streets of New York City.

This is a pretty big reason why not to do angeldust, sucka.

This movie, like many b-movies, is so painfully bad that it becomes mesmerizingly hilarious. It's rumored that in 2008 Rudy Ray succame to a fatal brain hemorrage after screening this film for the first time in nearly 30 years. His last words?

"Put yo weight on it!"

So we will Rudy Ray, so we will.
