Filmwhys #65: Black Dynamite and Hancock
The Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is Adrian King from Adrian Has Issues who asks me why I hadn’t seen Black Dynamite, the pitch perfect send up of 70’s Blaxploitation films made in 2009 by Michael Jai White. And in return, I ask him why he hadn’t seen Hancock, the film where Will Smith plays Superman if he were a jerk who drank too much and didn’t remember who he was until he randomly found his wife who was also super powered but was hiding it all this time. It’s weird, but the first half works. Also a bonus to bring things back just a little bit to Black History month with a double shot of Black cinema even though Will Smith is the only Black character in Hancock.
