5.0 out of 5 stars Willie oh Willie D Feb. 6 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Willie Dynamite is one of the best movies about Pimpin I have ever seen. I don't know if it is meant to be funny, but it is hilarious. The outfits, the hats, the car, and the walk all make Willie D one of the funniest characters I have ever seen. Two scenes in particular stick out. When he gets all seven of his girls out of jail and is leaving the court to his theme song, with the girls walking behind him. His strutt, and suit make it classic. Second when he "Pimp Jogs" down the stairs of the court house in his green suit with big fur, and fur hat to match. This movie is one of the best, when can I get it on dvd?

5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIOUS!! Sept. 14 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Probably the funniest scene in movie history is Willie walking down the courthouse steps in that green outfit, with fur cape and hat. The outfit is so outrageous (even by Seventies standards) that bystanders walking along the street during filming can't beleive their eyes. The actor playing Willie can barely keep a straight face.
Now Willie has reformed his ways, and is now Gordon on Seseme Street. I bet his old ...buddies sometimes drive by and give him a double-take:
"Willie?"
"Uh, no man. I'm Gordan."

5.0 out of 5 stars Willie is Dynamite March 10 2002
Format:VHS Tape
The best Blaxploitation and fictional pimp narrative I've ever seen. Of course, that's all terribly relative to the genre and time period. A "good" Blaxploitation film means it has a solid ENOUGH storyline and that the producers spent a little money on it to make it seem like an actual film. This one scores high on both counts, and you find yourself trying to figure out what could possibly happen next. And for a film made in 1973, it's surprisingly fresh.
The story starts off with our anti-hero, Willie Dynamite (who was the bald Black guy on Sesame Street. You'll never look at Oscar the Grouch the same again) under seige from all sides, as he is set upon by an old flame-turned-social worker, the cops, and a wickedly funny pimp named "Bell" (played by Roger Robinson) who wants to take Willie's dynamite hoes because he won't join the newly formed pimp organized front.
And my God, the outfits.
Willie sports some of the most outlandish stuff you've ever seen, and when he walks down a set of courthouse stairs, prepare to be rewinding the tape a few times.
To top it all off, it has a moralty play woven throughout that you both admire and despise: you dig it because it's cool to have a movie from that time with a moral, but without being preachy; you despise it because it can only mean the end of Willie, who, despite his lifestyle, you come to like. Or maybe it's the white fez with triple tassles. I'm not sure.
But while Willie is great, the character to watch for is Bell, who steals every scene he's in. He's the cat that does the speech that's clipped into "American Pimp" about vision, and it's even funnier when you have it in context.
A well-done farce that pushes all the right buttons, and a perfect movie to watch with a bunch of your wacky friends or REALLY cool family.

3.0 out of 5 stars Isn't it disturbing to see... Dec 11 2001
Format:VHS Tape
...Roscoe Orman playing a ruthless pimp.
For those who don't know, Orman is better known, by MILLIONS of children worldwide, as Gordon from SESAME STREET.
DISTURBING!!! LOL
