Vinegar Syndrome busts out DOLEMITE (review)

Vinegar Syndrome restores Rudy Ray Moore's iconic Blaxploitation film DOLEMITE for Blu-ray/DVD combo release.  Framed by the cops and sentenced to hard time, pimp Dolemite is sprung by his partner Queen Bee and the prison warden to discover who is behind the crime wave afflicting his old neighborhood.  No sooner is he out of prison than the cops and the henchmen of competing pimp Willie Green are trying to kill him.  Dolemite, however, is more than ready with his army of Kung-Fu fighting prostitutes to help him take back what's his.
