Wendy's Films of 2010 #50: Disco Godfather (1979)

Heck yes. That's what I thought as Disco Godfather opened to a nightclub playing wicked tunes and I nearly got up to dance (I may or may not have actually danced alone in front of my television.) This is the kind of movie awesome where even the doctors wear sunglasses inside.

Trouble starts when DJ Tucker Williams - the Disco Godfather - finds himself in the middle of a psychedelic drug epidemic that threatens to ruin his groove. So he takes to the streets on a mission to "Attack the Wack!" including a wicked smooth wack attack montage, where he and his gang take down dealers and get the info they need to take down the drug lord and his angel dust.

This film has a whole lot of awesome and bad-awesome; I find it hilarious that practically every single white actor can't act and that fight scenes often include pseudo martial arts. Also, who wouldn't want to watch a film starring an actress named Carol Speed?

Drinking game idea: take a shot every time the Disco Godfather says "Put your weight on it!" You'll be wasted before anyone even mentions angel dust.

To go: 294 days, 315 films.
