'Good idea! I haven't seen 'Dolemite' yet so, just based on the other two... hmmm, that's a tough choice because both kind of made me want to see what a horrendous movie is really like: I've seen several movies that, for example, I gave a "1" on IMDb and I can't imagine a film being worse but then I think of the movies of Wood and Wiseau and what I've heard of them and am interested in seeing one, perhaps in the same way people are compelled to look at really bad accidents. I'm not sure how I feel about having that inclination, lol.

Goodbadflicks has a great review of Dolemite. Helps the viewer of Dolemite Is My Name (2019) suss out which parts of Rudy Ray Moore's life and movie timeline were fictionalized for the Netflix film for narrative's sake.

Stephen Atwood, "Good Bad Flicks" is a legend! Just in case: here is his episode/review on IMDb, it deserves to be rated (and expanded, I guess: I do that from time to time, but I don't have enough time now to just sit and expand the IMDb pages for every single episode, there are hundreds of them; glad someone is adding every single episode on a quick notice, though.
