Review

Initial Thought: At first glance I honestly wasn't truly excited about it. I mean it sounded interesting, but it didn't have my full attention. Then I saw the trailer and it looked like a fun ride. With the trailer and many people telling me how great it was I decided it was time. Also when I was a baby my parents lived in Inglewood for about 18 months. So it really is interesting to see how life ... read more

A good movie

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be pretty neat, that’s for sure. First of all, I have noticed that many viewers considered it as a coming-of-age story which was maybe the case but I thought it gave above all a very interesting look on the hood genre. Indeed, the best movies in this genre like ‘... read more

Dope

3 years, 6 months ago at Aug 19 22:49
While Dope can’t quite overcome the genre conventions of a coming-of-age film, it at least adds some new wrinkles to the formula by giving the point-of-view to a trio of characters frequently regulated to the quirky best friend in other teen films. Not only that, but it’s got a generally killer soundtrack and a vibe that feels refreshingly unique and distinct even when it feels like it’s ove... read more

Malcolm is a high school geek with a high-top fade, carefully navigating life in The Bottoms, one of the toughest neighborhoods in Inglewood, California. He and his fellow outcasts share a voracious appreciation for all things '90s hip-hop, opting to sport Cross-Colours and Z. Cavariccis at the risk of being clowned at school. He dreams of attending Harvard, but first he has to make it home every day. When a drug dealer takes a shine to Malcolm and invites him to his birthday party, Malcolm’s crew is swirled into a hilarious blender of offbeat characters and bad choices where redemption can only be found in Bitcoin.

"Re-watch - June 1st Given the present state of race relations in America I wanted to kick off the month with some films that are excellent representations of the current moment. Actually, I was going to watch these two films and The Hate U Give during work, but I got pulled off my first-of-the-month project and had to bow out of my triple feature. So I made it a double. It's been four years since I last watched Dope, and I enjoyed it every bit as much the second time around. The characters ar"

"Después de haber visto Straight Outta Compton pensé que esos eran tiempos difíciles y que ya había cambiado, no estaba mas equivocado esta pelicula muestra que nunca cambio que siempre estuvo ahí esperando las malas decisiones de un geek para volcar su vida y hacerlo cuestionar quién es, pero al final del día el geek tuvo la respuesta de él mismo y vio que ese no es su camino el era mas que eso aunque se moviera entre los dos mundos. Puntos a mencionar es el sountrack constante de la pel"

Dope

“While Dope can’t quite overcome the genre conventions of a coming-of-age film, it at least adds some new wrinkles to the formula by giving the point-of-view to a trio of characters frequently regulated to the quirky best friend in other teen films. Not only that, but it’s got a generally killer soundtrack and a vibe that feels refreshingly unique and distinct even when it feels like it’s overreaching, which is often. Then again, too much ambition is better than none at all.   Yes, there’s something of a mixed bag of genres and styles buttressing against each other for dominance and screen time, and I can understand how that would be a demerit for several people. Hell, at times even I wondered where exactly it was trying to place its emphasis and where it was trying to go, but I ” read more

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be pretty neat, that’s for sure. First of all, I have noticed that many viewers considered it as a coming-of-age story which was maybe the case but I thought it gave above all a very interesting look on the hood genre. Indeed, the best movies in this genre like ‘Boyz n the Hood’ or ‘Menace II Society’ were quite impressive but also terribly bleak and even rather depressing. Here, Rick Famuyiwa went back to this genre but managed somehow to remove its typical dreary mood and made something that was entertaining and fun but still really realistic and compelling to watch. Seriously, the whole thing was really well done and subtle and it is hard to beli” read more
