Dope

No, not the drug…essentially. Dope, a film directed by Rick Famuyima  and produced by Forest Whitaker and Nina Bongiovi. Including Pharrell Williams and Sean Combs cutting in on production as well. This film is perhaps one of the greatest in its time (in my opinion) and out of time. The film follows Malcolm Adekanbi (Shameik Moore), an intellectual young black teen who dreams of Harvard, Jib (Tony Revolori) the right hand man, and Diggy their lesbian companion (Kiersey Clemons). Three high-school friends who came to be over a love of the 90’s hip-hop culture, things that might be considered “nerdy”, and their very own band “Awreeoh”. As though living day to day in “the bottoms” of Inglewood, California was not hard enough, with daily beatings, robbing, murders, and even a full body scanner and drug sniffing dog greeting you everyday at school try loosing a shoe to gang members then still having to bike past them on the way home. But instead to avoid confrontation you ride past the dope dealers. And that’s just what Malcolm, Jib, and Diggy did. Now that’s how it all started… Continue reading “Dope”

Land Ho!

So I recently watched a film entitled “Land Ho!” (I know what you’re thinking why is a teenager watching a movie with two old men on the poster). But the movie was not only funny but it shone a light on the phrase “young at heart”. The movie follows two older gentlemen by the names of Collin (Paul Eenhoorn) and Mitch (Earl Lynn Nelson) as they take a trip to Iceland. Surprisingly the two were as lively as ever. Although Collin maybe a bit skeptical at times, he had no problem with a younger woman “tickling his fancy” or going pant-less into a lake of questionable depth. While Mitch on the other hand, was pretty much game for anything. Whether he was in a club full of twenty year olds, enjoying the occasional blunt, or relaxing in hot springs alongside Collin. Both characters disapproved the “old and feebleness” of the elderly. This movie not only showed me how beautiful Iceland is but age is truly no match for the young at heart.
