DOPE

Courtesy of Smartflix – the true love of my life. DOPE = good Sunday night movie, although the fantasy becomes a farce and the movie resembles blackpeopletwitter, a bricolage of memes and music – something OFWGKTA would think up if they were old enough and gave a fuck (which is ironic because the movie is […]

The first category includes movies like “Beverly Hills Cop,” “Meet the Parents,” “Manhattan” and “The Hangover”; the second includes movies like “Austin Powers,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Bananas” and “Airplane!” The primary distinction lies in their respective relationship to reality. In character-driven comedies, […]

Belly

Incredible visuals, bad film. Hype Williams should stick to music, and yet I was intrigued. Very intrigued. Belly (1998) – IMDb.
