Dope: Reasons why to watch this movie this Fourth of July Weekend

Besides a noun describing many forms of drugs or a stupid person. Dope can also be used as an adjective describing something or someone is “Dope,” which the movie Dope is, starring up and coming actor, Shameik Moore, who plays Malcom, a geeky high school senior from “The Bottoms” aka Inglewood that is different from his peers because he’s in love with 90’s hip-hop and wants to get out if the hood because he wants to make something out of his life, which his friends are the same way. Tony Revolori from The Grand Budapest Hotel and Kiersey Clemons are part of his click, who just want to check out vinyl records from the 90’s and play hip-hop punk in their band, which is affectionately called Oreo. Malcolm has his life planned out as he tries to get out of the hood trying to go to Harvard but like all things fate steps in to challenge our resolve. 

He gets invited to a party because he wanted to hook up with uber hot Zoe Kravitz but gets caught up with the “dope game” as A$AP Rocky puts dope aka drugs in his backpack, which is not dope. This begins a “slippery slope” situation with Malcolm and his friends because now he wants to get rid of the dope but is forced to sell it like one of his peers from the hood. Malcom gets caught up with all the bullshit he always avoided growing up in the hood but now he has to make a choice whether or not he’s part of the hood or is he much more than his environment, which makes for a good movie. Can a person survive a bad environment and still succeed with tons of adversities in his way? Can a person be a geek and a thug at the same time? This is one reason why you should watch Dope because it raises the question: Are you a product of your environment or is the environment the product of you? 

If you still don”t think Dope is a movie you should watch this Fourth of July weekend, check out our reasons why you should see this movie asap Rocky!

  • The Nerdy Virgin

First off, who doesn’t like a coming of age movie, where our hero is completely hopeless because he’s such a nerd and dork. You want the universe to help them out to get laid because they are so lovable. You want them to stop jerking off to twerk videos.

  • Dope Ass 90s music

Tupac, Biggie & Nas. Do I even need to explain why the 90s had the best hip-hop music ever produced. I was super glad that I grew up on it, which shaped a lot of my creative ideas including with many other well-known artists. So, hearing all those songs from my childhood brings back fond memories like the 2 Live Crew’s Me So Horny and Pop that Puxxy.

  • Chanel Iman, Zoe Kravitz, Kimberly Elise

Look them up. One of the best reasons to check this movie because of these gorgeous women of color, who are also smart and amazing actresses.

  • Your choice of movies this weekend SUCK:

What are your choices this weekend? An unfunny children’s cartoon, a softcore gay porn and a remake of an old sci-fi franchise. Be different this weekend by choosing a movie with heart, don’t be entertained with cheap thrills because you deserve better.

  • You deserve better.

Throughout the whole movie every character is stereotyped and pigeon holed just because of what they look like or where they are from, which the characters fight against on who they really are and what society wants them to be. It’s all about personal identity, finding out who you really are despite of your environment. As our lead character tells us in the movie to Zoe Kravitz’s character that she deserves better and don’t sell herself short. I believe this the main philosophy or vibe I got from this movie, which is despite of difficult circumstances or if your environment is not nurturing, you can still succeed. You deserve better than the current cards that you were dealt. Never sell yourself short because you were meant for MORE.

You deserve better.

You should watch Dope because you deserve better.

If you are going to watch a movie besides Dope, check out Jurassic World. Here’s our review on it: Jurassic World: Everyone Dies

Intelligence Team by Ryan Fu (Happy Independence Day!!!)

“I’m never drinking again,” said Seth.

As we tried to get our shit together after another night of debauchery with the crew inside C.I.C (Combat Intelligence Central) still pretty drunk from the night before. Good thing C.I.C was a dark place with the latest high-tech gadgets monitoring terrorist activities around the world but I was just super glad there wasn’t any bright lights to show any incriminating evidence on our faces.

“Seth, do you have a black eye?”

 “What? When the hell did that happen.”

“It was probably when you got punch by that gay Arabian guy at that super gay club,” said Skuba. 

“What?” from a very confused Seth.

“Listen. I did want tell you but when you get black out drunk you kinda turn gay, which is cool, I mean we don’t ask but don’t tell anyone.”

“Yeah, you pulled us into this real dark club with bunch of Arabian dudes making out then you got into fight with this really hairy dude with his shirt off talking about marrying his camel or something,” said Skuba as he was eating a bag of tuna.

“What the fuck?” said Seth. 

“Oh yeah, I remember now it was right after we got kicked out of our hotel because we trashed our whole floor.” 

“Are you sure it wasn’t after we started a fight with those Army cunts at Planet Hollywood,” asking Skuba.

“Wild Turkey should be banned from public consumption,” said Seth having a look of regret.

“Why the hell are you eating that bag of tuna?” Looking at Skuba.

“Because dolphins are smart and it’s making me smarter,” confidently said by Skuba.

1033_dolphin500px

 “You do realize Dolphins don’t eat themselves,” as Seth eats a bag of oats trying to put some kinda of food down his stomach.

 “Is that why you’re eating that bag of oats?” I ask Seth.

“Of course not. I’m a thoroughbred. I need oats to feel strong,” stuffing half a bag of oats without water down his mouth.

“Duh asshole. I’m a dolphin, Seth is a horse and you’re an asshole,” said Skuba eating his bag of tuna.

What the fuck is the matter with us as I thought looking my crew inside Combat Intelligence Central, which at the current moment the most intelligent thing about the room was all those expensive machines and certainly not the monkeys working on them.

“Alright stop with the tomfoolery,” shouted the Captain as he stepped into C.I.C as we stand in attention. Our cap was a former linebacker for “The” Ohio State University, which he was still big as a fridge and still aggressive as fuck. I respected him a lot but I could not shake off his Tom Selleck mustache. I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame, which I kept thinking what he would like in a Hawaiian shirt?

“Listen boys, these men are our high target priorities for this month. Please study these faces because they are Axes of Evil.”

As the Captain put up America’s Most Wanted on the War Board, I just kept thinking he’s perfect man for this post because we are a bunch of babies, who need a spanking but I just wished Steve Guttenberg was here to help us out. Fuck Ted Danson! 

“Your job men is explore, identity, evaluate, implement then execute. We are the architects that plan out the master plan then we execute putting the hammer down!”

We stand in attention again after that motivating speech as the Captain leaves C.I.C.

“You guys know what the hell Her Alibi was talking about,” asking Skuba.

“I think he was telling us get more tuna and oats at the commissary, then get some ice cream,” as Seth throws up his oats at the nearest trash can.

“I’m never drinking again,” said Seth holding the trashcan like his baby.

Animals are Better than Humans – They’re better Wingmen

a

A crow has been caught catching a ride on the back of a bald eagle in mid-flight. The cheeky ride was captured by amateur photographer Phoo Chan in Seaback, Washington. “It was as if it was taking a short break and at the same time a free ride. What’s more surprising was the eagle didn’t seem to mind and kept flying as if nothing happened,” MailOnline quotes Chan as saying.

ad_174005073 ad_174005094

“I think the crow decided to land on the eagle because the eagle did not respond to its harassment so it landed briefly and then left. Eventually the crow flew away and the eagle continued to hunt for its breakfast.”

Chan said the birds went off in different directions but reckons that after their brief encounter they had become friends.

Fu’s Politically Incorrect Review of Mr. Robot – Why you should watch it? (Security is a Myth)

2

mrrobotreg-700x400

WRITTEN BY RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

Mr. Robot Review – Episode 1: Hello Friend

Security is a Myth

Mr. Robot follows a mysterious anarchist, who recruits a young computer programmer played Rami Malek, who suffers from an anti-social disorder and connects to people by hacking them. I saw the mysterious trailers on the USA network, which I was immediately I interested with the concept of a computer hacker but then again I am a sucker for any computer and tech shows like Halt and Catch Fire or Silicon Valley. (Check our review for Season 2 Halt and Catch Fire But Mr. Robot had a totally different flavor and style.

I totally stumbled upon on the show by accident because I thought it would airing in the middle of summer but there it was on tv and Malek was in the middle of his speech, 

“There’s a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I’m talking about the guys no one knows about. They guys who are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%. The guys that play God without permission. And now I think they’re following me.”

I was totally intrigued plus I liked that fact that he was a bit of a schizo in a cool Memento kind a way. I also like that he’s a high functioning morphine addict. He gets his rocks off and still manages to hold a 9 to 5 job as a programmer at E Corp aka Evil Corp, the huge corporate conglomerate that has its hooks on everything in the business world. When he’s not getting high or trying to stay awake at his job, he’s a nighttime vigilante taking child pornographers or unfaithful husbands off the streets by blackmailing the sinners with evidence of their own evil doings.

MR. ROBOT — “Pilot” Episode 101 — Pictured: (l-r) Rami Malek as Elliot, Christian Slater as Mr. Robot — (Photo by: David Giesbrecht/USA Network)

Another reason to watch the show is for the great Christian Slater, who actually plays the mysterious Mr. Robot, who is the leader of this new underground hacker group called F Society. He’s great in every scene he’s in, which he brings comedic levity in a show that has a very serious tone. Another character that adds to the appeal to the show is the beautiful Portia Doubleday, who plays Angela Moss, Malek’s co-worker and love interest. Her character is kinda boring but her being hot makes up for it. 

I would totally recommend this show because it’s show about the 99%. It’s David taking on Goliath, it’s Elliot taking on Evil Corp. You want to see the rich guys, who feed on the poor go down with the ship. But the cool thing about the show is that Rami is not your typical hero, he’s more of an anti-hero, which I l empathize with because I like characters who are torn between who they are and who they want to be. This show is more than coding, spreadsheets and business takeovers, its more alive than its title. The show has heart underneath its steel message of not trusting the system. It shows us that we should take more stock in ourselves and use less technology in our daily lives because it’s making us more vulnerable as all our information is out there for anywhere can view and steal. You can have the best security in the world, but if someone really wanted to steal your information, it would be relatively easy. Let’s face it, security is a myth.

Watch this show cause it’s entertaining and you might learn how to protect yourself better from being hacked having your personal information compromised. Next thing you know you’ll be in the market trying to pay for groceries but you can’t because your funds have been drained and someone changed your information into a 14-year old girl from Kansas buying thousands of dollars of cosmetics at Sephora and having an e-mail blast on the current updates of the Kardashians. If you’re not scared, you should be because this isn’t the Matrix and Neo is not coming to save you when your information gets stolen.

Mr.Robot” is on every Wednesday at 10 p.m. on the USA Network

I fucking hate everyone here.

This whole city

can go to hell.

These old money,

trust fund fucks

with their lip injection

fake smiles.

More evil than

Jabba the Hut

with their botox shots,

treating everyone like cunts.

These men with their

power suits,

power lunches,

money is power types.

Guarded

&

protected by

high walls with racists pigs,

which even Mr. Orwell

would’ve been horrified with.

Keep hiding behind

your glass houses.

Cause I see through you,

I see all your cracks.

When the “Big One” hits

I hope it strikes here first,

swallowing this whole place

back down to hell.

If there is any justice left in the world,

it will happen.

If not, I’ll just keep

praying to Satan.

Case of the Mondays – Do you have Bitchy Resting Face?

12

MTI0OTU0MjgwNzk1ODcwNDgy

What is Bitchy Resting Face? Urban Dictionary describes it as a bitchy alternative to the usual blank look most people have. This is a condition affecting the facial muscles, suffered by millions of women worldwide. People suffering from bitchy resting face (BRF) have the tendency look hostile and/or judgemental at rest. Their expression does not necessarily reflect how they are feeling inside. BRF can ruin friendships and first impressions, start fights and kill an atmosphere.

“I think Deborah hates me!!”, “Nah don’t worry Susie, she just has a nasty bitchy resting face”

“That customer just lectured me on customer service and threatened to take her business elsewhere! What did I do wrong?” “Prob just your BRF”.

True Detective – Episode 2 (Night Finds You) – Now is His Watch is Ended

jon-snow-269x300colin-farrell

WRITTEN BY RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

True Detective – Night Finds You

(Spoiler Alert) Jon Snow is still DEAD

First off, wow!!! Un-fucking believable!

This is probably the first time I’ll ever say this on a review but if you haven’t seen the episode, then don’t read this article because it will ruin your night or at the very least blow your fucking mind.

In the last episode of Three’s Company they find Mr. Roper’s body aka Casper on a bench, which he is dead as a ghost. Back at the office each law enforcement agency wants a piece of this investigation because each side has something riding on it. So, they have Ani (Rachel McAdams) be on point while Ray (Colin Farrell) is second on the case. I was very fascinated on the pairing between Rachel and Colin because both of them are equally good at what they do but both are equally fucked up. The dynamic duo lived up to my expectations as they were in the car having a contest on who was more “fucked up,” which believe it was a tie because Ray wasn’t going to get “Father of Year” as his wife is trying to get sole custody of his kid because of the tiny incident with kid, who bullied his son and Ani wasn’t going to get nominated at all for “Daughter of the Year” because of her hatred of her father and her porn obsession. I seriously thought this was the beginning of yet another beautifully fucked up relationship but as we get to the end, it’s more fucked up then Taylor Kitsch’s character.

In the jurisdiction nonsense for Casper’s investigation, Taylor’s character Paul Woodrugh gets an opportunity to prove himself once again trying to desperately get back to the CHP because without his job, his life is miserable. As we see with his unemployed white trash mom and his unempathetic whiny girlfriend, who wants to be in a normal relationship because she doesn’t get that he’s been in through some tough shit when he was in the service. Paul is not ready to share that part of himself with her because it’s too dark and evil, which he might just hate that part of himself even though it was one of the the reasons why it helped him get through those tough situations. But Paul doesn’t want to think about that and just wants to focus on his job because without it his life begins to unravel as we can see with Vince Vaughn character Frank Semyon.

In the beginning of the episode, Frank is having a midlife crisis in the early morning with his wife, Kissed by Fire played by the beautiful Kelly Reilly. We see how Frank became the man he is now with his papier-mâché story about his alcoholic father locking him down in the basement for a week as the rats try to eat him.

“It’s all papier-mâché.”

Or is it about all about the money? As we find out that with Casper’s death left Frank a very sizeable debt, which puts him in jeopardy with his bigger plan. But Frank is a man of will and he didn’t get to where he is in life by sitting on the sidelines as he puts it so eloquently,

“I’ll get it back. Every time.”

He gathers his troops to find out who took his money, making his thugs beat up suspects and meeting up old associates to find out more of Casper’s particular proclivities. Frank manages to find out that Casper had a “Fuck House,” which he makes Ray to check it out as they meet at up the bar because he’s a detective. But Ray seems to have a change of heart maybe because of the talk with his ex wife about how he used to be a decent man or the fact he might lose the only thing he loves in his life, his son. Or he’s just plain tired of leading a double life as he says he’s tired of it all. So, he doesn’t know why this relationship with Frank should exist anymore. But Frank doesn’t want to hear that shit. He wants fucking results because metaphorically he doesn’t want to be that kid back in the basement anymore with the rats chewing his hands. He can’t fail. He won’t let himself fail as he would go back to square one, to nothing.

This is the part of the article I would strongly suggest to turn back if you haven’t seen the show but if you’re a sucker for punishment, which you probably are if you read any of my shit, stop reading the rest of this.

Ray decides to go on Frank’s lead to Casper’s 2nd house where we can see in the foreground the same car that Casper’s body was transported in to the park bench. So, I immediately thought this can’t be good. As Ray starts to investigate Casper’s house, he sees evidence that something happen at this house with blood on the floor but before he could add anything up in his head, he gets blasted with presumably the same shotgun that Casper died from. Then the killer makes sure he doesn’t come back from the dead like White Walkers on Game of Thrones as he double taps Ray.

There were a lot of comparisons with Ray’s character and Jon Snow’s character in Game of Thrones, which if you didn’t watch the Season Finale a couple weeks ago, you should probably just stop read this article because you’re not going to like it either. Jon’s character died just like his father because they thought they were going the “right thing”, which usually leads to your death if your own a show where everyone is looking out for themselves. Another comparison is that both characters had all the opportunity in the world to walk away from their lives. A chance to live and go on a different path, but both characters had a sense of duty, which they had to fulfill because this is who they are down to the bone. Also, he was fucking killed by a guy with a Crow Mask!!!

Now both of their Watch Has is Ended. Which, I not sure if Colin’s character is really dead or not, but it’s still pretty ballsy writing to kill off your lead character. It’s definitely going to affect the story and how the show proceeds now but that’s the mark of a good show or any kind of good writing. The writers are willing to kill off favorite characters in order for the story to live. I can’t wait for the next episode of TD, which I’m hoping Ray is still alive as the Night King of the City of Vinci.

Fu’s Observations:

  • Did Vince have morning wood during that really depressing story about eating rats? He did eat rats you know, you can’t survive for a week without food.
  • I loved how they talked about the SPRAWL. Last season of TD, they used as a term to talk about the vast network of families and land in Louisiana, which this season I believe they’re going a great job showing us how fucking BIG Los Angeles is because it is a SPRAWL.
  • If you’re torturing a dude, just go for his penis. He’ll tell you anything you want.
  • The car scene with Ray and Ani was fucking hilarious as we get deeper with Ani’s character on why she has to protect herself with all her knives. In the first episode, when we first see Ani’s character, there were a bunch of Eastern Philosophy books about being a warrior and self defense books. One of these books was the Hagakure, the Way of the Warrior.
  • Colin’s best lines:

“E Cig is like sucking a robot’s dick.”

“I’m not tight with anybody.”

“A good beating promotes personal growth.”

“I support feminism,” after learning the Ani can kill any men in a minute or less.

“We get the world we deserve”

  • I almost turned off the tv because of the TMZ shot of Paul’s scandal with the Hollywood actress.
  • I personally think getting a blowjob from patron should not be grounds for employee punishment.
  • But Taylor’s character won that argument with his girlfriend by using that great method of turning the argument into the another person’s problem: “You’re doing this, I’m not doing this.”   Winning the conversation by taking out all the responsibility from your side. Choose your battles guys.
  • Two great characters we got to see this episode is the Asian guy from Dexter played C.S. Lee and Pedro Miguel Arce from the underrated show The Strain, which I highly recommend.
  • I want Pedro’s “Fuck You” grille
  • Does Rachel McAdam’s character into all kinds of porn? Would she be down for Nugget Porn? (Let the Goggling begin)
  • Once again the bar singer, who could have been a cast member of The Girl, Interrupted, Lera Lynn sets the mood every time with her hauntingly beautiful songs at the bar. Check out the interview she did with Vulture on how her songs got on TD: http://www.vulture.com/2015/06/lera-lynn-true-detective-singer.html
  • “I’ll comeback and butt fuck your father with your mom’s headless corpse …”  RIP (Maybe) Ray Velcoro
