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

Animals are Better than Humans – They’re better Wingmen

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.

“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.

Directions

.                Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

.                Sift the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir the mixture to blend evenly, and sift a second time into another bowl.

.                Place the shortening into a mixing bowl and beat until creamy. Gradually beat in the white sugar. Beat in the egg, and dark molasses.

Venus and Jupiter are hooking up tonight!!! (Science is Awesome)

According to NPR, Venus and Jupiter are only converging into a small area of the Earth’s sky. NASA says the two bright planets will be “a jaw-dropping one-third of a degree apart.”

That distance is smaller than the width of a full moon, as seen from Earth’s surface.

“You’ll be able to hide the pair not just behind the palm of your outstretched hand, but behind your little pinky finger,” NASA says.

And unlike some other astronomical phenomena, this convergence should be easily visible: Just look to the west around sunset. That’s where you’ll find Venus and Jupiter, if the sky is relatively clear.

Conjunctions between Venus and Jupiter are far from rare events,” notes Space.com. But the site adds that tonight’s “unusually close” conjunction is worth seeing — and it adds that this is both the closest and the last pairing between the two planets in the current 24-year cycle.

Also, Venus and Jupiter were my favorite characters on Sailor Moon.

California-Beverly-Hills-Rodeo-Drive

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.
