Soooo, this is awkward.


Remember at the end of the Dope episode when we implied that our next movie would suck? Well, foot meets mouth as we talk the Spanish-language Mexican punfeast Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos (aka "Huevos: Little Rooster's Egg-cellent Adventure" aka "We're gonna bastardize the english dub for the American market"). This fearless PG-13 children's feature about cockfighting-- oh, sorry.. Rooster Boxing is a very unique entry into the world of computer animated films. We talk culture differences, covert marketing strategies, and ultimately what lesson hollywood should take from this film.


We stress: should you seek this film out, WATCH THE SPANISH SUBBED VERSION. The English dubbed version is a different cut as well as a MUCH different film, devoid of the charm. Both versions can be found on the same DVD.

Welcome to the 90's! ..sort of.

At least that's the theme of this week's movie. We're discussing the 2015 Sundance hit, Dope! If you were to boilerplate the plot of this movie, it would go something like: "A group of teens must sell ecstasy to get into Harvard". But strangely, this DOES NOT DESCRIBE WHAT THE FILM IS at all! We talk what this movie gets right that others like it fail at, and why. So grab your Air Jordans, rock that flat top, and crank that Public Enemy, because it's time for Dope!
