Dope is one of the movies I'm really anticipating. And it comes out next week (June 19th, 2015)
I grew up watching movies like, Boyz n tha Hood. I love all those "growing up in L.A" movies. But the reason I'm really pumped for Dope? It subverts the idea of what these growing-up-in-a-poor-neighborhood-in-LA movies are supposed to be.
Instead of having our protagonists be the usual "tough guy", they're all dorks/nerds/geeks or whatever you want to call them. I love this idea because I was all of those things when I was in high school.
It also helps that the movie seems pretty funny, too. Check out the trailer above and remember to catch it in theaters next week!
