"Its the summer of 1994, and the streets of New York are pulsing with hip hop and wafting with the sweet aroma of marijuana. The newly-inaugurated mayor, Rudolph Giuliani, is only beginning to implement his anti-fun initiatives against crimes like noisy portable radio, graffiti and public drunkenness.
Propelled by an exuberant hip hop score, The Wackness captures the spell of 1994--a time of pagers, not cell phones; a time when Tupac and Biggie were alive but Kurt Cobain had just died."
from reading reviews online and checking the trailers and from the cast, this looks set to be a good film, especially for heads of my vintage...
speaking of films i watched this on saturday night
Tom Ludlow: Konnichiwa. Konnichiwa. It means what's up. So what the fuck's up?
street kings - as an action flick head and a hip hop head i thought this was a pretty cool, gritty, cops gone bad film. keanu not as the typical hero for once, and a nice cameo from common and the game with some well samplable dialogue... forrest whitakker is pretty bad ass too and even hugh laurie comes off as kinda tough, and how can i forget the beautiful naomi harris playing terry crews wife.
