It's my turn

Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a geek growing up in "The Bottom" section of Inglewood. He wants to go to Harvard. He hangs out with two geek friends Jib (Tony Revolori) and Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) is a lesbian who likes Justin Bieber. They love things from the 1990s. While attending a birthday party at a club there was a shoot out and in all the excitement Malcolm grabs the wrong knapsack and gets the one filled with Molly.

With the owner busted, there are others who want the bag while Malcolm stands at the crossroads of his life.

Malcolm breaks the stereotype and provides us with an interesting character. There other characters were not as well developed, but were played well. This was one "thug" movie that I enjoyed.

Guide: F-bomb. Near sex. Nudity (Chanel Iman of Victoria Secret)

I wanted this movie to be more than it was

I wanted this movie to be a truly original and insightful story masked as something more conventional. It turned out to be something pretty conventional masked as something more original and insightful. It was probably pitched at Sundance as "Orange County with black nerds!" Don't get me wrong: I was entertained. The 90s soundtrack was fun, and the main characters appealing, even if the story was predictable as hell and the race politics pretty shallow. I enjoy the occasional movie about nerdy upstarts caught up in something bigger, especially when well done. But I've seen this movie before, and setting it in "the hood" seemed less meaningful than the filmmaker thought it was.

One of the more bizarre movies I have seen

Only slight spoilers - nothing to detract from viewing the film. I'm not even looking at the other reviews yet. Next time I catch this film, I'll probably give it 10 out of 10: I'm only giving it 9 because it was quite sophisticated, and at times - difficult for me to follow.

It tells the story of 3 African American teenagers, they are "nerds", very not-tough, trying to survive through high school in a very violent predominantly black neighborhood and get accepted to college. What struck me at first was the intense black-upon-black violence in this neighborhood - but this is only the backdrop to this movie, and I'd have tuned out if it hadn't evolved.

The lead character finds that following a gang shooting he's had heroin and a gun dropped into his schoolbag (which he discovers while going through the school metal detector, ho ho!). These 3 teens have to practically run for their lives, And the main character (who knows NOTHING about drug dealing) has to concoct a plan to sell the stash for a profit.

Also, I liked that this was nearly an all black cast film: and a really good one.

Bizarre stuff - was worth my time.
