DOPE Digest is a weekly roundup of pop culture miscellany, with succinct analysis from our contributors. Beauty and the Beast (trailer) BK: The most popular trailer in the world had to make our list this week, and I will admit that I got a little tingly once that piano played over the opening shot of the 3D Magic Kingdom. This movie […]

DOPE Digest vol. 32 – Snowden, Charli XCX, Rihanna & More!

DOPE Digest is a weekly roundup of pop culture miscellany, with succinct analysis from our contributors.  Snowden (movie trailer) BK: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Nic Cage in the same movie? It’s like Christmas coming early! I’m not a huge Oliver Stone fan and I’m even less of a fan of the voice that JGL uses throughout the trailer/movie, but I […]

DOPE Digest vol. 30 – Dallas Housewives, Lana Del Rey, Pussy Riot & MORE!

 DOPE Digest is a weekly roundup of pop culture miscellany, with succinct analysis from our contributors. Real Housewives of Dallas Trailer syvo: It almost feels to me like Bravo is starting to panic that it’s Housewives empire is starting to go the way of all great empires, approaching the historical inevitability of decadence, decline, and dissolution. As key sub-franchises […]

Dope Digest vol. 29 – Pee-Wee, HBO’s Animals, Primal Scream & MORE!

 DOPE Digest is a weekly roundup of pop culture miscellany, with succinct analysis from our contributors. Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday Teaser syvo: This should be interesting, but I’m not totally sold on Apatow here. It’s easy to forget that Pee Wee’s Big Adventure (1985) was actually Tim Burton’s feature debut as a film director, and I’m puzzled to think of a creator […]

DOPE Digest vol. 28 – Savages, Neck Deep, The VVitch and more!

 DOPE Digest is a weekly roundup of pop culture miscellany, with succinct analysis from our contributors.   Savages – “Adore” Video Julia: This is my first favorite single of 2016, it is so great.

 DOPE Digest is a weekly roundup of pop culture miscellany, with succinct analysis from our contributors.   Suicide Squad Trailer BK: The latest trailer for Suicide Squad starts with all the promise in the world – “Bohemian Rapsody” is a great backing track and the visuals looks great.  The cast is already excellent (would have been even better […]

DOPE Digest is a weekly roundup of pop culture miscellany, with succinct analysis from our contributors. Ariana Grande – Christmas & Chill EP syvo: Well, well, well- Merry Christmas!

DOPE Digest vol. 25 – X-Men: Apocalypse, Sleigh Bells, Chairlift, and More!

 DOPE Digest is a weekly roundup of pop culture miscellany, with succinct analysis from our contributors. X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer   BK: Including the Wolverine movies, this will be the 8th (!!?!) movie in the X-Men franchise and the quality of the movies has varied from bad (X-Men 3, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) to solid (X-Men, X-Men: First Class) to […]

DOPE Digest Vol. 24 – Batman vs. Superman, Girls, Kendrick Lamar and MORE

DOPE Digest is a weekly roundup of pop culture miscellany, with succinct analysis from our contributors.
