If you take the Book of Revelation and throw it in a blender with Donnie Darko, Interstellar, a few adult films and some monkey souls, THIS IS WHAT YOU GET. Southland Tales is an ambitious world-building story about a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles where entertainers are politicians and a government agency spies on Americans in the name of national security while the end of the world is afoot. Sounds interesting, right? THEN YOU WOULD BE WRONG. This movie is like that kid in your 9th grade government class that began every sentence with, "Well, actually..." EXCEPT WITH MORE MURDER. There's a lot going on here and we do our best to explain it. (You WILL have more questions, though.) And remember, PIMPS DON'T COMMIT SUICIDE. Also!! Dwayne Johnson wants Jimmy Kimmel to deliver his baby girl!! The Rock confirms Vin Diesel beef to Rolling Stone!! Join us next week as we have a VERY SPECIAL EPISODE (VSE) to cover The Rock's latest movie, RAMPAGE.
