This has been done so many times before and so much better. This entire movie is so saccharine and so manipulative. With all the controversy over its Netflix release it honestly feels more like a made for TV movie in the worst way. Bland and forgettable.

Who is this movie for? With its graphic meat factory scenes I can't imagine showing this to a kid... unless I suppose you're trying to force them to be vegan or something. But if that was the point, instead of inventing a dumb animal they could have just made it about an actual pig or cow. I think I would have cared more. Never mind how boggled this message gets when she literally confirms to the system, gets what she wants, and then just goes home. I guess capitalism wins in the end. Hallelujah.

Sorry, not my type of film. Though I will give props to the main girl, she was the only heart and soul in the entire thing.

You know what, I really enjoyed this if for nothing else than the fact that without the music setting the upbeat tone it woulda been depressing as shit. But throw in some excellent comedic timing and suddenly a speech about how you're worthless to the world except for your body organs becomes somehow amusing. This movie exists in that plane between laughter and tears - a perfect satirical send up of money obsessed culture and the true loyalties of the Beautiful Ones on top.

On the Old Spanish Trail

Genuinely enjoyable, good songs, fun characters. Exactly what you want out of a B singing cowboy flick.

Roy Rogers gets called upon to pay up some debt accrued by the Sons of the Pioneers, so he sets out to see what all the trouble is. Turns out every time they play a show somebody goes and robs the banks, so nobody wants to book them anymore and they're falling behind on their payments. The number one suspect is The Gypsy aka Rico, a rather dashing Mexican horseman, who just so happens to be in love with Candy Martin, the show's leading star. His infatuation is a point of frustration for Lolita, his girlfriend, who spends most of her time cursing Candy and yelling at Rico.

The best part about this movie is absolutely the characters. From Roy Rogers sincerity, to Rico's (excellently played by the multitalented Tito Guízar) ladies-man charm, to Cookie's good natured comedic timing, and even an excellent vaudeville-esque performance by The Sons of the Pioneers as they sing. This movie just encapsulates the cowboy nostalgia at its best - overly sweet but grounded in some morality. Also refreshing to see Roy Rogers defending a Mexican wanderer over a bunch of evil white guys. Yeehaw!

Harlem Rides The Range

Straight forward no nonsense and enjoyable b-western with a twist happy ending. Herb Jeffries is charming, Dustys questionable comedy doesn't take up too much time and the daughter is cute too. Needed more singing though. And action. A lot of standings around and talking.
