Twitter Users Made These Films Mexican And It’s Hilarious

Twitter might be full of clapbacks and strong political opinions but the real gold is in Twitter comedy. Kind of like #MakeAFilmMexican. The only purpose of this hashtag is to take movie titles and add a Mexican element. Per usual, Twitter users delivered.

Twitter gave us gold once again thanks to #MakeAFilmMexican.


Mainly because “American Beauty” is too basic.

Even Christian Grey got a Mexican upgrade.


Yeah, that’s right, upgrade.

A few people went a little obscure with their references.


Has anybody else watched “Encino Man.”

Tacos > Love, actually.


Though “Love Actually” is a great movie for the holidays.

Some movie titles just need a bit of Spanish to give it a twist.


*queues up “The Breakfast Club” and disappears from the world*

A few people took a chance in updating some classics.


If you haven’t read or watched “To Kill A Mockingbird“, do it now.

This Mexican upgrade definitely has a political undertone…


…and this one is all for that one person who went on a cruise to Mexico once.


The Princess and the Frog” is a pretty great movie, imho.

G.I. Joe has nothing on G.I. José.


A few of these tweets should legit become movies.


Boyz n the Hood” is cute but just imagine “Vatos de Barrio.”

There were so many Star Wars jokes.


Some were just reimagined posters…


…and some are so great, they deserve a movie deal.


“Fear the chancla, you will.” – Mexican Yoda

We all have a Jorge in our life that constantly gets lost.


But the greatest reboot would have to be Captain Mexico.


ICONIC!

Meet Manuel Mendoza, The Winner Of Netflix’s Cannabis Cooking Competition Show

Netflix and Kelis teamed up to create a cooking competition show all about cannabis cooking. “Cooked with Cannabis” is giving cannabis chefs a chance to shine with some friendly competition and the ever-popular cannabis.

Kelis is here with a new kind of cooking competition show officially changing the game.

“Cooked with Cannabis” is elevating the use of cannabis in the kitchen. It is no longer something used by stoners and only stoners. “Cooked with Cannabis” makes cannabis a sophisticated and respectable ingredient in the kitchen. The show offers some insights as to the differences between different strains of pot that many of us just never understood.

The show has six episodes in the first season and there is a new cast of chefs every episode.

The premise of the show is three chefs battling it out for three judges to show what they can do with the cannabis they are given. The recipes look like culinary works of art and seem equally as appetizing. The winner of the episode is given $10,000 as a prize and that’s pretty grand.

One of the winners this season is Manuel Mendoza, a cannabis chef from Chicago.

Mendoza works for Herbal Notes, a Chicago-based cannabis collaborative project. According to the website, Herbal Notes hopes to destigmatize the practice of using cannabis in cooking by highlighting the medicinal properties of the natural ingredient. Herbal Notes is also trying to empower communities long vilified for their use of cannabis.

Mendoza won using the cannabis to create some deliciously relevant foods.

Mendoza won by giving the judges some pot leaf-shaped chilaquiles and marijuana-infused pupusas. The use of Mexican and Salvadoran foods not only highlights our community but also his own upbringing in Chicago as a Salvadoran kid. Mendoza is proud to say that he was raised by Pilsen, the famed Latino community in Chicago.

Congratulations, Mendoza. It is a victory well deserved.

Mendoza’s start in cannabis cooking came when he had a eureka moment with iced chocolate milk. The chef was fresh out of culinary school and was eager to try new things, including cannabis cooking. The cannabis cooking trend was just kicking off and he just wanted to play around. When he created that iced chocolate milk, Mendoza knew that he was on to something and the rest is his culinary career.

Turns Out ‘Machete’ Director Robert Rodriguez Is Behind ‘Rain On Me’

As a director, Robert Rodriguez never fails to deliver.

From the hits of the”Spy Kids” franchise to “Machete”, the seasoned Mexican-American filmmaker has built a career on high-action movies that always deliver colorful punches. It’s why, when it was recently revealed that he added Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s latest music video collaboration to his lineup of films we were pretty surprised. And awestruck.

“Rain on Me,” is the latest Gaga X Ariana Grande collab to go viral and the first music video to be directed by Rodriguez.

Over the weekend, the second single from Gaga’s upcoming sixth studio album Chromatica dropped much to the delight of fans. The song, which visits the genres of dance-pop, disco, house, and electropop has been described by Gaga as a “celebration of tears” and has already received quite a bit of praise from users online. According to Rolling Stone, “In addition to Grande, the 16-song Chromatica will also feature contributions from Elton John and South Korean group Blackpink.”

Of course, over the weekend, fans could not get enough of the video.

Or the chemistry between the collaborators.
