Movie Madness!!! 4
|"Never go full retard!"|
For today's installment of Movie Madness, it's "Tropic Thunder" (2008). "Tropic Thunder" is about a group of actors going in to Vietnam to make the best Vietnam biopic movie ever....except then they run into a real drug cartel. Hilarity ensues.
The cast in this movie is a rock solid comedy team: Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Nick Nolte, and, my personal hero, Robert Downey Jr. wearing a black face.
This is movie came out only a few months after "Iron Man" catapulted RDJ's career. Was it weird seeing Tony Stark's face as a black man? Yep. But it also got RDJ an Oscar nomination.
I drew the majority of this with a thick tip Sharpie marker. The greys of the picture are done with a dried up Sharpie.
