Nth Mile P. Rappa’s Ghetto-tastic Rap-Venture
This film was written, directed, and starring Chad Williams also of PBC Productions fame. Our tale is about how P. Rappa, a terrible rapper, must earn his thug license and win a rap battle to prove his worth, gain self-respect, and also the heart of his friend Sunny Funny (J.C. “Kitty” Ostopowicz from the New Adventures of Captain S). To earn the Thug License he must seek training from four rap masters. Along the way he must face challenges from the interference of his rival, the already successful and also hot for Sunny, Joe Chin (played hilariously by George Steffler III). He is aided by his friends P.J. Bear (Steve Smith), Katy Kat (Jade Alpert) and a dancing poster of Vin Diesel I shit you not. This one is big on the silly and I love every step of the way. We also have appearances by Brett Vanderbrook as Rap Master Moose, Rich Durham as Rap Master Chop, Darren Demarco as Rap Master Cheap Cheap (who seems to be channeling the Ultimate Warrior), Juese Cutler as a bum and a seal person, Casey Bowker as the Rap Battle MC and some puppetry work by Z (also of PBC Productions fame, you probably know her as Little Miss Gamer). This one is short, and cheap, and I love it dearly. I rarely groaned at the jokes and also want to point out that there is an anti-drug message in here too. As with every other X-Strike DVD there are extras out the yin-yang including an awesome song for the menu screen called, aptly enough, “Menu Scream”. Shael and Devon Riley are to be found there on the menu screen (this movie must have been the founding ground for PBC Productions. EVERYONE from Captain S except Ivy Hong is in this.) Overall, I give it a solid 4 out of 5. It’s great, but not perfect. Shadowdancer out!
