83 - Annie (2014)

It’s not just that the 2014 ANNIE remake provided the perfect showcase for Quvenzhané Wallis to take over America, but it’s also that it provided us with a warning of things to come. Jamie Foxx’s wealthy businessman runs for public office, uses social media to boost his numbers, and vows to “make this city great again”. He also wears fake hair. At any rate, it was too much for the general public. Listen to Alex and Julio rejoice with the remixed soundtrack, celebrate diversity and learn that “orphan” isn’t a PC word anymore!
