    Edgar Wright needs to make a Toonami cartoon.
    "Baby Driver" fits nicely into a space of movies that seem to be more and more frequent - especially with the release of "La La Land" last year. The category is really hard to describe, they're kind of like parodies but without the blunt self-reference; kind of like throwbacks but revamped and infused with modern culture…
