Straight Outta Compton

Ms Pod & I, not really being hip-hop fans, watched it.

Great movie. Even you aren't into hip-hop. There's enough of a story, and enough "background info" for you to get the idea without knowing much about NWA, Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E and so on.

Re: Straight Outta Compton

I took a lot of crap recently when I was trying to show a presentation in a conference room using an Apple TV because the first thing that people saw when I started the Apple TV was:


STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON



People were like, uhhh, what is this presentation about?

I had a dream last night I was piloting a plane
and all the passengers were drunk and insane.

Re: Straight Outta Compton

I definitely want to see this. Have you seen "Hustle and Flow"? That was a kick ass hip-hop movie.

Nope. I should queue it up. I think you'd enjoy Straight Outta Compton though since there's a fair amount of industry goings-on in there.

And Ice Cube's son might as well be a clone of his dad.

Re: Straight Outta Compton

I liked it a lot and thought it was well made. Not sure it is an Oscar worthy flick but really good in terms of content and history of CA hip hop.

Of course I had to Google the hell out of it afterwards, and there are a few inconsistencies and Jerry Heller claims he was horridly misrepresented in the film. But it did stick mostly to the story, probably because of most of NWA being involved in it on their own and Eazy's widow Tomika being an executive producer.

Well, if Jerry is so grossly misrepresented, he'll walk with 110 million but that remains to be seen/ proved in court

I mean, if Mad Max got 10 Oscar nominations, it seems like they might have lowered their standards...

Exactly. I wasn't there, so I have no idea. Didn't even know who he was until the film.

Mad Max got nominations for many technical aspects like makeup and editing. I've only seen the trailer and I can tell you from a makeup perspective, that takes a lot of creativity and skill much like editing. Production design is another one, I know to most people that's nothing but those are key elements in creating a movie.
