Straight Outta Compton

1 year, 7 months ago at Feb 8 17:07
1 vote
Straight Outta Compton is sprawling to the point where it begins to feel like its sputtering to the finish line. While it commits many of the same sins of other biographical films of influential artists, this one at least captures the specificity of time and place that birthed them. It’s in those moments that Straight Outta Compton is most vivid and entertaining, showcasing the police brutality ... read more

Initial Thought: I didn't know much about N.W.A. to be honest. I only knew about the three main members. I didn't even know who MC Ren or DJ Yella were. All I know is the trailer was awesome and the I was familiar with a few songs of theirs. So when it came to my theater I set out for it immediately.

Characters/Acting: Sure it would have been cool to have all the next generation of t... read more

Since this movie turned out to be quite successful at the box-office, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, first of all, I thought that the opening scenes were really strong. Indeed, it is when you get to see where those guys started that the whole thing worked out the most and, at that point, I thought that, if they could keep up this level of intensity, it could turn out to be a really stron... read more

"Tässä on ainekset erittäin kiinnostavaan elokuvaan, mutta voi vittu kuinka elokuva voi olla itseään täynnä. Joo, ymmärrän sen verran rapin historiasta että itsekehut kuuluvat asiaan, mutta jos haluaa tehdä onnistuneen elokuvan aiheesta, sitä ei tehdä niin että on olemassa yksiselitteisesti hyvä ja paha. Heller toki ei ollut reiluin jätkä maan päällä, mutta aika helvetin karulla tavalla häntä tässä käsitellään. Ihan kuin NWA:n jätkät nyt olisi niitä puhtaimpia taivaa"

"March 2nd Were people really calling for this movie to receive Oscar nominations. The screenplay shouldn't even have been nominated. Besides the music scenes the entire movie is flat and the acting is sub par.Maybe Ice Cube's son could be given a pass because he loves so much like his father it's hard not to make his character believable but the rest are just shit. Also, the movie seemed biased towards Dre and Ice Cube coming off as a revisioning of history. Given the fact that both their pr"

"Great casting and performances. Hiphop isn't my thing but N.W.A's music I've liked pretty much. GTA San Andreas soundtrack helped in that. Their story and the setting of the 90's racial tension was interesting watch. Also Suge Knight is fucking scary."

A good movie

“Since this movie turned out to be quite successful at the box-office, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, first of all, I thought that the opening scenes were really strong. Indeed, it is when you get to see where those guys started that the whole thing worked out the most and, at that point, I thought that, if they could keep up this level of intensity, it could turn out to be a really strong movie,  much stronger than I expected. Unfortunately, as soon as they managed to release their first hit song, the whole thing turned out into a rather generic music biopic. I mean, sure, it was interesting enough but  it wasn't really spellbinding anymore. Still,  I really  liked how they managed to show what those guys have managed to achieve without glamorising their lifestyle. Basically,” read more

"29.09. Viaplay, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY F. Gary Gray Musician biopics are mostly worth watching if you like the subject but they never seem to transcend the level of an illustrated Wikipedia page. Well, most of the details this film covered I didn't know of and I like watching films more than I like reading Wikipedia so this was worth my time. "

" 8.1/10 The cast does a great job of bringing the original gangsta rappers to life, a cast that includes Ice Cube's own son. There are several nice moments in here, even if they seem a little out of place, like showing collaborations with Tupac and Snoop Dogg, who were integral to the story of the subjects' lives but the director failed to make it a clear connection.
