    Just watched it today. I thought it was great. I wish Real G's was in it and Eazy's death was pretty sad. I like that they used real news footage from that time.
     
  3. I typically watch one movie per year in theatres, and this year, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON will probably be it.

    For some reason i can't remember that scene, what lead up to that point? I just watched it a few hours ago and I'm going blank on that scene.

    It was right after they got into an argument in the studio because everyone was tense after Ice Cube killed em on No Vaseline
    DOC said he liked the song and Eazy got pissed and told Dre to get his country ass homeboy under control and DOC walked out swiggin a bottle and Eazy told him he needs to quit drinking all the time because hes supposed to be the talent
    Next thing you know Dre gets a call from Suge that DOC was in a car crash and hes in the hospital

    It's a joke the Dee Barnes incident didn't make the cut.

    I love that they put that in there because apparently the DOC was drunk in the studio all the time popping shit.

    Hardly surprising given Dre's one of the producers, and denied anything happened for years, despite him, Ren and Eazy-E initially bragging about what he did. Now he skirts the issue, only admitting he did some pretty bad things when he was young.

    It's typical, though. As someone else pointed out, Dre's a producer.

    I get that he's a producer. But if he intended to make a film that was true to that era then that surely should have at least been alluded to in the movie. Obviously you don't show Dre beating up a woman, just make reference to it. Misogyny and violence towards women was and is still part of the rap culture NWA help create yet they ignore it totally.

    It's also hypocritical because we see the issue of police brutality and racism play a role in the movie with the guys from NWA being portrayed as victims. Yet when Dre was a perp and not a victim, well we just can't show that. The movie is fake as fuck for that very reason.

    Just reference it and make clear that it was a very bad mistake made by a hot-headed young man.

    Movie of the year for me so far. I gave a standing ovation!
     
  21. Think about something you did earlier on in your life that made you look like a scumbag, and ask yourself if you would advertise that action in a Hollywood movie to be seen by millions, especially in an era where it would be overly-criticized due to the circumstances of the time (in this case, feminism).

    Dr. Dre's involved in this to make cheese and make himself look good, not to bury himself in front of millions of people.

    I'm glad these young heroes are finally getting the recognition they deserve. Those special talents are once in a lifetime musicians that we should all honor and appreciate for all they have done. Great guys and I'm sure it's a totally accurate movie, can't wait to see it.

    I love gangsta rap, listened to a shitload of Warren g, Nate dogg, Dre, kurupt, eazy e as a young wanna be tough guy, still bump some g funk and early snoop dogg.

    But I would.be extremely surprised if this movie wasn't a steaming pile of shit. It'll.be emotionally juvenile and formulaic for sure.

    I might go see it during a Sunday matinee over the weekend. Either that or Southpaw. Jake Gellynhall really won me over with his recent performances in Enemy and Nightcrawler, but the previews of Southpaw just seem so cliche. It's getting pretty good reviews though, so I'll check it out.
