Straight Outta Compton
had high hopes for this one considering all the hype and the fact that i like the original group. unfortunately it was a sprawling hagiography that was clearly influenced by the fact that ice cube and dr. dre were producers. gets into too much stuff after the breakup of the group and doesn’t tell the whole story. acting was mostly not very good and overall it wasn’t worth writing home about. makes the oscar hub bub about a lack of color in that year’s ceremony seem all the more hollow.
