straight-outta-compton--Long-Sleeve-ShirtsYesterday I ventured to the movie theaters to see a film that I had been waiting for someone to make for a very long time. It had been a while since I did a Based On A Truesday (play on the words True and Tuesday) Story post and I figured Straight Outta Compton was the perfect piece to return with. The film is about the rise and fall of one of the greatest hip groups in the world in N.W.A. It was the group that featured the greatest rappers Compton had to offer at the time in Dr. Dre (played by Corey Hawkins), Ice Cube (played by O’Shea Jackson Jr.), Eazy-E (Jason Mitchell) DJ Yella (Neil Brown Jr.), and MC Ren (played by Aldis Hodge). The group changed the way rap was done back int he late 80’s to ealry 90’s and the film chronicles their struggle to put Compton on the map to their rise to fame and eventual downfall. The film also stars Paul Giamatti (American Splendor) as Jerry Heller, Marlon Yates Jr. as The Doc, R. Marcos Taylor (Dead Man Down) as Suge Knight, Keith Stanfield (The Purge: Anarchy) as Snoop Dogg, Carra Patterson (Why Did I Get Married Too) as Tomica Wright, Marcc Rose as Tupac, Mark Sherman as Jimmy Iovine, and the film was directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday).

watch-straight-outta-compton-n-w-a-biopic-movie-red-band-trailer-videoThis has to be by far the movie of the year or at least one of the greatest biopics ever made on the history of this earth. I literally had goosebumps while I was watching the film remembering the rise of rap.Hip Hop and what a beautiful thing it was to watch. I think every guy did a good job playing the role they were given especially Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. who was given the role of a lifetime. The only complaint that I have about the film is the fact that they diminished MC Ren’s role in all of this like he wasn’t that important of a person in the group. I feel like MC Ren had more of a role in the beginnings of the group, but his role in the film is minimal at best. I get it hat the most important ones out of all of them were Dre, Eazy, and Ice Cube who all enjoyed major success in life. The one thing the film reminds you is how sad it was that we never had the N.W.A. reunion that we all deserved as it was about to be set up until Eazy-E passed away. Everyone from top to bottom did an amazing job in this film as it felt so real and you almost felt like you wee there at the exact moment in time that it was happening. I did want to also mention that R. Marcos Taylor did an amazing job capturing who Suge Knight was and I don’t know who Marcc Rose is, but will someone sign him up for a Tupac biopic already cause it was scary how much he looked like Tupac. This film deserves to be an Oscar contender and if it’s not then we all know the Academy had no idea what there jobs are. I am going to give the film an A+ for a final grade because it kicked so much butt it kicked ass.

demonacoIn my other blog that I once had and regretfully got rid of, I had stated that The Purge was the new American Tradition in the theaters much like it was an event to go and see The Final Destination films to count all the kills or who was going to go first, but only better.I say that because the mere idea of what The Purge presented to the American public was genius and it struck a chord with some people as we evaluate what our government is doing to try and better the country.  Well, there is big news in The Purge camp as Universal, Blumhouse, and Platinum Dunes announced that there is going to be a third film in the franchise. The fact of the matter is that you shouldn’t be surprised at this decision because the first film grossed 91 million and the second film The Purge: Anarchy surpassed that at 112 million. The kicker of it all is that the two films combined budget is 12 million dollars so it’s safe to say that this is definitely not only the wise choice for the studios, but a safe one as it has garnered the interest. The best part about it too is that studios are being smart in letting James DeMonaco (who wrote and directed the first two) write and direct the third so that his vision is carried out. We’ve ll heard and seen the stories behind studios who constantly switched directors with every sequel. Here is what DeMonaco told Deadline, “I never imagined that The Purge would become the phenomenon it has become and I am thrilled to continue my collaboration with Blumhouse, Sebastien Lemercier, Platinum Dunes and the great team at Universal in building The Purge into a worldwide franchise. Sebastian Lemercier, Blumhouse Productions Jason Blum, and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form will all return as producers for the third film as well. So, stay tuned here for more info as it becomes available to us.

Some Guy Who Kills People Poster

Courtesy Of IMDB.com

Well, there’s 35 days until Halloween and I have another movie for you guys for another edition of Cheeseball Cinema. I traveled to my local supermarket and I visited the Redbox to try and pick something interesting to watch. They didn’t have the movie I initially wanted and I decided to rent Some Guy Who Kills People. I know, you’re looking at the title and your wondering what the hell is this about.  So, Ken (Kevin Corrigan) has just gotten out of the loony bin and he’s trying to get his life together. Things start to go crazy for Ken when he finds out he has a daughter,  then guys Ken hates start getting murdered, and Ken is in the middle of it. The film also stars Barry Bostwick (Rocky Horror Picture Show), Karen Black (House Of A 1000 Corpses), Ariel Gade (Dark Water), Eric Price (Alpha And Omega) as Deputy Ernie Dobkins, Lucy Davis (Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina) as Stephanie, Lou Beatty Jr. (NCIS) as Al Fooger, Niko Nicotera (The Purge: Anarchy) as Lyle Bagwell, and Leo Fitzpatrick (Kids) in this horror comedy directed by Jack Perez (Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus).

Let’s talk about the details of this film because this is what I love doing. Some of the characters in this film are real corny and their acting is equally corny like most of the victims that are taken out. At first, I didn’t know what to think about the relationship between the sheriff and his deputy as they would go back and forth speaking in puns. I was able to tolerate that, but Ariel Gade’s character could get annoying after a while, but I understood her role in the end. Karen Black was brilliant in this film, I loved it every time she was on camera because she played the perfect pessimistic mom who is trying to understand her son and looks as if she’s had enough. You may become confused at the twist at the end of the film, but believe me it all makes perfect sense when they map it out for you. What I like about this film as well is the obvious conflict the main character faces in this film. He has been let out of a loony bin and we find out that he has a daughter. He’s conflicted because he wants to kill these guys that tormented him, but he also wants to get real close with a daughter he hasn’t seen in 11 years. I recommend this film, I mean it costs only a little over a dollar at your local redbox. On scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being an a-list film and 5 being the cheesiest film of all time, I give it a 3 1/2.
