THE FILM

Music biopics are one of my favorite genres of film. I love seeing a musical artist or band portrayed on screen and their rise to fame, complete with how they came up with their platinum hits, warts and all. As of lately, we haven’t seen a ton of these biopics with the exception of the excellent ‘Love & Mercy‘ about Beach Boys member Brian Wilson. Most of the biopics usually focus on one person or a band and go up until they hit it big, but that’s not the case with ‘Straight Outta Compton‘, which is more of a bio-epic than a biopic. Instead of following one person, the film follows three main characters with a treasure trove of other superstar artists.

The music changed the world and the movie began a whole new genre of exciting film making and it’s now ‘Straight Outta Compton‘ is making its way to your homes, SUV’s, The Bahamas, or anywhere else you want to take it for that matter. If you think just seeing it in theaters is going to be enough, think again, because this one is the Unrated Director’s Cut!

Paul Giamatti Heading ‘Straight Outta Compton’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 18th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

o-STRAIGHT-OUTTA-COMPTON-570

 

We all knew that creating the N.W.A. biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton‘ was going to make some headlines in some form or another. I didn’t expect the production to get so much attention, especially this early on. The biggest shocker came in the form of an extremely real drive-by shooting when the crew was filming near the Compton courthouse. The unplanned violence gave the crew a good scare, but it’s back to business as usual.

Film Review: ‘[Detroit]’!!

by Janet White on Jul 29th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W.  here…

Fifty years ago (to the day I screened Detroit), atrocities occurred in Detroit, Michigan. July 25, 1967 has been a day of woe for generations past and will be for those to come. Effectively capturing the events of this time, Detroit offers a raw in-your-face journey into the debasement of human beings simply because of their color. Such actions led to outrage which brewed to boiling over due to criminal misconduct and murder performed by police officers escalated to several days of rioting and worse. Black people helping the crooked cops unlawfully abuse and imprison other black people. Read the rest of this entry »

Blu-ray Review: The Fate of the Furious!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

We’re eight movies into this franchise, which would have you assume that these films would have lost steam, been remade, or have a completely new cast. That’s not the case at all with ‘Fate of the Furious‘ or the 8th installment of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, because there are no signs of this franchise slowing down, being remade, or losing any of its fun cast.
