Straight Outta Compton [Redband trailer]

An interesting way to bounce into a trailer; with a micro-doc of the real men who lived the life talking about their past and the relevance of their story today. Then it’s on to Paul Giamatti – which feels a little like disingenuous, Hollywood white-washing.

Still, it’s a well produced trailer and the actors they’ve found to portray the main talent within N.W.A. is seem quite charismatic and scary look-a-like.

Corey Hawkins … Dr. Dre
Aldis Hodge … MC Ren
O’Shea Jackson Jr. … Ice Cube
Neil Brown Jr. … Dj Yella
Jason Mitchell … Eazy-E

Is this something you kids of the 80s are excited for? Or perhaps a feature-length documentary (similar to the opening of this trailer) would paint a more interesting picture and relate it to the sad state of affairs that is present day?

That trailer looks pretty great and as someone who who has came around on that genre of music I am very interested in seeing it.

Also asking whether or not it should just be a doc I can see strengths in both and there should just be both.

All I can think of is this:


I agree we need a doc as well but I’m thrilled to see the trailer looks great.
