I loved it! The music, the casting, the story-- i was great. Granted, there were parts of the film where you can't help but think it was a little bit rushed. And I'm pretty sure the film isn't 100% accurate, seeing as Ice Cube and Dr. Dre were both producers--these two guys probably did more bad stuff than they let it out on the movie
What really impressed me was how the actors looked/sounded so much like their real-world counter parts. I mean, a young snoop dogg?--Nailed it. Tupac?--Freakin' nailed it. The actors playing Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and Eazy-E really did a great job personifying the rappers. I got my mind blown when I saw the guy playing Ice Cube looked and sounded so similar to him, until I realized it was actually his own son playing him xD So, props to that guy, he did a really great job.
And I loved the way they told the story. At first, I thought the film was about Eazy-E, but then they cut to Ice Cube and then suddenly, it was about Ice Cube. But then they went to Dr. Dre, then it was about Dr. Dre. It was really interesting that the story was told through the eyes of each character--a great way to tell a bio-pic as you can see every side of the story. Albeit some of the parts were probably shown in a lighter note.
You can watch the trailer here.
So what did you guys think of Straight Outta Compton? Do you think the film should've gotten more Oscar nominations?
