Straight Outta Compton

An ode to rap history, Straight Outta Compton brings a solid convincing cast and shows the underlying heart to the rough edge crew that made rap music what it is today. Despite a couple of clunky dialogues moments, the film is well-directed. Sticking with one narrative and never straying despite giving us many possibilities. I’m not well-versed in rap lore nor am I into entertaining that lifestyle, but having seen this grows a greater appreciation for those involved. Should this be oscar nominated? I don’t know, it’s hard when you compare these with the other films nominated because you are comparing apples to oranges. Maybe the Academy should have added a couple more slots for best picture, and included Straight Outta Compton. Nevertheless, as the real Ice Cube stated in an interview, “we make movies for the fans not the Academy.” Maybe we should just leave Straight Outta Compton at that. The fans have given it the recognition it deserves by praising it and buying it, while the golden statue does nothing. #cosigned.
