My favorite movie is Straight Outta Compton. I like it because it seemed so real [it is a docudrama/biopic of sorts]. The way the gangs were, the concerts, and the police violence/racism. I like movies that look realistic and can make me relate to real life. That movie was also really funny e.g. (examples given). The actors looked just like the people the movie were based on [O'Shea Jackson Jr. does play his father Ice Cube] so that made it even better.
You are not alone in liking this film (I have not seen it yet); it has a 90% critic approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is often said to be the gold standard of internet based movie ratings. Give me more! Tell me why I should spend my hard earned money and give up two hours and twenty seven minutes of my life to see it. I look forward to reading more; be sure to include SPOILER ALERTS! if you decide to give away key plot points. RIP Easy E.
