Movie Review: ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell
Aug 2015 14

New Straight Outta Compton PosterAfter seeing Straight Outta Compton, it’s almost like things haven’t changed all that much.

While N.W.A. burst onto the scene in 1988 with the anthem “Fuck the Police,” the song seems more relevant now than ever, given the racial tension that is going on in Ferguson.

While F. Gary Gray’s biopic of N.W.A brilliantly shows just what the groups members went through to achieve fame, it seems to run just a little too long and get a little too soft near the end.

Gray, (whose first film Friday starred Ice Cube) is now directing Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr. O’Shea is a spitting image of his father in the film, and delivers a strong performance as the young Cube.

Jason Mitchell steals the show as Eric ‘Eazy-E’ Wright. Wright is easily the deepest character in the film, raising money for studio time by selling drugs. While Wright’s small stature mixes well with his high voice, his attitude and the way he carried himself was anything but small.

Fantastic Four Movie PosterFantastic Four landed with a thud at the box office and in hearts.

What went wrong? Why did they make this movie? What were they thinking? We answer the first two and speculate wildly on the third.

Plus, Tom remembered that Dan has a Video Recovery.

Aug 2015 11

fantastic four box office reportThis week, we change our format ever so slightly. Moving forward we’ll be doing two podcasts a week – one for the box office and one for the movie itself. It allows us to get them to you more quickly and not burden you with a 2-hour podcast. So join us while we tackle the box office for 8/7-8/9.

Why did Fantastic Four fail? What does two weeks at number one mean for Tom Cruise? (Besides free auditing for everyone at the compound?) And you get a special haiku about Meryl Streep’s new movie Ricki and the Flash.

105: ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ Starring Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner
Aug 2015 06

Mission Impossible 5 Poster LargeTom Cruise is back and trying desperately not to look desperate.

He’s in search of a hit and should have had one with Edge of Tomorrow/Live.Die.Repeat (or whatever they’re calling it this week). Clearly it’s going to take more than a good movie for him to have hit. So he returns once more to the Mission: Impossible well. Is having a hit the most impossible mission of all?

10865871_612372792222920_6931055041149370545_oWhat’s worse than a movie starring Adam Sandler? How about Adam Sandler taking a big, steaming dump all over your childhood? That’s Pixels for ya. On the upside, Sandler just signed a 6-picture deal with Netflix so this might be the last time we’re forced to talk about one of his movies. We’re a “glass half full” kinda podcast.

Plus, a box office report from Kevin and a virtually infinite Video Recovery from Dan.
