Thank you The Martian and the golden globes for helping to teach us the difference between something that is funny, even frequently funny, and the genre of "comedy." Yes, that was sarcasm, but also who gives a fuck, this good movie was good. Not a "comedy," but funny often, and good, and who gives a fuck.
Hoped to like this. Realllly loved this.
Replace Paul Giamatti (who was great, but recognizable) with an unknown, and I might have completely forgotten that I was watching a biopic. Every actor was so well cast, this might as well have been the real NWA. I was especially pulled into the film/along for their journey, and made to feel a connection with the godfathers of a genre that I was too young and sheltered at the time to have gained otherwise.
Pretty curious about the Director's Cut, but the theatrical length may have been pushing it just a bit for me as it is.
I'm probably just going to review this as I watch from this point...I just watched Lucky McKee's segment, and if it gets worse, I may leave it unfinished. Also, I don't give a shit at this point about the titles of each segment, so imma just number them.
1. Pretty solid intro, showed potential. Other than the candy left on the floor when the parents arrived. There was candy. They didn't eat it all. Get your shit straight.
