Yesterday I got to see this movie after trying to find an opportunity for a free screening. I think I want to see it again. It was that great.
I have been a fan of rap since I was in my early teens and this group was so big to my passion for the genre. I wasn’t huge on N.W.A., but I was a fan of the products of the group, especially Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. And I actually knew a lot about the history of the group’s origins and all the way to their split. What made this film great was that they packed 10 years of history into a two-hour film.
Getting an inside look into the origins of the group and their early years on tour was something that was done real well. I had never seen anything like that and how they portrayed everything there was great. I look at the actors and their portrayals of the rappers was so good. I particularly really like the portrayal of Ice Cube and Eazy-E in the movie.
Seriously, there is so much going on in this trailer I can’t wait for it! Go Superman!!!!!
I was already excited to see this movie but when I found out that I could get free passes to see San Andreas early and The Rock was hosting it, I was on board. I had always wanted to see a movie at the Chinese Theatre and here we are. I got there at around 9:45 which was good timing considering the long line that had already started. I got a wristband for the handprint ceremony later. Yes!
When we got into the theatre, The Rock came and greeted people with selfies, Periscope and submitted Q&As from Twitter and from fans in the crowd. He was so cool, making jokes and just having a good time. I really like the guy and he is a great entertainer. Just being the presence of the legend was great and I tried to take as many pictures as I can from it.
CHECK OUT THE PICTURES HERE.
See that post? I was one of the five to post a comment. I just wrote “Me plz” in the comment. I knew that me being quick was the key to the whole thing so I didn’t even bother spelling correctly. I was contacted and now I await my prize!

Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter.
When I watched the first Captain America movie, I was crushing on Agent Peggy Carter. I don’t know if it was because Hayley Atwell was a new face to me or it was her British accent. But I really enjoyed her in the movie and I was heartbroken that it would be her only major role in the movie series. But when I found out that they would be making a mini-series of her character, I was so excited.
So this morning I finally got to watch the show and I loved it. It was a great story of her trying to prove to her sexist co-workers that she is more than just a pretty face. And she did prove that she was more than just that. In fact, she kicked ass.
So when I decided to go to the show’s Facebook page to catch up on updates, I saw this one comment that made me stop dead in my tracks.
So let me get this straight. You are all surprised?
Did you see the trailer? What idiot approved this movie to be made? Then when we all heard about it, who thought it was a good idea?
A movie about assassinating North Korea’s leader? What if North Korea made a movie about assassinating Obama? Would that fly?
It’s a dumb premise that obviously would offend some people. And because of an anonymous threat, Sony caved. Good. This was just bad to begin with. Too bad all that money was wasted for nothing.
Or maybe there was no movie and this was a calculated publicity stunt? Oooh. Hollywood got us!
