Straight Outta Compton (2015)
N.W.A (Not. What. Appened)
As a white Englishman, I loved N.W.A. back in the day mainly due to their controversy and anti-establishment lyrics. This is exactly why I loved The Sex Pistols and punk rock 10 years before that.
But this movie is just a con job, it's so disingenuous, and false. There are so many facts, and people ignored in this ego trip of a movie it insults our intelligence. But with the group involved as producers, and advisers, what do you expect but a pompous and narcissistic movie.
The two stars are for the music and the cool Lowriders in the movie, but also the feeling of the late 80's is very well realised and the gig performances are pretty well staged.
The Flash (2014)
One Trick Pony
Okay, The Flash, can run and move fast, and that's about it.
This is a pretty boring 'Super Hero', and is in the bargain basement of powers and abilities, and I can't see this show getting any better with this one premise.
The Barry Allen character is just so much like Peter Parker, it adds to the dullness of the show. The other characters are just cardboard, clichéd, and forgettable, and not one of them is likable.
The so called mysteries surrounding Flash, are not at all gripping, and I don't find myself interested in finding out there conclusion.
The only point worth mentioning is the visuals, especially when Flash battles the villain in the pilot episode.
I'd say this show is strictly for under 10's only.
