GO SEE “STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON”!!!

I saw it last night and again this afternoon. It’s one of the best films I’ve ever seen. A master class in how to make a biopic. The best casting I’ve ever seen for a film based on real people. I was emotionally involved from the first scene down to the last. So emotionally-involved that throughout the movie my heart raced, I cheered, I sang along to music that has been an important part of my evolution, I fist-pumped, I laughed, my eyes teared.
