Our two resident movie buffs, DJ Nyke and The Tallest DJ In America - Aaron Traylor, tackle the biggest movie out right now, which is quite possibly this summer's first official blockbuster, the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton.
Ride Along was one of the surprise hits of 2014, making a massive pile of cash in the traditionally slow month of January. A sequel was inevitable. Like clockwork, Ride Along 2 is set to arrive almost exactly two years to the day after the first film. Which means the second outing of Ice Cube and Kevin Hart’s mismatched buddy cops was written, shot, edited and will be released in the space of 728 days.
When the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton hits theaters this week, it will star Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre. But did you know Dre was originally supposed to be played by Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan, who dropped out because of scheduling conflicts with Fantastic Four? That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which takes you through South Central for a trip into Straight Outta Compton!
After rumors of the fabled Detox album, for more than a decade, Dre has finally admitted to finishing an album (albeit secretly), which will serve as the soundtrack for the new Straight Outta Compton movie.
Actor and rap legend Ice Cube can be pretty intense -- it's part of his charm, really! -- and his signature angry face and enraged voice only add to the laughs in this week's '22 Jump Street.' (Yes, pretty much just like they did with 2012's '21 Jump Street'). Cube is so intense, in fact, that he can make anything (even nice things) sound super-serious, a skill that Jimmy Kimmel put to the test on his show last night.
