NO POPCORN #003 | The Dirt / Straight Outta Compton

NO ENCORE at the movies returns with a double bill.

First up, Dave Hanratty and David Higgins ingest about as much of yawn-some Motley Crüe tribute The Dirt as they can stomach.

The main event, however, looks at the life and times of the explosive N.W.A. as F. Gary Gray’s 2015 effort Straight Outta Compton comes into focus.

Does the movie do a good job of highlighting the cultural impact of N.W.A.?

Was the casting on point?

Did we need the parade of cameos?

Is Paul Giamatti wearing a wig?

And how does that F. Gary Gray filmography hold up?

All that and much more discussed…
