    I finally got around to watching this masterpiece and that is exactly what it was: a masterpiece. Best movie I have seen in a long time. I'm starting to think there may have been something to the sentiment that the Academy is racist.

    Because it was a VH1 caliber movie with a huge budget for extras in the concert scenes. The movie's own saving grace was casting the incomparable Paul Giamatti. But, overall, nothing to write home about. :coffee:

    Wat? It was a good movie, but a 'masterpiece'? The actor who plays Eazy and Giamatti stole the show.

    You must not watch a lot of great movies.

    the 'Academy' is the biggest bunch of lefties imaginable, and you think they're racists?

    I didn't delete it from my DVR after watching it so I know it was great, not just good.

    You would think that it would've received every award possible just for their song "Fuck the Police" alone.
