    Saw it yesterday, didn't get shot.
    It's really well done, I enjoyed it immensely.
    It made me cry.
    Two thumbs up.

    It was.
    They are talking about doing a follow up movie covering the Snoop, Tupac and Warren G years. I hope they do.

    The actor they cast as Tupac looks so much like him, it was creepy.

    I liked it.

    I thought it was gonna be lame and have the actors talk like they were from NY or some shit, but it was really good.

    Ice Cube's son looks and acts just like him.

    This is me being overly analytical, but I hated that they had them wearing fitted caps when no one wore fitted caps back then and Eazy-E was wearing a black white sox cap in '86.

    Those didn't come out until around '91 (I remember when I bought one).

    I'm done now.

    I hated the guys that played Snoop and Warren G.

    They looked nothing like them.

    But, the guy that played Tupac DID play him well.

    "Bye, Felicia."

    :jj:


    I also liked the scene where they show Cube recording "No Vaseline."

    That was big shit back then.

    No. There is an orgy scene and a lot of violence.
