Movie Review by Kristin: LONG SHOT

Ahhhhh!!!

A Charlize Theron & Seth Rogen team up is everything I never knew I needed! You’ll understand once you see LONG SHOT for yourself!

SYNOPSIS: Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. Smart, sophisticated, and accomplished, she’s a powerhouse diplomat with a talent for…well, mostly everything. Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted and free spirited journalist with a self-destructive streak. The two have nothing in common, except that she was his baby sitter and first crush. When Fred unexpectedly reunites with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humor and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte impulsively hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors. A fish out of water on Charlotte’s elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamourous and high stakes lifestyle. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance that becomes embroiled in a series of dangerous and outlandish incidents.

What did I think of the movie, you ask?

Admittedly, I didn’t know much about it going into the screening, but I walked out wanting to see it again. It has the perfect blend of comedy, politics, sarcasm, romance & more comedy sprinkled over everything else you can think of that makes a movie great. The whole thing actually really surprised me!

Even my brother enjoyed it & he hates when comedies have any kind of romance in them lol. He thinks it waters down the funny. But not this time!

Charlize Theron is incredible as she tackles the role of an extremely powerful woman (which . . . GIRL POWER, am I right?) & a comedic genius, I dare say! Her on-screen chemistry with Seth Rogen is great & they really make quite the dynamic duo. O’Shea Jackson, Jr. also stands out as the comedic bestie of Seth Rogen’s character. Can I just say that we need O’Shea in more roles like this??

If cursing, drugs & sex aren’t your thing, you might want to skip this movie, but you’d be doing yourself a huge disservice. Yes, those things (mostly the cursing) are consistent throughout, but they all fit so perfectly. Give it a chance, like I did, and you can thank me once you’ve seen it this Friday, May 3rd!

Pitbull (& cast) visit Wynwood mural created for upcoming film, Straight Outta Compton!

On Friday, July 24, to celebrate the release of Straight Outta Compton, a mural was unveiled at the famous art district of Wynwood in Miami. The mural was created by a talented group of Latino artists known as TATS CRU.

The mural honors several Miami artists that have made an impact in the world of music – specifically hip hop and rap as well as the film Straight Outta Compton.

Stars from the film, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Jason Mitchell, as well as original member of NWA, Ice Cube and director F. Gary Gray were on-site to personally check out the mural.

Straight Outta Compton is a biopic directed by the incredible F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job, A Man Apart, Law Abiding Citizen).   The film follows five young men from Compton, California in the mid-1980s, and their quest to create reality rap. Dr. Dre (Corey Hawkins), Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson, Jr.), Eazy-E (Jason Mitchell), MC Ren (Aldis Hodge) and DJ Yella (Neil Brown, Jr.) use their experiences with police brutality, women and life in the hood to speak truth to their audience. Coming together as N.W.A., the group changed the music industry by speaking honestly about issues that were banned during that generation. Figuring out the business, who to trust and how to survive as a family are all aspects at the forefront of this story, and it’s one we can all understand.

The performances in this film were absolutely incredible. The casting was spot on, and almost made you feel like you were watching the real N.W.A. The dialogue had the entire theater laughing during a lot of the scenes, which was great. If you’ve seen any of his other films or music videos, you already know that F. Gary Gray has a genius eye for filmmaking, and this film was no different.

I’ll admit that, going into this film, I didn’t have very high expectations, BUT after watching it…I can honestly say that I loved it! It took me back to a time when real hip hop with actual lyrics was important, and we got to see how these labels and careers really took off with no regard to the abusive authority figures that were trying to hold them down because of the color of their skin.

After the film, there was a Q&A with F. Gary Gray, Ice Cube, O’Shea Jackson, Jr. and Jason Mitchell that was hosted by DJ Laz, and it was nothing short of amazing. You can tell the group really got along and worked hard to put this film together. Please see the video of the Q&A below:

Make sure to see Straight Outta Compton in theaters on August 14, 2015.

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON – In Theaters August 14

In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had: their music. Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural rebels—armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent—stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world’s most dangerous group, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today.

Straight Outta Compton stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, and is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Tomica Woods-Wright, Matt Alvarez, Gray and Scott Bernstein. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Adam Merims, David Engel, Bill Straus, Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni. http://www.straightouttacompton.com
