Vince Reviews Movies (Without Details or Spoilers): Straight Outta Compton

So I was pretty excited to see this movie and let me tell you, it was terrific. I think if I had to use one word to describe this movie it would be "terrific."

Right from the start they introduce the members of the famous rap group N.W.A. as their early selves. Eazy E (Spoiler Alert: His name is Eric Wright in real life. Sorry I know I said no spoilers my bad no more of that) is a great character. He is the leader from the start even though Dr. Dre (Nobody calls him doctor in the movie for a while though. Sorry I spoiled that too my bad again) is the talented DJ of the crew. Ice Cube is cool, don't wanna spoil anything about him but I learned some stuff about him, so you might too.

Paul Giamatti plays their manager Jerry Heller. He's usually pretty good, and in this movie, he was pretty good again. Some other rappers show up too but like I said no spoilers so you'll just have to go and see it to find out. I'll tell you that you will be like "oh him I know him" to the friend you have next to you in the theater. If you go alone it's cool you'll have a good moment with yourself.

The music in the movie is N.W.A. music so it's good. If you don't like their music I wouldn't recommend the movie. I'd recommend another movie that's probably got music you like in it.

In the end it gets sad but I can't tell you why but if you know N.W.A. you know someone dies. My bad if you didn't know anyone died. Most movies have a death or two it shouldn't be a big deal to you in my opinion.

Anyway two thumbs up, good movie to see if you like good movies and good rap music.

Vince Reviews Movies (Without Details or Spoilers): Trainwreck

So I saw this movie last night. I was excited to see it because I think Bill Hader is funny and Amy Schumer can be funny and sports people are in it too so that appealed to the sports part of me.

Anyway the movie started by being not that funny. Amy Schumer wasn't very funny. Bill Hader hadn't appeared yet, so I was worried it wouldn't be funny.

Jon Glaser and Vanessa Bayer appeared as coworkers of Amy's character. They were very funny. I remember I texted my friend at this point to say "hey Jon Glaser is in this movie!" because I was pretty ecstatic about it.

Bill Hader appears and he is funny. Think he had some joke lines in there that I can't remember off hand, but trust me when you see him you'll also feel like you're getting the full Bill Hader experience.

Lebron James appears in the movie as well. Now some of you may think "well he's not that funny" but I'm here to tell you that him and other sports person WWE wrestler John Cena are actually very funny. You think because they're athletes that they can't also be funny, but by being not funny in sports they actually mask the ability to make you laugh in a movie like this one. Lebron James will make you laugh in this movie unless you're a jerk.

Amy Schumer also got better and her jokes got funnier. This was good.

There are some other funny parts in the movie but I'd rather you go to the movie and watch it. There's a pretty funny part where this one famous guy you probably know says a pretty funny remark and most of the theatre laughed but I may have gotten it on a deeper level than the rest based on my sports knowledge, See if you can spot that part, if you can, let me know and I'll tell you if yeah it was the part I was thinking too.

I give this movie two thumbs up because why not life is short enjoy movies.
