Fucking awesome movie about South Korean rebels attempting to assassinate a corrupt general during Japan's occupation of Korea. It's stylistically similar to many other movies about crazy assassination plots (some parts reminded me of Bodyguards and Assassins, although that movie was made in a completely different country, and it was about people trying to stop an assassination), but it really found a way to stand out from the crowd. At first, I thought it was simply an okay movie, but it just got better and better as it went on. There's a bit of comedy here and there, with some jokes being legitimately clever and others coming off as kind of cliche, but overall it was pretty charming. I felt that the dialogue was mostly pretty strong, and there are some great memorable lines.

There are a few scenes where the movie shows and talks about the atrocities committed against the Korean people by Japanese soldiers, including the slaughter of civilians, and I noticed on my way out of the theater that a few older people in the audience were crying. It's not the most historically accurate movie ever, but it seems like it still managed to remind some people of a very real and very dark point in time.

Demitri Martin - Live *At The Time

This showed up on Netflix randomly, so I decided to watch it. I've always loved his one liners and his sense of humor so I knew i'd like this. However, I didn't realize how much I'd like it. He certainly goes beyond what he's done before and really knows what's funny and what's not. Definitely a good use of your time if you have the time. I laughed the entire way through.

I Dream of Wires

The history of the synthesizer. Highly recommended for the instrument porn element. I'd also recommend it to anyone who talks **** on electronic music. It's on Netflix, you have no excuse.

Straight Outta Compton is a few things, big, messy and epic. One thing it isn't is drab. People are complaining the third half of the film sort of drags, I didn't feel that way at all. Their rise to the top is brief but electrifying, the soundtrack naturally on point. The performances AT TIMES were a little basic but Cube, Dre, and Eazy hold the weight of this massive film on their gangsta little shoulders. E's death made me choke up. As for Yella and Ren, their screen time isn't much, maybe spinoff films? Cinematography was excellent, acting great, script was good, and Suge terrifying. As far as one of hip-hop's best act's, this film does NWA justice. You have just read a review of the strength of street knowledge

4/5
