Watch Straight Outta Compton - Alternative Versions.
I've been writing reviews for IMDb for ten years, and I think something
fishy is going on here. STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON is getting very, very
high reviews from the vast majority of IMDb reviewers -- but the nine
and ten- star reviews are all getting pelted with "negative" marks,
earning scores of "1 out of 15" likes.
So what's the problem? The problem is that this movie wasn't supposed
to be a hit. The mass audience wasn't supposed to respond to the story
of young black men facing oppression and coming out on top. The
American people were not supposed to see the real truth about how their
police treat minorities every day.
Quick, let's bury the good reviews! Let's spawn a phony backlash! Let's
discredit Dr. Dre and Ice Cube on the basis of things they did twenty
years ago. Oh, and let's all get sentimental about Eazy E because he's
dead, and young black men are okay once they're dead. The dead ones are
no longer scary and threatening.
The problem with this movie is that the people who made it actually
dared to portray young, angry black men as heroic, not as criminals or
predators. It's okay to glamorize white criminals, because Hollywood
was built on that. From PUBLIC ENEMY to THE GODFATHER, white audiences
have always loved to sentimentalize their own criminals. But you can't
do that with black men who rap about crime, even when they aren't
actually criminals themselves. When Cagney postures like a thug in some
ancient piece of crap that's cool. But when black men do it today
that's dangerous and irresponsible!
There are very powerful elements in this country that are terribly
frightened by this movie. They're frightened because this movie gets
white audiences to see young black men as something other than
dangerous criminals. The scenes of NWA being roughed up by police are a
terrible threat to the powerful elements in our society, who stay in
power only by keeping white people scared of black men. They can't
tolerate the idea of black male victims, so they instantly start a
media backlash portraying the victims as criminals.
I say this is a good movie, a powerful, exciting film that presents a
side of American life that is almost never seen on the screen. I know
I'm not going to get many likes for this review, but what the hell.
I've got enough already.
